I would like to use Macintosh format sound samples in Matlab. However, there is no "macsound-read" like command in matlab's DSP toolbox, and my macintosh does not sample using a sun-au or windows WAV format. I would really like to be able to sample a sound directly from a CD or microphone at 44.1kHz, and then use Matlab for filtering/manipulation of the sample.
Does anyone have any tried-and-true methods for sampling sound with a macintosh for matlab manipulation? Actually, a soundfile conversion program would be really handy. Can anyone out there recommend such software? I would prefer to stay in the shareware/freeware domain, but if you've had really great results with a more expensive package, please let me know!
