adding silence to audio files, notx Debian Questions

With wedit, take these steps:

At a prompt, type "wedit filename.wav"

When the clip is available, type a plus sign to go to the 2nd floor.

On the 2nd floor, type the command wait 3

Then type the command save

Type qt

Repeat the above for each file. When you type the save command, you
will be warned if you are overwriting the original file. Type the
letter o to overwrite, anything else creates a unique filename.

If that does not work, or if you have too many files to make it
feasible, let me know and I'll outline a sox procedure to do it.
