Colibri 1.9.1

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

Version 1.9.1:

  • Volume is now automatically raised to 100% for DSD files when DoP/DoPA mode is selected and restored to previous volume level for non-DSD files (and PCM mode)
  • Unsupported DST encoded DSD and DTS encoded WAV files will now show proper Unsupported Codec error messages
  • Finder sorting order is used to enqueueing files to the Playlist
  • Playlist will be rendered with system default monospace font when available (macOS 10.11 and up)
  • Added a 'Use Default SoundFont' option for MIDI files to the right-click context menu of the Playlist
  • Removing the default SoundFont will automatically set the next available SoundFont as the default
  • If the SoundFont list is empty, then the first SoundFont will automatically be marked as the default
  • Removing a SoundFont only causes playback restart if the currently played song is affected by the removal
  • Importing a new SoundFont will automatically set it as the default
  • New switchable option in Settings -> Playlist: "Dragging to the Playlist via Mouse / Trackpad":
    • Songs will be added at pointer position (insert)
    • Songs will be added at the end of the list (append, like before)
  • Added 'Permanent Pause' to Settings -> Behavior (Off, by default):
    • Pause will 'hold' until the Play button is pressed again
    • Switching to a different song will 'arm'/prepare the song for playback
    • Seeking repositions the playhead and it will play audio from the selected spot once unpaused
    • Removing songs from the playlist does not affect the paused state
  • Added 'Auto-Play' to Settings -> Behavior (On, by default):
    • On: Colibri automatically plays the next song
    • Off: Colibri stops when the current song ends
  • New tab in Settings: Columns
  • Columns are now sortable:
    • Click on the header once to sort playlist by that column
    • Double click switches between Ascending/Descending sorting
  • New Columns:
    • Length, kHz, Codec, Year, Track Number, Disc Number, Composer and Bit Depth
  • Playlist can now have vertical and horizontal Grids:
    • Useful for reordering / resizing
    • Set the color in Settings -> Themes
  • New Loop option 'Random Round Robin' in Settings -> Playlist:
    • Each song in the Playlist will be played once per "round"
    • When all songs were played once, a new "round" begins
  • Monospace system fonts in Title bar and Status bar (10.11 and up)

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for spreading the word. One correction: Colibri supports macOS 10.10 and up, not just 10.11
    Also feedback/support is available for K’ed versions as well, do not hesitate to shoot me an email if you need support.
