      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.

Clipping issue

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Poweramp version: 2.0.10-build-588-play (full version)
Device: Samsung Galaxy S5
OS: Android 4.4.2 (rooted)

On some songs I hear a loud and noticable noise.
An example is the song: Highway Superstar feat. Honey Colonna - Dream Diary at 00:13.
What I've already tried:
- activating Limit in the EQ tab
- lowering all EQ bands
- lowering PreAMP
- changing audio buffer
- changing audio thread priority
- changing Replay Gain
- switching between different EQ presets
- testing it with a Bluetooth speaker, headphones and the default speakers

Whatever I try, the clipping/noise is always there.

I played the same song (file) with the Amazon Music app, the X-plore audio plugin, and with YouTube.
No problem at all!

Help, please!

Please try the alpha-test release of Poweramp v3 (available from the Downloads tab at the top of the page) and see if you experience the same issues. It uses a completely rebuilt audio engine.

I didn't help - I tried it with the latest Poweramp v3.

The only thing that helped was using another YouTubeToMp3 converter...

But it's strange that other players didn't have that problem.


Thanks anyway!

Sounds like your software for ripping audio off YouTube was not as perfect as you might hope. But since that's not exactly a supported feature, you take that risk I guess.
