PlayerPro 5.10 is coming along very nicely,
and in the near future we will be restoring audio/midi functionality with CoreAudio and CoreMidi.

Moreover, a rewrite of the realtime audio filtering with the Steinberg VST SDK and Apple's CoreAudio AudioUnit technology is making progress.

Restoring Steinberg ASIO output is also possible, and will be worked on as soon as possible.

My rating in previous message is wrong. It does not seem
to work, or I don't know how to use these stars.

And, of course, it plays mp3. This app seems to be better
than advertised.

The SourceForge site has an intel-native port, but it needs beta testers! Any and all comments would be appreciated.

It is sad that such a great product has a lack of proper development. This product hasn't seen a good version since the original developer ceased on it. Maybe it would be wise for the current maintainer to pass on the project. To a group that would actively develop for it.

Try looking at the SourceForge page again. I have put a lot of effort to port it over to Intel and Mach-o.

Does anyone know of a program that plays PlayerPro's MAD format?

I've revamped a few things and uploaded the PlayerPro 5.10 alpha codebase for the transition from CodeWarrior

When will we see an actual application release of playerpro 5.10? 5.9.8 although runs well on classic, is getting less and less stable on tiger and on leopard with intel. I can't stand to play mods without the pattern view or box editor! Will it still be free or will it become shareware again?

what claims do you mean?

FYI:
-my maintainership is approved by Antoine Rossett (the original author of PlayerPRO)
- I dedicating all my free time to tackle a huge backlog of reported and unreported bugfixes.

By July 10th
-I expect to release 5.9.8.1 (which is actually a major revision over 5.9.8)
-initial CVS import of refactored code
- file release of first 'clean' CVS tarball

I have reopened the good ol' PlayerPROLounge. It won't be updated anymore, but everything on it is available for those seeking information about PlayerPRO.

http://amonre.org/pplounge/playerprolounge/

Some files are still there, some files arent. The PlayerPRO downloads are broken, though. For details, see

http://amonre.org/pplounge/#updates

Hope this is useful to you all. :)

OS X 10.4.4 seems to break compatibility with PlayerPro. I get an error regarding the sound driver when booting up the program. Does this happen for anyone else?

It's been working now… perhaps I had a corrupt preferences file or something. Thank you for your attentiveness!
