My passion project keeps evolving and getting muscles. The latest major update was published yesterday, which took me about a month to complete as opposed to the initially planned 1-2 weeks. The new version is now able to open sound datasets (any MIB generation) and interface configuration datasets of MIB2 (
0x003B00) and export them back to XML or HEX files.
This project keeps consuming a huge amount of time and effort, so I’ve decided to transition it to a shareware model. You can use it to browse files and check for changes done in the 010 Editor free of charge. True hackers do this constantly (I see you, guys 🥸). The locked parts are the “Export” buttons and checksum calculation, and these tools make editing accessible for amateurs and car audio services. The payments will be used to cover project hosting and motivate me to continue the development. All those who donated ANY amount prior to this will get lifetime access automatically. I’ve added your emails to the premium users list, waiting for the first login. If you don’t see the PRO badge, please contact me.
I’m using buymeacoffee service to process subscriptions, and the current implementation requires some manual work to activate the paid tier. I’m working on the automation, but for now, please allow me up to 12 hours to enable it. If you need it urgently, please contact me directly.
I have a long list of minor interface tweaks, which will be implemented without specific announcements in the coming days, like sync buttons to copy values from one channel to another, undo history, etc.
I’ve also parsed
0x003900 datasets used to store the same profile / channel data as
0x00300 but for the cabrio / roadster cars in the open-roof state, so it would be logical to add support for them too.
The next BIG milestone will be tone signals generation and measurements, which will allow you to connect a laptop directly to the AUX of the car (possibly via Bluetooth) and record the speaker frequency response graph and channel delays. This will make the editor a complete, full-cycle product. You will be able to measure, edit, and upload the settings back to the car, just like the VAG engineers do in their labs.
The team behind the More-Incredible-Bash project is also working to add easy datasets import / export functionality to their tool, so the ODIS / VCP wouldn’t be needed anymore.
There are still some bugs here and there, so please report them in the comments below. I’m trying to push updates daily.
UPDATE: There are some not so intuitive things in the interface I need to mention:
The mouse wheel has several actions assigned to it: it can be used to control the Q value of the current filter or adjust the value of any knob you are hovering over. This feature is especially useful and feels natural when using a touchpad or a mouse with inertial scrolling.
Additionally, double-clicking on the knob opens up an input field to update the value manually.
