      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      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 is hoped this will be ready for final beta-testing by the end of the May. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    Oh the days of being young and impetuous. "I wanna my update, and I wanna it yesterday!"
  2. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    Just to chime in here that I've enjoyed the player so far, waiting for hi-res audio to be patched for Nougat but it's not a big deal because the Zenfone 3 is already amazing in "low" res. Developers know full well the reactions of self-entitled users. 1) Provide updates and ETA, they will demand more for previews, images, line-by-line changelogs. 2) Provide a BETA that is full of bugs, they will curse and swear at every turn. 3) Aim to provide a BETA that is bug free, they will whine about the time it takes for the BETA to appear. 4) Promise an ETA for tomorrow, they will whine that it should have come out today. 5) Promise an ETA for today, they will whine that it should have come out last month. Best thing is to let a 3rd party handle the whiners, because the 3rd party won't get personal and make regrettable reactionary decisions. Doing that is stooping to the level of the average clueless user.
  3. Glad to see this post, I bought the ZE552KL, same audio codec, but jumped straight to Nougat and was surprised to see no Hi-Res. Should I also post audio_policy.conf?
  4. Poweramp v3 Project Update

    I'm so happy to see that development is still active. And a one-man show is not easy and not speedy. On my part, I just wish you satisfaction in the refactoring process, because Material does look good. Please take as long as you like and make sure family comes first.
  5. Try modifying build.conf and audio-policy.conf to see if that will work?
  6. If he has to take away time from the rest of us Android 4, 5 and 6 users, then I hope he plans to do NOTHING about N until N is finalised and in production. Given that he took more than 4 years to add support for the niche but important Opus codec, he better treat N with the same level of priority because there's plenty more bugs with Poweramp in 4, 5 and 6 to resolve.
  7. How about turning on clipping protection in Replaygain?
  8. Hi, Xperia M4 Aqua (E2353, 5.0, 26.1.A.2.167, unlocked bootloader, TWRP, rooted) works once the relevant lines for high-res audio or 24_bit audio are added to build.conf and audio_policy.conf. The build.conf was edited based on a copy that someone pasted in one of these threads. (just the compress-offload line, as well as the deep-buffer one for the heck of it) The audio_policy.conf was edited based on these files that are supposed to work with CM12.1 and 13 and not original ROMs. I carefully added just enough samplerates, formats and devices that refer to high-res audio in any way, did a restart, and Poweramp began to sing. Didn't seem to need the mixer_paths.xml . http://forum.xda-developers.com/m4-aqua/themes-apps/cm12-1-13-192khz-24b-hi-res-audio-m4-t3377706/ There is no lag when using the Sony API, but clipping may occur unless clipping protection is used in Replaygain. There is volume change, track change and seeking latency when using the default Snapdragon, but no clipping ever occurs. 1st image - no resampling, "OEM Variant" option checked 2nd image - no resampling, option unchecked 3rd image - resampling to show highest samplerate support 96000, option checked
  9. Is it possible to check if there is capable hardware and the required software support for Hi-Res on the Xperia M4 Aqua?
  10. In Settings > Audio > Output > OpenSL ES Output > Wired Headset/AUX , it is possible to disable Equaliser/Tone by checking that box. However, with the box checked, the equaliser sliders and tone knobs still modify the output. Is this a bug?
  11. TAK and Opus support

    Hi, I would like to request support for the TAK and Opus codecs. I understand that both are niche, and TAK will forever be niche while Opus may pull off a m4a upset because of its Open nature. Hence perhaps these can be implemented as separate plugins for your upcoming v3 audio engine, sold for about a dollar per plugin. This has the dual benefit of compensation for effort spent on obscure less-wanted features, and prevents bloat on the main app for those who have no use of such codecs (until they are convinced of the benefits). Thanks!
  12. Neutron Player

    It's possible to make a player sound 'better' by employing some nifty crossfeed parameters to bring out the 'details'. I.e., Neutron sounds 'better' because they have good crossfeed tuners over there. This tuning actually colours the sound and makes it less accurate. Once Max pushes through with the v3 audio engine release, there should not be any more differences AT ALL if both players claim to be perfectly neutral. On my default GS2 ROM, I turned on DVC. On Carbon ROM with Dorimanx, I prefer the sound without DVC. Yet, it's the very same Poweramp.
  13. Can I request Opus support. http://www.opus-codec.org/comparison/
  14. Hi, please excuse me for the long-winded title. I'm using a Galaxy S2 International set (GT-I9100) with default ICS ROM and SiyahKernel 4.1.2, rooted using CF-Root. Audio works both with and without DVC, but I observed that the volume change steps are more linear and predictable without DVC, whereas with DVC the volume change is more like an accelerating curve (volume increases sharply in the last few steps). As a consequence, without DVC my usual listening volume is at the halfway mark, while with DVC it is at the 3/4 mark. Is this normal behaviour for most people's phones? Another issue is that the RG function "prevent clipping according to peak" causes audio to be too soft, in fact nearly inaudible, when DVC is on even though the RG preamp is set at +6.0 dB (like what I do on Foobar2000). This does not occur when DVC is off and the music is nice and normally loud. So what I eventually do is keep DVC on, Apply RG Gain but without the RG clipping prevention. Everything is fine except that the volume steps are large and my music is either a bit soft or a bit loud. Would like to find out if anybody here has similar experiences, and whether this is a Poweramp bug or hardware-dependent quirk. Cheers to everybody, Poweramp is to Android what Foobar2000 is to Windows!
