  1. The point is, the Music FX is a toggle control that doesn't toggle anything and is best used only as a link to system sound controls, that again, don't control anything related to sound output when Poweramp's DVC is on. Thats not up to the standards of Poweramp's UI that otherwise is very thought off and coherent, hence my post and propositions above.
  2. On my phone (Samsung Galaxy S9+, Exynos variant, Android 10, Poweramp build 861) the MusicFX button doesn't change the sound at all. I noticed that to use system sound settings (Dolby Atmos, tone controls etc.) I have to disable DVC. However when DVC is disabled then system sound settings are in effect regardless of the state of the MusicFX button - pressing the button doesn't change the sound. Similarly, when DVC is on, the system sound settings don't work and it doesn't matter if the MusicFX is on or off. Because of that the UI is somewhat erratic: - I can enable the button regardless of the DVC state even if we know that the system sound settings won't work with DVC. - Regardless of the DVC state, switching the button on or off doesn't change anything. Can the UI behaviour be fixed? 1. The easiest way of fix would be to replace the MusicFX button with a link to system sound settings. The link should work when DVC is off, when DVC is on the link should be greyed out. The link itself could be activated from within the settings (as it is the case with the MusicFX button now). 2. The more complicated way of fix would be to disable (grey out) the button when DVC is on and enable the button only when the DVC is off - and making it actually switch the system sound settings on or off (if it can be done - I don't know). 3. The third way of fixing it would be to change the button function from "enable or disable system sound settings" (that doesn't work anyway) with "shortcut to enable or disable DVC from within UI". Then if DVC is off, long pressing the button would take user to the system sound settings. If DVC is on, long press would not work or inform a user that system sound setting won't have any effect unless DVC is off. I think any of the options above would make Poweramp's UI slightly more coherent - I would prefer option 3. 🙂
  3. Great! Many thanks for the update. May I suggest two things: Disc number (if enabled) should always be displayed together with the track number - be it in meta, list or title. As it is now (disc number always in meta) it doesn't visually group the tracks into discs, and if the track number is set to be displayed in a list or title, we have to look to two places for every track to get the full information. Track and Disc number display format. I think "disc track" or 'disc.track" would be more readable than "track/disc" - especially in meta, where there are "|" separators, too. Also, the disc number should be before the track number.
  4. Thanks for the update, track numbers work great! How about disc numbers - would you add them, too (if exist)? In 858 they are not visible.
  5. I would like to be able to see disc and track number, taken from file's tags, in the album list and on the main screen. I can imagine that switching the display of numbers for main screen could be done in "Settings\Look and Feel\Player UI" and for the individual lists it would be switched on in these list options. Changing list sort mode shouldn't hide the numbers - that way one can easily see the sort order of an album is not the "default" one.
  6. The track number, along with disc number in front of it, would be very useful indeed. I have a lot of multidisc albums, without a disc and track number locating the track I want to play is very cumbersome.
  7. Oh, by the way, would it be possible to add support for additional date field in Poweramp? Musicbrainz Picard uses the default "date" field to store particular release's release date (so, for example, 2012 for a 2012 reissue of 1970 album), while the original date the music was first released is stored in the "originaldate" field (Musicbrainz tagging). It would be great if one could choose whether to use "date" or "originaldate" for sorting and display purposes!
  8. Hi, thanks for the update! Inoticed that when I use "Reset" button on the Equ/Tone/Limit screen the values are reset however all the effects: Equ, Tone and Limiter get switched on. Is it by design or is it a bug? Also, when one uses Reverb, there is no information about it in the Audio Info screen.
  9. I fully understand that. I think however that it would be better to allow interface to scroll (horizontally and vertically) rather than to overlap controls - do you think it would be possible?
  10. I tried (briefly) to search the forum for a problem like this but didn't find anything so here it goes the report: the tone controls screen doesn't scale well in certain scenarios: divided screen mode on Samsung Galaxy or when an app in a pop-up mode is resized beyond certain size. Please look at the attached screenshots.
  11. There are several system sound settings in Galaxy S9+: Dolby Atmos, simple and advanced equalizer, three tweaks like UHQ scaler and then the sound adapt. I didn't use sound adapt but the other settings like Atmos and equalizer to change the sound to the point when I was sure if MusicFX button works or not.
  12. OK, I understand - but then the UI is somewhat erratic: I can enable the button regardless of the DVC state even if we know that the system sound settings won't work with DVC. Regardless of the DVC state, switching the button on or off doesn't change anything. I see three ways of fixing UI behaviour: The easiest way of fix would be to replace the MusicFX button with a link to system sound settings. The link should work when DVC is off, when DVC is on the link should be greyed out. The link itself could be activated from within the settings (as it is the case with the MusicFX button now). The more complicated way of fix would be to disable (grey out) the button when DVCis on and enable the button only when the DVC is off - and making it actually switch the system sound settings on or off (if it can be done - I don't know). The third way of fixing it would be to change the button function from "enable or disable system sound settings" (that doesn't work anyway) with "shortcut to enable or disable DVC from within UI". Then if DVC is off, long pressing the button would take user to the system sound settings.

Currently the only useful function of this button is opening system sound settings after a long press. Would it be possible to fix it so the button actually works - or if it cannot be fixed - so the button is disabled in certain situations?
