Delete the silence at the beginning and end of an audio file with SoX

shell

SoX It is a tool for Editing audio files via the command line in Linux. Some past projects will allow the use through GUI, but they were in time abandoned all and there remained only the command line (not that I mind).

Often the audio file is set to a silent too long beginning or end of the file. HE, as in my case, the files are queued in audio player, or on a CD the wait is nervous. SoX well as do virtually anything with audio files, It allows you to remove the silence in the input and output, returning a file ready to be queued or burn (and often much lighter original).
