I am using Audacity to record sound from webinar recordings. There could be few minutes of silence during the webinar.

I want to set up Audacity to stop recording

  • the best would be after let's say 1hr when the silence is longer than 5 mins. Because I do know how long the webinar is.
  • or just after x minutes of silence.

Is that possible to set up in the current version of Audacity (v2.0.3)? If not any other free sw offers such feature?
