DESCRIPTIONThe 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.
- 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.)
- Print out debug messages to console. (Default: debugging disabled.)
- Print summary of available options.
- Audio input is a line-in source. (Default: input is a microphone source.) source.)
- Input data is a mono stream. (Default: interleaved stereo stream.)
- -r rate
- Input data is sampled at rate Hertz. (Default: 44100Hz.)
- Send output data to stdout. (Default: Send output to dbfsd.) dbfsd.
