    audio-format Build Status unstable Greenkeeper badge

    Audio data format parser/detector/serializer.

    npm install audio-format

    obj = format.parse(string)

    Parse format properties from a string. Returns only guaranteed properties and does not try to guess them.

    format.parse('interleaved uint8 le stereo 44100')
    // {interleaved: true, type: 'uint8', endianness: 'le', channels: 2, sampleRate: 44100}
    format.parse('stereo audiobuffer 96000')
    // {channels: 2, type: 'audiobuffer', sampleRate: 96000, interleaved: false, endianness: 'le'}

    str = format.stringify(obj, defaults?)

    Get string identifying a format object. Optional defaults can indicate properties to skip if format value matches them.

    format.stringify({channels: 2, interleaved: false})
    // 'stereo planar'
        {type: 'float32', endianness: 'le', interleaved: false, channels: 2},
        {endianness: 'le', type: 'float32'}
    // 'stereo planar'
    format.stringify(new AudioBuffer(null, {length: 10}))
    // 'mono audiobuffer 44100'

    obj = format.detect(obj)

    Retrieve available format properties from an audio-like object.

    format.detect(new AudioBuffer(null, {length: 10, numberOfChannels: 2}))
    // {channels: 2, type: 'audiobuffer', sampleRate: 44100, endianness: 'le', interleaved: false}
    format.detect(new Uint8ClampedArray([0, 255, 0, 255]))
    // {type: 'uint8_clamped'}
    format.detect(ndarray([0,0,0,0], [2,2]))
    // {type: 'ndarray', interleaved: false, channels: 2}

    str = format.type(obj)

    Get type string identifying data container.

    format.type(new AudioBuffer(ctx, {length: 1024})) // 'audiobuffer'
    format.type(new Float32Array([-1, 1])) // 'float32'
    format.type(new Float32Array([-1, 1]).buffer) // 'arraybuffer'
    format.type(Array(100)) // 'array'
    format.type(Buffer.from([0, 1, ...])) // 'buffer'
    format.type(ndarray([0,0,0,0], [2,2])) // 'ndarray'
