unfortunately no, you need an ewf file for this.

There have been some discussion about exposing ewf functionality as
audio object parameters. For instance this mail from 2004:

So basicly you could have:

sh> ecasound -i range,foo.wav,offset-sec,start-sec,length-sec,looping-toggle -o alsa

Thinking about this now, this seems superior to ewf-files in all respects.
OTOH, back when ewf-file support was added (sometime in 1999), the idea
was that the ewf-files would evolve to provide much more functionality.
But that didn't happen, and for currently functionality, just specifying
the params on command-line (or via ECI) seems much, much easier.
