Core Audio

From AudioLexic

Core Audio is a fairly low-level API for dealing with sound in Apple's Mac OS X operating system.

Apple's Core Audio documentation states that "in creating this new architecture on Mac OS X, Apple’s objective in the audio space has been twofold. The primary goal is to deliver a high-quality, superior audio experience for Macintosh users. The second objective reflects a shift in emphasis from developers having to establish their own audio and MIDI protocols in their applications to Apple moving ahead to assume responsibility for these services on the Macintosh platform."

[edit] History

It was introduced in Mac OS X 10.3.
