Is it possible yet? Can I add resampling to a chain to batch convert a large batch of audio files to 22050 sample rate?
Not with Audacity, but there are other programs that can, such as SoX.
There’s an example bash script for batch processing with SoX here that may help: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/batch-scripts-with-other-programs/18178/6
Thankyou Steve - for pointing me to sox - hadn’t used it before and thanks for that sox-recursive-batch-converter script: it whizzed through 1189 mp3 files and (being slightly modified*), reduced volume and bit rate as well as the resampling. Delighted - thankyou.
- sox -S -v 0.5 “$FILE” -r 22050 -C 24.2 “$DIR/$outputfile”\
