       dbin - Connect sound card input to DB Fourier Synthesis daemon


       dbin [options]


       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

       -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.)

       -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.
