  1. Just run a android emulator and install Poweramp in the emulator.
  2. +1 - All my music has the BPM tag populated. It would be great to be able to select BPM / Genre and then shuffle for things like workouts, walking, running, etc.
  3. Just can't go wrong with any of Mark's music all the way from "Dire Straits - Dire Straits" up through "Down the Road Wherever". But this one is extremely good and when the guests pop in on a couple of the songs there's no question as to who they are.
  4. When "All Songs" is listed by "Song Title" the "Artist"(s) could scroll back and forth and include all "Artists" specified in the tagging. When "All Songs" is listed by Artist you would then see a song listed multiple times under each of the artists in the Artist tag, but the duplicated songs would not be together. I don't see this as a problem, but as it should be.
  5. Since I believe that @maxmp has built his own database I do not think PA would be limited by what android does. To me, the support for multiple Artists / Album Artists is the biggest thing missing from PA's music organization functionality.
  6. As far as I know there will never be a desktop app for PA. A very nice product is Logitech Media server and client. It runs on just about anything other than Android and the cost is FREE. It can be controlled either through a web browser or apps that are available on both Android and iOS. The web interface has a couple of skins of which the material skin is very similar to PA. It's what I use at home on my main stereo system. I've written about this before;
  7. +1 - This would be great for Bluetooth! I'd like to lock Bluetooth at 100% max volume in PA and use the volume control on the Bluetooth attached device.
  8. To actually initiate a scan - Settings -> Library -> Either Rescan or Full Rescan. To manually set which folders get scanned - Settings -> Library -> Music Folders Also in Library there's a Auto-Find Music Folders option.
  9. Support for multiple Artist / Album Artist would be the Bee's Knee's. Use the same delimiter that's specified for multiple Genres. This would correct an issue for those of us that have tagged multiple Artist / Album Artist that is supported in other software on platforms PA doesn't support. I have several collaberation albums like "Union - Elton John;Leon Russell", "Raising Sand - Robert Plant;Allison Krauss", etc. As it is now these show up as Artist / Album Artist "Elton John;Leon Russell", "Robert Plant;Allison Krauss" which is a separate Artist / Album Artist. I would really like these albums to show up under each of the Artists / Album Artist.
  10. Wow, what quick turnaround, Thanks!
  11. Listing Albums by Artist (or Album Artist) is the way albums are displayed in a brick and mortar store. My take on the Album list is it should default to listing by Artist (or Album Artist) and should also have A - Z honored for listing by Artist (or Album Artist).
  12. Agree, Start Queue after current list should be reinstated.
  13. +1 - to all 3. 2a + 2b should be considered bugs.
  14. Funny thing... Our grandson, who's 10, wanted an MP3 player for Christmas. We had one that doesn't get used because we now have all our music on our phones for when we're away from home. Since we had the original box and all the stuff for the MP3 player we wrapped it up for him for Christmas. I bought a 256GB MicroSD card and put all our music on it and I asked him what his favorite songs were. He said "Monster - Skillet" and "Blue - Eifel 65". I'll admit I'd not heard of either band. Well, being an album type person I bought both the Skillet - Awake and Eifel 65 - Europop albums that have his favorite songs and put them on his player too. Yesterday I put both these albums on while we were running some errands. I might listen to Eifel 65 again sometime, but "Skillet - Awake" is a right fine album that I've spun up a few times now. I'd give it a full 4 of 5 stars! Oh, the grandson is tickled with his "new" MP3 player!
  15. Settings -> Library -> Lists - Scroll down to Filename as Title and toggle to Off. Side question... How many apps do you have manuals for?
  16. I would agree that this would be a very nice feature. I'm typically an album type person so an option here to set this to "Recently played Albums" would be wonderful. As an aside, another place where this would be nice is if I could set "Recently Added" to show recently added Albums. If you click on "By album" in the List Options of Recently Added I get a list of songs, but they're not recently added songs of recently added albums, appears to be who know what??
  17. You could use an app like TeamViewer to do this.
  18. Jumped back to 1975 Pop/Rock, Fleetwood Mac / Fleetwood Mac - a solid 5 star album.
  19. Plugged Moto x4 - Android 9 phone into PC and set to allow file sharing. Copied 3 albums to phone and then did a "Full rescan" (bottom item on Library settings) and here's what I got. Note that the 3 albums Awake, Fleetwood Mac and Europop show the "Folder.jpg" for each album and a song count, but no time. If you click on the album it shows no songs. I can go into File Manager and click the songs and they play with PA so it appears PA has a problem when reading some directories. I then restarted the phone and did the scan again and it picked up everything for all 3 new albums.
  20. My other music system that I use for my home stereo supports multiple artists in tags just fine so I have a bunch of music that has "singer1;singer2" in the artist and album artist tags. Poweramp just treats it as a single artist "singer1;singer2" which is separate from either. so if you have a library composed of just "singer1" and "singer2" and then have some music with both artists and your tag is "singer1;singer2", your library will now show 3 artisits, "singer1", "singer2" and "singer1;singer2". That's the way it currently works. I fully wish that PA would support multiple artists in tags just like it supports multiple genres in tags!
  21. I've had cases on microSD card where I added an album (folder) and then did a full rescan (bottom of Librarysetting screen) and had results similar to what you describe. I could see the folder, but the folder shows 0 songs. Can't remember if the Folder.jpg album art showed or not. Seems like I did a power cycle on the phone and then scanned again and the music showed up.
  22. If you want it like this all the time just change the album title Album (Disc 1) Album (Disc 2) It should now show as 2 discs.
  23. If you have "Folder.jpg" files in each of your album folders you can embed them using DBPowerAmp on a PC. DBPowerAmp is a Windows ripper/converter application that I use to rip my CD's. It has a utility codec addon called "ID Tag Update" that can take the "Folder.jpg" and embed it in the music files in the same folder. Using the Batch file converter in DBPowerAmp you can do your whole library in one shot. It will go through your entire library and all album folders with "Folder.jpg" files will be embedded into the ID tags of the music files in the same folder and then moves to the next folder and so on. One of my MP3 players is a Sony NW-A45 that only displays cover art that is embedded in the actual music files. So when I put new music on that player I attach it to my PC and use DBPowerAmp to embed the cover art in the music files.
  24. Being December I've loaded my Queue to Genre = Christmas and shuffled. 'Tis the Season.
