The Start of SoundsMatic

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 last.fm.
  • Focus on performance.

UWP?

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.

What’s next?

I will be posting about the project’s progress here along with all lessons learned, tips, and gotchas.
