WAVE Parser Filter

The WAVE Parser filter parses WAV-format audio data from .wav, .au, or .aif files. The upstream filter must be the Async File Source filter, URL File Source filter, or a compatible third-party asynchronous source filter that contains WAV audio data. The output stream is audio data, which you can connect directly to an audio rendering filter or to an intervening audio transform filter.

Remarks

This filter supports the following file types:

  • WAVE (.wav)
  • AIFF and AIFF-C (.aif)
  • AU (.au)

However, it has the following limitations on the audio format:

  • The audio must be 8-bit or 16-bit linear PCM.
  • For AIFF-C files, the audio must be uncompressed, in big-endian byte order (compression type 'NONE').
