From Subsonic to Ultrasonic – Do More With Your Media!

Friday evening was a night like any other, but as it happened this particular evening inspired a change to better my circumstances and proved to be most rewarding.

I was relaxing, reading a fascinating book on copyright reform, and enjoying my latest musical acquisitions via my Subsonic media server.  But as each track concluded and the next began, I repeatedly found myself irked by a 2-second mark of silence which persistently seized my attention and vanished my cozy, zen-like musical trance.

Subsonic is a brilliant and magnificent application, but gapless playback is not among its features.  And this periodic interruption was just bothersome enough to inspire me to take pause and find a better solution.  Within a few minutes’ time, I discovered that Ultrasonic – an independently developed Subsonic client, offered continuous playback as well as genre browsing and other features not available from the official Subsonic app.

After testing the application that evening I was so delighted with the result that I set myself to the task of creating a video feature to showcase Ultrasonic and hopefully empower other users like myself to do more with their media.  Google Play reports that only ~1000 users have downloaded the app, but as you’ll see from the feature below, it’s perhaps the best under-the-radar media client out there.

Check it out!
