SoundBankster for MorphOS 3.6
« on: June 28, 2014, 05:59:33 AM »
SoundBankster, an audio mixing application for DJ enthusiast is available for immediate download here.

SoundBankster takes advantage of many native and exclusive components of the operating system like the new HID sensors API provided with the 3.6 release of MorphOS.

The HID sensors API allows many USB devices like DJ decks to directly drive the application. An internal event mapping editor is provided for easy wiring of the DJ deck controller to the user interface components of SoundBankster.

Another native and exclusive MorphOS component, Reggae is used to load and play audio. Its efficient design allows stutterless playback even under the worst load conditions 1. With a short 20 ms audio buffer and events flowing from Sensors API every 15ms, all audio effects are applied realtime with absolutely no lag.

Dual audio output is also possible via AHI units allowing headphone monitoring. This feature is only available for system with two audio outputs.

TinyGL, another native MorphOS components is used for the audio waveform rendering. If the system doesn't support 3D or lacks the resources needed, an optimised software fallback is provided.

SoundBankster needs nice chunk of available RAM to work. It is advised to run SoundBankster with system equiped with at least 512MB ram.

SoundBankster features:

  • Support for the new HID Sensors API of MorphOS 3.62
  • Waveform rendering with TinyGL
  • Reggae support for decoding and rendering audio
  • Memory playback for stutterless audio rendering1
  • 20ms audio buffer for realtime effects
  • Beat detection algorithm
  • Accurate track pitch
  • Filters
  • Loops
  • Playlist import/export with ranking and BPM databases
  • Unlimited recording in WAVE format
  • Heavily threaded for non blocking user interface
  • Supports dual audio output via AHI units
  • MUI interface
  • All this in a packed 100KB executable
  • and a lot more...

SoundBankster is the fruit of many years of research and development and is freely available for use under the BY-NC-ND/4.0 International Creative Common licence.

1 Long Forbid/Permit excluded.
2 Some USB device needs dedicated driver for best use.

Very cool.

Now THIS is totally within the Amiga spirit! A Media app for a next gen Amiga OS, what more could we ask for?

 OK, maybe a HD-Rec update, MIDI support for Digibooster 3, but other than that... ;)

(EDIT: Oh and the fact that it supports DJ hardware really brings me back to the classic Amiga days when you could plug in all sorts of media devices into your machine to expand its horizons!)
