Not what you want, but using Ardour's automation, gain curves,
etc. combined with the 'export' facility amounts to some form
of scripting. I don't know of any command line tool that would
allow the same. If you want to apply some process on an audio
file from position A to B, the basic problem is to determine
A and B. Having a view on the actual waveform helps a lot to
do that. The only alternative I see would be some command line
player that allows to define markers, also offers some 'preview'
facilities such 'play from T - N seconds to T', 'play N seconds
starting at T', 'move T by N milliseconds', etc. etc., and then
offers some convenient way to store such information for later
use by off-line processing. I'd be interested to have such a
thing as well, but it takes a lot of programming to make it.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
