      Poweramp v3 - Next Beta Release Planned for April 2018   03/14/2018

      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, but it is currently hoped that the next Beta Test release will be ready for April 2018.    

What is tone and limit for?

I am not very audiophile.... I understand what the equalizer is for, but I don't fully understand tone and limiter. Tone boost bass and treble? Are EQ and tone been used together or shouldn't? And limiter?

Tone is a bass/treble boost control (so anti-clockwise to zero, rather than midway, is the 'flat' setting). You can use these along with the EQ, but personally I'd suggest one or the other.

Limiter stops high peak levels from oversaturating and thus distorting.
