Way to skip gaps in audio?
« on: March 11, 2021, 07:05:27 pm »
Is there anyway that a method to skip between gaps in audio (Dark grey to light grey) can be implemented? This would be helpful for getting by large gaps (several hours sometimes) in the audio.

Clicking on the timeline is the only way to skip at this point.

One thing I've done mostly as a side hobby is downloaded the audio files for the loops directly from the NASA Audio Collection on, ran a noise removal algorithm in GoldWave to get rid of the warbling noise in the background produced by the tapes, and then a silence removal to get rid of the gaps. The result is a relatively seamless track that can be listened to through a multimedia player like VLC or AIMP. I could produce a step-by-step guide for doing this if need be.

Of course, this is not the same thing as skipping the files directly through the website, but I can imagine that being a general pain to program in.
