  1. Would like to see some controls in the UI placed above the "knobs" "buttons" and "dials". This makes it easier to see WHAT changes are being made. For instance, in EQ mode, placing the "signal meter" ABOVE the sliders so one can see the effect of the EQ "line" in relation to the sound-levels per channel. Additionally, placing the "text" for each EQ freq. value above the slider enables one to see the value whilst adjusting making it easier to dial in exactly the value desired. Also, same for Tone Controls, Reverb control panel and Volume/Balance panel. Place the "text" value above the knobs.
  2. I'd like to see the ability to change metadata on a "per album" basis, rather than "per track". For instance, when date/year tag for some tracks is incorrect, within in album, the ability to correct the "year" field for ALL tracks within an album.
  3. I'm on a Razer Phone2. Rooted with Magisk and AptX-AptX-HD Codecs applied via modules and build.prop edits. Also have Dolby DTS baked into ROM. It's not Samsung only. This has strictly to do with the AAudio output. Prior to it being implemented in there was no issue. Also, before that, I was able to us Hi-Res to get 24Bit/192KHz sampling, but now Hi-Res only give 16Bit/48KHz, no matter WHAT I try. EDIT: Going back through my setup, I found that build.props that I modified didn't actually "apply". Additionally, there is a file in the /vendor/overlay folder that disables AptX/Aptx-HD which I failed to remove. I now have Hi-Res WORKING!! I'll post a link to the Razer Channel on XDA forums show what was required to at least get AptX working, HOWEVER: This likely WILL NOT work on a Samsung device. Additionally youe MUST be rooted to get access to the root folder to modify the build.prop file and delete the overlay .apk that disables HD audio. https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/aptx-in-stock-rom.3951825/#post-79963707
  4. Hmmm.. I was just searching for a solution to that VERY problem. I think we need to post this in the bug section!! I wasn't sure WHAT was causing the issue, but I know it only happens when a Bluetooth device is handling the audio.!! Ive tried turning Ducking and any settings related to "calls" to no effect. I usually end up having to force stop PA, then resume audio. Not ideal when your on a motorcycle or driving in a car..
  5. I've been SEARCHING for this solution for YEARS, Literally!! Thanks!!!
  6. Go to PA Setting> Look and Feel> (scroll to bottom) turn on "Keep Screen On". It is best to have your device plugged in to a charger as this will significantly increase battery usage.
  7. What preset is selected when you start playing a song? This will likely be the "default" that is always selected when music starts. Long press the "Rock" preset. In the tab that pops up, tap "Assign" scroll through the list and see which "device" is checked. If none, back out of settings. Tap the "Preset" pill button. Scroll through the list and look for any icons that appear under each preset. You'll see icons that represent USB, built-in speaker, Bluetooth, wired headphones, etc and possibly a device name. For any preset, you long press each one, tap "Assign" and check/un-check as necessary. See screenshot attached. Notice the Icons below "Phaiser" "Ram Diesel" and "Razer RP2"? Those are the output devices assigned to each specific preset. (I have custom presets for almost every audio device I own) Notice in the 2nd screenshot, Sony is "checked" and at the bottom I have options as to what to do with that preset.
  8. If you have AAuido Output available, I would most definitely use that option. Especially if you are streaming over Bluetooth to some high-quality speakers or a soundbar that supports HD Audio such as LDAC, AptX-HD, etc. The 96KHz sampling "opens up" the dynamic range of the music and you'll start to hear cymbal "hits", the guitar pick striking the the strings, etc. Especially noticeable when you have EQ properly applied. But otherwise, as others have said, use what YOUR ears tell you sounds "good", but don't be afraid to play around and try new things. Music is AWESOME, well EQ'd music will blow your MIND!
  9. I would use either PA's EQ or Dolby, but not both. You would basically be EQ'ing an EQ which is never a good thing. At lower volumes it may not sound too bad, but your likely going to get massive distortion once you raise the volume. Your also using way more battery power with both applied because the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) are both working overtime to apply the EQ effects.
  10. Dither is a method of adding white noise which has the effect of lowering the noise floor to eliminate distortion and noise that would otherwise ruin the audio. When music is mastered, and mp3 files are created, and compressed, certain information is actually "deleted". The algorithm used will allow the media player to "decode" the data and essentially add the missing data back in then to be converted once again from digital to analog through the DAC. Since your files are 16 bit/44.1khz resolution, and assuming your not using the hi-res output, ie 24bit/96khz, this value should be left to none. Otherwise, you can try various dithering dependent on which speakers/headphones you're using and listen for which sounds best. All of my music on my phone is at least 24bit/48khz mp3 or flac. Flac files actually sound much better, having more dynamic range, but at the expense of larger files. Usually 2-3 times that of an mp3.
