Sound File Read (I16) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Reads 16-bit signed integer numeric data from a .wav file into an array of waveforms.

The Y component of the waveform this node returns is an array of signed 16-bit integers.

Note  

This node retrieves only uncompressed .wav files. Read .wav files in chunks to avoid using large amounts of memory.

Programming Patterns

To create a sound file reference, use the Sound File Open node and wire the absolute path of a .wav file to the sound file input. Then, wire the reference output of Sound File Open to the input of this node.

datatype_icon

number of samples/ch

Number of samples per channel to read from the file.

Default: -1—Specifies all samples.

datatype_icon

reference in

Reference to the .wav file in memory.

datatype_icon

position mode

The position at which the read operation begins, together with position offset.

Name Value Description
Absolute 0

Starts the operation at the beginning of the file plus position offset, so the offset is relative to the beginning of the file.

Relative 1

Starts the operation at the current location of the file mark plus position offset.

Default: Relative

datatype_icon

position offset

The position at which the read operation begins away from position mode, in units of samples.

Default: 0

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

end of file

A Boolean that indicates whether the node has read the entire file.

True The node has read the entire file.
False The node did not finish reading the entire file.
datatype_icon

reference out

Reference to the .wav file specified by reference in.

datatype_icon

data

Any sound data read from the file. For multi-channel sound data, data is an array of waveforms where each element of the array is a single channel.

datatype_icon

offset

The new location of the file marker relative to the beginning of the file, in units of samples.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
