Silence Finder

Post by Deeks » Sat Jun 19, 2021 4:48 am

Hi folks, enjoying the new version 3.0.2 so far. Just one question. Regarding the "silence finder", has that changed ? I couldn't find it, but I did find a function called "truncate silence". I'm assuming that has taken over from previous version ?

Audacity used to use a plug-in called "Silence Finder" to add labels at gaps. That plug-in was replaced by "Label Sounds", but the old effect is still available as an optional plug-in: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqu ... nce_Finder
See the top of that page for download and installation instructions.

In addition to jademan's comment:

1. Documentation for the new "Label Sounds" plug-in is here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/label_sounds.html

2. If you specifically want to use the old "Silence Finder" Nyquist plug-in, it is available here: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqu ... nce_Finder
