DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  sfconvert  tool  can be used to convert audio files from one audio
       format to another.  The files' audio formats have to  be  supported  by

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following keywords specify the format of the output sound file:

       byteorder e
	      Desired endianness of output sample data. e may be one of big or

       channels n
	      Number of output channels. n is 1 for mono,  and	2  for	stereo

       format f
	      Audio  format  of  output file. f has to be one of the currently
	      supported formats: aiff (Audio Interchange  File	Format),  aifc
	      (AIFF-C File Format), next (NeXT/Sun Format), wave (MS RIFF WAVE
	      Format), or bics (Berkeley/IRCAM/CARL Sound File Format).

       integer n s
	      Produce integer samples. n specifies  the  width	of  individual
	      samples  in bits, s yields the encoding and may be one of 2scomp
	      (2's complement signed data), or unsigned (unsigned  data).  The
	      integer and float options (see below) are mutually exclusive.

       float m
	      Produce  floating  point	samples  with a maximum amplitude of m
	      (usually 1.0). This options may not be used together with option
