       SoXI - Sound eXchange Information, display sound file metadata


       soxi [-V[level]] [-T] [-t|-r|-c|-s|-d|-D|-b|-B|-p|-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 (0 if not applicable).

       -B     Show the bitrate averaged over the whole file (0 if unavailable).

       -p     Show estimated sample precision in bits.

       -e     Show the name of the audio encoding.

       -a     Show file comments (annotations) if available.
