= ruby/audio

This module and its classes are provided for the purpose of aiding in the
manipulation of audio data. The core is the Audio::Sound class, which is a
subclass of NArray. Also provided is the Audio::Soundfile class, which is a
wrapper around the wonderful libsndfile. 

== About This Release

This is the a bugfix release of the initial release of ruby/audio. The API can
be considered relatively stable, barring the discovery of fundamental design
flaws. More methods may be added, but backwards compatibility will be strived
for. However, if you rely on the existing API and would like to ensure
compatibility, drop me a line. If I know people are using it, I will be more
careful not to break things. 

*Please* send me feedback if you find a bug, find the API awkward, or just
like/hate it.

Next on my list is to wrap libsamplerate, adapt
ladspar[] to use Audio::Sound, and perhaps
wrap portaudio.
