  1. Hello, I'd like to ask for a problem fix. I have couple of albums that have the same name and Poweramp seems to not differ them well. For example, Saxon's "Sacrifice" was released in 2013 (that's what metadata in audio files says) and Motörhead's "Sacrifice" was released in 1995. However, when looking at both bands' catalogues in "Artist" category, Motörhead's album appears way later than it should've been (I'm using release date order), and both album share the same covers. It also happens to different artists (Halford's/Venom's "Resurrection" for example). Is that something the app's creator could look into?
  2. I have under Settings -> Library -> Lists, Show Track Number in the meta - relevant categories and Show Disc enabled. For any vinyl rips in my collection, I've decided upon using the disc metadata for vinyl side A, B, C, etc., and track # metadata for the track order on that disc/side. For example, when viewing track #2 from disc #3's metadata line I see: ♪ 2/3 | 4:13 | flac | 24 bit Would it not be possible to give the disc metadata its own icon? This is somewhat unclear visually. Is it track 2 of 3? Is it track 2 disc 3? Is it track 3 disc 2? Even when I change my settings to Show Track Number as Separate number - relevant categories, the disc metadata shown in the line is still granted a ♪ (8th note, grace note, whatever you want to call it) which IMHO is not appropriate for indicating a "disc". There are unicode characters for an optical disc, such as that shown here (1F5B8) If this was used, the example metadata line would be like: ♪ 2 | 🖸 3 | 4:13 | flac | 24 bit Which more clearly indicates all I need to know, without confusion.
  3. 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. It's a good idea to avoid using commas though, because of band names like "Earth, Wind & Fire", "Emerson, Lake & Palmer", etc. 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 too 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 separate sidecar files. 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.
  4. Is there anyway yall could add producer tags in metadata? I've been using the composer tag to substitute but just wondering if it's possible to have a producer tag in Metadata in the future.
  5. Poweramp version: build-893-arm32-play [893002-ecc5e107], Full Version, 32 bit (activator build-302) Device model: LG Stylus 3 (LGE M400-MT) Android version: 7.0, build number NRD90U, kernel 3.18.35, security patch level February 1, 2017 Steps to reproduce: 1. Download the following file (uploaded for bug reproduction): https://anonfiles.com/7bd8P8a2r2/01_Becherovka_flac 2. Load the original file into Poweramp. Metadata and album art should be present. 3. Convert the file using the following command (done locally with Ubuntu's ffmpeg installed from official apt repository): ffmpeg -i '01 Becherovka.flac' -q 0 -map_metadata 0 -id3v2_version 3 '01 Bechevrovka.mp3' 4. Load the converted file into Poweramp. Metadata and album art should not be present. Verifying the file with ffprobe will return identical metadata as the original, as well as album art. Additional information: + Converting with the following command (effectively removing album art) will have Poweramp parsing metadata as normal: ffmpeg -i '01 Becherovka.flac' -q 0 -map_metadata 0 -id3v2_version 3 -vn '01 Becherovka.mp3' + Moving the files around the device does not help. + Embedded album art is 10079790 bytes (sha256sum returns d5cae6299b6ec163287776218d181ea24251d9b427627f4f2ae0c3ea77632ea6), can be extracted with: ffmpeg -i '01 Becherovka.flac' -an -vcodec copy out.jpg
  6. I listen to rap music and most of my music is in the form of mixtapes. Many of which have a DJ and quite a few have multiple DJs. As there isn't a "Disc Jockey" tag, I add them to the Composer tag. I'd appreciate being able use symbols (semicolons [ ; ], etc.) to separate multiple entries within the Composer tag, the same as can be done with the "Genre" tag. Thank you.
  7. I lost my downloaded album art and edited info/tag of files every time I reinstall Poweramp. Please add an option to embed the edited info/tag and downloaded album art to the music file itself.
  8. Samsung Galaxy S8+ / v3-build-863-arm64-play / Android 9 After queue update, if the option "Start playing queue" is "after current category", the metadata below album art always shows "queue" even if queue list is empty. And also even if "Advance Category" is on, it still only shows "queue" (queue list is empty as same). Hope they get fixed at an early date.
  9. For the last 2 months I've been on a music binge. I've noticed upon adding new soungs to my music folder, Poweramp now wont read the metadata of newly added FLAC and Vorbis files. They will show up in the Unknown folder. Flacs will overnight show up properly, yet the ogg files stay unknown, usually a few songs will properly be read and the album will be perpetually incomplete. Nothing has changed on my end. Many albums bought and downloaded through bamdcamp and CDs ripped. Tagged through foobar2000. I've attemped retagging and converting to check that the tagging was done properly. In the end I fall back to aac where the tags are read immediately every time. Galaxy S10 + Multiple updates: android 10 with March 10 patches Poweramp v3 build 861-864: auto updates
  10. I just would like to share my happiness and confirm that, after a long wait, my Sony Ericsson MW-600 now displays song track info (title only) with the latest release of Poweramp using it with Smasung Galaxy S III. Is there a possible to implement ifo customisation, such as Artist and Track, if desired? Thank you very much and well done! PD: I had lost all hopes...
  11. I submitted a bug report for this but maybe another user can help: I'm unable to see track info while playing over bluetooth in my car (WRX, no Android auto.) Currently running Android 10 stock firmware on the OnePlus 6 with V3 build 853. Other players work fine and I didn't have a problem with build 826 on Android 9. But 826 doesn't install properly on Android 10 and no later builds send track info over BT. Let know if I can provide more info. I've also tried different AVRCP versions in Dev options (1.3 - 1.6) with no luck. Edit: fixed by enabling Settings > Misc > Now Playing List For Connected Devices/Apps.
