If the BWF Peak Envelope output which was suggested in the other thread does not match your demands and filter implementation is actually necessary I would prefer if the filter would attach the RMS value(s) as frame metadata instead of directly dumping to file. Frame metadata can then be re-

>> I still would prefer to have the value attached as frame metadata, then dumped into file via the existing "ametadata" filter. Even better would be to integrate the statistic value (if missing) into the "astats" filter.
>> If your concern is the output format of "ametadata" then some output format extension (CSV/JSON) needs to be discussed for ametadata/metadata.
>> If your concern is performance then please add some numbers. In my tests using an approx. 5 minutes input WAV file (48kHz, stereo) the run with "asetnsamples" was considerably faster than the run without (1.7s vs. 13.9s)
