+Sonic Visualiser is an application for viewing and analysing the contents
+of music audio files. The aim of Sonic Visualiser is to be the first
+program you reach for when want to study a musical recording rather than
+simply listen to it.
+This requires ladspa_sdk, vamp-plugin-sdk, rubberband, and liblrdf.
+Also, one (or both) of either jack-audio-connection-kit or portaudio is
+required for audio playback.
+Note to x86_64 users: if sonic-visualiser can't seem to find
+any VAMP plugins you've installed, you may have to 'export
+VAMP_PATH=/usr/lib64/vamp'. The SBo vamp-plugin-sdk (v2.1, build
+2) package at the time of this writing still defaults to using
+/usr/lib/vamp. Future builds of vamp-plugin-sdk should address this.
