Subject: ecasound 2.3.1 released
From: Kai Vehmanen (

1. A short summary of changes

Ecasound's emacs mode, ecasound.el, has been updated to
version 0.8.3. Due to severe bugs found in the native Python
ECI implementation, the C implementation has been again set as
the default. Minor interoperability problems with older JACK
releases and Ecasound have been fixed. A bug that caused builds
against an external libreadline to fail, has been fixed.
Also recording problems with the WinTv 401Dbx and other
bt878-based devices have been fixed. This release is compatible
with the upcoming alsa-lib-1.0 releases.

2. What is Ecasound?

Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, recording and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. Ecasound supports a wide range of audio inputs, outputs and effect algorithms. Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console mode user-interface is included in the package.

Ecasound is licensed under the GPL. The Ecasound Control Interface (ECI) is licensed under the LGPL.
