       jack-stdin - write JACK audio data to stdin


       jack-stdin [OPTIONS] port1 [ port2 ...]


       jack-stdin reads raw audio data from standard-input and writes it to a JACK audio port.

       The  number  of  given ports detemine the number of audio channels that are used.  If more
       than one channel is given, the input audio-sample data needs to be interleaved.


       -b, --bitdepth BITS
              Specify the bit-depth of each sample. For integer-encoding this can be  16  or  24.
              The  default is 16.  This setting is only used for integer encoding: Floating-point
              samples will always be 32 bit wide.

       -d, --duration SEC
              Specify the time for which jack-stdin should run in seconds.  A value less  than  1
              means to run indefinitely. The default is 0 which reads until end-of-file.

       -e, --encoding FORMAT
              Set  the input format of the data: signed-integer, unsigned-integer, floating-point
              (default: signed)

       -f, --file FILENAME
              Read data from given file instead of standard-input.

       -h, --help
              Print a brief usage information

       -p, --prebuffer PERCENT
              Pre-fill the buffer before starting audio output to JACK  (default  50.0%).   NOTE:
              disable  pre-buffering  (-p  0)  or use a small buffer size to play back very short

       -L, --little-endian
              The input-data is in little-endian byte-order or native-byte-order float  (this  is
              the default)

       -B, --big-endian
              Interpret  input  audio  data  in  big-endian  byte-order or swap the byte-order of

       -q, --quiet
              Inhibit usual output.  This affects information and  buffer-overflow  warnings  but
              not setup-errors.

       -S, --bufsize SAMPLES
              Choose  the  internal buffer-size in samples. The default size is 65536.  The given
              value will be multiplied by the number of channels and bit-depth to get the size of
              the ring-buffer.  Note: the buffersize must be larger than JACK's period size.

            | sox -t raw -r 48k -e signed -b 16 -c 2 - \
                  -t raw -r 48k -e signed -b 16 -c 2 - \
               tremolo 5 100 \
            | ./jack-stdin system:playback_1 system:playback_2

         cat /dev/dsp \
            | jack-stdin system:playback_1 system:playback_2


       jack-stdin is not suitable to play-back files shorter than twice the jack-period size.
