Files and formats of AudioChain

The format of the recorded audio files is a custom raw format. The file begins with a 16 byte header followed by the pcm signal. The header defines the encoding of the pcm and can be read by a hex editor. The header has the following structure.

Example: 'PCMS0116BE044100'. This header can be split into five sections.

Alternatively you can take a look at the audio project settings dialog. There are three of these settings displayed: Sample Rate, Sample Size In Bits and the Endianess. The channel count depends on the recorded file. So have a look at the recording audio device's combobox for file selection. Make a mouse over on it to let the tooltip information pop up. There will come up a descriptive information of the file. Directly following the filename is either the letter M or S, indicating mono (1 channel) or stereo (2 channels).

With this information you will be able to import the audio files into other sound editors, for example audacity has a raw import.
