3.1.5.4) What is SoundHack and how can I get it? (Electronic and Computer Music)

Subject: Soundfile header conversion program
To: Multiple recipients of list EMUSIC-L <EMUSIC-L@AUVM>

I just wrote a little program for the Mac that does Soundfile
header conversion. It translates between IRCAM, NeXT .snd, Sound
Designer II, AIFF and DSP Designer files. It will open any file as a
16-bit linear soundfile, if you want. I am making no attempt (at
least not yet) to support anything other than 16-bit linear. You can
also change things in the header like sample rate and number of
channels. This is my first program for the Mac, so it might have
bugs. If you want a copy, you can get it through ftp to "mills.EDU",
it is "ccm/SoundHac.hqx". Or I could mail it to you if you don't have
ftp. Please send bug reports!

SoundHack now reads and writes the following formats:

Sound Designer II; 	8 bit linear and 16 bit linear
AIFF; 			8 bit linear and 16 bit linear
NeXT/Sun; 		8 bit linear, 16 bit linear, mulaw and 32 bit float
IRCAM;			8 bit linear, 16 bit linear and 32 bit float
DSP Designer;		16 bit linear
Text;			text formatted with a fixed point number on each line.

It also has several signal processing modules added. These
are: soundfile convolution, binaural spatialization, the phase
vocoder, varispeed, ring modulation (part of the convolution module).
Currently I am working on a spectral dynamics module and a spectral
mutation processor. SoundHack runs only on Macs with FPUs. It is
still available through anonymous ftp to mills.EDU (144.91.4.6), in
directory ccm.
