BreakawayOne / Help Wanted
« Last post by Wayne on February 24, 2017, 05:07:40 PM »

I'm currently playing about with Breakaway One and deciding whether to go ahead with the upgrade from BBP; however, I have a few queries first in regards to the new software.

- Can you stream from the FM module rather than the HD module like in the old BBP?
- 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?

In regards to the last point above I know you do not need this and should not really use them for streaming, however it was a preference of mine as I preferred 'that FM' sound online and the bandwidth filter helped filter out any unwanted artifects on the 'top end'. The LPF helped the bass in all music sound familiar and similar rather than bass sounding slightly different in different styles and types of music, again, this is a preference of mine as it was the style I liked.

In regards to the Pre-Emphasis I really liked the 'Sparkle Top End Sound' it would give (of course using De-Emphasis) as it would add clarity and make the top end sound similar in all types of music. Again on air sound preference.

Can any of this be achieved using BBO for streaming. As I'm struggling to get that clarity and shape of Plutonium of the old BBP.

Many thanks for your help.

I have attached what I have playing around with so far.

Each preset can have its own stereo enhancer settings now. Make sure to check out the "Enhance" page's "Stereo Enhancer" checkbox, and "Stereo Amount" settings.

Hello, I'm having an issue, not able to get a wide stereo image. The aired sound is sounding dry with no stereo dynamic. The old breakaway had. Is it a problem or a normal feature of the breakaway one?

True, but "less is more" seems to be apt here. It sounds like you made the same mistake I did at first - defining speaker output as well as "card" output. This will create two (almost) parallel circuits, so you will hear a slight over-dub.

I'm limited in the number of screenshots I can fit on each post, so I'll create a couple of separate replies. The following string of images are of my setup with an M-Audio Delta 192 audio card, which has native ASIO.

Wow! A great processor now with so many different options and settings that it's almost impossible to set up!

So as a test I just wanted to set it up to process the sound on my PC... like the old audio enhancer used to do.

The best i got it was the sound was doubled up and because there are a million settings I'm not sure which one is set wrong.

That'll work. It also works on an Atom Z3735G, which has 4 cores and a total of only 910 Passmarks.
BreakawayOne / CPU Passmark score - single or multi core?

Hi there,

I'm thinking about putting together a low power server class machine to run BAOne.

The Intel Atom C2550 CPU (quad core) has a passmark score of 2329, but per core it is only 596. According to the BA One documentation, anything over 800 should be OK for full FM. Should I be looking for 800 minimum per core, or can I safely work with the combined number?

BreakawayOne would work for what you need to do. It has a linear-phase HD audio core type that works great with lossy coded/streaming audio (compensating for the little bit of inherent latency is easy with OBS/OBS Studio), and you can add on a low latency path for hearing yourself in realtime (with an ASIO capable audio interface) that has a speaker controller for frequency response calibration.

I recommend trying it out before you buy, to make sure it's going to do everything you need well on your particular system/s & setup, and to see what all features you'll need to use.

In general you'll get much cleaner audio (1:1 bit accurate) by running BreakawayOne through a virtual soundcard (BreakawayOne comes with Breakaway Pipeline), and also with no phase distortion that's inherent in ~real-time audio processing which can wreak havoc with lossy audio codecs... in comparison with Breakaway Audio Enhancer which limits you to using an actual soundcard output and using the soundcard's "What You Hear" method for the stream's audio.

It also has more presets, newer presets and improved audio core, and has more adjustability to get the sound qualities you want.

Check it out :) let us know if you need help setting it up, and if you don't have an ASIO audio interface... what your needs are for number of inputs and outputs so we can recommend something good & cheap.
