Hi Kalyan,
For this sort of task, consider using audioDatastore.
For example, here is the code to point to a number of audio files, and compute the max sample from each file:
pathToFiles = fullfile(pwd,'toolbox','audio','samples');
ads = audioDatastore(pathToFiles, IncludeSubfolders=true);
% The metric I want to compute
myVals = zeros(1,length(ads.Files));
index = 1;
while hasdata(ads)
fprintf('Progress: %f percent complete\n',ads.progress*100)
x = read(ads);
myVals(index) = max(x(:));
index = index+1;
If you have Parallel Processing Toolbox, there are ways to accelerate the operation by partionining the datastore over several workers. You can refer to examples about the partition method for that pattern.
