Detailed Description

This type is part of the QtAudioEngine 1.0 module.

There are two ways to create SoundInstance objects. You can obtain it by calling newInstance method of a Sound:

import QtQuick 2.0
import QtAudioEngine 1.0
Rectangle {
    id:root
    color:"white"
    width: 300
    height: 500
    AudioEngine {
        id:audioengine
        AudioSample {
            name:"explosion01"
            source: "explosion-01.wav"
        }
        Sound {
            name:"explosion"
            PlayVariation {
                sample:"explosion01"
            }
        }
    }
    property variant soundEffect: audioengine.sounds["explosion"].newInstance();
    MouseArea {
        anchors.fill: parent
        onPressed: {
            root.soundEffect.play();
        }
    }
}

Or alternatively, you can explicitly define SoundInstance outside of AudioEngine for easier qml bindings:

import QtQuick 2.0
import QtAudioEngine 1.0
Rectangle {
    id:root
    color:"white"
    width: 300
    height: 500
    AudioEngine {
        id:audioengine
        AudioSample {
            name:"explosion01"
            source: "explosion-01.wav"
        }
        Sound {
            name:"explosion"
            PlayVariation {
                sample:"explosion01"
            }
        }
    }
    Item {
        id: animator
        x: 10 + observer.percent * 100
        y: 20 + observer.percent * 80
        property real percent: 0
        SequentialAnimation on percent {
            loops: Animation.Infinite
            running: true
            NumberAnimation {
            duration: 8000
            from: 0
            to: 1
            }
        }
    }
    SoundInstance {
        id:soundEffect
        engine:audioengine
        sound:"explosion"
        position:Qt.vector3d(animator.x, animator.y, 0);
    }
    MouseArea {
        anchors.fill: parent
        onPressed: {
            soundEffect.play();
        }
    }
}

Property Documentation

direction : vector3d

This property holds the current 3d direction.

engine : QtAudioEngine::AudioEngine

This property holds the reference to AudioEngine, must be set only once.

gain : vector3d

This property holds the gain adjustment which will be used to modulate the audio output level from this SoundInstance.

pitch : vector3d

This property holds the pitch adjustment which will be used to modulate the audio pitch from this SoundInstance.

position : vector3d

This property holds the current 3d position.

sound : string

This property specifies which Sound this SoundInstance will use. Unlike some properties in other types, this property can be changed dynamically.

state : enumeration

This property holds the current playback state. It can be one of:

Value Description
StopppedState The SoundInstance is not playing, and when playback begins next it will play from position zero.
PlayingState The SoundInstance is playing the media.
PausedState The SoundInstance is not playing, and when playback begins next it will play from the position that it was paused at.
velocity : vector3d

This property holds the current 3d velocity.
