This program mostly just automates in code
something similar to the process which I came up
with and documented in this video:
Here is the information you need to get it from github: Explodomatica github page.
This program has dependencies on the following libraries:

EXPLODOMATICA(1) User Commands EXPLODOMATICA(1) NAME explodomatica - generate explosion sound effects SYNOPSIS explodomatica [OPTION]... [FILE] DESCRIPTION An explosion sound effect is generated, and saved as mono 44100Hz PCM data in the specified wav file. -d, --duration Specifies the approximate duration in seconds the explosion should last. Fractional seconds are permitted. -l, --nlayers Specifies the number of sound layers which should be used to create each sub-explosion within the explosion. -p, --preexplosions Specifies the number of "preexplosions" to generate. You can think of the "preexplosions" as the "ka" part of "ka-BOOM!" --pre-delay Specifies the approximate duration in seconds of the "ka" part of "ka-BOOM!". Default is 0.25 seconds. The value is somewhat randomized and this value is more like an upper bound with zero being the lower bound. --pre-lp-factor Specifies the factor to use with the low pass filter on the pre- explosion. Values closer to zero do more (suppress the pre- explosion more) while values closer to 1 do less. --pre-lp-iters Specifies how many times to apply the low pass filter to the pre-explosion. Default is 1. -s, --speedfactor Specifies the factor by which to speed up or slow down the final explosion sound. Values greater than 1.0 speed the sound up, values less than 1.0 slow the sound down. The default is 0.45. EXAMPLES explodomatica --duration 2 --preexplosions 0 --nlayers 3 test.wav SEE ALSO <http://scameron.github.com/explodomatica> AUTHOR Written by Stephen M.
