Thank for chiming in Adam. Cell phones today are starting to make interesting music. I can totally imagine cell phones in a few years having more interesting DSP like reverb, spatialization, etc. I for one don't want to ghettoize them in the early stages of defining this spec. _____ From: Shelly, Adam [mailto:Adam.Shelly@xxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, December 10, 2003 10:19 PM To: gmpi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: [gmpi] Re: Reqs 3.8 Marc Poirier wrote: >> but I will say that I think that it's worth being a little realistic >> and specific about who really will be needing >> integer sample support, if anyone. >> Some have I think said that some >> cellphones will need integer sample format support >> Okay, but are any cellphones really going to be running GMPI plugins? 2 comments about integer support: - The whole reason I am lurking on this list is to try to determine whether GMPI can offer anything useful to audio on cellphones. I definitely think DSP can be used to enhance mobile audio. A bunch of today's mobile hardware does not have any floating point capabilities. - Back when I was working primarily on game console audio tools, I often heard that our tool would be killer if it supported plugins like VST or something. Any plugins would have to be fixed-point, as the PS2 audio chip does not have floating point capabilities. So I for one am interested in determining how GMPI can support fixed-point systems. But I may be the only one. -Adam ----------------- Adam Shelly Analog Devices My opinions, not theirs.
