It has many audio settings, but it breaks constantly and dosen't seem optimized for modern android. Sometimes when you disconnect with direct usb you can't reconnect and whenever I play music outside of the app after using it my phone blast me with sound at about 75% volume. It's UI also leaves a lot to be appreciated although it is functional. Surprisingly it has better sorting then USB Audio Player Pro which keeps me from leaving, as UAPP always fails to sort many of my playlist effectively

Used to be perfect. This app is no longer functional due to a Google update which made it unable to read my music that I've had on this device for years with this player. This is starting to seem a lot like the reason I don't use iOS anymore. It's my music and I control it not Google. I am extremely disgusted as this was the best music player I ever found, but I'm not a programmer and I'm not going to jump through all the hoops suggested on how to fix this.

It can easily be fixed by installing manually the Generic apk which is not limited by Android 11+, or you need to allow Neutron to access your storage via SAF. Everything is described in FAQ:

The sound is great. However, the scans are brutally slow, and you have to rescan every time you add something. It takes about 20 minutes to finish. The UI is extremely dated. Scrolling is very erratic. Sometimes just taking your finger off the screen will have things flying away, other times a good flick barely makes the list move. List speed dampening is set for 0.10. EDIT: They blame the slow scan on Android 11, but players like Poweramp have very fast scans, so I'm not buying that.

Use Generic version from web-site, SAF sources are slow because of Google's implementation. UI is by design.

What's new

* New:
- Tempo categories are long-pressable and provide +Queue, +Playlist for easier mixing;
- "All Tempo" category which does not group BPM for a more fine grained mixing;
- optional Tempo category in the top-panel;
- uninterrupted playback of SFTP sourced track when Internet connection changes.
* Updated FRC/AutoEQ database to the latest.
! Fixed:
- Global Search result cleared if source entry is refreshed;
- other crashes ...
