ActionScript SoundDataEvent.position

… is measured in samples. Not bytes or mils.

So if you want to know how it relates to the ByteArray you’re working with, you need to multiply it by 4 (as each floating point sample requires 4 bytes). And if you want to convert it to mils, you need to divide by 44.1, the number of samples per millisecond.

I just thought I’d point it out because it doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the AS3 docs. Or the Flex docs. I checked this time 🙂

I expect you’re wondering why I’m discovering all this stuff. Watch this space 🙂
