¡La Beta 10 ya está aquí!

Estoy probando una nueva función de Automatización basada en el estado. De esta manera, las características de Automatización como Bluetooth serán un poco más predecibles. En lugar de tener una opción "Cuando se desconecta" en Automatización, puedes configurar que siempre haga lo mismo cuando se use el Almacenamiento interno, por ejemplo.

Además, ahora hay una opción para los usuarios PRO de separar completamente Auto EQ de los preajustes. Cuando esto está habilitado, Auto EQ será controlado por tus dispositivos en Automatización.

Novedades

  • Automatización basada en el estado (Ajustes -> Comportamiento -> Automatización basada en el estado).
  • Opción para separar Auto EQ de los preajustes (PRO)
  • Se agregó un interruptor de modo día/noche para la Anulación de botones de volumen.
  • Muchos pequeños ajustes en la interfaz de usuario
  • Se agregó una traducción aproximada al alemán a la aplicación

Cambios

  • Se corrigió un problema con el "Método alternativo de apagado de pantalla" en la Anulación de botones de volumen (Ajustes).
  • Muchas otras correcciones de errores
  • La etiqueta "Modificado" en el Ecualizador es más pequeña ahora.
  • Se aumentó el tamaño del área activa para los botones "X" en el Ecualizador

Novedades

  • Entrada manual de ecualizador. ¡Solo toca una etiqueta deslizante!
  • AutoEq ahora mostrará de qué base de datos proviene un perfil
  • Añadidas 2 nuevas opciones a la interfaz al estilo Android 15: Activar animaciones de etiquetas y Aumentar el contraste de etiquetas.
  • 1800 nuevos perfiles de AutoEq (crinacle)

Cambios

  • Corregido el área de toque para el interruptor de encendido/apagado del ecualizador

¡Beta 8 ya está aquí!

Por diversión, decidí recrear la nueva interfaz de volumen de Android 15. Las animaciones y la experiencia general del usuario son extremadamente similares, con algunos ajustes y adiciones adicionales. ¡Considere esto como una vista previa temprana de la nueva experiencia de Android! Puedes obtener el nuevo diseño antes a través de Precise Volume!

En este nuevo diseño también puedes activar los preajustes de volumen y ecualizador. Todavía no lo he agregado al diseño de Android 14.

Puedes verlo aquí, pero recuerda que las animaciones se verán mucho peor en formato de video. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/9unHZ7OPZbQ

Y aquí hay un vistazo a esa nueva opción en el ecualizador gráfico.

Novedades

  • Se agregó un nuevo estilo de vista previa de Android 15 a la anulación del botón de volumen (estilo/tema emergente). Tiene algunas animaciones geniales. También puedes cambiar entre el nuevo y el antiguo estilo. Se planean más estilos... en algún momento.
  • Ahora hay una opción en el ecualizador gráfico para restablecer SOLO las bandas o SOLO la ganancia posterior. Toca el menú de 3 puntos que ahora aparece. Lo sé, también me molestó.
  • Se agregó una nueva solución alternativa para el error de "salto de volumen" que algunos usuarios estaban experimentando. Este es un error en Android que estoy tratando de solucionar. Acercándome...

Qué ha cambiado

  • Varias correcciones de errores

Beta 6 is here!

Lots of changes behind the scenes, and now landscape mode is supported. Also, Precision Profiles were renamed to Device Profiles. Sorry for the confusing change - I'm sure this will be less confusing in the long run though.

"Volume System Override" is now "Volume Button Override" as well.

What's new

  • Landscape mode is now better supported
  • Renamed "Precision Profiles" to "Device Profiles". It's just less confusing!
  • Renamed "Volume System Override" to "Volume Button Override".
  • Added an Automation shortcut to Device Profiles (Precision Profiles)
  • New UI shortcut: Pressing either side of an Equalizer window while in landscape will quickly minimize it. You can also scroll from either side!
  • Lots of bug fixes I honestly can't remember now

What's changed

  • Moved "Equalizer Settings" higher in the list since it's used so often
  • Better Audio Detection has been adjusted slightly
  • Lots of other things I can't remember at the moment
  • When calibrating a Device Profile, the check-list boxes will now be automatically pre-checked if you have run the calibrator at least once.
  • The "Reorder" buttons inside Automation's 3-dot menus actually work now!

Beta 5 is here!

Been working some more on Better Audio Detection. Added a new option: Aggressive mode. Now, the app can continuously search for new Audio Sessions. You can have it check periodically -- say, every half a second. It adds compatbility for a lot of apps and games (I hope).

What's new

  • Better Audio Detection option: Aggressive mode. Continuously check for new audio sessions.

What's changed

  • Equalizer presets list will remember how far you last scrolled
  • Changed colors in the Equalizer a bit.
  • Made a change that will hopefully allow the app to start effects easier
  • Volume System Override vertical popup is now more centered
  • Other bug fixes.

I'll try not to make a brand new post every time I push out a letter update (like beta-04e).

Just wanted to say I've added a battery saver option for Legacy mode. Go to Settings -> Equalizer Settings -> Legacy mode, and enable "Legacy mode battery saver." If your screen turns off and music is not playing for at least 15 seconds (or stops playing for 15 seconds), then audio effects will be disabled. They resume once the screen turns back on.

This doesn't mean they're constantly processing if no music is playing though. If there's nothing to process, there's nothing to process. It just means less resources will be used.

Beta-04f released

  • Fixed an issue preventing the Equalizer from starting back up when using the toggle in the top right
  • Better Virtualizer compatibility

Beta 4 is here!

Added OnePlus device support (for background volume changes)

A workaround has been added for background volume changes on OnePlus devices. Apparently, OnePlus has started blocking ALL volume changes in the background, from ALL third-party apps. Some developers have opted to launch an invisible screen every time the media volume changes, tricking phones into thinking they're in the foreground. This is not acceptable for an app like Precise Volume that has to make volume changes frequently. Launching an invisible screen also causes anything you're doing on your device to be interrupted needlessly. I've done extensive testing on the OnePlus 12 and it's working on my test device. Where there's a will, there's a way... The workaround can be found under Advanced.

Screenshot:

What this means is that Precise Volume will probably be the only volume management app to support OnePlus devices correctly. At least for a while.

If you think it's silly that a whole complex workaround is required JUST to change the volume in the background with NO option for the users to allow background changes the normal way, then please contact OnePlus! Your voice matters. A workaround should not be required.

Here's what happens when you try to change the volume in the background without the new workaround. There is no such thing as a "setStreamVolume" permission - at least not the way OnePlus has implemented it.

I've also made some changes to Better Audio Detection to use less battery. It should be more stable too, hopefully.

I'm still working on some other bugs people have reported. Unfortunately, the OnePlus workaround was actually crazy time consuming. I'm also a college student, so I hope you all can understand where I'm coming from.

As always, your feedback has been amazing, and I will continue to take advantage of it!

What's new

  • Added the ability to change view to a list instead of a grid (Home).
  • Added a workaround for OnePlus devices under Advanced. Volume changes in the background are now supported on the OnePlus 12.
  • Lots of stability improvements. That is the #1 priority right now.
  • Better Audio Detection should use less battery now.
  • New alternative Volume System Override screen off method under Tweaks.
  • More to come. Stay tuned!
  • Added a Church icon as a Preset Icon option.

What's changed

  • Miscellanous bug fixes.
  • Fixed Limiter post-gain not saving correctly.
  • Forced 120Hz to work on the OnePlus 12 and any other phones with weird display management detection with Jetpack Compose.

Beta-04a

  • Contains some bug fixes, particularly for the audio engine.

Beta-04b

  • Fixed an issue with the sliders and button volumes not matching up correctly.

Beta-04c

  • Fixed a memory leak. Performance is much better.
  • Made an adjustment to the sliders logic.

Beta-04d

  • Lots of performance improvements/fixed pre-calculation for multipliers in Precision Profiles

This update took a bit longer than expected because it was an opportunity to clean up a lot of code. A lot of random bugs have been fixed, but it's also very possible some new ones might have been accidentally introduced (hopefully not). I have done a lot of testing, but it can be difficult to test everything in an app of this scale. It'll be easier to update this app in the future though! Thanks for everyone's patience.

What's new

  • Media Locker is back! Go to Settings -> Behavior -> Media Locker
  • New setting in Volume System Override: Tweaks (only 1 setting for now - "ignore first press")
  • Some things I don't remember
  • "Volume booster" on the Equalizer screen can now be hidden
  • Press and hold to toggle Equalizer sections
  • Widgets should be usable again

What's changed

  • Refactored the whole app so it'll be even easier to update going forward
  • Performance improvements/optimization
  • Hopefully fixed (or at least mostly fixed) a volume jumping bug. Some users may notice it get loud for like a quarter of a second still when a song starts, etc. - I am still trying to find a way around this. The volume jumping bug is due to a flaw in Android's audio session code.
  • Less background battery usage
  • Re-designed the audio effects engine for stability

I am very pleased to announce that Precise Volume 2.0 beta is now available.

What's important

  • Complete and total rewrite. It's practically a new app.

  • Animations galore!

  • Full AutoEq support.

  • Graphic EQ gives you 10 individual bands (was 5 in the old app).

  • Added Limiter, Reverb, and Bass/Compressor. Volume Booster has moved

  • Volume precision (more volume steps) works. There are 4 different methods that attempt to force it to work, so if one doesn't work, another might. It's not likely for the app to break again -- or at least, if something breaks, it'll probably be fixable.

  • Added a fully functional custom volume dialog with custom volume steps, etc. I have wanted to add this for years.

  • Automation features are all fixed.

  • Tasker support (partial support - hoping to add more options as people send suggestions)

  • DUMP permission support brings audio effects system-wide. Very excited about this! It works great with Tidal and YouTube on my Pixel 7 Pro.

  • USB DAC support

  • Better Bluetooth support

  • Precision Profiles added - these profiles help the app to create more volume steps

  • Partial Material You colors support for things like Volume System Override and widgets.

  • Built from the ground up and optimized for Android 14

Known issues

  • You tell me! (just kidding... but no, seriously...)

  • Only Media volume can have a custom number of volume steps. This is a system limitation I can't get around at this time.

  • Material You support needs to be expanded to the whole app

  • Sometimes you need to pause and resume music before audio effects begin to work, especially after first installing the app.

  • Precise Volume is now only supported on Android 9+.'

Closing thoughts

The process of making this app hasn't been easy. I've learned a ton though, and am more excited than ever about the future of Android development. I'm so happy I got the opportunity to build this thing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I use this app myself constantly. I don't care who sees this - this app is literally a labor of love.

Most importantly, I just hope Precise Volume will be useful again.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!
