  1. Poweramp-beta-build-792-uni.apk https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.maxmpz.audioplayer Beta: This Beta is feature complete release. Few things are missing though, like incomplete translations Changes (from Beta-preview): • all Library categories, including all the actions • Dark Skin + per skin options - Pro Buttons, Static Wave Seekbar • Poweramp can be shown on lockscreen (vs separate lockscreen UI previously) • support for multiple item selection / actions in all categories, including Search • new per-artist selectable and downloadable images • new Low Rated category • Folders Hierarchy (and many others) category can be enabled via Library menu => List Options • removed ringtone action / removed per-song equalizer preset assignment • per-output assigned presets now applied on output change and Poweramp start (previously were applied on each track change as well) • improved headset button handling for Android 8.0+ • dynamic playlists (e.g. Recently Played, Top Rated, etc.) now can have more than 200 items as in v2 • Lenovo X3 ESS DAC 24bit support • OpenSL HD Output renamed to OpenSL Hi-Res Output • settings were reorganized slightly • landscape layouts added
  2. Applies to Internal DAC only (Wired Headset/AUX in Poweramp output settings). Please post your device (with optional ROM/Android version) if Poweramp alpha Hi-Res audio works for it. If it doesn't work, check this thread:
  3. Your device supports Hi-Res audio _output_* (at least 24bit, at least 96khz sampling rate), but Poweramp v3.0 alpha doesn't support it? Request the support here! Please provide (requests without these items will be deleted): Device model ROM version (Android version, stock/OTA/Custom ROM) Why do you think your device supports Hi-Res (link to device features, etc.)? A copy of your device's /etc/audio_policy.conf file may be helpful. [Edit: on some devices this can be found in /vendor/etc/ or /system/etc/ instead] * Please note, this is for Hi-Res output requests, just playback (with resampling) of hi-res audio is already implemented by Poweramp v2.0 for all devices/ROMs.
  4. Planned features for Poweramp - UI improvements (we'll keep 3rd party skins compatible) - support for album grabbing apps via system library album art support - google music song info - system library playlists support - settings export/import (to/from sd card, including equ/tone presets) - advanced tag editing - rating sync'ing from/to tags - optional (enabled by default) support for standard android .nomedia files - special treatment for user created playlists/queue, which keeps songs in playlist even if songs are deleted/temporarily unaccessible to Poweramp Bunch of 3rd party and in-house plugins, which optionally enhance Poweramp in some direction for users, who need it. We don't put everything in "monster" Poweramp package, instead, these are separately downloadable plugins: - cloud services via 3rd party plugins - smart playlist via 3rd party plugin - online radios via 3rd party plugins - automatic tag matching via 3rd party plugin - lyrics via 3rd party plugins - audio effects via 3rd party plugins - Sony Smart* accessories support via plugin - "Social" Poweramp plugin for FB, VK.com, Twitter
  5. Poweramp-alpha-build-709-uni.apk Poweramp-alpha-build-709-play.apk (no website purchase support, no other functional differences vs. uni version) Build-709 (Play beta channel release): https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.maxmpz.audioplayer Build-709: • fixed some dither options causing no audio Build-707/708: • Android 4.3/4.4 support restored Build-706: Adjusted hi-res output on various devices - big thanks for the community feedback! • Snapdragon 845 devices (e.g. Sony XZ2) - improved Hi-Res Output detection • Sony XZ/XZ1 - improved Hi-Res Output detection • Lenovo X3 - reenabled 24bits • OnePlus (1st edition) - disabled DVC for Hi-Res output due to forced speaker playback • added new per-output option - No Duck - for cases when notification causes issues. Activated by default for Hi-Res output for some Snapdragon 625 devices (Asus Zenphone 3) • HTCs @ 7.0 - improved Hi-Res Output stability • Nexus 6P - fixed notification coloring
  6. Re: back button. The back button (and navigation paths overal) is the same is Poweramp v1/v2/v2alpha - that's not changed. Poweramp by default starts on main now playing screen. Back button returns (eventually) to that screen, next back button press returns to launcher. If Start at Library option is activated, Poweramp starts on Library screen. Back button returns (eventually) to that screen, next back button press returns to launcher. This may be confusing if previously some other players were used with the concept of List first, when now playing is just a secondary panel. In Poweramp now playing is a primary screen.
  7. NOTE: this Beta Preview is a preview-quality software to trial the new user-interface, it is not ready for day-to-day usage. It does not yet have all of the features of the previous Alpha release. Some functionality is not ready yet, missing, or incomplete, such as: Most library categories are not implemented as yet (you can only use All Songs, Folders, or Albums) No List Options in Library screens List/track/preset operations like deletion, adding to playlists, etc not yet supported No landscape or tablet-specific layouts No custom lockscreen (please turn off all PA lockscreen features if you find music stops when the screen goes to sleep) These features will be re-added into forthcoming beta releases over the next few weeks. Expect crashes and other strange things:) All the debug/checking code is still there. Please make sure you backed up your previous installation, as it's not easily possible to revert to previous versions due to database format change. Poweramp-beta-preview-build-790-uni.apk Updated Notes: If you are downloading directly on a mobile, make sure your browser does not alter the filename - the filename extension must be ".apk" to work. Install the file using a file explorer app rather than trying to run it from your browser. If you have any crashing issues, try deleting the app cache and data, or do a complete uninstall of the old version and then try the new version as a fresh install. (Remember to backup before you do so). From this release onward, Poweramp v3 will only run on Android 5.0 and above. If you have KitKat or earlier, the old v2 release will remain available for legacy devices. [Admin Reminder: Development timings are very hard to predict, so timescales can vary. Repeated ETA requests won't help speed up the process, and may even get your post removed as clutter]
  8. 1. Hierarchy (and many other categories) are hidden by default, but can be enabled via Library => menu => List Options 2. Right, one some devices with rather low DPI (or raised scaling), font sizes are not ideal, that will be polished. 3. That is why skin dev. documentation for 3rd party skin developers is my priority after the v3 release.
  9. Please disable Blur Background in Lock Screen Settings. Use menu on main screen (3 dots on album art) for Albums / Artists / Folder buttons.

    Bring back "keep controls" visualizer method

    Just set Faded Controls Transparency to ~100% in Visualization settings and controls will be visible.
  11. Yes, but nowadays it's not easy to quickly release to Play even on beta channel as it rejects builds, so it takes a bit more time to get APK there.
  12. No, unfortunately, build 790 won't help (despite showing 192k 24bit label), as it's a device+ROM limitation. This will just eat your battery faster and produce slightly worse audio due to resampling back from hi-res.
  13. Hi-Res (via Open SL HD) works fine on any capable Samsung @ 8.0, S7E included. (I should probably rename Open SL HD to Open SL Hi-Res :))))

    Alpha 709 - Hi-res output bug

    Right, so let's hope next ROM update fixes that. Also if you prefer DSP-processed sound, deep basses, or other equalization, non-hi-res output with DVC enabled is just OK
  15. @zf550user Axon mini doesn't support hi-res and custom ROMs generally don't support hi-res either. Distorted sound means DVC doesn't work, or ROM clips float by -1/1 not allowing extended dynamic range - I suggest disabling DVC per Hi-Res outputs (but most probably, your devices don't produce hi-res anyway on these ROMs).

    Alpha 709 - Hi-res output bug

    Thanks for the report. Yes, it seems DVC is not compatible in Hi-Res mode on this device - you can switch DVC off in Wired Headset/AUX options for Hi-Res output. DVC works properly with non-hi-res outputs on this device though. There is no such issue on Redmi 5 plus (same SOC, but little ahead Android version - 7.1.2), thus I assume it may be resolved by future ROM updates. If not, I'll certainly have one more pass on Redmi 4 - may be something can be done about DVC+Hi-Res on it.
  17. Unfortunately, this device has no software support for Hi-Res (no qualcomm patches), despite capable hardware.
  18. Poweramp doesn't have any code to change sampling rate without full track stop-start cycle - your certainly didn't have that. I would suspect viper4android - I suggest temporarily disabling it. Both of those devices are in my test lab (though, Note8 is on Oreo and both are non-rooted OTA ROMs) and they never shown behaviors like that, of course.
  19. Snapdragon 6xx series SOCs, including 625, do support hi-res via wired headset/aux 3.5, and usb-c analog audio (usually, detected as wired headset as well), specifications your posted are correct. But not all Android devices on hi-res capable-SOCs support hi-res, as firmware should support that too. In case of generic snapdragon SOC, Poweramp tries to detect that via /etc/audio_policy.conf, /vendor/etc/audio_policy.conf, /vendor/etc/audio_output_policy.conf (depending on Android version) - as previously described in this thread.

    Song Que Frustrations

    Hello, do you mean you want some unlimited history like queue at all times? As if queue is not auto-cleared (all files should be played once), then it can be only manually cleared, basically becoming a persistent history. Poweramp queue is somewhat secondary vs. direct category playing, which is a primary way of playing tracks there.
  21. There is no such situation, when app is ready, but I'm holding it for unknown reason:) No release now means app is not ready. Thanks for the patience!

    Bit Perfect Mode

    Thanks for the request, but ATM all android phones have software volume, basically meaning any volume setting except maximum is changing those "bits". It's a baseline, there can be also other non-configurable processing happening in OEM android additions, drivers, SOCs. Also, output is delta sigma 16-24-32 bits to 1 bit resampled anyway. I guess you can see pattern here:) - no bit accuracy possible on this hardware/software. Nevertheless, you can switch off all Poweramp DSP processing + DVC and Android will get just the decoded samples as is.
  23. I don't think this ROM supports Hi-Res properly, or at least Poweramp (any build) supports this weird ROM (lenovo hi-fi variant on Xiaomi device? messed/mixed up build props, configs, and libraries?) Even some ROM displays some "hi-res" numbers (24+ bits, 96+khz), it should be verified by capturing audio, as SOC still can force this back to 48khz. Stock Xiaomis on Snapdragon 6xx series support Hi-Res in Poweramp just fine.
  24. So I tested recent 709 build (default settings) on Huaweis: P20, P9 lite, 8 Pro, Mate 10 - they played non stop without any issues for 2+ hours on wired headsets. Though, I didn't change any Poweamp or phone settings - there are quite advanced Power/Battery settings in Huaweis.
  25. Thanks for the report. None of the Poweramp versions have any code to do that (start playback on volume keys), thus it something with ROM + device + apps combination. What is exactly your device and Android/ROM version? CM/Lineage ROMs have builtin volume keys to media keys processing when screen is off, but this only works when something is already played and that only changes tracks - it doesn't pause/resume.
