How can we protect Wav files for a rompler?

Re: How can we protect Wav files for a rompler?

Thanks for all your ideas and input guys. :D

I came up with a “weak” solution, but in the end Johan changed his mind and thought that allowing a user access to his wavs would be ok. Also the new rompler version can load the user’s own wavs, which of course won’t be “protected”.

The system I came up with needed a batch process to add a defined number of samples of silence at the start of each wav, just over 3 seconds. The exact number of samples is known of course, and added as an offset to the waveform table’s reader index. This means the wav player will always start at the correct point in the wav file, but if anyone wants to use a wav they would have to remove the silence first and may be discouraged.

I wanted to add white noise instead of silence, to give the impression of encryption, but I couldn’t find an editor that allowed adding white noise of a defined time at the start and as a batch process too.

Cheers

I think you’re completely right Michael.

I’m not sure what changed Johan’s mind, but he may well have thought the same thing. In fact on his website he says you can use his samples elsewhere, but why would you when his rompler is so damn good (sales blurb)!

I thought of all sorts or protections, but the more complex ones like yours would entail increased CPU in the reader, and a formidable exercise to batch process hundreds of wavs.
