In what way does meta data would be useful? Does it keep the

or is it to keep other kinds of information?

I think that .au also has a very simple header.
Do I need to add a .au header? Can sox add the header automatically?
What is a good way to create it manually?
The thing that confuses me is the endianness of the data.
Wave is little endian, while this page
says that AU is big-endian, or is it just the header?
Altough on the bottom of the page it says that the data is stored in
So, is it enough to copy the data using dd (minus the header), and add
a header file manually?
I tried splitting the file and reading it using sox and it says it
