  1. What has this got to do with playlist filters? Please can you post new conversations in new topics, and in English if you want to get a wider response. Andre
  2. For listening to Podcasts, which are generally longer tracks, you could enable the "+/- 10 secs" buttons, and tap -10 before pressing Play. Andre
  3. If you have Android Auto on the head unit, try using that. I thought CarPlay was more for Apple devices? To activate Developer Options on your phone, go to Android Settings > About Phone > Software Information > then tap seven times on 'Build Number'. The option will then be permanently available in Android Settings. Have you tried turning DVC off as I suggested, or using a different output method for Bluetooth in PA Settings > Audio > Output ? Also worth changing PA Settings > Audio > Advanced Tweaks > Volume Levels back to system default. Andre
  4. I tend to leave it on Track Gain, as I rarely listen to whole albums in their entirely - and even when I do I prefer each track to be level-matched anyway. The only time I would find it useful is for concept albums or other gapless material. But yes @6b6561 , I did the same as you and spent a few days adjusting all of my tags to tidy up after years of mess. Multiple-Artist tags now all tidily semicoloned, Album Artist tags are all correctly set, Artist names tidied up so they are consistent (for case, usage of "The", etc). Then I threw everything into foobar2000 and cleared all existing ReplayGain tags and re-built them all. Some (such as my Singles folder) I removed the Album Gain tags completely, as they are pointless in that situation. Andre
  5. I'm pretty sure the Equalizer can only modify audio that's created through the regular Android audio channels, which I'm guessing would preclude most high-res implementations. And you could push the preamp level higher if you want, but all you'd be doing is adding clipping distortion. Gain matching systems tend to REDUCE gain to allow processing headroom, not increase it. Just because you can wind a knob up to 11 doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea. Andre
  6. I think we'll need some input from @maxmp on this, the setting used to be in the Headset/Bluetooth menu but it's not there now. Andre
  7. ReplayGain depends on small packets of data stored inside each audio file which tell the player the maximum levels that will be found within the file, and what adjustments need to be made to normalise the gain setting. To check if a file contains this data, start a song playing in PA and long-press on the artwork area and select 'Info/Tags' and you should see the Track, Album and Peaks values. If they are not present, you'll need to add them yourself, externally to Poweramp. I use foobar2000 on a computer to do this, you can drag your whole music collection folder onto it, select all, and use the right-click menu option ReplayGain > "Scan as Albums (by tags)". Once it has worked out all the values, click "Update File Tags" to write the data back to all the selected files. Each stage of this process could take a while with large numbers of files (could even be several hours for big collections) so just leave it to run. M4A is an Apple-centric format for which tag standards have never been formally published, but the details were reverse-engineered ages ago and ReplayGain should work fine with it. Andre
  8. I was just about to suggest that, it's an easy mistake to make. Andre
  9. It uses the car's microphone and speakers in Android Auto (just like for making phone calls) but the actual voice analytic logic is done on the phone and your words are processed online via Google. Andre
  10. That looks like the default skin, so use Settings > Look and Feel > Skin > Alternative Layout. But why not import all of your settings from your old device? Settings > Export Settings on the old, then copy the file over to the new and Import Settings. Any Album Art that PA has downloaded will be saved in PA's data folders, which you can copy over to the new device with any decent file explorer app (or via USB cable to a computer). If PA was first installed on older versions of Android, the folders will be found in Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/ (note the underscore), while on Android 10/11 installs the folders will be in Android/data/com.maxmpz.audioplayer/files/ (no underscore). You can copy all of the subfolders over if you want, but album art is stored in album_art (for auto-downloaded images) and selected_aa (for images you have manually chosen). Andre
  11. I know there were some issues in some skins with devices that are closer to square pixel ratios, rather than being the more normal rectangular layout, could that be the case here? Andre
  12. Check that the MusicFX item is still enabled in the second tab of the Equalizer screens. Andre
  13. I seem to recall there used to be a setting to do this (for older devices which did not show album names) but I don't think it ever made it into PA v3. Can you test with another bluetooth device to see what that does? Andre
  14. The only way would be by using Google Assistant voice commands - "OK Google, Play xxxxxx". You can't use a keyboard in Android Auto while driving, you should not really be reading anything from the screen at all in fact. There is a 'search by letter' function in some categories, but that's just for narrowing down a longer list to the first letter of the name - and again not a good idea while driving. Andre
  15. Settings > Library > Lists > List Item Click Action (set to stay in list). Andre
  16. You had reached the limit for maximum number of forum messenger conversations. I've increased it a bit for you. Andre
  17. 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
  18. @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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. @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
  24. 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
  25. Not sure what you are referring to? Do you mean the cutoff frequency ratio? Andre
