    Question Audio Processing Question

    Hi!!! ...I am just starting out on my final year project at university. My idea is to create an audio effects processor using C. Maybe it will have to be embedded into a device [with linux ported to it to run the software]. Basically, I want to have an audio stream and then a device which can adjust the amount of effect to add to the stream and then output the new stream with the effect added. I want to be able to have up to 3 simutaneous effects at any one time, and effects are assigned by using pre-programmed effects stored in the system; i.e. the effects could be:

    1. distortion
    2. vocalizer
    3. flanger
    4. jet effect
    5. phaser
    6. echo
    ....and the list goes on!!!

    Is it possible to do such programming in C; I'm thinking maybe i may have to learn active X or similar! ...Does anyone know any books that I could purchase to get started??? or resources that would be good to print out and read!!!

    Thanks... Matt!!!
    Many junglists take pride in their belongin to what may be referred to as a globalised drum & bass subculture, as a subculture though, it is not nearly as distinct at gothic or punk!

    If you're supposedly porting this to linux, then no, ActiveX won't be what you want to learn.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    > Is it possible to do such programming in C
    Why do people still ask such stupid questions when the world is full of software capable of all this kind of stuff?
    Do they imagine it's all written in some mysterious other language which can only be used for sound programming?

    "Is it possible to do such programming in C" - Yes, for damn sure it's possible
    "Is it possible for YOU to program it in C" - well that's rather harder to say, how good are you?

    This question has been asked six or eight times in the past month. Perhaps this should be an FAQ?

    Except the subject is far too vast, there are plenty of books and other websites to find the information on, and as everyone knows, nobody reads the FAQ.

    Aggreed, however, if someone comes looking for info and this forum can direct that person to the info in one step. . . isn't that what this forum is about?

    Granted there are thousands of ways to program a DSP, but if we could at least give people a place to start that may be all they need. I am, of course, speaking about those individuals that are looking for the place to start and just need a little push, not those that are wanting someone else to write the code.

    This then begs the question: Why have the FAQ?

    If one person out of 100 reads the FAQ and finds an answer to a question is not the FAQ's purpose fullfilled?

    EDIT: Besides, it would give quzah another way to torment people that post this question.

    You could always write one if you're that concerned about it.

    I'll do that. I know how for Linux using ALSA, however, It'll take time for me to find how to do it on Windows. I've NEVER tried it on MS, except back in DOS 6.4. . . but I cheated on that one.
