Sound Directions: Digital Audio Preservation and Access for Global Audio Heritage

Harvard Sound Directions Toolkit

The Harvard Sound Directions Toolkit consists of a large number of command line interface tools, each of which is targeted to a very specific application. Command line tools are initiated by typing commands directly into a terminal window and specifying an input file, an output file and the appropriate options. You can think of these tools as the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle with very regular shapes. Through scripting these can be pieced together into multiple configurations to generate different automated workflows. See Appendix 5 of the publication Sound Directions: Best Practices for Audio Preservation, available on this website, for a complete listing of the tools in the Toolkit.
