Does the Soundformat "PCM8" mean signed or unsinged 8 bit PCM samples?
FMOD expects the outside world to provide PCM8 as 8bit unsigned samples, like from a wav file. Internally though FMOD will convert it to 8bit signed.
Is there a way to use signed 8 bit samples without converting them?
Well I don’t really need is because the coversion is quite easy but I won’t have to write so much code and could directly read out the data from my file.
I should clarify, if you give FMOD a wav file it will expect the PCM data to be unsigned. However if you feed data via a user created sound FMOD will expect signed PCM.
Okay that’s what I wanted to know, thanks 😉
