Soundwaves is a client for the Subsonic music server.

Soundwaves focuses on simplicity, making it the ideal client to connect your iPad or iPhone to your home theater setup.

Optionally setting a suitable max bit rate, enables Soundwaves to work well even over a bandwidth limited connection (e.g. a mobile connection). It will also play nicely with your car radio, connected via USB, Bluetooth or CarPlay.

In addition to audio formats natively supported by iOS (e.g. mp3, AAC), Soundwaves can also play FLAC, Opus and Ogg Vorbis content.

Soundwaves can also play movies from your Subsonic server, as long as they are in a supported format (.mov, .mp4, .mpv, .3gp) or a proper transcoding has been configured on the server.

Soundwaves works with other media servers which implement the same Subsonic API's, such as Madsonic, Airsonic, Supysonic, LMS or Ampache.

Note about privacy: tracking only happens when using the free, ad-supported version. Removing ads via the in-app purchase also stops tracking and data collection.

some flac have no sound

Some flac can play, some not. And all flac above 3000kbps failed to play

Developer Response ,

You can disable transcoding in Subsonic, if you don’t need it. In that case, Soundwaves will receive flac data as-is

Flawless AirSonic Client

This app is incredible and simple … perfectly integrates with subsonic/airsonic instances, searching is reliable and fast, playlists work flawlessly, and the system caching works very well while on spotty LTE / mobile connections. Very good!

Best free Subsonic client for iOS

Fast, simple music client for Subsonic servers. Does what it needs to and nothing more.

Feels a little old-fashioned as far as media players go. I would have preferred the ability to play directly from the library browser rather than having to add songs to a temporary playlist first (reminds me of the foobar & Winamp days.)

Could also use some visual polish to really feel at home on iOS, but for a free app it's hard to complain. Very happy this exists.
