I have sleep apnea and want to search large audio files for my snoring. what program would I use and any other tips would be great.
Moving this discussion to the Audition forum.
VTX1300C Audition is the sound editing program included with your Creative Cloud Membership. The users in this forum may have some additional Audition specific tips or an alternate workflow which you can utilize.
Snoring is one thing; Apnea is another. Be much easier to see snoring on the waveform, just by looking at it, but apnea is going to be harder to detect, I think.
Presumably the apnea is happening when the snoring stops. It might be easier to see the patterns in the Spectral view in Audition and therefore to see when they stop.
Possibly - anyway, I reckon that Spectral view will give you the best results, regardless.
