ExportAndSplitStereoChannelsToFile method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Requests to export the given sound portion splitting the sound in two output files containing the left and right channels respectively. The sound encoding format is defined inside the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property.

An exporting session can be stopped at any time through a call to the ExportSoundCancel method.

 

In case you should need to export single channels (or channels pairs from multi-channel sound files) use the ExportChannelsToFile method.

 

If the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_WMA, the only supported encoding mode for the EncodeFormats.WMA.EncodeMode property is WMA_ENCODE_CBR_STD_16 and the WMA.CBR property must be set to a value that can support both stereo and mono, so the only compatible combinations are the following:

for sounds at 16000 Hz CBR must be set to 16000 (16 kbps)
for sounds at 22050 Hz CBR must be set to 20000 (20 kbps)
for sounds at 44100 Hz CBR must be set to 32000 (32 kbps) or 48000 (48 kbps)

 

If the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_WAV, the splitting will only work if the EncodeFormats.WAV.EncodeMode property is set to a format supporting both mono and stereo formats meaning that, for example, it will not work for mono-only formats like WAV_ENCODE_GSM_610 or WAV_ENCODE_G721_ADPCM_32.

 

If the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_AIFF, the splitting will only work if the EncodeFormats.AIFF.EncodeMode property is set to a format supporting both mono and stereo formats meaning that, for example, it will not work for mono-only formats like AIFF_ENCODE_GSM_610.

 

If the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_AU, the splitting will only work if the EncodeFormats.AU.EncodeMode property is set to a format supporting both mono and stereo formats meaning that, for example, it will not work for mono-only formats like AU_ENCODE_G721_ADPCM_32 or AU_ENCODE_G723_ADPCM_24 or AU_ENCODE_G723_ADPCM_40.

 

If the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_ACM, the splitting will only work if the selected codec supports both mono and stereo formats meaning that, for example, it will not work for mono-only codecs like GSM 6.10 or G721 ADPCM.

 

The split doesn't work if the EncodeFormats.FormatToUse property is set to ENCODING_FORMAT_AAC because this format doesn't support creating mono sounds.

 

A successful call to this method will fire the SoundExportStarted event followed by a number of SoundExportPerc events and finally by the SoundExportDone event.

Syntax

 

[Visual Basic]

Public Function ExportAndSplitStereoChannelsToFile (

nStartPosition as Int32,

nEndPosition as Int32,

strOutputPathLeft as string,

strOutputPathRight as string

) as enumErrorCodes


 

[C#]

public enumErrorCodes ExportAndSplitStereoChannelsToFile (

Int32 nStartPosition,

Int32 nEndPosition,

string strOutputPathLeft,

string strOutputPathRight

);


 

[C++]

public: enumErrorCodes ExportAndSplitStereoChannelsToFile (

Int32 nStartPosition,

Int32 nEndPosition,

string strOutputPathLeft,

string strOutputPathRight

);


 

Parameter

Description

 

 

nStartPosition

Start position, expressed in milliseconds, of the sound range to export

nEndPosition

End position, expressed in milliseconds, of the sound range to export. If set to -1 the end position will be set to the end of the sound.

strOutputPathLeft

String containing the absolute pathname of the destination file for the left channel. If this pathname should contain invalid characters, they would be automatically changed into an underscore '_' character.

strOutputPathRight

String containing the absolute pathname of the destination file for the right channel. If this pathname should contain invalid characters, they would be automatically changed into an underscore '_' character.

 

 

 

Return value

Meaning

 

 

Negative value

An error occurred. Check the LastError property value in order to see the last error.

enumErrorCodes.ERR_NOERROR (0)
