Convolution no embedding

  • OK I'm now having this problem with IR's.....

    I've set "Embed Audio Files" to ON in the preferences,

    and I've pressed: "Export Pooled Files to Binary Resources"

    I note HISE telling me this in the console when I do this step;

    So they all appear to be done correctly yet:

    I've reinstalled the program too (tho I cant see how that would help things..) so I', So now I'm a bit stuck, and this is getting urgent...

    All help appreciated.

  • You need to have Engine.loadAudioFilesIntoPool(); in on init.

  • @d-healey -- oh LOONG since had that:


    -- in dfact I think theres a compile check these days that issues a warning if you dont have this..

  • @Lindon Right well Now the problem is:

    The stand alone starts OK - and runs fine - except:

    The reverb isnt working at all,

    Still... when I select a new IR then SOME of them DONT report an error - tho they are not having any effect in the instrument, and SOME of them report "not embeded properly"

    Heres my combo box code:

    inline function onReverbMenuControl(component, value)
    	//Change the IRs..
             case 1:
                        ConvolutionReverb1.setFile("{PROJECT_FOLDER}Bottle Hall.wav");

  • @Lindon ....and NOW.....

    it seems some are loading and working correctly and some are reporting "not embeded "

  • @Lindon perhaps its something IN the Audio file that is stopping it embeding properly - whats the format requirements for IRs?

  • @Lindon swell they are all 16 bit 44.1 Khz sample rate so thats not it... any help?

  • Right, found it:

    So for those in a similar situation:

    Here's the name of one of my IR files:

    LIVE hot plate.WAV

    Here's the piece of code that loads it:

    ConvolutionReverb1.setFile("{PROJECT_FOLDER}LIVE hot plate.wav");
    • this loads and plays nicely in HISE, but will not load in a compiled app...

    Perhaps you can quickly spot where I've made a mistake...It took me all morning...

    • yes this

    LIVE hot plate.WAV

    is NOT this:

    LIVE hot plate.wav

    --- as far as the HISE application is concerned the case of the file extension is unimportant, but as far as a compiled app is concerned - it IS important.

    So leaving my file named:

    LIVE hot plate.WAV

    and changing my code to read:

    ConvolutionReverb1.setFile("{PROJECT_FOLDER}LIVE hot plate.WAV");

    Means it all works correctly.

    So my request:

    @Christoph-Hart - can we please have case sensitivity parity between HISE and the things made in HISE.....

  • Hmm, the problem is that I am just passing the file path to the OS methods and Windows doesn't care about uppercase, but macOS does (in a compiled plugin it is case sensitive on both OS because it uses the path as normal string key to a hash map). I have no idea how to validate the case sensitivity for file paths on Windows without bad hacks, so this is a classic case of "watch out during development".

  • @Christoph-Hart OK, understood, but perhaps we could have a warning?

  • but how should I do that? You pass a string to a OS call and get a file handle back. I would have to then query the filename from the handle and match it with the input, which is really hacky and adds performance overhead for 0.00001% of all cases where somebody makes a case mistake.
