    Hi,

    So I recently bought a LP-16 to use for a live band setting, some channels running backtracks while other channels are running click and reference tracks.

    And after going through it and testing everything, it seems as if there is no function to just skip to the next track in the playlist.
    I’ve read the user manual and checked online and it says the skip forward and backwards button only let you offset the start time in a song, and apparently does not actually let you skip a track forward and backwards.

    Am I just missing something? is it as simple as flipping an option somewhere that I couldn’t find?

    We rely heavily on being able to quickly skip to the next track or even back a few tracks in some cases, so this is actually quite an urgent matter.
    All the players and apps we’ve used before had this sort of workflow so we figured the LP-16 would be the same.

    So am I just being silly?

    Does and older firmware maybe support this option?

    Is this something that could come in a firmware update very soon? (Id suggest either putting in an option to turn this feature on and off, and even keeping the workflow the same, just make it so that one press skips the song and press and hold scrubs through it to set the start offset. (The same way almost all media players work))

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    With the current firmware release those keys can be used for head positioning.
    Jump to the next song you can use the up/down keys

    Does this mean an earlier firmware version will let me skip with the skip buttons?

    Also, the up and down buttons doesn’t skip the track, it only queues up a different track in the playlist.
    The only way I could get it to work as of yet was to pause the track, wait, then press stop again for the track to stop, then select the new track with the up/down buttons and then press play.

    This would be very difficult to get around in a live music setting where fluidity and quick actions are key. What was once just the press of a buttons is now 4 button presses and waiting in between the presses for the LP-16 to load.

    Where the playback ongoing there’s no way to skip the song. That was same in early firmware as well.
    To change the song the device must be in stop state.

    Well thats a disappointment.

    Skipping tracks is such a basic feature, will Cymatic Audio bother with adding this feature anytime soon?

    The main reason why we not allow to skip the song during the playback because the device designed for live performance. It can be dangerous if any button can interrupt the playback.

    “designed for live performance. ”

    There must be some design flaws then because thats literally what I want to use the LP-16 for and it doesnt offer me the one option I need to use it for live performance.

    And the (stop) button that literally sits next to the skip button, allows you to “interrupt” the playback of the song, so that can’t possibly be a good reason as to why a skip function cannot be implemented.

    The only dangerous part is if the user is pressing the wrong buttons.

    All I ask is that a simple skip forward and skip backwards function is implemented. It doesn’t even have to change the current setup of the LP-16, just an “instant-skip” function that can be enabled in the settings menu so the the users who want to use it the same way that we do, can have access to the feature.

    I feel like a skip function should automatically be a basic feature of any music player.

    I’ll add your email as “user feature request”
    The developer team will review your request before the next firmware release.

    Thank you for your input.
