Poweramp

Recommended Posts

I recently updated my Samsung Galaxy S8 software to a new version of Android Pie and once I launched the Poweramp app I noticed the sound was distorted and low. It sounded like it had a DVC slapped on it, so once I noticed this I checked the settings and they were the same, the DVC was off. But when I switched it off and on there was the slightest difference. I've been finding others with the same issue as far back as January from the forums and I just hope this can get fixed and update can get rolled out on the app as soon as possible since I'm assuming the app isn't compatible/ not functioning with this version of Android Pie.

What phone? I've had Android Pie on my Moto X4 for almost a year now and there was no effect on sound, negative or positive. Might be some specific tweak in your phone's firmware. Did you try reseting the audio and the set it back up? Seems to be recommended a lot, but I don't recall seeing acknowledgement one way or the other.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S8, and yes I've tried resetting the audio and setting it back up with no luck. I have also done the general things one can do when having issues such as clearing the cache, re installing the app, clearing the data for the app, and so on but I continue to have the same issue.

I had this issue on a Huawei Honor 8x, all I had to do was to go to sound settings and disable the "3D" sound effect.
Not sure if yours has some equivalent function.

Have you checked if you have Bluetooth absolute volume enabled?
In case your problem is with headphones/wireless speakers of course, if its only on the speakers of your phone, then its probably a problem with Samsung.

After Pie has been installed, it might be an idea to reset all the Output methods back to their defaults, as the appropriate settings might now be different. Settings > Audio . Output > Restore Defaults.

I've tried this many times, and just restored them right now for good measure, still nothing ­čśĽ

I found a workaround to overcome this issue, that workaround being downloading Build 818 provided here: 

With this build I am able to get back that dynamic, loud sound that was lost when I updated my phone. Although the only issue I have now is just some audio crackling that can't apparently be fixed with changing the buffer size, but it's better than having the sound nuttered.
