The Android platform includes a JET engine that lets you add interactive playback of JET audio content in your applications. You can create JET content for interactive playback using the JetCreator authoring application that ships with the SDK. To play and manage JET content from your application, use the JetPlayer class.

Playing JET content

This section shows you how to write, set up and play JET content. For a description of JET concepts and instructions on how to use the JetCreator authoring tool, see the JetCreator User Manual. The tool is available on Windows, OS X, and Linux platforms (Linux does not support auditioning of imported assets like with the Windows and OS X versions).

Here's an example of how to set up JET playback from a .jet file stored on the SD card:

JetPlayer jetPlayer = JetPlayer.getJetPlayer();
byte segmentId = 0;

// queue segment 5, repeat once, use General MIDI, transpose by -1 octave
jetPlayer.queueJetSegment(5, -1, 1, -1, 0, segmentId++);
// queue segment 2
jetPlayer.queueJetSegment(2, -1, 0, 0, 0, segmentId++);;
The SDK includes an example application — JetBoy — that shows how to use JetPlayer to create an interactive music soundtrack in your game. It also illustrates how to use JET events to synchronize music and game logic. The application is located at JetBoy.
