sound = love.audio.newSource("pling.wav", "static") -- the "static" tells LÖVE to load the file into memory, good for short sound effects music = love.audio.newSource("techno.ogg") -- if "static" is omitted, LÖVE will stream the file from disk, good for longer music tracks sound:play() music:play()
LÖVE supports a lot of audio formats, thanks to the love.sound module, which handles all the decoding. Supported formats include:
- Ogg Vorbis
- and just about every tracker format you can think of - XM, MOD, and over twenty others.
Ogg Vorbis and 16-bit WAVE are the recommended formats. Others may have minor quirks. For example, the MP3 decoder may pad a few samples depending on what encoder was used. These issues come from the libraries LÖVE uses to decode the audio files and can't be fixed in LÖVE directly.
Static vs. Streaming
Keep in mind that, if you pass
love.audio.newSource "static" as a second argument, the sound file will be expanded into memory, so if you load a 5MB compressed .ogg file that way, it would consume ~50MB RAM when fully decompressed. Consider not using "static" in such cases.
If you omit the "static", the audio will be streamed from the file as it's played, something that saves a lot of memory when you're dealing with massive files.
To pause, stop, change volume, looping, pitch, etc., simply call the relevant method of a Source.
src1 = love.audio.newSource("bang.wav", "static") src2 = love.audio.newSource("bgm.mp3") src1:setVolume(0.9) -- 90% of ordinary volume src1:setPitch(0.5) -- one octave lower src2:setVolume(0.7) src1:play() src2:play()
Further details can be found in the Source documentation.
