SoDiRa

I'm creating this thread, because I don't speak German. Yes, since my ancestry is Germanic Swiss, I should probably learn German .... someday. ;

Anyway, has SoDiRa's handbook ever been translated into English?

Hi
I'm a great fan of this software but I'm afraid it don't seems to be actively
supported any more.
In fact although I registered the 0.099 version I mainly use the 0.092 one
because of the lack of dynamic resolution of the spectrum display.
It is most useful with sound card based hardware.
Lots of useless buttons on the main window.
Lots of useful ones hidden on auxiliary ones.
are my main regrets.

Bonjour Laurent,

SODIRA fonctionne très bien, mais ne permet pas d'afficher des images MOT, de ce fait pour moi peut intéressant.

I am using 0.085 version - for the last few days to test some DRM transmissions
It is still very useful for the extra modes - AMstereo
But of limited use on DRM. I usually have to flip input spectrum which is a difficult to find option - but then it wont decode in flip spectrum mode anyway

There is a new version :

Make sure to download the specification PDF file.
There seems to be a lot of changes.

I am having a problem with the new version in DRM mode.
It seems as if it tries to play at 48KHz an audio that is 24KHz so I get blocks of
too fast audio spaced by silences.
Using TDF 3965 KHz transmission,Wxp ,HDMI audio out and an SDRplay receiver.
The same set up is OK with other versions of Sodira.
I tried to decode an old recording of Vatican radio that is at 48KHz and it is OK.

Yeah, Preview 24 has some problems which the developer needs to address, but I like the progress. I spent several hours re-familiarizing myself with SoDiRa and it's capable with analog broadcasts. I've never had much luck with DRM, though, as the digital signals to the USA are way too weak if present at all. I'll be monitoring SoDiRa's progress. I certainly wish someone would reverse engineer the xHE-AAC codec and include it in SoDiRa.
