Copy /system/etc/audio_policy.conf to /sdcard
Rename /sdcard/audio_policy.conf to audio_policy.conf.zip
Attach /sdcard/audio_policy.conf.zip to a reply
I'll correct it for you. :good:

V4a working properly for your needs already except for this issue?

Already attached before your request :eek: Have not tried with anything else since SoundCloud is my only "audio" app.

E: MixCloud works though!

Flash the zip below in recovery and report the results. :good:

You are the hero sir. For some reason processing only started (with SoundCloud) with enabling speaker. Then I used Lock Effect Profile -> Headset and it's working! :highfive::highfive::highfive:

E: Donated to OP but your paypal link is not working in Finland :(

I appreciate the kind offer! The problem is on my side as I keep forgetting to look into fixing whatever issue it is. It started with an email from PayPal about some kind of paying eBay seller fees agreement. I have no idea why I received it as it did say to let them know if I had not initiated it. Weird. Maybe someone else has experienced that before and knows what to do. At any rate, I'm more motivated by the challenge of solving any and all v4a and related mobile audio issues so users can easily get the best possible audio out of their device. :good:

Having an odd problem. Using Eleven or Google Music, some songs have no equalizer effect. Some do, some don't. It however works with every song using the MX Player, so what is wrong? I cannot seem to figure it out. Besides that, i also always need to use the audio Balance feature when using 20ms and Level 2 surround sound, due to more sound being on the left ear than the right (no, its not the headset, i tried with multiple headsets and also bluetooth, same problem, had this on my Note 3 too, now on my Note 4).

Just bumping this :)

Would you mind taking a look at my issue? It is very weird, hence why i need some advanced help :)

I searched in the thread but this thread is bonkers large! 40k+ mentions of Nexus 6.

I swear I tried to find the answer between around noon yesterday and this morning. My Google-Fu has failed me. Last resort, always, is to post in the actual thread :crying:
5. V4A auto detects your CPU and show available driver modes below :
No modes: For processors with or without VFP .
Battery Saving: Available for all processors with NEON.
High Quality Mode: Available for processors with NEON.
Super Audio Quality: Available for processors with NEON.

I have Nexus 6 6.0.1 MMB29Q, rooted by WugFresh, have Stericson BusyBox Free, stock rom, stock kernel. Seems like a complete root to me. All my root apps work without question.

When I get to the step 5. as above, I don't get this question of driver modes. It asks me to install the driver, I say yes, and it says to reboot. So that's already broken, in my mind. When I reboot the app doesn't do anything. When I go in to look at the driver status in the menu I have:
  • Driver Version: 0.0.0.0
  • NEON Enabled: No
  • Enabled: No
  • Status: Abnormal
  • Audio Format: Unsupported
  • Processing: No
  • Sampling Rate: 0

No amount of turning on settings does anything to the app. Also, the instructions ask for you to alter Sound Settings > Music effects:
8. If you want to use only V4A as audio effect, follow normal mode. If you want existing audio effects to work, follow compatible mode.
Normal Mode:
9. In Sound settings > Music effects, always choose V4A FX unless FX is not installed.
10. Open up V4A FX (and xhifi), in menu, FX Compatible Mode set to Normal Mode.
11. If not working, try Compatible mode before trying Force-Enable.
Compatible Mode:
9. Do not change anything under Sound settings/
10. Open up V4A FX (and xhifi), in menu, FX Compatible Mode set to Compatible Mode.
11. If not working, use Normal mode and disable other effects.​

This setting is gone and it looks like it's supposed to be done through Google Play Music. I can disable the EQ in there but it doesn't have any effect either. I do not have a MusicFX app in All Apps to disable either. Again, none of the settings mentioned do anything to the app. Neither Normal Mode, Compatibility Mode, nor Force-Enable settings have any effect.

I even gave it a go with SELinux Permissive Mode. No change. What am I doing wrong? Are there instructions suited specifically for the Nexus 6 ~MMB29Q and/or devices without MusicFX? Should I try uninstalling Google Play Music? :eek:

Instructions you are referencing are old and not relevant to the current ViPER4Android and Android Operating System versions.

The latest ViPER4Android update did away with driver choices, only having a single driver for a compatible driver.

Marshmallow does not contain Settings > Sounds > Sound Effects, last seen in KitKat.

Enforcing Selinux, introduced in Lollipop, is the reason your Driver Status looks the way it currently does.

To remedy this, simply flash the ViPERAudio Supolicy Script below in recovery and reboot.

First, do this before flashing the script:

Delete the three Editor folders in /system/app

Disable MusicFX:
Settings > Apps > Menu > Show System > MusicFX > Disable
Settings > Apps > Menu > Show System > ViPER4Android
Ensure Storage Permissions are enabled by tapping the permissions are of v4a's App Info page.

Now boot to recovery and flash the script. :good:

Sorry for missing your post. Have you noticed this to be isolated to streaming playback?

Attach your /system/etc/audio_policy.conf to a post and I'll take a look. :good:

No local music. I noticed that in MX Player, some songs use HW+, some HW and some even SW. I'm sure that it has something to do with this.

Here my audio_policy.conf

What rom?

Have you disabled the rom's stock audio effects?

Dr.Ketan 910F Note 4 ROM. There are (that i know of) no ROM audio effects. Besides that, i did disable SoundAlive. The bug actually wasn't there all the time, it came suddenly. I most likely assume that it came when i updated Viper4Android to the latest from 2.3.4.0 to 2.4.0.1. I flashed a new ROM update from L8 to L16, and the bug still persists. The audio imbalance however already existed on the Note 3 and with other headsets

You might try 4.8, which I recommend anyway, as it's processing is noticeably superior by a substantial amount. If the issue persists with the previous v4a apk and driver, I suggest dirty flashing your rom and flashing 4.8 Stock. If that remedies your issue then we have narrowed it down to data in the Sony Beats libraries and effects.

4.8 of what?

My apologies, I was confused thinking this was one of my threads. 4.8 of ViPERAtmos or ViPERAudio, Stock or Sony Beats Edition, which uses the previous ViPER4Android 2.3.4.0 apk and it's Super Quality driver.

So i should just try 2.3.4.0 then. But how will it fix the imbalance issue? Also, i actually don't get to choose Super Quality, no idea why. I don't get any option as a matter of fact.

I follow you now. So you've been experiencing this for a while now on your Note 4, before v4a's latest release. In that case, you might want to try one of my packages which very well may give you the most consistent v4a functionality you've experienced on your current device.

Ok nevermind, installing 2.3.4.0 gave me the quality options back, 2.4.0.1 apparently removed these. And the imbalance issue is ONLY when i start fine tuning with making sounds sound like being more distant and around you. And could you give me a link to your packages? Also, i will write a more detailed explanation for you when i get out of bed tomorrow, currently i am on my phone and it takes ages to write long text, i will be using the PC tomorrow.

    ViPER4Android FX
    FX is the main control panel of ViPER’s Audio with all popular ViPER’s Audio settings.

    ViPER4Android XHiFi (Stopped)
    XHiFi has less settings compare to FX. It has superior audio reconstruction which mainly used for restoring lossy audio quality.

    FX Key Features
    ★ NEW: FET Compressor ★
    New compressor / limiter simulating operation of FET circuits.

    ★ NEW: Quad-Channel Convolver ★
    IRS support extends to 4-channels. *Requires special IRS files*

    ★ AnalogX ★
    Richer and warmer sound by simulating the sound signature of pure class A amplifier. *v2.4.x and above+*

    ★ ViPER-DDC (Now Cuztomizable!) ★
    Enjoy near HIFI sound on your headphones. *Not all models supported*

    ★ Spectrum Extension ★
    Make your music sound lossless with enhanced high frequencies.

    ★ x86 Platform Support ★
    Viper4Android supports x86 (Atom/Core i3/i5/i7) platforms.

    ★ USB/Dock effect Support ★
    ViPER4Android supports USB/Dock audio output.

    ★ Speaker Optimization ★
    First effect for speakers. Try it yourself.

    ★ Channel Pan ★
    Controls left/right channel output. Its not very useful unless your headphone is imbalance or faulty one side. It will be a cure for you.

    ★ Differential Surround / Haas Effect ★
    This is an old feature which ViPER520 had removed from FX in early days.
    But after many users requesting it, ViPER520 bring it back to FX
    More info on Haas Effect: http://www.mixcoach.com/creating-depth-the-haas-effect-2/


    ★ ViPER Fidelity Control ★
    ★ ViPER Bass ★
    With different bass modes, you can have greater bass experience than before!
    ★ ViPER Clarity ★
    With the latest Clarity mode selection, you can balance up heavy bass with high clarity audio that you can never imagine before!

    ★ Headphone Surround+ (VHS+) ★
    With this VHS+, V4A made its way to achieve great surround technologies for Android.

    ★ Auditory System Protection (Cure Tech+) ★
    With normal audio system, listening for more than three hours will feel fatigue, dizzy, tinnitus, irritated and other symptoms.
    This is a normal reaction, heavy bass and high volume could cause permanent damage to the human auditory system, but other phenomena can restore through resting.
    Viper as a listening experience professional will not ignore this problem. Therefore put a lot of effort to study how to make a "Healing" sound technology, just a small success. But thinking on how to let users experience it.


    ★ Convolver ★
    When an Impulse Response Sample(IRS) is loaded, V4A will process the sound to show the same characteristics of the loaded sample. Through Convolution, samples with effects such as equalizer, surround, reverberation, tube etc can be loaded.
    Download and extract IRS files to <storage>/ViPER4Android/Kernel/<paste files here>


    ★ FX Compatible Mode (Only in 4.x) ★
    Compatible Mode supports large variety of music players and the players' own EQ/sound effects (system-provided/third party)
    Therefore, you don't have to select V4A in Sound Settings > Music Effects, choose anything other than V4A. Just run V4A app and the effects will be working with anything else.

    1. In option, switch to Compatible Mode. Reboot, done.
    2. In Sound Settings > Music Effects, choose other than V4A.
    3. Run V4A app and configure the settings then the effects will work together with the one you chose in Sound Settings.​

    ----------------------------------------------
    Last Update Log
    Note: FX v2.3.2.5 onwards:
    1. Fully support x86 platform, but not fully optimised yet. (Using VHS+/Convolver may increase battery usage)
    2. Fully support true octa-core devices.
    3. Correctly-installed Busybox is required before installing V4A.

    If you see V4A installation pop-up loop, its probably due to incomplete root OR htc_audio_effects.conf

    Suggestion: Backup and Delete /system/lib/soundfx/libbundlewrapper.so

    21. V4A XHiFi effects gone after reaching certain volume? (~70%)
    A: This is due to Sony Xperia hearing protection library.
    Suggestion: Backup and Delete /system/lib/soundfx/libhearingprotection.so

    22. Why volume reduces after 10 seconds?
    A: This is not caused by V4A. Most probably you installed a bad and faulty xLOUD, ClearPhase or S-Force Front Surround port.

    23. In-call volume reduced?
    A: V4A will not affect call volume.

    24. What if my phone/tablet cannot detect headset plugin?
    A: Use lock effect mode and choose headset.

    25. V4A effects will spoil internal speaker/headset?
    A: Firstly, there's an audiophile limit in your phone, even if you max every single settings in V4A, u will never achive that limit.
    If the limit is achieved, your ears will blown off before the headset.
    If your earphone is not used to high volume/bass, with long period of high volume/bass will cause your headset to spoil (without V4A it will also spoil)
    For speaker, if a new phone straight away max the volume, within few days there will be distortion. Start off with 50~70% volume and after some time only max the volume.
