Convert Wave Sample Rate

Hi all

I am sampling audio from a number of sources mainly at 44100 16bit stereo but some sources are 48000 16bit stereo and I need to convert these sources to 44100.

I have the actual raw audio data available to me in memory so what I am looking for is some code (a function or procedure) which I can pass the audio data pointer and a target sample rate and have it returned in the correct format on-the-fly.

I can do this through the ACM but its not ideal and relies on opening, closing and managing the ACM. I would much prefere it in code.

I have searched the internet on some way to do this or even an explanation of how it could be done but I can't find anything. It's either really easy to do and I am overthinking it or it's just not very well documented.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi nacker2000.

You can use "ACS Audio Component Suite"  :  http://acs.ullihome.de/acs/index.php/Main_Page

It has a sample rate converter and its free.
Direct download link : http://acs.ullihome.de/acs/downloads/libs.zip

Hope this helps.

Also take a look at this PAQ:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Delphi/Q_20572504.html
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
To convert from 22.05 KHz to 11.025: Create another buffer that is half the size, and loop through the original buffer copying a sample and droping the next and so on until the end of buffer.

A single sample size is MS * SR
Where MS is 1 for mono, 2 for stereo
and SR is 1 for 8 bit and 2 for 16 bit.

Hi CodedK

Thanks for your posts. I have been working away on this problem and actually came across this example http://www.delphipraxis.net/topic104889_upsampling+algorithmus.html&highlight=upsampling on the Delphi Praxis site. Its in German but the code is English.

I modified the code so I could convert from any format to any format as in the code snippet.

The example I found and the converted code works the same as the idea you posted.

Both your posts were helpful and the link I posted and the code will hopefully come in handy for someone else.
type
  TWaveSample = record
    l: smallint;
    r: smallint;
  end;
 
procedure ConvertAudio(_in: TStream; _out: TStream; _inrate: integer = 48000; _outrate: integer = 44100);
var
  smpl1,smpl2,smpl3: TWaveSample;
  i,i2: int64;
  alength: int64;
begin
  _in.Position := 0;
 
  alength := round((_in.Size / sizeof(TWaveSample))*(_outrate / _inrate))+1;
  i := 0;
  if not assigned(_out) then
    _out := TMemoryStream.Create;
  _out.Position := 0;
  while i < alength do
    begin
      i2 := round(i*(_inrate/_outrate)) * sizeof(TWaveSample);
      _in.Position := i2;
      _in.Read(smpl1,sizeof(TWaveSample));
      smpl2.l := smpl1.l;
      smpl2.r := smpl1.r;
      _out.Write(smpl2,sizeof(TWaveSample));
      i := i + 1;
    end;
end;
