Hi! I'm one of the guys working on that project, and I can already tell you it's going smoothly :)

We have a few effects already working (although some extra work will be needed to check if they are 1:1, any small change in the code can lead to huge changes in audio quality).

My initial goal was indeed creating a 64 bit version of it, and also removing the need for pathing selinux (and yep, i was able to achieve that, no selinux patches needed amymore).

Overall it's looking good but I don't own a Pixel 7 Pro so I'll need some volunteers to test it once it's ready :)
Would this work on a Pixel 6 pro running A13?

V4A doesn't currently work on the Pixel 6 or 7 series running stock Android 13. Some have said it is working on the Pixel 7 Pro running the Corvus rom.
I can confirm, I have it running on my Pixel 7 Pro with Corvus. No issues with Viper repackaged.... and the sound is fantastic ;-)

Ici et ailleurs la terre est si vaste
It's this :


For pixel 7 pro??

And info or instruccions for instalación??

How's it going??

Thanks again
Be on November stable firmware
It is suggested that you first run the stable flash all script, skip setup, reboot to bootloader. then fastboot set_active other, run the flash all again, then follow the instructions from this step below. *
reboot to recovery (when you get to the "no command" screen, briefly hold power, tap vol up to enter stock pixel recovery)

wipe data/factory reset

reboot to bootloader

fastboot update rom.zip

Thank you!! for the information...

Can I ask where you get the method to do it...

It's just that my English is very bad... and it's hard for me to understand?

There are 3 links... what is each one for and/or which one do I use?

Is there group Telegram or something similar?

Thank you

All the best

Ciao! Sono uno dei ragazzi che lavorano a quel progetto e posso già dirti che sta andando bene:)

Abbiamo alcuni effetti già funzionanti (anche se sarà necessario del lavoro extra per verificare se sono 1:1, qualsiasi piccola modifica nel codice può portare a enormi cambiamenti nella qualità audio).

Il mio obiettivo iniziale era infatti creare una versione a 64 bit di esso, e anche rimuovere la necessità di tracciare selinux (e sì, sono stato in grado di raggiungerlo, nessuna patch selinux necessaria amymore).

Nel complesso sembra buono ma non possiedo un Pixel 7 Pro quindi avrò bisogno di alcuni volontari per testarlo una volta pronto:)
ehere I am ready😂

    FYI: AML was just updated to v. 4.2 and now supports V4A RE.
    With the new AML (v. 4.2), JamesDSP (4.6) is now working with the new V4A RE on my Pixel 7 Pro, for those interested.

    Maybe you wouldn't mind chiming in : Bluetooth working on 0.1.0? Also, are all viper files working ok, like presets, profiles, etc?
    Yes Bluetooth does work on 0.1.0. However Presets and profiles do not work yet. There are only a few settings that are able to be toggled on at the moment.

    Where are convolvers to be found for download?
    Go to the V4A and JamesDSP Telegram groups and see if they have links or posted any files.
    Are v4a convolvers compatible with jamesdsp?
    Yes
    Can you explain which portions of v4anand jamesdsp are different and why you're using both? It may be applicable in my decision to use bother or only one. Thanks.
    You should just go to the respective threads and read the descriptions, or even better, just try each one yourself.

    I never used JamesDSP. I used Viper before. I like the simplicity of it. I use the bass filter and vocal booster. Along with output gain to max out phone speakers and connected Bluetooth speakers. Whenever anything is playing you can change just what is playing and it will recognize that preset whenever that app is playing music. I use YouTube music and not Spotify either so I don't if that works or not. For what I used Viper, wavelet is a great replacement IMO.

    Also equalizer presets with some new ones I didn't see in viper. Headphone preset for a ton of earbuds. Pixel Buds are on there too.
    Aren't the convolvers these presets you speak of? Sounds like your usage is the exact same as mine. I wanted max possible volume but also clarity. I want to boost the vocals too. I listen to a lot of podcasts and radio programs. I don't care to or want bass boost. I prefer clarity for people talking in these long form interviews and shows.

    A possible light at the end of the tunnel is this project, they are aiming to reverse engineer Viper and modernise the files (hopefully that means using x64!). We'll just have to monitor the progress....

    Hey! Quick update, I released an alpha build, you can find it here: https://github.com/AndroidAudioMods/ViPER4AndroidApp/releases/

    It's just a test build, many things won't work, the app might crash if trying to load a preset, etc. Follow the instructions in the release to install it. Do not use any other audio mod, no AML or anything.

    I use wavelet and it works really well. Always had trouble getting v4a working

    thanks. downloaded jamesDSP and works fine. How can I get the best sound settings? Do you have any tips ?
    There really is no such thing as "best" sound settings. Sound is very subjective. What sounds good to one person may sound bad to another. Also, music genre plays a roll in how you set your sound up, as well as the type of device you are listening through (e.g. one brand/model of earbud will sound different than another and therefore adjustments will have to be made to that specific earbud).

    Best is to just play around with the settings until you come up with something you like.
