SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

sfinfo prints information about the specified audio files, including file format, sample rate, duration, and audio data format.

The file formats currently supported by sfinfo are AIFF, AIFF-C, NeXT/Sun .snd/.au, WAVE, Berkeley/IRCAM/CARL Sound File, AVR, Amiga IFF/8SVX, Sample Vision, Creative Voice File, NIST SPHERE, and Core Audio Format.

OPTIONS

--reporterror, -r

Print an error message if any of the specified files are not recognized as valid audio files.
