I’ve read on the Audacity website that if I build Audacity myself and obtain the right plugins, scripting is possible. I would love to be able to get a binary that’s ready to go if anyone has such a thing for Ubuntu (16.04).
We work on a podcast and part of my workflow involves receiving recordings from various remote parties (we do a triple-ender, sometimes more). Performing the same operations repeatedly takes a lot of time; mostly while waiting for the operations to complete so I can go on to the next effect. Compression, noise reduction (using the first second of silence we record) and noise gate are very rote activities very suited to scripting.
Would the team consider making such a build available?
Thanks Trebor & steve. This looks promising, but also looks like it only works on one selected track at a time. I want to be able to run this on a project and have it iterate through each track. This is where the real time saving would be and where I imagine scripting could shine. Is this possible with chains?
My subjective experience tells me that selecting multiple tracks for an effect (compression for example) does not give the same result as doing each one individually. Am I correct in this assessment? I’d love to be wrong.
This looks great, thank you. Is it possible to automate the noise reduction? If for example, the beginning of every imported file had no speech for the first five seconds, which the noise could be sampled from?
