NAME

ecasound-iam - ecasound interactive mode

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

Ecasound library contains an interpreter module that understands a set of commands aimed at controlling various library services. This is called the ecasound interactive mode (EIAM). All programs linked to ecasound library can use this facility.

ECI API and return types

A special case of interactive mode use is ecasound\(cqs control interface (ECI), which is a small library providing easy access to the interactive mode commands from outside of libecasound. When issuing inter commands using the control interface, it\(cqs possible that commands also return information. Currently supported return value types are: string [s], list of strings [S] (elements separated by commas; escaped if necessary), integer [i], long integer [li] and floating-point number [f]. These definitions are used throughout this document. Commands that return nothing (void) are marked with [-]. Additionally, return type [e] marks an error condition. When an interactive mode command results in an error, an error string explaining the condition is returned.

Limitations related to real-time control and modifications

It\(cqs not possible to use all interactive mode commands to modify and control objects that belong to a connected chainsetup. Ecasound will automatically disconnect (and later try to reconnect) the chainsetup in case these commands are received while connected. Commands that have this limitation are:

cs-remove, cs-set-length, cs-set-length-samples, cs-toggle-loop, cs-set-param, cs-option, c-add, c-remove, c-rename, c-clear, ai-add, ai-remove, ai-attach, ai-forward, ai-rewind, ai-set-position, ai-set-position-samples, ao-add, ao-add-default, ao-remove, ao-attach, ao-forward, ao-rewind, ao-set-position, ao-set-position-samples.

The following commands may be used on with a connected chainsetup, but they require pausing the engine temporarily (if running) and this can cause audible gaps to playback and recording. In practise this means it is currently not possible to add or remove chain operators in a gapless/seamless fashion. The affected commands:

cop-add, ctrl-add,

The following commands can be used on a connected chainsetup and when the engine is running (not a complete list but at least these commands are supported):

cop-set, copp-set, ctrlp-set, c-bypass, c-muting, setpos, cs-set-position, *-describe *-deselect, *-get, *-list, *-register *-select, *-selected, *-status, dump-*, int-*, jack-*, map-*

GENERAL

quit, q Quit ecasound session. What this means in practice depends on the client implementation. In ecasound interactive mode, \(cqquit\(cq terminates the ecasound process. When sent over ecasound server connection (aka NetECI), \(cqquit\(cq terminates the active network connection, but does not terminate the ecasound server process. [-]
start, t Processing is started (play). Error string is return if any errors upon startup are encountered. [e]
stop, s Stop processing. [-]
stop-sync, s Stop processing with a blocking call (do not return until engine has actually stopped). [-]
run Like \(cqstart\(cq but blocks until processing is finished. Error string is return if any errors upon startup, or during process, are encountered. [e]
debug \(cqdebug-level\(cq Set debug level to \(cqdebug-level\(cq. Notice that client programs can reimplement the debug routines. [-]

resource-file \(cqpath-to-file\(cq Overrides the global and user resource files. Does not affect already created objects. This command is equivalent to \(cq-R\(cq ecasound option (see ecasound (1) man page).
-prefix:arg1,...,argN Equivalent to issuing \(cqcs-option -prefix:arg1,...,argN). See documentation for \(cqcs-option\(cq.
help\(cq, \(cqh\(cq Help! [-]

GLOBAL

engine-status Returns a string describing the engine status (running, stopped, finished, error, not ready). See also cs-status. [s]
engine-launch Starts the real-time engine. Engine will execute the currently connected chainsetup (see \(cqcs-connect). This action does not yet start actual processing (see start and stop). When ecasound is used as a JACK client, issuing engine-launch makes ecasound an active JACK client (i.e. ecasound\(cqs ports can be connected to other JACK clients). [-]
engine-halt Stops the engine. Does not disconnect the chainsetup that was running. See also cs-disconnet and stop. When ecasound is used as a JACK client, engine-halt will cause ecasound to become a deactivated client (all JACK connections are torn down). [-]

CHAINSETUPS

Chainsetup is the central data object. All other objects (inputs, outputs, chains, etc) are connected to some chainsetup. There can be many chainsetups but only one can be connected. Similarly only one chainsetup can be selected. If not otherwise specified operations are done on the selected chainsetup. Some operations also require that selected chainsetup is not connected.
cs-add \(cqname\(cq Adds a new chainsetup with name \(cqname\(cq. \(cqname\(cq is now the selected chainsetup. [-]
cs-remove Removes currently selected chainsetup. [-]
cs-list Returns a list of all chainsetups. [S]
cs-select \(cqname\(cq Selects chainsetup \(cqname\(cq. [-]
cs-selected Returns the name of currently selected chainsetup. [s]
cs-index-select \(cqcs_index\(cq, cs-iselect \(cqcs_index\(cq Selects a chainsetup based on a short index string. Chainsetup names can be rather long. This command can be used to avoid typing these long names. \(cqcs_index\(cq is an integer value, where \(cq1\(cq refers to the first audio input/output. You can use \(cqcs-list\(cq and \(cqcs-status\(cq to get a full list of currently available chainsetups. [-]
cs-load \(cqfilename\(cq Adds a new chainsetup by loading it from file \(cqfilename\(cq. \(cqfilename\(cq is now the selected chainsetup. [-]
cs-save Saves the currently selected chainsetup to file. If chainsetup was loaded from a file, the saved version will replace the original. If it doesn\(cqt have a default filename, it\(cqs saved to \(dqchainsetup_name.ecs\(dq. [-]
cs-save-as \(cqfilename\(cq Saves currently selected chainsetup to file \(cqfilename\(cq. [-]
cs-edit Currently selected chainsetup is saved to a temporary file. This file is loaded to an external editor (see ecasoundrc (5)). After editing, the chainsetup is loaded back to ecasound. [-]
cs-is-valid Whether currently selected chainsetup is valid (=can be connected)? [i]
cs-connect Connect currently selected chainsetup to engine. When connecting, all resources (e.g. files, soundcard devices, external programs) needed to execute the chainsetup are reserved. Only one chainsetup can be connected at a time. Error string is returned if connection fails (for instance due to error in allocating the resources). [e]
cs-disconnect Disconnect currently connected chainsetup. This action will free all external resources needed by the chainsetup. [-]
cs-connected Returns the name of currently connected chainsetup. [s]
cs-rewind \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, rewind \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, rw \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq Rewinds the current chainsetup position by \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq seconds. Position of all inputs and outputs attached to the selected chainsetup is also affected. [-]
cs-forward \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, forward \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, fw \(cqttime-in-seconds\(cq The current chainsetup position is forwarded by \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq seconds. Position of all inputs and outputs attached to the selected chainsetup is also affected. [-]
cs-set-position \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, cs-setpos \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, setpos \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq, set-position \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq Sets the chainsetup position to \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq seconds from the beginning. Position of all inputs and outputs attached to the selected chainsetup is also affected. [-]
cs-set-position-samples \(cqtime-in-samples\(cq Sets the chainsetup position to \(cqtime-in-samples\(cq samples from the beginning. Position of all inputs and outputs attached to the selected chainsetup is also affected. [-]
cs-get-position, cs-getpos, getpos, get-position Returns the current chainsetup position in seconds. [f]
cs-get-position-samples Returns the current chainsetup position in samples. [li]
cs-get-length, get-length Returns the chainsetup length in seconds (if known). [f]
cs-get-length-samples, get-length-samples Returns the chainsetup length in samples (if known). [li]
cs-set-length \(cqseconds\(cq Sets processing time in seconds (doesn\(cqt have to be an integer value). A special-case value of \(cq-1\(cq will set the chainsetup length according to the longest input object. [-]
cs-set-length-samples \(cqsamples\(cq Sets processing time in samples. [-]
cs-toggle-loop Toggle looping. When processing is finished, engine will start again from the initial position. It\(cqs not always possible to enable looping (for instance all inputs and outputs have infinite length and chainsetup length is not explicitly set with \(cqcs-set-length\(cq). [-]
cs-set-param Interpret general chainsetup parameters like for example \(dq-b\(dq (buffersize), \(dq-n\(dq (name), etc. See ecasound (1) for more info. [-]
cs-set-audio-format \(cqbits,channels,sample_rate\(cq Set the default sample parameters for currently selected chainsetup. For example cd-quality audio would be \(dq16,2,44100\(dq. This does the same as command-line argument \(dq-f\(dq (see ecasound (1)). [-]
cs-status, status, st Prints out status information about available chainsetup. Detailed information is printed out for connected (=available for running) nd selected (=available for editing) chainsetups. Other chainsetups are listed, but further details are suppressed. To get full details of a specific chainsetup, select it with \(cqcs-select\(cq or \(cqcs-iselect\(cq, and then issue \(cqcs-select\(cq. [s]
cs-option \(cq-prefix:arg1,...,argN\(cq One powerful feature of the interactive-mode is that it provides full access to ecasound\(cqs command-line syntax. For instance, command \(dqcs-option -efb:400,200\(dq means that a bandpass filter is added to the currently selected chain, with initial parameters 400 (center frequency) and 200 (width in Hz).
Note that session level options (such as setting debug level) can not be used with \(cqcs-option\(cq (i.e. only options that modify chainsetups).
Note! Ecasound interactive mode implicitly interprets all strings beginning with a \(cq-\(cq as \(dqcs-option string\(dq.

CHAINS

Chain is a simple signal flow abstraction. Every chain has one input and one output. All chain operators and their controllers are attached to chains. Chains can be muted, unmuted and be bypassed. If not otherwise stated, all operations are done to currently selected chainsetup.
c-add \(cqcname1,...,cnameN\(cq Adds a set of chains. Added chains are automatically selected. Note that commas in chain names are not allowed. [-]
c-remove Removes selected chains. [-]
c-list Returns a list of all chains. [S]
c-select \(cqcname1,...,cnameN\(cq Selects chains. Other chains are automatically deselected. [-]
c-index-select \(cqindex1,...,indexN\(cq, c-iselect \(cqindex1,...,indexN\(cq Selects a set of chains based on the list of indixes. Each index is an integer value, where \(cq1\(cq refers to the first chain. You can use \(cqc-list\(cq and \(cqc-status\(cq to get a full list of currently available chains. [-]
c-select-all Selects all chains. [-]
c-select-add \(cqcname1,...,cnameN\(cq Selects more chains. [-]
c-deselect \(cqcname1,...,cnameN\(cq Deselects chains. [-]
c-selected Returns a list of selected chains. [S]
c-clear Clear selected chains by removing all chain operators and controllers. Doesn\(cqt change how chains are connected to inputs and outputs. [-]
c-rename \(cqnew_name\(cq Renames the selected chain. When using this command, exactly one chain must be selected. [-]
c-mute <on|off|toggle> Set the mute state of the currently selected chain. When chain is muted, it will only output silence.
The command takes a single parameter: \(dqon\(dq -> chain is muted, \(dqoff\(dq -> not muted, and \(dqtoggle\(dq -> change the muting state. If parameter is omitted, \(dqtoggle\(dq is assumed (muting is either enabled or disabled, depending on previous state).
Control of chain and chain operator muting states is independent. If \(dqc-mute off\(dq is executed, the states of individual cop-bypass commands will take effect. If chain is muted, the chain will output silence irrespective of the individual chain operator muting state. [-]
c-bypass <on|off|toggle> Set the bypass state of the currently selected chain. When chain is bypassed, sample data is passed through unprocessed (all chain operators are disabled for the given chain).
The command takes a single parameter: \(dqon\(dq -> chain is bypassed, \(dqoff\(dq -> no bypass, and \(dqtoggle\(dq -> change the bypass state. If parameter is omitted, \(dqtoggle\(dq is assumed (bypass is either enabled or disabled, depending on previous state).
Control of chain and chain operator bypass states is independent. If chain bypass is disabled, the states of individual cop-bypass commands will take effect. If chain is bypassed, all operators are bypassed independetly of their cop-bypass state. [-]
c-status, cs Print status info about all chains. [s]
c-is-bypassed Returns true if selected chain is currently bypassed (none of the chain operators are run). See \(cqc-bypass\(cq. [i]
c-is-mute Returns true if selected chain is currently muted (outputs silence as its output). See \(cqc-mute\(cq. [i]

AUDIO INPUT/OUTPUT OBJECTS

If not otherwise stated, all operations are done to currently selected object. All commands with ai- prefix operate on audio inputs, while commands with ao- operate on outputs.
ai-add \(cqinput_format_string\(cq Adds a new input object. See ecasound (1) man page for more info about the argument format (\(cq-i\(cq option). Note on syntax: if any of the parameters (such as a filename) contains commas, the parameter should be enclosed in double-quotes. [-]
ao-add \(cqoutput_format_string\(cq Adds a new output object. See ecasound (1) man page for more info about the argument format (\(cq-o\(cq option). If argument is omitted, a default output device is added (see ecasoundrc (5)). Note on syntax: if any of the parameters (such as a filename) contains commas, the parameter should be enclosed in double-quotes. [-]
ao-add-default Adds the default output device (see ecasoundrc (5)). [-]
ai-describe, ao-describe Returns a Ecasound Option Syntax (EOS) compliant string describing the input/output. See the Ecasound User\(cqs Guide for more information about EOS. This command was introduced in ecasound 2.4.4. [s]
ai-select \(cqaobject_name\(cq, ao-select \(cqaobject_name\(cq Selects an audio object. \(cqaobject_name\(cq refers to the string used when creating the object (the first argument given to ai-add/ao-add). Note that as a important difference to ai-add/ao-add, one should not enclose the object name in double quotes for ai-select/ao-select. In the case a chainsetup contains multiple inputs, or outputs, with identical name, \(cqai-select\(cq and \(cqao-select\(cq will select the first matching instance. In order to select a specific instance, the \(cqai-iselect\(cq and \(cqao-iselect\(cq commands need to be used. [-]
ai-index-select \(cqaobject_index\(cq, ai-iselect \(cqaobject_index\(cq, ao-index-select \(cqaobject_index\(cq, ao-iselect \(cqaobject_index\(cq Select some audio object based on a short index string. Especially file names can be rather long. This command can be used to avoid typing these long names when selecting audio objects. \(cqaobject_index\(cq is an integer value, where \(cq1\(cq refers to the first audio input/output. You can use \(cqai-list\(cq and \(cqao-list\(cq to get a full list of currently available inputs/outputs. [-]
ai-selected, ao-selected Returns the name of the currently selected audio object. [s]
ai-attach, ao-attach Attaches the currently selected audio object to all selected chains. [-]
ai-remove, ao-remove Removes the currently selected audio object from the chainsetup. [-]
ai-forward \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ai-fw \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ao-forward \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ao-fw \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq Selected audio object is forwarded by \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq seconds. Time should be given as a floating point value (eg. 0.001 is the same as 1ms). [-]
ai-rewind \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ai-rw \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ao-rewind \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ao-rw \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq Selected audio object is rewinded by \(cqtime-in-seconds\(cq seconds. Time should be given as a floating point value (eg. 0.001 is the same as 1ms). [-]
ai-setpos \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ai-set-position \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ao-setpos \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq, ao-set-position \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq Set audio object position to \(cqtime_in_seconds\(cq. [-]
ai-set-position-samples \(cqtime_in_samples\(cq, ao-set-position-samples \(cqtime_in_samples\(cq Set audio object position to \(cqtime_in_samples\(cq. [-]
ai-getpos, ai-get-position, ao-getpos, ao-get-position Returns the audio object position in seconds. [f]
ai-get-position-samples, ao-get-position-samples Returns the audio object position in samples. [li]
ai-get-length, ao-get-length Returns the audio object length in seconds. [f]
ai-get-length-samples, ao-get-length-samples Returns the audio object length in samples. [li]
ai-get-format, ao-get-format Returns the audio format of the selected audio input/output as a formatted string. See documentation for \(cq-f\(cq command-line option. [s]
ai-list, ao-list Returns a list of all input/output objects. [S]
aio-register Prints a list of registered audio object types. [s]
aio-status Audio object status (index strings, position, length, etc). [s]

CHAIN OPERATORS

Chain operators are used to process and analyze sample data. They are attached to chains. If not otherwise stated, currently selected chainsetup and chain are used. Also, \(cqchainop_id\(cq and \(cqparam_id\(cq are used to select chain operators and their parameters. First valid value for these parameters is 1.
cop-add \(cqcop_format_string\(cq Adds a new chain operator. In addition to normal chain operators, this commmand can also be used to add effect presets and various plugins. Note; it is not possible to add operators to multiple chains at once. In other words only one chain should be selected when issuing \(cqcop-add\(cq. See ecasound (1) man page for more info. [-]
cop-bypass <on|off|toggle> Set the bypass state of the currently selected chain operator. The command takes a single parameter: \(dqon\(dq -> operator is bypassed, \(dqoff\(dq -> no bypass, and \(dqtoggle\(dq -> change the bypass state. If parameter is omitted, \(dqtoggle\(dq is assumed (bypass is either enabled or disabled, depending on previous state). [-]
cop-is-bypassed Returns true if selected chain operator is currently bypassed (temporarily not part of the processing chain). [i]
cop-describe Returns a Ecasound Option Syntax (EOS) compliant string describing the chain operator. See the Ecasound User\(cqs Guide for more information about EOS. This command was introduced in ecasound 2.4.4. [s]

cop-get \(cqchainop_id,param_id\(cq Returns the current value of chain operator parameter identified by \(cqchainop_id\(cq and \(cqparam_id\(cq. This command is a shorthand for \(cqcop-select chainop_id ; copp-iselect param_id ; copp-get\(cq. [f]
cop-status Returns info about chain operator status. [s]
copp-list Returns a list of selected chain operator\(cqs parameters. [S]

CONTROLLERS

Controllers are used to control individual chain operator parameters. They are attached to chains. If not otherwise stated, currently selected chainsetup and chains are used.
ctrl-add \(cqcopc_format_string\(cq Adds a new controller and attach it to currently selected chain operator. The argument syntax is either \(dq-<id_string>:par1,...,parN\(dq or just \(dq<id_string>:par1,...,parN\(dq. If parameter itself contains commas, the parameter should be enclosed in double-quotes. See ecasound (1) man page for more info. [-]

ctrl-list Returns a list of all controllers attached to the currently selected chain. [S]
ctrl-select \(cqparam_id\(cq, ctrl-index-select \(cqparam_id\(cq, ctrl-iselect \(cqparam_id\(cq Selects a controller. [-]
ctrl-selected Returns the index number of currently selected controller. [i]
ctrl-status Returns info about controller status. [s]
ctrl-register Prints a list of registered controllers. [s]
ctrl-get-target Returns the index number of the chain operator that is connected to the selected controller. The returned index refers to the currently selected chain (see \(cqcop-list\(cq). [i]

JACK CONNECTION MANAGEMENT

If Ecasound is compiled with support for JACK audio server, the following set of commands is provided for controlling connections between JACK ports.
jack-connect \(cqsrc-port\(cq \(cqdest-port\(cq Make a connection between the two ports given as parameters. This command is similar to the \(cqjack_connect\(cq command line tool that is distributed with JACK package. [-]

jack-list-connections Returns a list of all JACK ports and a list of connections for each port. This command is similar to the \(cqjack_lsp\(cq command line tool (e.g. \(cqjack_lsp -c\(cq) that is distributed with JACK package. [s]

INTERNAL COMMANDS

Internal commands are not directly aimed at normal use. They are primarily meant for use in scripting and frontends.
int-cmd-list Returns a list of all registered interactive mode commands. [S]

dump-cop-value \(cqchainop,param\(cq Dumps chain operator parameter value. \(cqchainop\(cq and \(cqparam\(cq are operator and parameter index values (1...n). [-]

OPERATOR DESCRIPTIONS

The map-xxx-list commands return a string containing all registered objects of the given type xxx. Each line of the output describes one registered type. The used syntax is:
\(cqkeyword,name,description,num_of_params,par1_def,par2_def,...\(cq
parX_def describes one object parameter. This definition is present for all parameters of the described object type. The used syntax is:
\(cqname,description,defaultvalue,upper_bound_flag,upper_bound, lower_bound_flag,lower_bound,toggled_flag,integer_flag, logarithmic_flag,output_flag\(cq
For exact descriptions of these fields, please see the header file ecasound/libecasound/eca-operator.h.

DEPRECATED COMMANDS

Use of following commands is deprecated. They still work in current version of Ecasound, but will be dropped in the future:
ai-wave-edit, ao-wave-edit
