ASCII data in two column format.
In this format the time of each data sample is given with the value
of each sample.

known as simply "ascii".
The output=ascii option has been retained. output=ascii is the same
as output=ascii2

audiosamplerate, audiocompress

The audiosamplerate option will cause the audio output to be played

The audiocompress option will apply a dynamic gain adjustment that
tends to equalize the
volume level of loud periods of time relative to quite periods of
