This script will make a directory "mod" and put the modified files in that directory

  • mkdir mod;for mp3 in $(ls -1 --color=none *.mp3); do sox -S "${mp3}" -b 16 -c 1 -C 64 "mod/${mp3}_mod.mp3" bandpass 1200 1600h rate 22050 norm; done

on my system i made an alias

  • alias audiobook_improve_voice='mkdir mod;for mp3 in $(ls -1 --color=none *.mp3); do sox -S "${mp3}" -b 16 -c 1 -C 64 "mod/${mp3}_mod.mp3" bandpass 1200 1600h rate 22050 norm; done'
