I need to process about 1,800 Audio File Recordings and am looking for a Free or Open Source program that runs on Windows, that can operate in Batch Mode in a standard windows interface (non-command line) to truncate/condense Silence and eliminate a single recurring background noise (a room fan on low setting) to enhance the sounds of a noisy neighbor who lives above me.
I suffer sleep deprivation from about 200 days of excessive noise made at hours of day and night. There's about 5 to 10 recordings per day, hence the approx. number of files is about 1,800 total, anywhere from 2 minutes to 10 minutes in length.
If you know open source or free software that can do this work, please reply/post response.
