AudioTrim

AudioTrim[audio]

trims silence from the beginning and end of audio.

AudioTrim[audio,t]

returns the first t seconds of audio.

AudioTrim[audio,-t]

returns the last t seconds of audio.

AudioTrim[audio,{t1,t2}]

returns audio starting at time t1 and ending at time t2 of audio.

AudioTrim[audio,{{t11,t12},}]

returns a list of audio for all given intervals {ti1,ti2}.

Details and Options

  • AudioTrim can be used to either extract interesting parts of a recording or remove uninteresting parts, e.g. silence.
  • Intervals with amplitudes below are assumed to be silent.
  • The time t can be any of the following:
  • ttime given in seconds
    Quantity[t,"unit"]time given in "unit" compatible with seconds
    Quantity[t,"Samples"]time given as number of samples
  • AudioTrim takes a Padding option. See the reference page for AudioPad for possible settings.
  • In AudioTrim[audio,t], when t is longer than the duration of audio, by default no extra padding is introduced.
