Switch Questions

Tom Kaufman
 

Hello list: Am attempting to convert some files using Switch, but has been
a while and I don't exactly remember the procedure for doing this (used to
do it all the time) but as I said, it's been a while! How do I get a given
file into Switch: do I simply "copy and paste?" Or is there another way? I
used to know, but have just forgotten!

Hi André,
Wow sounds pretty weird. Smile
Yes a brain is definitely a complicated instrument.

Brian

I am in somewhat of a same situation although in my case it is muy brain
that does the pitch change.

Since my second cochlear implant I have lost all the frequencies below 100
hz. What now seems to happen is that my brain has transposed all the
frequencies below 100 hz to the range above that. I cannot really describe
the sound I get but it is definitely there! You can hear them as long as
they are not to crowded out by other frequencies in the middle range. Weird
business!

Regards
André

Hi Colin,
Thank you for replying.
I will give it a shot, and you are right an octave is quite a lot to move a
recording!

I could also use Sonar's Radius 2 but I'm not so familiar with adjusting
that specific plugin.

Greetings,

GoldWave will do the job.

There is a checkbox for tempo unchanged, check this for whatever you need,
say decrease by one octave, the sound is bound to be degraded slightly
because you are altering it's nature but the bird sound ought to be
acceptable.

It's in the effects menu and is very customizeable.

Something I observed while broadcasting with Backpack Studio

Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Hi,
Sorry if the below is old news to some people. I only discovered the twerk with Backpack Studio and wanted to alert users.
When broadcasting using Backpack Studio for IOS - iPhone or iPad - be sure that you turn Auto Ducking off - the function where Voiceover lowers other levels of sound to make itself heard.
If Auto Ducking is enabled and Voiceover is speaking then the level of your broadcast output drops.
The way around this it seems is to increase the volume of the VoiceOver output.
This will not have any effect on your project since Voiceover is not recorded or broadcast alongside your output.

Question about changing pitch without touching the tempo of an audio file

Brian Olesen
 

Hi folks,

I have a partially deaf friend, who would love to hear how some different
birds sounds, but her problem is that she can't hear the high pitched
frequencies of most birds.

She would love to hear them in the original tempo, but with a significantly
lowered pitch.

Wich tool will do this the best way, and do it without harming the original
feel of the sound too much?



Thanks in advance.

well, my wife is tickled, I am tickled, our kitty is tickled to watch TV, and our neighbors are . . . which? :)

Not since the days of the first push button TVS, or even earlier have we had, as blind persons access to all aspects of a TV before. That is how innovating this is since after the accessibility in the menu was turned on, all that is necessary is to know which button is which on the remote and you're in. So, I guess you could say I was pleased! :)

I think you meant to say Integrated Amp? Well actually we’re talking Surround-Sound receivers here.
I have a Denon AVR-X3400H and I bought this a couple of months before the arrival of the Denon AVR-X3500H.
As far as I know there are 2 main differences and whether you think these difference make the AVRX-3500H worth buying is a question that only you can answer.
I myself wish I could have waited the extra months. Unfortunately at the time I needed to replace my then AVR-2113 urgently as the whole device had crashed after an attempted firmware update and couldn’t be recovered.
So it was a clear choice for me at the time because everything in my lounge pretty much relies on the Surround-Sound receiver to function, replace the Receiver or go without Entertainment in the lounge.
Anyway back to the 2 choices you have outlined.
The AVR-X3500H has a Fono input stage and is Airplay II compatible.

accessible software for making video dvds?

goshawk on horseback
 

hello all,
does anyone know of any really accessible software for making standard video dvds? in other words, ones that will play in a standard dvd player.
as I have some downloaded tv series in video format, that I would like to make standard dvds out of, and some other video files that I would like to make a dvd from.
ideally, the software should be able to work with a range of video file formats, but I do have a video format converter program if this is not possible.
I'm using win7 ultimate 64bit, and either window-eyes or nvda.
