As far as I know there isn't anything available for Linux which has
the sole purpose of marking and cataloguing (.wav) sound file regions.
I don't know of anything on another platform which does it either.
I need to:
1) Look at and zoom in on mostly quite big wav files circa 1.3GB,
to find sections/regions which are particularly musical,
or informative, and mark and name them for later access.
Only a few fields of information would be necessary.
2) Compile a 'play list' of regions to be played, while displaying
configurable fields of the details entered.
That's it really, although I have some particular demands for controls
which would aid my work-flow. I've got used to using a really old Windows
program, which isn't really suitable for the job, but I manage. No JACK
ability there though of course.
I think it needs writing, if it is not already written. Anyone know
something like that?
Functionally; it would be a bit like a DVD authoring application and
I wondered if I should contact the authors of Bonobo or similar. Main
difference being source material could be anywhere on the file system.
Compilations could be prepared for writing to CD perhaps, but mainly -
it would be used to create compilations to play on the computer. Perhaps
Version 2 could even generate pleasant musical programs with just a few
hints from user. ;)
I don't have time to learn programming, but I do try to support those
who can write, and I'd do so if someone was willing to write it for me/us.
Any advice would be most appreciated, thanks.
