=head1 NAME Nama - Ecasound-based recorder/mixer =head1 DESCRIPTION B<Nama> is a text-based application for multitrack recording, mixing and mastering using the Ecasound audio engine developed by Kai Vehmanen. Features include tracks, buses, effects, presets, sends, inserts, marks and regions. Nama runs under JACK and ALSA audio frameworks, automatically detects LADSPA plugins, and supports Ladish Level 1 session handling. =head1 INSTALLATION =head2 Installing Nama and its Perl Dependencies from CPAN The following command will install Nama, automatically pulling in all Perl modules required to run Nama in text mode: PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 cpan Audio::Nama To use the GUI, you will need to install Tk: cpan Tk You may optionally install Audio::Ecasound to run Ecasound via libecasoundc: cpan Audio::Ecasound You can browse the sources or download a tarball via: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Audio-Nama =head2 Installing Nama from your distribution's package manager =head3 Debian (testing, unstable) You can install Nama from Debian by typing: apt-get install nama or aptitude nama To use Nama's GUI, you will also need to install Tk: apt-get install perl-tk =head3 Ubuntu (lucid, maverick) Use Ubuntu's package Add/Remove tool. =head3 Arch Linux =head2 Build from Source If you want to inspect or modify Nama's internals, you can pull the source code as follows: git clone git://github.com/bolangi/nama.git Consult the F<BUILD> file for build instructions. =head2 Non-Perl Dependencies (These dependencies are pulled in automatically if you install Nama in a Debian system.) The Ecasound audio processing libraries should be installed. Ecasound should be compiled with support for LADSPA, libsndfile, libsamplerate and JACK. Ecasound may be obtained from http://ecasound.seul.org/ecasound/ or as precompiled binary package for your Un*x distribution. The LADSPA SDK is required to autosense LADSPA plugins and scaling hints. It is available at: http://www.ladspa.org/ladspa_sdk/download.html In particular the utility program 'analyseplugin' must be installed in a directory in your execution PATH. Nama's mastering mode uses a number of LADSPA plugins. Defaults are specified in the configuration file .namarc.
