      Poweramp v3 Project Update   03/22/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code. It's not quite ready for open testing yet, and although he would like to be able to get it out by the end of the March it may just drop over into April. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Tracks jumbled order

    I have a couple of folder in which the tracks appear correctly ordered in Windows Explorer, XYExplorer and Solid Explorer on Android. Yet in Power amp their order is jumbled. I've tried many things to stop it. The tracks have no tags. Shuffle is off. (
  2. Shuffle songs and lists

    Hi. I need a bit of help with the shuffle options. I'm trying to do something and I don't know how to do it, or even if it's possible. I'll explain my situation and what I need to do. I have a couple thousands songs, divided into folders according to the genre of the music. Some genres have substantially more songs than other genres, but when I play music, I want all genres to sound as balanced as possible. For example, the rock folder contains well over 500 songs, while the jazz folder contains only 60+ songs. This means that with "Shuffle all songs" option, Poweramp will play roughly 8 rock songs for each jazz song played, and that's not what I want. I played around with the various Shuffle options, but all of them do the same. I want to know if there's a way to achieve the following playing criteria. 1) Shuffle all songs inside each folder 2) Start playing music 3) Shuffle all folders 4) Select the next folder (shuffled in step 3) and play the next song from that folder (shuffle in step 1) 5) Repeat step 4 until one song from each folder has been played 6) Repeat steps 3 to 5 I'd be very grateful if someone could tell me how to do that or, at least, something as close as possible to that. Thank you very much in advance.
  3. Sound volume fluctuation from low to normal at random, volume just dips down for a 1-3 seconds and goes back, it repeats in 1-5 seconds again. It have something to do with Direct Volume Control, because when i disable it everything becomes normal again and never bugs out while it off. Switching off and on every other option in audio settings or equaliser/effects doesn't help. It's very annoying, please do something with it.

  4. Randomized list sorting

    Hey, I would like to suggest new option in "List Options" - "By random order". I know there is shuffle feature, but this is not the same - when I search for some album tofitinto my mood I usually browse through Albums view and am bored tosee them everytime in the same order It makes me to overlooksome albums constantly. Instead I like figuratively dive into my collection and by surprised whatwill pop out at the beginning of the list ;-) Anybody interested too? Thanks Aleš
  5. Playing just a playlist

    I may not be understanding how playlists are supposed to work in Poweramp. My assumption is that if you start playing a song within a playlist (or select play when long-pressing a playlist) it should just play through the playlist. This isnt the case, however. As sokn as the current song ends, it goes to a random song anywhere in my entire music list. It does this regardless of what shuffle mode is selected. Ive tried every which way and various settinga and cant figure it out. For background, these playlists were created as m3u files on my PC in Winamp and loaded with the mp3s onto my SD card for importing into Poweramp. Poweramp read the arrangement of music just fine and read the playlist files, creating accurate playlists within the program. Now they dont play right, though. Any help?
  6. Party Shuffle button/menu item

    The built-in android music player (at least in android 4.2) has a party shuffle menu item from most screens that instantly started playing all songs in the library and shuffled them in a random order every time, so it never played the same song first everytime.
  7. Song Cue Points

    So here is what came to my mind when I wanted to replay a 1hr long track from a certain point. That reminded me of the good old cue points I used to deal with back in time when Flash programming was fashionable The idea is to have - a UI control, which when pressed will register the time point (cue point) of currently playing track, and - makes another UI control available to seek to that exact time again when pressed - would be cool to be able to create a stack of cue points (not just one) Would be fairly easy to implement since this is purely UI enhancement that virtually requires 0 effort of new functions for the backend engine. What do you think Poweramp-ers?
  8. Random shuffle

    Hello, Here is my problem when using Poweramp (2.0.9 on Android 4.3 on a Sony Xperia Z1) : sometimes the currently playing list shuffles with no reason which is annoying. It especially happens when I decide to add a music to a PLAYLIST : for example the currently playing music is my 8th / 1143 and if I decide to add musics i liked in range 1/1143 to 7/1143 to a playlist like music 4/1143, then this musics switches with 8/1143 so I cannot add previous musics in the order they played. And sometimes it just shuffles really randomly, I mean with no action on Poweramp (maybe sometimes when using another app than Poweramp, but it should not change my playlist order in Poweramp I guess). As this ever been reported, is there a solution or fix ?
  9. Nexus 5 random audio glitches

    I've been using Poweramp for a while now. Previously I used it with my Galaxy S i9000, where everything worked fine. Recently I upgraded to a Nexus 5, and I'm experiencing audio glitches during playback. It happens randomly every 4 or so songs, it's difficult to describe the sound but something weird defiantly happens. It doesn't matter which song I play, and sometimes it can be 5-6 songs with no glitches at all. They aren't longer then half a second, but still ruining the listening experience. As far as I can tell it only happens with Poweramp. I've just tried listening to roughly 2 hours with Google Play Music, and no glitches so far. As I said, I'm using a Nexus 5, currently running newest version of SlimKat (weekly) with ElementalX Kernel. I've also tried it with Linaro and Code Blue kernel on SlimKat. Likewise with ParanoidAndroid and Linaro/ElementalX kernel. Can't remember anything about stock Android, since I rooted pretty quickly.
  10. infinite random on playlist

    I want to do what the subject says. When it gets done playing it stops with the message "List Finished". I kind of what it random to the point it plays some songs twice before playing others. Like random random.
  11. Hi, I have my player almost always on random to mix songs (duh) But when I have company, I want to avoid certain songs. Could you add a button or a feature to look up the next eg. 10 songs? So to know whats ahead. This list could be 5-15 songs. Basically this would be a dynamic playlist made by the app itself. Thanks for reading this!
  12. Shuffle Better

    I like a lot this music player. Definitely it's one of the best music players I could find in Playstore. But, I would definitely love to see a Smart Shuffle Playlist function. Used to play my music in an iOS app called Shuffle Better. It led me to shuffle all my music library, in a sort of On the go playlist, in random order. Then, I could add the song I wanted to play after the one I was listening. I could also lock the songs in the playlist by swiping my finger to the right (AND to the left it deleted the tracks I didn't want to listen) so I could RE-shuffle the playlist again but maintaning the songs I still wanted to hear. I'm new with Android, and hope that some player (maybe, I hope this one) includes this option. I hope you consider my suggestions and help me to solve my issue. Thanks and sorry from my bad english. I'm from Lima, Peru.
  13. Other version of shuffle

    Hello! I have a request for You guys. Here is my problem. When i have ~25gb of music (2000 songs or more), and for example 500 songs is one artist, and when i shuffle i have 5 songs this one artist in row. My idea is to make shuffle with algorithm, which will be counting chance to shuffle a song, and all the artists' songs will have proportion chance (less songs = more chance). If You cant get what i said, i will try to explain it better.
  14. Biased random play

    Hello, I'm searching for a biased random playlist. This means that I have a playlist with songs (which have been rated) and all songs get played, but the ones with 5 stars should be played 5 times more than those with 1 star. This allows to hear the songs I love a lot, but also to hear songs some times which I don't like that much. I couldn't find this in the feature list nor in the forum. I'd really like this feature and this is the only thing I'm missing in the wonderful Poweramp.
