The user interface is very minimal and presents you with the very basics – title of the audio file being played, the player data (audio channel stats) and the usual player controls (play, pause, stop, previous, next, volume and stereo balance). It also comes with a full-features equalizer for customizing the audio playback.

We can open an online stream in addition to local audio files using JavaMod. When we are playing a local audio file, we can save it to WAV file format simultaneously. Similarly, it can export the audio files selected from a playlist into WAV file format.

The user interface of JavaMod is very simple but it comes with some skins to make it look a little different. These skins are listed under the “Look and Feel” menu and contain skins like Metal, Nimus, Motif, CDE, Windows Classic etc.
