Advanced searching / library management

I'd really like to see some advanced searching.

For example starting with a BPM range and using that set for the next search which could be the key of the song. All this is unrelated to genre or playlist in this case.

Another option would be to search on multiple selectable fields at the same time. I'd also love to manually disable columns and be able to sort them by clicking on them.

The way Mixvibes handles searching is pretty good too. You might want to take a look at their iPad app.

So the new version has better filtering options. One question though: it would be far more useful if searching would include key matching instead of simply using the exact same key. And I hope this won't take another 6 years since we're now on the subscription model and all that...

More room for improvement: the filters are simply stacked (AND). This is fine unless you're using the same type of criteria. In that case using 'OR' would be preferred.

E.g. I want to search for key 'Bm' and 'Em'. Right now the result set would be non-existent as there are no songs with both keys. Well, doh.

Activating two identical filter-types should be inclusive or deactivate the other condition as it makes no sense in its current implementation.

Hi guys I want to add some improvements that I really think it has to come very soon in order to have a pro app. 
1/ The recent issues with Catalina and iTunes and the uprising iPadOS makes totally clear that IPad users need to work as pro users just inside the iPad without having to open the laptop for playlist management, tagging, etc. That means we need to have the option to manage our songs, rename them, tag them etc. inside the app otherwise the tag filter is to me pretty useless and we can’t forget when many years ago we were able to do smart playlists with comments in iTunes and use Traktor in a laptop like a charm.

2/ Also whats up with sync between devices? As my playlists in iPad doesn’t sync with my iPhone I am trying to edit playlists on Spotify but guess what those guys are in the jurassic era in terms of playlist editing, unless of course you open your laptop and then you can do the magic of changing playlists order, etc.

Thanks for a positive reply if posible, peace&love guys.
