7:30 – 10:30 SR

  • Backups – I wonder if I can have the output go through a script that counts the number of “copied” and “moved” to report if the entire script executed correctly? Have to look into that.

Phil 5.29.13

8:00 – 1:00 SR

  • Backups
  • There was a demo today! Was invited in towards the end to talk about data security and roles.
  • Had a good idea about how to run the PA/RA code on one of our (Dreamhost? Steadfast?) servers and let the labs input their data directly. We could then ingest the data nightly. Need to research this a bit.

1:00 – 4:00 FP

  • Finished rolling up the SampleSounds(s) into BasicAudio.
  • Starting on 3D audio, using How to: Integrate X3DAudio with XAudio2
    • Adding the 3D calls to the main() in ConsoleSound2, just after the BasicAudio class has been initialized.
    • Had to add x3daudio.lib to the project and <x3daudio.h> to the #includes.
    • This looks to be the meat of the calculation. It looks like X3DCalculate() works on the relative position of an Emitter and the Listener and uses that to populate a DSP. Once that’s done, then the Audio2 source is manipulated appropriately.
    •         X3DAudioCalculate( g_audioState.x3DInstance, &g_audioState.listener, &g_audioState.emitter, dwCalcFlags,
                                 &g_audioState.dspSettings );
      
              IXAudio2SourceVoice* voice = g_audioState.pSourceVoice;
              if( voice )
              {
                  // Apply X3DAudio generated DSP settings to XAudio2
                  voice->SetFrequencyRatio( g_audioState.dspSettings.DopplerFactor );
                  voice->SetOutputMatrix( g_audioState.pMasteringVoice, INPUTCHANNELS, g_audioState.nChannels,
                                          g_audioState.matrixCoefficients );
      
                  voice->SetOutputMatrix(g_audioState.pSubmixVoice, 1, 1, &g_audioState.dspSettings.ReverbLevel);
      
                  XAUDIO2_FILTER_PARAMETERS FilterParametersDirect = { LowPassFilter, 2.0f * sinf(X3DAUDIO_PI/6.0f * g_audioState.dspSettings.LPFDirectCoefficient), 1.0f }; // see XAudio2CutoffFrequencyToRadians() in XAudio2.h for more information on the formula used here
                  voice->SetOutputFilterParameters(g_audioState.pMasteringVoice, &FilterParametersDirect);
                  XAUDIO2_FILTER_PARAMETERS FilterParametersReverb = { LowPassFilter, 2.0f * sinf(X3DAUDIO_PI/6.0f * g_audioState.dspSettings.LPFReverbCoefficient), 1.0f }; // see XAudio2CutoffFrequencyToRadians() in XAudio2.h for more information on the formula used here
                  voice->SetOutputFilterParameters(g_audioState.pSubmixVoice, &FilterParametersReverb);
              }

8:00 – 10:30 SR

  • Backups

10:30 – 4:00 FP

  • Comments on Ravi’s proposal
  • Working on getting multi buffer support. Done! Also got repeating sound working.
  • Going to put a basic Audio class together to manage SampleSounds.

Dong Shin 05.28.2013

  • continue working on RA/FA
    • contracts are now selectable/searchable in invoices
    • FMP’s working
    • working on Project View

Dong Shin 05.24.2013

  • deployed new FA/RA – everything seems well
  • continue working on FA/RA
    • working on Invoices to use new COGNOS contracts data

Phil 5.24.13

7:30 – 11:00 SR

  • Backups. And to make sure that it’s possible to see the results of the db backup script, I added in a “pause.exe” at the end of the batch file.
  • Deployed the new FA and RA
  • RA was taking a *long* time to start up. It turns out that the reason was that there were 17,000 alerts that were going into a DataGrid. The temporary fix was to delete the old alerts, but there needs to be a mechanism for determining/limiting what to show.

11:00 – 4:30FP

  • Building a copy of XAudio2BasicSound, cleverly calling ConsoleSound2.
  • Since it depends on SDKwavefile, I had to pull SAFE_DELETE, SAFE_DELETE_ARRAY, and SAFE_RELEASE from dxut.h. It also requires dxerr.h. but that’s in the regular directx include directory.
  • Extremely empty code right now, but it compiles and links. On a side note, the compiler should accept the environment variable $(DXSDK_DIR), but it doesn’t. And adding macros is an enormous pain, as near as I can tell.
  • The code is ported over and works. It’s all stuck in a main() right now. I need to clean up and build an Audio class. Actually, looking at the way the code is set up, a WavSampleSound class might be better. It probably could extend from a SampleSound class, but I’ll break that out later…
  • Class is mostly done and running!
  •  ConsoleSound2

Dong Shin 05.23.2013

  • VizTool meeting – showed new capabilities from FA/RA
  • Deployed new FA/RA
    • managed to find a bug where the list of projects not showing up when Req’s/Obligations/Outlays were cleaned up – fixed
  • Continue working on FA/RA
    • fixed goals not showing up after Financial Data edit

Phil 5.23.13

7:30 – 10:30 SR

  • Backups, and it turns out that there was a bug with the project_portfolio_enh db, where a view that referenced tables that no longer exist was trying to be serialized. Dropping the view fixed the problem.
  • Deployed the new FA, and changed the db around a bit to accommodate. Which caused all the data to disappear from the client due to a null return of a query. Which caused us to want to restore from the backups. Which brought the backup error to light. Fortunately, it’s a test db, and very little actual work was lost.
  • Looked at the server info in Xacta, which was a new, exciting thing. It looks like our current authority to operate expires 3/25/2014. Need to keep an eye on that.
  • Meeting with the PIT crew from 7:30-8:00, which I missed due to the fact that I was uploading the new FA in preparation for the *scheduled* 8:00 meeting. Dong caught it though. He showed/described FA and RA to the team and they are actually quite happy.

10:30 – 3:30 FP.

  • More Audio3d.
  • Starting to add in the 3dAudio based on this and this and this.
  • Got an audio link error and chased that down, discovering a few things along the way.
  • There is directX help for C++ in (“C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Documentation\DirectX9\directx_sdk.chm”). I don’t know it it’s any good, but I’m going to look though it next. Note that this is DX9, not 11. I’m *hoping* that this is all up to date…
  • Pointed Configuration Properties->Linker->General->Additional Library Directories at (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Lib\x86), and added the following files to Configuration Properties->Linker->Input->additional dependencies”
    • d3d11.lib
      d3dx11.lib
      winmm.lib
      xinput.lib
      X3DAudio.lib
    • This is a change from the libraries that the demo book points at, which were dxd9 libs. Recompiled and ran the code with no problems. I did attempt to clean up the xact3dInstance pointer in ~Audio3d(), but delete[] threw an exception
  • Reading through the DX documentation, which, though it is in the DX9 folder, contains information about DX11. Whatever.
  • The documentation is kind of what you’d expect, but it let me find the tutorials and demos, which are quite nice. On my machine, the demos that I’m interested in are located here: (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Samples\C++\XAudio2). It contains 4 projects:
    • XAudio2BasicSound
    • XAudioBasicStream
    • XAudio2CustomAPO
    • XAudio2Sound3D
  • Each project has source and MSVC2008 and MSVC2010 project files. I’ve just opened up the XAudio2Sound3D MSVC2010 project, and it compiled and ran just fine: XAudio2demo
  • This is almost exactly what I intend to build for the test environment, so that’s pretty cool. And using the buttons or the keyboard, I can drive the sound emitter around my head. Woohoo!
  • Next goal is to build up a copy of XAudio2BasicSound and then add the 3D components (without the graphics) from XAudio2Sound3D.

Phil 5.22.13

8:00 – 12:00, 3:00 – 4:00 SR

  • Backup.
  • ISSO Meeting – 8210 Dorsey Run Road, Jessup, MD
  • More resume variants
  • Meeting with Brad, our Program Manager.

12:00 – 1:30 Lunch with Greg

1:30 – 3:00 FP

  • Work on Audio3d class
  • It appears that you *have* to include <xact3.h> before <xact3d3.h>. It seems to be tied up with <x3daudio.h>, which is declared before <xact3.h> in <xact3d3.h>. If I reverse the order of those calls, no error messages. otherwise I get the following (included for the next poor soul who pastes this errot in Google):
