Totalamp Main Window

Main windows allows you to perform basic operations and access core Totalamp features.

User Interface

Totalamp main window and UI elements


Playback Buttons

When you click on next track, always the next track in tree starts to play (filtering and sorting has no impact on this, it might happen that next track will not be visible). Same playlist may be opened in two tabs in music commander and in a separate playlist window, and all of them might have different settings (position, expanded or collapsed folders, filter, sorting).

When shuffle is ON, previous and next folder buttons do not have any effect.

Shuffle Modes

You can turn shuffling ON and OFF by shuffle button. Small light on the button indicates the mode. When you turn it OFF, next track is normally selected and played. When shuffle is ON, whole playlist is shuffled. Once the whole sequence is played, whole playlist is shuffled again. This is done also when some track is added or deleted.

Repeat Modes

There are three repeat modes:

Next folder button functionality example
