Try Rocket Player. Go to Settings -> Sound -> Audio Focus and turn on "Ignore Other Apps". It should fix all your problems with sound (like it had fixed them for me, I have Galaxy S5 Neo).
Here is the link:
The application doesn't cost anything and doesn't bother you with ads. Only some advanced features require paying.
If you use another application, it may have a similar option. If it doesn't, then there might be no solution and you need to use something else, like Rocket Player I suggest above.
I self servingly need to mention my Rocket Player app.
If you don't find it simple enough, I'd love to know why. I'm working on a refresh of the app right now.
Most folks recommend PowerAmp when this question comes up, but I am a big fan of Rocket Player. Been using the premium version for years and have never had a problem.
I use Rocket Player works really well and is better than all the default music players that come with phones.
Rocket Player allows for sorting by Album Artist and has some Material Design skins (Just skins for the player , not as beautiful as Shuttle +)
Did you uninstall the other music player when switching? If you had one of them installed when trying another, it could still happen.
My go-to music player before I started streaming with Google Music was Rocket Player. You can disable the apps in the settings if you don't want to pay for the premium unlocker.
Use Rocket Player, but turn off ads. I'm thinking that's the only thing that is missing from your list.
(Settings - Show Ads - Off).
Those are two excellent lists, that I agree with for the most part, but you are missing the best music player in the Play Store: Rocket Player.
Not affiliated with them, just a very happy user for three phones and 6+ years now...
Rocket Player plus the iSyncr app should be what you're looking for. Rocket Player is just a full featured music player. The other app syncs the metadata from iTunes including start stop times.
I can't vouch for the eq, but Rocket Music Player has gapless playback and one of the color schemes changes based on album art.
(I think it also has volume normalization, but it's not amazing, in my experience.)
My app Rocket Player is capable of sorting your albums by recently added:
Here's a link to our tutorial on sorting as well, I've fast-forwarded the video to where we discuss sorting albums:
Look like you can't make playlists. You should try to find another app for your music, I use Rocket Player, you should try it
I think he may have found every single music app and rated then 1*, even Spotify and Play Music.
He seems to like this one though
+1 for Rocket Player. The best option is to select folder to scan music from even if you add/edit/delete music of you're phone, you don't need to clear the cache of media storage app or restart the phone for it. It just do it and scan it immediately. The best player tbh !!
Linkme: Music Player : Rocket Player has an upgrade to iTunes sync. Also can deal with locally stored music. You won't find one that works with Play Music if that's what you're also wanting, Google makes the API for it private.
Bot fucked up: Music Player : Rocket Player
Rocket Player uses it's own playlist system and not Android's playlist database. Give it a try and see if it can manage your playlists without problems.
As far as the music aspect goes, I went from an iPhone 4S to my HTC many years ago, and wasn't as technologically inclined then as I am now (I'm still not, but my grasp is way better). I found an app called Rocket Media Player, and it's totally free to use, you can download it onto your phone, download another part of it onto your computer, plug your phone into your computer, and a menu should pop up to begin a sync, so it'll do all the work for you. You can buy an "unlocker" for $3 that gets rid of ads and unlocks a lot of neat features as well. You can still keep using iTunes as a music player, keep adding music to iTunes, even music bought through iTunes, and that app will sync it to your android phone no problem. There is the occasional hiccup I had with it, so you just close it, unplug, and try again.
There's also plenty of themes you can download that should fill your desire to have it looking a certain way. White with accent colors, white with reversed accent colors, gray, black, etc.
Free. Does what you want. Most responsive dev ever.
The subscription version, which is a dollar a year, backs up your ratings and play list to the cloud.
I have used JRT Studio's Rocket Player rather extensively. It functions perfectly and probably works better than the vast majority of Android music players. However, its design is rather poor - sorry to say this, but it's pretty ugly.
Thus, I'd give it a 4.5 stars for function and 3 stars for aesthetics, which gives the app a rating of 3.5 that I rounded down to 3.
Suggest trying out Rocket Player - it has this setting, and autoplays on bluetooth connect when I get in the car. [link]
Just a quick question, you mentioned that the rocket player app has its own audio engine, does that apply to the free version or only the paid version.
Rocket Music plays music stored on your device and works well with android auto.
Free version has ads. Paid version doesn't (I have paid). But you don't see the ads when you're using it on android auto anyways if that's all you're using it with.
Consider using Rocket Player for all of these features!

You can use Rocket Player to disable specific folders as well as toggle .nomedia files to be on/off.
This tutorial will describe the procedure:
Likewise, you can create dynamic live list playlists in Rocket Player to display all songs from a specific year/decade for free.

> I have 16gbs of music stored on my phone. I want something that plays mp3 files, has a decent shuffle option, and saves my playlists.
Try Rocket Player. I have used it for years -- should do all you want and much more. It has an export playlist feature so you can save them externally if you reset your phone.
Use Rocket Player. Here's the link :

My answer from a similar question a couple weeks ago:
I had a lot of trouble looking for a music player for the phone that I liked, with good android wear support, and ability to browse/play by folder since that's how I organize my music. Eventually I found and love Rocket Player
I'll add to all these app recommendations with Rocket Player app on android. I put audiobooks into a folder called 'podcasts' and it remembers where I was up to. I can even stop and listen to other things and it'll still remember where I was up to when I go back.
Not for Phonograph, but In my app music Rocket Player, you can group albums by artist (default), folder, album artist and combinations of the three options.
Go to: Settings - My Library - Album Grouping to do so.
Rocket Player also has the option to display album artists if that helps you.
I actually found a music player that can keep playing even if "it loses focus". It's called Rocket Music Player. You can configure the Audio Focus to ignore the other audio apps while this player is playing. You can do so by setting the option under the Rocket Player Settings > Sound > Audio Focus. (source)
I'm personally a fan of Rocket Player and (though this is a bit of an odd one, and an acquired aesthetic taste) n7Player.

I have used Rocket Player Premium for many years and have never had a problem with it. It's by the same dev that made iSyncr (I've never used iSyncr, since I never used iTunes).
Okay. Before I buy it: I also came across another version. What's the difference between this version and this version? Other than one costing money.
Rocket Player, for local files. Have used it for years across multiple phones and it rocks. \m/ I use the premium version to support the dev but the free version is fully functional w/ no ads.
Try Rocket Player. I used to have a phone with a music library on microSD and it always worked fine. Make sure to go into settings and make sure the scanner knows to look on the card.
The music player app you downloaded probably is ad-supported, and ads for malware detectors are pretty common. I'd be more worried about the malware detector than the music player app, myself, though as long as you have not enabled untrusted sources and are only downloading from the play store you are probable fine.
I'd delete both the music player app and the malware detector, and then install trustworthy apps of that type that are not ad-supported. Try rocket player for your music app (no ads, at least not last I checked) and avira for malware detection. Note that some folks argue pretty convincingly that you do not need a malware detector/antivirus at all.
Edit: Sorry, just noticed that you said music downloader, not music player. I don't have a suggestion there, but I am sure Google can help find a reputable one.
Yep, that's the only reason why I'm not using it. Have you tried Rocket Player? It supports sorting by album artist and I've had no problems so far.
I use Rocket Player which serves me well but I'm not sure about your situation.
Why do you take the SD card out? Are you unable to connect your phone to your computer via USB?
Also, what program do you use to listen to your playlists on your computer?
As far as making the music stop when you close the app, that is the app maker's choice. For example, Spotify shuts off music when it is killed, but Google Play Music does not.
And I haven't seen a music app that shows the volume, but it should be easily controlled with the volume buttons when the music is playing. And pretty much all music apps open a notification that allows for play/pause and skipping tracks from the notification lists. Though you still have to pull down from the top to see notifications.
Are you using the stock music player? Might want to look into other apps if so. I rarely play local music, but years ago used Rockey Player. Media Monkey has an Android app too, which is a popular Windows music player for computers as well.
Edit: Media Control
A couple more are Rocket player
And MD player
As a long time iPhone user, I've amassed a lot of media on iTunes. For the most seamless method to transfer music and video, I use iSyncr.
For music playback, their own Rocket Player is a formidable music player. Even has Android Auto support. Of course, Google Play Music and Samsung Music are good players, too.
As long as the movies don't have DRM, any good media player like VLC for Android or MX Player (my favorite) should be able to play it.
iSyncr updates play and skip counts, and also offers syncing back into iTunes, so it's plenty integrated.
Rocket Player can do this for you. I've hardly used it myself, but it's relative popular on this subreddit. [link]
hey /u/Aiken_Drumn, that's correct. This is the process I use:
On your Android phone, grab these two apps:
a. Rocket Music player
Install the iSyncr desktop app on your PC or Mac.
On your computer, ensure iTunes and iSyncr are running.
On your Android device:
a. Ensure that it has USB data sharing on.
b. The device is unlocked.
c. The screen is on.
d. iSyncr and Rocket Player are active.
Connect the Android to the computer.
In the system tray, there will be an icon (looks like iS). Right click on it.
Select where you would like to store your music/playlists; either internal storage or the SD card.
A window will appear which will say "initializing..." as it reads your iTunes. Depending on how large your iTunes library is, this may take a while.
Once it has finished initilising, you can pick which playlists you wish to sync with your Android device.
Once you have selected all the playlists, press sync. It will take a while, but your playlist will then sync with your Android device.
Open Rocket Player and play your music!
The great thing is that it will update your play counts as well. One issue to be aware of is to make sure before you connect your device, make sure the screen is ON.
Let me know if you have any issues.
I use Rocket Player for my local music. It has a casting option that you can enable in the settings.
Rocket Player allows you to browse your local music library on Android Auto.
Edit: here is your app
Rocket player (Paid one)
I'm using Rocket Player with the official last.fm app and have had 0 issues.
Rocket Player is great and it works as the default player for iSyncr (app used to sync iTunes to your Android device). Also supports Android Auto. Plays from folders as well as playlists. Free with small banner ads, upgrade to ad-free and more features with Premium Audio.
From JRT Studio (not affiliated with developer).
I second using Rocket Player.
Totally agreed. Been using it for years -- great app and a responsive dev.
Rocket Music Player. I like it.
Have you tried Rocket Music Player? [link]
Seconding Rocket Player, I don't disable the art myself but it's a great player.
I use Rocket Player

Give our Rocket Player application a try!
Yes! Our music player, Rocket Player, will use relative paths for its playlists.
I use Rocket Player. The pro version supports gapless playback.
Ja koristim Rocket Player. Imas Foldere i relativno cist layout itd.
Rocket Music Player also has this feature.
There is a "Pro" upgrade that is totally worth it.
Have you by any chance tried Rocket Player?
The Samsung apps require integration with TouchWiz iirc, thus incompatible with LineageOS. I'd recommend trying another music player like Rocket Player or Vanilla Music
We'd love for you to try our Rocket Player with material design elements, Android Auto support and more!
My Rocket Player app has a ton of shuffle options. If you go to the "Folders" tab and click shuffle, the music will be shuffled by the folders currently visible. My personal favorite is if you go to the "Albums" tab and click shuffle. It'll shuffle all your albums, just like an old school 100 disc changer! :-)
This functionality has been popular enough others are copying it. ;-)
