      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/early June. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

Crossfade where new song starts at normal volume

4 posts in this topic

A nice simple feature would be crossfading wherein the next song doesn't fade in.

The current song fades out while the next song starts in normal volume.

This one was requested a long time ago, I think it's known as "radio mode" of something similar.

Even more powerful a mode that I used to love on a very old music player on another platform is to watch the at the recorded in/out levels of the two songs. You define a cutoff dB level for outgoing tracks, and a cut-in level for new tracks. Then when the old track get below the defined volume at the end of a song, the new track will be started at its requested in-point (with a settable short overlap value if you want, bringing the new song up underneath the old one so the jump isn't too harsh). That compensates for the problem you get with tracks that either end or start suddenly, which just don't work with automatic fades.

This feature is absolutely needed, and would be enjoyed by a significant number of people. The current crossfade is so rudimentary it would almost be better without it. Fading in a new track almost always sounds terrible.

Hopefully the Poweramp team reads these Forums, because this is one post that they need to see.

Working in radio for almost 20-years,this feature is a MUST for users like me who want to use what we call a "segue" instead of the standard crossfade.  The only other app that uses the seque method is Neutron...but the rest of that app is so complicated I gave up on trying to figure it out.

Apparently the Poweramp team isn't too concerned with their PAID users' requests, since we've been asking for this feature for years.  Come on guys, it can't be that complicated to implement:  While song #1 is fading out, song #2 starts at a time set by the user (usually 2-4 seconds before song #1 fades out completely) at 100% full volume.  It sounds totally awesome, and I (along with many others, apparently) would like to see it added to Poweramp...yesterday.

I've been using Poweramp for years...and I paid for it almost as soon as I downloaded and started using it.  I know thousands of PAID users use the app, so it's not like the developers can't afford to add the feature.  If you want to know exactly how you set up the seque feature, download the trial version of Neutron.  All features work for 14 days, so it would give you time to autopsy the app and find out how to implement the feature.  You won't regret it.

PLEASE -- I'm begging the Poweramp Gods to add the "segue" feature to an already awesome app...and I assure you, you would rule the market.

Thanks in advance...and I hope you don't disappoint me.
