Memory Consumption

Is the Audio Controller memory intensive?

For recording, I am using AEMixerBuffer and AEAudioFileWriter together hence I don't need the Audio Controller.
For playback, I am just simply playing back an audio file using AEAudioFilePlayer hooked into AudioController.

For my playback purposes, would it just be more memory efficient to use the high-level functions in AVAudioPlayer?


  • Not particularly, but you can pretty easily determine the footprint in Instruments, to see if it meets your requirements.
