Annoying crackling and pops

Recommended Posts



I've been using Poweramp for about 3 days now.  I noticed some songs have a really annnoying crackling and pop sounds which are not present in Google Play Music.  I tried to disable the direct volume control but the noise is still present.  This ONLY happens in Poweramp.  Any suggestions?






EDIT:  I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S6

I have a similar problem. I get a lot of crackling interference on some songs when I turn the volume up, but when I turn the volume down it's OK. I don't get this problem if playing on another media player so the problem is exclusive to Poweramp.


I disabled the Direct Volume Control in settings to see if that would work, but the problem persists.


The following applies to me:


  • Poweramp version and build number: 2.0.10-build-581-play (Full Version).
  • Device model: LG G3 beat.
  • Android version: 5.0.2

My music is stored on my microSD card.

If it's only at high volumes, could it be clipping somewhere? Try turning the Limiter on (in the EQ/Tone screen), or set the pre-amp EQ value down a few dB (to give some processing headroom on any maximised tracks).



The only thing that worked was turning the 'Tone' setting off and choosing a flat equalizer preset in the EQ/tone screen.

Having crackling and pops too. Tried with DVC and without, Low volume/high volume, EQ on/off, still cant get rid of the crackling/pops.


1. plays ok for about 15 min, than after first pop, starts to happen every 2-3 minutes.

2. Logcat does not show anything out of the ordinary.

3. Only happens with Poweramp.

4. Tried +buffer and +priority.

5. Tried using 2/4 CPU cores for playback.
