       sfconvert - convert between various audio formats


       sfconvert infile outfile [ options ... ] [ output keywords ... ]


       The  sfconvert  tool  can be used to convert audio files from one audio format to another.
       The files' audio formats have to be supported by libaudiofile.


       The following keywords specify the format of the output sound file:

       byteorder e
              Desired endianness of output sample data. e may be one of big or little.

       channels n
              Number of output channels. n is 1 for mono, and 2 for stereo files.

       format f
              Audio format of output file. f has to be one of the  currently  supported  formats:
              aiff  (Audio  Interchange  File  Format), aifc (AIFF-C File Format), next (NeXT/Sun
              Format), wave (MS RIFF WAVE Format), bicsf (Berkeley/IRCAM/CARL Sound File Format),
              avr (Audio Visual Research File Format), iff (Amiga IFF/8SVX Sound File Format), or
              nist (NIST SPHERE File Format).

       integer n s
              Produce integer samples. n specifies the width of individual  samples  in  bits,  s
              yields  the  encoding  and  may  be  one of 2scomp (2's complement signed data), or
              unsigned (unsigned data). The integer and float options (see  below)  are  mutually

       float m
              Produce  floating  point  samples with a maximum amplitude of m (usually 1.0). This
              options may not be used together with option integer.
