Needed this. Thanks a lot, didnt know recording silence would be such a challange.

Perfect for keeping my bluetooth le headset awake for more than 15 seconds while doing language practice!

This song changed my life with a simple line! " was so inspiring!

Used (as file 000) in the mp3 player when changing folders (playing a file from the folder is required to actually implement the folder change).
Good tip! - Joseph SARDIN

Exactly what i was searching for to put a pause between my audios, thank you very much!

Great for fnf charting when you do not have a voice file!

Windows notifications are so annoying but this helps keep it less anoying without sound, thank you so much!

I really liked it, it was kind of quiet though, can you make a louder version of this?
:D - Joseph SARDIN

Minute of silence does sound like it=

I was having an issue where a notification wouldn't stop going off and no matter what i did it wouldn't stop. replacing the sound with silence was the only way. god bless you sir.

Favorite song ever, thanks for introducing me to a new genre!
