          - record audio device and save one utterance to a file


       adinrec [options...] {filename}


       adinrec opens an audio stream, detects an utterance input and store it
       to a specified file. The utterance detection is done by level and
       zero-cross thresholds. Default input device is microphone, but other
       audio input source, including Julius A/D-in plugin, can be used by
       using "-input" option.

       The audio format is 16 bit, 1 channel, in Microsoft WAV format. If the
       given filename already exists, it will be overridden.

       If filename is "-" , the captured data will be streamed into standard
       out, with no header (raw format).


       adinrec uses JuliusLib and adopts Julius options. Below is a list of
       valid options.

   adinrec specific options
        -freq  Hz
          Set sampling rate in Hz. (default: 16,000)

          Output in raw file format.

   JuliusLib options
        -input  {mic|rawfile|adinnet|stdin|netaudio|esd|alsa|oss}
          Choose speech input source. Specify ’file’ or ’rawfile’ for waveform
          file. On file input, users will be prompted to enter the file name
          from stdin.

          ´mic’ is to get audio input from a default live microphone device,
          and ’adinnet’ means receiving waveform data via tcpip network from
          an adinnet client. ’netaudio’ is from DatLink/NetAudio input, and
          ’stdin’ means data input from standard input.

          At Linux, you can choose API at run time by specifying alsa, oss and

        -lv  thres
          Level threshold for speech input detection. Values should be in
          range from 0 to 32767. (default: 2000)

        -zc  thres
          Zero crossing threshold per second. Only input that goes over the
          level threshold (-lv) will be counted. (default: 60)

        -headmargin  msec
          Silence margin at the start of speech segment in milliseconds.
          (default: 300)

        -tailmargin  msec
          Silence margin at the end of speech segment in milliseconds.
          (default: 400)

          This option enables DC offset removal.

        -smpFreq  Hz
          Set sampling rate in Hz. (default: 16,000)

          Record input with 48kHz sampling, and down-sample it to 16kHz
          on-the-fly. This option is valid for 16kHz model only. The
          down-sampling routine was ported from sptk. (Rev. 4.0)

        -NA  devicename
          Host name for DatLink server input (-input netaudio).

        -adport  port_number
          With -input adinnet, specify adinnet port number to listen.
          (default: 5530)

          Julius by default removes successive zero samples in input speech
          data. This option stop it.

        -C  jconffile
          Load a jconf file at here. The content of the jconffile will be
          expanded at this point.

        -plugindir  dirlist
          Specify which directories to load plugin. If several direcotries
          exist, specify them by colon-separated list.


          Device name string for ALSA. (default: "default")

          Device name string for OSS. (default: "/dev/dsp")

          Input latency of microphone input in milliseconds. Smaller value
          will shorten latency but sometimes make process unstable. Default
          value will depend on the running OS.
