*** Ecawave - README                                                ***
=======================================================================
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 What is it?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ecawave is a simple graphical audio file editor. The user-interface is
based on Qt libraries, while almost all audio functionality is taken 
directly from ecasound libraries. As ecawave is designed for editing 
large audio files, all processing is done direct-to-disk. Simple 
waveform caching is used to speed-up file operations. Ecawave supports
all audio file formats and effect algorithms provided by ecasound
libraries. This includes OSS, ALSA, aRts, over 20 file formats, over 30
effect types, LADSPA plugins and multi-operator effect presets.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Installing 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

First of all, you should first try to use the binary-rpm release.
It's probably the easiest and the most straigthforward way to 
install this software. 

If you need to compile ecawave, the file 'INSTALL' contains detailed 
instructions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Documentation 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ecawave should be pretty easy and intuitive to use. There is,
however, some additional documentation: ecawave(1) man page and 
ecawave user's guide.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Requirements
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

To run ecawave, you need...:

- POSIX compliant UNIX system; tested with Linux 2.2.x, 2.4.x and glibc 2.x
- POSIX threads; tested with linuxthreads 0.7 (libpthread, comes with glibc)
- ecasound libraries
- qt 2.x runtime libraries
- for soundcard input/output: OSS, OSS/Lite or ALSA drivers
- for mp3 support, mpg123 (input) and lame (output) packages
- for tracker module support, mikmod package
- for .aiff and .au/.snd support, libaudiofile (SGI audio file) library

To compile ecawave, you also need...:

- ecasound development files
- qt 2.x development environment
- standard C++ build environment; tested with egcs 2.91.66 and gcc 2.95.2
  (STL and exceptions need to be supported)
- GNU make, automake and autoconf packages
