This is a simple program that reads cues or marks made by a digital recorder from a .WAV (BWF) file and exports them as a .txt file for import into Audacity.

Vaguely inspired by the findcues.py script from Audacity wiki.


findcues filename.wav

The program produces file named "filename.txt". Can accept multiple files:

findcues *.wav findcues file.wav anotherfile.wav

Can output into arbitrary .txt file:

findcues --output file.txt audio.wav

Note that custom output cannot be used with multiple inputs.

The program will abort export if the output file already exists. To overwrite the output, one may use corresponding flag:

findcues --replace file.wav

See also: findcues --help.


This program is provided as-is, use it at your own risk.
