High Level SDK for sound cards: PCXTools

PCXtools is an Application Programming Interface that manages Digigram sound cards functions

 

PCXtools also manages third-party sound cards via Virtual PCX, 

PCXtools is designed for Windows programmers who want to easily and efficiently develop professional software applications for radio automation. This range of high-level functions provides access to Digigram audio resources through programming languages such as Visual Basic, Delphi, and C/C++.  

At a glance

For rapid, efficient, and comprehensive development of most applications, PCXtools provides a Windows Dynamic Link Library (DLL) that offers easy access to driver features and functions such as audio file management, fade in/out calculation, event-driven functions, off-line format conversions. PCXtools allows programmers to spend more time concentrating on their applications.

Subscription to the High Level SDK grants a one year access to PCXtools documentation and associated technical support.
