SND

SND, man page is a sound editor modeled loosely after Emacs and an old, sorely-missed PDP-10 sound editor named Dpysnd. It can accommodate any number of sounds each with any number of channels, and can be customized and extended using guile and Ruby. SND is started by typing the snd command.

To get started, go to the File menu, and open a sound file. To hear the sound, click the 'play' button. To see an fft, click the 'f' button on the left. The left mouse button is used for most pointing operations; the middle button pastes in the current selection; the right button brings up the SND pop up menu. Make sure you go through the help pull down menu to find more about all the features SND. In addition to this there is an enormous amount of information in the snd manual available online.

Start SND by typing:


 		 [cmn19] snd &         
in the command line.

If you have a sound you want to listen, you can type for instance,


 		 [cmn19]  snd /zap/dog.snd &
