My previous post on Wildlife Acoustics attracted the attention of the owner of the company, Ian Agranat. Although Agranat didn’t agree with my critique, at least it seems my post was enough to make some changes in WA:
- They published the command-line code for the wac2wav converter
- They published the definition of the metadata the SM3 adds to audio files
This is a move in the right direction.
Installing in Ubuntu
To install the wac2wav utility in Ubuntu, I have posted a script at Github. You only need gcc by installing the build-essential package.
