I have many folders each of which contains 125 or so brief wav files (1 - 4 seconds) with file names 001.wav, 002.wav ... n.wav. I want to create a long wav file for each folder that has the original files intercut with periods of silence equal to x times the length of the preceding individual source wav file. So, like, 001.wav + silence of length x times the length of 001.wav + 002.wav + silence of length x times the length of 002.wav + and so on. [more inside]
My Comcast feed and the MLB.com audio feed are about 30 seconds off. Unfortunately, the Comcast video is running 30 seconds behind the MLB.com audio. When I had DirecTV the audio was always about 1 minute behind, so it was easy to simply pause the TV until the audio caught up, then watch it off the DVR on a 1 minute delay synched to the audio feed. How can I achieve the same result pausing the audio stream via MLB.com? Linux solutions are best as my laptop runs the latest Ubuntu LTS. Android ok too if there is an app that does this that I haven't found. Please help, I just can't listen to Joe Buck and Tim McCarver for another game, let alone the entire World Series.
Using a laptop running Ubuntu Linux 12.04, I want to record three things at once: 1) video of my desktop, 2) video from a USB webcam, 3) audio from a USB microphone. Ideally I would like some setup which simultaneously starts all three recordings, and keeps them in sync, so that it will not be too painfully difficult to mix them later -- my eventual aim is to make a kind of "picture-in-picture" screencast. Is this feasible, and if it is, what's the best approach? (Free is nice, but if I can make this process smoother by paying less than a thousand dollars, I will happily pay.)

What's the deal with linux-rt? I know that it's Linux with realtime extensions, and that it's recommended for low-latency audio editing. I'm planning on doing some recording for a while (hopefully with something better than my built-in mic) and I'm wondering if apt-get install linux-rt will be more trouble than it's worth.

Linux audio: I don't get any audio in flash videos (i.e. Youtube) after listening to FLAC's and MP3's in Rythmbox (even after I close the program) until I reboot. Am I supposed to "free" the audio codecs after using them in one software? Linux Ubuntu 6.06, Mozilla Firefox, codecs installed by Automatix. Yes, am a newbie.
