The Strip Silence command can be found under Region>Edit>Strip Silence. You must first select the track(s) or region(s) in which you would like to detect silence. Batch processing is possible by selecting multiple track or regions. Once the Strip Silence dialogue has been opened Mixbus will begin analysis on all selected tracks or regions (allow time based on CPU speed and track/region length). Once the analysis has completed the areas that have been determined to contain silence will be highlighted.
There are 3 adjustments available:
- Threshold: This sets the audio level for detecting silence and is adjustable by 1 dBFS increments. Any audio below the set threshold will be considered silence.
- Minimum length (in milliseconds, default =1000 (1 second)): Allows control of the shortest time period that will be considered silence.
- Fade Length (in samples, default =64): This setting adjusts the length of fades at the transitions of detected silence and detected audio.
