Pretty good but misses the critical point!

Race Genki Style

This is almost exactly what you want. The major hang up is that instead of mapping play/pause next and reply/back to the corresponding keyboard functions, they are mapped to hot keys.
The defaults make Play=Cmd+Option+P, Next=Cmd+Option+->, and Back=Cmd+Option+<-
Any typical user of tabbed apps, such as Chrome or Terminal, will immediately realize that Next and Back are the defaults for switching tabs. It’s not difficult to change the hot keys (I just removed them), but it goes to show a laziness in developing usually reserved for free apps. There are plenty of other “browser wrapper” music apps, such as Musicality for Pandora, which use the hardware buttons, the way Apple intended.
Since this does not overload the physical buttons, the play/pause button on a default Mac will still bring up/start/pause iTunes, which feels sloppy.

Useful and great overall


I use SoundMate every day and really do enjoy it. It’s much better than having to deal with SoundCloud in a tab. I hope the original developer doesn’t give up on fixing small issues that could really make this an incredible product.

Good but still some bugs


I like nearly everything about this app, it really is a great solution overall for connecting to soundcloud outside of a browser. I do have a couple friction points though.

* It seems to get a little confused when dealing with dual displays - so does mac os though, so not too surprised. essentially, accessing it from the menu bar often requires re starting the app to get the window to appear

* integration with the touch bar isn't great. I've only been able to pause, no matter where I touch, or slide, just pause.

Other than that, awesome work
