No, looks like it is new filters.

Should I combine these 2 filters (silencedetect and silenceremove) or
I can solve my problem using only "silenceremove" filter? I need
delete absolute (not noise) digital silence only from beginning and
from the end of audio file (not from middle).

Could you please help me to create command line to do this?

Thanks in advance for your help!
