Organise your sound files

STx can play, analyse, annotate and modify wave files. The main application - the Workspace - is where you load your sound files and start your analysis from. Your sound files are organised in a project file. You can use the FindFile application to search for wave files on disk and import them into STx.

Scripts, Toolboxes, Development, and Extending STx

STx comes with a number of pre-installed scripts - applications written in the STx scripting language, and loaded and run from a text file. You can write your own STx scripts, toolboxes and applications. All the functionality that you find in STx is available to you in the script language. The script controller dialog, the command line console, the integrated debugger and the Programmer Guide will help you.
