Recording a mp3 from the FMOD master output for Unity

Hi everybody,

I’m developing a music creation game. For this I need to save the final “track” and export it to a server, so the player can download it later and listen to it.

So my Question is:
Can you take the master output from FMOD’s mixer and save/ export it to mp3/wav or any other sound format?
Another solution would be to route the FMOD output into Unity’s built-in Audio Mixer, but a previously asked question had a answer that this was not possible at that time. Maybe it is now?

Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!

You can, there is an example in fmod’s low level example folder, that takes the output of FMOD and writes it to an mp3.

Unfortunately the code is a pure mp3 output, meaning it does not go to the speakers, the output of the signal -only- goes to an mp3 file.

You can fix this though if you take the output_mp3 code, and transfer the logic to a custom DSP instead. This way you can ‘capture’ the audio through a custom DSP unit (see the new /examples/custom_dsp example, and write the PCM data to the mp3 encoder like the output_mp3 code does instead.
