Accessing the Internal microphone

Post by garyb » Fri Feb 06, 2015 2:57 pm

Hi Guys looking to understand if there are routines I can use when wanting to record music from the internal microphone.

I essentially want to take the music analyse if for scale and tone and then provide feed back to improve the tone of the instrument.

This will require me to take the data-in and then work with it.. There will be no requirement to play the recording back.

Are there routines that can process musics data streams and process accordingly.

Kind regards

On Linux you can use sox or arecord, for example:

Code: Select all

shell("sox -t alsa default output.wav")

Check "record sound" in the Dictionary.
