NAME

SoXI − Sound eXchange Information, display sound file metadata

SYNOPSIS

soxi [−V[level]] [−T] [−t|−r|−c|−s|−d|−D|−b|−B|−p|−e|−a] infile1 ...

DESCRIPTION

Displays 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.

By default, as much information as is available is shown. An option may be given to select just a single piece of information (perhaps for use in a script or batch-file).

OPTIONS

−V

Set verbosity. See sox(1) for details.

−T

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.

−t

Show detected file-type.

−r

Show sample-rate.

−c

Show number of channels.

−s

Show number of samples (0 if unavailable).

−d

Show duration in hours, minutes and seconds (0 if unavailable). Equivalent to number of samples divided by the sample-rate.

−D

Show duration in seconds (0 if unavailable).

−b

Show number of bits per sample (0 if not applicable).

−B

Show the bitrate averaged over the whole file (0 if unavailable).

−p

Show estimated sample precision in bits.

−e

Show the name of the audio encoding.

−a

Show file comments (annotations) if available.
