Apply fade effect to a audio

fade [type] fade-in-length [stop-time [fade-out-length]] Apply a fade effect to the beginning, end, or both of the audio. An optional type can be specified to select the shape of the fade curve: q for quarter of a sine wave, h for half a sine wave, t for linear (`triangular') slope, l for logarithmic, and p for inverted parabola. The default is logarithmic. A fade-in starts from the first sample and ramps the signal level from 0 to full volume over fade-in-length sec? onds. Specify 0 seconds if no fade-in is wanted. For fade-outs, the audio will be truncated at stop-time and the signal level will be ramped from full volume down to 0 starting at fade-out-length seconds before the stop-time. If fade-out-length is not specified, it defaults to the same value as fade-in-length. No fade-out is performed if stop-time is not specified. If the file length can be determined from the input file header and length-changing effects are not in effect, then 0 may be specified for stop-time to indicate the usual case of a fade-out that ends at the end of the input audio stream. All times can be specified in either periods of time or sample counts. To specify time periods use the format hh:mm:ss.frac format. To specify using sample counts, specify the number of samples and append the letter `s' to the sample count (for example `8000s').

  • Update a Mandriva Linux system with any pending updates. This command needs to be run with root privilege. Using the "--force" option answers "yes" to any interactive prompts thus allowing the updates to be left unattended to completion. NB if there is an update for glibc and/or a new kernel then the system would need to be rebooted for these to take effect. A prerequisite for running "urpmi --auto-update" is to have correctly defined urpmi media sources (which can be done by visiting http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/). If there are no new updates the the message "Packages are up to date" is shown. Show Sample Output

  • This assumes that there is a 10.2 sec delay between the video and the audio (delayed). To extract the original video into a audio and video composites look at the command on extracting audio and video from a movie

  • Very useful for recording radio scanner for instance as the resulting audio file contains only audio signal that exceeds -45dB and the file name tells you when the recording was done. Why waste time listening silence? ;) Show Sample Output
