audio_combine is a simple utility for combining multiple audio files together into larger multi-channel files.
Version: 1.00audio_combine is a simple tool for combining multiple audio files together into larger multi-channel files.
Operating System: Linux
For example, if you have 2 mono WAV files and you want a single stereo WAV file, you can use audio_combine to accomplish this.
Also included is audio_split, which does the reverse operation: given a single multi-channel audio file, it generates multiple mono audio files.
How to I run it?
A. From the command line, with the syntax:
./audio_combine outputFile inputFileA [inputFileB] [inputFileC] [...]
For example, to combine two mono files into a stereo file:
./audio_combine newStereoFile.wav oldMonoL.wav oldMonoR.wav
Channels in the output file will be populated with data from the input files in the same order that the input files were specified on the command line.
To do the opposite operation (e.g. split a stereo file into two mono files), use audio_split:
./audio_split inputFile outputFileA [outputFileB] [outputFileC] [...]
./audio_split oldStereoFile.wav newMonoL.wav newMonoR.wav
· You can combine up to 256 files at once (if your output audio format supports that many channels -- chances are it doesn't).
· All input files must have the same sample rate.
· All input files are not required to have the same length, but if they don't have the same length, then the output file will only be as long as the shortest input file and the other streams will be truncated. (You will be warned about that if it occurs).
