Lecture 2: Playing recorded samples
What you’ll learn in this lecture
- The Bela C++ API
- Working with buffers (arrays) in C++
What you’ll make in this lecture
- Sample (audio file) player
sample-player: a partially complete project that plays a sound loaded from the flash storage. The sample loading is handled for you, but you have to fill in the real-time playback code in
sample-player-stereo: a variation on
sample-player that plays multi-channel audio files. Like the previous example, it is incomplete and you need to fill in the critical sections in
Running the examples in this course assumes that you have a Bela Starter Kit or Bela Mini Starter Kit.
This lecture does not require any other electronic hardware. However, other lectures will make use of sensors and other components. See Lecture 0 for a list of recommended parts.
