Read an MPEG-2 layer 3 file into a Wave object

Description

A bare bones MPEG-2 layer 3 (MP3) file reader that returns the results as 16bit PCM data stored in a Wave object.

Usage

1
readMP3(filename)

Arguments

filename

Filename of MP3 file.

Value

A Wave object.

Note

The decoder can currently only handle files which are either mono or stereo. This is a limitation of the Wave object and the underlying MAD decoder.
