Colibri is a native macOS audio player built from scratch on BASS technology.
Colibri supports crystal-clear bit-perfect playback of all popular lossless and lossy audio formats, uses only a tiny amount of computing power, and offers a clean and intuitive user experience.
What’s New in Colibri 1.8.5
- Colibri can now play all formats of MOD music that the BASS engine supports:
- Media Foundation (MF)
- Impulse Tracker
- FastTracker 2
- ScreamTracker 3
- Two sample mixing options are available for MOD music:sinc interpolated and non-interpolated playback
- The default sample mixing can be adjusted within Settings -> MOD
- It is also possible to set the sample mixing on a per song basis via Right/Alt-clicking on the song in the playlist
- Switching between the two interpolation methods is done on-the-fly while playback is running making it easier to choose
- Infinite MOD looping instructions are supported and can be turned on within Settings -> MOD
Midi Music Support:
- Colibri can now chirp all the MIDI formats that are supported by the BASS engine
- A free SoundFont is included with Colibri and is set as the default playback SoundFont
- Import your SoundFonts at Settings -> MIDI and set the best sounding one to be the default
- SoundFonts can also be applied on a per song basis:Right/Alt-click on a MIDI song in the playlist and assign one of the available SoundFonts to it switching is instant and done realtime (preserving the playhead position) making it easy to figure out which SoundFont sounds better.
- Seeking forwards/backwards 5 seconds within the current song is now possible with the keyboard arrow keys
- The Right/Alt-click menu of The Dock icon has just leveled up! It now displays a bit of song info (title/artist/album name) and also enables basic control of Colibri.
- Purge playlist when opening songs from Finder:Colibri will start with a completely empty playlist when songs are added from an external source (like Finder) if this new switchable option is turned on within Settings -> Behavior it is off by default as it removes all previously added songs from the playlist.
- When a song is added from Finder (or any external source) then it becomes selected in the playlist. When adding multiple songs, the first one will be highlighted.
Bugs Fixed In This Update:
- Pressing return twice would cause Colibri to crash
- Random loop mode would not always work after startup
- Random mode would fail to work properly if the preloaded song is removed just before playback
- Selecting and moving multiple songs in the playlist would cause them to become reversly ordered
- Playlist cursor would lose focus after starting playback/pressing next or previous
- Playlist columns would not properly restore their previous state
- Pressing media keys rapidly would cause Colibri to eat up a huge amount RAM, only to release it after a song change
- Removing multiple highlighted songs via the context menu would not remove the song it was invoked (“clicked on”) from
- Missing file type associations for supported types have been added
- Tooltip labels would remain visible “floating” even after hiding Colibri’s window
- macOS Notification Center wouldn’t always show the corresponding album art
- Fixed a critical bug within Sandbox permission handling that affected multiple parts of Colibri from starting up to album art loading
