I needed a Windows 64 bit development version of the audio library Audiere but couldn’t find any precompiled binaries for x64, so I’m posting them here for any future googlers.
Why did I need Audiere? Well, I had switched the Growtopia 64 bit client to use SDL2_mixer and immediately had a rash of complaints from poor audio mixing to no audio at all.
Tried various bit rates, buffer sizes, and driver settings (directsound, etc) , still had weird “drunk” timings and distortion when mixing 4+ sounds. I got it to the point of “not that bad, on my computer at least” but many players still had major problems. So back to Audiere we go!
audiere: 1.9.4 (?) forked from Chad Austin’s Audiere on github
Note: The 64 bit binaries are missing mod/xm support as I didn’t need them for my project and was too lazy to find and include the Dumb source.
If you’d like an easy way to compile your own 32/64 bit version for MSVC2005, I’ve thrown the entire thing including supporting libraries on github so you can build from source in a single MSVC 2005 solution in Audiere/vc8/audiere.sln:
