Amiga-news.de posted a message from Todor Fay, formerly the lead programmer of Blue Ribbon Soundworks, creators of the legendary Amiga sequencer Bars & Pipes. Fay writes: "I've gotten clearance to release the source code for Bars&Pipes to the Amiga community." Read the full message below.

I think we can work towards a better solution:

I've gotten clearance to release the source code for Bars&Pipes to the Amiga community. This means several things:

1) Known bugs can be fixed.

2) Perhaps y'all can create special hooks for real time services (timer, midi in and out) in the Amiga code so it can connect more directly with the services in Windows. It's pretty amazing that timing works at all, given that it is running on an emulation of the audio interrupt (kudos to Brian King!). 'Course that would require changes to WinUAE to support this.

3) Port Bars&Pipes to Windows. If people want to collaborate on such a project, I will very gladly provide advice and assistance.

At this point, I'm collecting together the source code. I need to work with one or more developers who have Amiga dev environments up and running to help put this together. We need to make sure everything is there and compiles correctly.

Any volunteers?
