However, what is the easiest/best way to get this into a multichannel format, say 5.1 or even 16 channels?  Ideally it would be nice to specify multiple frequencies for each channel, but if I want say 16 channels of the exact same sinewave in each, how would I do this?  Is there a way to “copy” the first channel into the remaining 15?  Do I need to specify an input for each channel and then use –map correctly?

Probably easier to do this with aevalsrc, you can find examples here:


And yout command line should look something like:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i
