Questions and wishes regarding v3 beta/final


Recommended Posts


I tried the latest v3 alpha but uninstalled it, so I'm still on v2.

There are three topics which are important/interesting for me.

1) Audio engine
In my library I also have a lot of old songs whose loudness level isn't that high.
(According to mp3gain it's about 90 dB.)
New songs have loudness levels of about 98 till 99 dB.
I set the loudness level for all my songs to min 95 dB and max 97 dB.
When I play the old songs on different devices or different music players,
there is absolutely no problem.
When playing them on Poweramp, I often hear some noises on specific positions.
(Probably were clipping appears.)

Even though rasing up the loudness level isn't the best way,
it's very simple and very easy.
Since all other devices and players (I tried) have no problems,
I assume Poweramp's music engine could be a bit optimized.
(I've already tried all settings, also in the v3 alpha)

Any changes in v3 beta here?

2) Linking EQ presets to Bluetooth devices
At the moment you can link an EQ preset to:
- Phone speakers
- wired headset
- folder
- track
- bluetooth

For the first 4 options it makes sense.
For bluetooth I think it would be very comfortable if you can link an EQ preset to a bluetooth device.
I, for example, use Poweramp with 4 different bluetooth devices.
(Portable speaker, home stereo, musician keyboard, headphones.)
Everytime I turn on a bluetooth device, the first thing to do is checking the EQ preset.
Since Poweramp can recognize that the smartphone is connected to a bluetooth device,
I wonder if it's possible that it recognizes to which devices it is connected.

I'm no expert, but I do believe that would be possible.
I doubt I'm the only one who uses more than 1 bluetooth device,
so this means many users would profit of that feature.

3) Album covers.
On v2 it's possible to set your design this way, that you don't see any icons on the album cover.
Only if you press on the album cover, the icons will be shown.
(At least there is an option.)
On v3 alpha some icons are always visible.

v3 alpha:


Is it the same case for v3 beta?

Best regards

Hi, since it has been released, can anybody answer my questions now?

Give it a try. I doubt (1) will have changed as this is a user interface update, not an audio engine change, but only you and your files will tell. (2) definitely hasn't changed at this point. (3) is quite different now - not so many icons (they have been moved down a bit) but title/artist/etc wording is now overlaid over the cover artwork area.
