Snd-ls is a distribution of Bill Schottstaedt's sound editor SND.
Its target is people that don't know scheme very well, and don't want
to spend too much time configuring Snd. It can also serve
as a quick introduction to Snd and how it can be set up.

The biggest thing about this release of Snd-ls is probably that the 
rt-player is enabled by default. The rt-player is an alternative player 
engine for SND that plays soundfiles using the rt-extension and reads data 
from disk through a buffer. The result is less clicks, and more channels
can be played safely at once.

Changes ->
-Moved the dac size slider into the options menu.
-Hide listener on startup.
-Removed marks stuff from popup menu. (Incompatible with snd_conffile.scm)
-Updated Snd from 8.0/30.3 to 8.0/2.4. Many important fixes, including
  listener stuff.
-Removed playing buttons from pop-up menues.
-Added checks for gtk-mnemnomnics so that old key-bindings aren't
-Many fixes for the rt-player.
-Various fixes so that debug printing and warnings/errors are put out to
  the listener as well as stdout/stderr.
-Configured the transform view to show sonograms by default.
-Increased standard dac-size from 1024 to 2048.
-Added shortcut "l" to turn on/off the listener, and added it to the
  help menu along with the "c" key for turning on/off controls.
-Updated Snd from 7.15 to 8.0.
-Enabled rt-player by default. rt-player is an alternative player engine
  for snd, that plays using the rt-extension and reads data from disk
  through a ringbuffer. The result is less clicks.
