Default Weird Question, Can't figure it out

I'm looking for a way to take an optical input from any device...most likely sound and read the code that the optics is sending. I need to be able to analyse the code comming in from some audio/optic source and manipulate it. If anyone knows if this is possible and how to do it and what I need, please let me know. Please e-mail me responses at cavedrummer@yahoo.com. Thanks for you help.

Cool "This is why they call me; RagePro..."

Sorry about that Eidolon. I just get irratated, when people Join the forum, do something like what you did, and never come back!!! We'd all benefit if we'd just READ THE RULES more often.

He's right. I have that program. There's a feature in there where you can actually change the way the audio is captured, as it comes in. Vary good stuff.

ok....manipulating an audio signal coming into your computer through a program like cooledit is just editing the audio signal...that doesn't mean it's optical which would be a beam...like an OPTICAL MOUSE...and all....you're not editing an optical signal....you're simply editing the audio signal coming in....maybe I'm reading what you phrased wrong.....but you're making it sound like you want to capture a radio transmission kind of deal and catch the waves going through the air and manipulate those
