QuasarMX

We love music. We are passionate about it. QuasarMX is our statement of how a personal music player should be: sleek, fast and convenient – without sacrificing features and functionality for the sake of fitting on a small screen. In fact QuasarMX is the product of scratching our own itch and “dogfooding” it every single day.

We usually encourage to download, try and explore QuasarMX and its many features. However, if you are into cheap marketing talk, here it is:

Intuitive swipe user interface

Think all mobile music players have the same limited interface and feature-set? Try QuasarMX! We squeezed almost all of the functionality of desktop music players into this mobile app in a comprehensible way: Every feature has its own easily to remember screen in a horizontal spacial drawer. Swipe left or right to change between the different screens easily. The user interface is fully zoomable to make reading from a distance easy.

Cross platform

Our player runs on more mobile platforms than any other audio player out there. We support Android™, Symbian™ Anna and Belle, MeeGo™, SailfishOS™, Windows™ (PC), Ubuntu™.

The Meteora Audio Engine

High Quality Audio Filters

Our Meteora Audio Engine provides high quality audio playback with 32-bit/64-bit floating-point accuracy ensuring that no detail is lost. We don’t do fixed-point calculations and the inherent clipping of the audio signal caused by the low precision. All filters and enhancers have been hand-optimized to use ARM™ NEON™ and ARM™ VFP™ for maximum efficiency and performance.

Distortion-free playback

Filters and enhancers can add distortions when enhancing the volume beyond what can be digitally reproduced. This effect is called clipping. QuasarMX includes a novel approach that prevents clipping by analyzing and adjusting levels on-the-fly.

Excellent Power Efficiency

The Meteora Audio Engine uses dynamic latency switching to keep your smartphone and its battery cool and longer lasting.
