Sort All Songs by Artist

Recommended Posts

I am new to using Poweramp. I would like to sort "Library : All Songs" by Artist. I dont see this option available under the List Options for All Songs. Am i missing something or is this option just not available?

Thanks, Nic.

If you go to Artist, you can play songs based on artist and click shuffle list or all, and you can shuffle your whole collection.

Thankyou for your reply. My collection consists of just the songs (hits) that i like and most of the time there are only very few songs per Artist, I dont really collect full albums, so when browsing my collection I much prefer to use the 'All Songs' library sorted by the Artist, then I can see my full collection as 1 big list and scroll down and see the songs grouped together in Artist order. Browsing by Artist just shows the number of songs each artist has, then i have to drill into each seperately, not really for me.

Is it possible to add the 1 extra sorting option "By Artist" to "All Songs : List Options".....? :)

I would like to second the suggestion of niczoom.

Perhaps it's me not being used to how poweramps does it, but it seems so much easier to have one giant list with all songs sorted by Artist-Title and when I want to jump to one of those titles, to just scroll to it and click it to play, rather than navigate through several layers of menus/screens.

This is a possibility. There have been many requests regarding sorting options/changes, we'll see what is most requested and easiest to work with and make it happen.

Indexing the Sort Album tag would be my preference. By entering the release date in there in YYYY.MM.DD format all tunes by the same artist sort perfectly in chronological order of release. iPhone/iPod Touch do this perfectly.

If you want to play songs by artist you may try Filter option in All songs menu: tap on filter icon - type in the name of artist and you'll get all songs by that artist then long hold on song name and choose play from drop down menu.

Thanks.

Is it possible to just create a playlist with all of your songs and sort it in the order you want it to be in?

Artists => All songs is available in Artists as List view (not as Grid, which is default now) - that can be set via menu=>List Options while in artists. We'll probably add all artist list for grid mode as well.

Thanks!
