digitalmars.D - Audio Library or Wrapper for use with GtkD?

Hi all,

After some initial research, I'm left wondering if there's a 
suitable audio library that could be (or is being) used by 
cross-platform GtkD applications. I've found a few mentions of 
people doing audio programming in D, but so far, no real 
meat-n-taters examples or API.

I did find a mention of 'mp3' and a couple others for 'audio' and 
'sound' in the GtkD wrapper code, but nothing concrete.

Mainly what I'm hoping to find is something that will allow audio 
playback that can be triggered from a callback, but if it also 
dips into manipulation of sound samples, start, stop, pause, 
rewind, etc. that would be a nice addition.

BindBC has SDL_mixer bindings which is probably the best D solution for playback ATM. https://github.com/BindBC/bindbc-sdl/blob/master/source/bindbc/sdl/mixer.d It supports playback of samples and music, suitable for video games. With recent SDL_mixer developments, you can hook a 32-bit float callback on the playback and channels alike, which allos for all kind of niceties.

Thanks, Guillaume. I'll give it a try.

GtkD includes a binding for Gstreamer (https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/) a small example of playing audio can be found here: https://github.com/gtkd-developers/GtkD/blob/master/demos/gstreamer/helloworld/gstreamer_helloworld.d -- Mike Wey
