SoX

SoX

Sound eXchange (known as SoX), is a free cross-platform digital audio editor, particularly suited to making quick, simple edits and to batch processing.

SoX is the Swiss Army knife of sound processing tools: it can convert sound files between many different file formats & audio devices, and can apply many sound effects & transformations, as well as doing basic analysis and providing input to more capable analysis and plotting tools. As an added extra, SoX can play and record audio files on many common platforms.

SoX is often used to convert an audio file from one sampling rate to another rate (e.g. from DAT to CD rates). SoX's resampling algorithm is highly configurable.

SoX supports most common sound architectures. It also supports LADSPA plugins.

 SoX 14.4.2
