Sweep: Real-world audio editing on Linux

Paper (PDF) and Paper (DVI)

This paper outlines my recent work on Sweep, a digital audio editor, as part of a contract with Pixar Animation Studios, where it is now used in animation production, and further work supported by CSIRO Australia.

Sweep is Free Software, available under the GNU General Public License.

This presentation will include:

  • a brief demonstration of Sweep's capabilities, including multichannel editing, recording, and interactive scrubbing
  • an examination of the usability design, whereby Sweep provides an intuitive interface both for audio editing and live DJing.
  • an overview of technical innovations, including the modelling of vinyl style "scrubbing" and monitoring of playback latency

No prior knowledge of complex software or audio concepts is required. This is an energetic presentation including interesting examples of editing speech and music, and live DJing.
