Projects / SndBite


SndBite is a specialized audio editor designed for breaking large recordings into smaller components with great efficiency. Its principal intended application is in linguistic research where it is often desirable to put each word or sentence into a separate file before further processing. It is also useful for measuring pause durations. Its features include multiple simultaneous views of the waveform at different resolutions, the ability to position window edges at transitions between sound and silence, automated setting of cut points at zero-crossings, automatic filename generation easily controlled by the user, and optional automatic playback on window motion. It is scriptable and may be run in batch mode without the GUI.
