Option to add lyrics to an audio file using tag editor

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

As a music lover, I have been using Poweramp for quite some time now, and I must say I am quite impressed with the new lyrics feature that the app has introduced. The ability to see the lyrics of the song I am listening to in real-time is amazing, and it has made my music listening experience much more enjoyable.

However, as much as I appreciate the new feature, I think there is still room for improvement. Specifically, I believe that Poweramp could benefit from an inbuilt lyrics editor. Currently, we cannot edit the lyrics information on an audio file, which means that if we have synced lyrics, we cannot paste them directly into the app.

An inbuilt lyrics editor would solve this problem by allowing us to edit the lyrics directly within the app. This would make it easier to correct any errors or add missing lyrics, ensuring that the lyrics displayed are accurate and complete.

Moreover, an option to upload .lrc files directly to the app would also be a useful addition. Currently, I have been creating my own .lrc files and uploading them to websites like http://www.lyricsify.com and  LRC Maker (lrc-maker.github.io) While this works, it would be more convenient if we could upload the files directly to the app.

In conclusion, I believe that an inbuilt lyrics editor and an option to upload .lrc files directly to the app would be valuable additions to Poweramp. These features would enhance the user experience and make the app even more useful for music lovers like myself. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and I hope to see these features added to Poweramp in the near future.

Poweramp is a music player, not a fully fledged file editor. There may be an option at some point in the future to allow limited editing of the Lyrics tag via the Info/Tags editor, but just as a block of text that you have already sourced from elsewhere - in the same way you can edit the Title, Artist, Album, etc tags.

If your songs don't have any lyrics, and you already have a third-party lyrics app installed on your phone, Poweramp can use that (or Google) to search for and display lyrics via that separate interface. There is also a programmer's communication interface (API) which allows third-party app developers to provide their searched lyrics back to Poweramp, but that has not been implemented by anyone as yet. None of these options will write data back into your audio files though, the displayed content is transient while listening to the music - and potentially inaccurate of course, it's just an online search.
