I've seen other software that has a "remove silence" feature. I haven't
seen a function like that available for Audacity, would nicely complement
the INSERT silence.
It would be useful for people that are recording "live" speech, such as
conversations, meetings, speeches and other addresses and need to clean it
up later. Basic function would need:
- minimum volume threshold - i.e. levels below this point would be taken as
- maximum silence - i.e. after X seconds of silence, the plug-in would start
Additional Parameters could include:
- minimum sound length - eg bumping the mic or a single hack might only be
above the threshold for part of a second - this might allow you to
automatically delete those too.
- lead in and lead out time - rather than miss the first bit of someone
talking as belately you turn up the volume (ahem) or miss the last echo as
the sound dies out, have short period of time that will not get deleted.
Probably this would be *include* in the maxiumum silence time. Eg, 1/2
second lead in + 1/2 second lead out + 1 second of additional silence = 2
seconds of "maxium silence"
Well, you asked for suggestions David! *grin*
Also, I see that PC World and PC Plus magazines have recently published
articles about Audacity, congrats on the good press!
