      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      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 is hoped this will be ready for final beta-testing by the end of the May. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Hello; I have connected my Samsung S6 to my FiiO Q1 through USB. Alpha 703 detects the FiiO DAC (Java Based and Hi-Res) but no sound is heard on Headphones. I have Neutron player and everything works fine with it (When the DAC is powered on, Neutron automatically starts playing.) Are there some settings I am missing on Android or on Poweramp? Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi, i have simple problem = .cue files are not detected on usb otg pendrive. I have selected the folder in Poweramp, but nothing happens. If i move the file into internal memory, everything is ok. Could you look into the issue? Thanks. Device - Xiaomi Mi4 (Cancro), root, Xiaomi.eu MIUI 8.3 dev, Android 6.0.1.
  3. Hello everyone. Today I bought a SanDisk Ultra Dual USB-OTG Drive 3.0 64GB (exFAT), and used iSyncr to sync my iTunes 30GB (more than 6,300 tracks) music library onto it. Next, I plugged it inside my unrooted Nexus 5 with the latest Android updates, and started searching for a music player that could read the playlists from there. The first choice was Rocket Player - which is iSyncr's suggested player. It can read the music ranking (stars) and all other details that I created using iTunes if the files are synced onto the internal hard drive, but of course it can't read from a USB-OTG. I started trying random music players, and they all failed. Even the latest version of Poweramp couldn't do it. After searching the web for people with a similar problem, I found out that the latest alpha build of Poweramp should be able to do it! I installed Poweramp-alpha-build-703-uni.apk 703/704 build, and when I looked into which folders to tell it to read, an option popped up to "grant permission" for Poweramp to read my USB! After a full scan, the music files play perfectly (although I need to rescan the drive everytime I remove and reinsert it)! But for some reason it can't read the playlists. It SEES the playlists, but all of them have tags underneath that says: "not loaded yet". When I open one of them, it's empty - with 0 tracks in it. So I went on and tried to sync a playlist onto my Nexus 5 internal hard drive - and this time Poweramp could read and play the playlists just fine! At first I thought it was related to the .plb file extension that iSyncr uses to update its playlists, but the problem occurs only when Poweramp tries to read the playlists from an OTG-USB. I looked through the .m3u files on my PC using Notepad, and everything looks fine. Winamp plays them from the USB while it's connected to my PC with no problem. tl;dr Poweramp sees playlists created by iSyncr as empty - but only on the USB-OTG. If the playlists are on the Nexus 5 internal hard drive it reads them fine. In the meantime, I play my music based on Genres using that Poweramp alpha version, but of course I want to play my playlists (and hopefully see all other iTunes information that iSyncr creates, like track rankings). Did someone run into such a problem? Do you have any solution or something that I could try and didn't? Thank you. EDIT: OK! I did the following and found a temporary solution: I left all the synced files on the USB, but transferred the .m3u files only onto the internal hard drive of the Nexus 5, to another folder named syncr. I told Poweramp to grab files from both syncr folders, in the USB and on the Nexus 5, and for some reason now it works! It uses the the .m3u files on the internal hard drive to find the music files on the USB, which shouldn't work at all, but for some reason it does. So basically I now do the following everytime I want to sync my iTunes: 1. Sync the USB with iSyncr. 2. Copy the .m3u files from the USB syncr folder onto a hard drive syncr folder on my mobile. 3. Tell Poweramp to scan music in both folders. I still need to rescan the folders every time I insert the USB though. I hope this procedure will get easier in the future.
  4. With the new builds ability to output to a USB DAC. It would be really cool to be able to play local and offline Tidal music from within PA and then send the digital output to the DAC. "Roon" does this very well for desktop, but I suspect the Tidal music is streamed as the offline files are probably encrypted, so may not be possible. Perhaps you could release another App which is just the USB DAC driver, I know lot's of audiophile users on Android that are forced to use Usb Audio Pro Player as one of the only stable ways of outputting to USB DAC. Whilst streaming is OK for Spotify, Google Music etc at lower bit rates, Hi-Fi Tidal is not really practical being 16/44 FLAC - so a stable USB > DAC driver would make all music apps accessible, this could be sold as an add on to PA. Just some ideas... Just downloaded the latest Alpha Build and will see how it goes with my Audioquest Dragonfly Red DAC and Galaxy S6!
  5. I read: USB OTG storage access @ Android 6.0 via Storage Access Framework But it won't show up anywhere . I tried scanning for the folder but it won't even show up as an option to select. Anyone haev a solution? I have a nexus 5x which doesn't have sd card support so im short on space. One solution was to format the card as ntfs and use ntfs mounter to use it with Poweramp. But it's really annoying that I have to o in and rerun the app everytime to get Poweramp to recognize and rescan the library.Thank you in advance for any help!
  6. Play from external drive

    I just down loaded trial version and trying to decide whether to buy. Have LOTS of lossless music on a portable hard drive that I'd like to play via my Android tablet. Poweramp doesn't seem to see the USB drive. Does this change when I buy? Or is there something else I need to do to do this? Works fine for music copied to tablet.y
