Audio track is 24bit for everything

Recommended Posts

V3 Buid 836

Lg G7 ThinQ

Android 8.0

Audiotrack Output always showing 16 bit playing through the speaker.

Audiotrack Output always showing 24 bit playing through earphones.

Pressing skip ahead button to the right of play skips ahead 2 files then the "failed to play file!" error message pops up for the passed file.

Reinstalled both the Poweramp program and key. That didn't help.

Normally the bit-rate is defined automatically depending on the device's requirement (especially if you are using high-res output, try using regular mode instead for headset. Resetting audio output modes to defaults might help.

Check in Settings > About to ensure it shows your installation thinks it is properly licensed and does not show Trial status.

Try turning audio resampler SoX mode off.

Try clear app data (although a reinstall should do the same, you never know).

Did a reset to default setting to all audio settings. Playing a .dsf file with earphones and it's showing 16bit output. Always showed exactly the type of file playing in other releases.

I can't find sox mode.

@nai;zs Poweramp supports more than 16 bit on 3.5 output via Settings / Audio / Output / Hi-Res Output or OpenSL Hi-Res Output (this works only if device supports appropriate output). AudioTrack output works with more than 16 bits with USB + BT on some Android devices too with Float32 option (usually, Google devices and on devices with ROMs close to AOSP). 

If you have some track constantly skipping, please share it for tests via Poweramp lists / long press / Send / Gmail / gpmaxmpz@gmail.com. Thanks!

PA has never dynamically switched output frequencies or bitrates based on the source file encoding. Max has said in the past this would introduce noise/glitches during the transitions, and would break crossfade, gapless, and some other stuff.

The metadata line at the bottom of the player screen can show several different pieces of information (tap to cycle through them) but the two options related to this discussion are (1) the source file's sampling frequency, bitrate and encoding method, and (2) the currently enabled output mode / bit depth / frequency.

I backed Poweramp down to V3 build 301 and everything seems normal. No more failed to play error messages and file types ID are correct to what bit rate  they are.

You haven't actually answered any of the questions above, or said what you mean by " file types ID are correct to what bit rate  they are". Where are you saying that this data is displayed incorrectly? And what licence/trial status was showing in the Settings>About info for build 836?

The latest build 838 may help you by the way, as that does change some of the things that could be encountered if you try to restore a backup of 836 rather than cleanly installing it.

The main display screen, cover art and whatever, didn't display the above file type correctly according what was shown in the library sections.
