BASS FX apps fail on Windows 8
« Reply #550 on: 19 Sep '11 - 07:13 »
Hey, Artur!

I just installed the recently released Windows 8 Developer Preview, and spotted that all BASS FX apps crash at their startup, with the exact same error:



Libraries used: BASS 2.4.8.1 & 2.4.7.1, BASS FX 2.4.7.1, and if it helps - I tried only Delphi app demos.

Do note that pure BASS apps (such as 'BassTest') do not crash. Guess, there is a some issue with the BASS+BASS FX couple.

Hi ;D

Can you please check if the precompiled C/bin examples run without crash?

BASS FX Issue on Windows 8
« Reply #552 on: 19 Sep '11 - 11:42 »
Hey, what is up!

The precompiled sample programs do not operate as well:





I also tried to add tempo.exe to the DEP exclusions (then rebooted indeed), but that did not help.

Hope this is because W8 is still in Beta  ;)

I recently got a user reporting the following error:
Code: [Select]
Error Message: Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002802B (TYPE_E_ELEMENTNOTFOUND))
Error Type: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException
Error Source: Bass.Net.Boolean BASS_FXSetParameters(Int32, System.Object)

The code being called when the exception was thrown is basically:
Code: [Select]
_fxVolEnv = Bass.BASS_ChannelSetFX(_sourceStream, BASSFXType.BASS_FX_BFX_VOLUME_ENV, 0);
BASS_BFX_VOLUME_ENV volenv = new BASS_BFX_VOLUME_ENV(...);
Bass.BASS_FXSetParameters(_fxVolEnv, volenv);

The same code workes on various other machines - just on one machine I get this error.
The thing what puzzles me is, that it is a COM error, which idicates, that a cetain COM object could not be found.
So I was wondering what COM object BASS_FX is using with a BASS_FX_BFX_VOLUME_ENV ?
Any idea?

BASS_FX has no use of any COM objects, just plain algorithms of its own :)

Alright, we will keep an eye on it and await for more reports, if any.

But could that happen to me because the new Windows did/does not recognize some devices? Obviously there is no way to download drivers from the manufacturer's website, because the new OS is not officially supported.

Also, I noticed that you set different locale settings. Have you tried to keep them at defaults, and could this be a problem?

Once again: there are no issues with the pure BASS playback, as well with the Windows Media Player.

To confirm whether the problem is something specific to BASS_FX, do you get it with the pre-compiled examples included with other add-ons, eg. BASSenc or BASSmix?

Btw, 0xc00000bb = STATUS_NOT_SUPPORTED, which is described as "The request is not supported".

Hey, Ian!

I have tested some examples for BASS, BASSenc, and BASSmix. All of those which have been actually launched they operate fine on my Win-8 installation!

Some screenshots follow:

Just BASS








BASS Encoder (BASSenc)




BASS Mixer (BASSmix)




I've also installed and run a couple of third party audio players. All of them work okay:





(Winamp is of the most recent version, v5.621, release date is July 11, 2011)



(this is Windows Media Player included into the distribution; speed settings work okay as well)


Summarizing, so far I have had problems only with the BASS FX apps. I run Windows 8 Developer Preview on real hardware, not on a virtual machine.

 I have the same issues with the bass_fx.dll  :(. The precompiled samples don't work, as well as some self compiled binaries (I'm using Delphi 2009).
The bass.dll alone works fine, also bass.dll with basscd.dll (tested with precompiled exe).

I have the 64bit-version of the Windows8 developer preview (without the developer tools), running on real hardware.

I forgot to mention: I have a 64-bit version installed, too, and including the developer tools.

Ok, this seems to be a Problem with 64Bit. I've tried the 32Bit-Version of the Windows8 Developer Preview (on the same machine) and everything works fine.

Maybe this is useful to fix the bug.  :)

Thanks for the additional info. The puzzling thing is why the problem is only affecting BASS_FX. We're looking into it :)

Hi ;D

Please redownload the BASS_FX package.
The error in Windows 8 x64 should be fixed now ;)

Shalom, Arthur!

Everything runs smooth as I can see now.









But why the changelog isn't modified reflecting the fix, nor is the version number updated? (still 2.4.7.1, excuse me for nitpicking)

Hi ;D

Because it's not a BASS_FX code that changed, the problem was in a compressing application that is used to compress the dll and was affecting only BASS_FX and not other add-ons of Ian :)

What's up, Arthur!

Do you mean UPX? Could you tell what exactly command line switch was the problem personally I do use it, too.

Thank you!

Hi ;D

No, the compression application that is used with BASS/add-ons is an application made by Ian called Petite.
The UPX works fine in Windows 8 x64, I've also tested it.

The weird thing is that in Windows 8 x86 the dll runs fine, so it might be that Windows 8 is still in a pre-beta that was failing in x64 :)

Hello  ;D

I was wondering which is the slope (rolloff) applied to the limit of equalizer bands applied using the BASS_ChannelSetFX function: in most hardware products this is usually 12 dB per octave so I was wondering if the BASS_FX_BFX_PEAKEQ effect uses the same or if it's different. Looking at the BASS_BFX_PEAKEQ structure it doesn't seem to be configurable so I suspect that this is a fixed value: is this correct?

Thanks and Kind Regards  ;D

Nadia

Hi ;D

Since Peaking EQ is a BiQuad filter, this will answer your question:

Hi ;D

there's now version 2.4.8 is released

2.4.8 - 31/07/2012
------------------
* BASS_FX:
  * Android version introduced (package bass_fx24-android.zip)
    currently doesn't include most BASS_FX_BFX_xxx effects.
  * Delphi/Pascal unit: changed "user" param from "DWORD" to "Pointer"

* BPM:
 * Added "user" param to BASS_FX_BPM_DecodeGet and BPMPROCESSPROC (you have to recompile your project).
  * BPM example updated to fit above changes.
  * According to this request: http://www.un4seen.com/forum/?topic=13319
    Added support for BPM detection from the current position with BASS_FX_BPM_DecodeGet (startSec<0).
    
* Beat:
  * Couple of little fixes in beat detection.

* Tempo:
  * Android: Enabled the BASS_ATTRIB_TEMPO_OPTION_USE_QUICKALGO option on tempo
    streams by default for lower CPU usage. See docs on how to disable it.

Hey, Arthur!

There is a typo introduced in the Delphi header of most recent version of Bass-FX, which actually causes a compiling error.

In the declaration of the BASS_FX_BPM_DecodeGet routine, there should be a semicolon after "proc: BPMPROCESSPROC", instead of the comma mark.

Cheers! :-)

Hi ;D

Oops... thank you, I've updated the BASS_FX.PAS in packages :)
