Hello! I'm using Sound Forge Pro v10.0c, and have been very successfully using the batch converter to process thousands of files to create uniform normalization, noise gate, and silence at the beginning and end of tracks.
My files are all spoken word tracks (they are audio tracks that support a reading program).
My current project includes about 700 files, each with roughly 10-15 sentences in them. I need to change the amount of silence between all sentences in my files to make them uniform. Most of the files currently have between .5 sec and 1.5 sec between each of them. I need to make it a uniform 1 second between each. I can easily use the Auto Trim feature to TRIM the space down to a uniform amount of silence. But I can't find a way to ADD silence in an automated way, except for wherever the cursor is, or at the start or end of the file.
One of the Auto Trim features creates regions, and I thought I could maybe automatically add silence at the start or end of all regions of a file, but I can't find a way to do this. I'm sure there must be a method, I just can't figure it out.
I'm stumped. Any suggestions for how I can automate this? Does SF Pro 11 or 12 offer any additional functionality that might accommodate this need?
Thank you for any ideas!!
