Author Topic: Get certain frequencies using ChannelGetData  (Read 531 times)

I am implementing BASS using C++, I have the data of the stream using ChannelGetData but I don't know how to process the data to check for bass, mid and treble peaks.

I was able to do so using utils with C# BASS, but in C++ I don't see this function.

Should I divide the data I have in three parts and check them? i.e. the first third will be bass the second third will be mid and the third part will be treble?

Yes, you would split the FFT data into 3 bands but probably not evenly, ie. not into thirds. You can calculate the split points like this:

Code: [Select]
BASS_ChannelGetInfo(handle, &info);
int split1 = fftsize * band2start / info.freq + 0.5;
int split2 = fftsize * band3start / info.freq + 0.5;

Where "band2start" and "band3start" are the frequencies that the 2nd and 3rd bands start at (eg. something like 250 and 4000), and "fftsize" is determined by the BASS_DATA_FFT flag used in the BASS_ChannelGetData call (eg. BASS_DATA_FFT512 = 512).

Thanks Ian!

Worked on the first try
