With all my new found Amiga Storage, I thought I would move my MP3 library to my A4000 so I could jam out while working. In the past, I used my A3000 with a Warp Engine and a Sunrise AD516 card for MP3 playback, and it was OK. I moved all that hardware to my A4000 and it is still just OK.
My rig has a Warp Engine 68040 running at 40 MHz, 48 MB RAM and some zippidy fast SCSI drives. I have been using AMPlifier that comes with OS 3.9. It supports AHI audio, so it can pump the tunes through my soundcard, but only at 1/4 sampling. The whole thing sounds muddy and muffled. I can set it to 1/2 sampling and improve the audio, but then the Amiga grinds to a crawl. Changing it to 1/1 sampling sounds great, but the audio skips and the Amiga is useless - like it takes 8 seconds to register mouse movement.
I tried AMIGAAMP from http://www.amigaamp.de , and it is brilliant software that is still supported and updated, but it apparently needs an '060 CPU to be useful. It is just a stuttery mess on my system.
Soooo... Does anyone have any other software that works and sounds good on an 040 Amiga? Recommendations? Or should I just use the PS3 that is three feet from my Amiga and have perfect playback with no issues, and stop kicking a dead horse?
Nah... I have a bunch of things that play MP3's just fine. I just want to get my Amiga to do it!
