Information about audio device
info = audiodevinfo returns information about the input and output audio devices on the system.
nDevices = audiodevinfo(IO) returns the number of input devices on the system if IO is 1, and returns the number of output devices on the system if IO is 0.
ID = audiodevinfo(IO,name) returns the device identifier of the input or output audio device identified by the device name, name. If no device is found with the specified name, then audiodevinfo returns an error.
Call audiodevinfo with no inputs to view information about the input and output audio devices on a system.
info = audiodevinfo
info = input: [1x2 struct] output: [1x3 struct]
audiodevinfo returns a structure containing two fields, input and output.
View the contents of the input field in the Variables editor.
The Variables editor displays the input audio device names, driver used, and device identifiers. The values on your system might differ from this example.
View the number of output audio devices on the system, using an IO value of 0 to indicate output.
nDevices = audiodevinfo(0)
nDevices = 3
This example shows three output devices, but your system might vary.
Check if the input audio device identified by the ID value, 0, supports a sample rate of 44100 hertz, with 16 bits per sample, and two channels.
support = audiodevinfo(1,0,44100,16,2)
support = 1
The input device supports the specified sample rate, number of bits and number of channels.
Input or output device, specified as 1 to indicate input, or 0 to indicate output.
Audio device identifier, specified as an integer. The device can be an input or output audio device.
Sample rate, in hertz, specified as a positive scalar.
Data Types: single | double
Number of bits per sample, specified as a scalar.
Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64
Number of audio channels, specified as 1 (mono) or 2 (stereo).
Name of the input or output audio device, specified as a string.
Data Types: char
Information about audio devices, returned as a structure array containing two fields, input and output. Each field is an array of structures, with each structure containing information about one of the audio input or output devices on the system. The individual device structure fields are:
Name — Name of the device, returned as a string.
DriverVersion — Name of the driver used to communicate with the device, returned as a string.
ID — Device identifier, returned as a scalar.
