read_audio_stim

PURPOSE ^

Reads in the information for an mp3 audio stim file from the stimulus table.

SYNOPSIS ^

function [sig,fs,nbits,opts] = read_audio_stim(stimulus_id,varargin)

DESCRIPTION ^

 Reads in the information for an mp3 audio stim file from the stimulus table.

 [sig,fs,nbits,opts] = read_audio_stim(stimulus_id,N,mono,downsamp,mysql_conn_id)

 Accepts a stimulus_id, and optional parameters: N (the max. number of frames
 to read), mono (set to 1 to convert output to mono, 0 if no conversion), and
 downsamp, the downsampling factor

 The parameter values can either be passed into the function in the fixed
 order shown above, or alternatively, as tag/value pairs

 Optionally, a mysql connection ID (mysql_conn_id) can be passed
 for communicating with the database. If this is omitted, the
 function will still be able to connect with the database, but
 this connection will result in connection information printing on
 the matlab console each time the function is called.

 The output variables are the same as those for wavread: sig (the signal 
 vector or matrix), fs (the sampling rate), nbits (number of bits per sample),
 and opts (a format info string).

0023 % July 8, 2005 Original Version S.T.
0024 % Sept. 15, 2005 Modified by S.T. use mp3read matlab function instead of sox
0025 % Dec. 7, 2005 Mod. by S.T. read stims from nfs space rather than copy to localhost using scp
0026 % May 6, 2010 S.T. - added support for wav files. Since wavread doesn't support
0027 %                    downsampling, this function simply reports an error if downsampling was set
0028 %                    to a value other than one and a wav file was specified
0029 % 06/15/10 PJ - mysql_make_conn sanitization.  Input variable handling
