Author:Joel K. Pettersson

saugns implements the SAU (Scriptable AUdio) language, and is a command-line parser, player, and WAV file writer for SAU scripts. It makes it easy to write script files which play sounds when ran. It's also possible to pipe audio data from it over stdout.

Currently most useful for generating tones, soundscapes, and simple timed sequences. Can be used tersely and simply, but it still lacks features that would make it useful as a language for music composition.

The SAU language currently provides these audio generators, which can be used and combined in any number.

  • 'R' (Random segments generator), several line types. Supports AM/RM, FM and PM.
  • 'W' (Wave oscillator), several wave types. Weakly anti-aliased. Supports AM/RM, FM and PM.
