  Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.

  The audio apparatus according to the embodiment of the present invention is configured as shown in FIG. The audio device 100 is mounted on a vehicle, for example.

  In FIG. 1, the audio device 100 includes a processing unit 10, an operation unit 11, a display unit 12, an output circuit 13, a storage unit 14, and a speaker 15. The memory | storage part 14 is comprised by HDD etc. and memorize | stores the music data showing a music. The processing unit 10 supplies the music data read from the storage unit 14 to the output circuit 13 in accordance with a predetermined reproduction operation on the operation unit 11. And the output circuit 13 supplies the audio signal corresponding to the said music data to the speaker 15, and the music based on the said music data is emitted from the speaker 15 provided in the vehicle interior. The display unit 12 displays various information generated by the processing in the processing unit 10. Although not shown, the audio apparatus 100 has a disk driver such as a CD or a DVD, and can output music based on music data stored on the CD from the speaker 15. Audio can be output from the speaker 15 and video can be output from the display unit 12 based on the audio / video data stored in the DVD.

  An external memory 20 such as a USB storage device or an SD memory card is connected to the processing unit 10 via a connector (not shown) provided in the audio device 100. For example, as shown in FIG. 2, the external memory 20 stores a plurality of pieces of music data managed hierarchically by each category of root, artist, and album. For example, the root folder includes an artist A folder and an artist B folder, the artist A folder includes an album A folder and an album B folder, and the artist B folder includes an album C folder and an album D folder. . Each album folder includes music data. As described above, the music data is finally stored in the external memory 20 while being managed in units of albums. The song data representing each song includes audio data representing the song sound of the song and related information (genre, album name, artist name, song name, performance time, related image, etc.) of the song. Generally, image data of a jacket image is included as related information of music data of the first (first) music included in the album folder.

  The processing unit 10 reads the music data stored in the external memory 20 in accordance with the processing procedure shown in FIGS.

  In FIG. 3A, when an operation related to the fetching of music data is performed from the external memory 20 in the operation unit 11, the processing unit 10 determines whether or not a fetching mode is designated (S11). In particular, when the capture mode is not designated (NO in S11), the processing unit 10 accesses the first artist folder (artist folder A in FIG. 2) in the external memory 20 (S12), and the first artist folder. 1 is accessed (album A in FIG. 2) (S13). Then, the processing unit 10 reads the music data of the first song in the first album folder, and takes in the music data to the storage unit 14 (S14). As a result, for example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, music data about the first music a of artist A's album A is taken into the storage unit 14.

  Next, the processing unit 10 determines whether or not there is a next album folder in the same artist folder (S15). If there is a next album folder (YES in S15), the processing unit 10 accesses the next album folder (album B in FIG. 2) (S16), reads the music data of the first song in the next album folder, The music data is taken into the storage unit 14 (S14). As a result, for example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, music data for the first music e of artist B's album B is taken into the storage unit 14.

  Similarly, when the music data of the first song of all the album folders included in the same artist folder is taken into the storage unit 14 (NO in S15), the processing unit 10 selects 1 of each album folder taken into the storage unit 14. Image data included as related information in the music data of the music is read, and an image is displayed on the display unit 12 based on the image data (S17). In general, the image data representing the jacket image of the album is included in the music data of the first song in the album folder, and therefore the jacket image of each album of a certain artist is displayed on the display unit 12. For example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, two jacket images of artist A album A and album B are displayed on the display unit 12 at this time.

  Further, the processing unit 10 determines whether or not there is a next artist folder (S18). If there is a next artist folder (YES in S18), the processing unit 10 accesses the next artist folder (artist B in FIG. 2) (S19). Then, the processing unit 10 reads out the music data of the first song of each album folder included in the next artist folder from the external memory 20 and loads it into the storage unit 14 according to the same procedure (S13 to S16) as described above. As a result, for example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, music data for the first music h of artist B's album C and music j for the first music j of artist B's album D are stored. The music data is taken into the storage unit 14.

  Thereafter, the processing unit 10 reads out image data included as related information in the first song data of each album folder of the next artist imported into the storage unit 14 according to the same procedure (S17) as described above, An image is displayed on the display unit 12 based on the image data. For example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, at this time, in addition to two jacket images of artist A's album A and album B, two albums C and album D of the next artist B A jacket image is displayed on the display unit 12.

  The processing unit 10 executes the above-described processing (S13 to S15) for all album folders of all artist folders. As a result, the music data of the first song of all the album folders of all the artist folders stored in the external memory 20 is taken into the storage unit 14. For example, as shown in FIG. 4, the jacket images G-01, G-02, G-3, and G-04 of all the albums of all the artists are displayed side by side on the screen 12a of the display unit 12. In some cases, the related information of the first song data does not include the image data of the jacket image of the album to which the song belongs. In such a case, it is not necessary to display an image for the album, but an image (an image other than a jacket image) based on some image data included as related information in the music data of the first song, or a predetermined number An image (for example, a message image such as “loading”) can also be displayed.

  When the process for all artist folders is completed in the process described above (NO in S18), the processing unit 10 continues the process according to the procedure shown in FIG. 3B.

  In FIG. 3B, the processing unit 10 accesses the first artist folder (S20), and accesses the first album folder included in the first artist folder (S21). Then, the processing unit 10 reads the music data of all the remaining music pieces other than the first music piece already included in the first album folder from the external memory 20, and takes the music data into the storage unit 14 (S22). As a result, for example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, the music data for all the remaining music b, c, and d other than the first music a already taken in the album A of artist A is sequentially obtained. It is taken into the storage unit 14.

  Next, the processing unit 10 determines whether or not there is a next album folder in the same artist folder (S23). If there is a next album folder (YES in S23), the processing unit 10 accesses the next album folder (album B in FIG. 2) (S24), and other than the first song already taken in the next album folder. The music data of all remaining music is read from the external memory 20, and the music data is taken into the storage unit 14 (S22). As a result, for example, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, the music data for all the remaining music f and g other than the first music e already taken in the album B of artist A are sequentially stored. 14 is taken in.

  Similarly, when the music data of all the remaining songs other than the first song already taken in all album folders included in the same artist folder are taken into the storage unit 14 (NO in S23), the processing unit 10 It is determined whether there is an artist folder (S25). If there is a next artist folder (YES in S25), the processing unit 10 accesses the next artist folder (artist B in FIG. 2) (S26). Then, in accordance with the same procedure (S21 to 24) as described above, the processing unit 10 stores the music data of all the remaining music pieces other than the first music piece already taken in each album folder included in the next artist folder 20 Are read into the storage unit 14. As a result, when music data is managed as shown in FIG. 2, the music data for the remaining music i other than the first music h of artist B's album C and the first music of album B of artist B are stored. Music data for all remaining music pieces k and l other than j are taken into the storage unit 14.

  In this way, all music data in all album folders included in all artist folders stored in the external memory 20 are read from the external memory 20 and taken into the storage unit 14 of the in-vehicle audio device 100. . Then (NO in S25), the processing unit 10 extracts the image data of the jacket image from the music data of the other music for the album in which the image data of the jacket music is not included in the music data of the first music. Based on the image data, a jacket image is displayed on the display unit 12 in place of an already displayed image (for example, a “captured” message image) or newly (S27).

  Note that the music data captured in the storage unit 14 is also managed hierarchically according to the category of the route, artist, and album, as is the case with the music data in the external memory 20 (see FIG. 2).

  As described above, when the operation unit 11 performs an operation related to the acquisition of music data from the external memory 20, if the acquisition mode is specified (YES in S11 in FIG. 3A), the processing unit 10 performs the procedure shown in FIG. 3C. Continue processing according to.

  In FIG. 3C, when the album designation import mode is designated (YES in S28), the processing unit 10 sequentially reads all the music data included in the designated album folder from the external memory 20 and imports them into the storage unit 14 (S29). ). Thereafter, the processing unit 10 shifts to the processing shown in FIG. 3A, and the music data of the music data is transferred from the other album folders of the artist folder to which the album folder into which all the music data has been imported belongs (see FIGS. 3A and 3B). Perform a capture. In the process, the processing is skipped for album folders for which all music data has already been imported.

  When the artist specified capture mode is specified (NO in S28, YES in S30), the processes S31 to S36 corresponding to the processes S12 to S17 (see FIG. 3A) described above are executed and specified for the specified artist folder. The jacket images of all the albums of the selected artist are displayed on the display unit 12. Thereafter, the processes S37 to S40 corresponding to the above-described processes S21 to S24 (see FIG. 3B) are executed, and the songs for the remaining songs other than the first song already taken in all the album folders included in the designated artist folder Data is taken into the storage unit 14 from the external memory 20. Then, the processing unit 10 shifts to the processing shown in FIG. 3A, and performs the music data import from the first artist folder according to the above-described procedure (see FIGS. 3A and 3B). In the process, the processing is skipped for the album folder of the artist folder whose music data has already been imported.

  Further, when another capture mode is designated (NO in S28, NO in S30, S41), the processing unit 10 reads the music data from the external memory 20 in accordance with the procedure determined in the designated capture mode. The data is taken into the storage unit 14 (S42). And a process is performed sequentially from process S12 shown to FIG. 3A. In the process, the process of reading and importing music data that has already been captured is skipped.

  According to the on-vehicle audio apparatus 100 as described above, the jacket images of all the albums of all the artists are displayed on the display unit 12 at the time when the first song data of each album of each artist has been taken into the storage unit 14. Thus, the jacket image associated with each song belonging to each album can be displayed on the display unit 12 earlier (see FIG. 4). Thereby, the user roughly grasps all the albums stored in the external memory 10 by the jacket image displayed on the display unit 12 even in a state where the music data to be taken in from the external memory 10 remains. Will be able to. Then, in such a situation that the user can roughly grasp all the albums, the remaining music data is taken in.

  In addition, when an operation for specifying a jacket image (may be another image) displayed on the display unit 12 is performed (specification operation using a touch panel included in the operation unit 11 or the display unit 12), the processing unit 10 Recognizing that an album corresponding to the jacket image has been designated, the process forcibly shifts to processing in the album designation mode (YES in S11 in FIG. 3A, YES in S28 in FIG. 3B, S29). In the course of processing in the album designation mode, reading and import processing for music data that has already been captured is skipped. As a result, before the music data of all albums are fetched from the external memory 20, the music data can be preferentially fetched for the user's favorite album. As a result, even when music data is being fetched from the external memory 20, the user's favorite music can be reproduced based on the music data fetched preferentially.

  In the above-described in-vehicle audio apparatus 100, only the jacket image corresponding to each album is displayed as shown in FIG. 4, but based on other information included in the related information of the captured music data, As shown in FIG. 5, along with the jacket images G-01, G-02, G-03, and G-04, artist names (Art-01, Art-02, Art-03) corresponding to each jacket image (album). , Art-04), album name (Alb-01, Alb-02, Alb-03, Alb-04), and the first song name already acquired (tit10, tit20, tit30, til40). Good.

  In the above-described in-vehicle audio apparatus 100, when music data is fetched from the external memory 20, after the music data for all the albums of the artist is fetched, an image (jacket image) associated with each album of the artist is displayed. For example, the process of step S17 (image display process) is changed to the process of step S14 (the first piece of music data of the music data of the first song is displayed) (see FIG. 3A, S14, S15, S16, S17). By executing the program immediately after (capture), the image (jacket image) is displayed based on the image data included in the song data immediately after the first song data of each album is imported. You can also. In this way, an image (jacket image) associated with an album can be displayed more quickly without waiting for processing for another album.

  Also, in the process in the artist designation mode (see S30 in FIG. 3C), for example, by executing the process in step 36 (image display process) immediately after the process in step S33 (capturing the first piece of image data), As described above, an image (jacket image) associated with the album can be displayed earlier.

  As described above, the audio device according to the present invention displays images associated with each song belonging to each set as soon as possible when the song data is fetched from the external storage medium into the storage means in units of a set such as an album. The music data that has the effect of being able to be displayed on the recording unit and that reads the music data representing the music and its related information from an external storage medium such as a USB memory and fetches it into a storage means such as an HDD. It is useful as an audio device that can reproduce music based on the above.
