If the path contains a space you might want to use double quote like

"X:\Folder Name\File name.wav"

Thank you VERY much ! That woks (macOS Mojave)

I created a finder action to batch normalise samples:

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
for file in "$@"
	sox $file outfile.wav --norm=-0.1 && mv -f outfile.wav $file done

but there is a problem when the path contains empty space :/ Still need to find a solution for this.

Cheers Hermann
