Sweep is an editor for sound files. It can edit various formats such as
.wav, .aiff and .au, and has multiple undo/redo levels and filters. It
is Free Software, available under the GNU General Public Licence. 

This release incorporates a new loadable plugin interface, support for
ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture [2]) 0.6.0, support for LADSPA
loadable effects modules, some new plugins, new Hungarian, Italian and
German translations, and documentation updates, including a new Plugin
Writers Guide [3].

LADSPA [4] is an effort amongst the Linux Audio Development community to
produce a standardised interface for audio processing plugins. A large
number of existing filter and effects plugins exist for LADSPA in the
Computer Music Toolkit [5], including high and low pass filters,
compressors, expanders and limiters. In order to gain maximal use of Sweep
please install this toolkit.

Thanks especially to Paul Barton-Davis, Nicolas Léveillé, Silvia Pfeiffer,
Gergely Nagy and Yuri Bongiorno for contributions to this release.
