Decibel 1.2.4 prerelease available

Post by sbooth » Tue Jun 07, 2011 12:34 am

I've posted the first pre-release build of Decibel 1.2.4 at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21004626/Decibe ... elease.zip

The only change thus far is related to the way sample rate changes are handled, which should prevent crashing in certain circumstances.

I've posted the second prerelease build of 1.2.4, which improves AppleScript support and ensures output is clipped correctly.

I've posted the fifth prerelease build of 1.2.4, which fixes problems with certain types of WAVE files not playing correctly.

Hi Stephen,

I've installed the 5th pre-release and used it a bit. Everything seems to work fine for me, apart from these things:
  • Last.fm plugin: "Now Playing" update is only sent for the first song
  • The Play/Pause button doesn't always update correctly. Most of the times, when Decibel is playing, you still see the Play button instead of the Pause button
  • When the last song in the playlist window is done, the player doesn't update either: the track is still marked in bold with the speaker icon next to it and the progress bar at the top remains at 0:00 remaining

Stephen, I recently purchased Decibel and I'm extremely happy with the performance with a Weiss DAC2 via Firewire. Sample rate adjustment is flawless. I can confirm the issues retuow has with pre-release 1.2.4.

I'm new to the forum so this may not be the correct place to post this, but here are a few features to consider.

• I'd like to have the option to upsample 44.1 to 176.4KHZ
• Keyboard Forward/Back/PausePlay button support outside of the app and override these controls from iTunes

Cheers!

Just an FYI, I am seeing the same play button not changing to a pause button (and occasionally working, and then the opposite happening) issue that was described above in 1.2.3. So this is (apparently) not an issue specific to 1.2.4.

If you hit the Command key, the play/pause button toggles to the right state. The Command key will not toggle between the 2 states, but will only toggle it to the correct state. I'm not sure why this is (might just be for my install), it's just something that I had noticed. Also, this issue only happens occasionally for me.

The Command key trick works for me too, so it's not your installation.

It's not a bug - it's an undocumented feature that everybody has.

Stephen has always fixed every other little thing like this; I imagine he will fix this as well.

I've posted the sixth prerelease of 1.2.4. This one fixes the Last.fm now playing update problem, and should resolve some beachball issues related to sample rate changes. Also, AppleScript support was greatly improved and I added support for more WAVE variants.

I've posted the seventh prerelease of 1.2.4. This one fixes a few beachballs, and slightly changes the way that sample rate changes are handled.
