Starling provides professional 31-band equalizer which is fully compliant with ISO 266:1997 for best sound adjusting. 19 presets included for simple use cases. Important fact is, Starling stays energy efficient all the time.

It Has Potential
I have to say I really like this app. The screen has a nice display. It rotates to landscape mode and still looks great. Unfortunately there is no way to turn off the iPhone sleep mode while playing music it just goes black. That is a deal killer. In fact not much you can do in the settings except change the display from light to dark. Also being able to load playlists off of the music app would be a big plus. But it has potential if they fix these flaws. The audio spectrum display is very cool. But left and right output in mono. Not a deal killer but it would be great if it was true stereo. Hopefully these issues can be improved.
Voice memo to playlist! add Repeat play mode?
Allow me to export voice memo to the app and listen in background!!! That's all I'm asking for now! Dunno anything about the equalizer but want to learn. The interface is simple and easy to figure out. Thank you!! Hope there is a repeat play mode in the next version
Good sound Quality but
can't shuffle all songs in itune music tab.
play songs from one album and then it stopped.
