NAMESoXI - Sound eXchange Information, display sound file metadata
SYNOPSISsoxi [-V[level]] [-T] [-t|-r|-c|-s|-d|-D|-b|-B|-e|-a] infile1 ...
DESCRIPTIONDisplays information from the header of a given audio file or files. Supported audio file types are listed and described in soxformat(7). Note however, that soxi is intended for use only with audio files with a self-describing header.
- Set verbosity. See sox(1) for details.
- Used with multiple files; changes the behaviour of -s, -d and -D to display the total across all given files. Note that when used with -s with files with different sampling rates, this is of questionable value.
- Show detected file-type.
- Show sample-rate.
- Show number of channels.
- Show number of samples (0 if unavailable).
- Show duration in hours, minutes and seconds (0 if unavailable). Equivalent to number of samples divided by the sample-rate.
- Show duration in seconds (0 if unavailable).
- Show number of bits per sample.
- Show the bitrate averaged over the whole file (0 if unavailable).
- Show the name of the audio encoding.
- Show file comments (annotations) if available.
