Yes it works! I think it's bit rat the different! I forget things so I
remembering the sample rate is 88200 and bit rat first in that command
32 and to wav output 16! So I think all effecting etc go 32 bit and the
wav write 16bit! The Ecasound didn't work with 44100 sample rate I
tried! I don't remember what is the process convert from 32 bit to 16
bit but it seams to be less hard process that write the 32 bit wav for y
computer! My computer write also at same time a video stream so cpu
usage go about 80% all the time and the Ecasound crash with 32 bit file
format to IO problems! Also I don't do music at the moment and I storage
and handle sound streams in 44100 format what youtube use so I convert
with the Ecasound the 88200 smplerate to 44100 later!

I'm not exec this by prompt so I use a bash file where lines is

I didn't know the ecasound file format ecs and the information I didn't

DO THE ecs format handle any variables? In bash I have some by currency
marked $ !

The ecasound take about a second to threes seconds load up the progress!
It's long time and changed a lot! If I boot the computer the Ecasound
crash about three times to IO problems with the wav file write so I
patience start I few times before I can use it!

I'm very unstable and my mind changed everyday so I usually wanna change
the setup all the time! Now I wanna test a midi foot-controller with the
Ecasound! May I ask do you know how I get down to a file with a time
line all the midi changes?

I try to get my the Ecasound testing to better shape soon! Do anyone who
read this know how to setup cool vocal setup with the Ecasound?

When I have sometime and power to do testing the mystery difficulties
out I had before I'll let you know the things!

Thanks for everyone! Sorry for all the mess I'm making! You do all the
great work I know! I'll do my best for you! All the best for everybody!
