Well at least it doesn’t allow me to tune my guitar using a microphone (as I was hoping the new features added to the Sound class might).
I’m currently away from my lovely Takamine acoustic guitar with built in tuner, and have a fairly dodgy classical to play with at the moment. As I don’t have my standalone guitar tuner either I started looking for applications for my phone that would allow me to tune the guitar. I found a few, but none seemed to actually do anything after installation, so I started wondering whether Flash 8, 9 or 10 might be able to do the job. I did find a reasonable flash tuner, but this didn’t make use of the microphone (like both my proper guitar tuners do). I then investigated the new Flash 10 player features only to be disappointed when I read the following (taken from kaourantin.net):
Unfortunately some features did not make it into Flash Player 10: Extracting audio data from a microphone and extracting audio from a NetStream object. We are aware that both features are highly desirable, but for various reasons it was not possible to make this happen in this release.
Adobe’s missed a good opportunity to integrate some very powerful audio capabilities into the Flash player… but I’m sure there’s a good reason for it… right?
So it’s back to tuning the good ‘ol fashion way I suppose!
