More sample-rates on I/O

In the latest version you can set the sample-rate of the audio I/O to 48 KHz also. Luci Live2 used to use always 44.1 KHz at the audio input and output, but streamed at 48 KHz always using high-quality sample-rate converters. This was done to ensure that the audio input and output works with all soundcards or PDA’s.

Now you can set the sample rate for the Audio I/O to 48 KHz also, for the case where you have a controlled and known soundcard.

This version 1.3.7 can be downloaded from the download section on the right.

Save as Wave, v1.3.6

  • Luci Live used to record only in the same format as the RTP-stream was in. You can now record in uncompressed wave-format also. Go to Setup and New project tab and choose the option there. Important! Be aware that recording in wav-format consumes much more processor power. So, if you use a PDA, be sure it has enough processing-power and fast memory to do so.
  • A “Force mono” option in the RTP/UDP tab in Setup allows you to convert any incoming stereo stream to mono.
  • It is now possible to buy Luci Live2 installed and registered on a USB memory stick. This way you can use Luci Live2 on any computer.

Gain knob

New version at beta-site (see right at the blogroll) has new features:

  • Gain knob to adjust input-gain.  Like in Luci, you can use the up/down key to adjust.
  • Uses Windows Mixer to adjust microphone-gain below 0dB(attenuation). If no Windows-mixer is available, the gain can not be adjusted below 0dB. This should work on a PDA also, but not all PDA’s have the Windows Mixer inside, the newer WM6 ones mostly do however. So, finally we can make some decent gain-control from within Luci on a PDA !

Bug solved:

  •  Default ports in Live2 Setup now work correctly. Used to NOT work when you have not typed in :portnr after the URL or IP-address.

Vista compatibility

We automated Vista compatibility, Luci Live2 will now check if it’s running on a Vista machine and will make sure it will run without the audio-dropouts previously encountered. This is independent of the number of audio-frames an ip-server sents back in each packet, so you can set the servers to send 1 frame per packet standard.
