JBuzzer 1.05 released

JBuzzer is a desktop application that allows mapping the computer keyboard to audio samples. It's main purpose is to bring some fun into the office by expressing oneself with well-chosen statements.

Release often release early, thats what the documents say. 1.04 sure contained major improvements but still was released too early.
Two unreported major bugs were introduced by refactoring that were not detected in the insufficient release test. So version 1.05 still does not introduce important features to come but stability. ... read more

jbuzzer Alpha2 binaries released.

jbuzzer Alpha is a quite stable release that already supports:

- Short audio clips (preloaded), which is the main
purpose: hit the keyboard and let a sample talk.
- Streams. You can also use it to listen to music
(there are players like winamp or the brilliant
http://www.javazoom.net/jlgui/jlgui.htm

- Unlimited (as much as your screen or mem could fill)
amount of samples.
- Volume control per sample.
- Multiple playbacks at the same time.
- Persistance of the data-model in xml (JSX).... read more
