SoX is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux, MacOS X, etc.) command line utility that can convert various formats of computer audio files in to other formats. It can also apply various effects to these sound files, and, as an added bonus, SoX can play and record audio files on most platforms.

Interactive Usage

After connecting to Stanage (see Establishing a SSH connection), start an interactive session with the following command:

srun --pty bash -i

The latest version of SoX (currently version 14.4.2) is made available with the command:

$ module load SoX/14.4.2-GCC-8.3.0

After this the SoX command can be run from the terminal prompt with the sox command.

Further documentation on the usage of SoX can be found at the following link:
