Announcement   Announcement : Introducing myself and BarsnPipes OS4
   posted by alfa on 12-Dec-2005 10:05:43 (5381 reads)
Hello community,
I'm new here ... but I'm only here new ...

Because I'm new here, I want to introduce me for such friends, which never ever have had heared from me.
I'm a pensioner of illnes since near 8 years. Before I was busy as a church misician and later as a pastor in the evangelical church of thuringia in germany. With a AMIGA I'm working since 1990 (A1200 wasn't yet born).


Never I was rich enough to buy me Bars&Pipes for my musical work, but as the Blue Ribbon Inc. in 1995 was overtaken by Microsoft Inc. (they invented the Direct Audio - the base of the DirectX) Bars&Pipes was given away for free.
This was the signal to me, immeditately to get Bars&Pipes. From the beginning I had the wish to program for this incredible good tool ... unfortunately I never had the time to learn programming.
As I became ill in 1996 I had the time ... and started to program. In 1998 BarsnPipes friends asked Microsoft, to buy the source of Bars&Pipes Pro from them with the intention to furtherdevelop it. The answer was: You can get the source for 1.000.000 US$ ... clear: NO ... because nobody had the money to give such a big amount for a so rare used program.
I by myself made a homepage (www.alfred-j-faust.de) with the only theme: BarsnPipes. In that time I mailed with the "father" of BarsnPipes - Todor Fay -, and pleased him all to do, that BarsnPipes don't vanish in NIRWANA.
In Decembre 2000 he surpriced the community with the message, he want to give the source of Bars&Pipes free to some volunteers, which are willing to prepare all material to a recompileable state. I was one of the 7 lucky who had received it.
After hard working of 1/2 year I could release the source with the authorization of Todor Fay. Immediately after that I started a own further-developing line "BarsnPipes New".
The most helpful tool I use for my work is the brilliant GoldED by Dietmar Eilert. I'm using it since ca. 1993, and had updated up to version 6.
Because I'm now a pensioner, I've not the money to update away ...

NB.: I'm working on the base of Freeware, because of the incredible big gift of the source (worth 1.000.000 US$).

In 2003/04 I made a port of BarsnPipes to MorphOS on PEGASOS. (The hardware was sponsored by a dutch/english company around Ron v. Herk (genesis)).
In 2005 I signed a loan-agreement with Hyperion Inc. for a try of a port to 0S4.
From April - Septembre 05 I worked on a port to AROS (not yet finished).
At the end of Octobre I luckily received a by-Hyperion-sponsored A1-board for my OS4 port of BarsnPipes. Since that time I'm hardly working (near 8 hours each day). And the work is growing forward. BarsnPipes is in a relative stable state, and if all is going well, I'll try to publish a pre-release before XMas.

Hopeful this was not to much text ...

Alfred Faust

I'm really glad you're here, and I know I'm not alone.
The music community of OS4 has been growing well, and
I think your coming here can only help that more.

Welcome Alfred, I'm suprised you have not joined us here before. Your work with B&P has been great. And Alfed is not kidding about the $1mil price tag. I still have the email from the microsoft exec with the their $$$ request. Luckily one of the old Blue Ribbon guys (Brian Thomas if I recall) found out about the "deal", pulled some strings behind the scenes at MS and got the code released. It was a good day. It was another great day when Alfred stepped up to do so much work on it. The original code wouldn't even completly compile with SAS/C when we first got it. There was much work to do.

Kudos to Alfred.

Wonderful introduction Alfred! All I can do is repeat Lyle Haze.
His words say it all...

wow, what a lot of warm and hearty replys ....

I'm very very much enjoyed ... and somewhat wordless ...
Thank you very much.
The biggest thank to a programmer is, when its work is used.

Kindly
Alfred

It's great to have another developer join the ranks. Especially one which has managed to keep one of my favourite pieces of software alive. Kudos!
