      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.

mulitple tags
Allow tags to contain multiple entries

4 posts in this topic

This has probably been requested before, but it would be nice if Poweramp could properly read tags with multiple entries. For example, the problem I'm having is with genre tagging. I use MusicBee to organise the music on my PC and it lets me put say "Blues Rock; Punk Blues; Alternative Rock; Garage Rock Revival; Garage Punk; Indie Rock; Folk" for a genre tag, then the track is listed under each individual genre eg. "Blues Rock". The semi-colon acts as a separator. Problem is when I sync to Poweramp I end up with "Blues Rock; Punk Blues; Alternative Rock; Garage Rock Revival; Garage Punk; Indie Rock; Folk" as it's own distinct genre. So artist too artist if the genres are not exactly the same .... well I now have about 112 genres, mostly overlapping (eg."Blues Rock; Punk Blues; Alternative Rock; Garage Rock Revival; Garage Punk; Indie Rock; Folk" and "Folk; Blues Rock; Punk Blues; Alternative Rock; Garage Rock Revival; Garage Punk; Indie Rock", so it has become a useless way of organisation. Currently I don't really use the genre features of the app, hopefully this will be improved in the future. This also probably bothers some with artist tagging as well.

 

Such a Great App Otherwise

Exactly, this feature is needed.
I think is better an additional data-field for personal purposes. where you can add tags or your particular genres.

This conduce you to another problem. Maybe you are experienced in this, not all the data is read after you pass 2^9 characters into the datafield

This would be a great addition! I also have multiple entries in Genre. We should be able to specify the separation character as I know some use "/" and others use ";" to separate genres.

A multi-genre selector would be ideal, it could look something like this:
