SoXI - Sound eXchange Information, display sound file metadata
soxi [-V[level]] [-T] [-t|-r|-c|-s|-d|-D|-b|-B|-e|-a] infile1 ...
Displays information from the header of a given audio file or files.
Supported audio file types are listed and described in soxformat(7).
Note however, that soxi is intended for use only with audio files with
a self-describing header.
By default, as much information as is available is shown. An option
may be given to select just a single piece of information (perhaps for
use in a script or batch-file).
-V Set verbosity. See sox(1) for details.
-T Used with multiple files; changes the behaviour of -s, -d and -D
to display the total across all given files. Note that when
used with -s with files with different sampling rates, this is
of questionable value.
-t Show detected file-type.
-r Show sample-rate.
-c Show number of channels.
-s Show number of samples (0 if unavailable).
-d Show duration in hours, minutes and seconds (0 if unavailable).
Equivalent to number of samples divided by the sample-rate.
-D Show duration in seconds (0 if unavailable).
-b Show number of bits per sample.
-B Show the bitrate averaged over the whole file (0 if
-e Show the name of the audio encoding.
-a Show file comments (annotations) if available.
