Easy way to perfectly remove silence from Laserdisc PCM rip?

2 Replies, 4754 Views

Hello. I just started ripping the audio off some laserdiscs that have different and/or better mixes than later releases. I'm ripping the file in one session, and the problem I have is how to stitch the audio together when the laserdisc flips sides.

I'm using Reaper, which is awesome, and I know it has a silence detector, but quite frankly I'm not sure I trust it because it seems to use a gateway threshold and I'd prefer a tool that simply removes all zeros where there's no audio, and merges the PCM data into one file.

Has anyone come up with an easy workflow for this?

If you capture audio and video, my advice is to load the file into VirtualDub 2, and remove the unwanted frames between side flip; the audio will be subsequently cut perfectly.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

I took a different approach. Instead of needing to remove the silence, I just split the file at the side break and did my work that way. Worked perfectly.
