  1. Yes true especially considering the fact that each version of android change the media storage access system. at least not for the bad regarding security, but for an app that need to support all the versions its messy indeed.
  2. Myyyyyyyyyy baaaaaaadddddd !!!!!!!!!! problem solved !!!!!!! I did not use the app for few months and few months ago I was calibrating intent firewall on android, I don't know why and how "ScanDispatcherService" remain blocked on that firewall... my fault for sure... anyway I just unblocked it on the android intent firewall and its working now !!!! Ohhh myyy, never a problem/bug took me that long, I did not trust the logs and though there is a bug somewhere, where I just needed to trust the log and go from there as it was indicating an intent firewall problem. Ayway thanks @andrewilley
  3. Yes data cleared as it was reinstall, Yes I know that PA can not support everything, this is why I asked for advice as I do not know the content of PA's .scanner.ScanDispatcherService unless i reverse engineer it... and for a proprietary paid app this is a little odd, the rom is my own I am a dev, its basically a clean lineage build without many addition... just asking for technical advice as its an advanced permission bug. Thanks
  4. @andrewilley thanks for the reply and suggestions, indeed i already did all what you suggested without a solution. When I noticed the problem, I made a backup and uninstalled everything and just installed a clean PA and kept testing the different possibilities while uninstalling and reinstalling each time. it took me some times to test about a dozen of possibility I thought of... even thought of patching PA to add the permission on the xml file but I did not went that far... may be a special system xml permission file can solve that but I prefer keeping things in a "normal" mode lol... wait and see just one thing sorry but the attached log is not from the clean test install but from my main setup...
  5. Hi, The media scanner is failing completely and does not scan files even after the permission is grated (on a clean install on lineage 18.1 android 11) resulting in an empty library. Tested with a clean install; with the play store apk version and with the uni version the issue is still present. Bug : PA Activity : .ACTION_SCAN_DIRS CMP : .scanner.ScanDispatcherService "without permission blocked by firewall"... Here are the different captures... is Poweramp missing a permission declaration ? I tried to allow the additional MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE on ops but it does not work I guess because the app is not declaring that permission, but other similar apps work without that permission just with read/write permissions... Note that if I restore a titanium old backup I can still read my music but the scanner does not work... also on the scanner's file selector I can browse the subfolders etc. after allowing the app... I also tried the experimental feature legacy file access with the same result... Note that I did buy the app and the equalizer as well. (PA + Equalizer + Unlocker are installed...) Can you please help with this issue.
  6. Personally I posted this feature request because of AutoEq (https://github.com/jaakkopasanen/AutoEq) recommendations and after using their 10 bands file on parametric mode and been amazed by it... The only time I got a convolution equalizer working was with JamesDSP (https://github.com/james34602/JamesDSPManager) and the result was more than mediocre, I used the impulse response wav file given by AutoEq which should had produced a better or similar equalization compared to the 10 bands text file used on Poweramp but this was not the case. So in theory convolution equalization should be better but personally I think implementing a function that would convert that impulse response wav file into a 32 or 64 parametric bands profile (for a more precise equalization) would be a better implementation of a convolver feature and I guess would be a lot less heavy on CPU ressources.
  7. Hi, Your work is just incredible and thank you a lot for the parametric feature :), I bought the app right away, and after finishing my setup and been blown away by it I just bought the player even if I don't use it... top best paying app Adding a convolution mode would really be great where we would import a wav file per preset. (from AutoEq repo for instance) ... Lastly just as an advice (from a dev), you should update your business model not toward a subscription (I read somewhere that its planned), but making each new important feature a paying one (eq, 2 Euros for the parametric, 2 euros for an eventual convolver etc.) but its just an advice Thanks
  8. @Xav1403 Just tested the github AudioEq config for my headset with parametric mode, its mind blowing I get perfectly the exact same sound quality as my custom preset that required me 2 days to fine tune... its incredible that I got the same result BUT the bands settings are completely different its like saying 5+3+1=9 and 2+4+3=9 same result but different equation... anyway thanks Xav for that indication
  9. @Xav1403 Thanks Xav for those precisions ... an automated way with a button would be useful tho
  10. All the great bass are there 😜 (I know my treble config look contradictory but it works for me that way)
  11. Indeed the equalizer's bands impact other near by frequencies... on the graphical mode when using 32 bands starting with 5Hz there are 6 bands bellow 20Hz and I personally hear a big difference when tuning those 6 bands. Not that I can not really reproduce my config bellow 20Hz on the parametric, but a similar bands frequencies config on parametric mode would be helpful.
  12. Hi again... Sorry for bombarding the forum... your app is already awesome, but I guess sharing the experience is useful... I suggest adding a button at the end of preset list to import/convert preset from graphical/parametric saved presets. I played with the parametric preset its amazing but I guess it would require me a whole day to fine tune it correctly so importing/converting my existing presets from the graphical mode would be super helpful and time saving. Thanks
  13. @maxmp Thanks a lot for your answer 👍🙂 at least the pre equalization by Poweramp Player remain possible which is great
  14. Hi, Not too much important but a button bellow visualization button on the main screen to permit switching between graphical and parametric mode would be great Thanks This would permit an easy way to compare old equalizer settings and new one and we may prefer graphical/parametric depending on the sound source etc.
  15. Hi The parametric mode is awesome, but while on the normal mode we can use frequencies starting from 5, on the parametric mode the lowest value is 20... it should be set to 5 as well. Thanks
  16. Hi, It would be cool if we have a button on the main screen that lock the settings (make them not changeable) to avoid changing the bands levels etc. by mistake on swipe/touch or so... especially when using advanced settings like the parametric one. A "Lock" button between "Save" and "Reset" would be awesome. Thanks
  17. @maxmp is there anyway to tune android 11 (mido) Qualcomm to support audio effects (equalizer) with hi-res stream ? i have my config posted here https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/8736-list-of-android-devices-with-hi-res-audio-support-internal-dac/page/18/?tab=comments#comment-99706
  18. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (mido) working and getting a freaking amazing audio quality, mind blowing for such a cheap device... Snapdragon 625 (chip), msm8953 (cpu), WCD9335 (Integrated in Chip DAC ... /sys/module/wcd9335_dlkm) System: Android 11, Lineage 18.1 (zeelog version) ... Also tested working with Omnirom v8.1, Android v8.1 mido) pasted a lot of details for the dev but this works out of the box with a fresh rom install... Double checked with audio frequency test files and with the root command "dumpsys media.audio_flinger" Note that Poweramp Equalize app, audio processing needs to be disabled when using Poweramp player... PAE does not work with Hi-Res anyway Partial output of "dumpsys media.audio_flinger" /vendor/etc/audio_effects.xml /vendor/etc/audio_output_policy.conf /system/etc/audio_effects.conf /vendor/etc/audio_policy_configuration.xml Also note that I am using dolby digital plus equalizer library... but its disabled and having it or not should not affect the compatibility Captures of Poweramp Player + Xiaomi's Dirac Option... (not really related)
  19. Solved with gravitybox 1. Using volume long press control for screen off on Gravitybox 2. Having the feature enabled on PAE for when the screen is on 3. Lineage built-in function is disabled everything works ... its probably a Rom/Lineage bug... because the gravitybox hooked function fix the issue... but its PAE related anyway
  20. I just double checked to be sure... pause/resume on volume 0 feature is not affecting this, its only related to "change track by long press"... but I kind a find the cause... I am using android 11 (lineage 18.1 by zeelog for mido) which have a built-in feature "control playback" when screen is off (long press change track) when this feature is disabled PAE long press function does not affect volume control anymore when screen is off BUT it does not work when screen is off (does not change track on long press) only work when screen is on to summarize (this is only affecting screen off) : 1. lineage 18.1 control playback enabled + PAE long change track function enabled = volume button not working at all when screen off 2. lineage 18.1 control playback disabled + PAE long change track function enabled = volume button working when screen off but PAE function not working when screen is off 3. lineage 18.1 control playback enabled + PAE long change track function disabled = volume button working when screen off and lineage playback feature works (but this feature is just meant for screen off) Note that when screen is off PAE does not receive long press action (checked on last processed commands) I don't know if there is a solution here, also don't know if android.permission.SET_VOLUME_KEY_LONG_PRESS_LISTENER is limited to screen on, or if this is related to Lineage... I may test this feature on Gravitybox I think its available there as well to have it working on screen on and off.
  21. @maxmp Just retested and you are right it does work on long press, I did not knew that long press is required for a true reset. Sorry, and thank you for the investigation... Edit : plus its written ... ohhh my... sorry for that...
  22. @maxmp Yes, a feature that would make the equalizer settings shared between the two apps @andrewilley Yes I know BUT the equalizer app is not compatible with Poweramp Player when Hi-Res output is used. (it works otherwise but not usable as I am always on Hi-res when using the player app)
  23. @maxmp this is for the Equalizer app which does not have such feature (Hi-Res or emulate media)
  24. Hi, Thanks for your amazing work... In order to have the equalizer customization in a single location it would be cool if you add a feature to Poweramp Player to directly use the Equalizer app customization... I saw the import/export settings but this require action on changes... Thanks
