yeah, but if I understand that it looks for gaps of silence. Sort of like for splitting music tracks fomr a single recording into individual tracks… but as this is a recording of a voice … there is gaps of silence all over the place so it splits it into like 500zillion files.
I was wondering if there is a way to automate it. That was just an example. What I am in fact doing is recording a audio track for video. I use a application to sync the audio to the video, so I can use diffrent cameras and all this stuff. The audio syncs best if it syncs many files instead of one, so I would like to split the audio into say 5 min chunks… so a take might be 50 mins total footage. Blah blah blah.
What I was wondering is if there is a way to automate the adding of track info, like the noise gap thing in thew wiki, but have the app ONLY look for a gap after a set period of time. So… find the 1st gap in the audio after a “5 minuet interval”… then after 5 mins, look for a new gap to add as the second track… etc etc
That’s a feature request for Sound Finder or Silence Finder. Does the attached Sound Finder help that has a “Minimum Label length (minutes)” control? This labels the sounds of the required length. Put it in the Audacity Plug-Ins folder and restart Audacity.
It’s Steve’s plugin, not mine - one of many iterations tried out to update and/or make one plugin out of Sound Finder and Silence Finder.
