    Did some research and apparently there's an equalizer API built into Android (since Gingerbread), so I'll definitely investigate adding equalizer functions.
    Excellent! Thanks a lot!

    I've only just started playing with it, but so far, it is truly an excellent music player! I like the elegant interface and the many options, like the ability to change the various menu colors, the auto-playlists and the ease of use in general.

    The only thing I noticed is the lyrics display doesn't seem to recognize the line breaks of embedded lyrics. I've been using "The Godfather" software to embed lyrics in all my MP3 for the last couple of years and they display fine in players like Winamp and others, but in Remix, everything is "jammed packed" together...

    Other than that, it's great, keep up the good work!

    Can you email me one of the files so I can try it out on my device? I should be able to determine which line break character it's using and fix it so it displays properly. In the email, please type out a few of the lyric lines and indicate what it should look like (vs. what it actually looks like).

    I'm getting pretty impressed here. Finds more lyrics than anything associated with any of the other players I've tried, including musixmatch, tunewiki, poweramp, and the distribution player. Found Portuguese lyrics to Jobim's songs, and even some forties jazz. In fact, only LyricFind did better and it only finds lyrics (isn't a player).

    Suggestion: import playlists from other players, and such as power amp.

    Sound seems clear and undistorted to me (listening through a bluetooth connection to my hearing aids.)

    Plus the downloaded lyrics are embedded directly into the music file so you only have to download them once!

    Music Player (Remix) uses the standard playlists saved in the central Android media database (accessible to all music apps). It's not going to support any proprietary playlists that other 3rd party apps are saving. In Remix, I'm trying to keep everything universal. Just like it's doing with lyrics and album art (both embedded directly in the music files so any app can access them), it's going to use the globally-accessible Android playlists.

    Sound seems clear and undistorted to me (listening through a bluetooth connection to my hearing aids.)
    Good to hear (no pun intended!)

    Any beta testers running Android 4.2? Is everything working ok?

    Also anyone on Jellybean (4.1 or 4.2), can you see if gapless playback works?

    You're going to have to be more specific than that. On what screen are you scrolling? And what exactly are you scrolling? And what does "wigs out" mean? Can you provide a screenshot?

    Also with any bug/issue report, please indicate which Android OS version you're using, whether you have a custom ROM, and whether you're rooted...and of course which device you're using (which you already specified).

    Please indicate which version of Android you're using (4.1, 4.1.1, 4.2, etc.)

    Do the other menus (left-side, bottom-side) do the same thing?

    In regards to the album art thing, can you specify the exact steps to re-create the issue? "I went back to Otis" could mean a lot of things. I need to know exactly what you're doing to make the issue occur.

    Here"s the screen shots from the other 2. 4.2.1 Build. Basically I picked an album art for dock of the bay it had none played a couple of songs picked an album art for weezer. I then backed up a couple of songs and dock of the bay had weezer so then redid it. I then went to weezer and Otis was there. I tried for Taylor Swift and she is just there..

    It doesn't display like this in the Android 4.2 emulator. I'll try to implement a fix for it in the next beta, but I'll kind of be flying blind since I can't recreate the issue. So when the next beta is released, please let me know if you still see these visual glitches in the menus.

    I assume you were doing the album art on the Now Playing screen. So when you downloaded album art for Weezer, did you wait for it to finish downloading before you switched songs (i.e. the album art notification at the top of the screen disappeared)? If so, did the Weezer album art update after the notification was removed?

    If you go the Weezer song now, does it show the correct album art?

    Also it would be really helpful if you could list (in a bulleted list) the exact steps you take. For example

    1) Go to Now Playing screen. Playing "<artist name> - <song name>".
    2) While song is playing, tap "..." above album art and select "Download Album Art" from menu.
    3) Choose album art. Notification appears at the top of the screen. Continue playing same song.
    4) Album art for current song updates after the notification disappears.
    5) Press next (on album art) to switch tracks. Now Playing "<another artist> - <another song>".
    6) etc..

    Something is going on with the album art... I did an animals song and I have it displaying on a bunch of the beach boys which I have not tried to do anything to.. The Otis choice is still on weezer. Otis is on Ted Nugent also which I find funny.. Sorry I know we are working out bugs.. Aerosmith has Otis and the animals and the song that had an aerosmith cover is still there. I didn't try to do anything to them either.

    Please try to list out specific steps on what you're doing (per my previous post). Saying "Aerosmith has Otis" could mean many different things. Is the Aerosmith song displaying the incorrect album art on the Now Playing screen? On the Songs screen? On the Albums screen? On all screens?

    This is the first I've heard of any issue like this from any beta tester. I haven't seen any issues related to album art on my devices. So I need to understand exactly what you're doing and exactly what you're seeing on exactly which screens.

    Can you load up a song, download album art for it, verify it's not displaying properly, then email me (hedami DOT support AT gmail DOT com) the music file so I can check it out? In your email please include a screenshot of that song displaying the incorrect album art.

    That's what I'm doing as you described. I let it download and display. Some songs with no album art remain untouched other ones have the covers... Of Otis or the animals.. Ok just put it in shuffle and watched when I went from song to song if the album is listed as music then this occurs...

    Here you go. See the music after the song name that is what might be occurring with my songs... I'm sorry if its cause of me not labeling correctly..

    Mislabeled music files is a possible cause. The way the album art downloading works is it downloads the album art for the selected song and then embeds that album art within any songs within the album of that song. So if you have different artists being lumped together in one album, that may be the issue.

    If you tap the "..." on the Now Playing screen (above the album art) and select "View Album", does it show multiple artists' songs in that album?

    Yep it does. I have songs from way back when you didn't have that info. Ya know what I mean? I will check out the visuals when you release the next beta and let you know how it looks on the nexus 4 when you release .

    Well that explains that mystery (with the album art)!

    Yeah let me know about the visual glitches. Hopefully the update I made will fix it; however I can't be confident since my Android 4.2 emulator never did it to begin with. I really need to get a 4.2 device at some point.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one with a music collection like that so you can put a disclaimer in . As far as the visuals I know you will work it out. The only android app that comes close to yours in functionality is the Yamaha one for my receiver. It rocks..

    Yeah I'll definitely do something in regards to the album art issue. Probably will have an option to not auto-save the album art to all the songs on the same album.

    Thanks I'm glad you like the app!
