Subject: Reason for sox mix restriction to two or more input files?
Date: Fri, 9 Aug 2019 21:42:57 +0200
Message-ID: <66ca46e2-92b8-a920-9b71-52e89ac5c033@gmx.de> (raw)

Dear all,


I am using sox for automatic, scripted file generation.

One step is a mix of several input files.  It may happen
that - by configuration - only a single input file remains
for that mixing step.

This cannot be handled by sox, because sox _requires_
at least two input files and quits with the message
   "Not enough input filenames specified"

I understand that at least one input file is necessary
(for finding the target length, sample rate etc.), but
why does sox fail when mixing a single input file?


          Best regards,

                   Thomas
