LoadSoundFromRawMemory method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Loads a sound in RAW format contained inside a memory buffer.

You can manage how loaded sound will be added to the existing editing session through a previous call to the SetLoadingMode method.

You can limit the range of sound data that will be loaded from the given sound file with a previous call to the SetLoadingRange method.

 

Multi-channel formats are supported natively when the MultiChannelLoadingModeSet method has been invoked with the nMode parameter set to MULTICHAN_DOWNMIX_NONE while in other cases will be converted to stereo during the loading procedure.

 

In case you should need loading a specific single channel of the raw audio file, use the LoadSoundChannelFromRawMemory method.

A successful call to this method will fire the SoundLoadingStarted event followed by a number of SoundLoadingPerc events and finally by the SoundLoadingDone event.

 

IMPORTANT TOPIC: remember that the memory buffer containing song data must not be moved by the garbage collector and needs to be available till the call to the CloseSound method.

 

 

Syntax

 

[Visual Basic]

control.LoadSoundFromRawMemory (

pBuffer as variant,

nBufferLen as long,

nEncodeMode as enumRAWEncodeModes,

bIsBigEndian as enumBoolean,

nFrequency as Long,

nChannels as Long

) as enumErrorCodes


 

[C++]

short control.LoadSoundFromRawMemory (

const VARIANT FAR& pBuffer,

long nBufferLen,

short nEncodeMode,

short bIsBigEndian,

long nFrequency,

long nChannels

);


 

 

Parameter

Description

bIsBigEndian

Boolean flag that specifies if bits order inside the RAW file are little-endian or big-endian

Supported values are the following:

Mnemonic Value

Meaning

BOOL_FALSE

The RAW file is encoded using little-endian

BOOL_TRUE

The RAW file is encoded using big-endian

nFrequency

Sample rate of the RAW file (e.g. 44100)

nChannels

Number of channels of the RAW file: for example, 1 for Mono or 2 for Stereo, 6 for 5.1 formats and so on

 

 

Return value
