  1. I would like to know, if I'm buying a new phone, from the specs or whatever, if there is anyway to know if the phone will support DVC+Hi-Res with no issue.

    I have a zenfone 3 that has bugs when both are active. i have to Turn off DVC if I want hi-res with no issues. The phone has snapdragon 625.

    But I also have a tablet (Lenovo tab 4 plus) that also has SD 625 and supports DVC + Hi-res with no issues (I believe...).

    So, if I'm thinking of buying a new phone, ia there anything I should be looking at to have DVC + Hi-Res with no issues? Or at least less probably will have issues...

    Thanks for the info. On devices like yours by default notification pauses Poweramp, as device (at least on android 8 ) can’t reliable play via hi-res output + DVC and notification sound on 3.5 at the same time). This is default setting (No DVC option for hi-res output for Wired/AUX device). This can be restored by using Restore defaults in Hi-res output settings, or No Duck option can be checked manually.

    Switching to open sl may happen when hi-res completely fails to load. Depending on ROM settings, only one hi-res (or actually “Direct” or “Offload”) output may be globally allowed, thus if some other player plays via hi-res output or hDepending on ROM settings, only one hi-res (or actually “Direct” or “Offload”) output may be globally allowed, thus if some other player plays via hi-res output or holds it for itself, Poweramp can’t and it resets to open sl.olds it for itself, Poweramp can’t and it resets to open sl.


    Yes, I've noticed this, that there cant bem two apps using hi-res at the same time...

    I'm going to try and disable duck

  3. After all, it seems that there is a bug with dvc... The day before yesterday, with DVC on I had low volume, no High Res and music would freeze with incoming notifications. Turning DVC off solved all these issues.

    Yesterday I had the opposite... With the dvc off I had low volume, no High Res. I had to Turn it on to have normal volume. But it would freeze with notifications... So for now I'm returning to neutron untill these issues are solved.

  4. Poweramp V3 Build 838.

    Zenfone 3 ZE520KL

    Stock Android 8.0

    What happens is that if I have the wired output set to Hi-res, whenever I receive a notification, it "ducks" for a second but then stops playing audio, even though playing time continues to run, as if it was playing the music. I have to disconnect the the headphones and then connect again to have sound.

    And even sometimes it changes from Hi-Res to Open SL on it's own. I've tried all the workarounds there are on the app, disabling duck, enabling forcing sound output after a notification, etc... But everytime I get a notification, Hi-Res stops working.

    With bluetooth phones there's no issue.

    Does anyone have the same problem? How did you fix it?


  5. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature request. Or if I can't setup this correctly… What I wanted is that in the main playing screen, when playing a Various Artists album (compilation, for example), instead of showing in the main screen Various Artists - "name of the song", it would show Artist - Name of Song. Like in the widget, it shows Artist - Name of song. I Would like that to do the same in the main screen. Is this possible?

  6. I believe this toppic is someway similar to my post: I can't shuffle Artist, or Album Artist. It starts with some random music from that artista, but then only plays songs from the same album, it won't shuffle with other songs, from other albums but from same artist.

    For example, I have several Radiohead albums. I select Album Artist (Radiohead). And before you ask, I have all music files tagged correctly with Artist and Album Artist with Radiohead). Then, after clicking Radiohead, all their álbuns appear under. I then press the Shuffle button (botton left button in Artist picture), it selects a random song (like Paranoid Android), but then it only plays songs from OK Computer, it won't shuffle to other albums from Radiohead. That has to be a bug...

    There's another thread where a couple people reported shuffle issues.  I think this was one.  My favorite it that I can't shuffle albums in a genre anymore.

    Is there a way to roll back to a previous version to see if / when a feature used to work?

    I've made already a search about shuffle issues, but couldn't find any similar to mine, so I made this post.

    I hope there will be a fix for this. PA so far is really impressive. It's a bit difficult to find the best audio settings, but after some search I think I managed it.

  8. I have latest Poweramp (V3) and a Asus Zenfone 3 ZE520KL with android 8.0.0. Poweramp works fine, even Hi-Res output.

    I was using V2, then stopped and started using Google Play Music with local music files. Don't ask why, I can't remember why I stopped using PA… Then tried Neutron Player, but found it very confusing... Then started using PA again once and a while besides Play Music, but I couldn't find that it had much better sound quality than Google Play Music (I believe GPM had some update and started using Open SL, that's why the sound quality increased), and now that I found how to setup PA sound correctly, returned to PA.

    But GPM had a feature I really liked: Artist Shuffle. I could select one artist, and all songs from that artist shuffled. PA is not doing that… And I believe it's a bug, because if I shuffle All Songs, it will really shuffle between all songs I have, even if I skip tracks.

    If I press the Shuffle button (lower left corner) in a Album Artist, it will start with a random song, but then ONLY play songs inside that album, it won't continue shuffling songs from the same Artist, only from the same Album.

    Has anyone also noticed it?
