A round-up of 2017 news that could have been reported on at the time if people had only sent it this way!
With 2017 now behind us, looking back over the RISCOSitory posts for the year might leave people thinking there has been very little activity in the RISC OS world – but in fact it merely means there have been very few posts on the site over the course of the year. This, sadly, is a reflection of the amount of news submitted to RISCOSitory by developers etc, more than anything else, with their news being posted elsewhere.
So, over the last few weeks, I’ve been scouring forums and feeds that have gone unread due to a lack of spare time, and where something has jumped out at me as something I might have reported on, I’ve rounded it up in the snippets post below.
Nothing to do with World of Warcraft or Betty Boop!
Jim Lesurf has released an application called LP_WowAndFlutter, with which you can examine and measure any “wow and flutter” produced by an LP replay system which, with vinyl apparently coming back into fashion, might be useful when those old turntables are pulled back into service.
It’s catch-up time again after another busy period here at the RISCOSitory bunker, folks – so here’s another batch of news nuggets that have been waiting in the wings:
You heard it here
With a ridiculously busy period now over (mostly – and until/unless things get silly again), it’s time to round up what’s happened in the intervening period in the world of RISC OS.
I bet you thought I hadn’t noticed? Well I hadn’t, until now.
Jim Lesurf announced updates to some of his USB audio applications recently – which somehow slipped by RISCOSitory unnoticed until today.
The first of these, announced on 29th May, was an update to USBPlayer, an application that allows suitable wave (.WAV, &FB1) files to be played via USB Audio devices that follow the USB Audio standards.

I’ve now put up version 0.60i of ClassicRip.
This version fixes some bugs present in the earlier versions. Pervious versions didn’t work on an Iyonix. This version should work okay. Note that this new release adds an new control setting, so please (re-)read the !Help file before use.

I’ve now made a simple Audio CD ripper available, called ClassicRip. This can be downloaded from the Audiomisc website.
ClassicRip has two specific features:
- It allows the user to rip chosen sets of successive tracks to a single (wave) file. When this is done it also generates a text file listing the time offsets of each track’s start in the file. This is useful for musical works like classical music symphonies, etc.

A new program called USBScope has now been added to the set of USB Audio applications available from my main software page.
USBScope acts as a simple dual beam oscilloscope and FFT spectrum analyser
