I installed SoftSqueeze for the first time today, and I must say I'm very
impressed.
The Sync is spot on, and a real pleasure to go from computer to den (with
stereo/SliMP3) in sync...

But I do have one warning message on start-up that I get....

G:\Program Files\SlimServer\SoftSqueeze>"G:\Program
Files\Java\jre1.5.0\bin\java.exe" -jar softsqueeze.jar
0 [SlimTCP] WARN com.slim.softsqueeze.Player - mas dsp unrecognised
address: 348
16 [SlimTCP] WARN com.slim.softsqueeze.Player - mas dsp unrecognised
address: 349

Hi,

Softsqueeze pre-0.6 is now available on Sourceforge
(http://softsqueeze.sf.net). This includes a new skin (thanks again to
Graham), and now supports synchronization :)

To get synchronization working, you'll need:
- SlimServer 5.2
- Java 1.5 beta 2 (available for Windows, Linux and Solaris)
- Check the Softsqueeze configuration, the audio mixer must be set to the
Primary Sound Driver.

So far I've only been able to test this on WinXP with mp3 and flac files. It
would be interesting to know which other platforms work?

Audio playback in Java 1.4 seems to have an additional latency that prevents
perfect synchronization. I need to look into this some more, but suspect
that I won't be able to fix it. I could add a configuration option to drop
the first few samples of each track, so that the players will then
synchronize. Would this be useful?

Enjoy!
Richard

Hi,

I am glad to hear that sync is working with Slimp3 players. Don't worry
about the warnings, they are caused by the slimserver trying to set the bass
and treble controls. Softsqueeze does not support them yet.

Regards,
Richard
