  1. Feature requests should be posted in the corresponding thread. Plus such feature doesn't have any sense as the hardware will convert it to 48kHz anyway.

    What is tone and limit for?

    Except RG I don't recall anything. You can turn DVC it's far more better, but you'll lose factory made effects, if they're important for you. For me yes. Also you can change sample rate in order to optimize hardware's work to 48 and its multiples or to 44.1.and its multiples. Also you can turn off all transitions, crossfades etc.In fact most of the options are a matter of taste, hardware limitations etc. And the last two are more tweaks than a decisive improvement

    Music crashes in Samsung S9+ Pie

    It won't help in Note 9 and the same generation device because there is no separate switch for UHQ upscaler.

    Galaxy s10+ exynos version, Hi-res no work

    Some walkarounds which work on my Note 9

    UPD. Another walkaround Hi-Res, No DVC, MusicFX on, but with 16/44.1. But in fact FX doesn't work complettely in both cases or at least the PA doesn't show anymore 16 to 24 bit conversion. However if during playback I change to 16/48 the player automatically will change the output to OpenSL ES and the error message pops again.

    Maybe the last sentence was not clear, sorry. In V2 limiter really decreased clipping, but RG tags did it far more better. In the current version right now I didn't manage to catch clipping both with limiter or RG turned off while listening to a couple of tracks. Although it's just matter of finding an appropraite track. Plus the whole clipping thing is depend on decoding process that's why it's considered that floating point players are better. Though I don't remember if the current PA has this. I forgot It really has DSP float.

    What is tone and limit for?

    It's an instrument of volume normalization, and in most cases it makes music lower. hat's why tags can be in negative numbers. So the normalization means an equal target volume for differrent tracks and albums. But another implication if its use is the elimination of soft clipping but this is relevant only to lossy files which don't contained an original audio signal and thus every player decodes it with approximations. This approximate decoding can cause clipping. As for me I didn't test it on the current PA, but v2 with limiter had the clipping. PC software players foobar, MusicBee, Aimp have RG to prevent clippping. However the use of RG can cause clipping if you manually increase volume. But usually reasonable man will tick "apply RG preventing clipping according to peak" RG does the following: 1. Prevent clipping (perform peak normalization to 0 dBFS of those tracks / albums that have level of the peak sample higher than one). 2. Perform a gain by a certain amount (in dB). In this case, a preliminary analysis of the tracks is not required. 3. Perform a track / album gain to a predetermined average perceived volume (the default target is 89 dB, but it can be increased / decreased within +/- 20dB). 4. Perform amplification of the track / album to a predetermined average perceived volume and, if as a result, the peak sample level is out of tolerance, adjust the level to 0 dBFS (full scale).

    If you don't use RG tags, it'll likely occur

    No, AFIK it helps against clipping

    I use Note 9 Exynos with turned on bit upscale and adapt sound, no problems either

    Sort by bitrate

    Maybe formats or file extensions, as bitrate are not a firm sign of quality, and secondly the range of bitrates within a format can be wide enough. I saw such feature only in conversion and syncronization tools
  13. NickIst

    Bitrate Conversion

    This can be useful, but only in rare scenarios, as converting on the computer is faster if we're talking about bulk conversion and it's more convenient to edit tags, what can be necessary after it. Plus certain formats and tools for conversions are subject to copyright

    support Samsung's ultra powersave

    I don't see much sense in that function, I turned on that function when I had very low battery charge and I needed to be in touch

    It sounds like a change of audiofocus, you can adjust it in settings

    Error message "Failed: Hi-Res output Using default output" still persists. UPD: I found the source of the error message it's Samsung built-in conversion from 16 bit to 24 which prevented me from using the Hi-Res output. So in case of Samsung @ Pie for Wired (3.5) output: - 48khz/16bit ( Hi-res and DVC are possible, but with musicFX deactivated)
  19. Not sure, because they work independently from each other
  20. Another useful info. According to the findings from the post below, it's better to turn off bit/banwidth mode and to use only bit mode or to turn the UHQ completely https://www.head-fi.org/threads/analyzing-samsung-uhq-upscaler-with-measurements-on-galaxy-note-8-exynos.873550/
  21. My advice will be to use 48Khz or divisible rates, as Samsungs and as far as I heard majority of smartphones has only one oscillator which works with 48 Khz and it's better to upscale a bit tracks with more widespread 44.1 Khz.
  22. The screen is not from the Hi-Res output menu, btw.

    It works with other outputs too. And as it should be DVC disables it
  24. NickIst

    Poweramp Build 821

    Even if I have an error massage saying that it's not working (v820)? Like here: Secondly, AFAK you have one of these Samsungs if I activate DVC it will disable Adapt Sound, won't it?

    On my Note 9 Hi-Res without DVC for 3,5 doesn't work
