Default Speaker Workshop - Compile new executable for Win7 and Mac.

You probably know that Speaker Workshop has been open source for a while. Speaker Workshop | Free Audio & Video software downloads at SourceForge.net .
There hasn't been much interest in modifying the source code, probably because there isn't much to fix or change. It works good.
But what I'd atleast like to see happen is the source be compiled into a more modern (Win7, Multi core) platform. And for a Mac platform as well.

Anyone here who knows and is willing to just recompile the source into an executable for a current platform and put it out there for download ?

I wish I had a C++ compiler and the time to sit and work at it, there are a few things I would improve, although it works pretty well as-is once you know its little quirks.

Hi Ron,
Though I no longer use SW, I wrote the Unofficial Manual some years ago. At that time, I, nor anyone else I knew, could clearly get the Distortion measurements to work with clear, repeatable results. Out of curiosity, has anyone figured it out?

I believe that PinkMouse has the download at his site and if you go to Download, you can download it, last I knew. Claudio also has an excellent tutorial at his site: Claudio Negro's home page, how to project and test a loudspeaker using Speaker Workshop. The Manual was very large and would have to go through multiple emails. I hope that you find it fun and educational.

Jay

I tried to compile the code with VC++ 6 under windows and it didn't work. I didn't much try much.
I had the idea to make a port into WxWindows and make it really multiplatform. There are some improvements to do.
Perhaps if I have time and courage I will try again.

Note Speakerworkshop works in Unix platform with wine.

I have VC++5 and I looked at the contents of the sourceforge source code, and if I recall correctly it somehow seemed like there were some files missing?

Yes Ron E. I have had the same feeling but didn't investigate a lot.
I tried a brute force compilation and there were something wrong at the link stage but I don't remember what
I looked the file Audtest.vcproj. It seems to be a visual C++ 7.10 file.
Perhaps the building will work better with a .net compiler ?
I will try.
