Effects.PreAmplifierSpeakerValueGet method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Gets the current preamplifier's amplification value related to a specific speaker (only for multi-channel songs like 5.1 or 7.1). The current value can be modified through the Effects.PreAmplifierSpeakerValueSet method.

Pre-amplification is applied only if enabled through a previous call to the Effects.PreAmplifierEnable method.

 

See the How to apply special effects to a playing sound section for further details.

 

 

Syntax

 

[Visual Basic]

control.Effects.PreAmplifierSpeakerValueGet (

nPlayer as Integer,

nSpeaker as enumSpeakers

fValue as Single,

nScaleType as enumVolumeScales

) as enumErrorCodes


 

[C++]

short control.Effects.PreAmplifierSpeakerValueGet (

short nPlayer,

short nSpeaker,

float *fValue,

short nScaleType

);


 

 

Parameter

Description

Number representing the zero-based index of the involved player

nSpeaker

The output speaker assigned to the given player.

Supported values are the following:

Mnemonic value

Numeric value

Meaning

SPEAKER_FRONT

SPEAKER_FRONT_RIGHT

5

Front-right speaker (Mono)

SPEAKER_REAR_LEFT

6

and below you can see the positioning of the Mono speakers on the same wide 7.1 configuration

 

amp3dj_i00006d

fValue

Reference that, on return from the method call, will contain the amplification value expressed in the unit specified by the nScaleType parameter.

nScaleType

The amplification scaling type.

Supported values are the following:

Mnemonic constant

Value

Meaning

SCALE_LINEAR

0

Returned amplification, expressed in percentage, is based upon a linear scale:

- value 0.0 mutes the playing sound

- values higher than 0.0 and smaller than 100.0 attenuate the playing sound

- value 100.0 keeps sound level unchanged

- values higher than 100.0 amplify the playing sound

SCALE_LOG

1

Returned amplification, expressed in dB, is based upon a logarithmic scale:

- value -100.0 mutes the playing sound

- values higher than -100.0 and smaller than 0.0 attenuate the playing sound

- value 0.0 keeps sound level unchanged

- values higher than 0.0 amplify the playing sound

 

The actual applied formula for converting a linear volume into a logarithmic volume is the following:

VolumeInDB = 20 * log10 (VolumeLinear/100)

The C syntax for converting a logarithmic volume into a linear volume is the following:

VolumeLinear = 100 * pow (10, VolumeInDB/20);
