    Dynamic Color with Album Art
    Minor stuff here but worth noting. Dynamic color on mobile was a big hit so we wanted Hydra desktop to have the same feature.

    You can now enable dynamic color for Hydra desktop.
    Player Setup > Hydra > Match color (Desktop)

    Note: If you are going to use this feature, make sure you design your album are so that it doesn't interfere with your buy now text color.

    Other Notes

    - Increased playback speed on desktop by 5%
    - Incresed height of spectrum animation
    - Spectrum now shows more of the main color
    - General code cleanup

    These are minor updates but we are working on more important impactful features.
    Enjoy.

    Guys, you call this minor but I have OCD and (heart) having dynamic color! Playback on desktop is a tad faster. Is' @Jarvis' part of this development, looks like things have ramped up since he came back.

    Dope as fuck. So colors change based on album art? Makes us be creative with album art, how does the color on the album art effect the color, which part of the album art?

    '@Tyson' Jarvis has been working on updates like a madman, we just feed him pizza
    '
    @killtraxxx' The code draws color from the center of the album art. If you want pinpoint color you can use black and white with a splash of color somewhere in the center, the best bet is to experiment.

    The same to me looks cool and I use white template... However, some of the center covers are generating white patterns

    Nothing to fix guys, you just have to be creative with your album art.

    Think you missed this guys from the original post. This feature is for those that want to sit down and don't mind spending a few hours modding album art to make your player look (fire)

    For everyone that wants to use this feature, you will indeed have to play with your album art. For example, if you have white buy text color do not use album art with any white in the center.

    Experiment.

    For someone that has hundreds of beats, this feature probably isn't logical.

    It's not a big deal for me. I have around 200 beats and have maybe 20 album art pics I need to replace. It takes me 2 minutes to replace each one, no big deal.

    What I do is make the album art black and white then give a splash of color in the center.

    Done and done.

    Also, changing the album art is the best way and will look better, that being said, I'll see if we can create an "ignore white" and "ignore black" feature but it's unlikely this can be done without rewriting the whole thing. I'll know within the next couple days. Doesn't hurt to try.

    Best bet to future proof is change album art 100%
