      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.

AUTO VOLUME/NORMALISE FEATURE

15 posts in this topic

I have noticed that while playing mp3 tracks, some are very loud, while others very quiet, it would be nice to have some kind of "normalise" or auto volume control to even out the volume between tracks.

PS: Very cool software, LOVE IT!!!

Auto limiter (for equalizer) is planned, but this is more for avoiding distortion.

Thanks!

I second Garry's request; I have purchased some MP3 and encoded other myself and the volume is not always the same level. Please consider auto-volume function in addition to the equalizer auto limiter: these are two different functions.

I think maxmpz is planning to implement ReplayGain in an update to the 2.0 version of Poweramp. I think I remember a thread on it or something.

It will definately be a great feature.

Right, but replay gain is a bit different as it's a precalculated gain value (not a dynamic compression or limiter).

This is not progressing; why is it so difficult to implement it? If when I listen to different soung the volume is suddlently much louder than the previous song, requiring manual intervention, for sure the software can do it for me! We have the technology :idea: , just use it! I am not asking Poweramp to make coffee for me ;) !

I'd also like to see this feature in future. Not just a limiter, but a auto gain feature for qieter songs.

I allready bought this app today, but this feature would be must have feature compared to all other android players.;)

Yes, absolutely. It should have a few options for compression strength.

Some examples:

* Listening to (especially classical) music on an airplane: here it's desirable to absolutely crush the dynamic range - it may ruin the expression of the music, but it's the only way to compete with the background noise.

* In a car via bluetooth: peak limiting is desirable.

* Audio book on handset speaker, (eg while getting dressed, moving around the room). The track should have fairly little dynamic range anyway; we want to boost it to as loud as possible (even accepting higher distortion than we would for music)

Yes please!

It would be hard to make this possible because some songs really aren't meant to be as loud as others and Poweramp would end up making either everything quite or really loud, plus wrecking the quality of the song because it's modifying the way it sounds... which might not really be a good thing. That's just how I see it though.

Of course you'd have to be able to turn the feature on and off as the situation dictates. I have some classical music and instrumental soundtracks that may sound wrong, but normally skip those in a random shuffle anyway. When I'm in the mood for instrumentals, I use a playlist. As a matter of fact, that reminds me about a feature request I've made but never heard one-way-or-the-other about. Is is possible to implement a feature by which the user could designate an album or song to NOT be included in the shuffle-all mode. I have a few polkas, holiday music, instrumentals that I rarely want to hear and they keep popping up when shuffling all.

I second that!!! Fabulous idea, would be a very useful feature!

Greetings!!

Just wanted to know if an update has been done re: AUTO VOLUME/NORMALISE FEATURE. Thanks

Not at present, no. However ReplayGain tags are supported, which if set correctly in the first place can do much the same thing (albeit not dynamically within one track).

It's 2017 and this featured not been implemented despite many users asking for it.  Has it been implemented implemented in a newer version?  I don't want to disabled DMV for lower quality.

Thanks!
