MP3's are really just a long sequence of numbers, that figures in a rather complex formular.

The principe is to
1. split the bandwidth into severel frequencies
2. construct a formular, which amplitude looks approx. like the waveform. The formular consists mainly of sines and cosines with variations in length and amplitude.
3. The mp3 stream is constructed by a number of frames, each with it's own 4 bytes long header with information on how to decrypt the folowing sequence of numbers. The header is described as an ISO standard.

If you have no mathematical experience, I surgest you to experiement on using existing components or code.

If you decide to give it a try anyway, I can provide you with information on how to analyse the header.

you better search the net for sound-components, because mp3 is very difficult format, and even if you can do it yourself, it would be very long and hard.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I seem to recall seening a component that does just this at www.torry.ru, just go to the vcl section then sound effects...

I have a component for that, to play a MP3 file.
It also can decode it to a wav file.
