Version 8.1.0.0

 

 

Important note about rebuilding of the container application

 

In order to optimize some of the features internal to the component, we were forced to slightly change the internal architecture of the component itself: for this reason, when upgrading from version 6.1 or lower, there is the need to rebuild the EXE file of the container application before redistributing the upgrade to your final customers: there is no need to change the original source code.

 

 

New features

 

Added the possibility to render input channels of an ASIO device directly to the output channels of the same device

 

New methods

 

ASIO.DeviceListenInputStart

ASIO.DeviceListenInputPause

ASIO.DeviceListenInputResume

ASIO.DeviceListenInputStop

 

 

Version 8.0.0.0

 

New features

 

Added support for displaying the spectral view of the sound waveform inside the waveform analyzer
Added support for generating bitmaps of the spectral view of the sound waveform
Added the possibility to apply a basic filter (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and band-stop) to an occurring recording session
Added the possibility to apply a basic filter (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and band-stop) to a completed recording session
Added support for storing the latest recording session into a ZIP file, eventually protected through AES encryption
Added support for recording sound files stored inside ZIP files
Added basic support for ZIP files management
Added the possibility to emulate the "Listen to this device" feature of the Windows control panel
Added support for receiving most of the component's generated events through a callback instead of standard events

New features

 

Improved loading speed

 

New events

 

InputFormatsAvailable

 

SPECIAL NOTE TO DEVELOPERS: in order to speed up the creation of the form containing the recorder control, we had the need to make a slight modification to the internal architecture of the multimedia engine and of the recorder control. After this modification, the following methods will not be immediately available and your application will have to wait for the new InputFormatsAvailable event before calling them:

- GetWmaEncodingBitratesCount

- GetWmaEncodingBitrate

- GetSupportedRecordFormatsCount

- GetSupportedRecordFormatDesc

- GetWmaEncodingVBRQualitiesCount

- GetWmaEncodingVBRQuality

 

The usage of the new InputFormatsAvailable event is shown inside the following updated samples:

- SimpleMp3Rec

- SimpleOggRec

- SimpleWavRec

- SimpleWmaRec

 

If your application shouldn't be using the mentioned methods, there should be nothing to be worried about and you won't have to modify your code.
