Recommended Posts

Hello, I search to save Bass output channel after a VST effect pluggin !!

I found, with an example, how to launch and play Bass VST pluggin. :thumbsup:

But i don't found how to save the result to a file (wav or mp3). >_<

Can anybody help me, please ? :shifty:

#include <BassVST.au3>
#include <BassVSTConstants.au3>
#include <Bass.au3>
#include <BassConstants.au3>

$vst_dll = @ScriptDir & "\epicVerb.dll"
_BASS_STARTUP ( @ScriptDir & "\BASS.dll")
_BASS_VST_STARTUP ( @ScriptDir & "\bass_vst.dll")
$GUI = GuiCreate ("GUI", 990, 190)
_BASS_Init(0, -1, 44100, 0, "") ;Initalize bass.
If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not initialize audio")
$file = FileOpenDialog("Open...", "", "MP3 Files (*.mp3)") ;Open file dialog.
$MusicHandle = _BASS_StreamCreateFile(False, $file, 0, 0, 0) ;Create a stream with file.
If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not load audio file" & @CR & "Error = " & @error)

$chan = _BASS_VST_ChannelSetDSP($MusicHandle, $vst_dll, 0, 0)
_BASS_ChannelPlay($MusicHandle, False) ;Iniate playback
$song_length = _BASS_ChannelGetLength($MusicHandle, $BASS_POS_BYTE) ;Get the length of the song in bytes.
_BASS_VST_EmbedEditor($chan, $GUI)

GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    If GUIGetMsg () = -3 Then
    If _BASS_ChannelGetPosition($MusicHandle, $BASS_POS_BYTE) >= $song_length Then ExitLoop

Func OnAutoItExit()

-Should I use Bass_Record ??

-And then how to save the file ? Which Bass function use to save ?

In other language (VB.Net), I saw the use of "WaveWriter" to save !

Can you help me to take the good way ?


I have found this: Topic: Saving a mixer stream (with syncs) to file

WaveWriter ww = new WaveWriter(filename, mixerStream, 32, true);
         float[] data = new float[32768];
         while (Bass.BASS_ChannelIsActive(mixerStream) == BASSActive.BASS_ACTIVE_PLAYING)
             int length = Bass.BASS_ChannelGetData(mixerStream, data, data.Length);
             if (length > 0 )
                 ww.Write(data, length);
             else break;

I don't know if you've stumbled upon this or not but here is anyway.

The UDF is to advanced for me but I think BrettF wrote it so maybe you could PM him.

Thank you for your response Decipher.

Yes I have read this post.

The simply way to record: " SoundRecorder.exe", but in my case he is not working correctly with my sound card. >_<

Problem: "Periphérique d'enregistrement audio introuvable", he not found record device.

All program sound working correctly but microsoft recorder software not working. :nuke:

Another, working, way (for mee) is to use "ffmpeg", but I found this way not a real solution,

too heavy: 22MB just to save a .wav sound. :

I think the correct solution is to write a function same as "WaveWriter" to record sound to file. But I don't have the level for this.

I think we need to use Bass_ChannelGetData to take data before save it.

I continue to search :sweating: , thx.

I have found a solution to record sound after VST effect. :sorcerer:

I post the resulting code:
