Class SoundbankResource


java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.sound.midi.SoundbankResource
Direct Known Subclasses:
Instrument

public abstract class SoundbankResource
extends Object

A SoundbankResource represents any audio resource stored in a Soundbank . Common soundbank resources include:

Synthesizers that use wavetable synthesis or related techniques play back the audio in a sample when synthesizing notes, often when emulating the real-world instrument that was originally recorded. However, there is not necessarily a one-to-one correspondence between the Instruments and samples in a Soundbank. A single Instrument can use multiple SoundbankResources (typically for notes of dissimilar pitch or brightness). Also, more than one Instrument can use the same sample.

Constructor Detail

SoundbankResource


protected SoundbankResource(Soundbank soundBank,
                            String name,
                            Class dataClass)
Constructs a new SoundbankResource from the given sound bank and wavetable index. (Setting the SoundbankResource's name, sampled audio data, and instruments is a subclass responsibility.)

Parameters:
soundBank - the sound bank containing this SoundbankResource
name - the name of the sample
dataClass - the class used to represent the sample's data
See Also:
getSoundbank() , getName() , getDataClass() , getData()
Method Detail

getSoundbank


public Soundbank getSoundbank()
Obtains the sound bank that contains this SoundbankResource.

Returns:
the sound bank in which this SoundbankResource is stored

getName


public String getName()
Obtains the name of the resource. This should generally be a string descriptive of the resource. This should generally be a string descriptive of the resource, and it should be unique within a given soundbank, so that a user can select an instrument based on its name.

Returns:
the instrument's name

getDataClass


public Class getDataClass()
Obtains the class used by this sample to represent its data. The object returned by getData will be of this class. If this SoundbankResource object does not support direct access to its data, returns null.

Returns:
the class used to represent the sample's data, or null if the data is not accessible

getData


public abstract Object getData()
Obtains the sampled audio that is stored in this SoundbankResource. The type of object returned depends on the implementation of the concrete class, and may be queried using getDataClass.

Returns:
an object containing the sampled audio data

getDataClass()
