Looking for audio effect library

Started by Karmas Lin November 18, 2003
Hi all,

I'm looking for the audio effect library (commercial or public domain),
I need the compressor, EQ, reverb, chorus, flanger... to process wave
files on PC. It may be static or dynamic library and can be called by
my Windows application.
Can any one tell me where to get/buy?
I've search for the FAQ of comp.dsp and can not find suitable library...
Thanks in advance.


check out the [free] directx 9 sdk, lots of directx dmos (direct media 
objects) that you can plug into your app...

Using the term "library" fairly loosely:

OpenSource libraries include STK (all C++)  by Perry Cook:

http://www-ccrma.stanford.edu/software/stk/

and CMix:

http://www.music.princeton.edu/winham/cmix.html


There is also a lot of useful stuff at the musicdsp archive:

http://www.musicdsp.org

This includes implementations of the rbj EQ cookbook, which is very much 
the de facto standard for implementing EQ. Apparently it is used in 
commercial applications as well as in free ones.

it also has info about the musicdsp list, which you might find useful to 
join.

Compression functions seem to be less common in libraries. There is one 
in Audacity:

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

And here is source for a DirectX plugin based on the Cakewalk SDK:

Finally, you will find loads of links to all sorts of audio things at 
Dave Phillips' Linux Sound site:

All public domain of course, and usually GPL. Some code may be LGPL.
