yes, i'm talking about a default directory.
i prefer not to use the playlists, selecting albums folder by folder,
using the file structure as if it was a library - much easier and
simpler i find

yes, that'd be great. so long as it doesn't slow things down too much

i'd say: keep it simple and leave the sliders out - i know what a hard
job it is mixing and mastering music for hundreds of different
playback devices, and i'm not sure what we can add by clumsily
tweaking the sound with a software EQ.
i like intone *a lot* as it is. i think with the above things, it'd be
perfect. so many apps get more and more bloated, adding (imo)
unnecessary features. but that's just me
oh, one other thing - can you make the play button change to a pause
symbol when it's playing?
