I am looking for a text-based way to set various start and end points within a given audio file, so that whenever an end point is reached, the audio file skips to the next start point when playing. (I think the example I have below will make what I am looking for more clear.)
The closest thing that I have found to what I am looking for is a cue file, but as far as I can tell, that is intended purely to label different segments of an audio file as different tracks.
So for example, here is a cue file I have:
PERFORMER "Unknown Artist" TITLE "Unknown Title" FILE "File.mp3" WAVE TRACK 01 AUDIO TITLE "Track01" PERFORMER "Unknown Artist" INDEX 01 00:10:00 TRACK 02 AUDIO TITLE "Track02" PERFORMER "Unknown Artist" INDEX 01 01:15:00
This file will start playback at
00:10:00, then just continue playing. At
01:15:00, it will change the label of what is being played. What I want is something more like what the following fake cue file would do:
PERFORMER "Unknown Artist" TITLE "Unknown Title" FILE "File.mp3" WAVE TRACK 01 AUDIO TITLE "Track01" PERFORMER "Unknown Artist" INDEX 01 00:10:00 00:30:00 TRACK 02 AUDIO TITLE "Track02" PERFORMER "Unknown Artist" INDEX 01 01:15:00 01:30:00
The idea is that, when using this, the audio file would play from
00:30:00, then jump to
01:15:00 and continue playing until
Does anyone know of a tool where I can implement this kind of thing (or if I can do it with cue files, does anyone know how)?
By the way, I know this is probably an obscure request. The purpose behind it is to have an easy way to do rough cuts of audio tracks where I have a lot of stuff I want to get rid of. For me, a text-based way like this to do this would be easier to use than a lot of the free point-and-click based tools, like Audacity.
Thanks for any help.
