What's new in V2

IZ2UUF Morse Koch CW version 2 is a complete rewrite of the previous application. Despite of that, to avoid disorienting the current users, a great effort has been spent to maintain the interface operation and layout as close as possible to the previous one.

The new app is now based on a new sound engine that gives a very high control on timing, handles complex sound shapes and allows multiple sources to be mixed.

Thanks to the new engine, the new app has:

  • a better sound without the annoying clicks (soft attack/release);
  • a perfect synchronization sound/display, allowing text to be shown before or after a programmable time from the related CW sound;
  • the possibility of listening sounds with fating, noise, interferences and other disturbing effects;

Main changes

Besides the new engine, there some other major enhancements made to the V2 app:

  • Start screen — a new initial screen introduces to the exercise or to the exercise selection page; the same initial screen will be used to evidence new features and other news related to this app;
  • Exercise presets — a list of presets allow recalling configurations without having to manually change the settings every time;
  • Unlimited playback — the new exercise generation subsystem is now able to generate exercises of virtually infinte length, while in the old app length was limited by the size of an internal buffer;
  • Text typeback — the user can now type back with the keyboard the text it has received from the application; the app will check the result and evidence all errors;
  • Audio readback — the app can now read back the exercise with the synthesized voice, so the exercise can be quickly verified on the notepad;
  • Multilanguage — the app now supports localized interface; translations in various languages, maintained by mothertongue volunteers, will be available as soon as ready;
  • New readback voice — new readback voice
  • Short voice — now the readback voice can optionally say "A", "B", "C" instead of "ALPHA", "BRAVO", "CHARLIE" and so on;
  • New exercises — a set of new exercises like callsign recognition, QSO mode and many others to come;
  • International characters — over 100 international characters are now supported;
  • Bug fixing — most of the bugs reported have been fixed and a lot of new features requested by the users during these years have been implemented.
