BUG - Equalizer works for one song and turns off [#12462]

I am on HTC One M8 4.4.2.
I'm running the most current version of MMA 1.0.4.240.

Steps to replicate:
1) Go to the equalizer screen.
2) Check the box.
3) Start dragging the sliders (make it something horrible so you can easily tell if its on or off).
4) The equalizer functions properly.
5) Leave the equalizer screen.
7) Skip to the following song.
8 ) The equalizer has now stopped working.
9) Go back to the equalizer screen and the equalizer will pop back on again.

Bonus) It also quits working if you stay on the equalizer screen and skip songs. But the second you uncheck the box and recheck it the equalizer works again.

Thanks!
-John

htc one just did a system update and changed things on the phone so do a huge favor for the developers here, start and play the songs like you do. and let it close the equalizer and then go to the option and send the debug report so they can see what all changed to cause the issue's.
:D

XH8IO1XF3P (and another one right before that, i didn't get the code on that one though, both are called "EQ Malfunction")

You see here:
1) Play song
2) Go to EQ screen
3) Enable EQ and set values
4) Go to NP
5) Skip track (at this point EQ obviously has stopped working)
6) Go to EQ screen (when screen comes up EQ automatically turns back on)

Thanks!

Did anyone have a chance to look at the logs?
I am curious what would just turn an equalizer off after each song.
Is there a way I can look at my own logs?

Thanks!

Edit: I installed Poweramp to see if their equalizer had the same problem. It does not.

Some phones have their own way of boosting sound. And HTC uses beat audio.

HTC no longer is associated with Beats Audio.
They now run a modifier entitled BoomSound which is enabled for internal speaker playback and can be toggled during headphone use. While it does make the sound nicer, it is not a substitute for an actual equalizer.

I have used the MMA equalizer with BoomSound turned on and off and the equalizer works just fine in terms of audio effect. However, it shuts off after each song.

Due to the fact that the equalizer on Poweramp functions as intended when run simultaneously with BoomSound, I am still under the impression this is a MMA bug and should be looked into.

Thanks,
John

Just sent another log. USP3KHZXAG

In this log I:
- Start a song
- Go to eq screen, set eq, enable eq
- Jump to NP screen
- Skip to next song (at this point the eq stops working)
- Go back to eq screen (the eq instantly turns back on as soon as eq screen starts)

Is there any way I can look at my own log?
Thanks!
John

Hi,
nothing strange in your debug log,
it looks like some special behavior of your device in lower layer, but I have made simple solution to new release 1.0.5 (coming soon). Hope this helps.

Is this linked to a bug report in Mantis?

Thanks,

Just installed the new MMA Beta 1.05.
Equalizer still cuts out after one song. Bug was not fixed.
Symptoms are identical to before.

Most 3rd party equalizers found on PlayStore exhibit the same problem that MMA does.
Equalizers on both PlayerPro and Poweramp function properly.

Hi CreativeConfusion,

Can you generate another log using the latest 1.0.5 build ?

Thanks.
