Clockwatch sound activated using php?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Id like to create a little stopwatch program. A start button will activate the stopwatch, a sound above a set decibel level (external microphone) will capture laptimes when the sound hits the required db level and log the data, this all needs to be live.

Is this possible to do using php and if so, can anyone point me in the right direction for the sound part please! lots of codes for stopwatches but the sound activation I cannot seem to find any info on.

 

Many thanks

It's unclear to me what exactly your goal is, but most likely the answer is no.  PHP doesn't really have the ability to play sounds or listen for sounds.

Try and clarify what your end goal is and maybe some better help could be provided.   For example, are you talking making a web page with a stop watch, or some CLI script?

You would need to involve javascript. You could do this almost all in javascript then do an ajax call to send the data to php. Here's a guide that shows how to listen for sound and make a reactive page. It should give you an idea of how to start.  https://hackernoon.com/creative-coding-using-the-microphone-to-make-sound-reactive-art-part1-164fd3d972f3

Thanks just looking to make a sound activated stopwatch rather than press a button

 

Will have a look at the java stuff, never dabbled with it before
