Customize your Music Universe
Want to improve your listening experience, and make your Music Universe even more special?
With Epicentric you can!
“It’s your music, and you can do what you want with it!”
Edit The Playback
With Epicentric, you can edit the settings on your Epikeys and on your Links to change the playback of your music tracks, without modifying or duplicating the original files, saving space on your device.
One or more tracks in the playlist will play softer or louder compared to the others.
One or more tracks in the playlist will perform with your customized EQ.
You can crop one or more tracks in a playlist as you wish, so that only certain parts will play.
In the near future, we’ll be expanding the range of tools at your disposal to increase your options, allowing you to take your listening experience to the next level!
In Epicentric, you have two different possibilities to change the playback of your Music files:
1. Adjust the tracks in your catalog directly.
2. Use Epicentric’s technology to modify your Links, Epikeys and Maps.
Editing the tracks in your Catalog
Use the Music Settings
Edit a track in your catalog
You can adjust the playback of a single track of your catalog by editing the parameters available in the Music Settings.
One of the most useful features available in the Music settings is the “Gain”.
For example, if a track in your catalog plays softer than the others, you can increase its gain to bring it up to the same volume as rest of the music in your selections, collections, or playlists.
Play a track from your catalog
When you activate a song directly from your catalog, it will play with the parameters you’ve chosen in the Music Settings.
Editing with Epicentric Technology
Using Epicentric Technology lets you affect your Links , your Epikeys and your Maps .
Editing at these deeper “levels” is invaluable in customizing your Music Universe.
The limits of Music Settings
All songs in your catalog will play according to how you set the parameters in “Music Settings”.
When to use Epicentric Technology
On the other hand, if you want a track played in a specific way only when it’s linked to a certain Epikey, then you can use Epicentric’s technology to do just that, by editing Epikeys and Links.
For example, if the track “Nozze di Figaro” by Mozart brings up the emotion of joy in you in its first 50 seconds, and you want to play only that part when you activate the Epikey “Joy”, you can edit the Link that connects the track to its Epikey by using the Audio-Crop feature and selecting that specific section.
– When you activate either the Epikey “Joy” or just the track’s link, only the selected part will be played.
– However, when you activate the same track from your catalog, or from other Links or Epikeys (other than “Joy”), the track will be reproduced in its entirety.
The Advantages of Editing with Epicentric’s technology
One of Epicentric’s most useful innovations gives you the ability to play every track in your catalog in an infinite number of ways, based on how you edit the Epikey to which they’re connected, all without modifying or duplicating your files, saving storage space on your devices!
Use the Links settings
Edit a Link
To change the playback of any track, edit their Links by adjusting the parameters available in the “Link Settings”.
One of the most useful features available in the Link Settings is the Audio-crop which allows you to select and play only a specific part of a track.
For example, if a track in your catalog has one part that makes you feel light-hearted, and another part that gives you the blues, you can use Epicentric’s technology as follows:
1- Create the Epikey “Light-hearted”
2- Create a Link to connect the track to the Epikey “Light-hearted”
3- Use the Audio-Crop function to select only the part of the track which gives you that feeling.
You can then do the same with the wistful part of the track:
1- Create the Epikey “Feeling blue”
2- Create a Link to connect the track to the Epikey “Feeling blue”
3- Use the Audio-Crop function to select only that part.
Activate a Link
When you activate a single Link, or activate an entire Epikey thus generating a playlist with all its Links, the tracks connected to the Epikey are played with the parameters you’ve chosen in the Link settings.
In the Audio-Crop example, therefore:
When you either activate the entire Epikey “Light-hearted” or just the Link connected to the track, only the part that makes you feel light-hearted will play.
By the same token, when you activate the Epikey “Feeling blue” or just the Link, only the part that helps you feel wistful will play.
Use the Epikey settings
Edit an Epikey
In addition to affecting a single link, you can adjust an entire Epikey by editing the parameters available in the “Epikey Settings”.
When you modify an Epikey, the effect of your editing spreads throughout all its Links.
In fact, one of the most useful features available in the Epikey Settings is the EQ.
For example, if you’ve created a Map with all your discography divided by genre, and you want to improve your listening experience of the tracks connected to the Epikey “Funk”, you can use Epicentric’s technology to create a dedicated equalization as follows:
1- Enter the “Epikey Settings” of the Epikey “Funk”
2- Set the EQ that best suits that genre of music.
Activate an Epikey
When you activate an Epikey generating a playlist, all the tracks connected to it are played according to the parameters you’ve chosen in the Epikey Settings, as well as those you might have modified in the Link settings of each single Link.
Taking the above example, all the tracks of the Epikey “Funk” will be played back with the EQ you’ve set according to what you think is best for that kind of music.
Use the Map settings
Edit a Map
When you edit a root Epikey, it affects all its underlying Epikeys.
This is most useful for editing an entire map, or just certain branches/parts of it.
Activate a Map
When you activate a Map and generate a playlist, the connected tracks are played according to the parameters you’ve chosen in each Epikey, as well as any you might have set in the settings of each single Link.
The 2 criteria of Multi-Level Editing
1- The propagation effect
When you edit on a “General” level, the effect of editing reaches all underlying levels.
This allows you to edit groups of tracks instead of single tracks.
Thanks to this “rule”:
If you edit a track in your catalog, it will be played with those parameters in any Playlist generated by any Epikey to which it’s connected.
If you edit an Epikey, all its Links, i.e. all the tracks connected to it, will be played according to the parameters you’ve chosen.
If you edit a Map, all the Links of the underlying Epikeys, and therefore all the tracks connected to them, will be played according to those parameters.
2- The specific level of editing prevails over the more general level
This rule allows you to always customize your listening experience in detail.
The parameters that you set at the Epikey level override those you set in the tracks of your catalog.
The parameters you set on the sub-Epikey level override those of the root Epikey (or Map)
The parameters that you set on a single Link override those of its Epikey.
In other words:
The Epikey settings prevail over the Music Settings.
The settings of an Epikey prevail over those of its root Epikey and/or the Map it belongs to.
The Link Settings prevail over the settings of its Epikey.
Customize Your Maps
You can use the following features to customize your Maps:
– Assign a color to the name of every Epikey and Map
– Assign a color to the contours and lines of every Epikeys and Map
– Assign an image to each Epikey and Map
When you change the graphics parameters in a Map, or in any Epikey from which other Epikeys originate, the underlying Epikeys acquire them too, unless you give them individual settings.
