  • PlayRange is an option for Play and related functions which specifies what range of sound amplitude levels should be included.
  • All amplitudes are scaled so that the amplitude levels to be included lie within the range that can be output.
  • Amplitude levels outside the range specified are clipped.
  • The possible settings for PlayRange are:
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.9.13.
  • See also: SampleDepth.

    This plays a steadily rising tone, scaling the amplitude levels.
