(this is mostly a bugfix release, and new fade in/out)

also, if you can make it to linux.conf.au in sunny Perth, Western Australia
in January you'll be in for some loud Scrubby action and wild partying! I'm
excited about it already :)

best wishes for the holiday season, and a rocking new year :)


Sweep 0.5.13 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:



This release contains build fixes for NetBSD and cleanups by Erik de
Castro Lopo to fix preprocessor pasting warnings.

It also features new fade in and fade out filters.

Conrad will be presenting two sessions at linux.conf.au, January 22-25 2003
in Perth, Australia; a tutorial titled "Using Sweep: Fun with Scrubby", and
an overview of Sweep's internals and plugin development.



Some interesting audio recordings of Scrubby are at:


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
* sample rate conversion and channel operations
* 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
