auparse_get_field_str - Linux


auparse_get_field_str extracts a specific field from an AUParse record and returns it as a string. It’s commonly used in audio data processing and analysis for accessing specific metadata fields.


auparse_get_field_str(record, field)


  • record: The AUParse record to extract the field from.
  • field: The name of the field to extract.


Get the artist name from an audio file:

artist = auparse_get_field_str(record, "artist")

Extract the duration of a track:

duration = auparse_get_field_str(record, "duration")

Common Issues

  • Ensure that the record is a valid AUParse object.
  • Check if the field name is correct and corresponds to an existing field in the record.


Combine with auparse_read_file to extract fields from audio files:

import auparse

record = auparse.auparse_read_file("")
artist = auparse_get_field_str(record, "artist")
