[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 14.4.1, Package name: sox-14.4.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

sox translates sound samples between different file formats,
and performs various sound effects.

This release understands "raw" files in various binary formats,
raw textual data,
Sound Blaster .VOC files, IRCAM SoundFile files, SUN Sparcstation
.au files, mutant DEC .au files, Apple/SGI AIFF files,
CD-R (music CD format), Macintosh HCOM files, Sounder files,
NeXT .snd files, SUN ADPCM (compressed) .au files,
and Soundtool (DOS) files.

The sound effects include changing the sample rate, adding echo
delay lines, applying low-, high, and band-pass filtering,
reversing a sample in order to search for Satanic messages,
and the infamous Fender Vibro effect.

Required to run:
[graphics/png] [audio/flac] [audio/libsamplerate] [audio/libsndfile] [audio/libvorbis] [audio/libmad] [audio/gsm]

Changes 14.4.0:
* File formats:
  o Mention in man pages that WAV files support floating point encodings.
  o Add support for floating point encodings in AIFF-C files. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Pad WAV data chunk to an even number of bytes (as required by the
    specification). [3203418] (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Add optional MP2 write support with twolame library. (Paul Kelly)

* Audio device drivers:
  o Give pulseaudio driver higher priority than alsa or oss now that
    its proven stable and gives user more features; such as per app
    volume control. (cbagwell)
  o Fix bug when specifying OSX coreaudio device name.  Would only
    search for first 3 devices. (cbagwell)
  o Fix sox hangups are exit when using coreaudio. (cbagwell)
  o Improve buffering in coreaudio driver (Michael Chen)
  o Support enabling play/rec mode when user invokes sox as either
    play or play.exe on windows. (cbagwell)
  o Fix compile of sunaudio driver on OpenBSD (cbagwell)

* Effects:
  o Improvements to man pages for tempo effect.  Really made in 14.3.2.
    (Jim Harkins).

  o Fix to effects pipeline to let fade effect specify time from end of
    file again. (cbagwell and Thor Andreassen)
  o Fix man page default error for splice effect. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Enable support for --plot option on biquad and fir effects. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Effects chain can now be unlimited in length. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Fix newfile/restart effects when merging or mixing files. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Fix crashes in compand and mcompand effects. [3420893] (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Let the delay effect gracefully handle the special case that a delay can
    be more than the input length. [3055399] (Ulrich Klauer)
  o New hilbert and downsample effects. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Fix problem where fade would sometimes fail if specifying a fade-out
    immediately after a fade-in. (robs)

Update to 14.3.2:

sox-14.3.2	2011-02-27

File formats:

  o Add seek support to mp3 handler for speed improvements.  (Pavel Karneliuk)
  o Fix bug were WavPack header was not updated correctly when closing
    file.  Fixed libsox memory leak when closing WavPack files.
    (David Bryant)
  o Fix RIFF chunk length error when writing 24-bit files. (David Bryant)
  o 24-bit WAV files were leaving channel maps unassigned. Change to use
    common channel mappings based on channel count.  This allows to
    work more seemlessly with other apps such as WavPack and Foobar2000.
    (David Bryant)
  o Fix ffmpeg playback bug caused by alignment requirements on some platforms.
    Closes bug #3017690.  (Reuben Thomas).
  o Fix memory leak in ffmpeg. (Doug Cook)
  o Handle 0 length chunks in WAV files gracefully.  (Beat Jorg)
  o When skipping over chunks, account for word alignment. Helps
    with some Logic Pro generated files.  (D Lambley)
  o Fix incorrect MP3 file length determination with VBR & .5s initial
    silence.  (robs)

Audio device drivers:

  o Fix immediate segfault on OSX while attempting to record. (Adam Fritzler)
  o Fix segfault on OSX playback for some HW that gives smaller then
    requested buffers. (cbagwell)
  o Clean up system resource in coreaudio on close.  Allows running
    back-to-back open()/close()'s without exiting app first. (cbagwell)
  o Add support for 32-bit samples to OSS driver. (Eric Lammerts)
  o Add support for 24 and 32-bit samples to waveaudio (Win32) driver.
    (Doug Cook)
  o Support specifying audio device other than default on OSX (cbagwell)


  o F.R. [3051700] spectrogram -r for `raw' spectrogram, no legend.  (robs)
  o Fix -w option on stats effect. (Ronald Sprouse)
  o Fix segfault with some ladspa plugins (Thor Andreassen)
  o Optionally look for png.h in libpng directory to support OpenBSD
    packaging.  Helps enable spectrograph effect. (cbagwell)
  o libpng15 requires application to include zlib.h header file. (cbagwell)
    Add this to spectrograph effect. [3184238]
  o Enable LADSPA effects on all platforms without any external
    dependencies.  Mainly useful for Linux, Windows and OS X which have
    binaries readily available. (cbagwell)
  o Support specifying an absolute end location for trim effect instead
    only an offset from trim begin location. (Ulrich Klauer)
  o Fix regression where MP3 handler required libmad headers to be installed.
    (Samuli Suominen)
  o Allow dynamic loading of lame to be enabled even if lame header files
    are not installed.  (Doug Cook)

Other new features:

  o Soxi now reports duration of AMR files.  (robs)
  o Document the "multiple" combine option in man pages and in
    usage output (Ulrich Klauer).

  o Distribute msvc9 project files that had been in CVS only. (cbagwell)
  o Add msvc10 project files (also compatible with the Windows SDK 7.1).
    (Doug Cook)
  o cmake now compiles waveaudio driver under windows environment. (cbagwell)
