  1. Thanks heaps for fixing the ReplayGain bug - the files I was having trouble with with foobar2000 are now working. Currently in the process of rewriting my ReplayGain tags with foobar2000 (which is thankfully much faster than MusicBee at calculating them and will only take 10 minutes). Would be nice to have other ReplayGain tag formats supported in the future, but it is worth the effort to re-calculate them to finally have ReplayGain on a portable player!

  2. Ww were promised search function will be improved in version 2, but in my opinion, this is not the case. First, there should be a dedicated button (not combination of button tappings) for that on the main screen and this should allow me to directly browse by artist, genre, title, year... Instead, there are several buttons, which are not that often used.

    Is the dedicated search key most android phones have not dedicated enough (or usually hold menu button on others)? I do notice it seems to be a bit buggy though - the button doesn't always work for me. I do wonder if the equalizer and tone controls are needed at the top though (and could be replaced by a search button I guess - though it is already accessible from the menu as well). You can also get to the library to browse by tapping the current playing song (and search also returns albums/artists/composers etc.). I also wonder if filter and search should be better integrated.

    I do agree with your idea that it would be nice to show genre etc. particularly instead of sample rate (and current playlist - can be hard to know what next list button will do). Bit rate can be occasionally useful (but not really necessary) but I can't think of a time I have ever needed the sample rate.

    There is a huge list of features that have been implemented for version 2 and we can't have everything at once. There are some things I would rather weren't pushed back to 2.x (like rating tags) over ones that have been implemented that I don't need (like lyric download) but a lot of different people use the app for different things.

    For Replay Gain, Foobar2000 is a reference for Poweramp, i.e. Foobar2000 created RG info should be readable by Poweramp (Foobar2000 is closer to standards where they exist). But RG tagging is different across formats.

    I still can't get it to work. I even tried applying ReplayGain (with foobar2000 1.1.8) to a song that has never had ReplayGain applied (as removing it and adding it back with foobar2000 wasn't working), but it still doesn't want to work. I am puzzled that it seems to work for a few of my files (presumably the ones that had replaygain from ripping with DBPowerAmp) but not others. I have tried a complete library re-scan. Maybe I should try clearing data for Poweramp?

  4. Hi,

    First of all I absolutely love the new interface! (apart from I feel it is a little to easy to accidentally change track by swiping).

    I am having some issues with ReplayGain support not working very often. In the end I figured out it seems that MusicBee is writing ReplayGain tags in a different format (in MediaInfo they show as REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN etc.), they are also human readable in the file (possibly a different ID3 tag version?). There seem to be a bunch of different ReplayGain tagging methods. The tags work in Foobar2000 but it writes them out in a different format when saving new ones (they show up as friendly names in MediaInfo but don't want to work in Poweramp either). There seem to be a few tracks here and there where they have been applied differently that work correctly (probably done earlier by something else).

    What software did you use for encoding ReplayGain tags? (don't mind redoing them as Poweramp seems to be the odd one out in format support) - would be nice to support the other formats though.
