Latest version - Beta 043 (February 24 2021)

Downloads
Changes/bugfixes
  • Bug fix: Singleband compressor in Analog mode: Output levels above 0 dB did not always work.
  • STX: Entering IP address on screen fails, keyboard disappears. Merge needed.
  • True Bass: Added on/off setting for Sub Bass Boost to main page
  • Highest vs lowest highs: Created separate setting for non-legacy behavior, difference is too big.
  • Update presets
  • Add J.C. preset
  • Update STX/SST presets
  • STX disable most warnings/errors, at least on front panel
  • MicroMPX D license
  • STX: Login mechanism (at least add password reset/disable): Add reset. Test. Plus: Add "logged in as", then probably disable for this release?
  • Update version numbers
  • uMPX library issue? (Does not reproduce here, CPU load problem?) - No, was external issue

TODO's
  • Stereo Tool Enterprise fixed buffers after changing sample rate, ASIO input channels. To be tested -> BROKEN, wait for update.
  • Disable login for release
  • Remove soname for D version
  • Check for printfs in uMPX library
  • Command line version: Show error if .sts file cannot be loaded.
  • Check libVLC crash behavior (UEC)
  • STX wait for mu fix
  • Release
  • Highest vs lowest highs setting issue (see post Bojcha)
  • Updated Windows non-ASIO latency behavior to be more resilient on systems with high CPU load. To be tested.
  • Updated PortAudio to latest version (might fix Mac audio issue, possibly also some Wasapi issues)
  • Increased Wasapi/MME/Kernel Streaming latency setting (use ASIO for low latency, this may be more stable) - feedback wanted
  • Improved Leif's Highs Gap Protection in non-legacy mode (was introduced in 9.63, but broken in several ways).
  • Stereo Tool Enterprise: Several threading/sample rates issues solved, hopefully no bugs are left.
  • Add way to override sound card block sizes (at least for Linux, probably also useful for Windows)
  • Login: Per session
  • Login: Update editable status
  • Login: Hide things
  • Login: Show warning when trying to change something without access
  • Put backup file upload in web interface for MicroMPX
  • GTS
  • STX: Edit whitelist on unit
  • Remote jrtplib
  • Create/include BIMP presets
  • Stereo Tool Enterprise: Think of good name
  • Stereo Tool Enterprise: Switching between devices/channels can go wrong
  • Stereo Tool Enterprise: Sample rate mismatch detection is not ok for ASIO inputs
  • Pi PiMP stand alone BUSY
  • Pi AM stand alone
  • ABE GUI BUSY
  • Release
  • Add "Combp phase"-like test tone to uMPX (FB chat Cleiton Araújo)
  • Stereo Tool new I/O framework: Add bypass mode
  • MicroMPX: Silence detector with backup player (timeout - threshold - time ok before going back to stream)
  • Clipper detect where highs are killed and compensate for that
  • Block multiple instances (avoid running multiple Stereo Tool instances with the same settings)
  • Later: MicroMPX: Export version, bitrate and redundancy info in webinterface and library
  • Later: MicroMPX: Export user messages in library
  • Some pages remain visible when you're logged out (password protection)
  • Later: STX: Overview page with meters
  • Monday: Fill new site BUSY
  • Monday: Pens BUSY
  • Tuesday: Make multi-instance version available
  • Tuesday: Add SST multi-instance interface
  • DSP code - on hold
  • MicroMPX decoder 2nd port number - with pull-down menu, and indices.
  • Stereo Tool priorities: Check what prio 15 things are
  • LiquidSoap/Centova setup manual, maybe add some features
  • Website BUSY
  • Support Contract
  • Improve Advanced Limiter shape (Bojcha) -> Problem is not what it seemed to be! There's a memory problem between chunks of audio, solution is to keep track of what happened in the previous block, and keep the previous audio.
  • Improve Advanced Bass Distortion Protection
  • Compressor with curve drawer
  • Disable stereo widening when detecting low bitrate MP3s
  • Add a checkbox under Delossifier that makes Absolute Highs fix the highs.
  • STX: Verify high frequency tilt behavior
  • Put Declipper presets in ST. Selecting one with "APPLY" overrules all existing settings.
  • BS412 bug: For Quality > 100, the compressors are off by a few dB (probably 1.5x or 2/3rds).
  • How to synchronize HD? THU
    -
  • Measure HifiBerry stereo separation -> Improved from 35 to 55 dB. Make RC work with Ignore high frequencies -> Later
  • Loudness project
  • Tom aan de Stegge remarks email 30 september 20:23 - change many defaults
    -
  • Support rewindowing with different Quality/Size settings. Will give better HPF performance and make lower CPU load possible, and PPM patch points.
  • Linux command line version with AES67 input so output can be streamed - seems to be useful... Other options (run a script for the output) might be easier.
  • Finish 9 - final uMPX file name issue -> In next 9 update.
  • PhoneBooster make multi-threaded if needed (it probably is, esp. for Pi)
  • PhoneBooster make Pi version
  • MicroMPX needs exception handling, just in case.
  • WatchCat replace files instead of placing them elsewhere. For playout systems.
  • WatchCat add CMD /C
  • Thimeo School
  • ABDP remove stuff that's no longer needed? BUSY for low CPU
  • Optimize ABDP
  • Input and output gain for command line version (like for sound card)
  • Dynamic adjustment of priorities
  • Sooth effect
  • AES67: Add WheatNet
  • Installer: Make installer aware of programs like MediaMonkey, AIMP, .....
  • HD delay
  • Documentation: "Processing" page contains all kinds of BS412 info - why?
  • Declipper L/R noise
  • Declipper handle resampled audio better (upsample, find oversampling spikes, then detect based on what remains)
  • Console version: Read sample rate and bit size from WAV header
  • # bands selections should allow option to insert a band instead. Or ask what to do when you change it.
  • AES67 thread affinities and priorities
  • Add resampler

Changes/bugfixes
  • Save passwords ONLY to .ini file
  • Mac builds are now signed for Catalina
  • SST error for bad license was not visible

  • MicroMPX library: removed C++11 dependency, added void* for user info for callbacks.
  • MicroMPX: Encoder was not enabled in FM Professional EVENT license?
  • MicroMPX: Encoder bug in keyframes fixed, for all MicroMPX versions. Could cause some (very soft, -60 dB or so) noise at the start of keyframes.
  • MicroMPX: Encoder bug in Huffman table transport fixed, for all MicroMPX versions. Very slightly improves the encoding.
  • STX and MicroMPX web interface: Shrunk everything to 80%, waiting for feedback (maybe it's too much?)

There is a new WatchCat beta!
Wooo! I'll definitely be messing with it soon. Thanks for the update!

EDIT: I tried installing a few times, and kept getting this error. Win10x64 20H2

EDIT2: Solved, thanks!

Saw it here as well, re-uploading with the correct DLL included now. Give it 2 minutes...

Edit: These are loooong minutes.. nearly there.

Done! Last update (bigger windows, when they open they are way too small now) wasn't yet included in this one, that will probably also come tomorrow.

Alright, now I'm getting strange tones that I assume are supposed to be only in demo mode. However, upon loading a preset with everything disabled, it still occurs. Does WatchCat think I'm using some unlicensed feature? I'm certain the pre and post-processing effects are disabled.

It would be handy for this information to be in the error log. Specifically regarding whether it's trying to apply settings without the proper license.

edit: Here's what it looks like in a linear spectrogram.

Does that mean we can run multiple instances on Linux/Jack?

Hans, do you already know approximately when you want to provide PhoneBooster as a plugin variant (similar to the declipper) or integrate it into StereoTool? I would have some use cases and test cases for it, but for that I would need the whole thing as a plugin and not as a separate program.

Windows for now, but that would be a good next step. (Well you can already run multiple intstances? But this is 1 process with an overview screen etc).

How is the way to use as multiple instances?

Actually no, we can't really run more than one instance in Linux/Jack. Simply because a) the jack client name, which must be unique, is fixed to "stereotool" (and I don't like messing with the hex editor to change letters), abd b) all settings are stored in ~/stereotool.rc (or similar), so will get overriden bei whichever instances closes last. That gives funny results on startup. That's why some of us asked for command line options for the GUI on linux to sepcify jack client name and sts file to load.

But having multiple instances in ONE gui would be better, of course.
