Ecs files are basicly just sequences of ecasound command line arguments.
Ecasound's command-line argument parser is divided into two parts: global
and chainsetup-specific. While command-line arguments go through both
these parsers, words read from ecs files only go through the chainsetup

So to convert your example into a ecs file, you just need to drop
'ecasound', '-r' and all '\'.
But it's true that very little documentation exists about ecs. For
instance, the "GLOBAL" section in ecasound(1) man page is a pretty
comprehensive list of non-cs specific arguments, but there's no mention of
-r and -s (which are also global options)...
