Hello, I am trying to create a tone, then another tone using this code. It currently only plays one of them. Is there something missing or am i going about this wrong?

``````  for(int n = 0; n < num_samples; n++) //where n is the step |start of for loop
{
int fr = 523;          //Frequency A
data[n] = amp*sin(2*pi*fr*n/fs);
cout << n << "\t" << data <<"\n";
}     // | end of for loop

for(int n = 0; n < num_samples; n++) //where n is the step |start of for loop
{
int fre = 587;       //Frequency B
data[n] = amp*sin(2*pi*fre*n/fs);
cout << n << "\t" << data <<"\n";
}     // | end of for loop

write_wav_file(data, num_samples, fs, fp);
``````

What you are doing here is using the same array, which, in tern most likely segment and thus time out.

Try, something like the following:

But, even this would not work. Why won't it work? Simply because your structure has to be like this:

|one tone| -> -> -> |two tone|

If you take a look at the code sample that I give you, using vectors, I created 2 vectors which stored the two tones, then, having a separate vector which concatenated the data series. This is what you need to use.

My best advice would be to sit down and really think about this problem; what you're trying to do in C++ is not for the average user, you should have atleast some experience in arrays, and, data structure before you begin tackling this problem.

P.S. `num_samples` will need to be double the size of the array that you have.. If size is currently 512, it would be 512*512
