BassBox insight

You will find under this post the latest patch: bassbox_01.zip that is provided without any mp3 file.
This patch introduces new features like "interprocess communication" (see below WM_COPYDATA)

  • Latest zskin.inc (skin engine source code compatible VISTA / XP)
  • New AudioFX (add audio effects to BASS.dll from Ian Luck).
  • BassBox.mp3 (royalty free mp3 for demo purpose).


Using BassBox

  • BassBox is an audio player compatible with 2000, XP, and VISTA.
  • You can start it from the command line, providing the name of one or several audio files.
  • It accepts an unlimited number of files, or folders, when using drag and drop from the Explorer.
  • You can also drag file(s), or folders, directly onto the BassBox desktop shortcut if any, but then you are limited to the maximum lpCommand length size (something around 6000 bytes).
  • Use left and right arrow buttons to navigate the audio list (when multiple audio files are being used).
  • The Play button, starts playing or resume from pause, the "Pause" button pauses audio.
  • The VOL trackbar allows to setup the "local" application's audio volume.
  • DirectSound audio effects: reverberation, chorus, flanger, echo, sound rotation.


BASS.DLL

All the details about this fantastic audio library, from Ian Luck, can be found there:
www.un4seen.com


WM_COPYDATA

This message is very handy when you need to perform "interprocess communication", zskin.inc has two new functions, zSendPrivateMsg and zGetPrivateMsg, for this purpose:

Code: [Select]
TYPE COPYDATASTRUCT
    dwData AS DWORD
    cbData AS DWORD
    lpData AS DWORD
END TYPE

%ZM_STRINGDATA = 0

FUNCTION zSendPrivateMsg(BYVAL hFound AS LONG, BYVAL UseMsg AS LONG, BYVAL sBuff AS STRING) AS LONG

    LOCAL cds AS COPYDATASTRUCT, LenBuff AS LONG

    LenBuff = LEN(sBuff)
    REDIM Buf(LenBuff) AS BYTE
    POKE$ VARPTR(Buf(0)), sBuff
    cds.dwData = UseMsg
    cds.cbData = UBOUND(Buf) - LBOUND(Buf) + 1
    cds.lpData = VARPTR(Buf(0))
    FUNCTION = SendMessage(hFound, %WM_COPYDATA, LenBuff, VARPTR(cds))

END FUNCTION

FUNCTION zGetPrivateMsg(BYREF sPrivateMsg AS STRING, BYVAL wParam AS LONG, BYVAL lParam AS LONG) AS LONG

    LOCAL cds AS COPYDATASTRUCT

    REDIM Buf(wParam) AS BYTE
    CALL MoveMemory(cds, BYVAL lParam, SIZEOF(cds))
    CALL MoveMemory(buf(0), BYVAL cds.lpData, cds.cbData)
    sPrivateMsg = PEEK$(VARPTR(buf(0)), wParam)
    FUNCTION = cds.dwData

END FUNCTION

and the WM_COPYDATA that must be handled into the main winproc:

Code: [Select]
    CASE %WM_COPYDATA
       ' wParam holds the string length
       ' lParam holds the Byte array address
         dwData = zGetPrivateMsg(sDataString, wParam, lParam)
         IF dwData = %ZM_STRINGDATA THEN
            IF LEN(sDataString) THEN
               nCount = PARSECOUNT(sDataString, $zLim)
               hList = zGetMainItem(%ID_PlayList)
               CALL ListDeleteAll(hList)
               FOR K = 1 TO nCount
                   ListAdd(hList, PARSE$(sDataString, $zLim, K))
               NEXT
               CALL ListSelectPlus(hList, 1)
               gzAudioFile = ListGetText(hList, 1)
               CALL BassChannelPlay()
               IF nCount > 1 THEN
                  CALL EnableWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_LEFTBUTTON), %TRUE)
                  CALL zUpdateWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_LEFTBUTTON), 0)
                  CALL EnableWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_RIGHTBUTTON), %TRUE)
                  CALL zUpdateWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_RIGHTBUTTON), 0)
               ELSE
                  CALL EnableWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_LEFTBUTTON), %FALSE)
                  CALL zUpdateWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_LEFTBUTTON), 0)
                  CALL EnableWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_RIGHTBUTTON), %FALSE)
                  CALL zUpdateWindow(zGetMainItem(%ID_RIGHTBUTTON), 0)
               END IF
            END IF
         END IF
         FUNCTION = 1: EXIT FUNCTION



OpenGL

This demo uses OpenGL to render graphicaly the stereo audio levels, everything is embedded into the provided source code (no need to use a third party OpenGL addon).

If you try it with VISTA you will see absolutly no difference with DirectX, performances are the same despite what some people say over the NET.

All the hard stuff to decode the audio channel is done there:

Code: [Select]
'// Init the color array
SUB ColorInit()
    DIM gColor(1 TO 33) AS LONG
    gColor(1)  = RGB(32,32,32)
    gColor(2)  = RGB(0,44,233)
    gColor(3)  = RGB(0,67,210)
    gColor(4)  = RGB(0,89,187)
    gColor(5)  = RGB(0,112,164)
    gColor(6)  = RGB(0,135,142)
    gColor(7)  = RGB(0,159,117)
    gColor(8)  = RGB(0,183,88)
    gColor(9)  = RGB(0,207,58)
    gColor(10) = RGB(0,231,29)
    gColor(11) = RGB(26,234,26)

    gColor(16) = RGB(147,248,11)
    gColor(17) = RGB(168,250,8)
    gColor(18) = RGB(189,253,5)
    gColor(19) = RGB(210,255,2)
    gColor(20) = RGB(233,255,0)
    gColor(21) = RGB(255,255,0)
    gColor(22) = RGB(255,251,0)
    gColor(23) = RGB(255,235,0)
    gColor(24) = RGB(255,215,0)
    gColor(25) = RGB(255,196,0)
    gColor(26) = RGB(255,176,0)

END SUB

FUNCTION LevelColr(BYVAL nLevel AS LONG) AS LONG
    LOCAL nColor AS LONG
    nLevel = nLevel + 1: IF nLevel > 33 THEN nLevel = 33
    nColor = 0: IF nLevel > 0 THEN nColor = gColor(nLevel)
    FUNCTION = nColor
END FUNCTION

FUNCTION SolvePeak(BYVAL nValue AS LONG, BYVAL nTotal AS LONG) AS LONG
    LOCAL nRet AS LONG
    nRet = 0: IF nTotal THEN nRet = (nValue * 100) / nTotal

END FUNCTION

FUNCTION BassChannelGetLevel () AS LONG
    LOCAl nRet AS LONG
    IF gnAudioPause = %FALSE THEN
       IF gnAudioChannel THEN
          nRet = BASS_ChannelGetLevel(gnAudioChannel)
       END IF
    END IF
    FUNCTION = nRet
END FUNCTION

and the OpenGL drawing is done there:

Code: [Select]

       rXangle = rXangle + 0.3 '// grDXangle
       rYangle = rYangle + 0.5 '// grDYangle
       rZangle = rZangle + 0.7 '// grDZangle

       pulse = MAX(nLValue, nRValue) / 7

       '// Pulsating section
       CALL glMatrixMode(%GL_PROJECTION)
       CALL glLoadIdentity()

       CALL wglMakeCurrent(glDC, glRC)

       CALL glClear(%GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT OR %GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT)
       CALL glLoadIdentity()
       CALL gluLookAt(0.0, 0.0, 5.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0)
       CALL glRotated(rXangle, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0)
       CALL glRotated(rYangle, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0)
       CALL glRotated(rZangle, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0)

       '// Draw Diamond
       RGBColor = LevelColr(nLValue)
       R2 = zGetRValue(RGBColor)
       G2 = zGetGValue(RGBColor)
       B2 = zGetBValue(RGBColor)

       RGBColor = LevelColr(nRValue)
       R1 = zGetRValue(RGBColor)
       G1 = zGetGValue(RGBColor)
       B1 = zGetBValue(RGBColor)

       '//Up
       CALL glBegin(%GL_TRIANGLE_FAN)
       CALL glColor3ub( R2, G2, B2): CALL glVertex3d( 0.0, 1.414, 0.0)
       CALL glColor3ub( R1, G1, B1): CALL glVertex3d( 1.0, 0.0, 1.0)
       CALL glColor3ub( 0, 0, 0):    CALL glVertex3d( 1.0, 0.0,-1.0)

       CALL glColor3ub( 64, 64, 64): CALL glVertex3d(-1.0, 0.0, 1.0)

       CALL glColor3ub( R1, G1, B1): CALL glVertex3d(-1.0, 0.0,-1.0)
       CALL glColor3ub( 64, 64, 64): CALL glVertex3d( 1.0, 0.0,-1.0)
       CALL glColor3ub( R1, G1, B1): CALL glVertex3d( 1.0, 0.0, 1.0)
       CALL glEnd()

       '//Refresh display
       CALL SwapBuffers(glDC)
       CALL zUpdateWindow(glCtrl, 0)

    END IF
    CALL ReleaseDC(glCtrl, glDC)
END SUB

When used on VISTA it is very important to perform a zUpdateWindow after SwapBuffers to force DWM to refresh its internal buffer (or the OpenGL display seems to crawl).

       '//Refresh display
       CALL SwapBuffers(glDC)
       CALL zUpdateWindow(glCtrl, 0)


Smooth animation

I am using my TIMER technic to perform smooth animation without using the common message pump that hogs the CPU:

          CALL SetTimer(hMain, %OPENGL_TIMER, 0, %NULL)
          WHILE GetMessage(Msg, %NULL, 0, 0)  ' SK_MILLISECOND
               IF IsDialogMessage(hMain, Msg) = %FALSE THEN
                   CALL TranslateMessage(Msg)
                   CALL DispatchMessage(Msg)
               END IF
          WEND
          CALL KillTimer(hMain, %OPENGL_TIMER)

Patrice,

thanks for this perfect player.
It is nice to just drop file on rotating cube to play it :)

The postprocess effects are very interesting too !

Kent,

Thanks for the feedback.

I am trying from my best to post only high quality source code there, to keep this forum's level as high as possible.

This is my way to say thanks to José for all his hard work, and generous contributions to the PowerBASIC's community in general, and SDK coders in particular.  ;)

BassBox (added LED's view meter)
« Reply #5 on: October 10, 2007, 09:09:34 PM »
This new version has a real time stereo channel view meter, with vanishing LEDs.

This code is responsible for the drawing of the LEDs directly onto the main window DC, using ARGB color to be compatible with the zSkin VISTA BLUR and CRYSTAL mode.
Code: [Select]
'      //Start drawing the ViewMeter's LED directly onto the main window DC
     ' Compute both channel colors
       OkL = 0: OkR = 0
       nLpeak = nLpeak \ 320: nRpeak = nRpeak \ 320
       FOR K = 1 TO 100
           IF K <= nLpeak THEN
              C = K \ 3: gPeak(K,1) = gColor(C)
           ELSE
              IF gPeak(K,1) AND OkL& = 0 THEN
                 gPeak(K,1) = SetRGB(gPeak(K,1)): IF OkL = 0 AND gPeak(K,1) = 0 THEN OkL = K
              ELSE
                 gPeak(K,1) = 0
              END IF
           END IF
           IF K <= nRpeak THEN
              C = K \ 3: gPeak(K,2) = gColor(C)
           ELSE
              IF gPeak(K,2) AND OkR& = 0 THEN
                 gPeak(K,2) = SetRGB(gPeak(K,2)): IF OkR = 0 AND gPeak(K,2) = 0 THEN OkR = K
              ELSE
                 gPeak(K,2) = 0
              END IF
           END IF
       NEXT
     ' Draw both channels directly onto main window DC
       hDC = GetDC(zMainWindow(0))
       CALL GetClientRect(zMainWindow(0), rc)
       nCell = 13: CellH = 3: CellW = 32: x = rc.nRight - 137: Y = 54
       FOR K = nCell TO 1 STEP -1
           C = SolvePeak(K, nCell)
           CALL zPaintBrushBitmap(hDC, x, y, CellW, CellH, zColorARGB(220, gPeak(C,1)))
           CALL zPaintBrushBitmap(hDC, x + CellW + CellH , y, CellW, CellH, zColorARGB(220, gPeak(C,2)))
           y = y + CellH + 1
       NEXT
       CALL ReleaseDC(zMainWindow(0), hDC)
'      // End ViewMeter section


The realtime LED dissolve effect is computed there:

Code: [Select]
FUNCTION SetRGB(BYVAL colorRGB AS DWORD) AS LONG
    LOCAL R, G, B AS BYTE
    R = (colorRGB AND &H000000FF???): IF R > 31 THEN R = R - 32 ELSE R = 0
    SHIFT RIGHT colorRGB, 8
    G = (colorRGB??? AND &H000000FF???): IF G > 31 THEN G = G - 32 ELSE G = 0
    SHIFT RIGHT colorRGB, 8
    B = (colorRGB AND &H000000FF???): IF B > 31 THEN B = B - 32 ELSE B = 0
    FUNCTION = RGB(R,G,B)
END FUNCTION

The provided zSkin.inc fixes a small problem when switching from Crystal to Standard mode, the opacity was not properly restored because the region was still active.

I would be very pleased if somebody else could write another OpenGL visual effect for BassBox...

Hi Patrice,

perfect sample, I cannot promise but if I will have at least some time free I will try to add alternative visualisation.

One tip - could you please stop writing fast programs :D
On my PC it runs so fast I can see "tearing" - effect when v-sync is off ( more frames per second than Hz of device ). It can be solved using wglSwapIntervalEXT.

I will try to implement it when I will have more time.


Thanks a lot,
Petr

BassBox (to increase the LED dissolve delay)
« Reply #7 on: October 10, 2007, 10:09:01 PM »
If you want to increase the LED's dissolve delay then try playing with bStep like this:

FUNCTION SetRGB(BYVAL colorRGB AS DWORD) AS LONG
    LOCAL R, G, B, bStep AS BYTE
    bStep = 4 ' 32
    R = (colorRGB AND &H000000FF???): IF R > bStep - 1 THEN R = R - bStep ELSE R = 0
    SHIFT RIGHT colorRGB, 8
    G = (colorRGB??? AND &H000000FF???): IF G > bStep - 1 THEN G = G - bStep ELSE G = 0
    SHIFT RIGHT colorRGB, 8
    B = (colorRGB AND &H000000FF???): IF B > bStep - 1 THEN B = B - bStep ELSE B = 0
    FUNCTION = RGB(R,G,B)
END FUNCTION


A value of 24 or 32 makes it more responsive.

I like the new LED bars a nice visual addition to the fascinating glowing mineral look of the main pyramid. It looks like it is glowing with energy with the cool coloring setup, really neat effect!!

Patrice,

I am fascinated by your creations.

will Bassbox support other audio formats: I am thinking of MIDI in particular, (picking up from the soft synth etc), also WMA and WAV.

I would like to try some  polyhedra. These would be better suited as GLISTs since they may contain 100s of faces.
They can be placed one inside the other and rolled, permutating the shading with the music. Can DirectAudio provide frequency data as well as amplitude?

I have them ALL already in my commercial projects, that have been broken by all the changes done to the low level audio API in VISTA.

BassBox is a kind of laboratory to experiment with VISTA...

So far the current player should/is already able to play WAV PCM files, as well as OGG VORBIS and AIFF, with minor modification(s).

For MIDI file, Rafaelo posted some very nice PB examples that you can find in POFF, or I can send them to you if you can't find them.

Thanks Patrice.

I am certainly worried about Vista.

How deeply has Vista broken the low level interfaces for Midi and Wav. Is it still possible to set up a WAV buffer and feed it WAV bytes or send individual midi commands to the on-board MIDI ?

Charles,

The main VISTA issue is with the MIXER API, not with PCM audio (wave).
