What people has said about AHI version 4

AHI is the first retargetable system that support almost all cards, as well as the native hardware. Now programmers and users no longer need to worry about anything, except the music and sounds.
- Roger Hågensen / Msi Software

The first time I heard about AHI was from the news group. Then I downloaded the user and developer package from Martin's homepage and played with it at home. I was very impressed. The first thing which come into my mind was: "This would be the new audio standard" and look how it's going now :). I started immediately to make a NotePlayer to APlayer with AHI and it took me only a few days before the first version was finished.
If I have some problems or bug reports, I contacted Martin and he is very helpful. Thanks for all your help :)

- Thomas Neumann / The APlayer-Team

AHI is the greatest thing since sliced toast, finally our DraCo is no longer a mute! When people realise what AHI is about it will be as big as CybergraphX. It's time we got rid of the 8-bit audio limit! Great work Martin!
- Johan Otterström / Örebro Videoreklam (DraCo reseller)

AHI is the easiest way for programmers to implement support for various audio cards. No more messing up with hard-to-figure-out outdated or non existing programming documentations. Just use AHI for it and relax.. Best general purpose Sound API for Amiga ever!
- Pauli Porkka / Digital Audio Systems Designs (author of D.A.S. Module Player)

Finally there's a powerful retargetable audio standard for Amiga!
- Thomas Wenzel, A.C.T. (designers of the Prelude soundcard)

I need your help!

There are several things that I have in mind for AHI, but I will probably not have enough time to implement them in the near future. Perhaps you can help?
