yes, that's what we're saying. Of course, it depends on the kind of
analysis you want to do. But by writing only the analysis plugins that
take in audio in some raw form and transform it, you can use the whole
GStreamer framework for your input (and possibly signalling) part, and
concentrate on writing the analysis code.
In return, we can benefit by making your plugins available to all
Depending on what it is you want to do, it makes more sense to do it as
a plug-in, and there are examples of this as well.
