So fellow HA user, before downloading, review that some formats are dropped from latest SoX Windows binary, probably by mistake
I've just uploaded sox-14.4.1a-win32 packages to Sourceforge. If I getsome positive feedback on it, I'll make it recommended download version forWindows platform and delete the original sox-14.4.1-win32 packages.Chris
SoX 14.4.0 was released on 4th March, 1 year after previous version.Links: download / changelogHighlights include:- Add floating point encodings in AIFF-C files. - New upsample, hilbert, and downsample effects. - Enable --plot on biquad and fir effects. - Now effects chain can be unlimitted length. - Improved audio length calculations when using effects. - New trim effect with enhanced capabilities. - Improved large file support. - MP2 write support.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.
Other formats, which seem like libsndfile dependent, aren't reported as supported nor I personally use them.
But there are people who would have a use for e.g. W64 to exchange movie-long multi-channel audio (possibly >4 GB) with other supporting tools. Is there anyone who builds SoX with libsndfile as Win32 or even Win64 package? Hard to find with Google, there are many only halfway related results.

It appears that the media-autobuild_suite (german thread) is trying to include a full-featured build of SoX from current sources.
