MiniSid Realized
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 25 September 2020 23:23

Author: Bertinetto Bartolomeo Davide

MiniSid v0.02: Download

MiniSid v0.02: Multiplatform Program Developed in Hollywood able to perform SID music of the C64, preliminary version that the author hopes to make it complete.

I discovered that MiniSid is also able to run other audio formats such as MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, AAC, WAV, AIFF, MOD, XM, S3M, the Player requires high hardware resources due to the now very high demand of computing speed required by Hollywood applications, in 68k versions the FPU is required.

In the archive you can find the various executables for OS3, OS4, MOS and Windows, imminent also an AROS x86 version, the OS3 version works well also on AROS 68k as shown in the screenshot, the icons of the program were made by me.

New CDTV expansions
Posted by alexh - 21 September 2020 17:19
alexh's Avatar  Hi,

I dunno if this is of any interest to many people but Spaniard Amiga dude Edu Arana has created lots of (short runs) of Amiga products recently and I noticed two for the CDTV.

A replacement for the UHF/composite or SCART (CD-1321) video output board. If you've ever bought a CDTV with nothing in this slot you know what a pain it is as the 23-pin video port isn't live without something in this slot.

As well as a 15-pin VGA (15KHz) output (perfect for OSSC) it has an SD card slot for anyone lucky enough to have a Vampire A500 or similar CPU adapter card with the correct header. And an experimental Serial->Wifi feature (not sure where the aerial goes)

He also makes (or is making) a CDTV SCSI card with integrated SCSI2SD and Mouse/Joystick ports

Plus take a browse at the other things he makes for Commodore and Atari computers.

Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 12 September 2020 22:12

Author: Shinkuro (Gianfranco Gignina)

NoWinED 0.83 + Sources: Download

NoWinED is a cross-platform text Editor for OS3/OS4/AROS x86/MOS written in MUI capable of handling multiple files simultaneously using "pages" for each file.

Unfortunately some features of NoWinED are not present on all four operating systems, due to minimal incompatibilities. Moreover, switching from one Amiga system to another is not always possible to use the same editor programs as they may have incompatibilities.

NoWinED offers:

- Multiple file management through pages controllable by means of "Title buttons", a list and / or a convenient context menu at the right button (appears automatically when necessary) to scroll the title buttons;
- Context menus;
- Search and replacement module;
- Search within open files;
- Drag & Drop files: dragging one or more files on the NoWinED list opens the files in new pages, if you drag a file in a page then the file will be opened in the current page. Finally, if you drag multiple files on a page, then the first file will be opened on the current page and the other files on new pages (on AROS it lacks the
- Basic functions of a texteditor (c&p, select all, undo and redo, etc...).
- Support for keyboard use;
- UTF-8 support (It can load UTF files and export UTF-8 with and without BOM, or in ASCII);
- CR/LF/CR+LF support (It is able to load any type of txt file and export CR/LF/CR+LF tests);
- Intelligent n-column text truncation support;
- Support for backup of all open files configurable;
- Support for automatic saving of the current configurable file;
- Programmable function keys (Fn);
- Graphic printing;
- Present on all 4 Amiga platforms;

HD-Rec 0.10 Beta released on Aminet
Posted by Weaselrama - 08 September 2020 09:27
Weaselrama's Avatar  Very nice 16-bit audio sequencer. I'm running this in OS 3.9 w/ AfA. I've included a few screenshots but I'm just really starting to explore this. The sequencer view in the last screenshot is a sample .proj file included in the release. HD-Rec was released as freeware a few years ago. EDIT: This version has been around since 01/01/12. Why is it just now being uploaded to Aminet, I can't say.

From Aminet:

What did I just download ?

HD-Rec is a powerful MIDI/Audio sequencer for AmigaOS and
compatible OSes. The final target is to replace a whole music
production studio (well, at least a MIDI studio) with software

It is a sequencer that can handle MIDI tracks and audio tracks
in very similar way, both arranged in the same timeline window.
The MIDI tracks can be played by an external hardware synth
via MIDI interface or internal via softsynth (e.g. "Sweeper").
The audio tracks can be recorded through your soundcard
or imported from disk. The most common fileformats are supported
(.wav, .aiff, .8svx, .mp3).

It has an integrated audio mixer with 16 true-stereo channels,
1 input and a master out channel, plus 4 aux channels.
There are a lot of useful high quality audio effects that can be
attached as insert or send effects to the channels.

This archive contains:
* HD-Rec V0.10 Beta
* various audio effects (Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger, EQ, ...)
* Plugin: "Sweeper" Softsynth V2.0
* Plugin: "VM-49" virtual Masterkeyboard
* Plugin: "AMixer" pop up tool
* some demo songs using Sweeper
* General MIDI bank and various instruments for Sweeper

HD-Rec was successfully tested on following platfroms:
* Classic Amiga 68060/50MHz / AmigaOS 3.5
* WinUAE / AmigaOS 3.9
* Amithlon / AmigaOS 3.9

Note: This is a beta version of HD-Rec. Some features are still missing
and maybe it contains some serious bugs, so be warned, use it at
your own risk and do not make the author responsible for any
data loss. See the disclaimer at the end of this document.

If you find a bug or you have a suggestion how to improve the
workflow or what new features should be implemented, please write
an email to support hd-rec de.

To see what is new in this release, see the file "history.txt" in the
HD-Rec directory.

Hollywood Designer 5.0 Special Edition now available
Posted by softwarefailure - 06 September 2020 15:51
Autumn just got awesome: Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to present the Special Edition of Hollywood Designer 5.0. Hollywood Designer 5.0 SE is identical to the standard edition of Hollywood Designer 5.0 except that it comes bundled with a special version of Hollywood 8.0 that can only be used with Hollywood Designer but not on its own. This limitation makes it possible to offer Hollywood Designer 5.0 SE for a much cheaper price than buying Hollywood Designer 5.0 and Hollywood 8.0 separately. It is a special offer targeted specifically at people who only want to use Hollywood Designer but not Hollywood itself. For those users it is now possible to get the most advanced Amiga multimedia software suite for a much cheaper price!

Hollywood Designer 5.0 is a multimedia authoring system that runs on top of Hollywood and can be used to create all sorts of multimedia-based applications, for example presentations, slide shows, games, and applications. Thanks to Hollywood, all multimedia applications created using Hollywood Designer can be exported as stand-alone executables for the following systems: AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, WarpOS, MorphOS, AROS, Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. Hollywood Designer is no longer limited to "just" being an authoring software, it can now also be used as a flexible graphics editor because it supports many features of modern graphics editors like multiple layers with over 30 filter effects, vector graphics, video import and export, and text processing. Click here to learn more about Hollywood Designer 5.0 and its features.

Power up your Amiga system with Hollywood Designer 5.0 SE and place your order now!

Amiga Bootblock Reader v4
Posted by jasonver2.0 - 06 September 2020 11:37
Hello all
After a long wait, we are releasing another version of our bootblock program

ABR is a Windows program which allows reading and writing Amiga bootblocks from Amiga Disk Files.

- Now recognises 2166 different bootblocks
- Brainfile / Category list now in XML Format to allow easy editing / import
- Supports ADFs, DMS, ADZ (Gzipped ADF) and Zipped ADF files
(DMS scanning requires XDMS
- Will now filter directory scan to only scan disk and bootblock files unless specified
- Now supports sub directory scanning
- Added 'Encyclopedia' of Amiga bootblock programs just for fun
- Reworked GUI to allow for more options
- Fixed lots of bad detection
- Added 'Note' section to allow some bootblock description
- Added indicator of Kickstart requirement and if disk data is needed for boot
- Added function keys
(F1 - Scan new folder / F5 - Rescan drawer / Space - Stop scan)

*Though every effort has been made to make everything work correctly, its still a work in progress and so any good suggestions made will be implemented*

Any bootblock contributions are very appreciated. ABR exists to celebrate the cool variety of bootblocks on the Amiga and more the merrier. We would love for it to be able to detect all the bootblock viruses out there

If you have modified your brainfile with a earlier version, send it to us and we'll merge it into the original for everyone (email in About ABR in program)
