What is FMOS Ex output format on Google Android?


What channel formats are supported? Mono? Stereo? 5.1? 7.1? anything else.

What sampling rates are supported?

What bit widths are supported?

Is there any inter-correlation among these specs?

Sorry, if these questions have been answered somewhere else. I was not able to find the answers.



Firstly I’d highly recommend using FMOD Studio / FMOD 5 for new Android development, it has much better latency handling and flexibility when it comes to decoupling the software mixer from the device requirements.

That being said, here are the details:

Using OpenSL output mode: Mono / Stereo, PCM16, sample rate is device dependent but standard 48KHz, 44.1KHz, 24KHz work.

Using AudioTrack output mode: Same as above except also support 5.1

The above values are the same for FMOD Studio, however we are tentatively planning to add 7.1 and float support in 1.08.
