3. Other useful sound utilities

This section has nothing to do with the actual playing of sound files. Rather, it is a collection of some sound utilities that one might find useful.

3.1 volume

This is a simple command line interface for controlling the volume (what else could it be?). It also has a separate program with a Tcl/Tk interface included in the package for controlling the volume and playing .au sound files. A very simple Tcl/Tk CD player is also included.

This is Freeware and it is written by Sam Lantinga (slouken@cs.ucdavis.edu).

It can be obtained from ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/sound/soundcard/volume-2.1.tar.gz.

3.2 Sound Studio

This is a Tcl/Tk application that supports playback, recording, and editing of digital sound using sox. It includes sox in the distribution to avoid compatibility problems.

This was written by Paul Sharpe and N. J. Bailey (N.J.Bailey@leeds.ac.uk). It may be freely used and redistributed if a postcard is sent.

It can be found at Sound Studio's home page.

3.3 Tickle Music

This beta Tcl/Tk program is a music file browser that allows you to play various sound formats as long as an appropriate program to play it is on your system. By default gmod is used for playing MOD files and mp for playing MIDI files (you can change the source to use other programs).

It is written and copyrighted by Shannon Hendrix (shendrix@pcs.cnu.edu or shendrix@escape.widomaker.com).

It can be obtained from ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/sound/players/tmusic-1.0.tar.gz.
