Does anyone know how to extract (trim / crop-to) a 30-second fragment of a given mp3 file, say 4 minutes long? I am doing audio samples for CD tracks to preview on our website that sells music, and I have automated the process to do this automatically:
1. Load files in batch processing
2. Crop song file to 30-seconds (middle of the song)
4. Fade ends (in and out)
5. Resample to mono / 22 khz / etc.
6. Save sample file
The problem I have is, where the selection for step 2 occurs. I can't seem to tell Audition to "SELECT 30 SECONDS AT THE MIDDLE OF THE SONG"... and if the song is exactly/less than 30 seconds, selet entire song (very unlikely). I am currently using a manual (recorded on script creation) selection:
Selected: none at 0 scaled 9294336 SR 44100
cmd: Channel Both
Selected: 1764000 to 3750666 scaled 9294336 SR 44100
But this varies with the file length / sample freq, etc.
How can I tell Audition to select EXACTLY 30 seconds (or any other custom size I want) at the middle of the song, to ALWAYS produce 30-second files?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
