I need a 35 second .wav file of silence.  It's to fill a spot at the front of a DVD slideshow.  I have music for it but the software I use doesn't let me start the sound at a predetermined spot.  It just starts playing whatever is on the audio list as soon as the slideshow begins and I want a noiseless intro.

I don't have a wav file editor here at the office or I'd do it me own self.  I could also run home and do it but that would take a bit.  Since you bunch of genii could probably do it in a split second, I'll bug you instead.  grin

Thanks in advance!

Never mind.  Figure out I could do it with Media Recorder.

Emailed one to you. If you want a higher fidelity recording of silence, let me know.  laugh

Silence is golden ... in Dolby 5.1 Surround.

Expect a call from the RIAA. I hear John Cage is big about going after people that copy his music without permission.

About that simple in Windows Media Recorder.  Hit the Record button, wait 35 seconds, stop, and save.

If you run linux you could use arecord

Code:
arecord -d 10 </dev/zero >silence.wav

There is probably an even leeter way to make it using only shell builtins.
