-- Play16 version 1.10 - a versatile soundplayer for the Amiga --
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Readme.1st
----------
This is a MINOR update. There's not much new...

Features in brief
-----------------
 - FREEWARE!  No beta, no nag requesters and no expiry date!
 - online help
 - autodetects and plays several soundfiles, up to 16 bit / 56 kHz / stereo
 - full Workbench support (but not Intuition and no GUI)
 - always correct playback speed, even for sounds >28 kHz
 - realtime playback from harddisk, optimized assembler routines
 - optional 14 bit output (less noise but not as good as true 16 bit)
 - Supports AHI and soundcards (Prelude recommended!)
 - automatic or manual audio filter control
 - plays mono sounds on *both* channels, not only on the left one
 - plays (and loops) files that are larger than memory
 - preloading for exactly timed start of playback
 - fast µ-Law/A-Law decompression
 - system friendly audio channel allocation
 - optionally dump the output into a file (can be used to convert sounds)
 - supported Filetypes are:

   * Microsoft RIFF-WAVE  (.WAV)  mono/stereo, 8/16    bit,
linear/uLaw/ALaw/ADPCM    * Creative Voice File  (.VOC)  mono/stereo, 8/16   
bit, linear    * Sun/NeXT Audio       (.AU)   mono/stereo, 8/16    bit,
linear/uLaw    * MacroSystem Audio    (.MAUD) mono/stereo, 8/16    bit,
linear/uLaw    * Apple/SGI/Amiga AIFF (.AIFF) mono/stereo, 8/16/24 bit,
linear/uLaw/ALaw    * Amiga IFF-8SVX       (.IFF)  mono/stereo, 8       bit,
linear/FibDelta/ExpDelta    * Any raw sound data as long as it matches one of
the following:
     -  8 bit signed
     -  8 bit unsigned
     - 16 bit signed, Intel format    (LSB first)
     - 16 bit signed, Motorola format (MSB first)
     - 14 bit µ-Law
     - 14 bit A-Law

	- supported output devices are:

   * Native Amiga chipset (Paula)  8 bit
   * Native Amiga chipset (Paula) 14 bit
   * Native Amiga chipset (Paula) 14 bit calibrated (Christian Buchner)
   * MacroSystem Maestro Pro      16 bit 44.1kHz and 48kHz only
   * IFF-8SVX file dump            8 bit
   * AHI audio system             16 bit
   * Prelude                      16 bit

What's new?

v1.10   * New features:
        - µ-Law and A-Law AIFF support
        - time counter
        - QUIET option

        * Dropped features:
        - removed the 68000 version - keep using Play16 v1.8 if you still
          haven't got a faster processor!

v1.9    * New features:
        - 24-bit AIFF support, playback will still be 16-bit though
        - more verbose error reporting why a file can't be played
        - recompiled with SAS/C 6.50
        - OUTNUM option to select among different outputs of AHI devices

        * Dropped features:
        - removed the screenmode hack
