NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundeditor - digital audio recorder/editor

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundeditor [ -display displayname	] [ filename ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundeditor provides a graphical interface	for recording, playing and
     editing AIFF format soundfiles. Features include:

     -	 Realtime audio	recording and playing

     -	 Tape recorder-style transport controls

     -	 Graphical audio waveform display

     -	 Cut & paste editing of	audio data

     -	 Fade-in and out, level, echo, pitch and reverse effects

     -	 Undo/redo for editing operations

     For more detailed instructions on using soundeditor, access the on-line
     help facility via the "Help" menu item on the right side of the main

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -display displayname
	   Specifies the X display to use.  If none is set, uses the value of
	   $DISPLAY.  If $DISPLAY isn't	set, uses ":0".	 Note that sound will
	   be played on	the host running soundeditor, not the redirected X

	   Specifies an	AIFF or	AIFF-C soundfile to load on start-up.  (All
	   files are saved in uncompressed AIFF	format,	however.)

	   Specifies that the program should run in the	foreground rather than
	   forking and running in the background (normal operation).

HARDWARE    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundeditor requires an SGI system	with an	Iris Audio Processor in	order
     to	audition sounds.  The program will run on systems with no audio
     hardware, but the record and play functions will be disabled.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Soundfiles	in formats other than AIFF or AIFF-C must be converted before
     they may be used within the current version of soundeditor. Use sfconvert
     or	soundfiler to accomplish the conversion.

     soundeditor saves all files in uncompressed AIFF format.  Mono, stereo or
     4-channel files are currently supported.  Sample bit widths may be	8, 16
     or	24 bits.

     soundeditor creates temporary files during	editing	in a directory
     specified by the environment variable TMPDIR.  Soundfiles can become
     quite large and it	may be necessary to set	TMPDIR to a directory on a
     disk drive	with enough free space.	 For example, a	stereo soundfile
     recorded at 44.1kHz will require approximately 10 megabytes of disk space
     per minute	of recording.

     soundeditor works in conjunction with apanel, the Audio Control Panel,
     where input source	and levels may be set.
