Eagleplayer 2.05 Released





Author: Jan Blumenthal & Henryk Richter


Eagleplayer 2.06: Download


Features:

General:
supports more than 150 music formats including most common sample formats (including CDDA, AIFF, WAV, Datatype, raw formats...)
completely hardware-independent replay system, redirecting the sound signal via custom 'amplifiers' to the audio hardware
supports toccata.library for Toccata, Melody and Prelude sound cards
extremely fast mixing routines
currently supports up to 64 custom programs, e.g. amplifiers,user-interfaces, analyzers, scopes, external depackers, listviews, managers etc.

Sound Features:
carefully and extensively adapted playroutines. nearly all of them support volume and balance, and most common players support the modular amplifier system
replays with 8, 14, and 16 bit resolution (depending on the hardware)
supports free scalable mono, stereo and surround replay
replay speed can be controlled easily, including pitch for several sound formats
music-fadein and fadeout
plays from fastram

System:
supports all common system features, such as ARexx, commodity, appwindow, iconify, asynchronous online help, font-sensivity, pubscreens, hotkey...
supports xpk, xfd, powerpacker, imploder, crunchmania, lh.library and more formats for decrunching and any type of archive may be accessed like a directory
is highly system-compliant and uses heavy internal multitasking
external programs (players, amplifiers, engines) are loaded when needed and removed automatically
CyberGraphX/Picasso are directly supported by some scopes and user interfaces
configuration via configfile, tooltype and commandline arguments
allows timer.device, CIA and VBlank playspeed timing
does not interfere with modem use

GUI:
easy and comfortable configuration that covers innumerous details - window-positions, player and engine settings, current module, each internal and external option will be saved globally with a single action
features different graphical user interfaces with custom boopsi gadgets in the default configuration, some windows accept custom background patterns, multicolour graphical user interfaces up to truecolor (see screenshots)
status information scroller
module info includes playtime calculation for soundformats like Protracker, Oktalyzer, SonicArranger, Jamcracker, DigiBooster and most sample formats
very comfortable handling: e.g. module selecting and directory changing directly using the pulldown-menu

Custom:
random module selection directly at startup
offers a powerful module database, and loads modules lists from nearly all other music players - lists can be handled like normal subdirectories
features the fastest FFT spectrum analyzer ever optimized for 68040/68060 processors. it supports lots of stunning diplay modes.
doublebuffering-function for continuous replay of modules by immediate loading of the next module
the instruments of a soundmodule can directly be replayed and saved in various formats (RAW, IFF, AIFF, WAVE)
can save most protracker-clones in protracker format
supports module ripping, which can be either directed to an interface to ExoticRipper, or to an own ripper.
supports loading of Sound/Noise/Protracker/Startrekker/ Audiosculpture songfiles (that stuff with external samples on ST-00..ST-99 disks)
supports direct Aminet-CD mod archive browsing

Objection noted. The default configuration doesn't load any of the mixing Amplifiers. I was trying to address both extremes of the Amiga range, so that the default config will not overburden plain 68000 Amigas while you can enable all the bells and whistles on higher end machines. The next release will load 8 Bit Amplifier at low priority by default to support multichannel modules right out of the box.

Tip: keep your "config" drawer when updating EP.

The info window will not give you an accurate output when you have a localized system. I didn't update the catalogs.

A demo video how to set up EP for best possible performance and/or sound quality is available:

AmigaSystem I get to the AHI amplifier prefs, but I don't have a UAE option there. Is it any WinUAE option or maybe the AHI version you use?

You need to install the WinUAE AHI Driver (separate download, IIRC). I didn't get it to work on my first try. Nevertheless, you can use the UAE toccata Emulation (WinUAE, FS-UAE), either with the AHI Amplifier or the Toccata Amplifier. The latter is way less resource hungry but of course that hardly matters on UAE.

The toccata.library is available on Aminet.

I use Eagle Player for years and its great. So i use the new 2.05 without any problems.
My only question... is it possible to play Audio CD´s direct from a Music CD ?

I guess not, right ? Thank you anyway for the great Eagleplayer !

replaced the whole config folder from the "new" version 2.05 by my config folder
from the old version 2.05b2 i already had installed. and still: does not play .xm!
see attachment. so keeping configuration is pointless. it's no use at all.

@nibbler: are you the same user nibbler from german worldofplayers boards?

Yes, I see you've got it, but I don't. I think you must have added it from here? https://github.com/noname22/serial-u.../AHI/uae.audio
