NAME

       ecamegapedal - real-time effect processor


SYNOPSIS

       ecamegapedal [options] [<input> <output>]


DESCRIPTION

       Ecamegapedal  is a real-time effect processor software with a graphical
       user interface for controlling the effect parameters. It is meant to be
       used  as a virtual guitar-fx or studio effect box. In addition to real-
       time operation, ecamegapedal also supports reading from and writing  to
       audio  files.  All audio object and effect plugin types provided by the
       ecasound libraries are supported. This includes ALSA, JACK, OSS,  aRts,
       over  20  file formats, over 30 effect types, LADSPA plugins and multi-
       operator effect presets. Ecamegapedal´s implementation is based on eca-
       sound and Qt libraries.


INTERFACE

       Keyboard control
              One design goal has been that ecamegapedal can be used without a
              mouse. In practise this means that  shortcuts  work  everywhere,
              and  all  pushbuttons and other controls have a textual descrip-
              tion.

              Ecamegapedal makes use of both  accelerator  keys  and  shortcut
              keys.  These are defined as follows:

              An  accelerator  key  is an alphanumeric key that can be pressed
              together with a Meta-key, usually Alt, to select an  item  which
              is  visible  on  the  screen. If an item has an accelerator key,
              this is shown by underlining that character.

              A shortcut key is a combination of Ctrl and  another  key.  When
              pressed  together they start an action from any of the menus. In
              the menu, the shortcut is printed after each item  so  that  the
              user can learn about the shortcuts by using the application.

              In  ecamegapedal,  transport  controls (start, stop) play can be
              accesses using shortcuts (ie. ctrl-t, ctrl-s, .. instead of alt-
              t, alt-s).
