      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.

Steps to get to 'Settings' to disable DVC

6 posts in this topic

I've got Poweramp trial currently installed in my car's android 4.4 head unit and it sounds great.

The actual problem I'm trying to solve is to have the ability to fade to the rear speakers.  After reading the fourms I believe if I can disable DVC "Direct volume control" my head unit's speaker balance and fade control will take over and I can achieve what I want to do. ( fade slightly to the rear )

The problem I'm having is I'm unable to locate

Poweramp SETTINGS -> AUDIO ENGINE -> ADVANCED TWEAKS -> DISABLE DVC

I can't locate where the "Poweramp Settings" page is.

I can see that the DVC is on from an indicator on the equalizer panel.

You Android device appears to be reporting that it has a hardware Menu key, which means that Poweramp does not display an the extra three-dots menu icon.

This can be changed in one of two ways. If you can get into Poweramp Settings from any screen at all (or sometimes long-pressing on a 'Back' button will provide a menu feature too) then go to Settings > Look and Feel > Menus and enable the option to force the three-dots icon to always be shown. Otherwise, you could try installing the new alpha test build of Poweramp v3 (either enable the test-versions option in Google Play, or download the .apk from the tab at the top of this page) as that does not not hide the three-dots icon when a physical menu button is reported to be available.

Thanks @andrewilley upgrading to the alpha 703 version fixed the "Can't get to SETTINGS" problem for me.

Disabling DVC did not enable me to use the cars built in fader to move the sound more to the rear, but that is a different issue, so will read the forums to try to solve that.

Thank you.

Try the different output options in 703 (actually 704 is the most recent, but only makes a difference for compatibility with Android 7+). You may find that using a different method will help? But it does sound like it's something specific in the device's original audio path which allows the fader to work.

alas no, none of the different audio output options enabled the fade to rear to become available.

Sorry, it sounds like they have locked that feature into their own signal processing path which PA does not use. Worth trying turning off not only DVC in PA, but also all EQ/Tone/etc functions in case that helps, but I rather doubt it.
