SampleRateConvertion error in plugin

7 views (last 30 days)
Hi
I´m trying to implement a x4 oversampling process but I´m having difficulties on how let the SampleRateConverter sytem object knows about sample rate used.
When compiling the example attached for plugin generation, the following error shows up: “Failed to compute constant value for nontunable property 'SampleRate'. In code generation, nontunable properties can only be assigned constant values.”
I'd really appreciate if someone can give me a hint on how fix/treat this.

Hi Pablo,
There are some limitations with codegen and the resampling objects. If you have a hard-coded ratio of 4, the easiest way around it might be to use a nominal sample rate, such as 48kHz. The added benefit is that avoid calls to getSampleRate will be faster.
function calculateSampleRates(plugin)
sampleRate = 48000; % use a nominal rate
plugin.Up4.InputSampleRate=sampleRate;
plugin.Up4.OutputSampleRate=4*sampleRate;
plugin.Down4.InputSampleRate=4*sampleRate;
plugin.Down4.OutputSampleRate=sampleRate;
end
The following challenge will be that the input of the sample rate converter will be of unknown size. You can get around that by looping over partitions of a maximum size (like 4096). Something like this might work for you:
% Replaces out = step(plugin.Down4,outdisto);
out = zeros(size(in));
for ii = 1:4096:size(in,1)
endIdx = min(ii+4095,size(in,1));
xin = outdisto(4*ii-3:4*endIdx,:);
assert(size(xin,1)<=4*4096); % Tell codegen xin won't be larger than 4x4096
out(ii:endIdx,:) = step(plugin.Down4,xin);
end

Replace all the "4*" by a constant named "OSF" (oversampling factor) and set it to 4, 8 or 16.
