Available output modes (-O, --output-mode option):
  -Od          dsp device
  -Os          ALSA pcm device
  -OR          aRts
  -Oe          Enlightened sound daemon
  -Oj          JACK device
  -Ow          RIFF WAVE file
  -Or          Raw waveform data
  -Ou          Sun audio file
  -Oa          AIFF file
  -Ov          Ogg Vorbis
  -Ol          List MIDI event
