Audio processing with PHP is possible using the PHP audio extension, which is a wrapper around the PortAudio library. With this extension, you can perform various audio processing tasks, such as playing audio files, recording audio, applying effects to audio, and more.

Here is an example of playing an audio file using the PHP audio extension:

// Load the audio extension
if (!extension_loaded(‘audio’)) {
dl(‘audio.’ . PHP_SHLIB_SUFFIX);

// Create a new audio stream
$stream = audio_stream_create();

// Open the audio file
$file = ‘path/to/audiofile.wav’;
audio_stream_open($stream, $file, ‘r’);

// Set the output format
$format = audio_stream_get_format($stream);
audio_format_set_channels($format, 2);
audio_format_set_sample_rate($format, 44100);
audio_stream_set_format($stream, $format);

// Start playback

// Read and play audio data
$bufferSize = 1024;
$buffer = audio_buffer_create($bufferSize, $format);
while (!audio_stream_eof($stream)) {
audio_stream_read($stream, $buffer, $bufferSize);

// Cleanup

This example opens an audio file, sets the output format to stereo 44100 Hz, starts playback, reads audio data into a buffer, and plays the buffer. The process continues until the end of the audio file is reached.

You can also perform other audio processing tasks with the PHP audio extension, such as recording audio, applying effects to audio, and manipulating audio data. The extension provides functions for these tasks, and the documentation for the extension can be found at:
