dbin - Connect sound card input to DB Fourier Synthesis daemon
The dbin tool allows to connect a sound card's input channel to dbfsd. Both dbin and dbfsd are part of the DBMix project, a digital audio mixing system. dbin is needed to mix in data from a microphone, or from an external audio device plugged into the line-in jack. The audio device used by dbin must support full-duplex operation. Also, this device must not be used for the master or cue output of dbfsd. Otherwise, dbin will output but an empty audio stream.
-8 Input data comprises of PCM-coded 8bit unsigned samples. (Default: 16bit signed samples.) -a dev Connect to audio device dev. (Default: /dev/dsp.) -c n Connect to channel n of dbfsd. (Default: first channel available.) -d Print out debug messages to console. (Default: debugging disabled.) -h Print summary of available options. -l Audio input is a line-in source. (Default: input is a microphone source.) source.) -m Input data is a mono stream. (Default: interleaved stereo stream.) -r rate Input data is sampled at rate Hertz. (Default: 44100Hz.) -s Send output data to stdout. (Default: Send output to dbfsd.) dbfsd.
