    node-microphone

    Information

    node-microphone is a module that use arecord ALSA tools on Linux or SoX on Windows & OSX to start and stop recording audio from a USB Microphone in PCM

    Notice

    Version 0.1.0 is incompatible with 0.0.x ! It is currently only tested with Windows (sox 14.4.2), will also be tested with Raspbian in the near future. As it uses ECMAScript 2015, it will probably not work with older Node versions (works with Node 5.10.0).

    For Windows, do not forget to add sox to your environment variables.

    Roadmap

    No official roadmap yet. If you experience issues, submit a PR and I will try to merge :-)

    Dependencies

    This library needs:

    • ALSA tools installed on the machine (sudo apt-get install alsa-utils) for Linux
    • SoX Tools installed on the machine for Windows or OSX

    Usage

    Simple example

    A simple example on how to use this module:

    let Mic = require('node-microphone');
    let mic = new Mic();
    let micStream = mic.startRecording();
    micStream.pipe( myWritableStream );
    setTimeout(() => {
        logger.info('stopped recording');
        mic.stopRecording();
    }, 3000);
    mic.on('info', (info) => {
    	console.log(info);
    });
    mic.on('error', (error) => {
    	console.log(error);
    });
    

    API

    new Class(options)

    Creates a new instance of the Microphone class. You can give an options object to the constructor with these parameters:

    Option Value Default
    endian 'big' or 'little' 'little'
    bitwidth 8, 16, 24 * 16
    encoding 'signed-integer' or 'unsigned-integer' 'signed-integer'
    rate 8000, 16000, 44100 * 16000
    channels 1, 2 * 1 (mono)
    device 'hw:0,0', 'plughw:1,0' *
    additionalParameters Array of raw string parameters to pass to spawn()

    * or any other value supported by arecord or sox.

    With sox, the device option is used as waveaudio driver.

    startRecording()

    Starts recording by creating a new child process with the options given to the constructor. Returns the recording PCM wave stream as Node stream.

    stopRecording();

    Stops the child process.

    events

    The Microphone class extends EventEmitter and emits info and error events. The simple example shows how to use them.
