Digital Audio Processor v2.0

Dec 27, 1998, 00:44 (0 Talkback[s])

As posted to C.O.L.A.

Digital Audio Processor v2.0
- ----------------------------

For Silicon Graphics (IRIX 5.3), PC (Linux) and Sun (Solaris 2.5)

Copyright (c) 1997 Richard Kent

What is DAP ?
- -------------

DAP is a comprehensive audio sample editing and processing suite. DAP
currently supports AIFF, AIFF-C, WAV and RAW audio files, 8 or 16 bit
resolution and 1, 2 or 4 channels of audio data. Note however that
compressed AIFF-C files are not currently supported, only non-compressed
AIFF-C files.

The package itself offers comprehensive editing, playback and recording
facilities including full time stretch resampling, manual data editing,
detailed macro running facility and a (reasonably) complete DSP processing
suite. Note however that time stretching does not currently work on
Solaris - no idea why :(

What Is New In Version 2.0
- --------------------------

The main improvement is support for RAW and WAV audiofile formats. The
preferences and macro facilities have also been vastly improved and many
bugs fixed :)

Where Do I Get It ?
- -------------------

The central DAP repository is at http://www.cee.hw.ac.uk/~richardk where
you can get pre-compiled versions of DAP for Linux, Solaris and Irix. The
source code is also freely downloadable and contains C library
implementations of the SG audio and audiofile libraries for both Linux and
Sun (which are useful if you are trying to port other SG audio
applications to Linux or Sun). I have also heard that DAP has successfully
been compiled on Linux/Alpha but have no witnesses !!

What Does It Cost ?
- -------------------

Free, entirely - except for the cost of your download :)

Enjoy....
