      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 and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. He is the forum Admin. anmd not the dev. Max is the dev and as Andre stated max has not made any contact on progress for a long time, so there is no info that he has about the update schedule.
  2. Well next year seems reasonable eta right now, guess we will see if we get anything in time for new year...
  3. Have been thinking a nice feature would be if Poweramp could state which output path is in use for devices with multiple dac's built into them. I don't need to have Poweramp state device make etc, just the path name so to alleviate confusion on devices with mutiple dac's, as to which one Poweramp uses. The mixer path name will say all we need to know.
  4. There will not be an option called ess sabre, it is called high res output and it is experimental
  5. Bluetooth is incapable of high res output at the time, best you can get is ldac from sony. Even that wont be able to play lossless cd quality files. At the time Bluetooth just isn't fast enough for such a thing, also in Bluetooth mode it uses the dac built into the headphones.
  6. Have to agrree it is the rom's fault, nothing Poweramp can do to fix it, for high res output to work you need a rom that has those audio paths enabled, most people who make these roms have no idea about them or how to make them.
  7. Profit and more cost savings, as always for these big companies.
  8. It has to be added as an output path for the music to the dac, if it does not have a multichannel path than you have no chance of playing back a real multichannel recording(multichannel is 4 or more channels here). Most devices don't have one, verry rarely does one have it. Standard is the mono/stereo paths. You can check in your audiopolicy.config file what your devices supports.
  9. So far it only works for snapdragon chipset based devices fiio x5 3rd gen is based on rockchip 3180 you will need tyo way for the next beta or one after that, ofr max to implement the paths that those chips use.
  10. Yet every time he does, he is mostly met with whining and insults, most here just start complaining of why is it going to take more time so why bother?
  11. Yes, how difficult? Do you see any other app that supports high res output? No(except for Neplayer, but that one costs 20 euro and has barely any options), because all of them use 16bit/48khz resampling pathways, this is the only one to support non re-sampling, if it was so easy then all would support it, no? Besides is the current beta and alpha not working for you, v3 is not the product you are buying on google play, it is the v2 or current finished build to be precise, not a single word or promise of you getting v3 or anything beyond that. Yes you are making an unreasonable request, development takes time.Yes we all want it to come out, but this constant whining brings us nothing at all, just enjoy the music and wait. It is not easy to build the whole app alone.
  12. Thank you very much.
  13. Got a question for you all. What should the buffer size in Poweramp be set to and what effect will it have, have mine set to 1dps core and 27ms on my lenovo vibe x3, working great so far, just wondering if There are any negatives for setting it lower other than more work for cpu
