Autoit microphone trigger

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I was searching the internet to find some answers on how to

trigger a sound recorder when the sound (revived with a microphone) is above some level.

To be clear: is it possible in Autoit to see when the microphone receives some hard sounds to trigger an event?

this would be cool because you could trigger an event from a distance with sound e.g. clap twice to play some music or something  :P

Thanks Prodigy.

I find a lot about recording sound, and a bunch of high level api's

but nothing about monitoring the loudness of the microphone input...

I want to monitor if there is sound in the room above some level of decibels, if that is detected -> trigger an event.

BASS.DLL might be able to determine microphone input volumes - it seems to be able to do most things audio. There is an existing AutoIt UDF for it here. :)
