havremunken Posted August 22, 2019 Share Posted August 22, 2019 Hi there,I have been using Mumble (Murmur server on Ubuntu with DigitalOcean, various clients on Windows, Mac and phone/tablet) for years for recording a podcast. The primary reason is that Mumble is the only app I've found that gives me files which properly sync up; This makes post processing and editing much easier.However, I would love to be able to do one thing - to have a script, command etc. to have Mumble store a "marker" in the wav files we end up with. I am not sure exactly how these markers are stored (I am not familiar with the wav file format in intimate detail), but when I use for instance Adobe Audition to edit, I can save a .wav file with markers in it, and they will be there even if I open the wav file on another computer. So I am guessing there is a somewhat "standard" way of doing this, accepting that I might be entirely wrong about this.So what I would love to see is some sort of command, or even GUI element, that would allow me to set a marker, that is stored in the recorded wav file.Bonus 1: I could be able to enter a "label", marker name. This could be "Segment start", "Edit point", "Participant burped", "Episode end", that sort of thing.Bonus 2: I could choose if the marker was only created in my local ("Recorder") file, or also in the local recording of the other participants.Why does #2 matter? Well, in order to have the best possible audio quality, we have all participants record multichannel locally. Then they upload their local ("Recorder") audio files to me. Now I have a sync challenge - since audio boards and computers have slightly different timing, my local recording of the remote users will be slightly longer or shorter than their local recording. I can "stretch" them in Audition and sync this up manually based on the waveforms, but if I could tell Mumble to place a marker ("Episode start", and "Episode end") in each of the participants local "Recorder" file, that job would be MUCH easier. I realize network latency means this wouldn't be nanosecond precise, but it would be good enough for a talking head kind of podcast.I don't know if this is at all feasible - could it be done? Or would it require adding functionality to the Mumble client itself?Thanks for any input on this! Really loving Mumble for the audio quality and excellent features!
