      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. But but but... it updates more frequently!!!1!
  2. Go get your Poweramp from those developers then. Sheesh. Let's see them do even half as well as Max does. There is one serious contender on the Play Store right now. It's called Gonemad.
  3. Oh the days of being young and impetuous. "I wanna my update, and I wanna it yesterday!"
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. Try modifying build.conf and audio-policy.conf to see if that will work?
  8. 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.
  9. How about turning on clipping protection in Replaygain?
  10. 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
  11. Is it possible to check if there is capable hardware and the required software support for Hi-Res on the Xperia M4 Aqua?
  12. 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?
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. Can I request Opus support. http://www.opus-codec.org/comparison/
