General

While Spotify is working on iOS and on Android OS9 and OS10, it is currently not working properly on Android OS11 and OS12 due to changes in the Android operating system. We are working on a fix and expect it to be available very soon. We are aiming for January 2022.

Luminant Music accepts audio files in the following formats: MP3, WAV, OGG, and AIFF.

Definitely! With an active subscription, you may use Luminant Music for any personal or commercial purpose.

Luminant Music was built to support single songs that are less than 15 minutes each in length. If you have the Grateful Dead’s 1978 Winterland Ballroom show as a single WAV file, it’s probably not going to work; that show was six hours long. We are actively working to implement support for long tracks in a future release. In the meantime, many variables determine what will and won’t work. If your device has enough memory, you can probably play a one-hour track. Save your playlist before you try to add extra-long tracks, just in case, and keep an eye out for future releases to fix the problem entirely.

Luminant Music 3.x and later have native support for Spotify and over 80,000 Internet Radio stations through Shoutcast. We are working on support for additional services.

Luminant Music is FREE with in-app purchases. For a while it was a subscription product but those days are over.

If you are an active subscriber, your subscription will be honored until it expires. Your subscription will not renew automatically. You may then purchase whatever in-app purchases you like. One-time purchases are far more affordable than the subscription model.
