Freestyle sounds interesting. Do we need a dongle for these programs?

Most seem to be cracks so I would think not, only real way to know is to test.

Guys, please post your results if you get to test them although I'm sure Atarieterno has tested them?

Hi all,
Thanks to Atarieterno we now have a number of great Soundpool applications come to light.
I've copied the soundpool.de website and have updated the copy with software and descriptions.

If anyone has other Soundpool titles please please let us know - especially if you have the manuals.

http://www.yardley.cc/atari/soundpool/ Go to the "File Download Area" to see the details/files.

*********** MATRIX ************

MATRIX.PRG is a SoundPool program identical to Steinberg's FDI_INIT.PRG, in fact the SoundPool hardware devices delivered a license to Steinberg to share their brand in some of them.

MATRIX.PRG; to be able to work with the SoundPool SPDIF or Steinberg FDI interface you must copy this file to the AUTO Folder of your boot partition. If you have a Hard Disk, this is the C: partition (if there is no AUTO folder on C:, create one named AUTO).
If you do not have a Hard Disk, you can use a floppy disk with an AUTO folder on it, and copy it there; The SPDIF / FDI does not make much sense without a Hard Disk, however. Note that the MATRIX.PRG or FDI_INIT.PRG must be installed for:

Cubase Audio, Logic Audio, FDISTREAM, DATADAT, CDRecorder Audio, WaveMaster and AudioSlide u.a.

AudioMaster, AudioTracker and the programs of the SoundPool Mastering Suite (Analyzer, DeNoiser, EQ, Dynamite etc) do not need this patch.

*********** AIFF-FIX ************

Program to verify and correct headers of AIFF audio files.

(I do not have the text in English, if someone is so kind to translate it from German: please post it here).

AIFF-FIX.

Programm zur Prfung und Korrektur der Header von AIFF-Audiofiles.

½ 1998 Klaus Heyne.


Anmerkungen zum Thema AIFF.

Immer wieder gibt es Unstimmigkeiten in der Interpretation der Header
von AIFF-Audiofiles, was vor allem beim Austausch zwischen verschiedenen
Applikationen zum Ausdruck kommt.
Meistens geht es um die L„nge der Audiodaten, die Probleme bereitet. Im
Header von AIFF-Files gibt es mehrere Eintr„ge, aus denen ein
"Importeur" die entsprechenden Werte lesen bzw. errechnen k”nnte - laut
offizieller AIFF-Spezifikation sollte die Soundl„nge aber immer aus dem
"COMM"-Chunk mit dem entsprechenden Eintrag "Frames" abgeleitet werden
(L„nge in Bytes = Frames * Anz. der Kan„le * 2).
Programme, die die Datenl„nge aus dem "SSND"-Chunk entnehmen, vergessen
dabei meist, daž der "SSND"-Chunk neben den Sounddaten auch einen
Offset-Wert (inklusive der n”tigen Fllbytes) enthalten kann, um die
Sounddaten auf eine 512-Byte-Blockgrenze zu bringen. Genauso fehlerhaft
ist es, die Soundl„nge dem ersten, bergeordneten "FORM"-Chunk (oder gar
der Dateil„nge) zu entnehmen, da ein AIFF-File beliebig viele Chunks
beliebiger Gr”že enthalten kann und die gesammte Datenl„nge deshalb
keine Rckschlsse auf die L„nge der Sample-Daten zul„žt.
Auf der TOS-Plattform hat sich (wohl durch Cubase Audio) eingebrgert,
daž AIFF-Header 512 Bytes lang sind (wovon brigens nur meist 54 Bytes
fr Informationen dienen, der Rest sind Leerbytes), damit die Sounddaten
zur besseren Performance bei Datei-Operationen auf Disk-Blockgr”že
angepažt sind. Trotzdem sollte dies nicht vorausgesetzt werden, denn es
soll ja vorkommen, daž ein Datenaustausch zwischen verschiedenen Platt-
formen stattfindet. Aus diesem Grund lesen meine Programme AudioTracker,
WaveMaster und AIFFPLAY sehr sorgf„ltig die Daten im AIFF-Header und
laden nicht mehr Daten, als im "COMM"-Chunk angegeben ist.

Das Programm AIFF-FIX...

...analysiert den Header einer AIFF-Datei, und prft ob die Chunks
"FORM", "COMM" und "SSND" in Bezug auf die Dateil„nge stimmig sind.
Falls Differenzen auftreten, wird ein neuer Header mit korrekten Daten
aufgebaut. Obwohl es nicht im Einklang mit der obigen Ausfhrung zu
stehen scheint, wird hierfr die Dateil„nge als Maž benutzt, da AIFF-FIX
ja nicht "weiž", welche Headereintr„ge nun stimmen und welche nicht und
keine Sounddaten verlorengehen sollen. Daraus ergibt sich natrlich, daž
auf diese Weise nur AIFFs korrigiert werden drfen, die aužer Samples
keine anderen Daten enthalten (Anm.: Mir sind noch keine AIFFs unter-
gekommen, die andere Daten enthielten). Wenn AIFF-FIX Anpassungen vor-
genommen hat, erscheint eine entsprechende Meldung mit der Option den
neuen Header zu speichern.

ACHTUNG!
Da ein neuer Header aufgebaut wird, gehen Informationen, die in uner-
kannten Chunks stehen k”nnten (wie z.B. MIDI-Noten-Zuordung oder
Kommentare) verloren!
Das Ergebnis ist ein Header, in dem alle L„ngeneintr„ge aufeinander
abgestimmt sind. Ein solches File sollte von jedem AIFF-Importeuer
korrekt gelesen werden.

Natrlich bernehme ich keine Haftung fr irgendwelche Sch„den oder
Verluste, die durch das Programm entstehen k”nnten.
(Das bliche halt. Den ersten Versuch sollte man nicht unbedingt mit
einer unwiderbringlichen Abmischung, fr die man mehrere Wochen im
Studio gesessen hat, durchfhren!).

24.04.1998 Klaus Heyne.

Program to check and correct headers of AIFF audio files.

½ 1998 Klaus Heyne



Comments on the topic AIFF

Again and again, there are disagreements in the interpretation of the headers
of AIFF audio files, especially when sharing between different ones
Applications are expressed.
Mostly it's about the length of the audio data that causes problems. in the
Headers of AIFF files, there are several entries that make up a
"Importer" could read or calculate the corresponding values - loud
official AIFF specification, the sound length should always be out of the
"COMM" chunk with the corresponding entry "frames" derived
(Length in bytes = frames * number of channels * 2).
Forgot programs that take the data length from the "SSND" chunk
most of the time, the "SSND" chunk has a sound as well as a sound file
An offset value (including the required fill bytes) may be included in the
To bring sound data to a 512-byte block boundary. Just as faulty
is it the sound length of the first, higher-level "FORM" chunk (or even
the file length), as an AIFF file any number of chunks
can contain any size and the total data length therefore
no feedback on the length of the sample data allowed.
On the TOS platform has been (probably by Cubase Audio),
AIFF headers are 512 bytes long (which is usually only 54 bytes)
for information, the rest are empty bytes), so that the sound data
for better performance in file operations on disk block size
are adapted. Nevertheless, this should not be assumed, because of it
should happen that a data exchange between different platforms
takes place. That's why my programs read AudioTracker,
WaveMaster and AIFFPLAY very carefully the data in the AIFF header and
Do not load more data than specified in the "COMM" chunk.

The program AIFF-FIX ...

... parses the header of an AIFF file, and checks if the chunks
"FORM", "COMM" and "SSND" are consistent in terms of file length.
If differences occur, a new header with the ​correct data will be generated
built up. Although not in accordance with the above embodiment to​
stands for the file length as Maž, because AIFF-FIX
yes, do not know which header entries are correct and which are not and
no sound data should be lost. It follows, of course, that
In this way, only AIFFs may be corrected, other than samples
do not contain any other data (Note: I have no AIFFs yet
come containing other data). If AIFF-FIX adjustments are required
has taken a message appears with the option the
save new header.

ATTENTION!
Since a new header is being set up, information that
Chunks could stand (such as MIDI note assignment or
Comments) lost!
The result is a header in which all length entries are consecutive
are coordinated. Such a file should be from any AIFF importer
be read correctly.

Of course, I take no responsibility for any damage or damage
Losses that could be incurred by the program.
(The usual halt. The first attempt should not necessarily with
an irresistible mix for which you spend several weeks in the
Studio has done, perform!)

The rest I have have, but have already been shared here by Atarieterno, and appear to be the same. I believe I have a couple more, will require to locate them.

Hi Atarieterno,

With AudioMaster 2.11 there is a program called CUTNP2, is this the Maths Co-Pro version that is the same as:

AudioMaster 2.06NP AudioMaster für Atari Falcon 030, Co-Prozessor Version

None of the 2.11 documentation can confirm it, i just thought this could be it from the 2.06 NP archive name and the Co-Processor description.

Thanks

Hello viking272;
Then we have another piece to complete the puzzle.
I'm still looking for a thousand floppy disks I have around here and I hope to find an disc with the demos that SoundPool sent to distributors, BBSs, magazines, etc.
Best regards.

Keep looking my friend!!

I have now fixed the Audio Tracker manual scan.

I combined the odd and even PDFs into one PDF and then found a website to reorder PDF pages. The output is good.

Hi, yes that's the one taken from the soundpool.de site, and should be the co-processor version. That's where I took it from, before the site links were broke. I have not tested it to date, but it's one of the reasons I attached my files, as well as doc version txt's.

The most important difference between versions I think is: original or cracked.
What is one or the other? ... It is not that difficult to find out (remember what I said about the free prostitute who also pays the bed?).

OK, I will need to see if someone can test the two versions to see which is which. I don't have an emulator or real hardware handy just yet. Anyone able to assist?
