The xltwavplay program operates in client/server fashion with wavplay so that the GUI interface does not hang, and leaves the user in full point and click control. Now you can point and click play/record WAV files with simple conveniance. You can PAUSE the playing, or override the sampling rates to generate raised or lowered voices to amuse your dog. Supports 8 or 16 bit samples, Mono or Stereo. The traditional wavplay support for locking semaphores is included in xltwavplay to avoid clashing with wavplay being run from a separate cron job or other process. NOTE: You do not have to have X if you just want the wavplay/wavrec shell mode programs. (only install the wavplay RPM instead).
