SoXI(1)				Sound eXchange			       SoXI(1)

NAME
       SoXI - Sound eXchange Information, display sound	file metadata

SYNOPSIS
       soxi [-V[level]]	[-T] [-t|-r|-c|-s|-d|-D|-b|-B|-p|-e|-a]	infile1	...

DESCRIPTION
       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).

OPTIONS
       -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  unavail-
	      able).

       -p     Show estimated sample precision in bits.

       -e     Show the name of the audio encoding.

       -a     Show file	comments (annotations) if available.
