Abstract

A process for dynamically adjusting audio parameters based on system load and resource conditions. This is accomplished monitoring the system status and making the appropriate dynamic adjustments in such a manner as to place the system with in its normal operating range.

Process and method for dynamically adjusting audio parameters

   Disclosed is a method for dynamically adjusting the audio parameters based on system load and resources conditions. This is best illustrated by looking at the following flow chart. Note that audio adjustment are only made after it is determined that they are necessary (eg. outside the normal operating range).

Some example audio parameters that could be adjusted are as follows:

Recording Audio Parameters: BufferSize - the size of a particular record audio buffer (for steady state record

audio anomalies in audio start up) NumberOfPreRecordBuffers - the number of pre-record buffers (for initial hardware
