SWEEP, a sound wave editor, brought to you by Conrad Parker ----------------------------------------------------------- Sweep is an audio editor and live playback tool for GNU/Linux, BSD and compatible systems. It supports many music and voice formats including WAV, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis, Speex and MP3, with multichannel editing and LADSPA effects plugins. Inside lives a pesky little virtual stylus called Scrubby who enjoys mixing around in your files. Sweep is designed to be intuitive and to give you full control. It includes almost everything you would expect in a sound editor, and then some: * precise, vinyl like scrubbing * looped, reverse, and pitch-controlled playback * playback mixing of unlimited independent tracks * monitoring support for use with multiple audio devices * looped and reverse recording * internationalisation * multichannel and 32 bit floating point file support * Ogg Vorbis, MP3 and Speex compressed formats * sample rate conversion and channel operations * LADSPA 1.1 effects support * multiple views, discontinuous selections * easy keybindings, mouse wheel zooming * unlimited undo/redo with fully revertible edit history * multithreaded background processing * shaded peak/mean waveform rendering, multiple colour schemes Summary of library dependencies: -------------------------------- REQUIRED: * GTK+ 2.0, (version 2.4.0 or higher) standard in most distributions and available from: http://www.gtk.org/ * libsndfile-1.0.x, available from: http://www.zip.com.au/~erikd/libsndfile/ * Secret Rabbit Code, aka. libsamplerate, available from: http://www.mega-nerd.com/SRC/ OPTIONAL: * Ogg Vorbis libraries (high quality perceptual audio format): http://www.vorbis.com/ * libmad (MPEG audio loading), available from: http://www.underbit.com/products/mad/ * Speex library (an open speech compression format): http://www.speex.org/ See the file INSTALL for building instructions. Generally all that is required, after the above libraries have been installed, is: ./configure make make install If you are not sure what you need, simply run ./configure and it will probe your system and provide a reasonably useful summary. For information on enabling and disabling optional components, run ./configure --help Homepage -------- Detailed information and new releases of Sweep can be found at: http://sweep.sourceforge.net/ Mailing Lists ------------- There are four mailing lists related to sweep: sweep-announce which contains only announcements about new releases of sweep.
