Yes, all audio processing is done in software. This is a GOOD thing.
A Motorola application note says "the MP3 decoder requires just 19MHz* on a ColdFireV2 with EMAC core." (*=worst case data, single cycle memory access)
This MP3 codec is available from Motorola on request. There is also a WMA decoder, but it requires a license from Microsoft so I think we should skip that and aim for Ogg Vorbis instead.
The license for the MP3 codec code says:
"Motorola grants to you, free of charge, the non-exclusive, non-transferable right
Looks pretty good.
