Poweramp doesn't correctly read DISC field in APEv2 tags

Recommended Posts

Poweramp doesn't seem to correctly read the DISC field in any format which uses APEv2 (WavPack, Musepack, etc) and will report the disc number as 1 no matter what number is actually entered in the field.

It should be easy to reproduce by converting a flac to a musepack or wavepack in Foobar2000.

The only workaround is to brute force a DISCNUMBER field, although DISC seems to be correct fieldname at least going by this table:  https://picard-docs.musicbrainz.org/downloads/MusicBrainz_Picard_Tag_Map.html


On a related note: entering total tracks into a DISC, Track or Discnumber field by using a slash also breaks the reading of the tags. For example 14/14 to specify track 14 of 14 total tracks.

The key referenced in any docs can find for APEv2 (it's a very niche system - as is WavPack of course) is to use the 'Disc' name, although there doesn't seem to be much around by way of an official list of valid keys. I don't have anything with genuine APE tags to try it on though, might convert something and give it a try though.
