    Poweramp Build 838

    Can somebody explain the idea of the new Album Artist... . I flicked it on and off but didn't tumble to its functionality

    Poweramp Build 836

    Yes I know, that's what I meant a metadata line.

    Thanks for fix of the Samsung Pie Hi-Res. Can you explain how it works with Samsung bit upscaling, because before PA (before the Pie update broke hires) displayed the 24 bit in audio output string in the track info

    Seperate multiple artists in one song

    v836 it's still not supported

    Poweramp Upsampling to 48 KHZ

    Or technically speaking a 44,1 khz oscillator/tone generator

    Poweramp Build 829

    Generally yes. It's DVC which eliminates all additional manufacturer sound effects. However manufacturer updates can derange its work, like it's on the v826 with Samsung
  8. Feature requests should be posted in the corresponding thread. Plus such feature doesn't have any sense as the hardware will convert it to 48kHz anyway.

    Problem with Album Arts (Big Library)

    In Music Bee cover art is displayed

    What is tone and limit for?

    Except RG I don't recall anything. You can turn DVC it's far more better, but you'll lose factory made effects, if they're important for you. For me yes. Also you can change sample rate in order to optimize hardware's work to 48 and its multiples or to 44.1.and its multiples. Also you can turn off all transitions, crossfades etc.In fact most of the options are a matter of taste, hardware limitations etc. And the last two are more tweaks than a decisive improvement

    Music crashes in Samsung S9+ Pie

    It won't help in Note 9 and the same generation device because there is no separate switch for UHQ upscaler.

    Galaxy s10+ exynos version, Hi-res no work

    Some walkarounds which work on my Note 9

    Poweramp Build 823

    UPD. Another walkaround Hi-Res, No DVC, MusicFX on, but with 16/44.1. But in fact FX doesn't work complettely in both cases or at least the PA doesn't show anymore 16 to 24 bit conversion. However if during playback I change to 16/48 the player automatically will change the output to OpenSL ES and the error message pops again.

    Maybe the last sentence was not clear, sorry. In V2 limiter really decreased clipping, but RG tags did it far more better. In the current version right now I didn't manage to catch clipping both with limiter or RG turned off while listening to a couple of tracks. Although it's just matter of finding an appropraite track. Plus the whole clipping thing is depend on decoding process that's why it's considered that floating point players are better. Though I don't remember if the current PA has this. I forgot It really has DSP float.

    What is tone and limit for?

    It's an instrument of volume normalization, and in most cases it makes music lower. hat's why tags can be in negative numbers. So the normalization means an equal target volume for differrent tracks and albums. But another implication if its use is the elimination of soft clipping but this is relevant only to lossy files which don't contained an original audio signal and thus every player decodes it with approximations. This approximate decoding can cause clipping. As for me I didn't test it on the current PA, but v2 with limiter had the clipping. PC software players foobar, MusicBee, Aimp have RG to prevent clippping. However the use of RG can cause clipping if you manually increase volume. But usually reasonable man will tick "apply RG preventing clipping according to peak" RG does the following: 1. Prevent clipping (perform peak normalization to 0 dBFS of those tracks / albums that have level of the peak sample higher than one). 2. Perform a gain by a certain amount (in dB). In this case, a preliminary analysis of the tracks is not required. 3. Perform a track / album gain to a predetermined average perceived volume (the default target is 89 dB, but it can be increased / decreased within +/- 20dB). 4. Perform amplification of the track / album to a predetermined average perceived volume and, if as a result, the peak sample level is out of tolerance, adjust the level to 0 dBFS (full scale).
