Tuesday January 28, 2014 4:00 AM PST by Richard Padilla
Coppertino's Vox music player today received a new update, bringing a refreshed design that displays album art and hides playback controls until needed, along with new features such as gapless playback and improved searching across devices and file locations. The update also features improved multi-device support and bug fixes addressing previous issues with radio stations and general stability.

Well known in the Mac community for delivering gorgeous sound, intuitive user features and flexible file support, VOX 2.0’s most exciting update is the completely redesigned smart interface, which now slickly displays album art; seamlessly tucks away controls until needed, and offers perhaps the most lightweight, flexible, modern music player available for OS X. Additionally, Mac fans asked and Coppertino listened. VOX 2.0 now features gapless playback that eliminates pauses between audio tracks.

VOX 2.0 updates include:
- New playlist formats for export;
- Smarter searching across all devices and file locations;
- Improved multi-device support via the Audio MIDI;
- Several bug fixes address some minor issues that occurred when changing radio stations, stability when handling high loads and with services support.

Shame that you lose the Radio feature devs offered MR members when the app first launched back in August :(


For the radio, try this: http: //coppertino.com/vox/unlockradio.php?code=RUVOX

Does anyone know what it means that Vox imports iTunes music? Does it double the space and create it's own library or does it share the library?

It just uses/scans your iTunes Library and plays the music from there. So no copies will be created.


But does anyone know if you can apply effects again? I heard that Vox had this feature but it was removed. Would be great to play my music with 432 Hz again.

Nice update, but a couple of minor gripes.

It's not displaying album art in the player but it is in the Dock icon :confused: The previous version did display it in the player (but just a small icon in the top left corner).

In the previous version the currently playing track was displayed in yellow/orange - title, artist, etc. - but in the version the only indication is that the track number is replaced by a small equaliser icon which makes finding the current track in large playlists a bit tricky - have to scroll through slower.

Great player though. I mainly use it for playing FLACs to save having to convert to ALAC for iTunes.
