It looks too much like the iPhone app. I don't like that it doesn't have the Play triangle on the album's song listing showing which track is currently playing. I do like the feature of changing the size of the album covers, making it much easier to read when large and listing more albums in view when small.
Is the entire app beta or just the Internet Radio vTuner? I got the impression it’s just the Radio vTuner.
I’ve always been disappointed that the Aurrender Conductor app doesn’t support Deezer. I use both Qboz and Deezer. In my opinion, Deezer is way more intuitive and easier to use!
Lovin' the Wiki link!
Glad I'm not dealing with this anymore. Replaced an Aurender with a Lumin and bought a lifetime subscription to Roon. Was really hoping that Aurender would have been compatible by this time... But the Lumin is really good anyway.
Now I think after using Roon I won't be able to go back to somebody's quirky interface.
I used Conductor 4 last night and it is pretty good Some new features like being able to choose the size of album art when viewing a grid
The best feature is being able to render the image landscape. I think it actually presents better and is easier to use landscape. I hounded them about that.
I have had the Beta V Tuner a few months and like it a lot No album art when using V Tuner but it does show artist and song.
new user feedback forum link too
Unfortunately older Android users that can’t update to OS 13 are out of luck. I was long overdue for a new tablet so it was a good excuse to get one. It’s more powerful than my P.C. , it’s amazing what it can do . I do everything on a tablet , I was able to install 4 on an old iPad but I like the Android platform
Does the new Aurender conductor V4 App provide album sorting options for Qobuz favorites?
For example, can I sort my albums in alphabetical sequence by artist name, date added, alphabetical sequence by album name and date added.
What new features does it have? What else can it connect to beside Tidal and QoBuz?
@fthompson251, Aurender Conductor V4 is a beta version meaning everything might not work as it should.
As a product beta tester, please report your issues back to Aurender using the remote support request, assuming it works. If not, please send them an email.
I suggest send them all your product issues. Thanks
@marco1 No. I read somewhere that it is a metadata incompatibility between Shoutcast and Radio Paradise. Artist and song show on other Internet radio stations such as the JazzRadio Premium streams. I listen to that a lot and the song and artist show briefly when first connecting and continually if you touch on the radio icon in the upper left corner of V4.
Artist and song also show on the SuperStereo stations but each of those stations cut out after a minute or two of play. Zappa Radio (FLAC) also shows artist and song title but the bit rate seems low (e.g., poor quality audio).
@hgeifman it’s my understanding that V4 is a general release, not beta. Only the Vtuner option is beta. If V4 is beta, it is not indicated so in the app. You are correct that issues should be reported. I don’t work for Aurender, I’m just a satisfied user of their products.
They seemed to have changed things in V4 that worked fine in V3. whoever is in charge of their product management should be fired. You don’t fix what isn’t broken. And I haven’t seen any real-worthwhile improvements either. someone there doesn’t know how to product manage or upgrade-enhance software.
I’ve downloaded Conductor 4. It’s terrible. I load songs into the queue and they are played in a random order even though I don’t want random play. What used to be easy to do is now not intuitive. Conductor 3 was much better. Why break a product that works. Someone needs to yank this app and fix it!
“I load songs into the queue and they are played in a random order even though I don’t want random play”
That’s sounds like a user error….lol. Take a look at random icon, next to forward icon, very likely it’s highlighted. I have been using V4 app over a month now and never had this issue. Took me little time getting used to menu/sub menus but overall I’m very pleased with the ‘fresh’ appearance and how everything is layered intuitively.
