Detailed Description

STK base class.

Nearly all STK classes inherit from this class. The global sample rate and rawwave path variables can be queried and modified via Stk. In addition, this class provides error handling and byte-swapping functions.

The Synthesis ToolKit in C++ (STK) is a set of open source audio signal processing and algorithmic synthesis classes written in the C++ programming language. STK was designed to facilitate rapid development of music synthesis and audio processing software, with an emphasis on cross-platform functionality, realtime control, ease of use, and educational example code. STK currently runs with realtime support (audio and MIDI) on Linux, Macintosh OS X, and Windows computer platforms. Generic, non-realtime support has been tested under NeXTStep, Sun, and other platforms and should work with any standard C++ compiler.

Member Function Documentation

static void stk::Stk::setSampleRate ( StkFloat  rate  )  [static]

Static method that sets the STK sample rate.

The sample rate set using this method is queried by all STK classes that depend on its value. It is initialized to the default SRATE set in Stk.h. Many STK classes use the sample rate during instantiation. Therefore, if you wish to use a rate that is different from the default rate, it is imperative that it be set BEFORE STK objects are instantiated. A few classes that make use of the global STK sample rate are automatically notified when the rate changes so that internal class data can be appropriately updated. However, this has not been fully implemented. Specifically, classes that appropriately update their own data when either a setFrequency() or noteOn() function is called do not currently receive the automatic notification of rate change. If the user wants a specific class instance to ignore such notifications, perhaps in a multi-rate context, the function Stk::ignoreSampleRateChange() should be called.

void stk::Stk::ignoreSampleRateChange ( bool  ignore = true  )  [inline]

A function to enable/disable the automatic updating of class data when the STK sample rate changes.

This function allows the user to enable or disable class data updates in response to global sample rate changes on a class by class basis.

Reimplemented in stk::BiQuad, stk::FormSwep, stk::TwoPole, and stk::TwoZero.

00172 { ignoreSampleRateChange_ = ignore; };
