Cut and paste audio file by visualizing sound track in Ubuntu
Posted on 2011-10-28
I would like to extract a piece from long audio file, by searching a soundtrack visually.
In most places file is silent, so noise spots should be seen on some sort of
I am working in Ubuntu, 10.04 with audio files like *.ogg
I tried Avidimax, but it does not display a track.
I tried Audasios, but it does not display a track and cannot find cut/past feature there.
I tried Ardor GTK2, but it fails to load complaining about somting like "jack" cannot start, or
jack cannot connect to a server. (Apparently this program is over kill for a task, do one really
needs a "audio" server for simple task?)
I tried auedit, but failed with following messages and dim recommendations:
Can't connect to audio server
You need to set the AUDIOSERVER environment variable (this is assumimng you
have au running already) to something like localhost:0 or use the -audio
option (e.g. "auedit -audio tcp/localhost:8000 foo.wav")
Why do we need a server, to edit a binary file?
The question: how to accomplish a task?
