AHI Preferences Editor
Purpose: To set preferences for the Audio Hardware Interface.
Format: AHI [<filename>] [EDIT | USE | SAVE] [PUBSCREEN <public screen name>]
Template: FROM, EDIT/S, USE/S, SAVE/S, PUBSCREEN/K
Path: SYS:Prefs/AHI
AHI provides the interface between the AmigaOne and the installed sound card and must be executed following startup or as part of the startup-sequence before sound will work.

AHI without any arguments or with the EDIT argument opens the AHI Preferences editor.

The FROM argument <filename> enables you to specify a file to open. This must be a file that was previously saved with the 'Save As' menu item of the AHI Preferences editor. For example, if you have previously saved a special configuration of the AHI Preferences editor to a file in the Presets drawer, you can use the FROM argument to open that file.

If the USE switch is also given, the AHI Preferences editor will not be opened, but the settings in the FROM file will be used.

If the SAVE switch is given, the AHI Preferences editor will not open, but the settings in the FROM file will be saved.

The PUBSCREEN option can be used to specify a <public screen name> where the AHI Preferences editor should open.

Instructions for using the AHI Preferences editor can be found here.

Example 1:

3.OS4:> AHI will open the AHI Preferences window.

Example 2:

3.OS4:> AHI USE will not open the AHI Preferences window, but simply start AHI ready for any program to use the sound facilities. This statement is usually added to the User-Startup.

Example 3:

3.OS4:> AHI FROM Xyz USE will not open the AHI Preferences window, but will use the saved AHI preferences from Xyz in SYS:Prefs/Presets.
