LoadSoundFromRawFile method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Loads a sound from a file in RAW format..

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 LoadSoundChannelFromRawFile method.

During the execution of the loading session the CallbackPercentage delegate is invoked, with the nOperation parameter set to OPERATION_SOUND_LOADING, in order to notify about the percentage of advancement of the loading session.

 

For further details about callback delegates see the How to synchronize the container application with the API tutorial.
