Mobile Jazz PlayThis


PlayThis is a library to play or loop sounds.

How To Get PlayThis

The easiest way to add PlayThis to your project is using CocoaPods. Add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'PlayThis', '~> 1.0'

Using PlayThis

Use the PTSoundManager class to manage and play sounds. First, register sounds the sounds with a unique key:

PTSoundManager *soundManager = [[PTSoundManager alloc] init];
[soundManager registerFilePath:[[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"MySound_1" ofType:@"mp3"] forKey:@"sound.1"];
[soundManager registerFilePath:[[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"MySound_2" ofType:@"mp3"] forKey:@"sound.2"];
[soundManager registerFilePath:[[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"MySound_3" ofType:@"mp3"] forKey:@"sound.3"];

Optionally, load into memory the sounds in order to play them fast. All sounds can be loaded at once or just some subset of them:

// Load all sounds
[soundManager prepareAllSounds];

// Load only the given sounds
[soundManager prepareSoundsWithKeys:@[@"sound.2", @"sound.3"]];

Finally, play or loop sounds:

// Play sound 1
[soundManager playSound:@"sound.1"];

// Loop sound 2
[soundManager loopSound:@"sound.2"];

// Stop playing sound 1
[soundManager stopSound:@"sound.1"];

// Stop sound 2 loop
[soundManager stopSound:@"sound.2"];

Use the methods -isPlayingSound: or -isLoopingSound: to check the status of a sound playback.
