This is an open series in which Hacker Public Radio Listeners can share their Bash scripting knowledge and experience with the community. General programming topics and Bash commands are explored along with some tutorials for the complete novice.

Audio speedup script

Back in 2015 Ken Fallon did a show (episode 1766) on how to use sox to truncate silence and speed up audio.

Inspired by this I wrote a Bash script to aid my use of the technique, which I thought I’d share with you.

I have written out detailed notes for this episode describing the script and examining how it works and these are available here
