Sweep 0.5.12 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:


NEW in this release:

* an updated Italian translation from Yuri Bongiorno

* resample (sample rate conversion): change the sample rate of a
file, for example from CD format to DAT format, or to any arbitrary
sample rate. This requires Erik de Castro Lopo's newly released
libsamplerate, available from http://www.mega-nerd.com/SRC/

* preview cut: hear how the area around the selection will sound
after the selection is cut out, including the parts between
selection regions for multi-region selections.

* preroll to cursor: play one second of sound leading up to the
cursor; useful for hearing the cursor position without moving it.

Bugs were fixed in MP3 loading and pitched playback (using QWERTY keys).



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
development of this project.

enjoy :)
