I’m quite new to FMOD; I need to make a playback system in which, after loading and playing a MP3 file, I have to control and change the pitch and BPM of the song currently playing (for mixing purposes). I would like to know which is the exact functions I need to use for this purpose.
Thanks in advance and kind regards

Sorry Zeko, I’m programming in Visual Basic for about 3 years. All I know about programming come from MSDN Visual Studio and a lot from internet with free source codes and communities like the FMod’s one (just to think of Brett, Andrew, Panaroid Android, Karlkox, and all others who, like me, come everyday to look at new posts in order to help others). I’m not considering myself as an advanced programmers but I understand the examples (even if they are in C++ and I don’t really know that programmation) and at worst, I just have to ask something here and I will get a clear answer some hours after.
FMod is powerful and if you’re not able to use it, it’s your problem… if you want something easy to use, take the “Media Player” OCX, which is more at your level.

I think your a bunch of coding snobs, and if a solution CAN be completed well using a windows media ocx and two lines of code rather than 500 lines of script then it’s seems like a good idea to me ( more time down the pub ).
so just because your all very clever and know it all, give a break to someone who may not be ( or want to be ) involved as you are.
Shame on you, you bunch of geeks.
PS. Bass IS shite though.

We are reacting to Zeko’s anwser not about the the one from severino, i think you misunderstand us.

You judge but can you do better than BASS ? The snob is not the one which we believes.
why the worry over who can do better? , i have no interest in doing better – cause someone has already done the job for me – cheers fmod – top job.
it’s like everybody spending hours and hours writting and re-writting their own player that just copies winamp without adding any new functionality or bringing any NEW ideas to the table.
there, i said it.
[quote:2mkpws01]use BASS it’s much better than FMOD and has A LOT, A LOT!!! of Add-Ons for you, to make your programming very easily [/quote:2mkpws01]
I wanted to say something about this post but have not seen BASS so cannot really comment. All I know is that FMOD is extremely efficient and very well written and can do wonders for the intelligent programmer 8)
i guess you another one of the masses attempting to build a ‘DJ’ prog.
You can get the pitch shifting and frequency change easily through fmod, search the forum, there a good DSP_DLL. that does the trick.
as for BPM, well it seems to be the holy grail for fmod hobyists, nobody is giving anything away. FYI BASS offer a free BPM calculation prog, that could be used to DB the values away prior to mixing, and also a live function that could be used to match to BPM’s. but then it’s BASS and it’s crap.
OI FMOD, give us a BPM routine, before we all become BASS users
Severino: You can change pitch by using “setfrequency” function or similar.
As already answered above BPM detection is the “never revealed even more protected then M$ windows” function
Zeko: If you want to build your own player and you don’t know s*** about coding, then start with “Hello world” and try to use FMOD after 2-3 years.
[quote="Zeko":1ye5su7m]Sorry if it’s sounds that way, but I can’t find anything easy with FMOD, no add-ons/plug-ins, no user friendly functions, even the examples are so difficult to understand to a simple and maybe advanced programmers… etc. :cry:[/quote:1ye5su7m]
Perhaps you don’t have enough skills/neurons to use the power of FMOD … Try to use BASS under Linux, bass, gamecube or anything else BASS doesn’t support … The bass dll are not part of BASS but they are 3rd party components so if you want them for FMOD, code them and don’t complains because they don’t exists.
Btw, i think the FMOD community doesn’t need someone like you, that’s it.
