Digital music storage specialist Melco, has launched an iOS control point app for its music libaries. Melco music HD offers control and navigation when a Melco digital music library is connected to a USB DAC, says Daniel Raggett, Melco Business Development Manager.

In addition to full TIDAL and Qobuz streaming integration, music can also be accessed from UPnP servers on the network for streaming to Melco devices acting as a renderer.

The app also enables multiroom control for installations with more than one networked music source, plus the ability to create, play and manage playlists, play and manage playlists stored on the iPad.

The Melco music HD’s home screen lists available music sources for quick access to a wide range of music ready for instant playback. Album artwork, plus album, artist and track name, along with file type, sample rate, bit-depth and bandwidth information is displayed on the music playback screen, with full screen album artwork mode also available. The app also supports gapless PCM playback and gapless DSD with a suitable DAC.

Additional features include search by file format ( Flac, WAV, DSD) and then by sample rate. Melco libraries support PCM up to 32 bit and DSD up to a 11.3MHz.

The standard Melco Browse tree offers browse by Artist, Album, Genre, Decade, Composer or Conductor. Suitable for detailed or granular metadata, it should hold particular appeal for those users with Classical music collections. The company says this makes it ideal for music libraries that have been processed with SongKong for Melco which results in highly detailed metadata.

Melco music HD is compatible with the Melco N1, N10 and N100 digital music libraries and requires iOS version 9.1 and above.
