Xion Audio Player

What is Xion programmed with?

General Discussion about Xion Audio Player

I am a musician, aspiring programmer and I am really interested in the Xion player!

I have a few questions for the programmer(s)

1. What did you use to program this with ?

2. Would it be possible to use the FMOD library and somehow integrate some of the features into Xion? Or would that require scrapping what you already have and just building the engine around Fmod?

Im sure you know this but the FMOD library is free to use for non-commercial projects and is absolutely incredible.

3. Would ASIO support ever be integrated for DJ's and musicians?


4. Also would it be possible too if users could use steingberg VST plugins in the future?


Thanks for this great program !

Welcome!

C++ using Win32 API calls

I actually started with Fmod then moved away as it didn't allow me to support as many file formats.

I can look at this in the future, it's supported by the library I use, I think there were just some downfalls to using it.

I did a quick check and yes it looks like I'd be able to support this as they offer a free development plugin.
