ears is a simple library to play sounds and music in Rust.
- Provides an access to the OpenAL spatialization functionality in a simple way.
- Accepts a lot of audio formats, thanks to libsndfile.
You need to install OpenAL and libsndfile on your system:
sudo dnf install openal-soft-devel libsndfile-devel
Debian or Ubuntu:
sudo apt install libopenal-dev libsndfile1-dev
brew install openal-soft libsndfile
Install MSYS2 according to the instructions. Be sure to use the default installation folder (i.e.
C:\msys64), otherwise compiling won't work. Then, run the following in the MSYS2 shell:
pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-libsndfile mingw-w64-x86_64-openal
cargo run --example basic cargo run --example many_sounds cargo run --example music cargo run --example record cargo run --example simple_player
ears provides two ways to play audio files:
- The Sound class, which represents light sounds who can share a buffer of samples with another Sound.
- The Music class, which represents bigger sound and can't share sample buffers.
