JSQSystemSoundPlayer

Build Status Version Status license MIT codecov Platform Carthage compatible

A fancy Obj-C wrapper for Cocoa System Sound Services, for iOS and OS X.

About

This library is a light-weight component to play sound effects in your app. To determine your audio needs, see Best Practices for iOS Audio.

tl;dr

When your sole audio need is to play alerts and user-interface sound effects, use Core Audio’s System Sound Services.

Your sound files must be:

  • No longer than 30 seconds in duration
  • In linear PCM or IMA4 (IMA/ADPCM) format
  • Packaged in a .caf, .aif, or .wav file

If this does not fit your needs, then this library is not for you! See AVAudioPlayer, instead.

Usage

JSQSystemSoundPlayer *sharedPlayer = [JSQSystemSoundPlayer sharedPlayer];

// Play a built-in sound
[sharedPlayer playSoundWithSoundID:1000 // new mail sound
                           asAlert:YES
                        completion:^{
                            NSLog(@"Sound finished playing. Executing completion block...");
                        }];

// Play a sound from a file
[sharedPlayer playSoundWithFilename:@"Basso"
                      fileExtension:kJSQSystemSoundTypeAIF
                         completion:^{
                             NSLog(@"Sound finished playing. Executing completion block...");
