This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been researching java sound output and haven't found anything that suit's my fancy... My goal is to create a waveform of 44,100 samples per second and output that data directly through the computer in real time. I don't need to save the file or load files, I just need to take raw data and put in into a buffer which will in turn play the sound. Sounds simple enough, but everything I find online seems to require having files first.
One alternative, however dirty it may be, would be to have one process create the sound and dump it into 1s sound files, then have another process load those files and play them back to back so as to make it seamless.
No files-only requirement there, you can use any InputStream. I'm sure there's more like that. I wouldn't be surprised if you came across one of those cheapo "tutorials" which you don't even have to scroll down to read, and it only mentioned playing a sound clip from a file, but there's certainly more to it than that.
