MobileBAE

From Legacy Portable Computing Wiki

MobileBAE is a mobile sample-based audio engine developed by Beatnik from 2001 to 2005, succeeding the MiniBAE engine. It's a version of MiniBAE rewritten to use the more standard Downloadable Sounds (Mobile DLS) format for storing soundbanks. Some implementations are not backwards compatible though, as they doesn't support .hsb banks. There have been rumors of some implementations (i.e Panasonic X700) having partial .hsb support. In addition, MobileBAE has partial RMF support, though it doesn't support flange and reso effects. It has not been made open source, as both Nokia and Samsung continued to use it on their phones until 2013, 4 years after Beatnik terminated operations, so there is no legal entity to represent Beatnik.
