Thanks again. I managed to get it to work
   -filter_complex "[0:a]abitscope=r=24000/1001[a]" -map "[a]"
"[0:a]", even though there's only 1 audio stream. Oh, well.

Unfortunately, 'abitscope' doesn't do anything useful. Just pictures of six bands that look like 
Excel, and no measurements. Useless.
