  1. To be clear, there are certain elements I prefer on the old skin vs the new, but on the whole, the new UI is a great improvement that I didn't know I wanted until it was here
  2. On OnePlus 3T, Android 8.0, May 1st Security patch level, I get no OpenSL ES HD option with the 70x builds whereas I can see and choose it on the 790 build.
  3. I have actually put some thought to it and here's my take. Ideally the Album Art shouldn't have an overlay with information that is already offered BY the album art. On the other hand, not all songs have an album art (and IIRC Poweramp still doesn't auto-search for missing album art). So my take is this: First of all, forget the boxes. If you HAVE to have text overlaid on top of an image, go subtitles style. That is, white text with a THIN black outline (could also be colored as per the background). That would be a lot less distracting than now. However ideally I would also
  4. ^ That. Unless you have the exact same output equipment as said engineers AND the exact same hearing as them, you NEED an EQ in order to offset said differences. The reason I am loathe to just wipe my previous Poweramp settings and start over is that I keep multiple EQs in it, each for the different type of outputs (earphones, headphones, bluetooth device etc) I use with it, and none of them looks like any other.
  5. I already mentioned that but I guess my post got lost in the crowd. If we try to keep our old settings, be it by updating on top of the currently installed version or by restoring our previously exported settings, the 790 build will have an issue accessing the phone's folder list. Directly accessing files (i.e. our music) still works. Wiping the settings solves the issue, unfortunately it also wipes the custom EQ presets we spent all that time and effort creating... I REALLY hope Max would offer us a way to only keep our EQ presets and restore the rest of the settings to their defaul
  6. Then you're luckier than me. It would be great if the final app had a settings sanitizer, just to make sure the upgraded app will work just as well (and as reliably) as if it was installed from scratch... EDIT: After some further testing, it appears that when I import the settings from the previous version, the app will crash whenever it tries to access the phone files & folder list. The app will keep working fine if I try to navigate my music library by artist/song/whatever but as soon as I try to access the folders it will crash. Selecting the "autodetect my music fold
  7. @andrewilley It might be a good idea to edit the first post to include a mini FAQ with answers to common questions/troubles. It *might* help with some of the double/triple/quadruple posts asking the same thing(s). Things as wipe data for crashes, a mini how-to concerning navigation with the new UI... Just throwing it out there.
  8. Started my testing with a show-stopping bug. I really, REALLY do not want to re-create my EQ presets so I re-imported my saved 703/704 settings upon update. If I do, I cannot access the "folder" menu AT ALL. The app will either (and weirdly enough) say "This means nothing to me" or it will simply crash. Deleting my settings and staring fresh fixes it, but I lose all my EQ presets which for me is a no-go. Also, I cannot find a button or gesture to jump to the next folder/album/playlist. The swiping gestures only switch the song.
  9. I always keep them disabled for Poweramp. But if it were that it'd at least work when I had Poweramp on-screen. It simply won't respond to the Bluetooth's commands. BTW, I read a few posts here and appears I am not alone in this: Some of the above seem ok as long as Poweramp is in the foreground. Unfortunately, for me it doesn't work regardless...
  10. Has anyone found a fix/workaround for the Bluetooth controls not working in Oreo? It's sad how even the beyond-poor ES File Manager's audio player will respond to bluetooth play/pause and previous/next track commands yet Poweramp will do nothing...
  11. I have had occasional glitches every few months or so but, considering I've been using the alpha version(s) on a daily basis ever since the beginning I'd say that in its' current state this alpha IS daily driver material. Sure the High-Res function has been shot ever since Nougat came out but OpenSL still works well enough and the audio output is second to none so I feel like Max left it at a reasonably stable state while he went to work on actually finishing it. People often don't realize that in development, things break multiple times while adding or fixing sth else and require a
  12. As a heads-up, OxygenOS OpenBeta 2 / stable 4.0.2 still have the same behavior. Reading some other comments here it appears to be a Nougat issue, rather than a specific ROM one. Strange thing is, on my OnePlus One I was running a custom 7.1.1 ROM (RR) and I *think* it was working, although it might have been the ROM implementing a workaround/hack that simply isn't present on official code.
  13. Confirmed, used to work fine with OxygenOS 3.5.4 (Marshmallow) but with 4.0 (Nougat 7.0) it won't even appear in the options with 703 while with 704 it will but will give a "failed to load, falling back to default output" message.
