Oboe Samples

These samples demonstrate how to use the Oboe library:

  1. hello-oboe: creates an output (playback) stream and plays a sine wave when you tap the screen
  2. RhythmGame: A simple rhythm game where you copy the clap patterns you hear by tapping on the screen
  3. MegaDrone: A one hundred oscillator synthesizer, demonstrates low latency and CPU performance
  4. LiveEffect: loops audio from input stream to output stream to demonstrate duplex capability
