Instance Property


The audio engine’s singleton output audio node.


var outputNode: AVAudioOutputNode { get }


When this property is first accessed the audio engine creates a singleton on demand. Connect another audio node to the input of the output audio node, or obtain a mixer that is connected by default, using the mainMixerNode property.

The AVAudioSesssion instance and/or the availability of hardware features determine whether an app can perform output. Check the output format of output node (specifically, the hardware format) for a non-zero sample rate and channel count to see if output is enabled.
