  1. Thank you for the helpful reply. So, if I understand correctly, the only practical process is to drag/drop using Windows Explorer from my Music Folder on the laptop to my devices. And, since I want to duplicate my music/media on 2 devices (phone and tablet), it would be best to drag/drop first to an external drive and then copy everything to my devices. Something like this...? Poweramp - Master Folder Albums Subfolder Guitar Songs Subfolder (some songs may be duplicated in the Albums subfolder - is that ok?) Backing Tracks Subfolder Other Subfolder(s) as needed Unfortunately, it sounds like a cumbersome process (at least the first time). I have hundreds of artists and a thousand+ albums in hundreds of subfolders (600 GB). I don't want all my music on my devices, plus my sd cards don't have enough storage. I wouldn't do much changing after I get a significant amount of music on my devices. I came across the app - Droid Transfer - which seemingly has an option to export music from iTunes. But, it is not a media player only a file transfer app. It would still be cumbersome to transfer music, but it would be much easier visually to scroll through my iTunes library and select albums/songs instead of tediously opening folders/subfolders with Windows Explorer. As for metadata, I think it is embedded in the files. iTunes is just a library, so if I am seeing artist info/artwork in iTunes then I am assuming that that is because the metadata is in the actual music files on my laptop. If I can do the above folder/file structure with Poweramp on my devices then I do not think I need playlists. If I want to make playlists can I use Poweramp after my files are on my devices? My apologies for all the questions. I hope I am explaining everything ok. Thank you again Andrew
  2. Hello I am looking for a new music/media player to replace Rocket Player for my Android devices. I have an older Samsung A50S mobile and a Galaxy Tab A7 with SD cards. I have a few questions to see if Poweramp will meet my needs. I do not need streaming at all. I do not care about an equalizer, skins, etc. 1) I want to be able to transfer music from my iTunes Library (on my laptop) to my devices. The library has both ALAC and MP3 files. 2) I want to add other files, such as guitar backing tracks from my laptop and not stored in iTunes. For example, an "Albums" playlist and then some songs from the Albums playlist in another playlist for musical practice? I know how to create separate playlists in iTunes, but then how do I easily get the playlist - and the music files - into Poweramp? I have a lot of cds/albums that I want on my devices. Probably 100 GB or so. Does Poweramp have some sort of 'sync' feature/app? Or is it only drag and drop from laptop to external device? And, then direct Powermap to add/find the media folders? (Rocket Player had a sync feature/app between laptop and device) Can I do this with Poweramp? Use my iTunes Library (plus the other files) and create different playlists(folders) and how do I get all this onto my devices easily and organized? Hopefully, the above makes sense. I've already emailed directly to support last week but I have not yet received a reply. I do not mind paying for an app if it does what I need, there is support and it is updated and maintained. Thank you Andrew
