I'm not sure if this is possible as I'm not really sure quite how all the maths behind this works... but if it is that would be a great feature IMO.
Hi Mike,

I'll have a look at it after I finish enhancing the Tapped Horn Wizard tool.

Please note that this does not necessarily mean that I will go ahead and include a voltage plot :-).

Kind regards,

David

Does Hornresp require special DLL files to run?

I arm using a stripped down version of XP over VMWare (OSX) and a lot of stuffs purposely are not installed. I can't get Hornresp to run. Does Hornresp uses Visual Basic or other Microsoft specific stuffs?

Hi agent.5,

Hornresp is a Visual Basic 3 application. I have no idea what files it requires from the Operating System. I do know that it works well with the normal version of XP, though.

No external DLL files are called specifically from the source code.

I assume that you have installed the Vbrun300.dll file as instructed in the Readme.txt file provided as part of the download package?

Kind regards,

David

Hi aznboi3644,

The only Hornresp tutorial I am aware of is located at http://www.diyaudio.com/wiki/index.p...=Hornresp+Help

It's a bit dated now, and some of the input parameter names have changed, but it still may be of some use.

I was not involved in setting up the web page.

Incidentally, it's real easy to get started in Hornresp - just click the 'Calculate' button to see how the program operates with the default record, or click the 'Add' button if you wish to create and edit your own new record :-).

Kind regards,

David

Yes.

The program crashes everytime, if I mouse click hit the menu bar (FILE, Tools, WINDOW, etc). It is possible that VMWare caused the problem. I will just run the software with a regular PC.

I solved my own problem by installing a separate Windows 98 SE virtual machine, and hornsrep is running. So, it is not a VMWare problem, just my stripped down version of XP eliminated some required stuffs for hornsrep to run.

What I would like to see is a concise tutorial on tapped horns in hornresp. I suspect that a lot of the information is in the TH thread but studying that will have to wait until I have more time.

Hi David,

No problem. I always look forward to new versions, and even without the voltage plot I can roughly set the limiters anyway, so I was only suggesting it as something extra anyway.

Cheers
Will
