New version is up and ready:
This release fixes compatibility with PulseAudio 0.9.21, and makes PulseAudio
the default backend (if PA is not available, it will still fall back to ALSA,
OSS, etc). The PulseAudio backend will also attempt to match an output format
and frequency as reported by the default sink, if an override was not set in
the config file (so if Pulse is configured for 5.1 output, OpenAL Soft will
automatically pick that up and render 5.1; no extra configuration needed).
The crash with the echo effect is fixed, and reverb has been improved. It now
supports the Modulation and Echo properties. Multi-channel sources are also
passed through the auxiliary sends, as a mono mix, so they will work with
auxiliary slot effects.
There is also a new head-dampening config option, which slightly filters
sources emanating behind the listener, for mono and stereo output. It also
supports the AL_EXT_source_distance_model extension, as described here
Additionally, there is a new config option to select between 3 resamplers:
nearest (no interpolation), linear (default), and cosine.
The next version will hopefully see more of the experimental extensions
completed, better resamplers (such as cubic), and more. I'll also try to get
out more frequent releases if major issues turn up.
Thanks for looking! Please feel free to try it out, and let me know how it
works for you. :)
