Sound Finder Enhancement

I would love to be able to adjust the Sound Finder’s “Label Starting Point” “Label Ending Point” to be larger than 1 second. I typically save 1 second before the track but I like to have 2 seconds after the track and I have to currently manually do each one.

Thanks in advance,

Sound Finder is a “Nyquist Plug-in”, and as such it is very easy to modify.

Find the file “SoundFinder.ny” in your Audacity plug-ins folder.
Make a back-up copy of that file (just in case :wink:)

Open “NotePad” (or other plain text editor - don’t use a word processor).
Open the file “SoundFinder.ny” in the text editor.

About 18 lines down you will see the line:

;control labelafterdur "Label ending point [seconds after sound ends]" real "" 0.1 0.0 1.0

At the end of that line,
“0.1” is the default setting.
0.0 is the minimum slider range.
1.0 is the maximum slider range.

If you change that line to:

;control labelafterdur "Label ending point [seconds after sound ends]" real "" 2.0 0.0 3.0

then the default will be 2.0 seconds and the slider range will be from 0 seconds to 3 seconds.

Save the file and ensure that the file name remains exactly the same.
Restart Audacity and you should now have a customised version of Sound Finder.
