Audio API and Toolkit

Version v1.1.1

  • Added a fail-safety feature: it will prevent the Stardew Valley game from crashing when a cue is incorrectly called/not found.
  • “Defaulting Cue” is played when upon failure, that cue will play a role called silence.
  • The ability to forcibly add audio tracks to the jukebox. See “addtojukebox” command.
  • That thing is to cover migrations. Audio API and Toolkit mod that migrated from Custom Music to SAAT (all custom tracks removed from the jukebox playlist due to the prefix (cm:) notation CM required. SAAT validates all tracks in the jukebox and removes ones that are missing to prevent them.

Version v1.1.0

  • Added: Audio Track Settings.
  • Can set an entry in tracks.json to continuously loop
  • When a new game is created, you can set an entry to immediately add itself to the jukebox
  • Renamed Command:
  • “setdebug” –>  “audiodebug”:  a high possibility of conflict with other mods.
  • “gen_track_json” –> “tracktemplate”
  •  “audio_allocs” –>  “audioallocs”.
  • Command has had some formatting fixes
  • The audio allows command has an optional parameter now. Adding a track id will provide further details for a specific track
  • Done some internal restructuring
  • Updated Documentation 


What do Audio API and Toolkit do?

Come to explore SAAT on and check out the cool function of this mod.

The main function of SAAT is a framework aimed at adding, managing, and modifying audio tracks in Stardew Valley. That is a good way to help players get more experiences when it seeks to improve the audio engine at a later date (bcz XNA / MonoGame’s audio engine is lackluster in memory management and support. It aims to be harmony-less)

Current Functionality:

  • Allow brand new music and sound effect that will be added to Stardew Valley
  • Allows music to be added to the jukebox.

Upcoming features

  1. Audio Track Replacement / Overrides: Can replace existing audio tracks with another, overriding vanilla assets in a non-destructive manner.
  2. Audio Signal Processing (APS or DPS): Allow for audio to undergo low-pass, high-pass, altered pitch, effects, and more without the need to create another track.
  3. Proper memory management: A prime feature of Audio API and Toolkit mod, Stardew Valley relies on XNA / MonoGame to handle memory management for audio. Normally very poor in design for memory management as it loads all or nothing. The audio is chunked into memory rather than retailing all at once, so it creates a large consumption of memory.
    –> Ex: the winter music tracks are loaded into memory at the beginning of the game, even in spring. You will not hear any audio track for 3/4th of the game, however, it still consumes memory
    –> Take a note: This subset of the API / Mod will be written in C. Native is required to ensure performance.
  4. Packed Audio Format: The audio will be compacted into binary files on a per mod basis. so it also means allowing for faster loading/unloading /reloading operating.
    This function is not required in Audio API and Toolkit mod, but it will optimize performance. Especially for larger audio files.
  5. Toolkit for Packed Audio Format: It assists and encourage content creators in optimizing audio for performance, and creating the packed audio format mentioned above.
