Manages the state of some audio and midi i/o devices.
This class keeps tracks of a currently-selected audio device, through with which it continuously streams data from an audio callback, as well as one or more midi inputs.
The idea is that your application will create one global instance of this object, and let it take care of creating and deleting specific types of audio devices internally. So when the device is changed, your callbacks will just keep running without having to worry about this.
The manager can save and reload all of its device settings as XML, which makes it very easy for you to save and reload the audio setup of your application.
And to make it easy to let the user change its settings, there's a component to do just that - the AudioDeviceSelectorComponent class, which contains a set of device selection/sample-rate/latency controls.
The manager also acts as a handy hub for incoming midi messages, allowing a listener to register for messages from either a specific midi device, or from whatever the current default midi input device is. The listener then doesn't have to worry about re-registering with different midi devices if they are changed or deleted.
And yet another neat trick is that amount of CPU time being used is measured and available with the getCpuUsage() method.

|const XmlElement *||savedState,|
|const String &||preferredDefaultDeviceName =
|const AudioDeviceSetup *||preferredSetupOptions =
Opens a set of audio devices ready for use.
This will attempt to open either a default audio device, or one that was previously saved as XML.
numInputChannelsNeeded the maximum number of input channels your app would like to use (the actual number of channels opened may be less than the number requested) numOutputChannelsNeeded the maximum number of output channels your app would like to use (the actual number of channels opened may be less than the number requested) savedState either a previously-saved state that was produced by createStateXml(), or nullptr if you want the manager to choose the best device to open. selectDefaultDeviceOnFailure if true, then if the device specified in the XML fails to open, then a default device will be used instead. If false, then on failure, no device is opened. preferredDefaultDeviceName if this is not empty, and there's a device with this name, then that will be used as the default device (assuming that there wasn't one specified in the XML). The string can actually be a simple wildcard, containing "*" and "?" characters preferredSetupOptions if this is non-null, the structure will be used as the set of preferred settings when opening the device. If you use this parameter, the preferredDefaultDeviceName field will be ignored
- an error message if anything went wrong, or an empty string if it worked ok.
Referenced by StandalonePluginHolder::reloadAudioDeviceState().
Resets everything to a default device setup, clearing any stored settings.
Returns some XML representing the current state of the manager.
This stores the current device, its samplerate, block size, etc, and can be restored later with initialise().
Note that this can return a null pointer if no settings have been explicitly changed (i.e. if the device manager has just been left in its default state).

|void AudioDeviceManager::getAudioDeviceSetup||(||AudioDeviceSetup &||result||)|
Returns the current device properties that are in use.
- See also
|String AudioDeviceManager::setAudioDeviceSetup||(||const AudioDeviceSetup &||newSetup,|
Changes the current device or its settings.
If you want to change a device property, like the current sample rate or block size, you can call getAudioDeviceSetup() to retrieve the current settings, then tweak the appropriate fields in the AudioDeviceSetup structure, and pass it back into this method to apply the new settings.
newSetup the settings that you'd like to use treatAsChosenDevice if this is true and if the device opens correctly, these new settings will be taken as having been explicitly chosen by the user, and the next time createStateXml() is called, these settings will be returned. If it's false, then the device is treated as a temporary or default device, and a call to createStateXml() will return either the last settings that were made with treatAsChosenDevice as true, or the last XML settings that were passed into initialise().

Returns the currently-active audio device.
Returns the type of audio device currently in use.
- See also
Returns the currently active audio device type object.
Don't keep a copy of this pointer - it's owned by the device manager and could change at any time.
|void AudioDeviceManager::setCurrentAudioDeviceType||(||const String &||type,|
Changes the class of audio device being used.
This switches between, e.g. ASIO and DirectSound. On the Mac you probably won't ever call this because there's only one type: CoreAudio.
For a list of types, see getAvailableDeviceTypes().
Closes the currently-open device.
You can call restartLastAudioDevice() later to reopen it in the same state that it was just in.
Tries to reload the last audio device that was running.
Note that this only reloads the last device that was running before closeAudioDevice() was called - it doesn't reload any kind of saved-state, and can only be called after a device has been opened with SetAudioDevice().
If a device is already open, this call will do nothing.
|void AudioDeviceManager::addAudioCallback||(||AudioIODeviceCallback *||newCallback||)|
Registers an audio callback to be used.
The manager will redirect callbacks from whatever audio device is currently in use to all registered callback objects. If more than one callback is active, they will all be given the same input data, and their outputs will be summed.
If necessary, this method will invoke audioDeviceAboutToStart() on the callback object before returning.
To remove a callback, use removeAudioCallback().
|void AudioDeviceManager::removeAudioCallback||(||AudioIODeviceCallback *||callback||)|
Deregisters a previously added callback.
If necessary, this method will invoke audioDeviceStopped() on the callback object before returning.

Returns the average proportion of available CPU being spent inside the audio callbacks.
- A value between 0 and 1.0 to indicate the approximate proportion of CPU time spent in the callbacks.
|void AudioDeviceManager::setMidiInputEnabled||(||const String &||midiInputDeviceName,|
Enables or disables a midi input device.
The list of devices can be obtained with the MidiInput::getDevices() method.
Any incoming messages from enabled input devices will be forwarded on to all the listeners that have been registered with the addMidiInputCallback() method. They can either register for messages from a particular device, or from just the "default" midi input.
Routing the midi input via an AudioDeviceManager means that when a listener registers for the default midi input, this default device can be changed by the manager without the listeners having to know about it or re-register.
It also means that a listener can stay registered for a midi input that is disabled or not present, so that when the input is re-enabled, the listener will start receiving messages again.
|bool AudioDeviceManager::isMidiInputEnabled||(||const String &||midiInputDeviceName||)||const|
Returns true if a given midi input device is being used.
- See also
|void AudioDeviceManager::addMidiInputCallback||(||const String &||midiInputDeviceName,|
Registers a listener for callbacks when midi events arrive from a midi input.
The device name can be empty to indicate that it wants to receive all incoming events from all the enabled MIDI inputs. Or it can be the name of one of the MIDI input devices if it just wants the events from that device. (see MidiInput::getDevices() for the list of device names).
Only devices which are enabled (see the setMidiInputEnabled() method) will have their events forwarded on to listeners.
|void AudioDeviceManager::removeMidiInputCallback||(||const String &||midiInputDeviceName,|
Removes a listener that was previously registered with addMidiInputCallback().
|void AudioDeviceManager::setDefaultMidiOutput||(||const String &||deviceName||)|
Sets a midi output device to use as the default.
The list of devices can be obtained with the MidiOutput::getDevices() method.
The specified device will be opened automatically and can be retrieved with the getDefaultMidiOutput() method.
Returns the current default midi output device.
If no device has been selected, or the device can't be opened, this will return nullptr.
- See also
Returns a list of the types of device supported.
Creates a list of available types.
This will add a set of new AudioIODeviceType objects to the specified list, to represent each available types of device.
You can override this if your app needs to do something specific, like avoid using DirectSound devices, etc.
|void AudioDeviceManager::addAudioDeviceType||(||AudioIODeviceType *||newDeviceType||)|
Adds a new device type to the list of types.
The manager will take ownership of the object that is passed-in.
Plays a beep through the current audio device.
This is here to allow the audio setup UI panels to easily include a "test" button so that the user can check where the audio is coming from.
Turns on level-measuring.
When enabled, the device manager will measure the peak input level across all channels, and you can get this level by calling getCurrentInputLevel().
This is mainly intended for audio setup UI panels to use to create a mic level display, so that the user can check that they've selected the right device.
A simple filter is used to make the level decay smoothly, but this is only intended for giving rough feedback, and not for any kind of accurate measurement.
Returns the a lock that can be used to synchronise access to the audio callback.
Obviously while this is locked, you're blocking the audio thread from running, so it must only be used for very brief periods when absolutely necessary.
