QIRX SDR (V2+)AAC Audio output for the DAB+ Decoder of the
- Independent 64-bit Windows exe, although intended to cooperate with QIRX.
- Written in C# (.NET framework 4.5.2, from V2 in .net5 ), cooperating with libfaad via P/Invoke.
- Receives raw AAC frames (with ASC headers) and/or commands from QIRX and creates PCM16 samples for PortAudio, as well as status responses returned via UDP.
- Uses the UDP ports: 8766, 8767, 8768, 8769.
- Uses the libfaad2 library as AAC decoder.
- To work together with QIRX, all binaries must be contained in the qirx_audio subdirectory of the QIRX runtime. When using the QIRX installer for Windows, this is already prepared.
V2.0 (November 2021)
- net5 Version
- Change from ADTS to ASC headers.
- Now features PortAudio as its audio engine.
- With the #define LINUX, it works also on Linux (tested on Debian 11.1). Identical codebase.
V2.1 (November 2021)
- Program structure reorganized, due to problems in Linux on slower machines.
Linux Build for Debian 11 in VS2019 on Windows
- In VisualStudio, search for //#define LINUX and un-comment it.
- Do a "Rebuild All",
- On a Windows Command Line, run the script "build_qirxAudioLinux.bat" (without the quotation marks),
- This will produce the executable file qirx_audio (sic, without extension)
- In Debian, copy it to your directory of choice.
- Make sure that in the Linux search path for shared libraries the following libraries are present:
- Run ./qirx_audio
Please note that the installation of net5 on Debian is NOT necessary, as the qirx_audio is self-contained (the reason for its size).
