Release 1105

Post by CG »

Wow! Double wow!

The high priced alternatives seem to use direct access to the HAL as part of their secret sauce rather than passing through the traditional CoreAudio path. Does hog mode effectively accomplish the same thing?

I can't think of one aspect of playback where Play doesn't equal or greatly surpass iTunes now. The only fanciness missing now is album cover artwork.

Thanks *very* much.

Hog mode is a work in progress. In 1105 the support is there, but when enabled no audio will play because of the way I manage the AUGraph. I'm currently rewriting the audio engine for 10.5 so hopefully I'll be able to use hog mode then.
