Abstract

A method is described to convert Audio Data Records. An Application Program Interface (API) is described to allow Personal Computer (PC) program products to record and playback digitized Audio data. The mechanism for this API is a buffer-at-a-time program interface. An audio message, when stored on disk, will take the form of a series of these buffer-contents. At record time, a series of these buffer-contents is output by the API. At playback time, this series of buffer-contents are input to the API. This is also known as an "L3P Audio Record." Audio Object Content Architecture (AOCA) is an architected way of encapsulating and encoding digitized audio data so that: a. It is independent of applications which use it to interchange audio data. b.
