    da_Soundscape is for playing one or two lists of audio files. Each list has it’s own options and can be played on a different sound card.

    If anyone wants to try it, I've created a page on da-Share for it.

    No help file yet, but it should be easy enough to figure out. Use the + button to add mp3 / wav files or drop them onto the grid.

    Coming along nicely.
    The 3rd layer is handy. In testing just now I've set up this:
    1. ambient wind noise constantly playing, pan = centre
    2. several different thunder noises, play order = random, pan = random
    3. several different animal noises, play order = random, pan = random
    Makes for quite a good overall background sound, would be great if you had stereo speakers spread a little way a part in your yard.

    One question: the delay min and delay max, is that in seconds and exactly what is it for?

    Its the delay between when one file finishes and next starts. If both set to 0, its instant start. If both set to same value, it will be that many seconds between sounds. If values are different, then it will randomly pick a value between them as the delay.
    At least, that's my understanding/experience with it :)

    Yeah, DJ is right about the delay. When set to zero the delay is fixed at 50ms.

    Feedback is more always welcome. :)

    Thanks, David.
    I'm attempting to synchronise Beagle-bone Black, Raspberry Pi 2 and a Pixlite 16 controllers in my display, with a common sound source.
    I'll give it a try and let you know how it went.
