Soundly is a small library in development which extends slick-util's sound functionality.

Primary aims:
- Further control over individual OpenAL sources.
- Further control over the OpenAL listener: its position, orientation, etc.
- Management of OpenAL sources based on priority, distance from listener, etc.

Why manage sources?
When you play a sound with OpenAL (i.e. with Slick2D or LWJGL), the sound relies on a "source". Depending on the machine and platform, you are often limited to work with a low number of sources. (The iPhone, for example, generally supports 32 sources with OpenAL -- i.e. 32 simultaneous sounds.)

With a flurry of gunshots, musical elements, voice-overs, footsteps, environment sounds, etc. it's easy to start racking up the sources. And when we reach this limit (Slick2D defaults to 64 sources), there are no more sound that can be played -- at least not until some of the action dies down!

In most games, by the time we have that many sources playing at once, the user won't notice if we remove some of the superfluous sounds (e.g. bird chirps, footstep) to make way for something that might be more important (another gunshot, a speech element, etc).

In comes Soundly. You define the importance of a Sound and let the sound manager handle the rest -- sounds will be swapped out based on priority, distance from listener, etc.

(Note: Soundly is in VERY early stages, and is subject to change.)

EDIT: Updated, completely refactored, removed superfluous interfaces, added "Mix" class for easy mixing of volumes/panning/etc., added the ability of groups within groups

EDIT2: This project is being put on hold for the time being.

I'm not sure if you are still reading this but what happened to your Soundly library? It's not going to get any update or do you have the LWJGL version? I've started using this a few weeks ago and the features Soundly offer bring great improvement to my game.

So far, the library is working like a charm but are there any features left out uncompleted when you stopped developing or any thing to take care of if I were to keep using the library? like are there known issues?

sorry for lots of questions.

edit: forgot to say "thank you" for making Soundly :p

I would like to see more of this too :D I would even to it myself if I had more time (I pretty happy I could some time to learn TWL, checked 1 of 1000 Things on my "To-Learn"-List).

Glad to hear Soundly is working out.

My last "update" ended up turning into a complete refactor, and now I'm planning to put it into a different library altogether (think Slick-Util but with modern OpenGL, a more powerful texture/audio API, and a sprite renderer). :P So I probably won't be updating Soundly. What features/updates are you looking for?

If you ever run into bugs with the current problem, I can probably help sort them out.

Looking forward to your new library, hope it can be used with slick xD

I haven't ran into any problem with Soundly so far, mainly I'm using it for playing ambient sounds and using distant radius feature and fading volume. Also planning to replace slick's Music class with Soundly for my game now. Was just wondering if there's any class you shouldn't be using or wanted to know if there were any known issues.

It's stable in my game so I guess I keep using it :)
