  1. I believe that V3 always supports gapless. I've had problems with some of my older rips that I used the Fraunhofer encoder, there's a slight gap on music that's supposed to be gapless and play gapless perfectly on my PC based music system (Logitech Music System). As I find them I rerip the CD using my now DBPoweramp which uses the LAME MP3 encoder and they play gapless perfectly on Poweramp. I think that the problem was the encoder and not Poweramp since they work fine after reripping.

    Skipping, Stuttering Songs

    Can't remember which version, but one of my version upgrades caused what sounds like your stuttering problem. I don't use Hi-Res because all the music on my phone is MP3 VBR LAME V0 which is about as good as you can get in MP3 land, but by no means qualifies as Hi-Res (for that matter FLAC ripped from audio CD isn't Hi-Res either). I went to settings -> Audio -> Output -> OpenSL ES Output and then the settings gear for Wired... and Bluetooth and increased both the Buffer ms and Buffer #. This has cured the stuttering up to and including the current v840-841 versions of PA.

    Going for some Bluegrass from 1977. All acoustic mandolin, fiddle, guitar and stand up bass.

    Imbeded covers

    I was referring to MP3Tag for Windows, not an Android app. I do all my ripping and tag maintenance on Windows where I keep the master copy of my music library.

    Imbeded covers

    If you're just looking for cover art you can find almost all art either at amazon.com or allmusic.com. Then search on album or artist. Once you've got the art you want you can use MP3Tag to embed it in the MP3 files or you can just leave it as a stand alone file in the album folder.

    I'll jump in here. I use DBPoweramp for my ripper on Windows 10. It rips to about any format you want (FLAC, MP3 CBR/ABR/VBR, WAV, etc), get's tag info from several sources, will get album art and you can either embed the art in the music files or you can have it just place the art in the album folder as "Folder.jpg" and uses a "AccurateRip" database that verifies the rip (EAC also uses AccurateRip). In my opinion DBPoweramp is the best ripper out there, I'd put EAC in 2nd place.
  9. If I go to Library -> Album Artists it always goes to the top of the list. It would be really nice if there where an option to remember where I was last in a view. If the last time I was in Album Artist I was in the "J"'s it would be cool if the next time I went to Album Artists it would go in at the "J" item I was at the last time I was there. I would think this would be a great feature for most, if not all, of the Library -> Whatever categorizes. Thanks for the consideration!

    A little yard work to some of the great bands of the 60's.

    Add "been played" option to shuffling

    +1 This would be a great enhancement for a given shuffled selection. By this I mean if you selected an artist and selected to shuffle all songs by that artist there would be no repeat of any song until all songs by that artist have been played. If you hadn't also selected repeat then playing would stop.

    Some great Blues by a 14 year old kid back in 2013. Mentored by and plays with Buddy Guy frequently.

    The Music - What Are You Listening to?

    It is in the Pop/Rock genre. The music is wonderful and has a driving quality that is very fitting to the messages. Criticizes the US government on countries that are called "friends" like governments that commit genocide in their countries and the US government looks the other way.

    The Music - What Are You Listening to?

    A fantastic album from 1986, Jackson Browne / Lives in the Balance. The issues this album talks about are very much still relevant regarding the world political state and the plight of the poor around the world.

    Remove Fade

    Ahhh, Hi-Res. That's why I've not seen this issue. Since all my music on my phone is highest quality MP3 VBR there's not much point to Hi-Res since Hi-Res should have no effect on even the highest quality MP3. And not to start a flame war but, my opinion is that even native CD quality 44.1kHz / 16 bit ripped to lossless FLAC or WAV will gain nothing from Hi-Res. The majority of "Hi-Res" type downloads are really just resampled from original analog recordings which I don't think gain anything other than extracting money from your pocket.
