You will find listings of the source code used to create these melodies later in this module.

Play or file the melody

The code in Listing 4 uses the standard procedure to either play or file the melody that was created in Listing 3 .

Listing 4 . Play or file the melody.

An extremely important concept

While this may seem like a rather innocuous result, runtime polymorphism is an extremely important concept in object-oriented programming. One of theimportant applications of runtime polymorphism is the Java Collections Framework . A series of accessible modules that explain the framework begins with Java4010 : Getting Started with Java Collections .

Run the program

I encourage you to copy the code from Listing 5 through Listing 16 . Compile the code and execute it. Experiment with the code,making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that you can explain why your changes behave as they do.


This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.

Complete program listings

Complete listing of the twelve classes required by the program discussed in this module are provided below.

Listing 5 . The class named AudioGraphSinusoidal.

The frequencies of the// pulses are centered on middle-C (261.63 Hz).//The frequency deviation from middle-C versus time is based on a sinusoidal // function with a frequency of 0.5 Hz. Each pulse represents one point on// a graph of the sinusoid. Pulses with frequencies at or above middle-C are // delivered to the left speaker. Pulses with frequencies below middle-C are// delivered to the right speaker. //The audio output can be thought of as an audio representation of a graph// of a sinusoid. Pulses with frequencies above middle-C represent points // on the positive lobe of the sinusoid. Increasing pitch represents// increasing amplitude on the graph of the sinusoid. Pulses with // frequencies below middle-C can be thought of as representing points on// the negative lobe of the sinusoid. In this case, decreasing pitch // represents points on the sinusoid that are further from the horizontal// axis in the negative direction. Pulses with a frequency of middle-C can // be thought of as representing points on the horizontal axis with a value// of zero. //In order to eliminate pops and clicks caused by abrupt frequency changes// in the audio signal, the amplitude of each pulse is scaled by a // triangular (rooftop) function that has a value that is zero at both ends// and 1.0 in the center with a linear progression from the center to the // ends in both directions.//Four complete cycles of the 0.5 Hz sinusoid are represented by the 32 // pulses in the 8-second melody.byte[]getMelody(){ //Set channels to 2 for stereo overriding the default value of 1.audioParams.channels = 2; System.out.println("audioParams.channels = " + audioParams.channels);//Each channel requires two 8-bit bytes per 16-bit sample. int bytesPerSampPerChan = 2;//Override the default sampleRate of 16000.0F.
