  1. Tags / Metadata Metadata is extra information about a song, stored as hidden computer-readable data within an audio file. This is independent of the filename or folder location - the data is stored inside the file as individual embedded 'tags'. Some tags are technical specs such as encoding methods and duration, while others contain things like the Title of each song or are used organise your music into various categories for easier viewing and access - such as Albums, Artists, Years, etc. Some commonly used tags are: Song Title [TIT2 / TITLE] Artist [TPE1 / ARTIST] Album Title [TALB / ALBUM] Album Artist [TPE2 / ALBUMARTIST] Genre [TCON / GENRE] Track Number [TRCK / TRACKNUMBER] Disc Number for multi-disc sets [TPOS / DISCNUMBER] Year [TYER / DATE] Composer [TCOM / COMPOSER] Lyrics (not synced) [USLT / LYRICS] Comment (not used by Poweramp, but can be displayed) [COMM / COMMENT] Length (ms) [TLEN] Replay Gain [TXXX:REPLAYGAIN_**** / REPLAYGAIN_****] Album Cover (image) [APIC / METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE] From build 899 onward, Poweramp can separate and sort songs using multiple names - e.g. "Under Pressure" could be listed as being by "David Bowie ; Queen" and it would be shown in the Artist listing for David Bowie and also for Queen. This feature can be used for Artists, Album Artists, Composers, and Genres (e.g. a genre could be listed as "New Wave ; Electronic ; New Romantic"). You can even define your own symbols or words to be used as separators via PA Settings > Library > Scanner, but semicolon ";" , slash "/" or double-slash "//" are common ones. You can also specify certain phrases that you never want to be split - e.g. "AC/DC". If you don't wish to use this feature, simply leave the relevant options blank. You can view any tags contained within a song file by long-pressing on the song title in a library list, or long-pressing on the cover artwork in the player screen, and selecting 'Info/Tags'. You can also edit some tags by tapping 'Edit Tags'. For more in-depth editing, or changing groups of file contents at the same time, it would be better to utilise a full-featured batch tagging program such as TagScanner or MP3Tag on a PC, or AutoTagger on Android. Technical note: MP3 files usually use the ID3 tagging format (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ID3) while FLAC files use the Vorbis system (see https://www.xiph.org/vorbis/doc/v-comment.html). Both methods contain broadly the same information but indexed slightly differently, as annotated above. APE is another, slightly less common, tagging method. Poweramp can read any of these tagging systems. Completely untagged files will be displayed using their filenames, and you can organise them by folder locations. What tags constitute an 'Album' An 'album' is merely a notional grouping of any songs within the Library that have the exact same Album and Album Artist tags - but which may still have different Artist tags. Should Album Artist tags be missing, Poweramp will fall back to trying to group songs into albums based on the Album and Artist tags instead - but often with mixed levels of success, as Artist names can vary track-by-track - such as featured artists, duets, compilations, etc. In these cases, it is vital that Album Artist tags are correctly assigned, using a common term such as "Various Artists", to ensure all the songs remain together. It's actually a good idea to always include an Album Artist tag anyway, even if the content happens to be the same as the track Artist. Poweramp will try to infer some other properties for an 'album' - such as the Year and Genre - but these concepts are based solely on looking at the constituent songs and picking a value from them. If those tags are not consistent throughout - e.g. if each track in a compilation album has a different Year value - then the overall value chosen may not be predictable. CUE sheets (and do I need them?) CUE sheets are plain text files (with the filename extension ".CUE") which contain extra information about songs - mostly just simple details like the filename, Title, Artist, Album, etc. They are detected and read automatically by Poweramp's music scanner. For more information on the CUE format, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cue_sheet_(computing) . They broadly work in two ways: CUE files often point to one very large disc image file - such as an entire ripped CD - and they serve to provide index points to determine which sections of the file need to be separated into individual songs. When Poweramp reads this sort of CUE file it creates a 'pseudo folder' which contains all of the individual songs, and it also places these songs inside their relevant Album, Artist, etc categories. This kind of CUE file is important and should always be copied along with the large audio file, otherwise you will only see one very big song rather than any individual tracks. If for some reason you would like to see those large overarching files though, you can enable Settings > Library > Lists > Show CUE Disc Image Files. Note: it is possible, although not common, for CUE data to be embedded inside FLAC audio files directly, rather than requiring a separate sidecar file. Sometimes CD ripping software generates multiple audio files, one for each song, but it still creates a reference CUE file which points to each of those audio files in turn. This type of CUE file is redundant, as the individual songs will already be scanned and added to Poweramp's Library anyway, based on their embedded tag data. It's probably better to delete this type of CUE file manually. If you never wish to use CUE sheets at all, but you don't want the hassle of deleting unnecessary files, you can prevent the scanner from checking them by disabling Settings > Library > Scanner > Parse CUE Files.
  2. An album artist's albums are currently sorted by alphabet. I think you should be able to change that to, for example, sorted by year. I'll attach a quick mockup.
  3. I think I already discussed this a bit but wasn't worded as well. I was wondering if you could provide an option to have the app load only embedded album covers for individual tracks rather than taking one cover from a track on the same album and using it for all the songs on the album.
  4. With disk and other storage space plentiful and cheap, I decided to switch to a lossless audio format for all of my future ripping and downloads, and picked FLAC. (You're welcome to knock my choice if you want, but that's not the reason for this note.) Background info: I'm ripping CDs on a Win 7 machine and uploading to a Samsung Galaxy S3 (for now; the point is to have a file format that I can keep around for years and be able to play on just about any machine, now and in future). The Galaxy S3 is the Poweramp machine that's giving me trouble. I'm running V2.0.9, build 534, in paid mode. I downloaded dBpoweramp to create the FLAC files, ripped a Vivaldi CD, and uploaded to the S3. Poweramp refused to recognize the album or tracks, even though it has no trouble recognizing MP3 albums and displaying them in its library as soon as I transfer them. However, when I located the files in a file browser on the S3 and clicked on a track, the file browser offered to let me open the track in Poweramp (and five other players, of course) so I did, and Poweramp played the track just fine. Also, when I clicked on the Poweramp menu and then on Info/Tags, Poweramp displayed full metadata including the album name that it refuses to bring into its library even after multiple scans and full rescans. After some experimenting around, I discovered that I could get Poweramp to bring my FLAC album into its library list by going to the Android application manager, deleting ALL of Poweramp's data, and re-building my library listing (not the audio files) from scratch. (No, Poweramp's re-scan did NOT work.) You might think that, with one FLAC album now in my library, I wouldn't have the same trouble bringing in another one, but No, a second album didn't incorporate into the library until I did the Android application-lobotomy trick again. So, I can now build and use a library of FLAC albums but only at the cost of re-setting all of my options by hand after every addition. Yucko. One last thing to note: I use the Windows file browser to drag-n-drop the album (directory) from the PC to the S3. When I transfer the MP3 album, it just goes, but when I transfer the FLAC album, it asks me if I want to convert all of the files since my phone won't play FLAC files. (Well, it wouldn't if I didn't have Poweramp, but the transfer facility is kind of dumb.) So I say No, Don't Convert and it (presumably) transfers all of the files intact. The Poweramp metadata display confirms that they're FLACs, but if the transfer facility is also doing something to set the album up for cataloguing, it would be happening for the MP3s but not for the FLACs. So - Have I discovered a bug, or did I overlook some simple setting that would let those FLAC albums slither into my library without getting hung up? Is anyone else out there using FLAC files with a Galaxy S3, with or without trouble? Suggestions appreciated. Thanks! -- Glimmersdad
  5. So, I started using the app and it's amazing, really one of the best app on the market, in particular I love the album art automatic and manual finder. I'm a perfectionist and I love seeing all my songs with the correct cover so I'd like to make the change permanent with the possibility to embed the art with the file. I'm not and expert so I'm asking if it's a possible feature for the future.
  6. Often when I want to play all my songs by an artist, I want to hear them in the order they were released. In other words, I want to hear the 1983 album: track 1, track 2, track 3... followed by the 1985 album: track 1, track 2, track 3... etc. Unfortunately, when I sort All Artist Songs by year, the tracks on each album are sorted alphabetically within each year (album). Listening to an album in alphabetical order is nowhere near as useful as the intended track order, especially for concept albums or albums where songs fade into each other. I think I remember there being a setting that advanced to the next category at the end of the current one, so I could enable that and just press the play button on the artist home page instead of the All Artist Songs page. But my typical behavior with playlists is to restart the playlist when I get to the end, so I don't want that setting enabled globally. It would just be a heck of a lot easier if there were a "sort by album year" option like what I'm describing.
  7. When going through albums backwards (i.e from album 2 to album 1), Poweramp jumps to the first song in the album rather than the last. Small issue but I'd love to have it resolved. Thanks in advance for any help.
  8. I love Poweramp so much! However, I'd like to have this setting be available in the future updates. It would be very nice to separate the album name from the artist-album label in the player UI. I am using the Alternative Layout style which moves the tags under the album art (which I appreciate) but I'd love to add a third line for the album name instead of merging the artist and album name in the second line. Also I would like to suggest a setting to adjust the alignment of these labels under the album art. I see that the default is aligned to the left, but I think it would look better to have center alignment setting be available. Thank you!
  9. Hi, during I play an audio stream, or Playlist I am listening alot of unheard songs, so i was thinking about a feature which could convert music tags into audio and announce it during song change. I can't every time check phone just to find the artist name. This feature would be really helpful for less phone usage
  10. Since I've started to switch using Poweramp, I've encountered a bothering issue that causes artwork to be heavily scaled down by a half of what the original artwork size was supposed to be, I didn't mind it at first. Until there are a couple of quality artworks that can toned down because of it. I've been trying to reach out other users in different online platforms but their response is almost always turn off your battery saver or it's an app issue that doesn't get fixed. I hope it gets a solution. I'm currently using an Asus Zenfone 4 Max on an Android 8.1 OS.
  11. Currently when you apply the album sorting the tracks of an album are sorted by title rather than track#. The same happens with the artist/album sorting. I think it would be better that when you sort a playlist by album or artist/album the sorting respects the track# of the songs. So an album that looks like this: 1. Charlie 2. Beta 3. Alpha Will look like that when sorted in a playlist instead of looking like this: 3. Alpha 2. Beta 1. Charlie
  12. Hey everyone, I would like to request a feature which may not be of much importance but could improve the app for people like me. Would it be possible to create the following option?: mass-edit the info/tags of a song. Reason 1: switch of mobile phone. Because when I switch the mobile phone, the edited tags won't stay and when I have to re-edit them again it would be a pain in the ass to get a cleaned up albumspace again. Reason 2: Editing tags of whole album which weren't handled properly. E.g. most of the timr when you download an album from youtube, the album-name, songtitle and artist is wrongly configured. In order to clean that up I usually go through every song and edit out. But coming to reason one... this is just way to cumbersome. Thanks in advance!
  13. Hi, This is regarding album art Embedding feature. This would be nice if you add this because whenever we switch phones or reinstall app, all album arts are gone. This feature is already on role in blackplayer etc. Also it is important to add option to embed already downloaded album art.
  14. It would be nice if you could change whole album info at once, for instance I had an album with the wrong year on it and there were 26 tracks so to change it you'd have to do each track individually. I remember you could do whole albums at a time on the old version so not sure why it's no longer available, unless it's there somewhere and I'm missing it? Thanks.
  15. I just had my balls busted in a different section of the forum pages for not putting this in feature requests, even though the point was that I thought that it had to have already been an existing feature. I am toast after those go 'rounds, so forgive me for just doing a copy/paste of my original post, even though it wasn't worded as a feature request. And if you want any justification for why, please just refer to the posts in that other section. Thanks. 1) This seems like it would be such a fundamental option, that I am guessing that I am missing something in the settings (there are a lot). If I go to an artist, I click on the "three dot" menu icon and what I would intuitively expect is the option to choose (or assign) a genre for the artist. A genre that would then override any inconsistencies down through their catalog of albums and songs (like when a band of one genre is the anomaly on a soundtrack dominated by another genre).  2) while I figure that the above option is just flipping a switch in my settings, this second (and third) part(s) are me wondering how something related to artist genre would work. For an example, if I have all BobMarley as reggae, what would happen if I imported Marley tracks from sources that have the songs/albums miscategorized as a different genre? Would they automatically be corrected when they are imported during the next rescan? Or would I have to go back and again assign reggae as the genre of Bob Marley? 3) Sticking with Marley, there are many "dub" versions of his songs and dub is a very distinct subgenre in reggae. So I would manually add a secondary (sub) genre, so it would be entered as:"reggae//dub" So let's say that I started with 2 Bob Marley albums and I set Marley's artist genre to reggae and then add dub to ~10% of the song genres on each album. What would happen to those 10% of songs that were reading as "reggae//dub" if a few months later I realized that I had imported Marley tracks from various sources that had incorrect genres assigned, which may (depending on the answer to question 2) require me to run the artist genre again? Would it change all reggae//dub tracks to simply "reggae," or would it recognize that these songs already have the correct genre (just with an additional genre added)? Sorry if this isn't clear, I can explain further, if needed. I have worked most of my life in music, which later evolved into integrity analysis of databases as the industry shifted on line. Poweramp seems like a perfect player for me, but I just need to figure out some of the nuances of it's various functions. Peace,  Ras
  16. Album art should be fit if they're too large. 1280×1750. Doesn't fit fully.
  17. Whenever I have an album name with the format *.* Poweramp seems to overwrite the artist name with this same tag. Example. Correct tag: Artist: Singer Person / Album: awesome.com will display on Poweramp as: Artist: awesome.com / Album: awesome.com. I do not have this issue on any other player. Sorry if this issue has been brought up, but when I searched the forum it was difficult to find and specify.
  18. Would it be possible to request for a simple sort option. I just wanted my music to play continuously like an album while on a playlist. A way that an album should play like. From Album > artist > track no. (not by title). There is currently no way to do this. I like my music to play from track number rather than from the title alphabetically. Thanks
  19. I've noticed that some albums would have many different album arts within the album. Is it possible to have 1 standard art for the entire album? Also some albums are split, even though the tags have the same album name.
  20. Hey there, Everything's been pretty good so far with v3 for me. The only thing I'm having issues with is the "By year" list option inside of a folder. On v2, I always had it set that way, and it would have the songs for the album in the order they originally appeared on the album itself. Now with v3, it lists all the songs in alphabetical order per year. It gets even more confusing when a band has had multiple releases in a year. I've been using the "By album" list option in the meantime, but I prefer to have the albums in chronological order of release, which it does not. At least it can give me the tracks in the order that they appear on the album. I couldn't seem to find any fix in the settings, so if anyone could help out, it would be most appreciated.
