    Post [ROOT][N960U/U1/W] Extreme Syndicate

    Replying for the sake of visibility since I ran into this exact same issue. Searched around for about an hour before reverting to my backup. Going to try again now that I know this.

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you're asking if it would be possible to install Viper and Dolby Digital Plus (DD+) alongside a separate version of Dolby Atmos (ie; not the one included in the Installer). This is actually what I used to do as well! In order to do so, you will need to...

    Old Team Member here, you're correct; as long as you install AML and clear your phone of any pre-existing Dolby Installs / Libs, you can run the two in parallel with each other. EDIT: it's important to note that the install order **must** be AML > V4A > Dolby. The reason that AML needs to be...

    That is extremely high. Ideally you want to try keeping it at 3.5dB. if you want, I can share the arise_customize prop that I use.

    Simply enabling Viper should not result in volume clipping. What settings in the Viper app do you have enabled, and what are there values set to?

    In that case, I unfortunately am at a loss as to what could be causing the problem. For all intents and purposes, there doesn't seem to be any real reason as to why you are getting degraded audio quality when listening to lossless file formats. Sorry for being unable to solve this for you.

    You do not need to reflash viper4android in order to change this setting. All you need to do is go back into viper and turn it down. Also, using playback gain control will also distort audio. There's little to no purpose for it unless your music files are at extremely loud /quiet volumes.

    Turning the clarity option up to 10dB will definitely distort audio. Especially lossless formats. I personally leave my clarity and bass levels in Viper at 3.5dB for a cleaner sound. I just tested this myself as well and there comes a point where the higher you put either of those options, the...

    Tidal uses a 16bit / 44.1kHz sample rate for hifi streaming on mobile devices. However, this needs to be configured in the settings of the app itself. To enable this, do the following: - Open the Tidal app - Go to the My Collection tab on the bottom - Select the Settings 'gear' icon in the...

    The 709 version on the Play Store is not the same as the alpha 709 available on the Poweramp forums. Here is a link to the version I am referring to (you'll have to create an account to download it, but I'd say it's worth it considering all the latest updates go there before the Play Store)...

    Are you using Spectrum Extension in Viper? Having it enabled when playing lossless audio will cause distortion and degraded quality. EDIT: To give a bit more detail on this, the reason why this happens is because Spectrum Extension simulates less compression; creating a middle-ground between...

    Are you trying to use the Hi-Res output for Headset, Bluetooth, or DAC? The latest alpha version, 709, seems to have better compatibility with Hi-Res than the standard release on the Play Store.

    I personally have had little to no success with magisk. Whether it be on Android 7.0 or 8.0. Because of that, I decided a few months ago to keep my old LG G3 on Android 7.0 with SuperSU, running Magnum Opus so that way I don't have to worry about never being able to find a compatible ROM + Root...

    Replying to this because it is arguably the best solution to the no-processing issue. For me personally, this has always worked, and I definitely encourage anyone experiencing this issue to try this solution before going further.

    I've actually never heard of this issue until now. Are they saying that playback has a lot of stuttering or something?

    I'm glad I could be of some help on the V4A profiles! As a huge Pink Floyd fan, I totally understand where you're coming from, and I think I might have a decent solution. I always used Atmos too, until I flashed guitardedhero's Dolby zip and tried out the Dolby Audio app (as opposed to my...

    Post ARISE Sound Systems™ - Auditory Research in Sound Enhancement

    If I'm not mistaken, Dolby Atmos requires SELinux to be set to permissive on many devices. As for the V4A profiles, the only thing that comes to mind for fixing that would be to place "true" (without quotes of course) for "Repair SD Card Permissions" and then run the script again. I believe...

    My personal favorite is Wide Clarity (preset #11). Cleans up the bass and makes the treble less harsh. Overall a really spacious and powerful sounding mix without being overbearing. EDIT: I should also add that I'm using ICE Configuration 2 with this preset.

    As for speakers, you can't go wrong with anything JBL made since it's a subsidiary of Harman Kardon. Personally, I think JBL makes some of the best systems for car audio. You can input your make/model and find speakers that fit it on crutchfield.com

    Both are DSP however in my experience this is what I have found: if you're going for strong surround sound processing, Dolby Digital Plus has a far better surround sound effect than Atmos. However, Dolby Atmos is really good at processing spatial effects in stereo. Personally, I set DD+ to the...

    It is still possible. Go into Settings -> Audio -> Output -> Audio Track Output Then tap the gear icon next to the output you are going to use, and check the box for 32-bit float point sample format.

    Post ARISE Sound Systems™ - Auditory Research in Sound Enhancement

    What player do you use? If you use Poweramp, you can enhance FLAC playback by enabling 32-bit float point processing and switching to the higher quality resampler with 99% frequency cutoff ratio.

    The crackling is likely being caused by the Resampler Cutoff Frequency Ratio or the current Audio Output configuration Start up Poweramp and navigate to the following >Settings >Audio >Resampler >Change Resampler Type to SoX Resampler (higher quality) >TEST: see if audio distortion...

    Did you just recently update to 7.1.1? And if so, was your most recent ROM flash or update through the use of fastboot?
