I spent yesterday listening (thanks to a free 3-day trial of XM Radio over the internet) and recording (thanks to OpD2d, a direct-t0-disk audio recorder) the 12-hour Wall to Wall Sondheim Concert. The audio stream stopped a few times to buffer, resulting in silent pauses in the files I recorded. I’d like to strip out the internal silences, but all the software I’ve found just trims silence from the beginning and end of files. Anyone know of a (free) program that does that?
And while I’m trolling for software suggestions… I’m loving my Mac Mini, but I’m having trouble using it for web development because I haven’t found an OSX FTP program that works like WebDrive (which maps my webserver as a drive letter) on the PC. I know that TextWranger on the Mac can open and save text files through FTP, but it’s not the same as having a locally mounted FTP drive.
