[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - Independent developer Sejin Kim today is pleased to introduce Funi Player 1.01 for iOS, his music-editing app that gives users an innovative way to listen to and enhance the songs in their music collection. Users may isolate the vocals or instruments, adjust the speed of the tracks, or listen to songs backwards in this powerful Music editing application. Taking music listening to a new level, Funi Player users can create custom recordings of edited music creations for karaoke, artistic creation, musical practice or fun. Using Funi Player's new technology, which requires iOS 5.0 or later, songs are all playable in stereo sound with or without effects, creating a true stereo sound editing experience.
When users launch Funi Player (pronounced Funny), they are taken to a screen that features the same menu as the iOS Music player, and it contains their entire media library. Listeners may choose a song from Playlists, Artists, Songs, or Albums. Once a song is selected, users have the option of listening to the song as it was originally recorded in Normal Play, or listening to music in one of Funi Player's innovative music effect modes including: Acappella Effect, Vocal Removed Effect, Reverse Play and Speed Control Play.
When listening to a song in Acappella Effect, the instruments are removed leaving only the voice of the singer or singers. Isolating the voice gives singers the opportunity to hear intricate vocals, without the distraction of the instrumental tracks. While the song is playing in Acappella Effect, users may pause, play, turn the effect on and off, and record the song in this effect.
Musicians may also listen to only the instrumentals of a song in the setting Vocal Removed Effect. This setting, which removes the vocals from a track, includes the option to play, pause, record and turn the effect on and off. Perfect for karaoke, users may use this setting to play the instrumentals of a track while adding their own vocals.
The Reverse Play option of Funi Player takes a song, vocals and instruments and plays the entire song backwards. The record option allows users to record this different version of a song. At any time during this effect, users may play, pause, or turn the effect on or off.
The Speed Control Play option gives users even more creativity with songs in their music library. Users may adjust the speed of a song by slowing it down by increments of .1 times to a maximum of .5 times slower speed. Users may also increase the speed of a song in .1 times increments to a maximum speed of 2.0 times.
Funi Player includes many additional features including links to YouTube Videos, Lyrics, and Ringtones in iTunes. The YouTube Videos tab takes the user to a list within the app of related YouTube Videos. The Lyrics tab takes the user to an in-app page of lyrics for the particular song. The Ringtone in iTunes tab launches iTunes and takes users to a list of related available ringtones.
Funi Player lets users share their edited musical creations. Users may record music with enhanced effects and send as a WAV file via email. Funi Player also supports AAC compression, allowing very large recordings to be sent via email with ease.
In addition, the app supports the following song play features: play and pause, play collections, play next, play previous, scrubbing, now playing button, searching, index, lyrics, repeat, shuffle, background play and remote control. Once a user has synced a device to iTunes, Funi Player updates the media library automatically, allowing for seamless integration with the user's media selections.
