What is Playa!TraX? What does it do?

Here is an example — streaming software is running idle in the system tray, not playing music, not doing anything. You launch a full screen game, Half-Life 2 for example, Playa!TraX on its own will immediately start playing your Half-Life 2 playlists and load a configuration (which you define) that allows you to control the music (probably through a few keys on your keyboard) without having to see the player. You switch to another game (or application) let’s say Madden NFL Football this time, once again Playa begins to play your Madden playlists, and loads an input configuration so you can control the player without having to see it, for Madden Football you probably want to control the player through a few gamepad buttons. Playa!TraX will do the same for your web browser or email client or any application or game you want. Playa!TraX is also a great everyday general use media player.

It allows convenient control of your media through almost any input device — including voice control, gamepads, joysticks, racing wheels, foot pedals or even just key board and mouse, the choice is yours. You can have as many different configurations as you like.
