  1. I think my personal disappointment was the fact that people wanted a new ui..... Seriously, a new ui? Sure the sliding menus hate me because I end up switching songs vs opening menu... But the non alpha version's ui was fine and it got the job done. So if you guys want to complain about delays, honestly, blame it on the fact that because of our votes max now has to redevelop the whole app from ground zero...
  2. Moyu, oreo notifications is a bug that has been discussed and has been looked at/ should be implemented in the next update.
  3. As I've been saying for some time now. Android versions get updated. The last time this app was updated was around Android 5.0. So again, considering how we're on Android 7.0 and going to 8.0, there's bound to be compatability issues. Hopefully, all these issues can solved whenever a new update comes out. Also, as I've been saying, outside of AptXHD, don't worry to much about high res, there really isn't a noticeable difference in music quality.
  4. The oreo issues are to be expected as google can and probably does change certain ways android handles components. The sound periodically dropping off, i can't say much since I haven't had that issue. Unless you're on Oreo, it could be an oreo issue. Hi res for wired is like saying you can hear a difference between Flac and mp3 at 320kbps. Unless you're using high end dacs and amp with a very detailed and high end speaker/ headphones, I doubt you'll get much out of this high res/ tell a difference.
  5. Hey man. Feel free to learn code and build it for us! Yes, I am a spaghetti coder, but I can tell you, coding and debugging take time. For certain projects, they can take a very long time... As of right now, my question for you is, "What from the new build do you need that the old hl build doesn't give?" sure, as I've discovered, maybe if you have wireless earbuds, then yes, maybe an update for support for AptX HD is cool, but other than that, what else? It's a music player that plays music. I can guarantee that if the beta never came out, this thread never existed, we wouldn't have a bunch of people complaining about slow updates and what not. And yes, I can understand the frustration of expecting an update but it just keeps getting withheld, but again, what will be new in this new update that the old Poweramp doesn't already give.
  6. Sure, they can release an update but depending on how soon oreo updates come out, they should make a judgment call on releasing what they currently have (if they finish) or just holding it off. That's all I'm saying.
  7. With oreo updates around the corner or whenever it could be smart to just release the new Poweramp after the oreo update. I'm very certain that if they released it, after installing oreo, the high res would incompatible or something.

    Suddenly sound changes to low pitch

    Have you tried disabling all the stuff like temp, eq, etc? Not sure if that might help. Unfortunately, I can't say I've had this issue with volume, speed, other playback errors and what not.
  9. Guys. As I've said before, at this point in time, all you can really do is just post your phone specs. The things like, "I've updated and now there's no support" "my phone says there's support but Poweramp doesn't let me" etc won't do anything. Again, it's been a few years, android updates every year, Poweramp, since it's last update, is behind in terms of compatability which is why you aren't getting support. The best we can do is wait it out and hope for the best in the next update. I've mentioned in another thread, bit all on all, unless you either have Bluetooth or you have very very very high end gear I doubt, as of right now, you're hearing more out of your songs with high res settings on.
  10. I mean. I'm running root with custom rom on my htc m9. No issues what so ever xd.
  11. Yeah, give that setting a try. Do you have root and are running some sort of precession saving program like amplify or greenify? I can't say much since I'm not a Bluetooth guy so I haven't had much experience with your issue.
  12. Have you tried the keep services option under misc in settings?
  13. Did we even get a source straight from the devs saying, "Yes, the new revamp will be released on January 1st." If we did, I never saw it. A rumor will always be a rumor, and if there anything to learn, it's that rumors are never true. Rumor said the new iPhone does this. Nope. Rumor says the new amd gpu does that. Nope. Lesson here. Don't listen to something that's not fully backed up. Also, you give 1* reviews to apps that are broken/ do not work or if it's just not worth it. Poweramp still works well as a music player and functions well. Sire, I suppose the high res support isn't best for AptX HD, but other than that, I see no reason for down votes and bad reviews.
  14. Again, due to the lack of updates recently, don't worry to much if stuff fails. Its just that comparability with new roms and jew version of Android are a but shakey and not 100% compatible. Okay. I've never been a wireless guy, so I can't comment much on AptX. I've always been told, "wired sounds better than wireless." so I just assumed that if people cared enough for high res, they were probably using wired. Oops, assuming things in 2017. :/
  15. Whether or not we get it out tonight or not, the app itself is still functional and does a great job of playing back music. IAs for the high res support commotions. I mean, unless you're all walking around with dacs/ amps and high end earbuds/ headphones... not too sure how big of a difference having high res support really is for you... So again, just take the app for what it currently supports right now. Also, I'm pretty sure the devs have other things to worry about. I don't believe Poweramp is their main job. I'm sure they have other jobs and tasks and they're very busy with other stuff.
  16. Don't worry too much about that for now. Since there hasn't been an update to the current alpha build, many things such as newer version of Android as well as custom roms, they don't support hi res output. Hopefully all of this will be solved in the next update.
  17. Yeah, can't wait to check out the new ui. Tbh, I wasn't a fan of the sliding menus cause sometimes it just wouldn't register and it would just play the next or previous song xd. @Nhyphk 3rd party skins probably won't be enabled until the new version is stable or until the devs feel that Poweramp is now good enough to release code for it. There will be changes so 3rd party skins will need to review the new features and accommodate for them properly. I do believe they mentioned that all Poweramp skins will have to be redesigned due to the new Poweramp ui layout.
  18. I have 2 issues with Poweramp right now. I plan on downgrading to a different version of my custom rom, but I don't think the rom is the issue. 1. Digital beep? In some songs, at certain spots, there's this digital beep. It's not really a beep, but just a shrill, sharp pitched sound that lasts for a second. It's not the mp3 since it's not there on my stock player, but it's there on Poweramp. 2. Scrolling issues. Some songs don't scroll, so if I fast forward, it just restarts the song. And if I scroll far enough, I'll probably be able to get to 10 seconds into the song. What can I do in settings to fix this?
  19. Alright. Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure what the exact version is since it just says android7.0.x. But here is the rom and kernel information. I think it should work. But if not, I'll just wait for the next beta release.
  20. Hopefully, I explain my question well, but basically, I'm thinking about updating my software for my phone again. Currently, I have an HTC m9 (which does support high res, however, I am also using a custom rom which is viperOneM9). Currently, I'm using v4.3.0 which I believe is running android 6.0. The last time I updated, it was for viperOneM9 v5.3.0, and for some reason, selecting the high res audio in Poweramp would cause my phone to lag and crash. Also, if I loaded a video or used another music player, no audio would play unless I turned off the high res option in Poweramp. It's been a while (maybe 6-12months?) and well, it's around that time where I like to clean off my whole phone to fully remove unwanted junk and maybe speed up my phone a bit. And because of that, i'm wondering if I should update to ViperOneM9 6.1.0 which is running android 7.0. Will high res audio work? Or will it just crash my phone like viperOneM9 v5.3.0? Thanks. If you need more info regarding roms and all that, just ask and hopefully, I can provide accurate info.
  21. I know I'm a bit late but hey, I'm excited! Love Poweramp and it's features. Hope those weird little (nit picky oriented) bugs are finally squashed (like album art glitching out, skipping scroll bar, playback/ skipping bugs, etc). But yeah, looking forward to it! Also, for those who have programmed will understand this, but programming can be a b**** sometimes and not cooperate. As many have said before, I'd rather have a music player that's working fine with minor bugs than have an incomplete or buggy player. I believe in Max's coding abilities but again, no matter how pro you are bugs will always occur and debugging it all can sometimes take a lot time.

    Audio and scrolling issues

    Just a FYI, I did downgrade to venom rom 4.3.0. The screech was there in openES (5.3.0) and in openES and highres (4.3.0). Anyways, I did increase buffer preset to huge, while the sound is no longer there on one of the songs, i tested, the glitch is still there. I'll keep listening, since for one song, I notice a playback issue on my laptop and in Poweramp, yet it plays fine in the htc music player. Update, yeah, there are some spots where it's a mp3 file issue, where u can hear a weird beep at certain points, but again, there are also some where only Poweramp picks it up. I'll try and fix my mp3 files and see if that helps.
  23. Hmm, I guess I'll throw this on here. HTC m9 Custom rom: Viper one m9 ver. 5.3.0 Android 6.0.1 The m9 is supported, and it was working fine with Viper one m9 version 4.3.0. Not sure why 5.3.0 caused Dolby audio to crash and Poweramp to stop responding and freeze all audio outputs.
  24. Sorry, this is a really really late reply. There is a list of smartphones that support the high res output, unfortunately, it's not "complete" as there are phones that will work with it, but aren't on the list. As far as I'm aware, your Sony phone is most likely compatible with the high res output, as the z5 and z3 were, the zenfone, I'm not too sure. Either way, it sounds like there's a big difference in music quality between the two phones. I'm skeptical that there is a big difference between high res and default output. By going back to the stable version, you'll know that the music player works fine with your phone, so if audio sounds bad on the zenfone, you'll know that your phone has a bad dac or output. If the music sounds fine, then it's a compatability issue between your phone and Poweramp. Or... You just need to get used to the sound signature of your zenfone? Or just play around with the equalizer. That's all I can say as I'm just a guy who likes music and listen to details, I'm no audiophile that can easily distinguish between Flac and mp3...
  25. Sorry, this is quite late, definitely whitelist this app so doze doesn't put it to sleep, there is also a wakelock setting to prevent services from closing it after you close the screen. Not sure if root apps can override since I don't use doze anymore. Misc->tweaks->use wakelock. But yeah, I just have it checked off in case my rom/ greenify does anything to it while screen off. No problems yet.
