  1. Why would you need to get out of the beta program? I am in the beta program, and I was able to revert to 828 without uninstalling or re-installing. And reverting to 828 definitely helped, as I'm now able to use Poweramp while connected to a bluetooth audio device. I just need to make sure I don't update Poweramp to the buggy version, which won't be a problem. So, what ill-effects will I experience by not getting out of the beta program? I want to remain in the beta program, albeit skip 829.
  2. I'm trying to install the previous version build 828, but keep getting apk appears corrupt errors. Tried even earlier versions, same corrupt error. Edit: Figured it out. If you're having problems downgrading, do the following: 1. Export your Poweramp settings. 2. Uninstall Poweramp. 3. Install the earlier build (eg: 828). <-- now it installs fine 4. Import your Poweramp settings.
  3. Since the latest build 829, Poweramp crashes immediately on startup when connected to a bluetooth audio device. Phone: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Android: 7.0 Poweramp works fine when not connected to a bluetooth device. The previous build I had installed of Poweramp worked well without crashing. Tested with multiple bluetooth audio devices, results are identical.
  4. Hello. Enjoying Poweramp v3. A recent update forced audio ducking in my config. I've never used ducking before in a player. Now that I've tried it, I actually like the idea a little bit, but it could use some improvement. I would like to only have the audio duck when a sound/notification from specific apps play. (ducking app whitelist) I would also like to configure the ducking volume level when an app is playing sound.. Finally, I would love to also configure the ducking volume level when an app is recording audio. For example: I never want notifications/sounds causing audio ducking, except for WAZE.. Waze is a GPS-enabled social map, which notifies drivers about things like police, road hazards/stopped vehicles, construction, red light, speed cameras, etc. These notifications would be nice to trigger the ducking. I would prefer the audio ducking to be less-aggressive in volume reduction. It would be nice to be able to set the duck volume for any whitelisted apps, such as Waze, and Voxer. This would round-off the ducking feature nicely IMO.
  5. Ok, here are some basics... 1. Don't just go with the simple cliche-esque smile-shaped EQ curve. And yes, that's what I used to do. Wouldn't doubt that everyone does this at first. 2. Ideally, you need to find settings that sound good for you. This takes into account the kinds of music you enjoy listening to, and the amplifiers, speakers and headphones you'll be replaying through. You may end up creating several EQ curve presets, because there may not be one best one if you like a variety of music, or play poorly recorded/mastered source material. 3. I would use either tone controls, or EQ. I never use both. Actually, I never use tone controls. 4. It's preferable to cut a few db on the EQ sliders, rather than boost. If there was one frequency you wanted to boost, you could cut the rest to achieve the same effect. I start with the EQ flat, then play a looping sine wave sample who's frequency rises and falls, covering the whole audible spectrum. Listen for frequencies that are exaggerated or shallow, and cut/boost the frequencies until the rising/falling sine wave sounds flat, without peaks or dips in energy. I will then play a variety of music, and make small adjustments until I get the best overall sound. One thing... There is something called ear fatigue. If you spend a long time playing music and playing around with the EQ controls, you will eventually become oblivious to how bad the sound has truly become. You will often notice after giving your ears time to relax, like after a good sleep.
