while some of this does helps answering questions it poses some more. and
that's just the same with any question that i have been asking so far within
but thanks for your try.
: try "man sox" at a terminal,
: or "man what_ever_you_want_to_know_about"
: this will give you the manual page on an application.
: I'm not being smart, just thought this might help you in the future!
: SoX is a command line program that can convert most popular audio
: files to most other popular audio file formats.
: It can optionally change the audio sample data type and
: apply one or more sound effects to the file during this
: There are two types of audio files formats that SoX can
: work with. The first are self-describing file formats.
: These contain a header that completely describe the
: of the audio data that follows.
: The second type are headerless data, or sometimes called
: raw data. A user must pass enough information to SoX on
: the command line so that it knows what type of data it
