Soube is a simple and minimalist music player with the obious functions of one, play music. But this simplicity comes with some cool features. So, I invite you to read the sections on the left to learn more about Soube features and how to use them.
Soube's been tested in:
Soube is very simple of setting up. Actually, you just need to add your root music folder (The folder where you saved all your songs), that's it.
How to add your root music folder?. Simple, if it's the first time using Soube, you can do click on the white space where there's a welcome message or going to the config icon (icon gear -> add folder). This will opend a new window where you can add your root music folder, change the language and make use of the Equalizer system.
it's very important to undertand that the root music folder is the folder where Soube will read all your music. Therefor, if you wanna add new music, you must do it directly to the root music folder you added on Soube, don't add it like you did with your root music folder in the config panel or you will overwrite the path for searching for songs.
Soube has support for the next music files:
Be awere that some music files can be damaged, and this can cause stranges results while Soube is extracting the metadata info.
With 4 simple shortcuts you can manage Soube in a common way.
Also, you have shortcuts for searching an specific song.
Tooltips are very useful when a song is larger than it's container.
You can use the Searching bar to search for a song. I developed the searching bar in a simple, cool and powerful way. just press or + to open the searching bar tool.
While you are typing, you will get a list of all the songs that match the letter or the word.
You can select the song from the list or just press the right arrowto complet the suggested song and hit .
Maybe it's not something important, but for me, having an app in my language is just something cool. Whether there are a few words or a lot.
The equalizer is simple and powerful.
It splited into 23 frequencies: 40, 80, 90, 100, 120, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 800, 1000, 1600, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000, 10000, 16000, which are based under 12db.
Some predefined frequencies: Reset (to set all on 0), Rock, Electro & Acustic.
You can also add your own settings. Just configure the frequencies and then, in the input above, type the name of your new setting.
Everytime a song is played a notification will be displayed!.
The behavior and the style of the notification will depend on the operating system you are using.
Scrolling is a way to scroll the container of your songs. Just click on the song name that you are playing at the moment and you will see how the scroll is automatically slide down/up to the song.
