Audio input on RISC OS
Because of my past as a developer of audio software and hardware, I was asked by Stefan Fröhling from the Cloverleaf RISC OS Project to have a look at how audio input on RISC OS could be achieved in the new age of hardware.
I have written my thoughts as to how I would go about it (and a bit of history). I hadn't realised how much had changed since the last time I looked at audio!
I hope I have everything right here; when I started, I didn't know about the additions, and had to rejig it a number of times before I thought I had everything down.
The primary goals are to:
- Allow audio input
- Support multiple interfaces at the same time
- Have higher resolution formats
- Provide backward compatibility with what has been done before
There were a number of questions regarding SharedSound and why I've left it for another discussion. I've now written my thoughts on this, and also a few other things that had been raised.
