This archive contains the binary distribution of AHI,
everything you need to use programs that require AHI,
and documentation in AmigaGuide® format.

Missing files
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
At present, not all binaries can be build for all architectures:

    * DEVS:MIDI/emu10kx, the CAMD driver for EMU10kx-based sound cards
    is currently only available in the m68k-amigaos build.

    * L:AHI-Handler is a "resident" or "pure" binary that implements
    an AmigaOS-style filesystem. As such, it is currently not included
    in the ppc-amigaos, i686be-amithlon and i386-aros builds.

For architectures that also provides m68k emulation, simply grab these
missing files from the m68k-amigaos archive instead.

Installation
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
AHI version 4 used to have a nice installer script. If you would like
to contribute one for AHI version 6, I'm sure lots of people would be
very grateful!

Manual installation is easy. Here is a list of files in the archive
and where they are supposed to be copied:

As you can see, it's basically just a straight copy to your SYS: or
MOSSYS: partition. The exceptions are the MagicWB ("MWB") icons and
the help file, which should be renamed to ahi.guide.

Changes since last release
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    * Anti-click mixing routines, which makes AHI search for a
      zero-crossing before playing a new note

    * Playback of 32 bit samples.

    * Multi-channel audio. Eight channels are supported.

    * Support for four more architectures: MorphOS/PPC, AmigaOS4/PPC,
      Amithlon/ix86, AROS/ix86.

    * Support for PowerPC accelerator cards (MorphOS and AmigaOS4
      only).

    * A new driver, device.audio, can be used to make all low-level AHI
      applications, which normally open AHI in exclusive mode, behave
      as if they used the high-level API which allows several AHI
      applications to work simultaneously. (Note that this driver
      currently does not work with applications that require less than
      20 ms latency.)

    * The 68000 processor is no longer supported; a 68020 or better is
      required.

TITLE

     AHI Audio system

VERSION

     Release 6.0

AUTHOR

     Martin Blom <martin at blom.org>

DESCRIPTION

     Retargetable Audio for AmigaOS
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

     (When refering to this software, the correct term is
     'AHI audio system' or just 'AHI', never 'Audio Hardware
     Interface'! 'AHI' is pronounced 'atchii', as in 'God bless!'.)

     AHI now supports the PowerPC processor. Thanks to the users who
     donated money and Syscom & Mematex AB who sponsored the hardware,
     I was finally able you buy a Cyberstorm PPC card. The current
     version is for MorphOS only, but a WarpUp version will hopefully
     follow later.

     Version 6.0 supports 68020, 68030, 68040 and 68060 from
     the m68k family and 603 and 604 from the PowerPC family.

     Staring with version 6, the 68000 processor is no longer supported.
     68000 owners should use version 4 instead.

     Quick overview
     ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

     * Driver based

     Each supported sound card is controlled by a library-based audio
     driver. For a 'dumb' sound card, a new driver should be written in
     a few hours. For a 'smart' sound card, it is possible to utilize an
     on-board DSP, for example, to maximize performance and sound quality.
     For sound cards with own DSP but little or no memory, it is possible
     to use the main CPU to mix channels and do the post-processing
     with the DSP. Available today are drivers for

     · Aura (sampler only)
     · Clarity (sampler only)
     · Concierto (Picasso IV sound module)
     · Delfina DSP and Delfina Lite
     · DraCo Motion
     · Maestro Pro
     · Melody Z2 and 1200
     · Paula (8/14/14c bit)
     · Prelude and Prelude 1200
     · Toccata
     · Wavetools
     · 8SVX (mono) and AIFF/AIFC (mono & stereo) sample render
     · ...and more.

     * Fast, powerful mixing routines (yeah, right... haha)

     The device's mixing routines mix 8- or 16-bit signed samples, both
     mono and stereo, located in Fast-RAM and outputs 32-bit mono or stereo
     (with stereo panning if desired) data, using any number of channels
     (as long as 'any' means less than 128...).  Tables are no longer
     used, which might affect performace slightly. Instead, version 6
     forcuses slightly more on the quality of the sound.
     
     * Support for non-realtime mixing

     By providing a timing feature, it is possible to create high-
     quality output even if the processing power is lacking, by saving
     the output to disk, for example as an IFF AIFF or 8SXV file.
     There are so-called HiFi mixing routines that can be used, which
     use linear interpolation and gives 32 bit output.

     * Audio database

     Uses ID codes, much like Screenmode IDs, to select the many
     parameters that can be set. The functions to access the audio
     database are not too different from those in 'graphics.library'.
     The device also features a requester to get an ID code from the
     user.

     * Both high- and low-level protocol

     By acting both like a device and a library, AHI gives the programmer
     a choice between full control and simplicity. The device API allows
     several programs to use the audio hardware at the same time, and
     the AUDIO: dos-device driver makes playing and recording sound very
     simple for both the programmer and user.

     * Future Compatible

     When AmigaOS gets device-independent audio worth it's name, it should
     not be too difficult to write a driver for AHI, allowing applications
     using 'ahi.device' to automatically use the new OS interface. At
     least I hope it wont.

     Funny how things turned out, isn't it? Sigh.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

     AmigaOS release 2.
     MC68020 processor or better.
