[OT] converting 5-track sound file to 5 mono tracks

July 9, 2007 | 3:51 pm

Hello,

I am recording 5-track *.aif files inside Max with [sfplay~ 5], but I can’t import them into Digital Performer.

Do you know any freeware that would convert these files to five splitted mono tracks ?

Thanks for your help,
-j

You mean sfrecord~, don’t you?

The last time I checked, Audacity was able to do that.

can’t this be done with quicktime? (though maybe only with quicktime
pro, which isn’t free.)

I’ve used Audacity to dump multiple channels out individually, but this
method was time-consuming if the files were very large.

This tool was just announced on the cec-conference list, and it looks
like it will save my life. I’m tired of so many programs which require
overviews to be rendered before any operations can be performed.
(though it’s true Quicktime Pro is nice in this respect for its lack of
graphical feedback). The announcement is copied below:

"I’m pleased to announce that a beta release De-Interleaver is
available for download and testing. De-Interleaver is a Mac OSX app
which does two things: Interleave multiple mono files into a
multichannel file, and split a multichannel file into mono files.

Download available here: http://scottwilson.ca/site/Software.html

Best,

Scott"

Just tried De-Interleaver. Works great. I had been working on something
similar using buf.Op. How about a function that normalizes the
de-interlaced files to the peak amplitude of the multi-track file.

I have just discovered that you can do batch processing with csound, using a
particular bash command and macros defined in your orchestra file. It will
be great for doing this kind of stuff like splitting channels or
normalizing. If you’re interested here is the thread:

http://www.nabble.com/Batch-processing-audio-files-with-csound%28-%29-tf4040859.html#a11479708

I’m working on a little max patch that uses csound~ external for batch
processing, and of course there are no limitations as to how many channels
you have.

On os x Quattro is great for batch processing if you can afford to buy it,
very much worth it. The batch function on Quattro doesn’t actually rely on
any kind of graphic display:
