>Hello all,
>I am working on field recording / documentary sound art project,
>documenting crowd sound at the last matches to be played at Coventry
>City Football Club. In part an informal investigation into semiotics
>of football crowd sound, the project focuses on the analysis,
>contextualisation and presentation of these recordings to create
>I am labelling / categorising my recordings in CoolEditPro, which
>allows me to insert markers at points in audio files & to add a
>brief text description for each marker (about 120 characters).
>This is fine for the moment, but ultimately I want to add much more
>detailed description to the files, which will later be added to
>searchable audio database.
>So... to the point... Does anyone know of any software (preferably
>PC platform) that would allow me to add text tags / metadata to
>audio files, without restrictions on the number of characters?
>Perhaps there is some open-source software out there which would enable this?
>(Please note that this needs to be text associated to the audio
>files themselves, not to positions in the timeline of a sequencer
>window, such as in Logic).
>All & any ideas / info much appreciated! Best, Duncan
