  1. I can confirm that thing MotleyG said does happen, it actually always happened, but for me it was such a small thing and since it would go away right after any in app screen change I never actually reported it But yeah it always happened since V3 800+ builds on my LG G7, it happened while on Oreo and now on Pie Again, for me it always were such a small thing I never bothered with, just confirming it indeed happen...
  2. LG G7 here, Poweramp b857 and 858. Finally got the Pie version of android, but... Until two days ago when I was on Oreo, everything was working fine. Now on Pie, multiples of 44.1kHz doesn't work anymore. 88.2, 176.4, 352.8 and actually 384kHz too stopped as well, when they're selected there's just no sound. Apparently it does work with DVC off but the volume is just far too low. I'm talking about 100% volume without DVC is like 10% with it, and it just can't power my headphones. I've always heard about problems with hi-res audio and Android Pie, but I couldn't really find much about this matter concerning the G7 somehow. Is there a workaround for this or I'll be stuck with 48, 96 and 192 samplerates now? I always prefer to have the samplerate as the closest multiple of the song samplerate, so the odd multiples are actually a thing for me as someone with lots of DSDs, plus I do have some files that are native 88.2k. Don't ask, they just exist and there's who use them. Other than that things are working fine as far as audio quality and player functions/stability just as it was before. The only thing is really with the weird samplerates...
  3. Damm what a difference a color can make, that looks amazing, and this combination of colors is very easy for the eyes Thanks for considering my suggestion, this looks absolutely wonderful even so it already did before. I found it that even with all the text using the accent color looks better now Also the new alternative accent colors looks nice as well, some of them look crazy with the full dark background, you're doing a fantastic work Same, sorry for not noticing your tag before as that message was from like a week ago XD
  4. I actually had thought about that but for some reason I didn't did it at that time, lol What I was talking about could be something like #F2D1B3 for accent and #332013 for background more or less, these colors look interesting together doesn't?
  5. Spent the last 50 minutes changing and looking at the settings, there's endless combinations and they all look very nice, that is some amazing work there. I got the Luminous Dark, but I may get the White version someday as well. Using on a LG G7 on stock 8.0.0 and haven't seen any problem, bug or strange behavior so far (b853 of PA). Really nice looking and working perfectly! Forgive me just arriving and already dropping suggestions, but, an idea for some colors: a cream white, like a super light brown for accent color. Imagine placing just some drops of coffee on a small cup of milk. And for background, a matching but very dark, deep cinnamon brown. Might be an interesting addiction to the color collection (that is already amazing)!
  6. Well I don't know if the skill will really get updates anymore (I hope so), but if it does, other than that upper buttons overlapping the album art thing, there's the streaming indicator that got introduced in the build 850 or 851 of Poweramp. It actually gets kinda lost when using the skin. Maybe move it to the center of the screen? Under the audio metadata would look nice in my opinion. There's too maybe a way to do some optimizing on the seekbar when on streaming, since streaming is, well, endless...
  7. The bug with "edit tags" button is gone, working fine again, but, that cue split file problem seems to be worse now Now not just the length appear as -:-- but the music doesn't change. You can go back and select any music of the album as much times as you want, the player will just keep playing the one that was playing before (the first selected) until you press >>| or you select a file from another album, lol
  8. LG G7 on stock 8.0.0 ROM without any kind of modifications nor root. On Build 850 The two recently mentioned bugs happens here as well. Apparently it really happens just with cue split tracks Consistently happening with different formats, just a straight up crash as soon as the edit tags button is pressed
  9. That is also the reason I have the folder with the (artist name - album name) inside the dedicated artist folder, that looks kinda strange I know But I kind of keep jumping back and forth between the folder hierarchy and the "one root folder with all the album folders" all folders mode because of that... Little thing that picks on me more than it should indeed, but that sounds like a decent feature for other users as well
  10. Hi, that's a thing I didn't needed that much in the past but since I started using folder hierarchy, it's bothering me quite a bit It's basically, some kind of memory for the list view mode on the last level of said folders, the actual music ones. I like to use the list view mode as on the first picture when on folders to have a clear view of the album art, but once I pick what album I'll be listening to, I would like more to see the track names, so something like on the second picture. But seems like Poweramp uses just one list mode for all the folders in hierarchy style. When you just have folders separately named and see on the all folders options this memory kind of works and you can have one list view style for the root folder (with all the others on it showing the big nice album art) and when you get into the folder you want you can have the smaller album art but longer text style for the audio files itself. Why wouldn't this work on folder hierarchy? Different levels of folders would confuse it maybe? Once you change the style in any of the screens the whole folder hierarchy mode becomes as the selected list style (it was all like the first picture, then I got into a folder and changed, now everything looks like the second picture)
  11. Thanks for sending the screens, it actually helped me to decide and I bought it. It really does look as cool as I was expecting and I don't really use the bugged buttons (at least not a lot) so switched them off. Cool stuff @Ducktamine The dark themes are amazing with the available accent colors as well, but since I'm on an IPS screen the white is it's strong point XD
  12. I actually like this at the point I'm willing to get it even bugged, if isn't a problem could you please share a screenshot of the main player screen, how it is with the skin right now? Would be nice if it's two pictures, one with the buttons enabled and one with them off My phone has a really long screen so my main concern now is the larger gap that appears below between the seekbar and audio info...
  13. So, is this still happening on the most recent Poweramp version until now? Build 844... I kinda want to get this but that bug would make me uncomfortable all the time, lol
  14. I actually did it by clicking on max profile and going on the mail icon, my bad I didn't thought it would made much difference I'll send it properly later, lol
  15. Hi @maxmp, Sorry for poking you but I actually sent a link with a few test tracks some days ago for you to see about that length behavior, I sent it through this site (by clicking on your username and on the mail icon that exists on your profile homepage) Just confirming if you got it since I haven't seen any talk about that...
  16. For now I've re-encoded the files as flac and the thing with the length time is gone, so I'll probably stay with this for a while longer (I prefer Tak over flac for some files as it has better compression, a few megabytes here and there group up to form almost a gigabyte after a certain point) and wavpack to compress DSD and 32bit files. Is something wrong with my encoder? I use foobar2k with the command line version of Tak 2.3.0 and wavpack 5.1.0 to do those files and this only seems to happen on Poweramp... I noticed that this seems to happen only with hi-res files, the CD quality ones seems to be unaffected. I'll make some and upload somewhere so you can check it, but this will probably take some days since my upload rates are abysmally low so I'll wait until I go to somewhere with better connection speeds
  17. Just noticed something with the album art, after this update for some reason all my files that had embedded cue sheet, although it shows album art on the now playing and on the music list, on the folders list they don't show any picture. I've seen it earlier but thought I would just need to select some pictures again but apparently nothing I try to do solve it. The files affected are single files that has embedded cue sheet on them, they're on my music folder inside any subfolder, as they have their own structure. But I too noticed some non cue split files on folders that has this same behavior The folder list just doesn't show some pictures anymore. Here's two sample pictures. [Edit] There's also a thing where some songs show incorrect length info, I don't know why but that is a persistent problem for me with wavpack files that has DSD streams or files with cue sheet. That doesn't really do any harm but yeah it still happens... It's possible to see it ok de first picture on last music. It definitely doesn't has 33min as even the 3 music's together wouldn't reach that.
  18. LG G7 on Stock 8.0.0 ROM, I too am having the problem that as soon as I hit the volume button the app crash, 100% of the times...
  19. It probably has some kind of replay Gain or other kind of pre amp speficially for DSD maybe. I do have a few albums that has replay Gain info and on my PC, they play with same loudness as others on aimp but on foobar I need to turn on the replay Gain for everything, which actually reduces the volume of other things a little and boost the ones that need until they match. On Poweramp they actually play fine as well, I think I have replay Gain by album activated. I indeed never had problems with visualizations since the 64bit builds started, and I don't remember seeing people talking about this. I use just the HD slider, but even with crop aspect nothing changes on performance. Sometimes I go through visualizations when I'm bored and never had problems with any, so I probably can't help with that. Maybe doing a clean install of your Poweramp? Or deactivating any kind of battery treatment for Poweramp (depending of the device it can kill the Poweramp process or slow it down to save battery and so on)? You probably should poke Andre or Max for this one
  20. That's normal, there's a lot of DSD files and even PCM formats when it's on rates like 192k and up that are like this. I don't think I can explain but yeah it happens. To level the volume you probably should try using that thing called Replay Gain (or RG for short). I'm not sure of the proceedings since I don't use it but I know programs like foobar2000 and aimp for PC has a replay gain feature that scans and apply the tag for it. The visualizations has some settings, maybe try the strict rendering option, or trying switching the crop aspect. There's the HD switch as well that you can try activating and deactivating for testing. I never had problems with the visualizations on 64bit builds so I'm saying just some things to try and see if something changes.
  21. Hey, it's me again! This time I'm with what might be a real bug But the thing is, that's actually a very cool bug, lol Just play a music, select a visualization and keep the visualization option on "Fade Controls", now just wait for the controls and album art to fade and click on where the album art would be. Now you'll have a list with a dynamic background. Although that's a bug, it's actually very interesting, lol. For me this just happens on the first level tho, if I go back one folder by swiping left or right, it goes back to the normal behavior. LG G7, Stock LG UI ROM, Android 8.0.0, No root nor any modifications. Poweramp V3 build 839
  22. The other thing I've noticed is actually for a long time already, not exclusive to this build but since Poweramp got support for wavepack5. It's just a strange behavior with the music length, it doesn't affect anything with the exception of that feature that remembers where you stopped on a long file, used for podcasts. So, for example, the audio time is 4m09s, but if you skipped to another track on the 1m mark, when you get back it will start from where you stopped. Even tho this feature is settled for 30min+ files for me. But other than this and the weird time stamp, everything play and work fine. Oh also, this just happens on the music library, when you play the file, the now playing screen shows it correctly and seems to happen at random. Happens more time than not and it seems to pick a specific file to do this... I have other wavpack files that never happened and others that on each build they cycle between happening or not. Already tried changing the name and tags, re encoding them, changing the source file and even the encoder, it simply doesn't change at all. The files in which this is most likely to happen is wavpack files with DSD streams on it.
  23. Yo, almost everything seems to be working fine so far, and the equalizer/tone values are very helpful now, I'll redo my equalizer settings later to get more precision But there's two things I noticed that seems weird. One is, when you click on the equalizer button, from the bottom navbar, the animation is fine but when you go back to the now playing screen, from the equalizer screen, the transition is very sharp The blurred background simply pops in without any animation at all as soon as you click the button to go back, but the rest of the UI do the animation. It didn't happened on previous builds. This is 100% reproducible as it always happen. Video included. It's not a player breaking feature, but maybe it weren't supposed to act this way? I mean, the older builds the blurred background had a fade in animation as well... I'll say the other one on another post to not make this yet longer LG G7, Stock LG UI ROM, Android 8.0.0, Poweramp V3 build 839
  24. I couldn't had said it better. That's a good point, although I don't use streaming services for movies and things like this, I always listen to people talking about things they like and aren't available anymore. And about the purchased point, that's a dangerous word. "Purchased", as it is not really yours and it's not on your hands. It's almost like "you think you purchased but it's still in our domains and we can do whatever we want with it". Again, I couldn't had said that better. And there's yet more, with the passing of the years, sometimes it's really nice to find that movie or that disc you once loved or had good memories about it. I have myself for example, some CDs from when I was a child and I remember listening them with my mother, and although I can find them digitally, it's just not the same thing... There's some emotional value attached to them as well. And as you said, well, it's ours, there's no expiring date, there's no risk of "the service stopping", there's no additional fees, and if taken good care of, it will last for another couple of decades. For me watching it from outside is even kinda funny, but yeah indeed, that's ridiculous. Now you need to install X apps, pay X different services (that do the same thing but has different names) because each piece of media you want is in one of them, that's annoying as hell. I can't even imagine if I were dependant of those services to manage my media as I have quite a few terabytes of. Or maybe not, it could be even easier, I mean, I can't find almost anything I have on those services anyway. Well, back on tracks, yeah nothing as good as having your media (the real "your", things that are on your domain without depending of a subscription) organized on a single player. That's one of the main reasons I'm so linked to Poweramp. The wide range of supported formats, the astonishing playback quality and the nice UI (let's be honest, the UI makes a big difference for everyday use), it's literally one app for all audio needs (non streaming audio obviously). People fill their phones with random stuff (maybe they even have SD card slot but is not being used) and feel completely ok, but downloading music? Oh hell no who does that? Let's leave it for subscription services to deal with, I just want to click one button and have access to "million of albums" in which I'll not listen once in my life. Oh also, they never have problems with internet connection, they'll have everything working perfectly always. Guaranteed.
  25. I can really relate to that, it's just like me. As we have this problem here with connection speeds, the quality of streaming is just so bad that I prefer downloading my media to watch/listen it. But even when I go to somewhere with good connection speeds, it just isn't as good as downloaded media, period. Principally video, I never had seen any piece of video from any streaming service that weren't bitstarving at some point, and holy moly how that blocky mess makes me uncomfortable even if it's just for some seconds... I can also second this, I have quite a library on my local storages and I carry what I like the most on my phone SD card, occasionally switching some albums for others. It would be really nice to be able to listen them directly from a NAS while at home without losing the quality and without burning internet connection with rocket fuel, but yeah SD cards exist for a reason. It's not like I'm some kind of "people against streaming" ambassador but, yeah it just isn't good enough for me, and looks like I'm not the only one that thinks like this 😄
