CHANGES:
  • Fixed a crash in the "Limit instead" code (Advanced Clipper).

    OLD CHANGES:
  • Removed (moved to Extreme Tweaker for possible future testing) some Stokkemask settings that had a bad effect on compliance. Good settings are 50% / 30% / 40 dB (without the 40 dB it should be fne too, but there's a bigger chance at overshoots at the bottom of the mask. 100% for the first value increases overshoots!!!!! 39 and 38 should be safe as well - but I haven't had time to measure those separately anymore. Anyway in the older versions this value was set to 0....... Setting it higher may cause an audio quality reduction.
  • Crash fixed
  • Stokkemask: Try I/Q Clipper mode, highs are coming out slightly too loud, due to LPF? Might be good enough... -> Idea doesn't work
  • Stokkemask: We don't care about CPU load, try adding more stages -> No effect
  • Stokkemask: Default back to 50% for safety - that way we don't have to worry about breaking older versions. And we still get 90% of the improvement that way.
  • More experimental stokkemask settings added.
  • Stokkemask: Improved further (looks about equally strict, but I can squeeze over 1 dB more anti-phase content through than with 9.02). NOTE: SETTINGS ARE DEFAULTING TO 9.02 BEHAVIOR BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW YET IF THE SIGNAL IS EQUALLY STRICT, AND I DON'T WANT SOMEONE TO GET FINED FOR HAVING STOKKEMASK OVERSHOOTS. To get the new behavior, set "New looseness 1" higher (50% should definitely be safe, I'm not sure about 100%), "New looseness 2" to 30%, and "Side level" to 40.
  • Improved Stokkemask - output is stricter (closer to the mask), so it has less impact on stereo separation. (*)
  • Memory usage reduced by about 12 MB

    (*) We need a measurement to make sure it's as tight as before. It probably is - but some testing is needed to make sure. I can measure it with my own analyser and with MpxTool, but neither gives a perfectly accurate result. Most importanty, I would like to know if setting the new "New looseness (experimental)" slider to 100% (0% is equal to previous versions) has any effect on compliance. Below 100% there's not really any difference in what I'm measuring, at 100% there is a small difference. ---> RESULT: 100% is bad, keep at 50. Then it's ok.


    PLANNED:
  • Stok: Remove overlap shortcut for stricter result (increases CPU).
  • Stok: Measure mask in every stage for stricter result (increases CPU).
  • Stok: Apply measured results in every stage for stricter result (increases CPU).
  • Stok: Replace L-R reduction in final stages by total volume reduction.
  • Stok: Figure out how to adjust shape at different sample rates -> Found correct Gaussian window sigma value instead, applied for both processing and display (which were set differently before!)
  • Stok: Replace "Looseness (sounds better)" by something that moves the mask up and down.
  • Stok: 1e stage only inner
  • Stok: More steps at end, needs to be both tighter and have less effect (is that last thing still needed???)
  • API: Audio signal VU meter, MPX output level setting, info about whether stream is good NOW.
  • Interview
  • Sneak peek
  • Video
  • MicroMPX SWEEP BUSY, waiting for feedback
  • Add Kantar support BUSY
  • Improve clipper sound 1-6 kHz area
  • DrawWave draws outside of screen in FM analyzer
  • The BIMP
  • Stok: Move start point to later stage?
  • Stok: Try reducing the audio level in the final stage - lowering highs has proven useless at that point. --> SEEMS TO WORK, but only do this as the last stage!
  • Update Paul Thompson and Bojcha presets
  • Include MicroMPX - for real now [22]
  • Add MicroMPX plugin licensing [22]
  • MicroMPX: highs idea BUSY -> Find beta testers TEST STOKKEMASK EFFECT TOMORROW
    -
  • RDS urgent issue
  • Increase 60%
  • Cntrct IN
  • Cntrct TM
  • Stokkemask: Measure TOMORROW
    -
  • Show warning when using MME with wrong sample rate
  • Test preset that causes buffer to run empty - why? --> Settings issue, maybe add a popup for this situation (buffer is slowly filling up or running empty)...
  • Bug report: Linux version uses 100% CPU on one thread, even in bypass mode (must be sound card thread?) -> Not here. Not sure what's going on.....
  • Test 64 bit sound card exception handling in ProppFrexx - that wasn't the problem... apparently
    -
  • Declipper: Put startup in system tray back in Declipper (at least in the Winamp plugin version).
  • RDS: EON: Support for other type of AF frequencies?
  • RDS: Support for AF method B
  • RDS: RT end at \n
  • Brian, NAB
  • MOBO
  • uMPX encoder/plugin: Sound card speed message
  • uMPX decoder: Add multicast subscribe
  • Add MagicRDS AF method B support

Hans, MacOS and Adobe Audition won't display the GUI in the VST 64bit version. Gives a grey container (but when I click around I can adjust parameters, but I don't know which one I'm tweaking.. ;-)).

Tested in Reaper too. Same result. The plugin is working, but displaying the GUI fails (it opens up with grey inner window).

Hi Patrick, is that version 9.02? I *had* fixed that (but haven't tested the final release again). :(

Working on something that takes time to test.... I hope to have a new beta before the end of the week again, with improved Stokkemask filtering (tighter, louder, wider).

It's not extremely important for most people, but here (Netherlands) it's mandatory to stay within the mask. With my latest code I can squeeze about 0.1 dB extra audio and 0.3 dB extra L-R audio (on average, L-R peaks are more than 1.5 dB louder) through, and it's so much tighter that that also leads to probably around 0.2-0.3 dB extra loudness. And it sounds better too.

But there are some negative side-effects that I need to fix before I can post something here.

Here is a follow-up question. For the release of the new version 9.0 there were still several points on the TODO list (see old thread). These have now suddenly disappeared from the agenda. What has become of all these points? Are they still at your backlog, or just no longer relevant?

There is always something that jumps in.

I think everything is still on the list. Stokkemask jumped to the top because of a combination of feedback that I received about it and the fact that the next Processing Freakday is next month ;)

Sorry for the off-topic but I have never seen an option to enable or disable the stokkemask on any other processor. Does it mean that all the Omnia / Orban / Wheatstone boxes always keep the signal within the mask? Or do they require further adjusting to be used in the Netherlands? Are you aware of other countries where you must use stokkemask?
