BreakawayOne / Re: Help Wanted
« Last post by Wayne on March 30, 2017, 02:51:50 AM »
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions Jesse and I hope you are well.

So in regards to the built in HD streaming codec would you say it is better than the edcast being used to BBP (in terms of clarity and the handling of audio etc)?

If Plutonium was reworked for the new BreakawayOne with 'less' features is there anything I can tweak to get a similar sound as the settings I used in the old BBP is above.

The best way to describe my main issue if I'm completely honest is that BBP had a certain characteristic, a certain sound that no matter what audio you threw at it, old or new it would come out sounding polished with the same 'sound' for example you could play a vinyl and it would have the same tone as a modern chart song.

With the new Plutonium I'm finding it doesn't 'alter' the character of the music as the old preset?

It may just be me that I've been listening too long looking for faults maybe? I'm not sure and could do with a second opinion or help shaping the sound maybe?

Any further input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

After some more late night testing I found out that "LEIFF 412" gives a pretty consistent loudness level with less audible level adjustments due to power control.

I can really recommend the Omnia.9 manual for anyone else reading this and using BreakawayOne. Many of BAO functions is present there and have good explanations for what the do. It's available at The Telos Alliance web page.

Thank you for taking time and giving me some more insight in the complexity of BS.412.
I’m in a small market with 4 public service stations (3 kW), 2 commercial stations (3 kW) and 2 community stations (300 W). I'm managing one of the stations broadcasting with a community license.

I can only compare our sound to the public service stations since the others are still at 7-8 dBr.

I used a pretty standard “Plutonium” preset (with some Bass-EFX, Clunk and Slam) on BPP and we were really happy with it. I can’t get the same punch and clarity using the same preset on BreakawayOne with 412 enabled. At the moment I’m trying the “Reference Hot 412”, it’s a little bit to light processed, but it has a similar bass punch and clarity as our public service stations. And with this preset I’m able to at least compete with public service in loudness, but with the power limiting problem as I mentioned before. And if I turn down the peak/power limiter drive our loudness is lower than public service  :'(

- Can you stream from the FM module rather than the HD module like in the old BBP?
Not within the software. Now that HD/Streaming cores are their own unique thing, it wouldn't be good to leave temptations for users to do things that compromise the fidelity of their sound.

- In BBP I used the 50us Pre-Emphasis to stream with a 30hz LPF and 16000Khz Bandwidth HPF. I've seen LPF and HPF in the 'Monitor' section but nothing in the HD Module?
The majority of the processing isn't effected by sub-bass or very high treble. Only the limiters & clippers are. If you are using lossy codecs, they will handle LPF automatically for you, and you shouldn't be getting any audibly negative effects from sub-bass... unless something is drastically wrong with your source like a loud 5 Hz hum. :P

As I'm struggling to get that clarity and shape of Plutonium of the old BBP.
You wont' be able to achieve exactly the same sound since Plutonium was reworked once for the Omnia.9 series (new and most think an improved sound), and then reworked again into a 5-band preset, with less features, for BreakawayOne.

Depending upon the type of Wifi Radios you use, the most reliable IP transfer is achieved by getting the jitter as low as possible over the link. This will vary depending upon the make and model of your wifi units.

Code: [Select]
< this text will scroll << this text will scroll faster /2s:2seconds /8s:8seconds /2s:call now /1s:readthis <<< this text scrolls even faster <<        this text will scroll into and out of the PS        /2s:KIIS-FM
Or as Leif documented it...

Have fun :)

I'll add to the few who've requested a bit more filling out of the RDS capability of BAO. For my needs, I'd be totally content if there was some capacity to scroll words longer than 8 characters within the PS window. Under the present setup, everything after 8 characters seems to be ignored. Love me some Aerosmit!  ;)

Not every radio with RDS can handle Radio Text and some that do handle Radio Text cannot update that field dynamically as the song changes. Having the ability to add some flexibility to the PS function would be very useful.

Outside of this bit, I've been extremely pleased with BAO. Stacked Boxes for the win!

BreakawayOne / Livewire over Wifi
« Last post by Diekgait on March 24, 2017, 10:56:33 PM »
I've been doing some testing with livewire over wifi and I must say that it works better than I had expected. I've tested it on 5ghz with a multicast rate of 12 mbit and I have prioritized the traffic. Frame loss on wifi is inevitable however so I was wondering does the livewire standard allow for error correction?
Use case? Having synchronized streaming audio in the garden and the living room :D
BreakawayOne / Re: BAONE Livewire Node Configuration
« Last post by Diekgait on March 24, 2017, 10:45:59 PM »
Here are some things you can check:

1. Check if the right NIC is being used.(If you have multiple network adapters)
Go to Common > Network Information and check the mac address to see if BA has selected the right nic. If not disable the selected NIC until it selects the right one. I haven't found a way to configure the nic it should use.
2. Check your network setup.
Livewire uses multicast, is your network configured to use multicast? If both devices are in the same broadcast domain(they have the same or no default gateway) network it's pretty straight forward and should just work. If however the devices are in different networks(they have a different default gateway) then you have make sure the network is setup for multicast routing.
3. Setup the source(studio):
Go to HD Processor(or watever the core is you use) > Misc > Livewire > Main Output
Choose a channel number, is used 1. And click enable
4. Setup the receiver(transmit site)
Go to Passthorugh(or watever the core is you use) > Misc > Livewire > Input
Choose the same channel you set at the source and it should start streaming.
