Can it be?
After all that time?
A new version?
Yes, it can be, and here it is :) (more ...)
Unfortunately the site was down yesterday, due to ... uhm ... aliens who ... uh ... infiltrated the hosting company and ... uh ... stole all the nerds who operate the servers. Yeah, totally. And it had absolutely nothing to do with me being lazy and forgetting to pay the server rent. I swear!
Anyway, I've been doing all sorts of stuff lately, but not working on anything productive in my spare time, kind of taking a vacation from my hobby project. So the next version of boxen will probably take another 3-4 weeks to come out. I've started work already about a week ago, and I'm in the process of finishing the first major changes, so stay tuned.
Here it is! I'm really excited about this release, for a couple of reasons. It fixes the problems in the last release (especially the very embarrassing limiter bug), brings a lot of new stuff (most importantly: support for VST plugins, both instruments and effects) and a completely restructured Android app.(more ...)
... so I'll take some time to finish it. I did a little experiment over the weekend and everything went better than expected. It would be a shame to release boxen with all that stuff disabled, but I need some time to build a UI for it. When you see what I've been doing I think you'll agree that it was worth the wait :) (more ...)
Yesterday I loudly proclaimed that boxen now has a limiter, and today I must - shamefully - admit that this is wrong. I fell into a trap that I fell in often before, and will probably fall into again in my future life as software developer.(more ...)
This is a good one: two major bugs that plagued boxen for a long, long time are now finally fixed (of course - as everyone who writes software knows - you can never be 100% sure about that, but I'm very confident that they're finally fixed). (more ...)
Just a quick snapshot. Dropping files from Explorer works again (to be specific: dropping into the browser tab does, dropping into playlists doesn't), so I thought that's a good opportunity for a new release.(more ...)
