The /audio/loop Robot's Parameters

Name Type Default Description
preset String "mp3" Performs conversion using pre-configured settings. If you specify your own FFmpeg parameters using the Robot's ffmpeg parameter and you have not specified a preset, then the default mp3 preset is not applied. This is to prevent you from having to override each of the mp3 preset's values manually. For a list of audio presets, see audio presets.
bitrate Integer Auto Bit rate of the resulting audio file, in bits per second. If not specified will default to the bit rate of the input audio file
sample_rate Integer Auto Sample rate of the resulting audio file, in Hertz. If not specified will default to the sample rate of the input audio file
duration Float 60.0 Target duration for the whole process in seconds. The Robot will loop the input audio file for as long as this target duration is not reached yet.
