Binary package “sox” in ubuntu intrepid
Swiss army knife of sound processing
SoX is a command line utility that can convert various formats of computer
audio files in to other formats. It can also apply various effects to these
sound files during the conversion. As an added bonus, SoX can play and record
audio files on several unix-style platforms.
SoX is able to handle formats like Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV, AIFF, VOC, SND, AU,
GSM and several more.
Any format support requires at least libsox-fmt-base. Some formats have their
own package e.g. Ogg Vorbis is provided by libsox-fmt-ogg.
SoX supports most common sound architectures i.e. Alsa, Libao and OSS
(provided by libsox-fmt-alsa, libsox-fmt-ao and libsox-fmt-oss). It also
supports LADSPA plugins.
