Sox Install sox

With the Sox audio processing tool we also get a player (play) that comes with a variety of options, including the possibility to trim playback to a given position in a file:

play filename trim mm:ss =mm:ss

Note that the = before the second time time says that we count from the beginning of the file. If omitted the second time gives the duration of the trimmed segment.
