This page discusses the unofficial versions of Tachyon Audio Time Stretch, namely the versions for:
- Windows (32-bit);
- Linux (x86_64);
- Generic (Java).
For the official versions (Windows 64-bit and Mac OS), see the Home Page.
- Windows (32-bit): launch the .msi installer and follow the instructions.
- Command line: go to the directory that contains the .deb file and type sudo apt install ./Tachyon\ Audio\ Time\ Stretch-Linux-64bit-1.0.8.deb (The "./" in front of the file name is important so that apt recognizes it is a .deb file and not the name of a package).
- GUI: right-click of the .deb file, and choose "Open with GDebi Package Installer" or "Open with Software Install". You may need to install "gdebi" first.
- Command line: go to the directory that contains the .rpm file and type sudo dnf install Tachyon\ Audio\ Time\ Stretch-Linux-64bit-1.0.8.rpm.
- GUI: right-click of the .rpm file, and choose "Open with Software Install".
- Java (Generic): Read the "README.txt" and "TestedSystems.html" files that are included in the .zip file.
- Windows (32-bit): From the Windows start menu, choose Settings, Apps, Apps & Features. Search for "Tachyon Audio Time Stretch" and click "Uninstall".
- Open a command-line and type sudo apt remove tachyon-audio-time-stretch
- Open a command-line and type sudo dnf remove tachyon-audio-time-stretch
- Java (Generic): There is no installer, this is a "portable" version. Just delete the "Tachyon-Generic" directory.
- Windows (32-bit):
- Tachyon takes at most 1 GB of RAM, regardless of the available RAM.
- If less than 1 GB is available, the computer may swap.
- This allows you to transform two 44.1 kHz stereo files at a time, or one stereo 96 kHz file at a time, at the maximum quality.
- Higher sample rates (or multi-channel) files hence cannot be transformed, or only with lower quality settings.
- This is only for 64-bit Intel/AMD processors (x86_64 or amd64). For Linux on other processors, the "Generic (Java)" version can be used.
- The DEB / RPM packages should add an entry to the menu, however on some systems they don't.
- In that case this should be done manually using a menu editor.
- The Tachyon application is installed in "/opt/tachyon-audio-time-stretch/bin". The executable file is named "Tachyon Audio Time Stretch". An icon can be found in the same directory.
- There are various issues on scaled displays.
- From within Tachyon, choose the menu "File", "Settings", tab "Appearance". Try the different options: sometimes some skins do not work on scaled display while others work.
- On some systems, setting the GDK_SCALE=2 environment variable helps.
- Generic (Java)
- This version is only for advanced users! If you are not comfortable with shell scripts or .bat files, do not use it.
- This version does not come with an installer.
- It requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 8 or greater (at least 11 recommended) to be installed.
- It probably requires modifying the included .sh or .bat script to launch the application.
- Please refer to the "README.txt" and "TestedSystems.html" files that are included in the download.
- There is no guarantee it will work on your system. Only limited testing has been done.
