DBMix - Digital Audio Mixing System
The DBMix system is able to combine sound from various sources into a
single audio stream. Think of it as a virtual DJ mixing desk. Mixing
uses a Fourier synthesis algorithm to maintain sound quality in the
The dbfsd daemon serves as DBMix’s backend--that’s where most of the
real synthesis work is done. Several clients allow to connect
different audio sources to the backend. First, there’s a DBMix output
plugin for XMMS. Several XMMS clients can be connected to dbfsd,
provided Allow multiple instances is selected in XMMS’s preferences.
Second, dbin links line-in, or microphone input from the sound card to
DBMix. And finally, there’s dbcat, a pretty generic tool that
redirects its standard input to a dbfsd channel.
Actual DJ work is done using the graphical frontend dbmixer. When
mixing between multiple XMMS client, dbplaylist might come in handy.
It provides a unified playlist for all the clients and partly serves as
a remote control.
For an in-depth description of each application, see its respective man
dbcat(1), dbfsd(1), dbin(1), dbmixer(1), dbplaylist(1), xmms(1).
