The following is a draft. It is at best incomplete and at worst completely broken. In any case, it is not an "official" Xiph spec/codec, so use with care.


Introduction

The idea of the Sydney audio API is to have a powerful, but easy to use cross-platform API for PCM audio capture and playback. So it would sit right on top of ALSA, pulseaudio, OSS, ... and abstract away all hardware-related complexity (e.g. having to check whether a card supports XYZ on ALSA before using it).

The API was named after the location of FOMS2007, which was held in Sydney, Australia.

Implementations

There is talk of merging these implementations. Alternatively, they can be considered as drop-in replacements for each other depending on platform needs.
