What does this mean ?
post #153 of 220

Same question as the above post.  tried Googling "hardware parametric equalizer", but all I got was that it was a good thing. Sorry, my audiophile vocab needs a bit of polishing :P

post #154 of 220

So parametric eq will be incorporated into the voodoo sound I guess it means. Not sure of the benefits of this. I already have parametric eq in neutron app. I vaguely recall the wolfson chip WM8994 has ability for this, would you call it hardware eq???

Well, what the bass boost does in the voodoo app  is what I guess supercurio is trying to achieve now for the entire range and not just the lows. I'm not sure how supercurio is going to implement the parametric eq but he might just do it like the bass boost and add options to choose in the app and not just a simple equalizer.

I just joined to comment on the ICS rom issue for Vibrant at least. I would recommend ICZen found here http://rootzwiki.com/topic/21742-romimm76i-iczen-rc18-the-hammer-of-buddha-5-26-12-deficient-development/ . It is very stable, has excellent battery life (relative to what you can get out of the phone), runs fast and smooth, great support from makers, and of course voodoo. They also have add-ons in the second or third post which includes a vibrant friendly beats audio zip. With voodoo + beats audio, my music is sounding amazing. 

 

I'm way excited about what supercurio might offer with his next improvement... we'll see what comes of it.

I suggest using Neutron player to get the sound you like and ditch Beats.  Perhaps Beats is close to what you like, but superior results can be had with Neutron and Voodoo.

Vibrant is a T-Mobile Galaxy S variant.

I hope your phone is rooted and has voodoo sound.........otherwise, you've not heard superior sound from the galaxy s.

To be clear, The beats audio I'm using is a .zip file that is flashed in recovery. It seems to slightly increase the bass. For a player, I tried using Neutron, but I think my external sdcard is going out. The player couldn't seem to get through the initial search for music on my external. After a few failed attempts, I abandoned Neutron =( I'll try it again this weekend. As a player, I typically use Meridian, which is just a standard player.

 

Edit: Got Neutron player to work and let me just say this. For all of the audio features it has, it has got the most horrendous UI I have seen in any music app. It is downright hostile. As much as I would like to use it, it isn't quite worth the frustration to me.

Try PowerAmp.  I really like its UI and features.

+1 for poweramp.  the ONLY app I've paid for on the android market.  Well worth it

post #165 of 220

Make sure the sound is as good with poweramp compared to Nuetron. I personally find Neutron easy to use once your used to it. Tho I did have problems with the music search function. If you know how to use a parametric eq neutron is well worth it.
