After you develop your application using Audio Toolbox™ you can generate portable C/C++ source code, standalone executables, or standalone applications from your MATLAB® code or Simulink® model. With code generation, you can:
Run your algorithm on machines that do not have MATLAB or Simulink installed.
Speed up processing while you work in the MATLAB or Simulink environment.
Embed your algorithm in hardware.
Incorporate your algorithms into legacy code.
The following table compares deployment characteristics of MATLAB Compiler™ and MATLAB Coder™. Use this table to decide how to deploy your MATLAB code or Simulink model.
|Deployment Characteristic||Using MATLAB Compiler||Using MATLAB Coder|
|Output||Nonreadable shared libraries||Portable and readable C source code|
|Library dependency||MATLAB Runtime|
Library dependency only for audio I/O features: Run Audio I/O Features Outside MATLAB and Simulink
|Supported platforms for deployment||Windows®, Mac, and Linux®||Any platform that supports ANSI®/ISO® C/C++ code|
|Intellectual property protection||Packaged code is encrypted||Code is not encrypted. You can protect your IP by generating shared libraries instead of readable code|
|Algorithm acceleration||Same speed as MATLAB||Potentially faster, depending on the algorithm|
|MATLAB graphics||Supported||Not supported|
To deploy an audio plugin to a digital audio workstation, see Export a MATLAB Plugin to a DAW.
To deploy a System object™ audio plugin to Simulink, see Convert Audio Plugin System Objects to Simulink Blocks.
Introduces code generation support.
Set your system environment to use dynamic library files for deployed audio I/O System objects and blocks.
