NOTE: This is not the current site!
This is an archived site, kept for reference and, er, historical
interest. The current site is here.
Even if this page is mainly for developers who are
using the AHI audio system in their own products,
a short introduction of AHI may be appropriate.
AHI is for sound cards what CyberGraphX is for graphic
cards. A common way of talking to sound cards, and even the internal
audio chip (Paula), makes it
possible for programmers to make their music and audio programs work with all
supported sound cards - without even owning one. Furthermore, special features
of more advanced sound cards (like DSP and effect chips) will automatically be
used by AHI applications.
The system is designed to be easy to use, fast,
efficient and future safe.
AHI User's Guide is available on-line,
if you're interested.

Planned support or in works
Just telling me that AHI crashes won't help. I need to know
what you do to make it crash, if it is repeatable or random, what system you
use, what patches you haev running, if it still crashes after a clean boot etc.
I will also need Segtracker, Enforcer and Mungwall log files. If you don't
have these tools, you can download them right
here. Instructions are inside
the archive. You'll need a CPU with a working MMU to use it.
