AppleScript to detect Sound Activated Recording in Audacity

Permanent link to this post Posted by adamaron » Tue Oct 31, 2017 3:06 am

Sound Activated Recording under the Transport menu lets Audacity detect a sound of particular intensity and then start recording while that sound occurs. What I need is for AppleScript to know that this has happened, so it can control a different program. I'm not sure if it's possible that AppleScript can 'know' that Audacity was triggered in this way. Please help.

I'm using Mac OS-X 10.12.6 Sierra and Audacity 2.1.3, which I got from the .dmg installer.

Thanks much

I'm no expert with AppleScript, but as far as I'm aware it has no way of knowing what Audacity is doing.
