still dont get this splice thang

still dont get this splice thang


in order to bring out this podcast episode:

had to ask sox por doin its:

sox a.wav b.wav c.wav splice -q p1 p2

thang ..

but i acutually dont get what its doin :D

length(c.wav) = lenght(a.wav) + lenght(b.wav) - p2 * 2

seems to be the result


if p2 * 2 then error

is what i get

so i now have to make myself believe that the structure is somethang like the pic in the tweet below ..

can someone explain this better than what i think it is?
