Evermusic Guide: Player

Player is the main application screen where you can control player queue and playback features such as equalizer, sleep timer, audio bookmarks, and so on. Let's take a closer look at how to navigate and utilize these functions.


Accessing the Player

You can reach the full-screen player from the mini-player view. On your iPhone, you'll find this mini player located above the tab bar on the main screen. On your iPad or Mac, it's accessible from the left menu. To tuck away the mini player, tap the mini player icon and swipe it downwards. To completely hide the full-screen player, simply tap the close button located at the bottom right corner.

The most popular audio formats are supported: mpeg, aifc, 3gp, avi, aif, latm, 3gpp, m4a, loas, cdda, aac, m4p, m4b, ac3, pls, mp4v, m3u, m4r, aiff, xhe, mp1, snd, mp2, wav, qt, wave, m3u8, m4v, mp3, 3g2, caf, mp4, flac, au, w64, ec3, adts, amr, vtt, mpa, aa.


Playback Controls

At the bottom of the player screen, you'll discover essential playback controls. These include buttons like "Play," "Pause," "Next Track," and "Previous Track." There are even some hidden by default controls like "Next 30 sec" and "Previous 30 sec," which can be uncovered in the app settings. To fast forward or rewind, use a tap-and-hold gesture with the Next/Previous Track buttons. When you want to jump to a specific part of the track, utilize the playback slider.


Repeat and Shuffle

When you want to change the repeat mode, a simple tap on the repeat button will do the trick. You have several options:

"Repeat all" – for looping all tracks in your player queue.

"Repeat one" – for repeating only the current track.

"Repeat Stop" – to pause playback when the current track ends.

"Repeat None" – for letting your queue play through without repeating.


If you're in the mood for some randomness, the "Shuffle" option is your go-to. It shuffles the order of your tracks in the queue, giving you a fresh listening experience each time. You can easily switch between "Shuffle off" and "Shuffle on."


Volume Control

Find volume slider under playback controls. You can change the volume using this slider or standard volume buttons on your device. Additionally, you'll find some handy streaming buttons:

"Google Cast" lets you connect to Google Chromecast devices.

"AirPlay" allows you to link up with devices using AirPlay technology.


Google Cast

For those using Google Cast, you'll spot the Google Cast icon at the bottom of the audio player screen. Simply tap it to reveal a list of available devices. Select the one you want to connect to and start streaming your audio content. Just ensure that your Google Cast device and your iPhone/iPad are on the same Wi-Fi network. Keep in mind that not all audio formats available in the app are supported by Google Cast devices, so some tracks may not be streamable.


AirPlay

On the other hand, if you prefer AirPlay, look for the AirPlay button at the bottom of the audio player screen. A quick tap on it allows you to choose the available device to which you'd like to stream your audio content. The application even supports AirPlay2 technology, enabling you to share audio content across multiple AirPlay devices simultaneously.

Audio Equalizer

Evermusic comes packed with a versatile 10-band equalizer, complete with iPod-style presets, a preamplifier, and manual equalizer settings. To activate the equalizer, simply tap the "Equalizer" button on the volume view and toggle the switch control in the top right corner. You can select from a range of predefined equalizer presets like "Acoustic", "Bass Booster", "Classical", and more. If you're a sound enthusiast, you'll appreciate the ability to fine-tune each frequency band using sliders. Feel free to create and save your very own audio equalizer presets. If a track isn't loud enough, you can also adjust the preamplifier gain. We have more detailed instruction about how to use equalizer [here].
