  1. I just threw them together one day using clipart from the internets. I attached a zip file with the ones I used and some different color sets. I also included the Photoshop file you can quickly change the colors to whatever you want and you could even put different ones in there if you kind of know what you're doing. genre.zip
  2. I have about 2 TB, but I only keep an essentials library on my phone that is currently 90% mp3 (115gb). I recently started upgrading my favorites on the phone to either 24bit Flac (If available) or 16bit FLAC. I figured I would upgrade a huge chunk to flac and see if I needed to upgrade to 512gb. The 400gb was on sale for $35. There is also a request for the Explicit icon. I think these two might not be high-up on the "to do list" as it probably requires some rework of the UI. I ended up using a batch rename program to add a 🄴 icon at the end of all song titles that were Explicit. It only shows up as a box on the PC but it's a E in a Box on mobile devices. It took me a few hours so it was a PIA. There's a 🆨 icon for Hi-Res. But again a PIA to manually add and I think that ones hard to read.
  3. Thank you. Yeah I have a few songs in "Industrial", "International Rap", "Instrumental", and "Metalcore" also tagged as "Lossless". Obviously you can't tell by looking because I use the ; separator. I'm not sure if multiple genres is supported in the Sony hi res media player or the LG's built in players. I've heard LG requires you to use their player in order to use the quad dac. Not sure if that's accurate. I've had the Sony Hi-res player on my wish list for a few years, but I'm currently using a Sony phone which does 24bit and has enough power for my 32ohm Sony Hi-res headphones. I also recently installed a 400gb micro SD card in it. I'm thinking by the time I fill up the 400gb and need a new phone there will probably be 1Tb micro SD and I'll just pick a new phone with good Hi-Res specs. I can't really imagine steering away from Poweramp and using two different devices.
  4. I'm gonna say my genre section is super clean...
  5. This would be cool if these categories existed. For now I have worked around this and added a "Lossless" genre for 16 bit and "Hi-Res" genre for 24bit to create my own categories. The meta data option in Poweramp shows up if they are Flac, 24bit and 96kHz. This works for now, but it would be better if it was a category like you requested.
  6. It's a huge waste of space and battery power to actually use WAV instead of FLAC. It's just a container file so it doesn't actually lose any of the Audio. It only compresses the dead space of the file that is not used. Think of a glass of water that is only half full. It basically shrinks the half that is empty so it takes up less space and it does not touch the space that actually has fluid. In this case the water would be the music data and the glass would be the FLAC. You can download a program called foobar for free, and open your WAV file in there and convert it to 24bit 96kHz flac in a matter of about 1-2 seconds. Because it doesn't actually convert or compress anything, it's compressing empty space. That is why it is "Lossless".
  7. It can but it crashes a lot, the UI is limited, the album artwork is tiny. If it showed the Poweramp UI it would be different. I use a wireless adapter pad so my USB port isn't accessible. UPNP is wireless.
  8. Bluetooth doesn't give me the ability mirror Poweramp on my head unit. Using BubbleUPNP, the app is installed on the head unit and phone and they are synced and identical. Same library, category structure and all artwork included. It's just not as good as the Poweramp app so I don't use it. I use Poweramp all day at work so I want to continue my playlist when I jump in the car. So it's a hassle to switch to a different app or a seperate Poweramp library built into the head unit. Right now I just mount my 5" phone on the dash and use the head unit for Bluetooth audio. It's unfortunate because I have a 10" android screen in the car that's unused because album art doesn't even transfer and all I can do is skip tracks and see a track title.
  9. Yeah I would love if I could install Poweramp on my car head unit and get the music from my phone like BubbleUPNP.
  10. I think the people that have been anticipating this feature (which is many) are prepared to retag their entire massive library and deal with any of the little quirks that come with it. This feature outweighs many other features greatly for certain people.
  11. I had this similar issue with my android head unit. I have to full rescan each time I start the car.
  12. Could you imagine if you went on Spotify and clicked on Genre and it listed EVERY SINGLE album in the database in alphabetical order. It would take you forever to browse just A. I mean my personal library is over 4000 albums currently. Browsing by Genre->Albums with that many albums renders this category useless on my device. It's quicker to just scroll through Artists to jump to the album. I will agree Poweramp is unmatched in how many sorting options it actually has. But... Poweramp along with every personal media player I've tried is completely missing a few of the most BASIC... let me stop there and use a couple of different words: STANDARD or COMMON sorting options there is. Let's be honest and not talk about Android or Streaming or Personal Media Player for a second. Let's look at any Discography all the way back to the 90's, what order do you see and what order do you expect to be able to browse if the list was interactive? Artists->Albums,Singles+EP's,Guest Appearances->Songs Albums->Artists->Songs Genre->Artists->Albums->Songs Years->Months>Albums->Songs Playlists That's the most basic lists since the beginning of any Digital or Interactive lists, and almost all of the streaming platforms have nailed it. Can you honestly say Poweramp or any other non-streaming media player has more than 2 of the 5 fully available? I know you're saying be thankful for all the great stuff you got, but it's like giving me a huge bowl of my favorite cereal with Bananas, strawberries, blueberries, with some sugar on top, and then saying "sorry no milk or spoon". I designed websites from 1997-2013 for Gold & Platinum selling Artists, so this is my opinion based on my experience.
  13. I think Poweramp is the best out there... But it's still lacking these basic essential features that streaming services already have. I'm truly amazed and disappointed that No android player can compare to how some streaming services sort music. No multiple artists support, no separating of albums, singles, ep, guest appearances, limited genre browsing, limited playlist creation capabilities. Obviously there are some cool features that the streaming services don't offer, but there's a huge trade off of the most basic features missing.
  14. I'm +1 for synced lyrics. Definitely wouldn't trust an app to find them for me.
