After our investigation, the apps ‘Sound Tweaks’ and ‘Sound Tweaks Free’ by APPZOS have been found infringing our copyright.

We are aware of this matter and actively responding to it. We are contacting the owner of the two involved apps – APPZOS.

V4A Theft Alert!

Alert – Illegal V4A Theft / V4A Clone

Recently, we found an android PAID app very similar to ViPER4Android.
Judging by the screenshots, its definitely a copy of our app.
We will do an investigation on this following paid app.

Sound Tweaks by APPZOS [Paid]

Sound Tweaks by APPZOS [Free]

Please do not mistaken this above app as V4A. ViPER4Android is always free. Do not fall for this and do not buy it.

V4A Update In Progress

The next update of ViPER4Android is under development. This update focuses on system optimization.

Driver Optimization
Single core devices can now use Super Audio Quality driver mode. V4A uses ~30% of CPU to enable all in-app effects. Whereas for dual core processors or above, V4A only uses ~10% of CPU to run all effects at once.

Battery Consumption
These are a few important things to take note.

We found the reason why V4A runs continuously in background even when no music is playing. It is caused by touch sounds and screen lock/unlock sounds. These sounds will trigger the audio driver. Therefore, users are suggested to switch them off for up to 4 times longer battery life.

Of course notification alerts and ringtones are also affecting the activity of V4A in background, but it’s less likely we suggest users to switch that off too. (Yes, it means if you turn these off, you save even more battery)

ViPER’s Audio

Paid IRS

Paid IRS for Contributors
ViPER’s Audio is a non-funded free project. All software from us are free of charge without ads. They are planned to be free forever without any ads.

So as to repay our efforts, we decided to make paid IRS to financially reward ourselves. 

Therefore, to those who are looking for something in return, instead of donating, consider supporting our paid IRS. In this way, you get something in return. But again, everyone is welcome to donate without anything in return.

Details of paid IRS are posted under individual IRS page once available.

ZhuHang’s Z-Edition IRS
At the moment, there is only ZhuHang’s Z-Edition IRS. Z-Edition is a series of quality prioritised IRS. It offers high audio standards and is highly recommended by ViPER’s Audio.

IRS Announcement

ZhuHang’s IRS Announcement – 12th November 2013

Dear all,
My past release of impulse response sample(IRS) or now known as the previous generation IRS is discontinued. All my previous release of free and paid IRS are no longer available for download. All paid IRS are kept with the buyers themselves.

               My future release of IRS will be known as new generation IRS. The new generation IRS includes new effects as well as the remaking of all previous generation IRS.

To donors:
Thanks for your kindness. Initially, I wished to make a gift too for the donors but in the end I called off the idea because I don’t want to make donation complicated. Therefore, people who wished to donate to me and get something in return, instead of donating, you can consider supporting my IRS, so at least I can repay you with something.

To past buyers:
To be honest, I’m not good at decision-making so I take longer time to decide. I always try to make the best decision which everyone is happy with, but I realise it is very difficult. Hence, bringing past events to an end enables me to make better decisions and plans in the future.

               Hereby I put my previous generation IRS to an end, separating the previous IRS and the new ones. I cannot promise any future plans because I cannot estimate the future. So, please do not expect updates to the previous paid IRS. Besides, it is uneasy to plan when I have to concern on the benefits of all past buyers. I hope you can understand and I sincerely apologise to all of you on this.

               To show my apologies, I have prepared a special gift, IRS Appreciation Pack as an appreciation of your support. This gift is specially made and only intended for anyone who purchased any of my previous paid IRS. It is not for sale and will not be released to public. The content of this gift will not be revealed but one thing is for sure, they are not any of the new generation IRS. Once again, thank you all for supporting my previous IRS.

               To claim the IRS Appreciation Pack, please state the email you used to pay for the IRS and send a mail to this new email address: Please do not email to my personal email address, they will not be entertained. Kindly wait patiently for my response because I’m busy with my studies.

Yours sincerely,
Jasper Loo (zhuhang)
