      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.

Hello. Player is excellent! Please add the repeat function of the segment AB

I've often wondered what people use A-B Repeat for in the real world, but a lot of people do seem to want it. I've had it on CD players, etc since they were invented in the 80s, but not once in my life have I actually used it! I just can't see why I'd want to repeat-play a short portion of a track in casual everyday use. Sure for editing purposes, but not on a regular player.

 

 

Max: if you were to implement this, it might fit in well with the revised playback options that we were discussing a year ago? Just add an extra seventh option, thus:

 

Play One Song
Play Current List

Play All Lists

Repeat Current Song
Repeat Current List
Repeat All Lists
Repeat A-B

If the user selects the Repeat A-B option, that would define the current playback position as the 'in' point, and the option wording would change to Repeat A-B (set endpoint). When the endpoint has similarly been selected, the track would repeat continuosly between A and B until the user selects a different option. Long-press on Pause button (i.e. Stop) could revert to the previously selected playback mode.

 

Thoughts?

I want A-B repeat so badly :) ....It is especially good for Instrumental and Classical music where segments of the track sound the finest but also good for audio Podcasts too.

 

I hope it can get implemented soon. Btw, this is not the request forum

Thank you! We'll be waiting) I just do not know where this question could ask, why post it here.

In addition to playing music like most users (I guess), I use my music players (recorders) for 3 addtional purposes:

1- Learning languages (English, French, Spanish, Italian).

2- Listen to a same section in order to find/write out notes and chords in songs (mp3, flac, wma), in order to play piano accompaniment later time.

3- As part of languages learning, I need to listen and repeat the same section (A-B segment) of reading/singing voice (vocal) to improve (and perfect) the pronounciation.

 

As such the A-B repeat function is very important.

Currently I still have to use the old and trustworthy Sony minidisc player or the VLC program in my Windows laptopn to accomplis the above tasks.

Definitely this feature will attract many Android owners. It will give Poweramp a definite advantage over its competitors.

 

Not directly related to the A-B repeat but relate to people who listen to non-music recording: an option to select and play the continuation of the previously played item (only the last or select among a limited number of bookmarks).

 

I often use Poweramp to listen to audio books when travel by bus, of course it is not possible to finish the whole book in one bus ride. In the next restart of the Android, it is very difficult and time consuming to browse and fast forward to the last played chapter!

2- Repeatly listen to a few measures in a instrumental/vocal songs in order to find/write out notes and chords in songs (mp3, flac, wma). This helps me playing piano accompaniment (and may be sing) for these songs at later time.

As mentioned in the title. Please add this function. I haven't seen a single player which can do this. I think everyone would love this function and this would separate this player from all others.

It would be awesome to repeat specific parts of the song and listen to it over and over again. I personally need this function so I can easily memorise some important parts of my recorded lectures. (I am a student)

So what do you guys think?

I think it would be great to have the ability to mark/bookmark where you are in a certain mp3 so that you can go back there in the future. I listen to a bunch of podcasts and audiobooks, many have multiple mp3s. I want to mark where I am in one mp3 file and then go to another audiobook, listen to it, mark where I am, then go back to where I was in the previous audiobook. Anyone want this functionality as well? It'd be a huge help. (Also, it would have to remember to play all of the subsequent mp3s of that specific audiobook associated with the bookmark)

Agreed, I would find it very useful too. However this has been asked for since about the first release of the app I think, but no signs of it being added yet.

Scanning the feature requests, I found this request had been submitted more than once.

One among the replies seems to come from a Poweramp's staff.

 

It's understandable for Poweramp to give priority to more flashy and easier to implement features.

I like the Poweramp and use it mainly with my Android.

For this A-B feature, if desperate needed, I use the "VLC media player" on Windows XP or my Sony minidisc player.

 

In not too distant future, I hope some Poweramp's designers find the solution and are allowed to implement it.

I Want It Too!

 

People who want this feature, instead of just reading this request, you should post a reply at least with a few word "I WANT IT TOO".

With your response/reply/comment/feadback, Poweramp may be aware of your need.

This feature was requested 7 years ago and we still don't have it... I WANT IT TOO

Also it would be nice if there'd be an option for A-B repeat via Loop Tags in the song file tags. This would be great for looping game music.

This way I could loop my Final Fantasy 14 songs via the tags provided by the game itself.
