dbcat - Send audio data to DB Fourier Synthesis daemon
tool provides a simple means to feed dbfsd
data. Both programs are part of the DBMix project, a digital audio mixing
takes input data from its standard input only, and is
therefore usually used in a pipe with some other sound generating program.
- Input data comprises of PCM-coded 8bit unsigned samples.
(Default: 16bit signed samples.)
- -c n
- Connect to channel n of dbfsd. (Default:
first channel available.)
- Print out debug messages to console. (Default: debugging
- Print summary of available options.
- Input data is a mono stream. (Default: interleaved stereo
- -r rate
- Input data is sampled at rate Hertz. (Default:
- Print version information. (Default: no version
- Produce an endless stream of blank audio data (silence).
Any input data is dropped. This mode provides a dummy source useful for
testing and debugging. (Default: pass on input data.)
- mpg321 -s test.mp3 | dbcat
- Sends a 16bit/44.1kHz stereo audio stream decoded from
test.mp3 off to dbfsd.
