  1. Have you got round to reading the instructions in the forum yet? What apps are you trying to use, do they support external equalizers? Otherwise, try: Andre
  2. To make SoundCloud itself support external EQ apps natively, you need to contact the Soundcloud devs and get them up update their code (it's a very simple change). However there are workarounds that may help. Have you run the ADB permissions fix which allows a lot more apps to be set up as Known Players? Andre
  3. @Enrique_Salazar If you bought direct from the website, please contact poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com to get your registration details updated. However if you bought from the Play Store, you need to have the original Google account that you originally purchased with on the new device, Google purchases cannot be transferred between accounts. Andre
  4. As far as I recall, the Shuffle icon at the top of any Category's song-list view (including the one shown at the top of every Playlist) has always triggered 'Shuffle Songs and Categories' mode. Selecting this mode means that all of the songs in the currently viewed Playlist will be played in random order, exactly as expected. The 'Categories' bit only comes into play to determine what happens next - assuming you have 'Advance Categories' set as your Repeat mode anyway. In 'Shuffle Songs and Categories', another playlist will be chosen at random and then all of its songs will be played in
  5. When doing direct comparisons, make sure especially that DVC is only enabled for app one or the other, trying to have both enabled won't work. There will most likely be differences in the sound between the two though. As I understand it, they each work in fundamentally different ways. Poweramp has all of its audio processing code included within the app itself, so all of the EQ processing is done internally in Poweramp before passing it (via Android) to the output hardware. The stand-alone EQ app is more like a 'front-end' which passes the actual audio processing tasks over to Android's a
  6. A similar Android Auto bug was just reported in another thread, which seems easier to replicate across various flatter Categories. I think it's likely to be related to this report too. Andre
  7. Actually this seems to happen with Android Auto in any Category - Albums, Artists, Folders, Playlists, etc. @maxmp If you go into any category in AA, and tap the Shuffle button at the top of the songs list, PA starts shuffling the first group object in that Category rather than the currently viewed one. Andre
  8. It's not generally a good idea to use both equalizers at the same time. Just disable the stand-alone app from working with the main Poweramp app's output - untick it in PA-EQ > Settings > Equalizer > Known Players. Andre
  9. Try setting the Hi-Res output frequency to 192kHz/24-bit. Also try with DVC on or off. Andre
  10. I'm just letting you know how it works. Repeat plays of the same song have never been counted though, and that is by design. The feature-update to implement a one-song playback mode a year ago (build 856) combined with the percentage threshold method for play counts (build 899; previously the count was incremented merely by opening a track without needing to actually play any of it) means that the behaviour is perhaps not exactly as you would wish though - hence this Feature Request for it to work in a different manner. My own preference (for what it's worth, and remember I'm not th
  11. Repeat plays are ignored deliberately, Max decided to actively NOT count any repetitive playbacks as 'new' plays. Other than that, the play-count increment system is very simple, it occurs whenever the track changes: if the counter has got beyond the configured threshold figure, the count gets incremented. Of course that fails if you spool back to the start of the same track before moving on. Andre
  12. It's not a bug insofar as the feature is functioning as per design. However I do agree that, especially in the recently implemented 'one song' playback mode, the design is not necessarily what everyone might want it do be. I'll move this thread to Feature Requests for you. Personally I think that if the song-play-count method stays the way it is, then in single-song mode the counter ought to stay paused at the END of the current song when it is finished (so pressing Play at that point could start the next song playing, rather than playing the same one again). Either that, or achieving the
  13. I tend to use Folders mode rather than Folders Hierarchy, but I assume that AA shuffling within Folders Hierarchy works in the same way that it does when playing in the main app. That means that a random subfolder is picked first, and all of its songs are played in shuffled order. Then a new random subfolder is chosen and that too is played in shuffled order, etc. If you instead want ALL songs from ALL of the subfolders to be completely jumbled in any order (without any subfolder grouping), enable PA Settings > Library > Lists > Shuffle All Songs in Folder Hierarchy. Andre
  14. Still the same solution, which is my normal way of starting Poweramp playback, I never use the Play icon at the top of the phone screen (although I do sometimes use the Shuffle one). Just open the subfolder and select the song you want to start playing. As long as you have Repeat mode set to 'Advance Category' (which is the default) PA will carry on playing the next subfolders/etc in order. Andre
  15. To play, just select a song. No need for a special button. Andre
