Using

Running pebsaq with no arguments will start the utility in interactive mode. In interactive mode you can interactively change the frequency and the strengths of the waves. A nice wave will also be drawn to the screen.

Running pebsaq --help will show a list of available command-line options. These options can also be specified in config files. Config files use a property = value syntax (e.g. frequency = 367 or square strength = 2) separated by newlines.

Press 3 to decrease the frequency by 10Hz. Press 6 to increase the frequency by 10Hz. Press down arrow key to decrease the amplitude by 0.1. Press down arrow key to increase the amplitude by 0.1. Press 1 to decrease the sine strength by 1. Press 2 to increase the sine strength by 1. Press 4 to decrease the square strength by 1. Press 5 to increase the square strength by 1. Press 7 to decrease the triangle strength by 1. Press 8 to increase the triangle strength by 1. Press 0 to mute pebsaq. Press ESC to exit pebsaq.
