Hi,

I have some Problems with the Sound under Digital Unix

Here a example:

I create a sound object (s1)first:

s1 = Play[Sin[880 Pi t], {t, 0, 10}];

Play and "Friends" do'nt work on my Unix OS (Why ???)

so I'm going to export the sound object into a file:

Export["/myhome/tmp/mysound.wav", Show[s1], "WAV"]

and play it with the decsound command line executable:

! "/usr/bin/mme/decsound -play /myhome/tmp/mysound.wav"

Ok it works - I can here the sound (-:

Now I created a module:

MySound[sound_] := Module[{},

    Export["/myhome/tmp/mysound.wav", Show[sound], "WAV"];

    ! "/usr/bin/mme/decsound -play /myhome/andre/tmp/mysound.wav"

    ]

MySound[s1]

where the two lines are taken from above, but it doesn't work.

And I can't see the reason, so please help me.

I am also intrested in the reason, why I had to make all these

thinks for listening a simple Sound.

PS I tested some "work arounds" with sound.m from the mathematica FAQ's

but it doesn't work.

MFG

Andre
