      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. Good news for lollipop users. Parametric eq. Useful feature for audiophiles.
  2. I encountered a small problem with USB DACs playback. During playback, there will be some sound distortions as if the buffer length is not enough. Tested with both q1 and idsd black label. Both exhibit the same problem.Cleared the RAM and tested again with the same problem. Is it due to the buffer size which is maxed out at 100? anyone having the same problems? I'm on Android 6.0.1. Note 5. Thanks.
  3. Hi, could you provide the name of the track that you are experiencing problem with? I have a q1 and could test it with my note 5. During USB DAC testing with q1, I did not experienced any crackling sounds. But I can test it again for you.
  4. Also try increasing the sound volume (Poweramp) on your phone once q1 is plugged in. For q1, I used 50 to 60. For idsd bl, i used 73. Volume scale is set to 100% in Poweramp settings.
  5. Poweramp has always been a music player that plays back sound files in formats that it support, to the best quality. That's what it does best. With the inclusion of USB DAC and hi-res support, it is better than ever. All those qualities that defines Poweramp shouldn't be forgotten. I do agree that the ergonomics of the player could be improved. If the menu items placement is still clunky and cannot be reached with 1 hand operating the phone, what can materials design do for the end user other than being visually appealing but yet, functions are still clunky? As music player, Poweramp has done a very good job because it is not a batch meta editing application. That editing functionality is placed there as a way for the user to do minor editing in case they missed 1 or 2 files. It definitely isn't placed there to for bulk editing on the go. Max has done a very fine job with Poweramp. But instead of doing many jobs at mediocre quality, I would like to see Max to concentrate on sound quality and ergonomics of the user interface. Eye candy like material design is nothing if the underlying functionality is clunky.
