Colibri

1.9.1
08 August 2019

Native Lossless macOS audio player.

Overview

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

Version 1.9.1:
Improved:
  • 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)

Nice and easy audio player.
Very minimal GUI (which i like a lot, actually), and artfully light on memory and cpu!
The app itself is also just about 11 MB!

The only feature i'd love to see in a future update is multiple playlists!

Hi Yazarim!

Sorry to hear that, I'm positive it's a Sandbox issue. Please try these steps:
1. Open Finder
2. Press CMD + Shift + G (or click on “Go -> Go to Folder” in the menu)
3. Enter the following: ~/Library/Containers
4. Delete the folder there named: gaborhargitai.colibri
5. Restart your Mac using the Apple Menu -> Restart

Feel free to message me here or send an email to gabor@barefootwebdesign.co.nz

Many thanks for your answer. Yes, I already thought of it. Did it and it worked. There were 2 gaborhargitai.colibri folders, don't know why.

Better than Vox: Vox has been my go to media player for my mac. But, recently, the app has gone to a subscription mode, and many features require registration. It is no more a lightweight player that it used to be. I was looking for a replacment. I find Colibri. It is great; fast, efficient. The developer is also very responsive. I requested a couple of features in Reddit. It was a nice surprise after a couple of weeks to find that the developer has implemented them all.
