There is a rqmt in which I need to select a specific Audio Wav file do some filtering for the wav file and play it. The need is to have a platform independent appln and hence I went for java. But also the quality of the sound played should be equivalent to Window media player. But as far i could from a sample program that i ran in WIndows the quality is relatively poor by using java sound api. Does Java sound Api provide api to tune the quality or is java not a viable option to get good quality sound?? Suggestion reqd... Thanks in advance..
According to Sun, the Java Sound engine can render 8 or 16 bit audio data, in mono or stereo, with sample rates from 8KHz to 48KHz. Is your wav file of a different quality than one of these supported qualities? I just played a few sound files through a simple Java application, and they sounded pretty good - just as good as with Windows Media Player. Perhaps a driver issue is haunting you.
