deviceNameThe name of the device.


Get the position in samples of the recording.

If you pass a null or empty string for the device name then the default microphone will be used. You can get a list of available microphone devices from the devices property.

You can use this to control latency. If you want a 30ms latency, poll GetPosition() until 30ms (in samples) has gone and then start the audio.
