The Open Beta Test of DigiBoosterPro has started today.
For this purpose we have published the program DigiRoller at http://www.digiboosterpro.de
We wish to get as much users as possible for this Open Beta Test to avoid future problems.
DigiRoller is a standalone DBM module player and renderer. It is released for free as a previev of sound synthesis technology used in incoming DigiBooster 3. With DigiRoller any DBM music module can be played or saved to AIFF/WAVE file. There is also benchmark mode which allows for estimating DigiBooster 3 player engine speed on different hardware. DigiRoller is being released for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS 1.4/2.x and runs on all hardware supported by these operating systems (with exception of 68020+ requirement for AmigaOS 3 version).
The key feature of the new DigiBooster 3 player engine is AHI independency. The new engine does not rely on AHI resampling and mixing. Using own algorithms allows for better quality, for example track mixing is done with 24-bit precision. Breaking AHI dependency also opens a way for making high quality DigiBooster 3 module replayers for non-Amiga operating systems like Windows, Linux or MacOS.
DigiRoller uses AHI as a playback backend only, to stay compatible with as many sound hardware as possible.
