  1. I've been having this problem as well. I've tried to replicate the issue but haven't had much luck getting it to happen consistently. What I've noticed is that usually it happens after I leave the songs paused for some time. For exemple, when i'm at work, someone calls me, I pause it, and when I come back to it like 15~20 min latter the song is registered twice, even if I've listen to less than half of the song. There are times where it doesn't duplicate even after long pauses. And then there are times that even without pause it register more than one time, for no reason at all.
  2. Ok this seems to be the problem then. I copied the tags to ID3 and it worked. All my info (track, album and artist name for example) are in the ID3v2 tags, except for the replay gain info, so since PA found the ID3v2 tags it stopped looking and the APEv2 tags were not read. Thanks for the quick answer!
  3. Which replay gain tags does Poweramp look at? I recently discovered I was doing something wrong with MP3Gain. I used to do analysis + gain, thinking that analysis was just to come up with the numbers and applying gain would write the tags, but know I know that analysis does write the tags and that applying gain actually modifies the files (which I don't want). So in order to test that, i picked the same song and produced 4 versions: 1. a raw one, 2. one with only the tags, 3. one with the gain change without the tags, 4. and one with gain change and tags. I expected that both 1 and 2, and 3 and 4 would sound the same with RG off (with the latter two being quieter) and that with RG on 1 would be the loudest, 4 the quietest, and 2 and 3 sounding the same in the middle. When I tested them on my PC with MusicBee everything worked out nicely (tho it seems it does some counter gain as 3 and 4 sounded the same with RG on). However when I tried it on Poweramp, it sounds the same as if RG was off. I tried both Album and Track gains, and both Apply Gain and Apply Gain/prevent clipping, as well as re-scanning after changing to Apply gain. In the case of MP3Gain it writes 4 APEv2 tags, REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_GAIN, REPLAYGAIN_ALBUM_PEAK, REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN, REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_PEAK. I'm wondering if these are the tags Poweramp looks at or not, that may be the cause of it not working?
