24/96 or greater ALAC incorrect speed

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

Apologies of this has already been covered.

 

I am running the latest version of Poweramp Unlocked : 2.0.10-build-582-play (Full Version) on my Galaxy S6 Android 5.1.1

 

​It works perfectly except for any ALAC files I play which have a resolution of 24/96 or higher. I can run 24/44.1, 24/48 with no issues but anything higher in this format plays at an incorrect speed.

 

Can someone advise if this is a expected behaviour? I have removed the app and reinstalled but the issue remains.

 

​I use iTunes to organise my music on my Mac and use ALAC as my preferred format.

 

I notice that I can run these files on Neutron and Rocket Player - but would rather use Poweramp as it in my opinion is better!

 

Any help would be great :)

 

Thanks, Jon.

24/96 is kinda (!) excessive for a phone. FLAC, ALAC and other similar lossless/etc formats are not as well supported as more mainstream audio files such as MP3, so the higher the settings you use the more likely there are to be issues.

I know the next version of Poweramp will be using a completely rewritten audio engine, so I doubt anything will be done with the current version, but in the meantime you could try down-converting to MP3 for phone use.

To be honest,alac is an Apple format. Poweramp runs on android which probably does not fully supports Apple, why should it!!. Apple wants to rule the world by making everything proprietary so why would one expect anything Apple to be compatible with the real world.
