      Poweramp v3 Project Update   03/22/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code. It's not quite ready for open testing yet, and although he would like to be able to get it out by the end of the March it may just drop over into April. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Possible fix for extreme latency

    One more vote for getting this fixed on the HTC 10 😮
  2. Direct Volume Control (DVC)

    It sounds very saturated. Almost sounds like it's harming the phone speakers when pushed to the maximum. I like the volume, but prefer the effect off.
  3. Weird Setting

    Thanks for the explanation. Mine is English.
  4. Weird Setting

    I have the same setting.
  5. Does using Direct Volume Control bypass the preamp in the phone? Or does that not make sense? Does it have to go through the preamp no matter what? The volume is louder when using DVC on my HTC 10.
  6. EQ NEEDS MORE SELECTABLE FREQUENCIES

    +1 The ability to modify frequency parameters would make a world of difference to me. I have a spike in the sibilance range I need to cut. 8k comes close, but it's like using a club to reduce that narrow range my headphones produce.
  7. HTC 10 with BoomSound

    Hi-Res Output will be nice, agreed. Combined with sane battery life. What I'd like even more is the ability to define EQ frequencies. I have a spike in my headphones around 7.6k. I need to pull that down some. The closest Poweramp gets is 8k :(
  8. HTC 10 with BoomSound

    I've adjusted my settings a bit. Try these... HTC 10 settings 1. Turn on Dolby headphone effects first (this is important to do before setting up a personal audio profile). I use "other as my headphone device (VSD1S earbuds) 2. Setup Personal audio profile. Use the "listen to frequencies" option Poweramp Audio settings 1. Resampler, type SoX 2. Output, OpenSL ES, check No DVC, check No Headroom Gain 3. Advanced Tweaks, uncheck Direct Volume Control, uncheck Smooth Equalizer Presets Adjust EQ and other preferences to taste. This combination (so far) has achieved the nicest sound and stability for my HTC 10. Edit: This does not include using Hi-Res Output (experimental). That crashes for me as well. The settings I posted are just ones that work to deliver the nicest sound for me on the HTC 10 so far.
  9. HTC 10 with BoomSound

    Found some info on the DAC... https://www.qualcomm.com/news/snapdragon/2016/06/02/qualcomm-aqstic-sets-new-standard-audiophiles
  10. HTC 10 with BoomSound

    Mine does the same thing on Hi-Res Output. As far as the DAC in the HTC 10, I read somewhere that they used discreet circuitry on the Snapdragon processor as apposed to integrated. Try the output settings I'm using. Sounds very rich.
  11. HTC 10 Stock Rom 6.0.1 Hi-Res works, can be unstable. Sometimes stops with error while fiddling with playback.
  12. Just wanna say Poweramp Alpha build 703 is working nicely on the HTC 10. Settings... 1. OpenSL ES output with headphones 2. Using DVC 3. Using BoomSound with Dolby Audio as well as Personal audio profile. I use a slight EQ in Poweramp. Good job!
