Name | Version: Remove Silence 1.1
Author: MatanZohar
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: 1.1: fixed tempo issue

Remove silence is a max patch that lets you automatically remove silence from audio clips*.

CHOP - deletes the silent portions of the audio clip.

SPLIT - mutes the silent portions of the audio clip.

TRIM - deletes the silent portions from the beginning and end of audio clips.

The threshold setting determines the maximum volume of the silence to remove.

The padding settings control how many samples to leave at the beginning and end of each segment. Their combined sum determines the minimum number of samples of silence to chop. Lower settings on both can result in long processing times on long audio clips.

The Auto setting multiplies or divides the end padding depending on the length of the audio clip.

You can put it on your master or anywhere in your project. All buttons and settings are mappable.

*Note that for warped and/or looped audio clips, it will automatically turn off looping and warping before removing silence.

This is great in theory. But I bought it, and when I try to run it on a single ~65min dialogue track, it pinwheels and freezes Ableton for over an hour without seeming to do anything, unfortunately. In a single track project on an M1 Macbook Pro.
Two problems with this device:

- If you use even a medium threshold e.g. -50dB, it creates tons of tiny little clips.This can be easily fixed with a "minimum clip length" setting.
- Cannot process more than one clip at a time. Can you make it work on multiple clips, i.e. let me select multiple clips, hit "Chop" and it should loop through the clips. Right now it's a bit of a pain to process one clip at a time.
I cannot download the device!
