Paula sound, so where does that 14bit audio come from?

So where does that 14bit stereo sound come from? You might have wondered, well after reading the hardware reference manual, it explains that 4 audio channels can be combined in to two.
In this mode, one of channels controls the volume (a value from 0 to 63) 6bits, and wave from is (127 to -127) 8bit, so if you add that up 6+8 = 14bit.

:dancing banana: (sort of)

After more than four months of chasing my own tail on this problem, I had managed to fix up the JIT compiling to let the Kickstart boot using compiled code(See disclaimer below...)

*Phew*, there were times when I thought I am not going to write this down ever in the blog. I was this >> << close to give it up on some days. Since the world hasn't ended in 2012, I realized I have to go on, there is no escape.

Season’s Greetings

I'm writing this blog to the sound of the annual Christmas pop song medley playing on the radio and with shops and cafes adorned with images of robins, Santa Claus, reindeer and snow.

2012 on the X1000 - A Look Back

Given that it is almost the end of the year, I thought it would be good to look back over the year 2012 and significant releases for AmigaOne X1000 and it operating system AmigaOS4 during that time.

I do know (and acknowledge) that there has been plenty of activity around MorphOS, AROS and Classic AmigaOS3.x platforms too in 2012 (I run all three of these platforms as well), but these are not the focus of this AmigaOne X1000 blog as it runs AmigaOS4. It would be interesting to compare MorphOS 3.1 and AmigaOS 4.1.6 performance on the same X1000 hardware, but that's another story!
