  1. So no matter if the files are stored on my SD card or internal memory, no matter if they are old files that have been working fine on previous Poweramp v3 versions or if i just made them on my computer. I have set Poweramp to loop one track and that works fine with other files but not with ogg files. It plays them fine once. but then when it should play them again, it reports that it has failed to read the file in question. However if i select it manually or any other ogg file from the same folder, then the file plays fine once. then again when it should replay the file from the beginning, it says that it has failed to do so again. As i said this happens with all my ogg files (old and new) and from internal memory or from SD card. However luckily mp3 files and other files that i have tried so far seems to be working fine. If this had affected other file types as well, then i would have been forced to try older versions or another music players until this has been fixed. My phone is Nokia 8 on the latest stock 9.0 pie release, so at least it can't be caused by custom rom as this phone has never even been rooted so.

    Headset buttons not working in background

    Does this also happen with other music players like spotify as well? I had similar issues with 7.1.1 nougat on my Nokia 8 where hf buttons were working fine when the screen was on and I was doing other things like browsing Facebook. But soon as my screen went off, then only single click (play/pause) was working on every music player and I couldn't even answer incoming phone calls. However update to 8.0 beta fixed the problem and now I can control my music and answer incoming calls when my phone is in my pocket. So test it out with other music players and then report back how it behaved. Then we can narrow it down to be either something on your phone if it doesn't work in other players, but if it works in other players then it might be something on Poweramp. Other thing that might help you out is sony smartkey app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonymobile.extras.liveware.extension.smartkey It enables you to create a customized click commands for your hf buttons, and some phones and roms I have been able to fix these kinds of issues with this or other similar apps.

    Build 799 Bass is very distorted

    Have you been using the musicfx feature from the equalizer options? I have been noticing that when I plug in my headphones, I have to disable/enable musicfx few times until the playback starts to sound like it should. It happens immediately after I unplug and then plug my headphones, even if Poweramp is in front. So it is not something that only happens when Poweramp has been left in background or has been closed, but instead something that happens when you cycle your headphones in and out of the device. Just for a reference there is my phone model information and I use the built-in 3,55mm jack for my headphones.

    MusicFX doesn't work

    Happy to report that at least on my Nokia 8 this latest 802 update from play store has fixed the musicfx issue and now I can get into the musicfx settings with the long press shortcut. However my user interface has changed into English from the system default Finnish, up until the maybe version 796 or 797 the ui was in Finnish. However despite the fact that the ui has not been changed that much (if not all) between the few latest versions, the Finnish translation seems to be completely missing. Other than that the latest version seems to be working fine.

    MusicFX doesn't work

    Same issue has been in my Nokia 8 ever since the ui makeover happened. Previous betas had that feature working flawlessly, but ever since the ui changed that musicfx menu does not open up. At least it does "work" meaning that I can turn it on and off, but I can't tweak any settings for it. That feature works fine with spotify, meaning that I can open it through there, but it only effects music playback on spotify.
  6. As my title says the previously featured Finnish translation has been missing in the last two versions. Also that musicfx menu is still broken and does not open with the long press thing.
  7. So the actual musicfx feature works, but when I first plug my headphones in I have to go and toggle between enabled and disabled state. Unless despite the fact that the musicfx button is "on" I can hear that it is in fact off. Other issue is that what I described in the title. So when I go in to the equalizer window and swipe to the right and try to open the musicfx settings, the musicfx thing just crashes. I don't believe that the musicfx ui or anything like that is broken in my phone because spotify can open that thing just fine. However that doesn't effect the Poweramp portion of the musicfx, luckily I had made all of the necessary settings in the musicfx before the new ui refresh in the v3 beta broke it. So just to recap musicfx feature works, but only after I turn it off and on few times and the settings of the musicfx (long press) does not work anymore. However in spotify musicfx still works just fine. My phone is Nokia 8 on the 8.1 oreo September security patch and my Poweramp version is rc-build-797-play full version. And if it is any matter my music files are stored on the external SD card.
  8. Do you have any applications that modifies the behavior of the buttons like Sony smartkey or similar? How does other players behave for example spotify? To my Nokia 8 going from 8.1 August security patch to 8.1 September patch for some reason changed the behavior of the hf buttons. Before I needed to have that Sony smartkey app installed and running to get the buttons to respond when my screen was off and phone was in my pocket. However after I got that September patch I got no response from Poweramp or spotify when my phone was on my pocket and screen was off. I had to uninstall the Sony smartkey to get both of the apps to work again. I know that this may not be same as your issue expecially if you have not installed any system updates when Poweramp broke, but this may help to troubleshoot your problems. Just to say that I know your pain because on your shoes my main function of the phone would be crippled heavily and I might even consider going back to my old galaxy s5 just to get that functionality back.
  9. This is most likely not device specific issue as my Nokia 8 with the September security patched 8.1 has the same issue. This has been going on ever since the new layout was introduced. only thing keeping me from going back to the old 3.0 layout with working musicfx, is that the musicfx still "works" you just don't get to change settings for it. So if for some reason it got reseted I would have to get old 3.0 version or even 2.0 and set it back to how I like it to be, and use the Poweramp built in equalizer to fine tune the sound. So even though it "works" it should have been fixed few versions ago.

    MusicFx is not working in 792

    Same issue with my Nokia 8 128gb. Luckily it "works" for me meaning that I can turn it on and off, but long press does not open the musicfx settings. Other applications like spotify can however open it up so the issue is not in the musicfx application, however chances made in musicfx when opened from spotify does not apply to Poweramp. So as it is now, musicfx on Poweramp is nothing more than a on/off type of feature.
  11. This is most likely bug/issue with the android rom that your phone manufacturer has shipped to you. For example with android 7.1.1 nougat on my Nokia 8 had this exact same problem with both spotify and Poweramp. However after I got the first 8.0 oreo beta software to it, that issue got fixed in that release. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonymobile.extras.liveware.extension.smartkey This app might help you out with this problem as well. Best solution might be to bug the official forum of your phone manufacturer or try to contact them directly with email or something.

    MusicFX

    I'm only here to tell you that my Nokia 8 128gb TA-1004 on the latest official July 2018 8.1 oreo also suffers from this issue. Sadly I don't have solution for this other than downgrading to the previous version and wait for fixed version to arrive. Or keep using Poweramp with the musicfx without changing the settings of it, and only relying on the equalizer in the Poweramp itself. It sucks that I don't have a solution for this problem, but now only thing that we can do is to wait for the fixed version to arrive.
  13. After that the latest version brought us dark theme, theme wise I'm OK with it until 3rd party skins have been updated for v3. However musicfx is not working right at least not for me. I can turn it on and off and I can hear the difference so it is still working just fine. But the ui for the musicfx settings does not open up when I long press the button on the settings. Luckily it remembered the settings from before and I can tweak the audio settings just fine with Poweramp, but this is a bug that would be nice to get fixed before this would be marked as a stable release. Musicfx settings open up fine within spotify, but then it only works for spotify. My phone is Nokia 8 128gb TA-1004 with July security updates on top of the 8.1 oreo os.

    Poweramp alpha build-709

    First of all sorry for the frequent replies to this thread, but I found out what was causing the problem. It was that option under the headset settings on Poweramp. It was on the double /triple press option. Was it naive for me to assume that when I wanted the double click to next song feature to work, naturally I would select double click option. When I selected the single press (fast) option, there is no longer issues when I double click on the hf button when the screen is off. It goes to the next song like it should. If this was not a bug, then it would be a good idea to rethink the terms used for these options. It was just as confusing in my native language (Finnish), and if guy who has been playing around with different computers for the past 25 years can't understand them. Then maybe there is good place to rethink the term of that option.
