DESCRIPTION

This module allows recording of sound on Win32 platforms using the MCI interface (which depends on winmm.dll).

PREREQUISITES

An MCI compatible soundcard

USAGE

new()

The new() method is the constructor. It connects to the mci interface.

record([$bitspersample, $samplespersec, $channels])

This method starts recording the audio. After calling the record function, you should sleep() as long as you want to record. The three parameters are optional. $bitspersample defaults to 8, $samplespersec defaults to 11025, $channels defaults to 1.

play

This method plays back the unsaved recording buffer

stop

This method stops the playback or record action

save([$filename])

This methods closes and saves the recording. By default the recording buffer is saved in 'test.wav'. If you specify a valid $filename, the buffer is saved in that file
