From CVS to SVN

ReZound has now switched from using CVS to SVN.

All old history has been preserved in the new SVN repository.

The CVS controls have been hidden from the project page, but that does not disable CVS still being available. So if you have a checked out CVS tree, you will need need to check out a new tree using a command like:
svn co rezound-svn

Just an Update

Well, it's been a while since 0.7.0beta was released, but development is still very much active. I haven't made a release simply because I haven't finished implementing one of the major goals yet. (I usually like have one ready for each beta release). Hopefully it won't be too long now though. I received an interesting bit of information today: ReZound has been accepted into the core Debian distribution. WOOT! Thanks goes to Guenter Geiger for seeing that through.

Long Time No Release

I know it has been a while since the last release, but I've been busy with my (new) house. However, I have already implemented several major features but want to finish one more (that I've already started) before the next release. CVS is usually pretty stable. So, download from CVS if you want to take a look at some of the new features.

Frontend Change

I've made a pretty significant front end change to a single window design. I would have liked to give the user a choice, but this seems to be a better layout. For anyone interested, please grab the code from cvs and see if you have any problem using the new interface. You may have to stretch out the main window to a larger size the first time you run (since it remembers window sizes from previous runs). Also, alt-1 through alt-0 will switch between opened sounds, and alt-` will swich to the previously focused sound.

0.5.1beta Release

Fixed a nasty bug with ReZound crashing RedHat 8.0 with some other specific sound card and drivers. Thanks goes to Jason Lyons for detecting this. Also fixed a potential segfault related to this bug.

Recording Issue

There is an issue with recording while running (at least) KDE 3.0.3 and/or aRts 1.0.3 but only when you have "full duplex operation" enabled. (under: Control Center -> Sound -> Sound Server -> Sound I/O) It's not just a problem with ReZound, but seems to cause issue with any application trying to record by opening "/dev/dsp". So, if you encounter this, please report it as a bug to the maintainers of KDE, aRts or perhaps even ALSA's OSS emulation. Maybe after some more investigation I will report it.

Working on Convolution for the Next Release

Well, I know I said (somewhere I said it) that I would be working on effects preview for a release soon, but something I'm really wanting to do now is to add convolution. This allows you to do many interesting things, but my main objective is realistic reverb (not actually limited to 'reverb' though). Basically, you can go to any real (or simulate one) environment and record an impulse response (clapping your hands or hitting two sticks together) and then you can apply the characteristics of that environment (maybe a room, hall, outdoors or whatever) to an audio sample. Convolution is simple, but the simple implementation is unbearably slow. Making it fast with the FFT is fun. I've successfully done this and now I'm working on parameters to the convolution action as well as presets for some quick and audible results. If anyone has any suggestions, please add comments to this news item or email me.

0.4.0beta Release

ReZound 0.4.0beta is a new-feature and bug-fix release -- I am making this release simply because it has been a month since the last one. I have bumped ReZound to the beta stage now that I've received relatively few reports concerning compiling issues. See a list of the main changes at

0.3.0alpha Release

ReZound 0.3.0alpha is a new-feature and bug-fix release -- As some totally new code now exists I ask that you please report and bugs or crashes that you may have. Please try to determine under what circumstances the crash or bug appeared in. If all goes well in this release, I think I will bump it to a beta stage. See a list of the main changes at
