Mixing music in bash

( for((i=0;$i<100;i++))do echo volume $i 1; sleep 0.1s; done; )| mplayer -slave -quiet sample.mp3
Of course, a fifo is required for piloting the fade out of another song, but with a few bash function, we can mix music in bash like : crossfadeIn > mplayerfifo1 & crossfadeOut > mplayerfifo2 loop 0 10 > mplayer fifo1 etc etc
