GramoFile Change Log
- Included semun definition that disappeared from glibc2.1 headers. Bart
Warmerdam was the first to submit this to the Debian Bug Tracking system.
- Allow piping the signal processing's output to any command (MP3
encoders!), thanks to Geoff Clare. See README for details.
- Settings for filtering are now remembered within one run, which makes
it much easier to try slight variations in the settings. Patch by
- New convert-to-mono (=average-channels) filter, also by James Tappin.
- James Tappin also provided an alternative way of interpolation for the
CMF-II, using an L1 norm linear fit. It's much slower; you can compile
it in by defining FANCY_FILL in the beginning of signpr_cmf2.c.
- Reverted curses to ncurses per default, should now compile fine on SuSE.
For the old curses, change $LIBS in the Makefiles and use -DOLD_CURSES.
- Keith Refson sent a scandir() replacement function for Solaris; see the
README for info on how to use it.
- For byte-swapped systems, the length-fields in the .wav header are
now byte-swapped too; patch also by Keith Refson.
- FreeBSD patches by Juergen Lock.
- Applied fix for a buffering deadlock at the end of recording, also by
- James Tappin ported Dave Platt's out-of-phase tick detection (see v1.3)
to the `old' CMF filter; search for TEST_DAVE_PLATT in signpr_cmf.c.
- Fixed bug in the parameter screen of the double median filter.
- Signal Processing 30-50% faster, thanks to a few "old programmers'
tricks" provided by Dave Platt.
- Fix for computation of file offsets and -lengths for long files in
bplay, and 12 bit/sample should now work correctly, too. Patch by Ralf
- Should compile & run on IRIX (and maybe others), too. Joshua Weage sent
me a patch, which I interpreted a little more generally. More info in
the README file.
- `Determining of track separation points' is now called simply
- Totally new track location algorithm that should work well in far more
cases than you're used to ;-) Read more in Tracksplit2.txt.
- Should compile OK with egcs; patch by Daniel Kobras.
- Considerable speed improvement in Signal Processing (and Track Splitting,
too) by using the stdio functions, patch provided by Axel Kohlmeyer.
(Why didn't anyone tell me speed(fread)>>speed(read) before..?)
- Deleting filters in Filter Selection screen now also works on the console
(using the R key), again thanks to Axel Kohlmeyer. (I'm always in X ;)
- Info-screen after recording, great idea of Richard Robinson.
- Dave Platt reported that most ticks are out-of-phase, so tick detection
should look at the left-minus-right (difference) signal. I've programmed
this in signpr_cmf2.c (search for TEST_DAVE_PLATT) but not tested it;
it's not used by default. If you like, you may experiment with it - and
tell me your findings.
- Added variable median (interpolation) length to the Conditional
Median Filter, and called it CMF II, so the original is still
there. The CMF II gives much better results than the original CMF.
- Added the possibility of playing whole tracks, or a few seconds at
the beginning/end of a track or before/after a track - with a single
keystroke. Makes life a lot easier.
- Added a Copy Only `filter' that only copies the signal. Useful for
splitting tracks without processing the signal. Requested (more or
less) by Richard Robinson.
- Added a Experimenting Filter with which you can experiment. See the
- Corrected writing of .wav header - bytes_per_sample seems to be 4
instead of 2 (as found in bplay.c). Thanks to Pavel Kasparek for
- Several other small changes.
- Track splitting operational
- Documented signal processing and track splitting
- English user interface
- Removed some annoying bugs
- Cleaned up source code and used indent(1)
- Webpage at http://cardit.et.tudelft.nl/~card06
- Done a lot of other things
- First `official' non-public release, at the end of the `Integraal Project
Practicum', without track splitting, without full documentation (.txt
files) and a Dutch user interface.
