The 705 will most probably be a legacy version along with v2 now that hi res is working in it.. this enables max to focus solely on v3 now .. i think it was a good move ..as notification as well as hires and other bugs are ironed out from the alpha

I agree. Don't think this is a bad thing, he's just finishing up the remaining issues in the alpha. The problems for him or that there are now so many different devices, and Android is maturing now, but with many people also on old devices that will never get a newer OS pushed to them. I can see using my LG v20 for a few more years for sure, even if i move to a new phone, it will be a great music player for awhile longer, as the SQ is good, and the battery is replaceable.

Sorry, about the blown fuse. Just tired of Samsung wait for update to Oreo, and it put me off, and took it out on this. I tried the 705 and sounds good with Hi Res but too bad the DVC is not working for Android 7.0, even disabled or on, the volume is low. I rather have DVC disabled until it is fixed, so I do not blow my ears when it does come back for Nougat. Then again, I still might have Oreo by then.

NOTE: Direct Hi-Res does not support DVC for Samsungs @ Android 7 (but Hi-Res + DVC is supported by OpenSL HD for Android 8+, or for Samsungs @ Android 5/6)

705 does sound great on my v20! Amazingly. 

Hey, even though ive said a few things that i didn't like about 790 as a beta, i dont feel that i am a complainer. Nor have i found a better player app. Kind of felt max wanted it more finished before he put it out as it is, but still think he will get it done, and wants it to be great himself.

Galaxy S7 Android 7.0 

Notification bar not working. It's there a setting on my phone that will stop it from working or is this a known bug on this device and OS?

Try build 705 and see if that works as there are some tweaks to the notification system in there (uninstall 790 first).

Still not working.

I was using the the regular version of Poweramp when I first noticed I had no album art or track selection in my status\noticfication bar. Then I tried the beta version v3 from Google play store, still didn't work. Then I tried the 790 build, still didn't work. I have the 705 build running now, still not working. Is there a setting on my phone I may have activated unintentionally? Any help is much appreciated. 

 

I got it!

I unticked "hide unknown album" in Poweramp settings. 

790 build even works now

Worth knowing! @maxmp this might help in debugging the notification issues.

This is a beta test release, and it is not yet feature-complete.

Not sure why high-res settings aren't sticking for you, but it'd be worth uninstalling and reinstalling the app (or clear app cache and data) and see if that helps. Do not re-import your old Settings before testing, as they could be causing the issue.

I downloaded the build 705 out of curiosity.

The sound quality is in my opinion, not to compare with the build 790. In build 705, the OpenSL ES HD output is not displayed. I think that sounds best in build 790, with Float32 enabled.

The Direct HD output of the build 705 does not have this option, even the sound has no dynamics and space.

The Float32 option is offered with the AUDIO TRACK output, again useless because this output only plays with 16bit and 48khz.

I'm back on the build 790 because the sound just sounds better.

Well first of all i got to say i love the new PA, still best player even not yet completed.

(Sorry if has been answered already, did not see it)

Now i'm facing a little bit of an issue, big part of my library its AAC, ive noticed that some songs were missing, cleared data and cache and perform a full rescan the songs started to pop up, they've play w/o any problem, few minutes later gone again, looks random and not all songs missing.

Consequence of this issue is not letting me activate PA giving me error 500 no activations left.

 

Any clue?

 

Thanks

OK, so despite the lack of library options (which is super annoying but I understand the whole beta/test version I'm in) I'm fairly happy with the new GUI. Few things:

  • PLEASE make the pause button bigger. I understand taking away the others but the pause, especially with the graphic representation behind it, is entirely too small and gets lost.
  • Definitely having different sound issues. Same album on the last stable build is cranky on this build, losing sound at the higher end where it didn't before.
  • VERY weird thing I'm experiencing just today, I have an album playing and the screen is off and it's playing a few seconds then advancing to the next song by itself. I don't know if it's doing it on more than one album, the one I was listening to this morning didn't do this, and it didn't do it in the last build. Very strange either way. 
  • I'm curious to see how the up button will work in the new GUI. I liked that you could choose whether to look by album/artist in the last one. 

All in all not too bad, though I'm withholding final judgment for the final release.

Hi, I tried the Beta and it looks great. I decided to roll back to the released version in the meantime as I needed my playlists. This worked fine for a few hours then teh playlists vanished. I decided as I had now seemingly lost the that I would try the beta again....I did this but decided again I needed playlists , I thought I would have to remake them ....But they appeared again for  a few hours then they vanished! Does anyone know why this is happening?

I don't know if it's been mentioned somewhere in the previous 54 pages, but as far as the artist library option, I found a rather simple workaround. Use the search function, for Artist, the results pull albums in the top section, and songs in the bottom section. Works ok for me, until the more complete version gets released, for the times I really want to find a specific artist. Sound is much better with 790, so I'm sticking with it.

Looks and plays great for me on my s8+ on Oreo 8.0.
Sometimes i get random crashes when doing the swipe down gesture on NP screen.
It seems to only happen when bringing it up then quickly swiping it away.
As if it crashes from doing it too fast. lol

Excited for v3, already bought the full unlock and it's my first time using!
Especially excited for more customization options and the Library features. (Especially artist view!)
It blows my mind how many people have come into this thread just to post about various missing or not working features without even reading the initial post. lol

I have the S8+ as well and I'm loving the new version's potential!

Does anyone know why when I change an albums embedded album cover to one I downloaded and applied through Poweramp the album cover shows as blank or as the embedded one when it's supposed to be showing the downloaded one? I've been having this problem, I'm on 705 right now because I want my playlists

Haven't had any real issues other than the obvious beta teething issues (random episodes of skip-pocalyspe that require a phone restart) All I can "complain" about is are the awful blocks of text covering the artwork, and perhaps a nitpick about the waveform seekbar lol. Wish is was a bit more conforming to the music ie perhaps the bars were a bit thinner. Small stuff but decent so far on the absolute basics.

Queing albums isn't working as I found out on a recent roadtrip but expected I guess.
