Ecatools are simple command line utils that do various audio processing tasks. Most of them support batch processing. They all use the ecasound engine (libecasound).
A simple command-line tool that plays input files using the default output specified in ~/.ecasoundrc. Note! You can abort ecaplay at any time by pressing Ctrl-C. If you are playing multiple files, this will stop the current file and begin playing the next one. If you want to abort playing immediately instead of skipping to the next file, press Ctrl-C twice in short succession (around one second).
A tool for converting a set of files to a common target format. This target format is given as the first command line argument, and its syntax is .ext.
A simple command-line tool for fixing DC-offset.
A simple command-line tool for normalizing sample volume. Finds out how much input file can be amplified without clipping and, if necessary, does the amplification.
Ecasignalview is meant for monitoring signal amplitude and peak statistics. It accepts the following options:
~/.ecasoundrc The default ecasound resource file. If the file doesn't exist, it is created with some default values. See ecasoundrc(5).
