      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 and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. If that works then great, I just didn't want to be languishing on a beta while everyone on the normal channel is rocking the latest build
  2. Regarding the new release A few questions if I could be so bold: If there is a beta/new alpha release will it be via the Play Store Poweramp beta channel? When v3.0 final is released (especially if a public beta is skipped) can you somehow release a notification to beta/alpha users so they know? Maybe release the final into the beta channel with a pop up advising people they can move over to the normal release. Can you add "cloud" support to the export/import settings system please? It will aid people moving from beta/alpha to the normal release. Maybe even a "auto backup" option as well, that would be handy because I usually always forget to export my settings when I wipe/replace my phone.
  3. Hello, I was wondering if it's possible, maybe within some sort of DSP function, to run some sort of fast audio compression on a track within Poweramp? I appreciate something like this eats the CPU and will most likely cause distortion that some users may pick up on. However, if there was a hard and fast compression with a user selectable "aggressiveness" setting that adjusts how much clipping it produces (i.e. how high it pushes the frequencies) it would probably work. Maybe a "pre-run" option could be available that could compute a better, less distortion prone or more customisable, settings table for each track, so each track could have it's own own frequency peaks pre-calculated so less calculations are required on the fly. Of course, this in turn would/could increase the volume for users which seems to be a permanent request. EDIT: Some default profiles should also probably be offered, ones that vary the amount of compression added or boost different areas.
  4. Hello, I am quite liking the new V3, but I have found an annoying problem. When I get in my car, enable bluetooth on my phone, it syncs with the car and I start Poweramp which then quite happily switches to my bluetooth graphic equaliser settings. However when I reverse that and put my wired headphones in it still remains on the bluetooth profile even though there is a specific profile for wired headphones. If I switch the profile manually it doesn't switch back to bluetooth and happily remains on the wired headphones setting until I connect to another bluetooth device.
  5. If you got it off Google Play just go here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.maxmpz.audioplayer.unlock&hl=en
  6. Or not, it appears to be looping with one track now. I think it must be a bug (that it loops or not) as it's not consitent in my use. Still the feature would be handy as looping the queue may be what some people want.
  7. Ok I take that back, it's looping with one track now! It's got to be a bug then because it's not consitent.
  8. This stems from this post: http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/3836-lock-screen-yes-or-not/ Basically if you, like me, play your entire music library but like to select a particular set of songs to play now and again but then return to the normal "all play" list the current looping system is annoying. Because I want my entire music to loop through indefinatly I use the "Repeat List" option, but as soon as you play a queue of songs that starts to loop the queue (the queue has to have more than one song for this to happen) and never exits the queue if your using the specific queue exit option outlined in the linked post. The only way to exit the queue is to have it on any other repeat option, but then it won't loop the main list once it's exited the queue. So I think something like another repeat mode like: Loop but advance queue's. It probably sounds more complicated than it is, but if you read the linked post and replicate it it's quite obvious.
  9. At the moment the queue option keeps the tracks in it even when they have finished playing. Could we have an alternative that you queue up the tracks, they play and as they finished they are removed out of the queue. Basically work like Winamps "Enqueue" feature does, but I like the idea of having a persistant queue as well.
  10. But it only loops if there is more than one track in the queue, which to mean suggests "feature" or bug. I might post this over in the bug/update section.
  11. Just to add to this: It seems if I queue up one track, it enters the queue, plays the track and exits with the repeat function on. More than one track and it loops the queue.
  12. Information: Poweramp Settings>Folders and Library>Advanced - Queue: Start Playing Queue: After current song Return To Queue: True Audo-Advance From Queue: True Ignore Shuffle: True On UI: Shuffle: All Repeat: Repeat List So bearing the above in mind I, by default, play all the songs in my music directory. When I fancy a particular song I press the scrub bar (which loads up the song list) and I choose the song I wish to play and, using the down arrow on the right, select "Enqueue". Now as set and I would expect it queue's the song up and plays it. The "Next track" display shows it as "Queue", so I know it's a queue. Now the problem occurs in that it constantly plays the queued song(s) until I manually tell it go back and play from the main song list (by select a song in that list). I believe the issue is that I use the "Repeat List" setting as default because I play all the music on my device, but as soon as Poweramp enters a queue it treats it as the list, so it's just looping around. If I set "Repeat" to "Advance List" it goes back to the previous list, but then it stops at the end of the "all music". If this is so, can I request a new "Repeat" option, one that repeats the "master list" but advances queues.
