Sweep 0.5.10a Development Release
---------------------------------

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.

This development release is available as a source tarball at:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/sweep/sweep-0.5.10a.tar.gz?download

New features in this release include vertical zoom with a draggable dB scale
and mouse wheel control, and some basic channel operations: Duplicate to
stereo/multichannel, Swap left and right, Remove left/right, Mix down to
mono, and Add/Remove channels.

This release also includes compile fixes for Solaris, and a bug fix for
first-time file 'save'. Note that an earlier 0.5.10 release contained a
compilation error, now fixed in 0.5.10a.

A new section for screenshots contributed by users was recently added to the
screenshot tour:

Sweep is designed to be intuitive and to give you full control. It includes
almost everything you would expect in a sample 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, MP3 and Speex 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.

development of this project.

enjoy :)
