CubicSDR: New open source, cross platform SDR software

Over on YouTube a video showing off a preview version of a new cross platform and open source SDR software program has recently been uploaded. The software is named CubicSDR and aims to support all major operating systems including Linux, Windows and OSX. The code can be downloaded from its GitHub page at https://github.com/cjcliffe/CubicSDR.

CubicSDR currently supports the RTL-SDR, but in the future hopes to support the HackRF and other SDR’s. They also hope to eventually integrate several demodulation filters, make managing multiple SDRs easy and allow for scripting of custom demodulators.

    HI, how can I get a calibrated S meter indication on CubicSDR? I’m using Ubuntu 16.04 with an SDRPlay RSP1A. I can’t find documentation on this. Thanks

    Hello,
    Very “clear” waterfall and spectrum displays.
    At my point of vue, far better compared to SDR#, SDR Console and Open HPSDR and HDSDR.
    In my “wish” list:
    As we can read the “lowest” and “highest” levels on the main spectrum display, displaying the difference (SNR) would be very useful to do gain setting for example.

    Best regards and 73 QRO,
    Rudi, hb9ari

    It works on Win 7 64-bit, but the audio is stuttery unless the FFT display is paused by opening a drop-down menu or clicking on the UI. My machine’s well within spec for SDR and works very well with all other software.

    Looks promising but I still struggling compiling and building the source code on windows 8. 🙂 any documentation how to compile and build on windows?
