I’m not a programmer, and I couldn’t find a topic about this.
I wonder whether fmod does any conversion of sample rate, especially in case of non-standards sample rates (e.g 28kHz or 12698Hz…).
I try to find what’s the best sample rate for my sounds, to save the maximum of RAM (lower sample rate, lower used RAM, I’m right?). But I’m afraid that if I import a 28kHz sound, or other non-standard sample rate it should be resampled to a 32 kHz sound or other valid sample rate…In that case the loss of quality should be useless. I’m talking about PCM Wav files.
Hope someone will understand my poor english and answer to me!
Thanks a lot

Thanks for your reply, so I understand that no change in RAM use will happen if I upload lower sample rate files, because it will be automatically resampled by fmod to default frequency (48kHz in case of PC), right?
EDIT: I have changed my response here, it contained incorrect information.
If you resample your source wave data to a lower rate you will save memory when it is loaded by FMOD.
FMOD will resample that data to the system rate (generally 48KHz, but settable by the programmer) at runtime.
