Creates audio supercuts

Project Description

Audiogrep transcribes audio files and then creates “audio supercuts” based on search phrases. It uses [CMU Pocketsphinx]( for speech-to-text and [pydub]( to stitch things together.

Here’s some [sample output](

##Requirements Install using pip ` pip install audiogrep ` Install [ffmpeg]( with Ogg/Vorbis support. If you’re on a mac with [homebrew]( you can install ffmpeg with: ` brew install ffmpeg --with-libvpx --with-libvorbis ` Finally, install [CMU Pocketsphinx]( For mac users I followed [these instructions]( to get it working: ` brew tap watsonbox/cmu-sphinx brew install --HEAD watsonbox/cmu-sphinx/cmu-sphinxbase brew install --HEAD watsonbox/cmu-sphinx/cmu-sphinxtrain # optional brew install --HEAD watsonbox/cmu-sphinx/cmu-pocketsphinx `

##How to use it First, transcribe the audio (you’ll only need to do this once per audio track, but it can take some time) ` # transcribes all mp3s in the selected folder audiogrep --input path/to/*.mp3 --transcribe ` Then, basic use: ` # returns all phrases with the word 'word' in them audiogrep --input path/to/*.mp3 --search 'word' ` The previous example will extract phrase chunks containing the search term, but you can also just get individual words: ` audiogrep --input path/to/*.mp3 --search 'word' --output-mode word ` If you add the ‘–regex’ flag you can use regular expressions. For example: ` # creates a supercut of every instance of the words "spectre", "haunting" and "europe" audiogrep --input path/to/*.mp3 --search 'spectre|haunting|europe' --output-mode word ` You can also construct ‘frankenstein’ sentences (mileage may vary): ` # stupid joke audiogrep --input path/to/*.mp3 --search 'my voice is my passport' --output-mode franken `


audiogrep can take a number of options:

####–input / -i mp3 file or pattern for input

####–output / -o Name of the file to generate. By default this is “supercut.mp3”

####–search / -s Search term

####–output-mode / -m Splice together phrases, single words, fragments with wildcards, or “frankenstein” sentences. Options are: * sentence: (this is the default) * word * fragment * franken

####–padding / -p Time in milliseconds to add between audio segments. Default is 0.

####–crossfade / -c Time in milliseconds to crossfade audio segments. Default is 0.

####–demo / -d Show the results of the search without outputing a file
