ConvertFileRaw method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Converts the given sound file, stored in RAW format, using the sound encoding format defined inside the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property..

A conversion session can be stopped at any time through a call to the ConvertFileCancel method.

 

For converting a specific range within the sound file you can use the ConvertFileRawRange method.

 

During the conversion phase, a few effects, like Normalization and DC Offset removal, may be applied through the ConvertFileDestEffectsSet method and a few options may be set through the ConvertFileDestOptionsSet and through the ConvertFileDestResamplingSet methods.

 

A successful call to this method will fire the ConvertSoundFileStarted event followed by a number of ConvertSoundFilePerc events and finally by the ConvertSoundFileDone event.

 

 

Syntax

 

[Visual Basic]

control.ConvertFileRaw (

strSourcePathname as string,

nEncodeMode as enumRAWEncodeModes,

bIsBigEndian as enumBoolean,

nFrequency as Long,

nChannels as Long

) as enumErrorCodes


 

[C++]

short control.ConvertFileRaw (

LPCTSTR strSourcePathname,

short nEncodeMode,

short bIsBigEndian,

long nFrequency,

long nChannels

);

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, 2 for Stereo, 6 for 5.1 surround, etc.
