The Snack Sound Toolkit is designed to be used with a scripting
language.
Snack adds commands to play and record audio and supports in-memory
sound
objects, file based audio, and streaming audio, with background
audio processing. It handles fileformats such as WAV, MP3, AU, AIFF, and

NIST/Sphere.
Snack is extensible, new commands and sound file formats can be added
using the Snack C-library.
Snack also does sound visualization, e.g. waveforms and spectrograms.
The visualization canvas item types update in real-time and can output
postscript.

Snack works with Tcl8.0 - Tcl8.4 and Python 1.5.2-1.6
Platforms: Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, IRIX, NetBSD, Macintosh, and
Windows95/98/NT/2K.
