static Sound FromSamples(Single[] samplesAt48000s)

This function will create a sound from an array of samples. Values should range from -1 to +1, and there should be 48,000 values per second of audio.

Single[] samplesAt48000s Values should range from -1 to +1, and there should be 48,000 per second of audio.
RETURNS: Sound Returns a sound effect from the samples provided! Or null if something went wrong.


Recording Audio Snippets

A common use case for the microphone would be to record a snippet of audio! This demo is a window that will read data from the Microphone, and use that to create a sound for playback.

Audio recording window

Sound       recordedSound   = null;
List<float> recordedData    = new List<float>();
float[]     sampleBuffer    = null;
bool        recording       = false;
Pose        recordingWindow = (Demo.contentPose * Matrix.T(-0.15f,0,0)).Pose;

void RecordAudio()
	UI.WindowBegin("Recording Panel", ref recordingWindow);

	// This code will begin a new recording, or finish an existing
	// recording!
	if (UI.Toggle("Record!", ref recording))
		if (recording)
			// Clear out our data, and start up the mic!
			recording = Microphone.Start();
			if (!recording)
				Log.Warn("Recording failed to start!");
			// Stop the mic, and pour our recorded samples into a new Sound
			recordedSound = Sound.FromSamples(recordedData.ToArray());

	// If the mic is recording, every frame we'll want to grab all the data
	// from the Microphone's audio stream, and store it until we can make
	// a complete sound from it.
	if (Microphone.IsRecording)
		if (sampleBuffer == null || sampleBuffer.Length < Microphone.Sound.UnreadSamples)
			sampleBuffer = new float[Microphone.Sound.UnreadSamples];
		int read = Microphone.Sound.ReadSamples(ref sampleBuffer);

	// Let the user know the current status of our recording code.
	if      (Microphone.IsRecording) UI.Label("recording...");
	else if (recordedSound != null)  UI.Label($"{recordedSound.Duration:0.#}s");
	else                             UI.Label("...");

	// If we have a recording, give the user a button that'll play it back!
	UI.PushEnabled(recordedSound != null);
	if (UI.Button("Play Recording"))

Generating a sound via samples

Making a procedural sound is pretty straightforward! Here’s an example of building a 500ms sound from two frequencies of sin wave.

float[] samples = new float[(int)(48000*0.5f)];
for (int i = 0; i < samples.Length; i++)
	float t = i/48000.0f;
	float band1 = SKMath.Sin(t * 523.25f * SKMath.Tau); // a 'C' tone
	float band2 = SKMath.Sin(t * 659.25f * SKMath.Tau); // an 'E' tone
	const float volume = 0.1f;
	samples[i] = (band1 * 0.6f + band2 * 0.4f) * volume;
Sound sampleSound = Sound.FromSamples(samples);
