Sound Output Configure (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: March 15, 2017

Configures a sound output device to generate data. Use Sound Output Write to write the data to the device.

You must have DirectX 8.0 or later to use this node.

datatype_icon

number of samples/ch

Number of samples per channel in the buffer. Use a large number of samples for continuous operations. Use a smaller number of samples if you want to use less memory.

datatype_icon

sample mode

Setting to generate samples just once or continuously.

Name Value Description
Finite Samples 0

Generate samples just once. In this mode, call this node only until you have written the number of samples specified in number of samples/ch.

Continuous Samples 1

Generate samples continuously. In this mode, you can call this node repeatedly as needed.

Default: 1—Continuous Samples

datatype_icon

device ID

The input or output device you access for a sound operation. The value ranges from 0 to n-1, where n is the number of input or output devices on the computer. In general, most users should select 0.

Default: 0

datatype_icon

sound format

The acquisition rate, the number of channels, and the bits per sample of the sound operation. The values for each of these controls is dependent on your sound card.

Not all operating systems and sound cards support all sound format options.

Performance Details

sample rate (S/s) bits per sample
datatype_icon

sample rate (S/s)

Sampling rate for the sound operation. Common rates are 44,100 S/s, 22,050 S/s, and 11,025 S/s. The default is 22,050 S/s.

datatype_icon

number of channels

Number of channels. This input can accept as many channels as the sound card supports. For most sound cards 1 is Mono and 2 is Stereo.

datatype_icon

bits per sample

Quality of each sample in bits. Common resolutions are 16 bits and 8 bits.

Default: 16 bits

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

task ID

An identification number associated with the configuration on the specified device. You can pass task ID to other sound operation nodes.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
