Colibri

Native Lossless Audio for macOS with BS2B support

Colibri is a native macOS audio player built from scratch on top of the award-winning BASS technology, supports cristal-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.

Saves your battery
Colibri uses a barely noticable amount of computing power during the playback of your music.

Plays your audio
- FLAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, APE, TTA, DSD, WavPack
- Ogg Vorbis, MP1/MP2/MP3 and AAC/M4A
- network streams/online radio
- Chiptune and Tracker music
- MOD and MIDI files (with per song SoundFont support)
- 10-band Equalizer
- Automatic Sample Rate Switching

Handles CUE Sheets
Reads, processes - and to some extent - sanitizes cue sheets

Supports gapless playback
Colibri is extensively designed from the ground-up to provide a true gapless listening experience - with or without using a Cue Sheet.

Picks up where you left off
Saves your current playlist upon quitting and re-opens your songs when you start it up again.

Avoids most problems
Colibri does its' best to avoid most problems before, during and after playback.

Understands your language
Colibri is capable of rendering the song information as it was intended to be shown: of all the tried metadata it had no problem with displaying cyrillic or kanji/katakana/hiragana characters mixed with ASCII.

Respects your privacy
Colibri does not phone home, collect usage data or modify files in any way.

Displays album art - Colibri displays embedded cover art for FLAC files and ID3/iTunes artwork metadata for other files (mainly M4A / ALAC and MP3). When that yields not results then it looks in the folder where the current song resides for a cover art image.

Resides in your Menu Bar
Colibri can place an unobtrusively small icon in the Menu Bar for easy access and playlist control

Integrates with Finder
Colibri conforms all of Apple's strict requirements

Adjusts to your Display
Colibri's interface elements scale themselves nicely on every screen resolution and pixel density.

What's New

Thank you for using Colibri! This update fixes bugs introduced in the previous version and a few old ones. Happy listening!

ENHANCEMENTS

- Added file size limit for ZXTune processing (Settings -> Behavior)
- Previous button now acts more like the one on CD players: if pressed less than 4 seconds into the song it goes back one track. However, after 4 seconds have passed it first skips to the beginning of the current song
- Remove song got an extended behavior as well: If a song is playing then selecting all song and pressing remove would protect the currently played song. However, if only the currently played song is selected then playback will be stopped and the song will be removed. This is to eliminate the need of pressing stop then remove.
- Added Factory Reset button to Help
- Added Window -> Show Colibri Main Window

BUGS FIXED IN THIS UPDATE

- Colibri would not be the focused app when launched
- the Album column wouldn't always auto-resize with the window
- Open All Files From Folder would not work
- multiple crashes and inconsistencies related to Sandbox / User Defaults
- redone main window scaling to fix display problems on macOS versions 10.10 and 10.11
- fixed label positioning errors visible on macOS 10.10 / 10.11 / 10.12
- recompiled BS2B from scratch to fix macOS 10.10 Yosemite support problems
- recompiled BASSZXTUNE from scratch to fix macOS 10.11 El Capitan support problems
- parallelized theme color fill drawing to avoid flicker under high CPU load
- changing Menu bar options would cause Colibri to crash
- loading multiple files at once could cause crashing
