  1. Hi, I've submitted the bug via Google Forms. When checking the Info/Tags of an Ogg Opus file during its playback, the track gain is shown at a constant +5 dB regardless of the file. Is this a display bug? Does Poweramp use the Replaygain tag or the Opus gain tag, or prioritises one of them over the other (but of course using the respective reference level)? V3 build 823, Oreo 8.0.0, Asus Zenfone 3 ZE552KL
  2. There's an option to disable immediate play after enqueue.
  3. Play Store shows the last updated date and last updated version. People buy the app with their eyes open. I bought mine YEARS ago, paid for it because of what I knew it would do for me that time. That was Android Lollipop or KitKat. I didn't "stupidly" or "blindly" or "naively" put money down on a v2 thinking that I would ever get a v3. So speak for yourself only. I gave Max money for a fully-featured, still best-in-class v2 Poweramp, which still works, which is still better than most other players out there. It shows just how few developers have the vision to execute correctly. They release a fancy-looking player, sure, but it doesn't feel right. Or they release the correct features, but those features don't work in an intuitive manner. I may sound masochistic, but even if he releases it 10 years later for Android Zucchini, I know the player will be perfect for its moment the way v2 was and still is. I know one other developer with that vision: Peter Pawlowski of Foobar2000 (and Winamp plugin fame) and that's the player I use on my desktop. Man up, stop whining, and spend more time typing positive things. For myself I plan to enjoy the holiday of National Day today.
  4. 1) Max is developing. 2) Project is not closed. 3) v3 beta is not the monetised product. v2 is, and is feature-complete (It has what its descriptions claim). 4) Builds 709 and 790 are information. On your phone. You're probably using one of them right now. Not only seeing is believing, but USING is believing. Go back to v2 first, then come and continue pushing these vacuous claims.
  5. No point going to the other extreme; Andrew isn't like that anyway. In the big scheme of things, boys will just clamour for their toys, and want their toys NOW. Whereas real men will understand two things: 1) What they already have (v2) does what they want; any impatience for new things is a sickness called upgrade-itis. 2) In the real world software projects get re-prioritized in certain periods. As long as it is not life-threatening, and does not steal investors' money, understanding it and learning to live with it is what makes a boy become a man.
  6. That is because previous bunch of users voted for Material Design. All the fancy visual stuff. Which the current bunch of users are whining about. All the time was spent on getting the visuals right or else there would be even more whining.
  7. There is an option for this in v2. Next to the option for increasing buffer size.
  8. You're on to something. The clicks are more frequent with it enabled. Still not click free with it disabled. I'm open to the possibility of it being a bug with Android's OpenSL HD. However, on a previous version of Poweramp and Android, the problem was entirely resolved by raising playback thread priority.
  9. Tried already, still clicks. Need the option to raise process priority if it isn't already at the level below real-time.
  10. For me on Zenfone 3 552KL, I get short clicks. They annoy but I quickly forget them because still enjoying the different sound signature.
  11. The last poll really screwed up the dev schedule, so, voted for what is truly necessary. Core functions! And of course high res output next. If I want dark theme I turn the screen off. Android 8 already gives me the middle finger with the totally undimmable dropdown. I bought anti blue light glasses partially because of it.
  12. It's 2018 and the best is still Poweramp. That says something about how lacking of a complete vision the other Android Music Player devs have (except GoneMAD, maybe). I don't get why Max's slowness gets all the hate. Does Neutron get aggressive and passive-aggressive criticism from users regarding its UI? Does BlackPlayer get hate for still only being second best to Poweramp? Did the good tunes stop playing between v2 and v3 beta preview? v2 is still number 1, and v3 is going to take over the number 1 position. So please just get off your soapbox, and think hard about even whether your post is relevant in this particular thread.
