aubioquiet - a command line tool to extracts quiet and loud regions from a file


aubioquiet source

aubioquiet will print a timestamp each time it detects a new silent region or a new loud region in a sound file.

When started with an input source (-i/--input), the detected timestamps are printed on the console, in seconds.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (--). A summary of options is included below.

Run analysis on this audio file. Most uncompressed and compressed are supported, depending on how aubio was built.
Fetch the input source, resampled at the given sampling rate. The rate should be specified in Hertz as an integer. If 0, the sampling rate of the original source will be used. Defaults to 0.
The size of the buffer to analyze, that is the length of the window used for spectral and temporal computations. Defaults to 512.
The number of samples between two consecutive analysis. Defaults to 256.
Set the silence threshold, in dB, under which the pitch will not be detected. Defaults to -90.0.
Set time format (samples, ms, seconds). Defaults to seconds.
