Evermusic Guide: Settings

On this screen, you can access the application settings and upgrade it to the Premium version.

evermusic settings screen

Upgrade to Premium: upgrade the application to the Premium version and remove all limits. Currently, the free version of the application has one in-app purchase that allows you to remove all restrictions and upgrade to the Premium version. This is a lifetime purchase and it will work on every iOS device connected to the same iTunes account. To restore your purchase on the new iOS device just use the "Restore purchases" menu. Since the app does not have a subscription model and only a one lifetime in-app purchase - purchases on iOS and Mac versions of the app are different so you can upgrade only the version that you need.


evermusic upgrade to premium screen

Evermusic Pro (app with red icon) has the same functionality as Evermusic Free (blue icon) with activated purchase. So there is no need to install a "red" app if you have already upgraded the "blue" app with in-app purchase. These apps have different bundle id so if you activate in-app purchase in the "blue" app you will not be able to install the "red" app for free.


Yo can read more about differences between Evermusic and Evermusic premium [here]:

Restore purchases: if you already purchased the app and reinstall it again you can use this menu to restore your purchase and continue using the Premium version.

Try Premium for free: you can upgrade to the Premium version for free but for a limited time only using this menu. Just watch an advertisement or tell your friends about this app to get the Premium version for free.

General


General audio player settings for playback queue, audio output, and state-saving. Available options:

Repeat mode: change repeat mode to specify audio player behaviour when track finished playback. 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.


Shuffle mode: change tracks order randomly. This action changes tracks order in the queue and tracks are played one by one with the new order. Available values: "Shuffle off", "Shuffle on".


Spatial audio: allows you to change the audio formats applied for spatial audio. Available values: "Disabled", "Mono and stereo", "Multichannel", "Mono, stereo, and multichannel".


Audio pitch algorithm: lets you set audio pitch algoritm that will be applied for pitch correction. Available values: "Time domain", "Spectral", "Varispeed".


Audio output mode: (available on iOS only) lets you set audio output mixed mode so audio from this application will be mixed with other applications. You can find instructions about how to use mixed mode [here].


Save playback position: ensures the application saves and restores playback position for songs in your music library.


Save audio player state: saves your audio player state before closing the application, making it easy to resume from where you left off.


Once you've enabled both of these features, open any folder, album, artist, genre within Evermusic. You'll notice a "Continue Playback" button at the top of the screen, along with the last saved song playback position. To restore the audio player queue and playback progress, simply tap on the "Continue Playback" button. If you want to restore playback for an individual file, tap on that specific file.


Personalization: allows you to customize the look of the audio player screen, change available controls on the main screen of audio player, lock screen, and status bar during audio playback, and configure skip time controls. Available audio player screen styles:

"Antique" - playback slider on the top of the screen like in classic iPod. "Classical" - playback slider and controls at the bottom of the screen and actions toolbar on the top. "Modern" - minimized style for the player screen.

Song Loading: During the song loading process, you can change the network type that Evermusic uses to load songs. Available options - "Wi-Fi", "Wi-Fi and Cellular data". "Preloading time" - set buffering time interval. You may increase this value if you have a bad network connection.


Audio Equalizer: is where you can change audio equalizer configuration. More detailed instructions about how to use equalizer available [here].

Crossfade playback: allows the songs to flow seamlessly in a continuous mix. The next song begins playing a few seconds before the current one finishes. Please notice that crossfade is not available for AirPlay and Google Chromecast. On this screen you can select the duration when the current song and next song are playing simultaneously.

Audio player cache: songs in audio player queue will be downloaded automatically to provide smooth playback. If you download audio files manually you can disable this option to avoid duplicates. You can configure audio player cache size here.

Music library

Your music library settings like automatic sync, metadata reading, loading of album artworks, playlists are located here.

evermusic music library screen

Metadata Synchronization: When you import tracks into your library, Evermusic's metadata reader goes to work behind the scenes. This process reads all the metadata from your tracks and neatly organizes them by Artist, Album, Genre, and Composer. You have the flexibility to adjust the speed of metadata reading to load data faster, but keep in mind that this may consume more energy.


If you prefer, you can also disable the metadata reader and display file names instead of tag information. Importantly, the metadata reader only updates metadata within your music library; it doesn't make any changes to the files stored in your cloud account or local storage. If you ever need to edit metadata for your audio files, you can do so effortlessly using the built-in tags editor, which you can activate from the corresponding action in the options menu.

When the background synchronization checkbox is selected, the metadata reader operates in the background mode. However, it's important to note that if the application consumes significant energy while running in the background during audio playback, the iOS operating system may suspend the app.


Therefore, if you have an extensive music collection, it's advisable to utilize the desktop version of the application for metadata synchronization. You can then make use of the data backup and restore feature to transfer the synchronized music library from your desktop, which is available in the app settings. If needed, the 'Reload metadata' action can be used to flag all files in your music library as having missing metadata, prompting the metadata reader to refresh the metadata for every file in your music library.

Online Music Synchronization: Automatic online music synchronization simplifies the process of adding tracks to your library. To activate this feature, navigate to music library settings and select sync folders. Once enabled, the application scans all selected folders, identifies supported audio files, and seamlessly integrates them into your library.


You can start or stop synchronization by tapping on the corresponding menu action. Online music synchronization operates exclusively when the app is in the foreground, which means synchronization may take some time. To expedite the process, you can leave your app open, connect it to a power source, and enable the 'Screen' -> 'Always active' option in the application settings.


Alternatively, you can perform online music synchronization using the desktop version of the app and transfer the music library to the iOS version via the data backup and restore feature. You also have the option to set the frequency of online music synchronization. If set to "Immediately," online sync will initiate each time you open the application.

Offline Music Synchronization: This option scans all local folders situated in the application's "Documents" directory to identify supported audio files. All these local files are seamlessly added to your music library. It's worth noting that local files located on your device but outside this application's "Documents" directory must be manually added to the music library, as the app doesn't have access to files outside its designated directory, adhering to iOS/MacOS security protocols. Periodically initiating offline music synchronization is advisable to ensure your music library stays up to date with your local files.

Personalization: In this section, you have the flexibility to configure the music library screen style to align with your preferences. Three options are at your disposal: "Plain menu", "Grouped menu", "Tabbed menu".
