Fade in and out features added for playing files.

V1.3.15 adds some nice new features for fading in and out the Mic signal. Cross-fades are possible also. You can set the type to use in Live2Setup , 5 types of muting or fading in and out are possible :

  1. Auto Mic mute. This is behaviour like before.
  2. Manual Mic mute. The Mic is not muted automatically you can manually mute it during play.
  3. Auto Mic fade. Behaviour is like before, but the Mic is faded in and out with the fade-times you set. You can set different fade in and out times, from 0 to 10 seconds.
  4. Manual Mic fade. Like 2. but with fade in and out.
  5. Auto Cross fade. Like 3. but with a cross-fade between played file and Mic.

AAC-HE fully unleashed !

V 1.3.14 now unleashes full potential of the AAC encoders of Coding Technologies with the addition of 2 new stereo profiles:

  • AAC-HE v2 . This enables better stereo quality with lower bitrate, adviced bitrates are from 16 to 56 kbps.
  • Oversampled SBR. In case highest bit rate efficiency is not the most important requirement but instead highest possible audio quality is aimed for, AAC-HE offers the so-called oversampled SBR mode as an alternative to plain AAC. In Luci it’s abbreviated to HQ SBR. Adviced bitrates are from 96 to 256 kbps.
  • We increased maximum bitrate for all AAC profiles to 256 kbps.
  • Useful bitrates for different profiles are: AAC mono 32 to 160 kbps, AAC Stereo 64 to 256 kbps, AAC-HE mono 16 to 64 kbps, AAC-HE Stereo 16 to 128 kbps, AAC-HEv2 Stereo 16 to 56 kbps, AAC-HE HQ SBR Stereo 96 to 256 kbps.

Download here at the right, set the new profiles in Live2 Setup and enjoy !

Server time-out adjustable

New version 1.3.11 uploaded with extra feature and 2 bugs solved:

  • When Luci runs in server-mode, you can now set a time out. Up until now this was set to 2 seconds: if no stream comes in for 2 seconds the return stream was stopped also. Now you can set the time to any value between 1 and 999 seconds. If you fill in 0, the time-out will be 1 day exactly. This way a reporter can mute the Mic but still receive the return-stream up until the time that is set as time-out at the server.
  • We found a tiny memory-leak of 60 bytes each time a connection was made. It is now resolved.
  • Playing wave-files at different sample-rates as the I/O sample-rate now works ok.
