  1. Hi; I have been running Poweramp V3 with wired headphones on my LG Fiesta 2 Android 7. Everything functions as expected. Now, I'm considering a pair of wireless buds, and just wanted to make sure that the Poweramp EQ will still function with the Bluetooth buds. Thanks for your help Ultrarunner
  2. Thanks. I guess that was something inherent in those (ancient) devices...
  3. Hey guys; I've got the latest ver of PA on an LG Fiesta 2 Android 7 phone. I have been using the EQ (set to Rock, then tweaking a bit and saving a custom preset), but recall reading that some apps drain more power when the EQ is turned on. I think this goes way back to when I listened to an iPod (4th get and Nano). So I used to EQ all of my tunes on my PC and save them as .mp3 for uploading to the phone. Is this still true for the latest Poweramp? Thanks Ultrarunner
  4. Perhaps Google (or Apple) will support something like this, but I'm certain it will work only with their branded player. I suppose that if Poweramp had macros, one might be able to start a macro by voice. In any case, it's still a timesaver to be able to tell my phone to play a specific song, or a song by an artist using voice commands. Only thing there, is that, despite not having any default music player (I am unable to set Poweramp as default for some reason), I need to tell Google that I want to play the song in Poweramp. I did attempt to set up PA as default, but, in Android 7
  5. Hello; Is there a method to use Android 7 voice commands to cause Poweramp to cue a list of songs I give it by voice? This would be instead of pulling up the list of songs, long press and hitting cue. Then, once the songs have been cued, to play that cue using voice commands? I am not using Android Auto - just have the headphones (without controls). I am able to get Poweramp to play a single song, or a random song by a specific artist using Google voice commands, but it does not appear that I can do more than that. BTW, I notice that after I command Google to play a song in
  6. Hi; I'm curious to know what the odds are that, when I have shuffle all songs enabled, that any song will be repeated within a specified time period. Also, does rating songs affect the chance that a song will play in shuffle all?
  7. I thought it might be helpful for me to upload my PA settings here. When I selected to Export settings, PA stated that the file would be saved here: /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/last.Poweramp-settings checking the folder, I get only as far as /storage/emulated, but the folder is empty. I have enabled 'show hidden files' on ES File Explorer Pro. Just for curiosity, I then attempted to import settings. PA indicated that it had loaded the settings. It stated that it was going to restart, but I don't know if that actually happened.
  8. Right. I am looking at my Android system settings.
  9. Well, the fact that I must change to another track after pausing a long track in order to have the long track's position recorded in permanent memory - so that position is returned to after rebooting - is indeed associated only with long tracks, and effective only when Per Track Progress is enabled.
  10. The problem is not a specific file. I first experienced it while playing a 2+ hour track I created in Reaper from songs on my HDD. This track shows in PA and in MusicBee (on my PC) as a single track. Then, after I decided I wanted to upload a long track to the forum, I created another long track (20 minutes) in Reaper from songs in public domain. I uploaded an .mp3 version of that track. Both the 2 hour and the 20 minute tracks exhibit the same behavior in PA, which is as described in earlier posts here. I even tried tagging the song as a podcast, thinking perhaps (on the outside chance)
  11. Nope. When I play a 'short' song (which is shorter than the minimum set for 'Track Duration for Per Track Progress'), play returns to 0:00 after a reboot. This is after hitting pause while playing, closing PA, and rebooting.
  12. Yes. It will return to the 30:00 minute position after rebooting, rather than the later position. So I guess the feature to save track progress on long tracks applies only to changing to another track, and not rebooting the phone. Saving while rebooting is probably something that should be handled by Android. So, I will just have to remember to change to another track just prior to shutting down the phone if I want to return to the current position in the long track. Not a problem - just that I need to remember to do this. Another option would be to leave my phone powered on all the t
  13. In my experience with PA V3 build 828, the 'Store/Restore Per Track Progress' feature will not function as expected if you restart or shut down and power up your phone. Refer to this thread for details on my issue: What I found is this: In order for PA to remember track progress when returning to a long track - after having listened to another track - you must indeed pause the long track and listen to another track. If you simply pause the long track, then close PA (or not) and restart your phone, it will return to the beginning of the long track. ** keep reading this post for clar
  14. I have finally shed some light on what is happening here: The play position WILL RESTORE position on a long track if I am playing that (long) track, and then SELECT ANOTHER TRACK to play, and then RETURN TO THE LONG TRACK. It will then restart playing the long track from where it was when I left it to select another track. It will do this even if I shut down or restart the phone between playing the other track and returning to the long track. In addition: After the phone has been shut down or restarted, the play position on the long track will always return to where it was when I paused
  15. I moved the long track into the default music folder on internal storage. Still will not return to last played position after phone restart. I'm now looking into file tags. Is there anything anyone can tell me about tags? Such as what the tags would be for a podcast - which I would assume you want to be able to return to last played position. The only other thing I can think of is that Poweramp does not support returning to last played position when the phone is turned off or restarted. That, or something with Android v7 that is wiping that particular byte(s) of storage when it is re
