A Comparison of Audio Frameworks for Teaching, Research, and Development

Document Thumbnail

This paper compares a range of audio frameworks for the support of teaching, research and the development of audio applications. The authors employ a range of metrics with which to compare the frameworks including: licensing terms, portability across different architectures, audio data-type support, efficiency of processing code, expressiveness, usability, and community activity. Conclusions are drawn that none of these frameworks score highly in all of these domains. This suggests that while there are already a large number of such frameworks there remain areas to be addressed. The authors suggest that this might be through the development of existing systems or the development of new frameworks to meet these needs.
