Software News   Software News : Audio Evolution 4 for AROS released
   posted by DaveAE on 1-Aug-2010 20:44:06 (3620 reads)
The popular multi-track audio recording and editing software Audio Evolution 4 is now available for AROS! With almost identical features to the AmigaOS4 version, it allows non-linear and non-destructive editing of 16-bit audio, real-time effect processing, automation, multi-track playback and much more. Visit the Audio Evolution website for more information, download the demo or buy it now for only 49 euro! Note that after September 1st, 2010, the price will go up to 59 euro as you can read below.



A big thank you to nikolaos who set up the 'Audio Evolution Bounty' website where people could participate in a pre-order program to show their support for an AROS port. To get enough people to pre-order, the idea was raised and implemented to set the pre-order price to 49 euro and a 10 euro raise afterwards.

Although the number of pre-orders for the AROS version wasn't sufficient, together with a MorphOS poll which showed 32 potential sales, I decided to give both ports a go. The MorphOS version compiles as well, but due to the lack of MorphOS hardware I'm waiting for the Mac G4 (or 5?) release to be able to test and finish the MorphOS port.

Great work !

We need more Developers making their Applications Multi-Platform.

Isolation doesnt help anyone !

Isolation ? Its timeconsuming so not strange many programs arent multiplatform. Ofcourse depends on the software how easy it is to port. Just see jahc when trying to fix his software to work on aros etc. But ofcourse for the enduser its lovely multiplatform :)

@kicko

of course its time consuming and developers need different Hardware also, but they get a much bigger user base and the program is probably more bug free.

I agree there. The most problematic part is that you are bound to the API that all platforms support (lowest common denominator) unless the developer is prepared to spend a lot of time on platform-specific code. You quickly get yourself into the choices of MUI vs. Reaction etc. Luckily, AE4 was just using gadtools and basic intuition with just one exception (a Reaction image class) which immediately caused lots of extra work on AROS since a workaround had to be written.

I am very pleased at least with the AmiDevCpp environment, which allows me to edit and build for OS4, MOS and AROS from within one application, safely and comfortably on my Windows machine. That definately makes maintaining different platforms much easier. I can recommend it to everyone.

LOL Yea right "Multiplatform" you call supporting AmigaOS,MorpgOS and AROS multiplatform ??? how many extra potential customers would that generate? 1000?

if we want multiplatform we should get Qt framework on our platform. It's actually something Hyperion should look into if they want to make development attractive on AmigaOS and on top of that eventually a new Workbench that makes it easer to develop UI stuff on. Really hard for a outsider to get in to developing on AmigaOS.

@Muffin

I think he meant multiplatform in a more narrow scope. Multiplatform between the all the 3 "Amiga" compatible systems.

Your idea would maybe be a good start to broaden out view though.

@Manu and Muffin

Yes, but you know how things work in Amigaland. If you TALK about porting QT, all you'll get are harsh comment from the "no, please don't bring alien things into AmigaOS, otherwise AmigaOS won't be AmigaOS anymore, since it's not the Amiga way" and so on. If you DO a QT port instead and release it, you'll get dozens of new applications, many coders saying thank you, and everyone here will claim you their hero. So, if anyone is interested in porting QT, please port QT.

Yes i know, i couldn't resit .

I hope that one day there will be a proper developer programme with an official website where you could find everything you need in terms of documentation,turorial & environment set up etc (like the Qt site) but i guess it's a bit early since Hyperion recently got definite control over AmigaOS and its future and of cause it's a money issue as well.

@paolone

But with QT, you'll lose all the identity of AmigaOS and its advantages in the process, especially if you plan to have QT as your main OS toolkit. If you only plan to have it as some emergency toolkit for some couple QT apps (because you're unable to port them properly), then it's a different matter, but still a poor solution (just slightly better than using X11).

But what's the point of having some sub-standard posix+QT clone, when you can have a real one that works properly? The main reason to use AmigaOS nowadays resides in what makes it unique, and that includes its GUI in particular. The idea of abandoning the OS identity and strengths for some random toolkit is just admitting you're behind the others, and tha you can just follow their tracks blindly. In that case, you might wonder why you develop an OS in the first place.

Recorded my first few tracks with AE tonight on AROS. My Sound Blaster Live Audigy card seems to work fine with it. Just thought maybe some of you have the same card so now you know it works.

@Fab

What do you mean by losing the "identity" ? look or the feeling? Qt can be made to look like the GUI in AmigaOS. We have MUI that is widely used and no one is complaining that you loose identity by using it.

I understand that you get a certain trade of by using another framework and i like the feel of the Amiga GUI. But i also believe that we have the core of the Amiga OS to thank for that, MUI/Reaction e.t.c gets the same snappy feeling and i believe that a proper port of Qt would benefit from our OS.

The main reason (for me at least )to have Qt on AmigaOS is to have the benefit to develop for more than one platform, we can't afford to alienate our self from the rest of the world (should we scrap OpenGL and develop something of our own?) .To me it's not about to be able to port Qt related stuff to amiga its the other way around and to have a more rapid development API. And no it shouldn't be a main OS toolkit, just an option MUI.
