I'm announcing a maintenance update of Nama[1], with
several fixes and improvements.

- envelope fades now work with transport seeking (fix in Ecasound 2.8.0)
- more intuitive control of buses
- reorganized source code
- documentation of variables and track subclasses

Nama is available as a Debian package[2], or as a
native perl distribution from CPAN.[3]

A blurb follows.

non-destructive editing, mixing and mastering using the
Ecasound audio engine developed by Kai Vehmanen.
Primarily text-based, it also has a simple Tk based GUI.
