Hi Guys,

Okay, I've just uploaded Beta 0.2:



This beta should correct the interval 0 error John reported and hopefully Larry's report on the selected index value too (I am taking an educated guess on that one).

Regarding the Unable to cast Com Object error, that is less clear.  To eliminate the use of Windows Media Player, I've had to add a different third party tool called NAudio, so we can only go by the error description NAudio is returning.  It may be that NAudio is balking at either the type of sound file selected, or the device you selected.

For those of you receiving the Unable to cast Com Object error, please try playing a .wav or .mp3 file and let me know if those file types play properly.  If those file type won't play, please try selecting a different sound card and try the .wav or .mp3 again.

Please let me know how you make out!

Thanks for all the testing so far!

First Scott,

A big thank you!

Configuration: TS-850 with a USB rig control and a SignaLink USB as my sound card.

1.  Selected Speakers (2-USB Audio CODEC)
2. Changed default audio output on the computer 
3.  Keying Options was set to "None"
3.  Hit Play F1 File
4.  Started to work, but it was keying the radio like a badly adjusted VOX (rapidly).  I could hear the SignaLink's relay chattering away.
5. After about 20 seconds Got an error "Unable to play".
6. Tried it with "Rig Interface" selected.  Same thing. Rig Keyed, but SignaLink chattering away.


Hope this helps.

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!

Scott,

The Beta 2 did correct the index error. I can now play audio files from the F1 key but have not successfully been able to play them from any other F key. Also, when I make a recording that is a .M4A the program does not like it. When hitting the F1 Key, it will play the recording once, then the following times, it will key the rig with no audio. When using and MP3 File it works OK.

Scott,

Out and about for a few hours. I did try f2 and it did play.

Correct, no audio on the second loop, but indication of playing. Yes, esc and f1 works for the first loop.

Will do some more testing when i get home.

And as i stated in a followup, arrl 10 meter 5.3 works fine on interrnal sound card.

Thanks,

Steve, ai3ks

Hi Steve,


Does this only apply to the F1 loop?

There is no audio at all after the first time, but the yellow label indicates it is playing?

If you press Esc and then F1 again, does it play normally the first time? 

I'm trying everything I can think of to duplicate it, but so far everything continues to work properly here.

Using the audio. I plugged into the Mon jack and it only plays the wma file on the first pass. Changed to the internal sound card and works the same. No audio on the second pass. OS is Windows7 Ultimate.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the report.  What method are you using to key your Singalink?  I only use audio to key my Signalink here, but it is keying fine.

Scott,

Just installed Beta.2. The only issue I have noted is that the F1 key for phone shows fine in ACL (yellow box with wma file) when it loops, but it only keys the Signalink on the first pass. CW works ok. Using Signalink, Winkey and Icom 706 MKIIG.

Hi Guys,

Okay, I've just uploaded Beta 0.2:



This beta should correct the interval 0 error John reported and hopefully Larry's report on the selected index value too (I am taking an educated guess on that one).

Regarding the Unable to cast Com Object error, that is less clear.  To eliminate the use of Windows Media Player, I've had to add a different third party tool called NAudio, so we can only go by the error description NAudio is returning.  It may be that NAudio is balking at either the type of sound file selected, or the device you selected.

For those of you receiving the Unable to cast Com Object error, please try playing a .wav or .mp3 file and let me know if those file types play properly.  If those file type won't play, please try selecting a different sound card and try the .wav or .mp3 again.

Please let me know how you make out!

Thanks for all the testing so far!

First Scott,

A big thank you!

Configuration: TS-850 with a USB rig control and a SignaLink USB as my sound card.

1.  Selected Speakers (2-USB Audio CODEC)
2. Changed default audio output on the computer 
3.  Keying Options was set to "None"
3.  Hit Play F1 File
4.  Started to work, but it was keying the radio like a badly adjusted VOX (rapidly).  I could hear the SignaLink's relay chattering away.
5. After about 20 seconds Got an error "Unable to play".
6. Tried it with "Rig Interface" selected.  Same thing. Rig Keyed, but SignaLink chattering away.


Hope this helps.

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!

Hi Steve,

Does this only apply to the F1 loop?

There is no audio at all after the first time, but the yellow label indicates it is playing?

If you press Esc and then F1 again, does it play normally the first time? 

I'm trying everything I can think of to duplicate it, but so far everything continues to work properly here.

Using the audio. I plugged into the Mon jack and it only plays the wma file on the first pass. Changed to the internal sound card and works the same. No audio on the second pass. OS is Windows7 Ultimate.

Scott,

Just installed Beta.2. The only issue I have noted is that the F1 key for phone shows fine in ACL (yellow box with wma file) when it loops, but it only keys the Signalink on the first pass. CW works ok. Using Signalink, Winkey and Icom 706 MKIIG.

Keep up the Great Work.

Just tried the Phone setup on ARRL 10 meter log 5.3 and it repeats as it should on the internal sound card. I did notice that the message in the yellow box was different. Hope that helps.

Scott,

Just installed Beta.2. The only issue I have noted is that the F1 key for phone shows fine in ACL (yellow box with wma file) when it loops, but it only keys the Signalink on the first pass. CW works ok. Using Signalink, Winkey and Icom 706 MKIIG.

Keep up the Great Work.

Hi Guys,

Okay, I've just uploaded Beta 0.2:



This beta should correct the interval 0 error John reported and hopefully Larry's report on the selected index value too (I am taking an educated guess on that one).

Regarding the Unable to cast Com Object error, that is less clear.  To eliminate the use of Windows Media Player, I've had to add a different third party tool called NAudio, so we can only go by the error description NAudio is returning.  It may be that NAudio is balking at either the type of sound file selected, or the device you selected.

For those of you receiving the Unable to cast Com Object error, please try playing a .wav or .mp3 file and let me know if those file types play properly.  If those file type won't play, please try selecting a different sound card and try the .wav or .mp3 again.

Please let me know how you make out!

Thanks for all the testing so far!

First Scott,

A big thank you!

Configuration: TS-850 with a USB rig control and a SignaLink USB as my sound card.

1.  Selected Speakers (2-USB Audio CODEC)
2. Changed default audio output on the computer 
3.  Keying Options was set to "None"
3.  Hit Play F1 File
4.  Started to work, but it was keying the radio like a badly adjusted VOX (rapidly).  I could hear the SignaLink's relay chattering away.
5. After about 20 seconds Got an error "Unable to play".
6. Tried it with "Rig Interface" selected.  Same thing. Rig Keyed, but SignaLink chattering away.


Hope this helps.

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!

Re: IC-7300

Art,
You can work the digital modes with ACL. On my IC-7300 I had to take rig control off of the usb port and put it on the CI-V port. What that does is in ACL is it now sees 2 com ports. One for the Soundcard on the usb and rig control on the CI-V port.

It took me a bit to figure that out because the owner's manual in IC-7300 is not very clear. I currently using FLDIGI and ACL well as the other various contest programs that Scott has produce for us to use. I do both Digital and CW with no issues.

Hi Guys,

Steve, good call, I just tested with my SignaLink here.  While I never got to the Com object error, by turning the DLY on the SignaLink down, I was able to simulate the rapidly keying, poorly adjusted VOX that Lawrence described.  Setting my DLY at about the 9:00 o'clock position cleans it right up.

Try turning up the delay on the Signalink slightly. I had a similar problem with Feldhell and that took care of the chattering relay.

1.  Selected Speakers (2-USB Audio CODEC)
2. Changed default audio output on the computer 
3.  Keying Options was set to "None"
3.  Hit Play F1 File
4.  Started to work, but it was keying the radio like a badly adjusted VOX (rapidly).  I could hear the SignaLink's relay chattering away.
5. After about 20 seconds Got an error "Unable to play".
6. Tried it with "Rig Interface" selected.  Same thing. Rig Keyed, but SignaLink chattering away.


Hope this helps.

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the report.  What method are you using to key your Singalink?  I only use audio to key my Signalink here, but it is keying fine.

Scott,

Just installed Beta.2. The only issue I have noted is that the F1 key for phone shows fine in ACL (yellow box with wma file) when it loops, but it only keys the Signalink on the first pass. CW works ok. Using Signalink, Winkey and Icom 706 MKIIG.

Keep up the Great Work.

Hi Guys,

Okay, I've just uploaded Beta 0.2:



This beta should correct the interval 0 error John reported and hopefully Larry's report on the selected index value too (I am taking an educated guess on that one).

Regarding the Unable to cast Com Object error, that is less clear.  To eliminate the use of Windows Media Player, I've had to add a different third party tool called NAudio, so we can only go by the error description NAudio is returning.  It may be that NAudio is balking at either the type of sound file selected, or the device you selected.

For those of you receiving the Unable to cast Com Object error, please try playing a .wav or .mp3 file and let me know if those file types play properly.  If those file type won't play, please try selecting a different sound card and try the .wav or .mp3 again.

Please let me know how you make out!

Thanks for all the testing so far!

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!

Lawrence,

Try turning up the delay on the Signalink slightly. I had a similar problem with Feldhell and that took care of the chattering relay.

First Scott,

A big thank you!

Configuration: TS-850 with a USB rig control and a SignaLink USB as my sound card.

1.  Selected Speakers (2-USB Audio CODEC)
2. Changed default audio output on the computer 
3.  Keying Options was set to "None"
3.  Hit Play F1 File
4.  Started to work, but it was keying the radio like a badly adjusted VOX (rapidly).  I could hear the SignaLink's relay chattering away.
5. After about 20 seconds Got an error "Unable to play".
6. Tried it with "Rig Interface" selected.  Same thing. Rig Keyed, but SignaLink chattering away.


Hope this helps.

Re: Please Test AC Log 5.8 Beta!

Hi Guys,

Okay, I've just uploaded Beta 0.2:



This beta should correct the interval 0 error John reported and hopefully Larry's report on the selected index value too (I am taking an educated guess on that one).

Regarding the Unable to cast Com Object error, that is less clear.  To eliminate the use of Windows Media Player, I've had to add a different third party tool called NAudio, so we can only go by the error description NAudio is returning.  It may be that NAudio is balking at either the type of sound file selected, or the device you selected.

For those of you receiving the Unable to cast Com Object error, please try playing a .wav or .mp3 file and let me know if those file types play properly.  If those file type won't play, please try selecting a different sound card and try the .wav or .mp3 again.

Please let me know how you make out!

Thanks for all the testing so far!

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!

Re: Please Test AC Log 5.8 Beta!

Lawrence (VA3IQ)
 

First Scott,

A big thank you!

Configuration: TS-850 with a USB rig control and a SignaLink USB as my sound card.

1.  Selected Speakers (2-USB Audio CODEC)
2. Changed default audio output on the computer 
3.  Keying Options was set to "None"
3.  Hit Play F1 File
4.  Started to work, but it was keying the radio like a badly adjusted VOX (rapidly).  I could hear the SignaLink's relay chattering away.
5. After about 20 seconds Got an error "Unable to play".
6. Tried it with "Rig Interface" selected.  Same thing. Rig Keyed, but SignaLink chattering away.


Hope this helps.

73 de VA5LD

AC Log 5.8 Beta! - Flex 6500

Scott;

Tested the new phone setup with my Flex 6500 all works well. Just selected the same com port used to poll the Flex, rig interface and the DAX TX Audio "sound card". Seems to work fine!

My bad for not explaining better.  I meant on the actual rig interface screen where you select your rig and enter the HEX codes for the reading of mode & frequency.  But I just installed it and wanted to let everyone know that you DO have to have the rig interface enabled and configured for this feature to work.  When I select none and try the new voice player out, it doesn't key the rig.  With it enabled, it works flawlessly.  Or at least it appears to  :P  After I get dinner taken care of, I will give a proper test.

Yes, if you select the new Rig Interface option, you have to have rig interface enabled on the Rig Interface set up form.

Does rig control have to be enabled for the ph rig control to work?  I can't wait to get home and test this but was curious about the rig control.

Yes, if you select the new Rig Interface option, you have to have rig interface enabled on the Rig Interface set up form.

Does rig control have to be enabled for the ph rig control to work?  I can't wait to get home and test this but was curious about the rig control.

Hi Gang,

AC Log 5.8 Beta is now ready for testing!  I really, really need as many of you testing this new Beta as possible.  Enhancements include:

-  I have removed all references to Windows Media Player (I think) and approached the playing of your recorded sound audio files in an entirely different way.  

I have also added the ability to select a sound card for your audio voice wave files to play.  Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup and select the sound card of your choice.  Remember, this only affects the sound files on your Phone Setup form.  The rest of the sounds (such as DX, Duplicate, etc.) will still play from your default sound card.

Finally, you will notice on the Phone Setup Form an additional keying option, via rig interface.  So far, only Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus have been added.  If you have rig interface enabled, your rig should key while the sound is being played and unkey when it stops, when this option is selected.  If you have a different flavor of rig you would like to see supported, please e-mail the specific transmit and receive commands direct.

Please test this beta.  Even if these audio enhancements don't interest you (or will only interest you in the contesting software), please give this beta a try now!  It is the only way I can determine if the new audio code will be compatible generically. 

I also need a great deal of confidence that this is the correct approach before I take on the very large task of retrofitting all the contest software with these enhancements. 

To test, just uninstall Amateur Contact Log from Windows Control Panel.  Then install this version:


Click Settings > Transmit > Phone Setup, browse to some audio files on your PC and see how they play from AC Log's main form.

Also, please double check to make sure CW F keys continue to work properly (remember you must be in CW mode for the F keys to be associated with CW).

Please let me know how you make out!
