audio_stuff - wrapper for aplaymidi, cdda2wav, cdrecord, lame, timidity etc.


$ audio_stuff


This script, which comes along with the Term::Clui Perl-module in its examples directory, integrates various open-source programs for handling Muscript, Midi, WAV, MP3, CDDA and DVD files into one ArrowKey-and-Return user-interface,


  burn files->DataCD  burn WAV->AudioCD     change Directory
  configure Timidity  connect MIDIports     consult Manual
  convert MIDI->MP3   convert MIDI->WAV     convert Muscript->MIDI
  copy audio CD       copy video DVD        create Makefile
  decode MP3->WAV     edit Muscript         encode WAV->MP2
  encode WAV->MP3     list Soundfont        play MIDI,WAV,MP3
  record AudioIn->WAV record Keyboard->MIDI rip AudioCD->WAV
  rip MP3CD->MP3      run a Bristol synth   run alsamixer
rip AudioCD->WAV and burn WAV->AudioCD

These features use cdda2wav or icedax and cdrecord and wodim to get files off AudioCDs into .wav format, or vice-versa.

copy video DVD

This feature uses mkisofs or genisoimage to get files off a Video DVD and growisofs to burn them onto an empty one.

rip MP3CD->MP3 and burn MP3->MP3CD

These features use cp and cdrecord or wodim to get files off MP3-CDs onto local hard-disk, or vice-versa.

encode WAV->MP3 and decode MP3->WAV

These features use lame to get files from .wav format into .mp3 format or vice-versa.

play WAV,MP3,MID

Depending on which file you select, this feature either uses mplayer or mpg123 to play a .mp3 file, or play or sndfile-play to play a .wav file to the headphones, or aplaymidi to send a .mid file to a Synthesiser.


When copying DVDs some big temporary files are created; if your /tmp is too small you can create a BIGTMP environment variable to use somewhere else, e.g.:

 export BIGTMP=/home/tmp
