soundgrab is designed to help you slice up a big long raw audio file.
Version: 1.0.1soundgrab is designed to help you slice up a big long raw audio file (by default 44.1 kHz 2 channel signed sixteen bit little endian) and save your favorite sections to other files. It does this by providing you with a cassette player like command line interface. Commands like ff , rw , jump can be used while the volume is being played or while it is stopped to move the player head around. The commands mark and name allow you to give names to sections between the mark and the current position of the player head (like emacs mark and point concept), and the export command exports the named sections to other files in wav, cdr (CD mastering), or raw format (or ogg or flac format if the appropriate encoder binaries are found on your system).
Operating System: Linux
The man page has a few more details and could be more useful, though most information is in the online help.
soundgrab is from the perl department of the Maximegalon museum of diseased imaginings. It needs a lot of other things in order to work:
perl5 or later
Term::ReadLine::Gnu and Time::HiRes from the comprehensive perl archive network (CPAN). Time::HiRes ships with the base perl distribution for perl version 5.8.0 and later. Both these are bundled in the below package for your convenience.
rawrec program. This is bundled in the below package for your convenience.
sox program. This is pretty standard and is certainly available as a package in whatever distribution you are using.
GNU readline4 library. Standard on most distros I hope.
Some command line utilities which are standard everywhere.
What's New in This Release:
· Support for dissection of Ogg format volumes.
· Code cleanup and removal of the dependency on rawrec/rawplay.
