Not the most elegant interface but it does the job. Only issue I've encountered is that it will alphabetize audio tracks regardless of the order in which you drag them into the app's window. Let's say you have four files named "01-first", "02-first", "01-second", and "02-second", and you drag them into the app's window in that order. What you end up with is this:

See the problem? The workaround is to rename/renumber all of your files to get them in the proper alphabetical order you wish to have them play. Yeah; it sucks. Go pay for an app then. :D
