The recording dialog in Mp3 Audio Editor also offers some advanced settings:

 

Recording without silence

 

If signal is below the Attack Level for more than Attack Time, beginning of that spot in the audio will be considered beginning of silence.

 

If signal is above the Release Level for more than Release Time, beginning of that spot in the audio will be considered end of silence.

 

Silence Definition

 

For very quiet high quality audio, the Attack Level and Release Level value will be lower (like -60dB). For noisier audio, the value may be much higher (like -30dB).

 

If audio is above this given threshold for more than the number of milliseconds given, audio will be considered valid, and not silence. Use higher values for Release Time to ignore short periods of audio (like clicks, static, or other noise). If this value is too high however (above 200ms), short words may be skipped.
