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!
