in osx (imac core duo, snowleopard 10.6.6) and windows (old laptop as described earlier).
playing is fine with the right buffersettings, rendering too. on the imac i can go down to 64 samples internal buffersize of nebulaman
only thing in osx: my alesis audiointerface is shown, but without the different outputs. it plays fine through it.
osx NebulaMan will not show outputs of soundcard. You have to define aggregate devices for desired outputs (Audio Midi setup - Sound card settings). These aggregate device are then accessible thru NebulaMan's devices list.

Yes, 0.6 is coming very soon with a lot of nice improvements I am trying hard to make it stable enough for further testing.
Regarding complex file names ...
Files which has two dots in the name are tricky to parse correctly. For example "file.tar.gz" has in fact extension ".tar.gz". 0.6 is obeying this rule, so "vox 5.21.wav" is now "vox 5_NR.21.wav" (".21.wav" is an extension). To avoid confusion, I think that is better to have only one dot in file name.
btw. 0.6 has an option to specify output file path completely (or using prefix/suffix).
User interface: - log window separated from the main window (option to show/hide, position and size are remembered) - main menu/toolbar - program list column sorting/filtering (column can be selected) - number of found/filtered programs is displayed in the status bar - filter value and selected column are remembered
Preview: - simple slider/timebar for file navigation - current position/time information
Note: Because of some tehnical issues, Windows version does not support clicking on the slider area (current position will not be changed). The simplest way to change a position is to drag a slider handle. Sometimes this may be tricky, if the playback is running. I know - it is a pain and it will be fixed with the next release. OSX version is working as it should. Fixed: http://www.acustica-audio.com/forum/ind ... pic#p10257
Rendering: - suspend/resume rendering option - correct handling of a file extension containing more than one dot (example: vox "5.21.wav" is now "vox 5_NR.21.wav") - output file name selection using save dialog. Alternatively variables can be used - for example:
Misc. optimizations, fixes, changes: - loaded program size info (kb) is now displayed in the log window - selected audio file duration info is now displayed in the log window - audio stream is now closed/reopened only when necessary - preview thread is now restarted at end of file - audio driver/outputs can be changed when playback is running - you can even do it between rendering - Acqua sample rate switching (audio file sample rate is used)
Note: If the input file gain is too hot, there may be a clipping/distortion inside rendered output file. Clipping will not be heard when previewing, because NebulaMan has clipping prevention integrated.
