Sweep 0.5.8 Development Release
-------------------------------

Sweep is a sound wave editor, and it is now also generally useful as a
flexible recording and playback tool. Inside lives a pesky little virtual
stylus called Scrubby who enjoys mixing around in your files.

This development release is available as a source tarball at:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/sweep/sweep-0.5.8.tar.gz?download

MP3 import is now supported (via libmad). Minor bugs have been fixed in
rendering of record position and playback mixing.

There is a new page of audio demos made with Sweep. These demonstrate the
sounds of Scrubby, a tool which allows vinyl-like manipulation of digital
audio:

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
* looped and reverse recording
* internationalisation
* multichannel and 32 bit floating point PCM file support
* support for Ogg Vorbis and MP3 compressed audio files
* 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

Sweep is Free Software, available under the GNU General Public License.

Thanks to Pixar Animation Studios and CSIRO Australia for supporting the
development of this project.

enjoy :)

Conrad.
