Falasol Timbre 1.1.0 sp1

A small but important update to the version 1.1.0.
Bugs fixed:

  • App won’t run on WinXP (OS not supporting 256*256 ico format)
  • Crash when holding F6 key for a while (threading bug)

This update was possible because of Johnny Pumphandle who found and reported the above issues. I salute you!
I’d especially like to recommend his MusicByComputer blog: http://www.johnnypumphandle.com/johnny/MBC.htm.

For those of you who see any bugs or just would like to share some thoughts on the project – don’t be shy!

    If you play in loop, and decide to create new file, all settings change back, but not the loop – the new sound is repeated.
    Besides I would appreciate the possibility of changing the shape of the wave not by the use of those slides, but by clicking on the wave.

    The loop thing – I’m not sure I really understand it. So let me explain the idea behind it :)
    Desired behavior is to play the sound based on current parameters. Each time the whole sample is recreated from scratches. In result:
    – you can start the loop and modify the settings when playing – they are going to be used right in the next iteration
    – if you use noise parameters – the result will be different each time :)
    Now when you create a new file while playing the loop, all settings are reset to defaults and so is the sound which is rendered based on them.
    Please let me know if that’s clear enough or there are still some issue.

    For the wave shape – I’m thinking hard on that :)
    In the next version there will be few more shape parameters added. Later I’m planning to implement a ‘wave drawing’ feature. I’m investigating 2 options:
    a) point-to-point B├ęzier curves
    b) ms-paint-like sketching
    Both approaches have their pros & cons.

    Thank you for meaningful feedback!
    This is exactly what I value :)

    New month had begun, time for another experiments episode…

    To the loop – I mean, that I think, that while creating new file all settings are reset to the defaults, so the same should be with the loot and the loot delay.

    Now I get it…
    That makes sense – loop should be stopped and delay reset.
    Will be fixed in next release :)

    great! One more thing! Problems with acces to the webpage through the mobile;) Think about those, who use the internet not only in ‘traditional’ form.

    I was considering that, but right now the mobile audience is not my target scope ;P
    The main goal of the site is to promote the application. Therefore I focus on the platform where the application actually runs -> Windows PC.

    For the mobile folks I suggest to connect via RSS channel:
