RockBEAT is a simple step sequencer for AmigaOS4. It is a tool for
musicians that allows you to create drumming tracks. It can create multiple
tracks, each one being 4x 4/4 measures with 16th notes. You can save individual
tracks as wav files, or the whole thing as one big song. You can drop in your
own 16bit stereo 44100Hz PCM WAV samples in the drumsamples/ folder if you

Import your drums into Audio Evolution or HD-REC and record some vocals
and guitar to go with it, or just jam along. Great for the bedroom guitarist.

Unfortunately the sound quality is low, and can have performance issues while
playing back more than 160bpm on the Sam440ep-667 (due to unoptimised code). But
still, its a nice free app to play with.


Changes 3.1
- Fixed a crash bug after playing back the first bar

Changes 3.0
- Added a function to display how much time was taken to Save projects
as WAV files. This could be useful in benchmarking OS4 hardware.

- Added volume sliders and mute buttons for the tracks. These values are
saved when you Save your projects too.

- Changed the graphics to be super skinny, so that the beat buttons fits
on a 1024x768 screen. Scrolling still causes audio to skip, so 800x600
users will still suffer. Sorry!

- Changed my audio frames to use short's instead of unsigned long's. This
should theoretically make my audio sound a lot better, but I can't tell if
its made any difference!

- Did some bugfixing with my arrays. Data was being setup and written
outside where it should have been, and probably trashing memory.

Changes 2.1
- Made adjustments to calculations for WAV file saving, so hopefully
the larger WAV's will load better in HDREC, etc.

- Added a "Copy tracks" function. Copy some or all instrument tracks
to a new/different bar. Just perfect when you want to keep the same
hihat throughout your song, and you dont want to keep clicking it back
up again and again!

- Made a number of improvements for adding new bars.

- RockBEAT is now freeware! E-mail me if you want a free personalised
keyfile with your name in it.

Changes 2.0.1
- RockBEAT wasnt opening the beats for some bars of the last
opened drum sample (it was saving them ok, but not reopening)

- The tracks display got slightly messed up after finishing
playback of a song with repeat switched off.
