I use dtas for audio play back over USB.
Queue only (maybe I will replace this with dtas-tl in the future).
As I normally do a lot of things with python I have written some minimal
wrappers so I can use dtas together with python.
Commands in use:
dtas-ctl source ed sox sink ed .... (sound card control)
dtas-ctl source ed sox command= .... (low/highpass and fadeout control)
dtas-ctl state dump /tmp/playerstate.yml
dtas-ctl clear | current | pause | play | seek | skip
Example workflow (this is how work as Tango DJ):
1. Start dtas-player:
dtas-ctl source ed sox sink ed default env.AUDIODRIVER=alsa \
dtas-ctl source ed sox command=exec sox "$INFILE" $SOXFMT - $TRIMFX \
$RGFX sinc 35 sinc -9k
2. Start QuodLibet
I use QuodLibet to manage my music library. I decide what to play next
and I use a plugin I have written for QuodLibet to add the next song(s)
to the dtas player queue. While playing for the audience (with dtas) I
use QuodLibet for pre-listening.
3. Start my own dtas queue viewer and minimal control application.
This is a very small application (using tk) that shows the content of
the queue and enables some control (mainly play, pause and fadeout).
4. I have planned to use more EQ settings depending on the decade of
the music (Music from the the thirties (Shellac) differs a lot from the
music of the fifties (Vinyl) which differs a lot from digital music of
