Macro Definition Documentation

#define VAMP_API_VERSION   2

Plugin API version.

This is incremented when a change is made that changes the binary layout of the descriptor records. When this happens, there should be a mechanism for retaining compatibility with older hosts and/or plugins.

See also the vampApiVersion field in the plugin descriptor, and the hostApiVersion argument to the vampGetPluginDescriptor function.

Typedef Documentation

C language API for Vamp plugins.

This is the formal plugin API for Vamp. Plugin authors may prefer to use the C++ classes provided in the Vamp plugin SDK, instead of using this API directly. There is an adapter class provided that makes C++ plugins available using this C API with relatively little work, and the C++ headers are more thoroughly documented.

IMPORTANT: The comments in this file summarise the purpose of each of the declared fields and functions, but do not provide a complete guide to their permitted values and expected usage. Please refer to the C++ headers in the Vamp plugin SDK for further details and plugin lifecycle documentation.

Enumeration Type Documentation


Each process call returns results aligned with call's block start.


Returned results are evenly spaced at samplerate specified below.


Returned results have their own individual timestamps.

Function Documentation

const VampPluginDescriptor* vampGetPluginDescriptor ( unsigned int  hostApiVersion,
unsigned int  index 

Get the descriptor for a given plugin index in this library.

Return NULL if the index is outside the range of valid indices for this plugin library.

The hostApiVersion argument tells the library code the highest Vamp API version supported by the host. The function should return a plugin descriptor compatible with the highest API version supported by the library that is no higher than that supported by the host. Provided the descriptor has the correct vampApiVersion field for its actual compatibility level, the host should be able to do the right thing with it: use it if possible, discard it otherwise.

This is the only symbol that a Vamp plugin actually needs to export from its shared object; all others can be hidden. See the accompanying documentation for notes on how to achieve this with certain compilers.
