An Objective-C binding to OpenAL.


  • CoreAudio
  • AudioToolbox
  • AVFoundation(iPhone)
  • OpenAL

Sample Code

self.context = [ALContext context]; 
source = [ALSource sourceWithPath:pathToSoundFile]; // wav, caf, etc
[source play];

Buffer Caches

ALSource sourceWithPath: caches and reuses the ALBuffer it creates for a file. So a given sound file will only be loaded and decoded once per program run.


Threw this together for a small iPhone game I was working on. It seems to work, but is pretty basic. Patches appreciated.
