SUMMARY: Sound Converters

Date: Wed Mar 02 1994 - 13:04:58 CST

Almost all respondents suggested sox. It is a PD utility that converts among
various sound formats. It is in version 7 now and runs on DOS, Unix (SysV and
BSD) and Amiga. Check with your favorite archie server to find out where to get
it (anonymous ftp). There is a "FAQ for the Internet Multicasting Service" that
John Strupp sent me. If you are interested in it, let me know and I will send
you a copy.

Someone also suggested ulaw for running on the mac. This is good because I use
a PC and Sun at work, and a mac at home, so I can use all of the tools and so
can those who I support. The original text of my question appears after the
list of helpful folk. Thank you to all.
