Xion Audio Player

skinnable equalizer

Feature Requests and Ideas

Postby shadowman » November 4th, 2009, 8:22 pm

I made a skin, with a sliding out equalizer layer.
When the animation stops I want to open the real equalizer.

So how about a equalizer.psd analogous playlist.psd?

If you click on the red "feedback" button on the left side of your screen, there is a suggestion for EQ control. You may cast a vote for that option. It's currently #2 but very close behind. If you want it, show some love and give it a 3! :)

Peace, Lance

Wow that's strange, its now very far in front. Hah I wonder if someone used a proxy or just got all their friends to vote like crazy for EQ controls!

It's a shame if the feedback forum has been abused in any way. Is it possible to use Profile Integration between the feedback forum and our Xion forum profiles? I suppose it depends on the setup you're using Cliff which I assume is package dependant.

To be honest I don't think it has been abused, it wasn't that far behind anyway. It was on 28 and I still had 3 votes so I stuck them on that. And if the author of this thread saw it, his would've been added, then just 2 more visitors voting would be how it is. Not that unusual, that's what it's for. If you start saying something else is more important now, what's the point in having the system at all? People want skinnable eq's, evidently :)

That system is run by the kind people at http://www.uservoice.com so no, can't really integrate it unfortunately.

Ah yes, I keep forgetting that you can allocate several points instead of just 1. SLoB I'm not going to do something that I think is better or not, its up to the feedback votes to decide. Looks like next up is the EQ. That'll be a quick one to get in anyway. The Media Library is going to take some time, especially since I know that I'll have to make it skinnable.

Another thing that isn't apparent to a lot of people is that along with the Library, or the SUI, I'm going to have to convert to Hardware rendering. This is a massive task in and of itself. The reason is that due to resizeable windows, rendering is now rather slow when you resize your playlist to cover the screen (If you have a large screen res).

Remember, the Xion renderer is currently a software pixel renderer that I wrote. I think its now starting to reach the limits of its abilities, especially when attempting to render many layers, all at large resolutions. There's only so much your CPU can handle.

On my desktop, it attempts to render 1920x1200 (2,304,000 pixels) at least once. I use dirty rectangles, but when you're scrolling the Playlist, its almost full screen so I'm rendering however many layers are below that times 2,304,000. So on the default skin that's at a minimum 6,912,000 pixels (at least 3 layers, blended together) every 33ms. :|

Obviously I have many optimizations in place such as not blending if the layer isn't transparent, etc. Anyway, pushing that on a GPU would be nothing at all, so I'm hoping to convert to Hardware rendering soon too :)

I'll begin work on them once this build has gone public. Should be pretty soon now, Lance is just adding some final touches to his skin and we should be good to go!

Oh Yea, hardware rendering is going to be key for sure. It just looked a bit suspect as one person asked for eq then all of a sudden it shot past the ML which up until then had been steadily in front for some while. But hey it's what the ppl want innit ;)

In some ways it should be easy to inherit the pl skinnable window but then obviously the ML internal stuff is going to be more complex.

Cliff, will you be doing a roadmap for the ML? will it have queries for song retrieval, automatic tagging, get album art etc?

I'd like the skinnable equalizer too, especially coming with 'jimmy jatt' skin. If not the very equalizer, something to regulate treble boost. I've never seen anything like animated vinyls skin before, it's amazing, and want it to be complete for comfort electro music listening.
I used xmplay before Xion, and comfortable equalizer which is easy to get without menu- just to pull it out by mouse and then pull back- is very important for me.

Skinnable EQs are already available. It just hasn't been discussed much because skin development died out right around the same time.
I shoot and ask questions later.

Take no offense of it.

Yea look at the layer refs at the slider objects http://xion.r2.com.au/index.php?page=layerref for getting the sliders in there. The layer help page is your friend ;)
