Currently I’m developing an sound processing program with FMOD.
My program process thorough music at the start time. So, the speed is really important.
My program takes 3sec for a 4min music. And two-third of that time is used just for FSOUND_Update(). ( I tested it without any filter).
My coding like this.
FSOUND_Init(44100, 128, FSOUND_INIT_STREAM_FROM_MAIN_THREAD)
int limit = ((float) (FSOUND_Stream_GetLengthMs(stream) – FSOUND_Stream_GetPosition(stream))/ 1000.0f) * (44100.0f / 1024.0f );
for( int i=0; i< limit; i++)
FSOUND_Update(); // 43 times update means 1sec
Is there anyway to accelerate this process?
Or anyone can recommand any other method?

What are you trying to process?? It looks to me like you are just calling FSOUND_Update several times. The only thing that FSOUND_Update does is tell FMOD to get the next chunk of data. I would recommend using a DSP callback to process files, then when you use FSOUND_Update it would send the next chunk of data to your DSP callback for processing.

As Paranoid_Android said, I’m processing whole file with DSP callback with FSOUND_Update(). But it takes so long time.
I want dramatic cut down of the execution time.
Brett, can you tell me how to iterate each samples(or chunk of samples) after FSOUND_Sample_Load?
And, their are any way to FSOUND_Sample_Load target to only some part of a sound? ( to save time and memory)

What function can be used for load whole MP3 into memory?
How can I iterate( or get chunk of them) the data loaded in memory.
Can I load some part of MP3 into memory?
Thanks. The answer of these will really big helps for me.
1) Use the flag FSOUND_LOADMEMORY in FSOUND_Stream_Open.
3) I didn’t still prove it but one could make using FSOUND_Stream_SetTime or FSOUND_Stream_SetPosition to define where to begin and continuing with FSOUND_Update until the place where you want to finish. The quantity of data that will return the callback will be of 44100 samples per second (for a file of these characteristics). Then if you want to process 20 seconds in a file of 1 minute beginning from the 30 seconds, you would have to be positioned in the 30 seconds and to make FSOUND_Update some (882000 / size of the buffer) times. (20 x 44100 = 882000 samples).
