Software News   Software News : Audio Evolution news
   posted by DaveAE on 4-Oct-2006 23:13:28 (5593 reads)
As of October 5th 2006, the world-wide distribution and publishing contract with Computer City has ended due to lack of payment. Also, a large price reduction was required to have a competitive pricing when Audio Evolution 5 is released early next year on Mac OSX and Windows.

This means that from now on, Audio Evolution 4 can be purchased for the incredibly low price of 49 euro (a 100 euro price drop!) from the author directly. Because of this price, the full version will be sent by email instead of on CD. For users of classic machines on OS3, the older Audio Evolution 3 is also available for only 25 euro (with limited support). For ordering information, please send an email to order@audio-evolution.com or visit the Audio Evolution homepage.



Although AE5 runs partly on OS4/X11 as well, some technical issues with wxWidgets on OS4/X11 must be resolved first before AE5 can be released on OS4. AE5 will feature multi-channel recording and the use of VST effects and/or Audio Units.

For AE4 users, a small update 4.0.9 can be found in the downloads section. It fixes an issue preventing it from running on newer kernels. It also includes copy and paste functionality in the MIDI remote setup window.

Kind regards,

Davy Wentzler

Distributors can be such a pain in the a**! I've had trouble with them in the past, non ppayment & the like. I hope this change works out for you Dave.

Are you saying that, if AE5 gets released for AOS4, we are going to be able to use VST?
Now that would be sweet

Nice Davy!
Seems like I can make that support buy now

So 4.0.x is the last fully native OS4 version?

No way, Teddy. The VST SDK would have to be ported to AOS4 first, which Steinberg will neither do nor allow. They don't plan to support Linux, much less AOS4.

It will be...when someone does a native wxWidgets port, along with native ports of anything else AE5 needs :)

Which is fair enough considering that people *still* cannot buy OS4 with hardware.

No, sorry, no VST or Audio Units on AmigaOS, it's not possible.

Currently, AE4/5 has been almost completely ported to wxWidgets except for the audio part. It also uses the libsndfile library to read different audio formats and handle endianness. I am using that already on the OS4/X11 port, so that's no problem. Furthermore, parts of eXtream will be used as the mix engine, so the only system dependant part would be talking to the audio drivers. I may use RtAudio for that, which supports ASIO and Core Audio (and ALSA for that matter), but I'll have to investigate that further. On OS4, I could just use eXtream.

FYI, I'm now working on eXtream again (which had been on hold since January when I started my port of AE) which will also benefit OS4.

Unless wxWidgets is ported to OS4/Reaction ofcourse, like has been said. It was either doing this or forgetting about AE at all on any platform. In this way, there is at least a chance that it may run on OS4/X11. The amount of effort to have two source trees for both 'platforms' is far too much for the returns it gives.

I hope the gets Dave some more sales.
The timing's typically off for me - I recently spent my music software budget on Logic Express which, at 85, is a very nice piece of software. Now, after a summer of festivals and parties, overdrafts and credit cards all at bursting point, I can barely afford to go for a pint.

Still, at under 35, I'll hopefully be able to rustle that up this side of Christmas

Does this mean I could run AE5 on both my A1 and Mac and, if so, would there be a deal for dual-platform purchasers?

Yes, although you need 2 executables. There will be a discount for dual or triple purchasers indeed.

@DaveAE

Thanks for the update. I hope we will see AE5 on OS4 at some point.

Rude!

@broadblues

Missing threads, performance and different behaviour in some respects. Without the threads, the same code compiles, links and starts. The timeline window looks reasonable already. The mixer window has major issues, but I haven't looked into that yet. All in all, it seems sluggish. I should try it under Linux as well, to see if a similar thing happens.

Yes, I presumed so, remembering now all those threads where you talked about that same issue. I asked my question without thinking it through(happens alot to me, lately )
Well, never mind, I'm all for live instruments anyways .

Dave, I wish you all the luck with AE5 on other platforms and I look forward to use your app, hopefully on AOS4 when it comes out.

Note that AE5 won't support VSTinstruments, just VST effects, since AE does not have a MIDI sequencer, so that would be useless.
