Use goldwave for changing wav to pcm 16bit using command lin

Post by yash-crisp » Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:44 am

Hi,

How can I convert a wav files codec to PCM 16 bit using just the command line, I can't find docs or reference to guide me through.

I've never used GoldWave that way but look up Batch Processing in the user manual.

Or if you like command line programs try SoX.

The thing is I have a wav file of a call center whose mediainfo is :

Code: Select all

ion@aurora:~/Inbound$ mediainfo 48401-3405-48403--18042018170000.wav 
General
Complete name                            : 48401-3405-48403--18042018170000.wav
Format                                   : Wave
File size                                : 327 KiB

Overall bit rate                         : 10.7 Kbps

Audio

Codec ID                                 : A100

Bit rate                                 : 10.7 Kbps

Stream size                              : 327 KiB (100%)
What I wanna do is convert that file to 16bit PCM but ffmpeg and sox fails but Goldwave does it pretty easily.

This is a call center recordings.

Can you help with this issue?

If you can open the files in GoldWave, then you can set up a Batch Processing preset to convert the file to Wave with "PCM 16 bit, mono" attributes. You can then use that preset on the command line. See the Command Line section in the help/manual for details ('-process").
