Share:

Description

Get or set the number of channels of a Sample object or a wav file.

Usage

1
2
3
channels(s)
channels(s) <- value
setChannels(s,value)

Arguments

s

a Sample object, or a string giving the name of a wav file.

value

1 for mono, or 2 for stereo.

Details

The replacement form can be used to reset the number of channels of a Sample object (here, filenames are not accepted).

If a mono sample is transformed into a stereo sample, each channel of the stereo sample equals the waveform of the mono sample. If a stereo Sample is transformed to a mono sample, (left(s)+right(s))/2 is returned.

Value

For channels, the number of channels of the sample (1 for mono, 2 for stereo).

For setChannels, a Sample object with the new channels parameter.
