    Just wait for a hopeful new pro release, where the focus is on audio quality🤩

    Poweramp Build 814

    This is the problem. Album Artists: Albums are listed according to the tag 'Album Artist' and if it is empty, albums are listed in the 'Unknown artist' item. Fix: If the tag 'Album Artist' is empty for a normal artist album, the tag 'Artist' is used for the Album Artist. Albums by Artist: Albums are listed according to the tag 'Album', where a compilation album is shown multiple times for each 'Artist' tag in the album. Fix: If the 'Album Artist' is specified, ignore the 'Artist' tag and label it as 'Various' or blank, to have a compilation album only listed once. If list is sorted by artist, artist name is still the second line. The only way that is working for me, is to have both the 'Album Artist' tag and all the 'Artist' tags the same name, e.g. Various ... To display the artist, the 'Title' tag is set to Title/Artist, which is a problem in the Artist list. Hopping someday we can make our own lists.
  3. Maybe because they can be encoded with VBR instead of CBR, which is impossible to predict beforehand.
  4. Agree, but as long as one of the highest priorities is gapless playing, we will not see that. Hopping some day a Poweramp Pro will be released, where features are on audio quality (eg no sample change), configurable library lists, parametric equalizer, sound processing like FxSound, sound setting per audio output and album/playlist. My HTC has a fixed setting of 48kHz/16-bit, which can be changed in Poweramp, and have chosen 88kHz (24-bit)

    Craches when opening a list using tags - back to 795. Phone = HTC 10.

    Please make it possible to lock an EQ setting to an Album or Playlist, as many albums require altering the sound for optimal listening. This should not lead to problems, e.g. if the locked sound has to be altered, it must first be unlocked and possible locked again.

    Still major problems with Artist Album lists! Album Artists: Albums are listed according to the tag 'Album Artist' and if it is empty, albums are listed in the 'Unknown artist' item. Fix: If the tag 'Album Artist' is empty for a normal artist album, the tag 'Artist' is used for the Album Artist.

    My humble opinion is that Poweramp v3 now has so many features (bad or god), that it is impossible to get everything right at the moment. One thing that has my interest is the Settings->Audio->Output where there are numerous settings, but none that fulfill my requirements. E.g. my HTC 10 forces sampling to 48 kHz/24 bit, despite the source is 44.1 kHz/16 bit. If I use Hi-Res Output, and set sampling to 88 kHz for a (maybe) minor improvement in upsampling the standard 44.1 kHz format, Poweramp anyway forces downsampling a 96 kHz format to 88 kHz. Also equalizing lacks several features, where it seems like the focus is on having HiRes outputs where most audio files are ‘faked’ HiRes formats (this can be documented) Interesting to see V3 will focus on user interface, audio quality or themes.
  10. HTC 10 with verison 793 Standard and OpenSL fixed to 48kHz/16 bit Hi-Res fully supported.

    The Album Artists list only shows albums with the Album Artist tag filled in. Please add the option the use the Artist tag if the Album Artist tag is empty. Thanks

    Actually I had given up on the original Poweramp, as well as the beta versions, and instead purchased Neutron. Wasn't neither satisfied with Neutron, and gave the new beta Poweramp a last change, and hurried for a Neutron refund. The new Poweramp is by far the best sounding Android player and the interface is quite fancy - but ... The lists is not consistence, where the Artist uses rounded images and Album square images with overlaid text - I prefer square images with text below. Like others, text overlay on image is not an option, as well as duplicate images in the track list of the playing album, and font size is missing. Zooming of lists is a pleasure. Parametric Equalizer. The Tone controls have always been a mystery to me, as the bass and treble only can be increased. Also the new Reverb section is not an option for me. Therefore a parametric equalizer section would be very much appreciated, as it is much easier to control than a band equalizer. Most albums require small adjustment for bass and treble, to get the optimal sound experience, where parametric shelfs are by far the best way to do this. Below is my suggestion to such a parametric equalizer, where it replaces the Reverb section. Note the 'Lock to ...' where the setting can be locked to an album, playlist, record, etc. for each playing unit.
  13. For the new version please add 'Artist Albums´ to the Library list, to make compilation albums, multiple artists, etc, more clearer. Current and feature* selections: Artists -> Shows the artist and songs where the artist is included in the metatag 'Artist'. Albums by Artist -> Shows albums where the artist is included in the metatag ''Artist', and the headline is the album. *Artist Albums -> Shows albums where the artist is included in the metatag ''Album Artist', and the headline is the artist (if no 'Album Artist' then 'Artist' is used) Thanks
