settings / Re: Where do I find the settings?
« on: May 15, 2018, 11:38:19 am »
From Qmod 18.2 and upwards the settings folder has moved to the <Qmod install folder>/Settings.

Release Info / Qmod 18.3 released
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:58:31 am »
Version 18.2.2 had some serious bugs so here's 18.3.

Release notes
===== 18.3 ====
- Fixed: The update check didn't check for point releases.
- Fixed: When you changed the buffer size Qmod would freeze.
- Changed: Rewrite of the device selection to have a better selection of the devices. It's now possible to run two or more Qmod instances at the same time Every instance will need it's own sound card. A bug in the device selection prevented this.
- Added: A name for your Qmod process in the main window. On the preset panel you can set the name.
- Added: The configuration window saves its position when closing.

Release Info / Qmod 18.2.2 released please update asap

Release Info / Qmod 18.2 released
« on: April 30, 2018, 01:34:04 pm »
===== 18.2 ====

- Changed: Switched to Go 1.10.1
- Changed: Replaced the clipper by a buffered clipper. The old one did its job in real time, the new one uses a buffer between 5 and 40ms to work with.
                   It gives a cleaner sound because it produces less distortion and harmonics.
- Changed: The clipper drive value is now in dB. You problably need to check your clipper setting when in use.
- Added:   A separate fm clipper control on the fm panel.
- Removed: The stereowidth limiter in the fm section. The bandwith can be better controlled by the new composite limiter.
- Changed: Some small values in de leveler.
- Changed: Stereo+ divided into two parts for detection.
- Changed: Moved the settings folder from APPDATA to the local Qmod folder and renamed it to Settings. This way it opens the possibility to run multiple instances of
                   Qmod together, each in its own folder with its own settings. You'll need an separate audio card for every instance however.
- Fixed: A few small bugs in the processing routine.
- Fixed: A few bugs in the GUI
- Fixed: A bug in the audio card timing guard which caused a repeating restart of the audio card at samplerate a setting of 96000 and 192000.

Sorry for being a bit late.

I see in your previous message that your CPU is a Celeron j1800. If that's still the case with your dedicated PC, it could be that you have to litle processing power available.
I haven't tested it with a Celeron but when you discribe Gui crashes I'm thinking that could be the cause. I've never any seen Gui crashes in all my tests except when I tried it on a to slow D2500 mobile. The program needs a reasonable fast CPU. i5 or i7 or something comparable.
The program is written in Go and is somewhat slower in executing than a program written in C or C++.

Release Info / Qmod 18.1 released
« on: February 23, 2018, 01:42:14 pm »
Release notes:
- Fixed: When for whatever reason the selected audio card was not found or had incorrect values, Qmod would crash in the audio card intialization process. It's fixed now.
- Changed: Selection process of the audio card. It's name based now. Previously it was index based but it turned out that's not always reliable. When you're not using the  default audio card you'll need to reselect your card.

- Changed: Modified the release gate. Now it resets the counter when another gate event occurs before the gate is closed and the release returns to normal.
- Changed: Some values in the presets.
- Changed: Some minor changes in de expander.

Hi Sevenmizer61,

I did some searching in the source code and the point at wich the error occurs is where some info is being asked of the sound card, only it finds a nil pointer. It seems that the sound card isn't initialized. It's a bug that makes Qmod crash when the sound card is not available.
Mostly it happens with a wrong sound card selection or setting.
Perhaps you can select the default sound card as your selection in Qmod and have Windows use your sound card as default. That should work.
Also you could check for the error log file, it's in C:\Users\YourUserName\QmodErrors. Maybe you'll find some more info.

The bug will be fixed in version 18.1 but your problem isn't solved by it.
Hope this helps.


Hi Tisuputih,

I took some time to listen to the stream you mentioned( It has a very open sound as far as I can tell.
But I understand you want some more power. The easiest way to do that is to increase the density a bit. As an example, if your density setting is 2 or 3 increase it to 5 or 6, also you can increase the end limiter drive from say 1 or 2 to 3 or 4. The release time should be set to 150-200ms. The band limiters should also have a release of 150/200ms.
I don't know your base preset but in Qmod version 17.9 I've introduced the PowerBottom preset. You could take that as a start.
I hope this helps.

I think practically every audio processor is written in C/C++. Qmod is written in Go. Go asks a bit more CPU power than C/C++.
I don't like C/C++ and choose Go when I started this project a few years back, and with CPUs getting more power I don't think it's a big drawback.
A pity you can't test it, I would very much like to hear your opinion on Qmod. When you get it to work please let me know.

Have a nice day,

I managed to dig up a win7sp1 installation drive and made a dual boot install on my test pc.
The test PC is a Intel NUC i5 with a i5-5250 processor and the built-in intel GPU
8 GB RAM and a SSD 128GB, audio is a Steinberg U-22 usb audio card.
I'm using the win7 32bit version
I took the latest Qmod and it runs perfectly.
It seems it's a hardware/driver related problem that I can't reproduce.

I did a quick check on the CPUs you're using and I see that they're mobile processors from '07/'08.
I did a test once and tried to run Qmod on a PC with intel D500 mobile processor and 2GB RAM. The D500 is from 2010.
It started but frooze during the start up. So from my experience I don't think it's gonna work at all even when the crash problem is solved.

Ok thanks.

I'll look into it but it's something other than a simple bug in qmod.
It could be related to video backend of the GUI. I've no knowledge of that piece of software.

What kind of video card do you use or are all computers have different setups?
Please give as much information about your PC setup as possible because when I ask around people gonna asked.

I forgot.
In the video I saw you clicked on qmod.exe to start it and the cmd window opened and closed again, to fast to see what's happening.
Please do the following:
open the cmd window by pressing winkey + r
type cmd and enter. Cmd opens a window and you can enter dos commands.
Goto the directory where qmod is unzipped by using dos commands like: cd downloads\qmod_console_x64_modified_manifest
type dir and enter to see what's in the directory, when you see qmod.exe in the listing type qmod and enter.
now the cmd window stays open and hopefully you see something about the possible error.

I'm running out of possibilities here.
I've one option left right now and that's an incorrect manifest file that is compiled into the exe. It's runs fine on my 2 test PCs that have win10 and a beta tester who also uses win10, has never complained but I have no win7 PC available. Did you tried it on a win10 machine?

Anyway I compiled another 64bit exe with a different manifest file and give you the link for it.

Looks to me that qmod isn't really starting.

Could you check the win7 event logs. Maybe there's some info.

I'm not a windows pro so I looked it up where to find it.

From the internet:
How to access and read Windows Event Viewer?
Right click on “My computer” icon on a desktop, select “Manage”. The Computer management windows will open where you will notice the event viewer folder icon.
Alse could you rename qmos_console to Qmod. I'm sure it's important but the included manifest has qmod as a name.
