This library is not the highest-quality resampling library
available, nor is it the most flexible, nor is it the
fastest. But it is pretty good in all of these regards, and
it is quite portable. The best resampling library I am aware
of is libsamplerate by Erik de Castro Lopo. It's small, fast,
and very high quality. However, it uses the GPL for its
license (with commercial options available) and I needed
a more free library. So I wrote this library, using
the LGPL resample-1.7 library by Julius Smith as a basis.
Resample-1.7 is a fixed-point resampler, and as a result
has only limited precision. I rewrote it to use single-precision
floating-point arithmetic instead and increased the number
of filter coefficients between time steps significantly.
On modern processors it can resample in real time even
with this extra overhead.
Resample-1.7 was designed to read and write from files, so
I removed all of that code and replaced it with an API that
lets you pass samples in small chunks. It should be easy
to link to resample-1.7 as a library.
Changes in version 0.1.3:
* Fixed two bugs that were causing subtle problems
on Intel x86 processors due to differences in roundoff errors.
* Prefixed most function names with lrs and changed header file
from resample.h to libresample.h, to avoid namespace
collisions with existing programs and libraries.
* Added resample_dup (thanks to Glenn Maynard)
* Argument to resample_get_filter_width takes a const void *
(thanks to Glenn Maynard)
* resample-sndfile clips output to -1...1 (thanks to Glenn Maynard)
Usage notes:
- If the output buffer you pass is too small, resample_process
may not use any input samples because its internal output
buffer is too full to process any more. So do not assume
that it is an error just because no input samples were
consumed. Just keep passing valid output buffers.
- Given a resampling factor f > 1, and a number of input
samples n, the number of output samples should be between
floor(n - f) and ceil(n + f). In other words, if you
resample 1000 samples at a factor of 8, the number of
output samples might be between 7992 and 8008. Do not
assume that it will be exactly 8000. If you need exactly
8000 outputs, pad the input with extra zeros as necessary.
