  2. You had reached the limit for maximum number of forum messenger conversations. I've increased it a bit for you. Andre
  3. I was just looking through my playlists for something, and I noticed the original two bugs referred to at the start of this thread are still present in build 911. Most of my file-based playlists have now been partially corrupted over time. I had copied them all over from my clean computer master copies back in June, while we were doing the various tests for this thread, and they all worked fine then. But now, pretty much all of them seem to have had the 'random-appending' issue that was discussed earlier - some several times over by the look of it. For example, this is the end of a 'soft rock / ballads' playlist. All of the earlier content in the file is fine - but here at the end, PA keeps re-appending the last few lines back onto the end of the file again. The last genuine item is the \\diskstation entry for "Where Peaceful Waters Flow", the rest has been appended by PA. \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\(Singles)\My Immortal - Evanesence (Band Version).mp3 \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\(Singles)\Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks.mp3 \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\(Singles)\Nights In White Satin - The Moody Blues.mp3 \\diskstation\music\TV, Films & Shows\(Film Music)\Take My Breath Away - Berlin.mp3 \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\(Singles)\Waiting for a Girl Like You - Foreigner.mp3 \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\(Singles)\Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum.mp3 \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\Barclay James Harvest\(1981) Turn Of The Tide\05 - Echoes And Shadows - Barclay James Harvest.mp3 \\diskstation\music\Andre MP3s\Chris de Burgh\(1989) Spark to a Flame [Collection]\15 Where Peaceful Water Flow - Chris de Burgh.mp3 Folders/(40) Films/(Film Music)/Take My Breath Away - Berlin.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/(Singles)/Waiting for a Girl Like You - Foreigner.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/(Singles)/Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/Barclay James Harvest/(1981) Turn Of The Tide/05 - Echoes And Shadows - Barclay James Harvest.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/Chris de Burgh/(1989) Spark to a Flame [Collection]/15 Where Peaceful Water Flow - Chris de Burgh.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(40) Films/(Film Music)/Take My Breath Away - Berlin.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/(Singles)/Waiting for a Girl Like You - Foreigner.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/(Singles)/Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/Barclay James Harvest/(1981) Turn Of The Tide/05 - Echoes And Shadows - Barclay James Harvest.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/Chris de Burgh/(1989) Spark to a Flame [Collection]/15 Where Peaceful Water Flow - Chris de Burgh.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(40) Films/(Film Music)/Take My Breath Away - Berlin.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/(Singles)/Waiting for a Girl Like You - Foreigner.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/(Singles)/Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/Barclay James Harvest/(1981) Turn Of The Tide/05 - Echoes And Shadows - Barclay James Harvest.mp3 #EXT-X-RATING:0 D0D8-84ED/MusicFolders/(60) Music/Chris de Burgh/(1989) Spark to a Flame [Collection]/15 Where Peaceful Water Flow - Chris de Burgh.mp3 Also, playlist files are still being completely overwritten by PA following the simple act of long-pressing on any contained song title - for example to view Info/Tags. IMHO, file rewrites should only occur when a content change has been made to that playlist. Andre
  4. @mark586 I have a few issues with the grid views in recent builds too, especially when metadata is involved. Could be conflicts with my choice of fonts and sizes of course. I don't use grid view much, so I hadn't noticed. Andre
  5. What sort of output, and what output method? Try disabling DVC and/or the set the volume stepping option back to default. If Bluetooth with DVC, check that the Absolute Volume Control option in Android Settings > Developer Options is disabled. Andre
  6. All changes are saved automatically, when you return to the app (even after a reboot) everything should be the same as it was before. Are you asking for an Automatic Export/Backup of settings and the database to a file, in case you break your phone for example and want to re-install PA onto a new device using the same settings from the SD Card? Andre
  7. Unfortunately, you cannot restore a Google Play purchase onto devices which do not have the Play Store installed - such as Huawei phones for example - unless you sideload the necessary Google features first. If you cannot install the Play Store, you would need to purchase a different licence, such as from the Huawei App Gallery or direct from the Poweramp website. Andre
  8. It's the equivalent of what SoX/Foobar refers to as "passband" (where the default is 95%). It relates to pass filters to reduce artefact effects at certain frequencies when transcoding from one sampling rate to another. Andre
  9. @DGTLYYRS Just uninstall app and the unlocker, then re-install both. You could also clear app data in Android Settings for good measure, but for recent PA builds settings should not be recovered from the cloud anyway. Andre
  10. You may need to check your output settings (try a different mode or DVC setting) but otherwise, Settings > Audio > Audio Focus > Short Audio Focus and Pause in Call should be enabled. Second
  11. Not sure what you are referring to? Do you mean the cutoff frequency ratio? Andre
  12. Try putting the file in the root of your internal storage then. Andre
  13. I've not actually checked with any scrobblers (I don't use them) but I assume it sends the whole expanded Artist tag, rather than individual split artist names. In that case, if you do manually put odd characters into the Artist string, they would get sent too, which as you say might muddle it. I assume you have your chosen separator block character copied into the 'Symbols to Split Multiple Artists' settings line? Andre
  14. Have you assigned storage access permissions again after you cleared app data? Andre
  15. @Richard Burton Just download the trial version from the Play Store. Then download the unlocker app (making sure you are using the same Google account you purchased with) Andre
  16. Ironically, you are experiencing exactly the slightly-confusing situation that I was describing. When using MP3Tag, typing "\\" to separate two or more Artist, Composer, or Genre names is treated as a special code within that program only. MP3Tag does not save the actual "\\" characters, but instead it creates two completely separate ARTIST tags for FLAC/Vorbis files, or it inserts null-byte separators in MP3/ID3 tags which does the same thing. For example, in MP3Tag's editor screen, this song has the Artist field set as "Paul Simon\\Art Garfunkel", Genre as "Pop\\Folk", and Composer as "P Simon\\A Garfunkel", and that results in the following embedded content in the file: | - Tag 'ARTIST' (17 bytes): | 01f9: 41 52 54 49 53 54 3d 50 61 75 6c 20 53 69 6d 6f [ARTIST=Paul Simo] | 0209: 6e [n] | - Tag 'ARTIST' (20 bytes): | 020e: 41 52 54 49 53 54 3d 41 72 74 20 47 61 72 66 75 [ARTIST=Art Garfu] | 021e: 6e 6b 65 6c [nkel] | - Tag 'GENRE' (9 bytes): | 024e: 47 45 4e 52 45 3d 50 6f 70 [GENRE=Pop] | - Tag 'GENRE' (10 bytes): | 025b: 47 45 4e 52 45 3d 46 6f 6c 6b [GENRE=Folk] | - Tag 'COMPOSER' (16 bytes): | 028a: 43 4f 4d 50 4f 53 45 52 3d 50 20 53 69 6d 6f 6e [COMPOSER=P Simon] | - Tag 'COMPOSER' (20 bytes): | 029e: 43 4f 4d 50 4f 53 45 52 3d 41 20 47 61 72 66 75 [COMPOSER=A Garfu] | 02ae: 6e 6b 65 6c [nkel] | - Tag 'ALBUMARTIST' (29 bytes): | 0269: 41 4c 42 55 4d 41 52 54 49 53 54 3d 53 69 6d 6f [ALBUMARTIST=Simo] | 0279: 6e 20 26 20 47 61 72 66 75 6e 6b 65 6c [n & Garfunkel] Poweramp sees these instances of multiple tags and simply saves them in its database as one string with a semicolon between each name. Which, as you say, does look rather like you had actually created the name as "Paul Simon; Art Garfunkel" in the first place. My suggestion was to use something more unique - such as that diamond symbol - to show that the names are really separate items in the embedded data, rather than being one longer string. Andre
  17. @Toks Kitoks See the post immediately prior to yours. Does changing the Audio Output method, or enable/disable DVC, or turn off multiple volume stepping options, help? Are you using Android Auto in the car, or just using it as a plain Bluetooth receiver? Andre
  18. I was just playing with tags, as an example of how I think individual separate ARTIST tags - or null-character separated items in ID3 tags - could be handled for display. If the embedded tag data actually contains a real semicolon character (or "//", or whatever) in the stored string, then that string should be displayed verbatim in the Artist field. But when Poweramp is "inventing" a symbol of its own in order to show two entirely separate pieces of text side-by-side, a unique character ought to be used rather than simulating as if a semicolon was present. After a bit of trial and error in a tag editor, I thought the medium black diamond (Unicode U+2B25), padded with a space either side, seemed to look the nicest so I manually added that into one song's Artist tag as a test. I then pasted that same character into PA's 'Symbols to Split Multiple Artists' setting, and it worked really well. My suggestion was that PA use that type of symbol as its 'invented' separator when no actual character exists in the tag(s). To your second point, at present you cannot alter the format of that second line on the player screen or in list displays, it is always shown as "%artist% - %album%". There have been a number of requests for an ability to customise both the upper and lower lines via each List Options menu though, but that's not something that has been implemented as yet. See this thread: Andre
  19. Excellent, good to know. Could probably have been worked around on the Poweramp side too, but looks like JRMC fixed it in their code first. Andre
  20. Poweramp should be converting down to Chromecast supported frequencies, but in case it's a high-res conversion issue (source is 24bit/192kHz FLAC) please could you try with a regular bitrate file (CD ripped MP3 or similar). What device and Android version are you using? Andre
  21. @maxmp Just a quick thought to add to this, but when adding a Pitch control does come up to the top of the EQ to-do list, could I suggest rather than having three knobs (for Tempo, Speed, and Pitch) you implement just two knobs, for Speed and Pitch, and add an extra switch to enable synchronising of the two controls. So if that switch is active, turning down the Speed control would increase the Pitch appropriately to compensate, and vice versa - just like the current Tempo knob does. It just seems easier than having three conflicting rotary knobs to worry about. Andre
  22. If no difference, reboot too for good measure. Andre
  23. As it seems to be from background usage, the most likely thing would be an issue with storage access / background file scanning. Try turning all of PA's AutoScan options off in PA Settings > Library > Scanner and see if that changes things. Also for recent Android versions, turn off PA Settings > Misc > Keep Service and Use Wakelock. Andre
  24. I'm sure a Pitch control will happen at some point. Indeed, Max mentioned about 18 months ago that he would probably look into implementing it sometime after the much-requested stand-alone Equalizer app was released, which has now happened. I doubt he sees it quite as you do as any kind of urgent and vital revenue generating tool though, but more as a nicety to complement the existing Tempo knob in the EQ module. Maybe this thread will jog his memory anyway? Andre
  25. Sorry, I don't know where on Max's to-do list the Favourites category idea sits. It was originally discussed about 7 months ago in : Andre
