Will the multida phone has the option to increase the playback speed of sound files played (I often listen to audiobooks at 2.5-4x speed). This seems like a very easy feature to program into the music player, but I think it could also be overlooked hence why I am asking. This is actually the most important feature for me for the phone (along with signal)
To add more questions on the audio player:
What about m4a (ALAC)?
What will be the option for playlist selection? Is there going to be an option to select folders to play?
I’d like to add a wish for the audio player. A setting in the desktop app to mark an audio file to remember playback position. Good for longer downloaded audio files/podcasts.
Hey @infiriel, playlists will be available and you’ll be able to organize your music in the desktop app then sync it with Mudita Pure. We support FLAC. Due to the audio quality, these formats are practically identical. Plus, ALAC is a lossless alternative to FLAC designed by Apple so we don’t really want to use it.
Thank you for the suggestion @Alex.
Unfortunately, Mudita Pure won’t have the option to slow down or speed up playback. It might be possible in future but our engineering team have not confirmed that with me yet.
This is a nice idea. I’ve asked the engineering team about it, so when they let me know, I’ll get back to you!
What needs to be done to get this feature into the phone? It’s incredibly simple to design (easier than giving it the ability to play another file format). This is the single most important feature for me in the phone. Do I have any option besides withdrawing my pledge for it?
I’d be interested to know what you do @Alex. Are you an engineer? I’ve spoken to the team, the phone’s design has been finalised, there are to be no more features added, including the one you’ve suggested. Please get in touch with us via email if you have any further concerns.
That’s definitely a big +1 for me. I suspect a lot of Mudita users will also be audiobook/podcast fans, and so having the ability to automatically save where you are up to, or to be able to bookmark, would be great.
I think a device like Mudita needs to aim to make a users life tranquil and stress-free, so remembering where you are at, fits in perfectly with those aims.
