I've done a ton of recordings with sounds separated by (relative) silence. I've been busy working on a patch to split these files up into the individual sounds it contains. I already figured that completely automatic silence detection is a bridge too far for me.
In stead, I'm looking to create a patch in which the user can quickly identify and select the different sounds from within a waveform~-like UI. These sounds will then be sent to a silence trimmer, so extracting the sounds doesn't have to be very accurate.
I've been playing around with waveform~ (which seems like the only way to go?). However, the user can only make one selection at a time with that object. Ideally I'd like to have a patch in which the user can easily zoom in/out on different areas of the file, and make multiple selections to extract.
I'd love to hear any approaches to better meet my project requirements. Thanks a lot :)
