Latest version - Beta 006 (August 3 2019)

Here's a new beta. It has taken quite a while, as you can see I've mainly been busy integrating a new feature called "PhoneBooster", which isn't yet available for public testing.

TODO's
  • "By default, the streaming volume was zero. It took me a moment to find this control and turn it up."
  • "The blocking issue: I don't see a way to pass program metadata to Live365. The BUTT encoder picks up the information from a text file generated by RadioDJ. The metadata is then added to the stream in near real-time. StereoTool will need to read the same file and update the stream periodically to match the "now playing" content."
  • AGC meter doesn't move in certain combinations of settings (screenshot coco)
  • Add setting for AGC side chain bass band
  • Load/Save presets via web interface. First for built-in presets.
  • Load/save presets via web interface. With up/download

Standalone 64bit does not start at all. beta005 starts fine.
and.. what's "ABDP expose more strictness values (especially for mids)" ?

You could already control strictness for bass and highs clipping, now also for mids. I've also lowered the default a bit because the effect seems to be very very small. (Old hard-coded value would have been 3).

New beta 007 coming now.

ST 64 Bit Standalone v935-Beta008 under Windows 10

Cosmetic Bug: Normal Output in uMPX configuration window?

ST 64 Bit Standalone 935 Release under Windows 10

Issue: Placing ST in bypass and returning to normal processing operation quickly (<3 seconds) causes major headaches to audio synchronous I/O sync options. End up with buffer overruns and underruns for both FM, Normal Out or Both (varies in options, severity or time for issue to occur. There also appears to be display info showing code?

Option Request: Can we add a warning (Are you sure you wish to go into Bypass Mode?) to provide a safety net in case a stray mouse click places a production machine in bypass by mistake (or while clicking on the tray icon via high latency remote access option.

Q: Is getting audio from Input #2 interface into audio pipeline to be heard on LQLL along with the main Input still on your to-do list?? Currently only the main Input is present on LQLL.

Thanks!

Hi Rossco,

In short: Many of these things should be solved soon when the I/O framework is replaced. Which will hopefully be soon.
Quote:

That's on purpose. When you enable MicroMPX, similar to when you enable the FM output sound card, there's suddenly a choice for what to send to the Normal output. It's not very logical though, and we'll probably change that behavior in the future, basically in the next big redesign of everything.

I/O will be replaced completely very soon, so I'm not going to fix bugs that have been in it for a long time already. That being said, that NAN thing is a real problem. Does that happen when you quickly go in and out of Bypass?????

That is probably a good idea.

Hm. Same answer as above: I/O will be replaced soon, and this should be fixed when that's the case.

Hans - Do you have ideas on how you'd like for the nowplaying.txt dynamic data to be formatted for MP3 metadata streaming insertion? It seems that the simple encoders only require:
Code:
artist - title
Thoughts?

i asked once, but let's try again.
Limiter for normal output should be using Bass clipper from ABDP, but it does not. Why?

It does use it but not in same way as in clipper mode.
