UpMixGUI - Tool for Stereo > 5.1 conversion

http://users.masternap.org/gircobain/UpMixGUI.zip

UpMixGUI is largely based on KpeX's work

This is a very first beta, so if does not work as expected please don't hurt me

Suggestions and bug reports are welcome

Oh my bad
I think I fixed it:

http://users.masternap.org/gircobain/UpMixGUI011.zip

upmixCLI.exe is actually the core command line application that does all the dirty job and allows for integration with Exact Audio Copy to rip/convert audio cds to 5.1 tracks.

Great gircobain!

Very useful GUI, Thanks for adding HE-AAC & DTS.

Suggestions:
1.Slideres for reverbration...
total 3 sliders, 1 for FL & FR, second for RL & RR and third for Centre channel.

2. A option for selecting a temp folder, where all intermediate files could be dumped.

3.If possible a option for queing jobs of different kinds...eg, one ac3, second AAC, etc....

Thanks..

1. Actually I'm using the reverb settings that Eye of Horus and kempfand developed in the UpMiX thread. I have yet to figure what those values for reverb in sox mean...
2. What are the intermediate files good for?
3. Job queueing sounds interesting. I'll try and look into that.

1. if you could provide such a feature..then more and more tweaking could be done...
2. If I'm doing a big 30min file, the intermediate files generated for first will be huge..some times the space left will be full...So if there is an option for allowing temp folder, any drive could be choosed having free space...may be network drive or something... That is the only intention for temp folder request.

gircobain, very cool program.

Could you please share how you passed the parameters in to SurCode to automate the DTS File? This might be useful for me down the line....

Thanks!

Surcode CD reads the filenames for the 6 mono wav files and the destination file off the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Minnetonka Audio Software\Surcode CD Pro DTS\OPTIONS, keys WAVEFILE1 thru WAVEFILE7
Surcode DVD reads its set of keys off HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Minnetonka Audio Software\Surcode DTS\OPTIONS.

I'm not so sure what you're uncertain about but this is what I do, in case you can read Delphi code:
Code:
  {writes registry keys}
    try
      Reg:= TRegistry.Create;
      Reg.RootKey:= HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
      if Reg.OpenKey('\Software\Minnetonka Audio Software\Surcode CD Pro DTS\OPTIONS', False) then
      begin
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE1', OutputFolder + 'temp\FL.wav');
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE2', OutputFolder + 'temp\FR.wav');
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE3', OutputFolder + 'temp\SL.wav');
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE4', OutputFolder + 'temp\SR.wav');
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE5', OutputFolder + 'temp\CC.wav');
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE6', OutputFolder + 'temp\LFE.wav');
        Reg.WriteString('WAVEFILE7', OutputFile);
        Reg.CloseKey;
        ...
      end;
    finally
      Reg.Free;
    end;
    ...
  {fires up Surcode CD}
    with StartupInfo do
    begin
      cb := SizeOf(StartupInfo);
      dwFlags := STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW;
      wShowWindow := SW_SHOWNORMAL;
    end;
    if NOT CreateProcess(nil, PChar(surcodedts), nil, nil, False, CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE or NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, nil, PChar(ExtractFilePath(surcodedts)), StartupInfo, ProcInfo) Then
    begin
      ...
      Halt;
    end;
  {retrieves "Encode" button handle}
    Repeat
      handlew:= FindWindow(nil, PChar('DTS Encoder'));
    Until handlew <> 0;
    Repeat
      handlew1:= FindWindowEx(handlew, 0, PChar('#32770'), nil);
    Until handlew1 <> 0;
    Repeat
      handlew:= FindWindowEx(handlew1, 0, PChar('Button'), PChar('Encode'));
    Until handlew <> 0;
  {sends a click to "Encode" button}
    SendMessage(handlew, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, 0, MakeLParam(1, 1));
    SendMessage(handlew, WM_LBUTTONUP, 0, MakeLParam(1, 1));
  {waits for "Encode" button to get disabled -> encoding process started}
    While IsWindowEnabled(handlew) do ;
  {waits for "Encode" button to get enabled -> encoding process finished}
    While NOT IsWindowEnabled(handlew) do ;
  {closes Surcode CD}
    TerminateProcess(ProcInfo.hProcess, 0);

Thanks for the bug report!

UpMixGUI is supposed to handle any audio source that BeSweet is able to decode. Hopefully those bugs are fixed in this new release:

Wrong Bitrate

I am trying UpMixGUI and its awesome, just one question.
I am converting a wav file to dd 5.1 384 using softencode, the resulting file is fine except that its 448 bitrate. Any ideas,is softencode getting sent the wrong target bitrate.

Thanks

Lineman

You must have a proper ini file for Soft Encode set in Files Location.

As long as exists such a file, UpMixGUI updates its entry for bitrate every time you select a new one off Bitrate combo box and uses its parameters for encoding. Otherwise encoding is performed using default parameters (e.g. bitrate 448).

More info on such ini files read on Command Line Operation in Soft Encode's help.

Hello gircobain!

I think your tool looks very good, it is exactly what I need. Congratulations for the work!

YET, as I am a total newbie to sound encoding, I must be doing something VERY wrong because UpMixGUI doesn't save any file after finishing encoding - my output folder is empty

So here's what I use:
- BeSweetv1.5b29
- eac095pb5
- sox-12.17.1

I am trying to convert a stereo MP3 into an AC3 and I have selected the first option (ac3enc).

The program runs fine, it says it's decompressing the mp3, downmixing and creating the channels, I can see activity in the output/temp directory, however at the end of the process there's nothing in it.

I haven't installed any of the commercial encoding software - should I?

Thanks a lot for your answer!

cheerza,
glu
