The sox package

[ Tags: gpl, library, sound ] [ Propose Tags ]

This is a wrapper to Sox the Sound Exchanger which lets you play, write, read and convert audio signals in various formats, resolutions, and numbers of channels.

The functions call sox commands via the shell, that is, the sox and play executables must be installed and in the path to the executables must be set.

In the past this was part of the synthesizer package.

There is some ancient code, which allows interactive playback using the shell-pipe package on GHC-6.2, where no runInteractiveProcess was available.

Choose the new smaller, split-up base package.


Use ShellPipe package instead of process, preserved for historical reasons. Files are available in the darcs repository but currently not in the cabal package.
