I keep all sliders and master volume up the highest they can go with sliders, tone on and limiter off

Distortion city! Why would you do that?

It was the limiter for me, I keep all sliders and master volume up the highest they can go with sliders, tone on and limiter off, but sometimes when I turned on the app, limiter would be set to on for some reason, and the button looked the exact same as when it was off, having the different colour lets me see straight away that its on and I turn it off before playing, sliders and tone go dark yes, but limiter can't.

Well it doesn't matter if it isn't fixed,I have other options and can use another skin that has a consistant look.

Only album I really get noticeable distortion is  on one particular Metallica album, (Justice) but all others are ok for me, Subconsciously I'm probably trying to disprove the maxim "If it's too loud, you're too old" ! hitting 50 here and I'm good!

Better to use the EQ settings for what they are intended - i.e. finely shaping the frequency response of the system to provide better audio reproduction - and just turn up the final output gain (i.e. the device's volume control) to 11.

Technically 15, since Android's volume control has 15 steps! (Unless your manufacturer has more steps, in which case 11 is way too low) XD

True, I used to leave them flat as Samsung has it's own sound settings, so now they are "flat" but raised up the top, I find that since I got Pie, the sound seems lower than it was, not muddy like others have said, it just seems quieter than it used to be,  Ill try as you said and just leave master fully up, and play with eq a bit, thanks Andre :)

The best very thin waveseek is back on Alt!  Love that one, was the reason I downgraded to a previous version, but I only saw it was back when

I was trying (and failing miserably) to do like in the SS on the store, it looks all transparent which would look great with my wallpaper, I set nav and android nav

to transparent etc, I have an S10+ so I dont have the buttons down the bottom but it looks like main background and nav are transparent, or maybe it's just blur from

the album cover you have as I cant see wallpper , either way, thin nav is back so gonna change from Yaps to Alt Yaps, Great job as usual!

Ever since one of the last Poweramp upgrades (running Build 844 arm 64-play Beta Tester on Samsung S9 the skin settings for the different YAPS  options are not displaying properly.  If I choose Classic then enter Skin Settings it looks fine.  If I choose Alternative Classic and then skin settings I get skin setting for Rainbow.  If I choose YAPS - my favorite  - (v29: Lots of Customizations) I get Blue Carbon skin settings.  If I choose Big YAPS and then skin settings I get SAMPLE Black Skin skin settings.  I uninstalled the YAPS and reinstalled but nothing has changed.  What could possibly have gone wrong?  Thanks

@maxmp I noticed in the skin selection list that if you select a new skin from current, then change again before exiting the list, the actual skin that displays on the UI is the first one picked. And multiple radio buttons highlight rather than changing.  This is since 842 and still on 844.

您好,更新新版poweramp侯皮肤下方的导航栏发生错位上移。

[Admin, Google Translation]: Hello, the navigation bar under the skin of the new version of Poweramp has been moved up.

My latest release of the free skin completely replaces the previous one. It is actually the paid for version but with some options removed or options reduced. The colour palette is fully available though.

Thanks for the great skin.  I have just started using it and it is much better than the standard Poweramp layout.

With the latest release, the layout went back to the default layout.  Is this what normally happens with new versions?

The play, rewind and fast forward buttons are also now their default (smaller) size.  Plus I cannot remove the volume slider.  Have these features been removed or have I just not found how to change them again?

Can these features be changed in the paid version of the skin?  I would love larger play, rewind and fast forward buttons and also the ability to remove the slider.

Thanks.

@Roddo i will restore the show/hide for the volume slider. As for the size of play buttons, as this is basically a cut down version of $yaps$ , the sizes are the same. I may make these configurable in the future. Thank you for posting

I thought I really ought to give this a try. I originally just settled on a skin that I liked early on, and never got round to looking any further. :)

I love the configurability, but thought I'd post a couple of comments - some of these may be different in the paid version, not sure of the limitations.

 

The Circle/Square rounding options for both the cover artwork and the title text boxes are perhaps a bit coarse, I'd ideally like a more subtle variant that just 'takes the edges' off the corners but without making them too circular. Just call the rounding option "Subtle" :)  Here is an example from the skin I was previously using, which I think gets the rounded edges balance about right:

In YAPS Category view, using Compact List mode, even using small rounded corners turns cover art into circles instead of squares with slightly rounded edges:

Oh, and the opaque/etc background chosen for the title/artist/etc fields in the Player screen also needs to be applied to the headers in Library views too, otherwise white text vanishes against light artwork, as seen (or not seen :)above.

 

Also, the vertical spacing in the Player screen for the Title and Album/Artist is messed up on my Galaxy A70 screen (possibly because of its quite tall aspect ratio, 1080x2240). The row of setting icons overlap with the lower text bar. Can the size/background colours of those icons be adjusted by the way? Might be nice to give them the same treatment as the three-dots icon. Are the Pro Button icon background colours adjustable too by the way?

image.png

 

Finally (and this is just something I've personally got used to, and prefer) could there be an option to place the three-dots icon on the far-right beside the Title text box? I know it would slightly reduce the available space for Titles, but I just like having all the controls in one area of the screen rather than having just one little icon stuck up at the top over the artwork.

@andrewilley, Thank you for this feedback I will try and deal with each of the points.

- the front albumart has the subtle corner option but is not carried through to text boxes which is a nice idea and will implement

- "and the opaque/etc background chosen for the title/artist/etc fields in the Player screen also" yes, noted

- "Are the Pro Button icon-background colours adjustable by the way", yes the full range of colours is available in both free and paid version.

-"the vertical spacing in the Player screen for the Title and Album/Artist is messed up on my Galaxy A70 screen", will fix this

- "place the three-dots icon on the far-right beside the Title text box? ", yes I can implement this and see what responses are.

Note that I will in the first instance apply changes to the paid version. Over time they will end up in the free version. Working on 2 app simultaneously takes too much time.

- Even the smallest albumart corner radius on the Player screen is a bit larger than I'm used to, hence my suggestion of an additional 'subtle' option which just smooths the corners off rather than making them too rounded (i.e. like the other skin which I showed above). 

- I can't find the option to change the black circle backgrounds of the Pro Buttons to MD Blue/Grey though, only to change the inner (white) control images? (probably me just missing it)

- Moving the three-dots icon position would need to be an option obviously, I'm sure there are people who love it just where it is.

I think I ought to buy the paid version anyway, as I know you've put a lot of work into this skin and you've been very responsive to user suggestions.
