Release notes for v17.7

 

  • Changed: Improvements on the interaction between the 1st and the 2nd stage of the compressor/limiter. Less limiting more compression which results in a better handling of transient sounds.
  • Changed: Extended the leveler attack to 400ms
  • Added: Phase rotator to correct asymetrical tones for better clipping. You'll find the settings in the processing tab.

I've downloaded and extracted the files into their own folder but cannot seem to get the 32bit version to work

 

I get some message about the "side by side configuration is wrong" when I go to start it am I missing something there doesn't appear to be much info and what you need to do.

 

Are there files missing from the ZIP files?

Hope you get better results than us who've already tried testing it from the RadioDJ forums.

 

the 64bit version alerts the windows defender, the 32bit doesn't open at all.

Unfortunately, I get a similar result and have been unable to try it out at all.

 

The download of the 64bit version gets blocked by Windows Defender with "Failed - Virus detected" (although the Defender Security Center does not give any information about it).

The download of the 32bit version gets blocked by Chrome with "qmod_32bit_17.7.zip is dangerous so Chrome has blocked it." even before Defender can check it.

 

The screenshots look very interesting. Have you considered having your software reviewed to get any false flags removed?

 

For Chrome you could go here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/3258249 to find out what to do.

For Windows Defender you could go here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/filesubmission

Hi,

Just checked my setup here.

There should be five files in your install dir:

Qmod.exe, qps.exe, Qmod.ico, portaudio_x64.dll and license.txt

That's all.

The message about Side-By-Side suggest a missing dll but I'm not a windows expert so I can't really help you with that.

If you have no idea as to what's going on then we're really not going to be able to use this POS.

 

Yes I know what files were required BUT Several people have tested this with the same results as Papabear - Windows Defender doesn't like something about your coding.

 

I'll try testing again when you've managed to get a working version out.

 

It would be nice to get it tested but in its current state we can't do much.

Hi all,

 

I've submitted the zipfiles to virustotal.com after I removed the guilty part "qps.exe"

It's been scanned by 60 virus scanners and only one of them complains. It's cyclance which I've never heard off.

I've uploaded the new zipfiles on my website and you can download it there, I just added the a to the file.

No one ever mentioned these problems before so I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Hope the new files are doing better.

Well I've just gone to test both 32 and 64 bit versions again - Nope nothing Windows 10 64bit still seems to think qps.exe is Malware you might want to try and get to the bottom of that...

The new zipfile doesn't contain a qps.exe anymore so if it still complains remove the file from your PC.

Are you using the right zipfile like qmod_64bit_17.7a.zip?

I don't think you're quite grasping this: The software isn't working on either 32 bit or 64 bit machines.

 

This is the error I get on the 32bit Windows 7 machine

You've missed something somewhere when you've packed the .exe file that's what i think anyhow. Its a pity because I'd really like to see what this software is capable of.

 

Don't shoot the messenger but its not just me having trouble getting it to install/work and that's on different peoples computers.

Hello again. No more virus warnings for either download. That's a start. :thumbup:

 

However, when I run the qmod.exe, I do still get a warning every time from Windows Defender:

 

"Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

[TABLE]

[TR]

[TD]App: [/TD]

[TD=class: wrappingContent] qmod.exe [/TD]

[/TR]

[TR]

[TD]Publisher: [/TD]

[TD=class: wrappingContent]Unknown publisher"[/TD]

[/TR]

[/TABLE]

 

So, you may still want to check that link I posted for Windows. Once you get them straight, it should clear up that annoying issue at some point.

 

I took a chance and ran it (More info/Run anyway). The program starts and I see an initial window from Qmod. Just a couple seconds later, it crashes.

There is a qmod-log-2017-August-17.txt file created that has the following text:

 

"2017/08/17 18:13:23 [invalid number of channels]"

 

Info about my PC:

 

Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Core 2 Quad @2.4 GHz

3 GB RAM

@PapaBearPW,

 

Ok, that's a start, it's still not clear why others have a SideBySide problem but my guess is it's a missing system dll. I've got 3 windows PC: 2x 64bit Win10 and 1x 32bit Win7 to compile the 32bit version and there are no extra dlls or the like installed, just those 4 files (previously 5).

 

About the invalid number of channels, unfortunately there's no more info available. Not your fault but the system doesn't give more. Could it be that you've got a some sort of multi channel audio card it's referring to?

When you start Qmod for the first time it's using the default audio card.

@RDJUser,

 

I compile a new 32bit version. The previous one was compiled with the wrong manifest file. amd64 instead of x86, so please check out the new file.

OK. So, I went in and double-checked my default device settings and noticed Windows had a USB device set as default recording device/microphone. Funny since I don't HAVE a USB mic. But I remembered that Windows keeps setting that for some reason lol. Changed it to the correct mic and VOILA, Qmod is up and running.

 

I'll give it a spin and let you know how it's working.

I'm giving up on this POS until I'm made aware of a stable release I can get the program started but then I just get (Not responding) when I go to click on config.

Unfortunately, I have the same problem as RDJ. When trying to change things in the Config section, the entire program stops responding.

When I close the program (because it stopped responding), it doesn't actually close, but stays open in the background and I have to kill it from the Task Manager.

I hear nothing but noise the entire time it is running. Like a mixture of static, muffled sound from my mic, and feedback loops.

@RDJUser and PapaBearPW,

Sorry to here that you ran into problems.

Thanks for the effort and time anyway.

If I may ask, what processor runs on your PC?

I'm testing on an Intel NUC with a i5-5250, 8GB ram and a Steinberg UR22 mkII USB audio card at a samplerate of 192000.

Running Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz 64bit

3 GB RAM

Sound card is just a Realtek HD on-board sound card. It was configured at 16 Bits, 48000 Hz. I changed it to 24 Bits, 192000 Hz and now Qmod is working much better. Not freezing up and very little noise (some noise is expected with this crap mic I have in my headset).

 

So, I'm going to play around with it some more and I'll let you know how that goes.
