       glsweep - a program generating log sweep and inverse filter.


       glsweep [parameters] sweepfile inversefile

       Usage:  glsweep  rate  amplitude  hzstart  hzend duration silence leadin leadout sweepfile

       Example: glsweep 44100 0.5 10 21000 45 2 0.05 0.005 sweep.pcm inverse.pcm


       This manual page documents briefly the glsweep program.  This manual page was written  for
       the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       glsweep is program to perform accurate time aligned impulse response measurements.

       glsweep is based on the log sweep method for impulse response measurement, which is one of
       the most accurate, especially for acoustic measurements. This method is based on a special
       signal,  which  is  a logarithmic sinusoidal sweep, that need to be reproduced through the
       system under test, and an inverse filter, which, when  convolved  with  the  measured  log
       sweep, gives back the impulse response of the system.

       The  output  format  is the usual raw file with 32 bit IEEE floating point samples. If you
       need to convert the sweep generated using the example above to a 16 bit mono WAV file  you
       can use SoX with a command line like this one:

       sox -t f32 -r 44100 -c 1 sweep.pcm -t wav -c 1 sweep.wav


       rate:        reference sample rate
       amplitude:   sweep amplitude
       hzstart:     sweep start frequency
       hzend:       sweep end frequency
       duration:    sweep duration in seconds
       silence:     leading and trailing silence duration in seconds
       leadin:      leading window length as a fraction of duration
       leadout:     trailing window length as a fraction of duration
       sweepfile:   sweep file name
       inversefile: inverse sweep file name
