Listing 6 ends by scaling the gain factor by 8000 to produce a reasonable audio output level.

Compute the gain for the left and right speakers

Listing 7 examines the sign (positive or negative) of the current value of the sinusoidal function (based on the pulse frequency relative to the center frequency) and uses that information to compute gain factors that will turn one speaker on and turn the other speaker off.

Listing 7 . Compute the gain for the left and right speakers.
if(freq>= centerFreq){ leftGain = gain;rightGain = 0;//switch off the right channel }else{rightGain = gain; leftGain = 0;//switch off the left channel}//

Required audio data format

As you learned in an earlier module, given the values that we are using in the AudioFormatParameters01 object, the format requirements for monaural and stereo are shown below. (Note that in both cases, each audio value must be a signed 16-bit value decomposed into a pair of 8-bit bytes.)

Monaural, channels = 1

For mono, each successive pair of bytes in the melody array must contain one audio value. The element with the lower index must contain the most significant eightbits of the 16-bit audio value.

Stereo, channels = 2

For stereo, alternating pairs of bytes must each contain one audio value in the same byte order as for mono. One pair of bytes is routed to the left speakerand the other pair of bytes is routed to the right speaker (almost) simultaneously.

Within the four bytes, the pair with the lowest index is routed to the left speaker and the other pair is routed to the right speaker.

You learned how to use the putShort method belonging to an object of the ByteBuffer class to deposit the short data into the byte array in the earlier module titled Jbs2030-A Pure Sinusoidal Tone .

Deposit stereo audio data in the melody file

Listing 8 used the information from above to compute the current audio value of the pulse and to deposit it into two consecutive pairs of bytes in the melody array. Note that the putShort method is called twice, once for each channel. Note also that the values of leftGain and rightGain are used to scale each audio value so that it will be emitted from only one of the two stereo speakers.

Listing 8 . Deposit stereo audio data in the melody file.
byteBuffer.putShort((short)(leftGain*Math.sin(2*Math.PI*freq*time))); byteBuffer.putShort((short)(rightGain*Math.sin(2*Math.PI*freq*time)));}//end for loopreturn melody; }//end method getMelody//-------------------------------------------------------------------------// }//end class AudioGraphSinusoidal

Listing 8 returns a reference to the melody array when the for loop terminates.

Listing 8 also signals the end of the getMelody method and the end of the AudioGraphSinusoidal class.

Controlling stereo speaker output levels

This module demonstrates one way to control the output levels from the two speakers in a stereo melody. It is not necessary that one speaker be turnedcompletely off and the other speaker turned completely on as is the case here. The relativelevels of the audio outputs from the two speakers can be controlled by adjusting the relative values of the left and right gain values.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
