Constructor & Destructor Documentation

AmplitudeFollower::AmplitudeFollower ( float  inputSampleRate)

An implementation of SuperCollider's amplitude-follower algorithm as a simple Vamp plugin.

Definition at line 56 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

Definition at line 65 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.


Member Function Documentation

bool AmplitudeFollower::initialise ( size_t  inputChannels,
size_t  stepSize,
size_t  blockSize 
) [virtual]

Initialise a plugin to prepare it for use with the given number of input channels, step size (window increment, in sample frames) and block size (window size, in sample frames).

The input sample rate should have been already specified at construction time.

Return true for successful initialisation, false if the number of input channels, step size and/or block size cannot be supported.

Implements Vamp::Plugin.

Definition at line 106 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

References Vamp::Plugin::getMaxChannelCount(), Vamp::Plugin::getMinChannelCount(), m_clampcoef, Vamp::Plugin::m_inputSampleRate, m_relaxcoef, and m_stepSize.

void AmplitudeFollower::reset ( ) [virtual]

Reset the plugin after use, to prepare it for another clean run.

Not called for the first initialisation (i.e. initialise must also do a reset).

Implements Vamp::Plugin.

Definition at line 123 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

References m_previn.

InputDomain AmplitudeFollower::getInputDomain ( ) const [inline, virtual]

Get the plugin's required input domain.

If this is TimeDomain, the samples provided to the process() function (below) will be in the time domain, as for a traditional audio processing plugin.

If this is FrequencyDomain, the host will carry out a windowed FFT of size equal to the negotiated block size on the data before passing the frequency bin data in to process(). The input data for the FFT will be rotated so as to place the origin in the centre of the block. The plugin does not get to choose the window type -- the host will either let the user do so, or will use a Hanning window.

Implements Vamp::Plugin.

Definition at line 56 of file AmplitudeFollower.h.

References Vamp::Plugin::TimeDomain.

string AmplitudeFollower::getIdentifier ( ) const [virtual]

Get the computer-usable name of the plugin.

This should be reasonably short and contain no whitespace or punctuation characters. It may only contain the characters [a-zA-Z0-9_-]. This is the authoritative way for a program to identify a plugin within a given library.

This text may be visible to the user, but it should not be the main text used to identify a plugin to the user (that will be the name, below).

Example: "zero_crossings"

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 70 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

string AmplitudeFollower::getName ( ) const [virtual]

Get a human-readable name or title of the plugin.

This should be brief and self-contained, as it may be used to identify the plugin to the user in isolation (i.e. without also showing the plugin's "identifier").

Example: "Zero Crossings"

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 76 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

string AmplitudeFollower::getDescription ( ) const [virtual]

Get a human-readable description for the plugin, typically a line of text that may optionally be displayed in addition to the plugin's "name".

May be empty if the name has said it all already.

Example: "Detect and count zero crossing points"

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 82 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

string AmplitudeFollower::getMaker ( ) const [virtual]

Get the name of the author or vendor of the plugin in human-readable form.

This should be a short identifying text, as it may be used to label plugins from the same source in a menu or similar.

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 88 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

int AmplitudeFollower::getPluginVersion ( ) const [virtual]

Get the version number of the plugin.

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 94 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

string AmplitudeFollower::getCopyright ( ) const [virtual]

Get the copyright statement or licensing summary for the plugin.

This can be an informative text, without the same presentation constraints as mentioned for getMaker above.

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 100 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

float AmplitudeFollower::getParameter ( std::string  ) const [virtual]

Get the value of a named parameter.

The argument is the identifier field from that parameter's descriptor.

Reimplemented from Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 189 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

References m_clampcoef, and m_relaxcoef.

void AmplitudeFollower::setParameter ( std::string  ,
float   
) [virtual]

Set a named parameter.

The first argument is the identifier field from that parameter's descriptor.

Reimplemented from Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 180 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

References m_clampcoef, and m_relaxcoef.

AmplitudeFollower::FeatureSet AmplitudeFollower::process ( const float *const *  inputBuffers,
Vamp::RealTime  timestamp 
) [virtual]

Process a single block of input data.

If the plugin's inputDomain is TimeDomain, inputBuffers will point to one array of floats per input channel, and each of these arrays will contain blockSize consecutive audio samples (the host will zero-pad as necessary). The timestamp in this case will be the real time in seconds of the start of the supplied block of samples.

If the plugin's inputDomain is FrequencyDomain, inputBuffers will point to one array of floats per input channel, and each of these arrays will contain blockSize/2+1 consecutive pairs of real and imaginary component floats corresponding to bins 0..(blockSize/2) of the FFT output. That is, bin 0 (the first pair of floats) contains the DC output, up to bin blockSize/2 which contains the Nyquist-frequency output. There will therefore be blockSize+2 floats per channel in total. The timestamp will be the real time in seconds of the centre of the FFT input window (i.e. the very first block passed to process might contain the FFT of half a block of zero samples and the first half-block of the actual data, with a timestamp of zero).

Return any features that have become available after this process call. (These do not necessarily have to fall within the process block, except for OneSamplePerStep outputs.)

Implements Vamp::Plugin.

Definition at line 201 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

References Vamp::Plugin::Feature::hasTimestamp, m_clampcoef, m_previn, m_relaxcoef, m_stepSize, and Vamp::Plugin::Feature::values.

After all blocks have been processed, calculate and return any remaining features derived from the complete input.

Implements Vamp::Plugin.

Definition at line 244 of file AmplitudeFollower.cpp.

virtual size_t Vamp::Plugin::getPreferredBlockSize ( ) const [inline, virtual, inherited]

Get the preferred block size (window size -- the number of sample frames passed in each block to the process() function).

This should be called before initialise().

A plugin that can handle any block size may return 0. The final block size will be set in the initialise() call.

Reimplemented in Vamp::HostExt::PluginBufferingAdapter, Vamp::HostExt::PluginInputDomainAdapter, Vamp::PluginHostAdapter, Vamp::HostExt::PluginWrapper, FixedTempoEstimator, and PercussionOnsetDetector.

Definition at line 179 of file vamp-sdk/Plugin.h.

Referenced by enumeratePlugins(), and runPlugin().

virtual size_t Vamp::Plugin::getPreferredStepSize ( ) const [inline, virtual, inherited]

Get the preferred step size (window increment -- the distance in sample frames between the start frames of consecutive blocks passed to the process() function) for the plugin.

This should be called before initialise().

A plugin may return 0 if it has no particular interest in the step size. In this case, the host should make the step size equal to the block size if the plugin is accepting input in the time domain. If the plugin is accepting input in the frequency domain, the host may use any step size. The final step size will be set in the initialise() call.

Reimplemented in Vamp::HostExt::PluginInputDomainAdapter, Vamp::PluginHostAdapter, Vamp::HostExt::PluginBufferingAdapter, Vamp::HostExt::PluginWrapper, FixedTempoEstimator, and PercussionOnsetDetector.

Definition at line 194 of file vamp-sdk/Plugin.h.

Referenced by enumeratePlugins(), and runPlugin().

virtual std::string Vamp::Plugin::getType ( ) const [inline, virtual, inherited]

Used to distinguish between Vamp::Plugin and other potential sibling subclasses of PluginBase.

Do not reimplement this function in your subclass.

Implements Vamp::PluginBase.

Definition at line 438 of file vamp-sdk/Plugin.h.

virtual unsigned int Vamp::PluginBase::getVampApiVersion ( ) const [inline, virtual, inherited]

Get the Vamp API compatibility level of the plugin.

Reimplemented in Vamp::PluginHostAdapter, and Vamp::HostExt::PluginWrapper.

Definition at line 68 of file vamp-sdk/PluginBase.h.

Referenced by enumeratePlugins().

virtual ProgramList Vamp::PluginBase::getPrograms ( ) const [inline, virtual, inherited]

Get the program settings available in this plugin.

A program is a named shorthand for a set of parameter values; changing the program may cause the plugin to alter the values of its published parameters (and/or non-public internal processing parameters). The host should re-read the plugin's parameter values after setting a new program.

The programs must have unique names.

Reimplemented in Vamp::PluginHostAdapter, and Vamp::HostExt::PluginWrapper.

Definition at line 237 of file vamp-sdk/PluginBase.h.

virtual std::string Vamp::PluginBase::getCurrentProgram ( ) const [inline, virtual, inherited]

Get the current program.

Reimplemented in Vamp::PluginHostAdapter, and Vamp::HostExt::PluginWrapper.

Definition at line 242 of file vamp-sdk/PluginBase.h.

virtual void Vamp::PluginBase::selectProgram ( std::string  ) [inline, virtual, inherited]

Select a program.

(If the given program name is not one of the available programs, do nothing.)

Reimplemented in Vamp::HostExt::PluginBufferingAdapter, Vamp::PluginHostAdapter, and Vamp::HostExt::PluginWrapper.
