Publisher description for Soundconverter
Soundconverter is a program to convert sound files from one format to another. My basic motivation for creating this program was that sox, the standard linux command-line program for doing this kind of thing, was Buggy, and also seemed to be falling into disrepair. Since I could no longer get sox to work properly on my system, I decided to write a tool to replace its broken functionality. Soundconverter still uses sox behind the scenes for some conversions, but for most conversions it uses other software. The syntax is uniform, no matter what formats you're converting between. For example, here's what you'd do to Convert WAV To MP3: soundconverter input.wav output.mp3 The following formats are supported: au, wav, mp3, ogg, FLAC, aac This program depends on the following Debian packages: sox vorbis-tools lame madplay transcode flac FAAC faad If some of these packages are not installed, then the program will still run, but the corresponding functionality will be lost.
