Poweramp builds 906-911


Recommended Posts

I just noticed today that all my EQ stuff is messed up.  I've lost a number of presets, all the default presets came back, and also, the EQ now resets after every song to flat.  If I change it, it resets itself again when the song changes, instead of just hanging on to that temporary setting until I select another preset.  What the heck happened?  And why did half my presets get deleted?

Hi Andre!
Thank you for the great work with the EQ import function from AutoEq.
Strangely, all of the sudden my Poweramp won't accept parametic EQ .txt imports anymore.
I always did it through a long press of one of the presets in the EQ dropdown menu. Now, when I want to add a new preset, a confirmation message appears, telling me that the import (e.g. of "MDRXB700.txt") was successful - the preset will never show up in the list, though.
I thought the list might be full, so I deleted some presets, to no change though. In the next confirmation message it even stated that the import of "MDRXB700[2].txt" was successful, indicating that the first import was successful, too, but I can see neither one nor the other. If I can be of any help, tell me, I'll do my best.

@superluig164 the issue with the device-assigned preset being reset to user selected preset is fixed for the next build. As for user presets/default presets - the graphic presets are not touched, so I assume you're in parametric mode - there are no graphic presets. Switch back to graphic mode to get your old presets. Thanks!

This is incorrect.  I have not switched, and I even tried to switch and switch back.  A number of my presets are lost and I have no way to get them back.  I can even see on a few Bluetooth devices where the assigned preset was lost, it loads a flat preset with the name <default preset>.  This is a bug.  Please don't brush me off.  How can I fix this?

Thought I was the only one.

Interestingly some of my presets are still there, like 4 of them.  But I had a lot more.  Additionally I had deleted all the default included presets but they were restored.

Well that may explain it. But I think it would be vastly preferable to enable a functional toggle rather than disable the option to turn it off. Auto-save is quite annoying when it is not desired.

Yes, I agree, the always on Auto Save for Parametric EQ is really quite annoying, PLEASE revert it as a toggle feature.

By the way, what is the utility to have it always on? While playing with the EQ setting it could easily happen to change something just by mistake ...

@superluig164 I identified issue with the presets which were previously restored from old settings backup. Such presets will fail during update to Poweramp build 909+. 

The next 911 beta will handle such presets better, but they should be recovered by restoring that old backup again.

I don't remember restoring a backup, it must have been a long time ago, and I also lost presets which changed since any backups.  I guess it's a lesson to make backups, but this is a big deal for me.  Hopefully next time it won't slip through the cracks.

@code for parametric mode where all bands created manually and you have a lot of per-band options, no auto save means you loose your customization on any sudden preset change (e.g. by any assignment applied).

but autosave can also save unwanted changes, made just by mistake, something that is relatively easy when dealing with a smartphone's touchscreen.

Shouldn't be better to let the user choose what he/her want to do?

I'm kinda with you on this one. Having an enforced auto-save function in order to prevent you from making accidental changes to a configuration seems a bit self-defeating. All it would do is overwrite your carefully created and saved settings every time you make an experimental change, which seems counter-productive. I normally prefer to make adjustments and manually save backups as I go along - so I can return to the last saved backup if I mess things up. A bit like save-points in games.

@andrewilley the autosave/presets editing/accidental changes definitely require improvements. One possibility is preset “locking”. Changing locked preset should be impossible or <default preset> will be changed instead or copy of the preset will be automatically made.

This is the best solution, @maxmp.

Not all EQ settings will be imported from autoEQ, some will still be manually entered. After you went through the work of manually entering an EQ setting, you want to make sure it won't be affected by some accidental change. Preset locking is the way to go!

Regarding the fix in the latest build:

  • very large music collections scan improvements

I gotta say THANK YOU! For the first time Poweramp was able to find and load my entire collection quickly...very much appreciated!!

Is it possible to disable left/right swipe on Now Playing screen to jump to next/prev song.?

No, sorry. It was possible in the old Poweramp v2, but the ability to enable/disable swipes was never transitioned over into v3.
