Development: It was in summer 2004. I decided to learn a programming
language, but didn't know which one. I wanted (want) to learn 3
things at all costs: programming microcontrollers (for building cool
tools like HUIs for mixing music (Assembler, C++), simply programming
in C++ (for example VST audio plugins) or simply programming in Java.
I decided to omit the hardware stuff for a start and thought about
cool projects that could keep my enthusiasm alive. I'm always a
friend of aiming high and so I had the idea to build a FEM (finite
element method)in C++ or make a cool graphical user interface (GUI)
for room mode calculations as my 'hello world'. I decided to go for
java and if I wasn't a java-programmer now, I think I would have a
HUI and a FEM too :D.
At that time it was an application (not an applet) but I thought there could be more people out there who could want to have the possibility to make those easy screenshots. So I made an applet (small applications especially for browsers), translated it into English and wrote some text for a page...and now I stop, because I have to download the VST-Api and/or buy a microcontroller :)
I hope you will like amroc too :) Have fun!
