Projects / AeonWave


AeonWave is a cross platform, hardware accelerated, multi-threaded, and versatile stereo and 4D audio mixing library. By combining hardware accelerated rendering and a low memory footprint the library can handle almost any situation, from virtual synthesizer apps for smart phones to immersive simulation. It has a small, easy to use, fault tolerant, and consistent API, low latency support by using hardware acceleration, simultaneous support for stereo and 4D audio, audio frames with sub-mixing capabilities, support for stereo and 3D audio effects and filters, and a Freeware supplemental OpenAL implementation.

    Release Notes: The license conditions were changed to allow anyone to include the binaries with their product. A reorganization of the code resulted in rendering speed improvements of up to 75%. There were WASAPI, ALSA, and WAVE file backend fixes and improvements. Surround Sound, Spatial, and HRTF playback were tweaked.

      Release Notes: Distance delayed state changes were added in addition to delayed starting/stopping of emitters. Hardware volume support, channel selection, and Auto Gain Control for capturing were added. The File backend was completely rewritten and now supports more WAV file types and MP3 for output if libmp3lame is found on the system. An option to automatically record to file (while playing back to audio hardware) was added. This release adds the extra step to track down and fix problems.

          Release Notes: This release fixes two important bugs. xmlFree from the ZeroXML library was exposed by libaax, which could cause a naming clash between libxml2 when both are included in a single project. The input parameters for filters and effects are now put through a sanity check when calling the SetState function. It is highly recommended to upgrade.
