I need a way in which I can play an audio file in the terminal, and tell it from what time step it should start from?..

Example could be to start the audio file from 00:10:00... is that possible?


Sox comes with the play command which takes the same arguments as sox. These include the trim effect which can specify a starting position. Effects come after the filename. So you can do, for example,

play myfile.mp3 trim 10:00
