  1. There is still a fade-in at the beginning of tracks. As far as I can tell, no fade-in issues have been fixed. Even with every available fade-in setting disabled, there is still a fade. I paid for this app and would gladly donate to fix this long broken feature, but still zero has been done to remove the fade.
  2. On my .CUE-based FLAC albums, Poweramp skips the last few seconds of each track. Phone: Samsung Galaxy Note9 Android: v8.1.0 Powerbamp build: v3-build-820-play (Full Version)
  3. Just accidentally changed tracks via the swipe again: To get from the Now Playing screen to the current artist's other albums, it's swipe down then swipe right, and it's easy to get these confused when swiping quickly.

    Still no way to disable fade-in

    I just found that there seems to be an additional fade-in/fade-out associated with Bluetooth headphones. Very noticeable on a track such as Linkin Park's Papercut.
  5. I turned off gapless preload, and it seems to have fixed the problem.
  6. I don't know why some people have such a bone for swiping. It's messy and doesn't work well. And it's confusing, now that there are several other places to swipe, such as swiping right on a track list to go to the album list. I paid for this media player, and it's the best one I know of for Android. I would gladly contribute to a Patreon project or some other method of continuing revenue for the developer. I support the developer of my favorite podcast app this way. It's ridiculous to remove usability features with no option to get them back. I can understand that if you like swiping, it may be hard to understand why somebody else wouldn't. And I understand that the developer can't predict everyone's preference. But this media player isn't just another free app to me; I paid for it and would love the opportunity to continue to support the developer financially, and I would even support a "bounty" model for users to pay (vote with their dollars) to get certain features/bugs moved up in priority. I'd pay to fix this one.
  7. Swiping isn't part of "the latest technical features". Removing a critical usability feature isn't a step forward.
  8. @andrewilley, I always have crossfade disabled. Gapless preload was set to 3100ms. I just set it to None and will test this for a bit. I thought the preload just cached the first few seconds of the next track; is it meant to skip the last few seconds?
  9. @maxmp, Swiping to navigate on mobile UIs has always been problematic for me, and I've never wanted it. I have accidentally changed tracks with a "swipe" dozens of times; I have intentionally changed tracks with a wipe zero times. Why was this option removed? This was an actively used feature in v2. Please bring it back

    This seems to only happen on .CUE albums

    Scrobbling still broken!

    Yes I do

    Scrobbling still broken!

    When I listen to a song on repeat, it's scrobbled correctly each time it's played. I have had a LOT of trouble with this in the past, with other scrobbling apps and with alpha/beta versions of Poweramp. But with the final version of v2 and the production versions of v3 I have not had this issue.

    Scrobbling still broken!

    I hate to be "that guy", but I don't have this issue with v3. I did have scrobbling issues with the pre-release versions I tested, however, which is one reason I always reverted from the pre-release versions back to v2 until v3 came out. With v3, scrobbling has worked perfectly for me since it came out. Details: I have a Galaxy Note9 with Android 8.1.0. SLS v1.5.7 I have all battery conservation settings disabled for SLS. Poweramp v3-build-820-play (Full Version) - It just updated to the new Play version. Scrobbling in the previous v3 release version worked just fine for me too. "Scrobble via Simple Last.fm" is enabled If you want to compare against any of my other settings, let me know.

    I've noticed that on some songs (not all), it will not play the last ~4 seconds and then skip to the next song. But I've had this happen in the middle of an album too, not just at the end.

    Problems with Crossfade, Fade and Gapless

    I have also noticed that the fade-in settings are not honored in v3. I have a post about that here: This was present in the Alpha: And it was present in v2: Best I can tell, little has been done to fix the issues with fade-in. Personally, I can't think of a reason why anyone would want fade-in at the beginning of a track.
  16. When I start a track, the first ~half second doesn't play due to a fade-in. I have many songs that start immediately with a drum hit or a loud note, but Poweramp has an aggressive fade-in at the beginning of a track (even the fade/cross-fade settings disabled), so the very first part of the track is missed. (I reported this for v2 here and was asked to test it on alpha.)On the Audio -> Crossfade and Fade screen, there are two relevant options: Fade play/pause/stop - This is off Play/pause/stop fade length - This cannot be set to zero Even Fade play/pause/stop disabled, the fade length setting is still honored. I can improve the situation by changing the length to 50 ms, but this value cannot be set to zero.A good way to illustrate this is to set the fade length setting to 1000ms and then play a track that is immediately loud; you will hear the very noticeable fade in, even with Fade play/pause/stop disabled.Seems like the fix for this would be to honor the Fade play/pause/stop setting and/or allow the fade length value to be set to 0. I have purchased the full version, but this setting is so important to me I'd be happy to donate extra $$ to see it resolved Versions:alpha-build-709-play (Full Version)Samsung Galaxy S7Android version 8.0.0

    Still no way to disable fade-in

    Version: v3-build-816-play (Full version) Phone: Galaxy Note9 (SM-N960U) on T-Mobile running Android 8.1.0 App settings: * Auto-advance fading: No fading * Manual Track Change Fading: No fading * Fade Play/Pause/Stop: Off * Fade on Seek: Off * All of the "Length" settings can't be set to zero, so I have them on max length to make fading more obvious for troubleshooting

    Poweramp beta build-792

    The fade-in bug still hasn't been fixed. More details here:
  21. I just tested the fade-in again with In Your Words by Lamb of God, and the problem isn't even close to fixed. If I start on the previous track and hit next track, there's a fade-in. Also, if a different track is playing and I tap on the track to play it, there's a fade-in. Poweramp is simply not honoring the settings, still.
  22. @djdarko, Just installed 792 and playing with it. So far, Last.fm scrobbling isn't working, I can't disable swiping to change tracks, and there doesn't seem to be a normal seekbar. Even if the fade is fixed, all three of these issues are dealbreakers for me, so I may have to switch back to the last stable version. I'll still test fade before switching back though. Thanks.

    Poweramp beta build-792

    Also: How can I disable swipe to change tracks? I no longer see the option How can I get the normal seekbar back? It's now very hard to seek within a track
