out

out — Writes audio data to an external device or stream.

Description

Writes audio data to an external device or stream, either from audio variables or from an audio array.

Syntax

out asig1[, asig2,....]
out aarray

Performance

Sends audio samples to an accumulating output buffer (created at the beginning of performance) which serves to collect the output of all active instruments before the sound is written to disk. There can be any number of these output units in an instrument.

The type (mono, stereo, quad, hex, or oct) should agree with nchnls. But as of version 3.50, Csound will attempt to change an incorrect opcode to agree with nchnls statement.

Examples

Here is an example of the out opcode. It uses the file out.csd.

Example 600. Example of the out opcode.

See the sections Real-time Audio and Command Line Flags for more information on using command line flags.
