Auto-slice/batch process app?

Post by Sanchez » 02 Feb 2011, 04:15

I'm looking for a means to auto-slice 15 min files of spoken sentences and single words (there are silent gaps between each word/sentence), leaving a pre-defined space pre-/post- each slice. Also want to then batch process some eq/comp/normalise. I know AudioFinder can potentially do the auto-slice, but obviously if one app can cover all the tasks that's preferable. I've been looking on some forums for suggestions but nothing yet. What would you suggest?

You can use 'Strip silence' if you have Logic. Then you will be left with a bunch of regions you can turn into audiofiles.

Off the top of my head (if Audio Finder is not enough for the batch processing aspect), then take a look at:

Audiofile Engineering 'Sample Manager' (Audiofile has a forum here on Mac OSX Audio for any questions):

Wavelab can do this as well. from about 5 onwards I think.
its a feature called Autosplit. I use it all the time when I can't be as*ed to chop up samples from films or whatever.
Wavelab also is now available for the MAC as well. Joy!

hope that helps.
