Audio Support in Flash Player 10
There have been some audio enhancements added to the new Flash Player, which is now available in beta on Adobe Labs:
The new feature that was added for Flash Player 10 (aka Astro) is called “Dynamic Sound Generation.” Dynamic Sound Generation is an extension to the Sound class that plays back dynamically created audio content through the use of an event listener on the Sound object. This enables audio data generated by Actionscript to be passed to the sound card.
Tinic Uro, one of the engineers on the Flash Player team, has posted details on this new function on his blog linked below. Part 1 is some background info on audio support in the Flash Player, part 2 documents the new API and part 3 documents an additional Sound object method.
And to our friends at the Adobe Make Some Noise Campaign, we heard you. ☺
