      Poweramp v3 - Next Beta Release Planned for April 2018   03/14/2018

      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, but it is currently hoped that the next Beta Test release will be ready for April 2018.

Guys calm the f*** down. I don't know about you guys but i have waited 2 years! Max gave us an update on the situation was more than enough for me and he promised an update this month after all this time!? That's great! I don't mind waiting a couple more weeks heck I'd wait a month or more! I have waited 2 years for this and I don't mind waiting a few more weeks. Grow up.

Haha we were that young and impatient once. And no one is going to listen to the advice of a "slow old fogey".

It's classic missing the forest for the trees. Users forget that while they are pining for the latest and greatest, the current product is already working. One wonders how much enjoyment there can be in the current product if one's mind is always focused on the next big version?

If High Res works on your device yet, the controls can be found in Settings > Audio > Output > Hi-Res Output (Experimental). Otherwise you'll need to wait for the next release I'm afraid. There are no external drivers to add.

You may also want to check the Requests thread, http://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/8735-requests-for-hi-res-support-please-ensure-you-are-using-Poweramp-build-704-before-requesting/ , and perhaps post your device details there if needed.

I already added my device to the high res requests like a year ago, High Res does show up I just wanted to know if people have used it without USB Dac output, thanks for responding though I appreciate it

True but everyone has different reactions having been kept waiting for two years so don't try to make an impact on others. I'm sure that you are impatient and eager as well.

A device has to have a DAC built in to not use a USB DAC. Flagships have built in DAC. Maybe some mid range ones too.

Hi-res DAC is integrated on the chipset isn't it? Do you think that the Snapdragon 625 have that? I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

HEY HEY! Good news for everyone who still misses HIRES output. Try NEUTRON player, the developer recently added the experimental Hires output support and it worked for my HTC10, although its was quite tricky, but it WORKS now with no lags! If it's not detected automatically, search for Audio Hardware settings, then turn on the Generic Diver and go through all modes to find the one supported by your phone. F**ck Poweramp, Neutron has 64 bit processing and parametric EQ, give it a try.

For my HTC 10 lifestyle the settings were: 

On AUDIO HARDWARE screen:
Disable 32 bit output
Disable Low Latency
Eanble Generic Driver then tap on Generic Driver text for the next screen

On GENERIC DRIVER page disable all settings except Custom Format, then click Custom Format itself
then on FORMAT screen I chose 
Format: 24 bit
Frequency: 192 bit
Mode: FAST 
Right after enabling these you'll hear a slight volume decrease, that means you Hires works now, you can also see the status of your output in AUDIO HARDWARE screen in the field under CPU VEC and DRV information (its also clickable to see the log of output initialization).

Sharing your emotions with the forum is normal? I can understand being impatient but telling the whole forum that could be more from the world joining. Not saying to be rude but it is kind of bothering others that they come here to share their emotions of how they feel towards them not being patient. We can't control your impatience. Neither can Max. Oh and in first post, it says about this too about requests to finish and release it sooner.

Hi Res support in Neutron is nothing new.

Have this often written in the forum.

But nice to read the one more that has finally discovered.

2 years and still not working? The thing that it had to be rebuild because of new UI isn't an excuse... If he can't manage this project by himself maybe it's time to take proper steps to change it? Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing new release. Alpha has 3 annoying bugs that haven't been resolved ever... I'm curious if they are still present in beta.

Yeah true ... But when its a forum you expect such banter.. heck even after the beta release some guys would be sobbing about how bad they feel it is and will make statements about switching to some other player😑

As @andrewilleysaid, go ahead & test it out on PA alpha. If not, wait for the beta release(hopefully this month), or go for UAPP(USB Audio Player Pro), which I can confirm added HiRes to Mi A1 since it was mentioned in the changelog a few updates back. Hope this helped! Happy listening!

Thanks man 

but just asking how do u know that high res audio is working ? 

The audio quality btw play music and Poweramp is different( Poweramp is better obviously)

Is that mean high res Is working ???

Does this new version support DACs like the LG G6?

There is no new version yet, but the next beta build is meant to support many more devices for high-res use. I assume that will include LG, but we'll know when we get to try it.

If the alpha test experimental build of PA does not work on your device / custom ROM, please revert to the stable build. Although unfortunate the latest Oreo releases are causing a few issues at the moment, so the next beta build of v3 can't come a moment too soon for many people.

Hey guys,

Like all of you, I'm waiting for the V3 of Poweramp. I own the full version of the app.

I'm trying to de-Googlify, and I'm wondering if I can use the full version without the Google PlayStore ?

Thanks!

Yes, you can buy a licence from the website instead. However it requires email validation, and most of that time that requires Google services (see http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323571-unlocker-without-google-account for exceptions though).
