Today marks the official beginning of the SoundsMatic journey.
What is SoundsMatic?
SoundsMatic is a new personal project that I’ll be working on. It is a
UWP application built for the latest version of Windows 10 (as of today, that is
version 1903 - Build 18362.239).
It is a Music application with the following goals in mind:
- Focus on local music collection management including tag editing.
- Integration with 3rd party online services to provide additional features such as searching for lyrics, concert dates, charts, and more.
- Integration with Scrobbling services such as
- Focus on performance.
Yes, I want the app to run on Windows 10 Desktops, tablets, 2-in-1s, and XBox too.
Why yet another music player?
I had built my own music player before and it had features that were shaped (and even shaped) how I listen to music.
That application is still alive and published on the store. However, I want a fresh start with a new name. I want this new application to have a new code-base where I use what I have learned in the past couple of years to build a better product.
I will be posting about the project’s progress here along with all lessons learned, tips, and gotchas.
