Software News   Software News : APC&TCP: DigiBosterPro Open Beta starts today
   posted by AndreasM on 30-May-2009 14:52:26 (1897 reads)
The Open Beta Test of DigiBoosterPro has started today.

For this purpose we have published the program DigiRoller at http://www.digiboosterpro.de

We wish to get as much users as possible for this Open Beta Test to avoid future problems.

Click read more



DigiRoller is a standalone DBM module player and renderer. It is released for free as a previev of sound synthesis technology used in incoming DigiBooster 3. With DigiRoller any DBM music module can be played or saved to AIFF/WAVE file. There is also benchmark mode which allows for estimating DigiBooster 3 player engine speed on different hardware. DigiRoller is being released for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS 1.4/2.x and runs on all hardware supported by these operating systems (with exception of 68020+ requirement for AmigaOS 3 version).

The key feature of the new DigiBooster 3 player engine is AHI independency. The new engine does not rely on AHI resampling and mixing. Using own algorithms allows for better quality, for example track mixing is done with 24-bit precision. Breaking AHI dependency also opens a way for making high quality DigiBooster 3 module replayers for non-Amiga operating systems like Windows, Linux or MacOS.

DigiRoller uses AHI as a playback backend only, to stay compatible with as many sound hardware as possible.

When you use DigiRoller as a player, that's obvious the speed will be 1.0, as player plays in realtime. To measure engine speed, select 'benchmark' mode with the cycle gadget. The module is then rendered, but not played.

About the crash - I've tested OS4 version on Pegasos 2 with AmigaOS 4.1 and have not encountered this bug. I will need more details to fix it, it may be an AHI bug as well.

No crashes here on A1 G4@1Ghz.

I used the following module for the benchmark

http://aminet.net/package/mods/techn/XIt-DJNick.lha

Mix frequency: 44.1Khz

Tracks: 14

Real Time: 00:00:05

Module Time: 00:03:56

Speed: x44.94

The speed varies but is consistently just under x45.

Tested on the same track http://aminet.net/package/mods/techn/XIt-DJNick.lha

AOS4.1 on peg2 (1ghz cpu), aos4 native version:

output AIFF file (to ram:), Freq 44.1 = ~44.xx
output WAVE file (to ram:), Freq 44.1 = ~44.xx
output Playback, Freq 44.1 = ~1.0x
output benchmart, Freq 44.1 = ~47.xx


output AIFF file (to ram:), Freq 48 = ~38.xx
output WAVE file (to ram:), Freq 48 = ~37.xx
output Playback, Freq 48 = ~1.0x
output benchmart, Freq 48 = ~43.xx


MOS2.2 on peg2 (1ghz cpu), mos native version:

output AIFF file (to ram:), Freq 44.1 = ~42.xx
output WAVE file (to ram:), Freq 44.1 = ~41.xx
output Playback, Freq 44.1 = ~1.0x
output benchmart, Freq 44.1 = ~43.xx


output AIFF file (to ram:), Freq 48 = ~38.xx
output WAVE file (to ram:), Freq 48 = ~37.xx
output Playback, Freq 48 = ~1.0x
output benchmart, Freq 48 = ~40.xx


ps. Krashan, greets for the :) Roller looks very logical (for me) and simply as must be without any addictions. Looks like DigiBooster itself will be just cool :)

@elwood

I asked a friend for some tests on his Sam 440. The results of these tests seem to indicate that it is a bug in AHI or Sam 440 AHI driver. Please repeat this test to verify:
1. Render any module to an AIFF file.
2. Copy this file to AUDIO: in shell window: "copy [filename] AUDIO:".
On friend's Sam the same crash happens when the whole file is copied (played),or copy is stopped with CTRL-C. It means the bug is located outside DigiRoller, as my program does exactly the same: it opens AUDIO: and writes data to it, then closes it.
