Autoit microphone trigger

7 posts in this topic

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

My computer is too old because I am still on XP.  However, you might want to take a look at this.

You may also want to search the forum - there are many examples of recording sound.  Here is >one.

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.

I don't know offhand but I would keep searching.  I am sure it is documented somewhere.

P.S. I am "Jfish" - prodigy is the name the forum assigns to my level of activity just like you are currently "Seeker".

GeekIT,

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. :)
