Reduce size of generated audio files. Set Timidity to produce mono output and crank up the compression on MP3 and OGGs.

# Make audio required for the website but not for the book.
# They go into web/<book>.

if [ $# != 1 ]; then
    echo "Usage: <book dir name>"
    exit 1



mkdir -p $builddir

# Now, for each tune, make the tune bitmap and sound. Do this to temp
# files and rename into place to make updates as atomic as possible.

        # Timidity can generate OGG directly. But we need to generate WAV
        # for lame, and oggenc produces smaller output. OGG is needed for

        # MP3 but not OGG.
