dbcat - Send audio data to DB Fourier Synthesis daemon
The dbcat tool provides a simple means to feed dbfsd with audio data.
Both programs are part of the DBMix project, a digital audio mixing
system. dbcat takes input data from its standard input only, and is
therefore usually used in a pipe with some other sound generating pro‐
-8 Input data comprises of PCM-coded 8bit unsigned samples.
(Default: 16bit signed samples.)
-c n Connect to channel n of dbfsd. (Default: first channel avail‐
-d Print out debug messages to console. (Default: debugging dis‐
-h Print summary of available options.
-m Input data is a mono stream. (Default: interleaved stereo
Input data is sampled at rate Hertz. (Default: 44100Hz.)
-v Print version information. (Default: no version information.)
-S Produce an endless stream of blank audio data (silence). Any
input data is dropped. This mode provides a dummy source useful
for testing and debugging. (Default: pass on input data.)
