Device-specific Volume Lock

Recommended Posts

@maxmp Is it possible to add a feature to support a volume lock, or preset by device? With the headphone and some Bluetooth outputs, having a variable level controlled by the volume rockers or software slider is prefered. But with other devices, especially USB DAC or car Bluetooth players, it is ideal to set one volume level and have that set each time it is connected.

This was not such a big deal in my devices prior to Android Pie, but now there is some "safety" feature that reduces the volume every time PA is started, and requires manually turning the volume back up when I plug it into my car system.

If there is a hard "lock" feature that could be assigned by device, that would be ideal. It would need to be selectable on/off to satisfy all users I think.

I'm getting the same problem, and yes it's really annoying. Everything else (headset, on-device speaker) remembers their previous settings, but whenever I connect to the car the output level from the phone gets reset to about 50% and I need to turn it back up to 100% (so I can then manage the actual listening level via the car controls).

I am using a 24bit/96kHz USB-DAC with power, so I get the benefit of charging and better quality audio input (not Bluetooth). So I can't use steering wheels controls for the tracks, but at least the volume was working. Now i have to adjust audio each time at start-up. Plus Android occasionally reduces the volume after a set period of time (I think it is every 20 hours of playback) again requiring a manual volume adjustment to restore the levels. But this is also a good reason why swipe controls are beneficial. Adding full functionality back for user-selectable functions for the 6 or 7 gestures (up/down/left/right/tap/double tap/tap-hold) would be fantastic (but already requested previously).

BTW - this does make a huge difference for audio versus Bluetooth if anyone else is interested. Here is the link for Amazon in Canada, I am sure similar are available globally.

This is possible and I think it will be included into “per-device presets” feature, which is planned. Thanks!
