Installing sox with mp3 support: 64-bit and ARM

Nowadays, the right way to install sox on macOS is Homebrew. Simply by using the following command in the terminal:

brew install sox

This installs sox and all its dependencies on macOS 10.12 Sierra and higher including building/patching libmad for both 64-bit Intel and ARM (Apple silicon) architectures.

Checked and working here on both High Sierra (64-bit Intel) and Big Sur (ARM).
