What Others Think

Doesn't work in my setup, changes to the play command perhaps? play --version play: SoX v14.2.0 for n in E2 A2 D3 G3 B3 E4;do play -n synth 4 pluck $n repeat 2;done play synth: no type given play synth: no type given play synth: no type given play synth: no type given play synth: no type given play synth: no type given

I don't know, you might try changing the synth type. Try this: for n in E2 A2 D3 G3 B3 E4;do play -n synth 4 sine $n repeat 2;done

Same thing here. I'm using: sox --version sox: SoX v14.2.0

Apparently it only works with sox version 14.3.0 or greater.
