What's that the LS-P2? yes it's actually more so. You can actually set the date and time yourself. Olympus finally contracted that british lady to say the numbers and things. I don't get why they d

idn't in the first place but oh well there it is. There's also the DM720 for consumers that is also as accessible.

Tom,

The best unit to replace your old recorder is LS-P2 which you can read about
on the page:
https://www.olympus.com.au/Products/audio/Sound-(Music-Field)/LS-P2/Overview

The list price is shown as $179 but I'm sure that if you look around you
will find it cheaper.

Don't let the hype on the web page fool you. This is a small unit that will
easily fit in a shirt pocket and is, for the most part, simple to use.
You'd better make that a shirt pocket with a button down flap because unless
you wrap the P2 in a tissue, it will slip out when you bend over. Better
still, buy a Gutman wind screen for it.

It is the replacement for the LS-14 and, like the LS-14, has voiced
menus.Bob Nelson

Hello Norma and list: I sure wish I knew how to navigate EBay;
unfortunately that is something I've never learned to work! I'd like to
find at least something that works the same as the DS-40 (or DS-50) someone
posted info to another device (and I do intend to check it out as well) if I
do end up going the route of EBay, I may lean toward the DS-50 as my
girlfriend does have one; I've heard a recording that she made with it...and
it seemed to record a little cleaner than what my DS-40 did! Ideally I'd
love to find my DS-40, but I've about given up on the idea of it still being
here, although I haven't a clue as to how it disappeared! But thanks to the
suggestions I have seen so far!
Much appreciated!

Sample Rate Jeopardy!Intro Test

Smiling?
 

Here is a Sample Rate Jeopardy!Intro Test that will hopefully allow the
listener to very easily determine for themselves what sounds better to them,
a 8Kilohertz sample rate file, as compared to a 12KHz file, 16KHz file, a
22, a 24, a 32KHz file. It only goes to the sample rate of 44.1KHz other
than the source material file. so from 8KHz to 44.1KHz and then there are
also 3 .WAV files. One this source material, and the other two are just
showing the different sounds with different sample rates even in and with 0
compression .WAV files. One is 8bit and the other 16bit at 48KHz. The source
file is 16bit stereo at 48KHz with the bit rate at 1536kbps and the levels
fluctuating towards the end is kept in to assist in seeing what the sample
rate can drastically change/effect.



This is just me giving different sample rates with each of the 10 individual
sample rate test files. This will hopefully clearly allow each of you to
hear the significance of just changing the sample rate. Something that I am
sure most of you are entirely unaware of which is understandable. Listen to
each of the files and see when it truly comes clearer and what items might
become diminished what levels are best for your individual ears. at least
which levels you seem to find best because they are going to vary from
person to person without a doubt. The sample rates vary, but the bit rate
does not. Other than the .WAV files it's all at 32kbps (kilo bits per
second) .MP3 format.



If I had to choose which one would I prefer? The source material of course
otherwise, number six. The 32KHz at 32kbps sounds the best to my individual
ears again, second to the source file, but the fourth file up to the sixth
file sound decent to me and obviously all of the .WAV files sound superior
smiles and thanks for asking.



And it is named Jeopardy! Intro simply because this is what the 20 second
file actually is, just part to the beginning of Jeopardy. I was editing a
episode when I thought that this would be a decent thing to put together
that could literally allow people to see for themselves what sounds better
or worse. So I went ahead and put it together. Hopefully it turns out to be
a real ear opener and allow more of you to see what just changing the mere
sample rate alone within a given file may truly accomplish.



Beautiful Times to both you and yours and, Merry Christmas.

So, any ideas, anyone?

Re: Playing from PC to HiFI Amplifier / speakers.

Hello P,

if you are in the uk, take a look at the sonneteer products.

There is the bard, which connects via usb. The receiver connects to
your pre-amp.
There are alternatives in other countries for sure, so you will need to
look if outside the UK.

Alternative, a bbluetooth system would do the trick, but the bard
devices are truly HI fidelity. Better by far, and they should be for
the asking price.

Re: my problem with Goldwave

Colin Howard
 

Greetings,

You have cue points so use these to split the file, saving them in .mp3,
defaults to 192kbps but if live piano recordings, suggest 256kbps or higher!

You can save and rename after in a folder of your choice, as the split
offers default names.

my problem with Goldwave

vinny Samarco
 

Hi,
Goldwave has been my editor of choice for about the last ten years. I use it either to make piano cds of my playing, or to digitize cassettes.
I always record files in the wave format, however, when I try to save them as mp3 files, I continually run into the problem of the q points for my track divisions. Sometimes I have been able to get around this by using batch files.
I am told that if I use audacity, it is a lot easier to convert wave files to mp3. I haven’t yet learned audacity, and have hesitated to do so befcause of having to learn so many different programs of new technology these days. My 70-year-old brain kind of goes into overload, if you know what I mean.
I would prefer storing everything in mp3 for saving space, but I am not sure what the best way of this is in gw. Therefore, I have been biting the proverbial bandwidth bullet and saving everything in wav format for now. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. Sorry for the length of this post.
Vinny


Re: Looking for Audio Editor Simpler Than GoldWave

 

All right, in that case, Goldwave is your best bet, it is not hard to use and can do lots of things.

BTW, I use 64K bitrate and 44100 sample rate on my online radio station and the sound is acceptable, but of course, most of our 200 programs are original home-recorded talk shows.

64K bitrate is the minimum you should use for 44100 sample rate, for 56K bitrate you should use 20050 sample rate.

It is important to us to use as little bandwidth as possible, consistant with good sound, not for the sake of our server which has enough RAM, but for the sake of the listeners, many of which have precarious connections.

Best,

Humberto

Thanks for that, but as I mentioned to Steve, I need to change the encoding

with GoldWave easily enough. It's some of its other functions that I can't
seem to master, and at the price, I'm not sure it's worth it for the little

Hello all,

I am a little confused and admittedly I have not read this thread from the
beginning, but by merge I understand putting a sound on top of another, in
the case of Voice Over by ducking the underlying sound, otherwise not, but
by joining I understand putting one sound after another, even in a chain of
different sounds, each in its own file.

If the latter, it is very easy to do from the command line without any loss
of quality. Suppose you have the folder c:\ebook1\ and in it you have many
files, named 01.mp3, 02.mp3 and so on ad infinitum. In that case:

Windows-R opens the Run menu
Cmd and Enter, then type:
Copy /b c:\book1\*.mp3 c:\book1.mp3

There you will have all the MP3 files of the book joined into a single file
without loss of quality.

The /b switch will make it a binary copy.

HTH,

Humberto

Re: Looking for Audio Editor Simpler Than GoldWave

Evan Reese
 

Thanks for that, but as I mentioned to Steve, I need to change the encoding of music files that I merge, (is that not the right word?), which I now do with GoldWave easily enough. It's some of its other functions that I can't seem to master, and at the price, I'm not sure it's worth it for the little file manipulation that I do.

Hello all,

I am a little confused and admittedly I have not read this thread from the beginning, but by merge I understand putting a sound on top of another, in the case of Voice Over by ducking the underlying sound, otherwise not, but by joining I understand putting one sound after another, even in a chain of different sounds, each in its own file.

If the latter, it is very easy to do from the command line without any loss of quality. Suppose you have the folder c:\ebook1\ and in it you have many files, named 01.mp3, 02.mp3 and so on ad infinitum. In that case:

Windows-R opens the Run menu
Cmd and Enter, then type:
Copy /b c:\book1\*.mp3 c:\book1.mp3

There you will have all the MP3 files of the book joined into a single file without loss of quality.

The /b switch will make it a binary copy.

HTH,

Humberto

Foobar does merging? That's a new one on me.


MP3Mate's strong suit is that when merging files, it does not re-encode
them.

I don't think I'll bother getting another program just to merge files
if I can do it easily with GoldWave without having to buy it.

If you're looking for a merge-split program, MP3Mate is a good choice.

That's pretty much it, although I guess I should have added that I
also need to merge files once per month. I don't really need anything
else to do that though because I do use GoldWave for that and it's
very easy.

If that's so, then yes, MP3DC is a perfect fit. I guess I got stuck on
the word "editor".

Certainly
it may be that Goldwave can do more things, but if I understood the
original
post correctly, he wants to cut things from files and adjust volume
(MP3
does what is required here and you've gotta love the price!

Ahh, well, then I can't use it. I merge songs from record albums into one single file for playing on an Internet station. The files are originally in one of two formats, 256K MP3 or 320K MP3, but the guy who runs the station wants them in 128K MP3, so they have to be reencoded, which I did with Foobar and now do with GoldWave.
