When loading an audio file in Audacity, you can see the audio position of the cursor on the bottom.
For example: 00h04min24.653sec
When clicking on this field, you can change the format to seconds, frames, samples etc.
I would like to be able to copy the value of this field (no matter what format it is) to the clipboard.
Of course I’ve already tried right-clicking on the field or just Ctrl+C - nothing worked.
Can you please add the possibility that users can copy those values?
Would be very useful for audio position, and optionally for start and end of selection.
This short code can be run in the Nyquist Prompt effect to give the start of a selection in seconds (the caveat being that the Nyquist Prompt effect requires playback to be stopped, and for there to be an audio selection):
It’s indeed an interesting way.
I tried it and the first impression was good.
Why I need this information?
I want to cut the silence of many MP3s at the end of the track.
However, instead of re-encoding them, I’ll use another program which just cuts them.
With Audacity I find out the starting point of the silence and the whole song length.
I store everything in an Excel table.
(I created AHK scripts for that.)
P.S. But you might remember the wish anyway to add Copy support for these fields…
I’d like to add my vote for this feature request please. I use audacity to find the end of songs and then enter that number into OSX Music.app as a “stop time” in the track’s options. very similar to @4ud4cit4t0r use case.
