Is there a possibility to "run this command", everytime when I doubleclick the wav file ?
That code has to be run inside Audacity.

The code can easily be converted into a plug-in so that it appears in Audacity's "Effect" menu - you just need to add the appropriate "headers" (see: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqu ... _Reference) and install it (See: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/ins ... st_install)

Ok, I got one last question then:

Let's suppose I've randomized it, but everytime the sound is played, it's played from the beginning.

Is there a way to tell the file "when I click you play the sound from the second where I left off last time" ?

Or does it really have to be hardcoded into the app ?

thanks
