Thanks. I haven’t logged in for a while. It looks like the site menu structure has changed. I think Log In should be Log In/Log Out.December 3, 2014 at 8:08 am #63786
Just installed a14, activated it, and got an expiry message a few minutes later. I closed and restarted it and it seems OK now.
Could you please elaborate on this: Added mode1 and mode2 URL commands which behave similar to music/movies commands
I have no idea what you’re talking about, but it sounds interesting. I don’t see any DPS options for this.
When are we going to be able to test the Profiles function?December 10, 2014 at 1:04 am #63785
The mode 1 and 2 URLs are simply related to this feature. This gives us a little flexibility in case someone wants to switch between something other than MUSIC and MOVIE modes. There are some corporate applications for this.
The PROFILES function will be working soon. This is the behind-the-scenes work we are doing now. We are completely rebuilding our servers handle larger loads which is no small task. But it is great work because it means we are growing 🙂
I’ll be tweaking the DPS Insider login bits soon so there are no dead links.December 10, 2014 at 7:24 am #63784
Thanks for the link to the functions page. Tried it and it works fine. Rather than a launch application window, I get an IE 11 message asking if I want to authorize an application to open.
Looking forward to testing the profiles function “soon”. I’m still waiting for separate music and movie profiles for my Bose QC15 headphones. 🙂December 19, 2014 at 4:14 am #63783hansParticipant
It would also be nice to have ‘stereo_on’/’stereo_off’ commands and to be able to switch profiles, like e.g. ‘external annapolis’ or ‘headphones boston’.
Btw, does the DPS effect strength depend on the input volume level?January 10, 2015 at 9:42 pm #63782soccerkingpilotMember
I can’t remember if I asked this but it’s in regards to the volume mixer (Windows). The DPS volume level is automatically set to 100%, which means I have to keep the Windows one below 55-60 unless I want to blow out my eardrums. Having roughly half the usual range limits my fidelity in controlling the volume at lower levels (0-10) and when I want to listen to music quietly it ends up being big jumps. Would it be possible let the end user control the DPS Windows volume and maybe set it to 75% instead?January 11, 2015 at 11:15 am #63781
Here’s my experience with the current version. If you are using headphones and have the DPS volume level set to whatever you like, DPS will remain at that volume level if you close and restart it. If you switch to speakers, DPS will move the volume up to 100% after you exit and will be at 100% when you restart it. That behaviour is the same as DPS 1.2.3.January 11, 2015 at 3:31 pm #63780
That is right, Jim. However, I think we will be adding a feature in the SETTINGS tab that will allow you to choose if DPS ever automatically changes the volume. That should work nicely for most headphone cases.
Yes, DPS is affected by the input volume. In most laptops, the volume controls will act as input level adjustment. If you want more details about how this affects the algorithm just let me know.
In other news:
We are stopping new applications for the DPS 2.0 early test program. Those of you who have access will continue to see new builds. However, I will not be signing up new users for this phase.
We have been making a lot of progress in the back-end of things. Look forward to a new build soon.
Happy New Year!January 11, 2015 at 4:33 pm #63779
I think adding the volume option is a good idea, so I’m casting my vote for it. 🙂January 12, 2015 at 6:15 am #63778ruslangParticipant

As a matter of interest, how many people are participating? I assume there are many who are participating, but not in this forum.January 12, 2015 at 11:52 am #63776
I stopped the signup once we reached 60 people. Obviously 60 are not participating here. No big deal, I just don’t want to proliferate alpha versions to much and cause confusion. We are hoping to get a few hundred more on board when we start the beta testing.
ruslang and all of you waiting anxiously for new builds,
Here are some of the exciting things in our pipeline so you can get an idea of why DPS 2.0 may appear slow to develop:
- Check out the news page on our corporate site. We have a major TV manufacturer integrating DPS into their products as we speak. This is very intensive and requires the efforts of our whole team.
- Have you seen our SDK website? This is the nexus of DPS 2.0. All of our audio processing code is now consolidated for use by any manufacturer on almost any operating system. This is a major project I spearheaded last April and is finally growing to fruition. The backend work I mentioned is related to this.
- Bongiovi medical – I’m on the medical research team as well. It’s great making your speakers and headphones sound good. But now we are using DPS to help save lives. This is the kind of work that lifts the soul.
It’s going to be an exciting year, my friends!January 12, 2015 at 12:38 pm #63775
Neat stuff! I’ve seen some of the Bongiovi announcements. One in particular sounded interesting, and that’s the headphones with built-in DPS. It’s nice to see DPS integration with devices like that and the TV announcement, which I also read somewhere.
Exciting times for you and your colleagues!January 22, 2015 at 4:08 am #63774thx1881Participant
Thank you for allow me to participate in this alpha testing stage… The trial has long since been over, I am looking forward for the final version.January 22, 2015 at 9:54 am #63773
