Audio Speed Playback Option

Recommended Posts

Is there an option for speed control while listening to audiobooks in the Poweramp full version? I'm asking of there is any way to speed up audio, for some reason, I thought Poweramp was able to speed up playback for audiobooks or music, but now I cant find the option.

Yes, the Tempo control is in the second page (the balance/volume/Xpand/etc page) of the EQ settings. Values range from x0.5 to x2.

Thanks for the reply but I cant find the option anywhere. I checked all settings to make sure it want disabled, but when I go to the EQ/Tone Volume page there are no options for tempo. The second page only shows Balance knob/mono button/stereo x knob/ volume knob. I tried swiping but no other screens come up. I swear I used this function before but cant find a trace of it now. I see screenshots online where people used to have it but now it seems to have been removed. I switch to landscape mode and still cant get Poweramp to increase the playback speed of audiobooks or music. Any suggestions as to my issue? I purchased the full version but maybe thats what disabled the option to increase tempo with Poweramp.

It's only in the more recent v3 builds (700 and above) not the old v2 versions. As you said you had seen it before, I assumed you meant you were using one of the alpha releases. See the Downloads tab for build 709.

Thanks again for the replies, I hand not installed the alpha so I must have been using my phones default app to speed up audio books. Ill keep an eye out for its release though. it will be nice to have speed/tempo as a feature on the live version.

This is mainly for audio books, I don't listen to much music anymore. I just wanted a simple option of speeding up the file so I can finish it faster, some authors read very slowly. Ill check out the app you linked but it seems like Poweramp is the only app that doesn't let users control speed or pitch. Ive noticed lots of complaints in Reddit threads about other simple features being left out. The most common recommendations for replacement are Blackplayer and GoneMAD. Gonna try em all and see which is simpler.

o.

Try this : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.forgottenapplications.audiobook

[Features play/reading-speed (0.5x to 2.0x) on Android Marshmallow devices.]

 

 

or : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smp.musicspeed

Time stretching - change audio speed from 10% to 500% of original speed (change BPM of music).

 

 

or : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.ne.sakura.ccice.audipo

Audio speed change. ( x0.25 - x4.0 )

This music player is a good application for listening to a part of the music repeatedly . ( Ex. Music dictation. )

Also the app is good for listening the audio faster ( Ex. audiobook, radio ) or slower( Ex. language study ).

 

 

or you can search by yourself @GPS (Google Play Store)

To be fair, Poweramp v3 does have a tempo adjustment (see above screenshot),. However you should remember that it is designed as a high end MUSIC player, with the primary goal being faithful and accurate reproduction of music, so mangling the sound in this way is not really at the top of its design remit. :)

Great feature!

It would be better if we can set a target BPM and adjust playback speed/generate a playlist on the fly to match the BPM.

To me, the only scenario that I would want to change the tempo is to match my cadence of cycling, and that's more than half the time of playing music from a smartphone for me.

 

Kind of like RockMyRun or Spring, but works with a local music library.
