Leuven, Belgium. - May 25, 2005

Chaos Union and Hyperion Entertainment VOF announced today that recording artist Susumu Hirasawa will deliver a boot jingle created specifically for AmigaOS 4.0. Two additional tracks will also be included on the AmigaOS 4.0 CD to showcase Hirasawa's music.

About Hyperion Entertainment VOF

Hyperion Entertainment is a privately held Belgian-German company, founded in March of 1999. The company specializes in 3D graphics and the conversion of top-quality entertainment software from Windows to niche-platforms including Amiga, Linux (x86,PPC) and MacOS (OS 9/X).

Hyperion Entertainment has undertaken contract-work in the field of 3D graphics for companies such as Monolith (www.lith.com) and has developed a mature, fast, small foot-print technology to bring 3D graphics to low power digital devices such as PDAs and STBs.

Hyperion is currently working on AmigaOS 4.0, a vastly enhanced PPC native incarnation of the groundbreaking OS introduced by Commodore in 1985.

Likewise - I've been trying to find something that silences the startup chime on the Mac. The only utility seems to come up with an error. As long as we can turn it off on the Amiga, I'm happy.

Then again, I've not actually bothered to attach speakers to my AmigaOne yet so it's not much of an issue at the moment

So does the jingle play during the whole boot process or is it just a short bit that plays when it starts to boot? I prefer that to a sound that starts playing when the Workbench is loaded. I've always kinda liked the way that Sony did the short sound bit, followed by their animated logo when you power up a Vaio. Something like that would be really nice.


SiliconGraphics machines are good for that. Each model has a different start sound that plays the instant you hit the power-on button. Unlike the simple short jingles on other machines, the SGI sounds are quite 'funky'.

I looked for some samples online, but didn't find any. So I recorded the boot sound from my ancient SGI Indy here. (Sorry about the quality.)

Yes, exactly something like that. Short and sweet. But for it to happen at "power on" it would have to be in the rom, and from what I understand, the A1 Rom isn't large enough to hold power on sounds and logo's, so I guess we will likely use the Windows way of doing it.

It's not yet decided how it will be done, but I'm currently doing it by playing it as the machine boots and I really like it that way.

This is great news! I hope there will be sound scheme support in os4, as I already have a lot of ideas for creating some.

Cool. Well playing while booting isn't bad either. That's different to either the Mac or PC, so it will be unique. But it cannot be too long of a jingle, as some people have really short boot times.

It could continue playing when finished booting
Or, how about an audible countdown !

FOUR. four, four.... (echo-ing...)
THREE, three, three...
TWO, two, two.....
ONE, one, one....
FIRE !!



Cheers,

Martin

Does this mean the sound plays through the on-board audio chip on the A1? What about users that have sound cards? Or does this use the OS4 audio system further along in the boot process?

Questions questions.....


Thanks

Good question ! OS4 cant play any sound before the OS drivers are loaded !
So I'd think it plays a tune when it is done loading...

Cheers,

Martin

It's probably just a command in the startup-sequence playing the sound, so you could place it anywhere you like or remove it easily if you wish.

True!
and even Windows users can change . . . .
. . their sound, I mean:
Pick a new startup sound
Psst! You can mute the Mac.

>i changed it to a sound clip from that great film, The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Isn't that the ancient B/W one with the UFO landing and the robot that killed everyone who came close with a laser shooting from its eyes ?

And in the end they where just there to warn the earths population to not destroy themselfs, but it as usualy people didn't understand it and tried to kill the visitors and as such sealing there own faith

Cheers,

Martin

@Herewegoagain

A .mod should be small enough to fit in the Uboot.
One of the coolest mods I've heard, was called "the church", it was only 3kb

Well, it was never the mod itself that took up space, it was the samples. So called "chip tunes", which used _really_ short, looping, samples could be made to take up less room than you would shake a stick at. The mod formats are very strong when it comes to doing cool stuff to the samples, so all you need from a basic sample is an integer number of periods of each frequency component. Then you can simulate attack/decay using the mod instruction set and just loop the whole sample. Quite cool

This weeks pet peeve:
Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.
