Re: Unix play command


Here are two other utilities which may be useful in lieu of 'play':

1. PlayBufferedSoundFile from Kurt Revis:

2. Tom Erbe's InstantPlayer:


p.s. I would highly recommend upgrading to 10.3 or 10.4 for any audio work

Practically every Unix system I've used since about 1990 sports a play
command that simply plays back a file without the need for a special
GUI app -- including Linux. Some of them even had record commands. I
find this very convenient, especially when working with shell scripts
and simple C programs. However, my OS X 10.1 Terminal app (which
emulates a Unix terminal) doesn't do it. Does anyone know if more
recent OS X systems do?
