Play Audio From File Enhanced

Play Audio From File enhanced with an appearance that follows the Apple Human Interface Guidelines, a volume control, stop function and time display. Command click on the file icon to see the file path of the audio file. The source code is more structuralized so it’s more clear how to initialize and use audio units.

In the future I will enhance Play Audio From File with an Audio Unit Stereo Mixer to add pan control and VU-meters.

Play Audio From File is full Cocoa and that means all classes end on .m.

The MVC design pattern is followed in Play Audio From File, there is a Controller and Model class.

The build requirements for this project are Mac OSX10.7 and XCode4.1

The runtime requirements are Mac OSX10.6 or later.

The application icon is from Vincent Garnier.
