My final project to complete c++ in university is to write application which will measure heart pulse via standard microphone.Because i am not so familiar with stl and c++ as with c# and .net i would like ask you to help me choose library for capture audio from mic and then filter out background noise signals and detect only the sound of the pulse. As far as i know there are available following libraries:
Windows Core Audio
What library will be most suitable for this task and will have some nice tutorials ?
OS MS Windows, IDE VS2010.
I would be grateful for any tips.
