Help Needed for Behringer Audio Mixer x1622 USB & Recording With Goldwave

Philip Francis Anderson
 

Hello All



I'm new to this list and wondered whether anyone is currently using a
Behringer x1622 USB 12 channel mixer in conjunction with Goldwave on Windows
10 with NVDA?



My problem? Goldwave is not capturing sound via my microphone connected to
my Behringer.



The hardware is working since I am able to hear my voice through my
headphones while speaking.

I am also able to playback sound files in Goldwave through my Behringer
mixer.



Volume levels in both goldwave and windows are set to maximum until I can
achieve a result.



Under "Device Tab" in Goldwave, playback and record are both utilising USB
Audio Codek, the sound driver recommended for my Behringer.

Under Microphone, the quality is set to 44100hz /32 / shared.



In windows privacy settings, both Goldwave and microphone are enabled with
assigned permissions respectively.



If anyone has any solutions, please share.



Thank you in anticipation.



Cordially

Philip

Help finding fine converter

JOHN RIEHL
 

Hi. I have a bunch of video files (that contain audio) that I want to edit
in gold wave. Unfortunately, Gold Wave does not recognize this file type
when I try to open the files. Does anybody have any suggestions re how I can
convert these files to another file format so I can open and edit with Gold
wave, or is there another accessible editor that will work with this file
type?

Thanks.

John

Ah someone else already answered you Daran. But just to say ah that changes things. I thought it was a Blu-Ray you wanted to get. Never mind then it was TV.

What audio are you recording? if it's that like me you wana for grins and giggles listen to your favorite chapters of your Blu-Ray collection you may just as well try Any DVD HD to unlock said disk or disks and DVD Audio Extractor to extract said chaptors. Because no no sound card comess with HDMI in as far as I know. That's a video capture card. What are you recording from and what kind of sound card are you using? Because I just gave you the meh just do this and get out of the situation answer. But now to the hard answer to answer the question for future refrence. If you are recording from an AVR and it has it you could SPDIF from that sucker into your PC and bam digital audio. But yes just do the DVD Audio Extractor thing. Easyer, you'll get the full 5.1 or 7.1 if you wish, and no added flavor from the soundcard or AVR or TV or what ever.

Question Concerning JBL Flip 4 Speaker And Battery Life

Tom Kaufman
 

Hello list: Nearly two years ago, I bought a JBL Flip 4 speaker; is a
good-sounding speaker for its size and have used it a lot here of late!
When I first became aware of this speaker, I had heard that it would give up
to 12 hours of battery life! However, am finding now that it doesn't give
that much! The bad thing is that it gives no verbal warning when the
battery is getting low! Fortunately for me, I have enough vision that I can
see a red light blinking when the battery is starting to get near where the
speaker will shut off! My question is, can these batteries be replaced? Or
is it as I am suspecting: that thing is designed in such a way that there is
absolutely NO WAY to open it up and replace the battery? I have often just
run it with the speaker plugged into electric; could this caused it to lose
its battery life? Thanks for any info you may be able to provide!

In my case...especially since last September when I got new satellite dish
equipment, it's especially bad, for there's just no "getting away from the
noise and interference that...even the television set emits!

I was never able to pick up far away AM stations in the city .. maybe
sometimes late at night. It works much better out there a ways, such as
where my mum lives. Picking up stations from Chicago at 3 AM in the early
90s, even with all the faintness and hissing noise, was pretty cool.

Now though? I admit I just can use the internet to pick up stations from
*anywhere* and I haven't actually turned on a radio in a long time. AM
transmissions seem to have a potentially long range, but are easily wrecked
by the kind of noise caused by everything around the urban landscape. I can
only imagine how much worse it is now with all the domestic devices in one's
home that emit radio signals.

Tom,

Agreed completely. I had a sudden increase perhaps a month ago in the
interference I am getting on the AM band from my DSL service. The phone
company must have changed something either with the phone lines outside or
with the DSL settings. While I know there is always DSl interference along
the wires carrying the DSL signal, it is also getting radiated from the AC
lines as well. I can't figure out how it is getting into those circuits.

I have a tuner with one of those little square loops and I made a larger
loop on a piece of cardboard and added a length of cable so I could move it
around more. That really helped me escape some interference until this new
DSL problem started. I still like to look for long distance AM reception
especially during the winter evenings, and this interference really
decreases my ability to do that.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Georgina,

If I take my cordless phone and put it near an AM radio, I find that it
generates a good bit of digital noise across the entire AM band, but there
are oscillations that occur here and there that are stronger than the
general noise. I would guess that on his system, one of those stronger
oscillations happens to hit WBBM. Unfortunately, it is all a bunch of
guesswork on my part and there is a lot we don't know about his system. I
might be totally wrong. I am struggling with a problem with noise and
interference on the AM band in my house which is very hard to track down, so
there might be something more to this problem as well.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hello Steve,

Whoops. At least someone is there to put me right. Found it interesting that
other radio stations perhaps not on AM did not suffer in the same way.

Since the radio station is 780 KHZ, it is likely that the interference

not caused by the frequency used by the phone, but that it is getting
interference from the digital circuits in the phone. Usually this happens
if your radio is close to the answering system or that you have placed the
wireless headphones near your radio. If neither is the case, check to see
if the cords running to the answer machine might be passing close to your
radio. Gina is right that an external antenna probably would correct this,
but moving the answering machine or making sure your headphones are not near
the radio should help. If you keep your headphones in a charger when they
are not being used, check to be sure the cord to the charger does not run
close to the radio. Making sure the radio is plugged into a different
outlet from the answering machine or any headphone chargers might be worth
trying as well. If your radio has a separate square loop antenna, moving
that around can make a big difference as well.

I live in Minnesota but listen to WBBM occasionally, and I have heard
them
announce that they are also on FM on 105.9. You might be able to avoid this
by trying the FM frequency instead. I do not know if the coverage of the FM
frequency reaches you, though, but it might be worth checking.

Georgina,

If I take my cordless phone and put it near an AM radio, I find that it
generates a good bit of digital noise across the entire AM band, but there
are oscillations that occur here and there that are stronger than the
general noise. I would guess that on his system, one of those stronger
oscillations happens to hit WBBM. Unfortunately, it is all a bunch of
guesswork on my part and there is a lot we don't know about his system. I
might be totally wrong. I am struggling with a problem with noise and
interference on the AM band in my house which is very hard to track down, so
there might be something more to this problem as well.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hello Steve,
URRRRR, shows you how long since I listened and took note of the AM band.
Whoops. At least someone is there to put me right. Found it interesting that
other radio stations perhaps not on AM did not suffer in the same way.

Since the radio station is 780 KHZ, it is likely that the interference is
not caused by the frequency used by the phone, but that it is getting
interference from the digital circuits in the phone. Usually this happens
if your radio is close to the answering system or that you have placed the
wireless headphones near your radio. If neither is the case, check to see
if the cords running to the answer machine might be passing close to your
radio. Gina is right that an external antenna probably would correct this,
but moving the answering machine or making sure your headphones are not near
the radio should help. If you keep your headphones in a charger when they
are not being used, check to be sure the cord to the charger does not run
close to the radio. Making sure the radio is plugged into a different
outlet from the answering machine or any headphone chargers might be worth
trying as well. If your radio has a separate square loop antenna, moving
that around can make a big difference as well.

I live in Minnesota but listen to WBBM occasionally, and I have heard them
announce that they are also on FM on 105.9. You might be able to avoid this
by trying the FM frequency instead. I do not know if the coverage of the FM
frequency reaches you, though, but it might be worth checking.

If If I am listening to the Chicago station and the phone starts ringing,

Re: Maybe for this group or if not...where

Georgina,

Just to be clear, I don't intend on moving their wires. The routing of my DSL line was something they do if requested rather than making it available to all phone jacks. They also put in a higher quality cable to carry the DSL/phone signal and they did that to partly address my problem. I did complain once and had them out again and showed them the problem. Even though I showed interference on a local AM station, they saw some of my equipment and assumed I was being more fussy about AM reception than was reasonable. Your caution regarding moving their wires is a good one and I am careful of that. It probably is a choke problem or something that is not in their system directly.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hello,

I advised complaining not just because it is likely to be cheaper for you as the end user. But depending upon your contract. Such equipment is the property of those who provide you with the service. They are providing you with a substandard service and they are in breach of their contract with you.

By all means fit chokes yourself if it fixes it then fine. But remember if they call for some reason ensure you remove them otherwise you might be accused of causing the fault or damage to their property.

They are probably not bothered but just be mindful of such potential events. It is certainly worth taking issue with them. Arguing that when you disconnect the problem goes away. They cannot argue with that.

Good luck.

Re: Maybe for this group or if not...where

Steve Jacobson
 

Those are good suggestions and I am going to do just that. I am a little suspicious of my DSL modem because there are no chokes on the cord to the AC adapter. It is strange. If I put an AM radio near the heavy ground wire that is connected from the circuit breaker box to the water pipe where it enters the house, I get almost as much noise on AM as I do when I put the radio near the line carrying the DSL signal. That ground wire is nowhere near a phone wire. I have unplugged my DSL modem stopping the internet connection and checked the heavy ground wire and there is very little additional noise then. I thought maybe what I was hearing was other noise on the ground wire, but it is definitely the DSL signal. I have been happy with DSL other than that.

Steve Jacobson

Hello,

It wouldn't hurt getting a couple of those ferrite chokes and putting them on the lines. If on a power line put it on the cord as close as possible to the power source. You may have noticed that the more expensive USB cables, audio lease and power supplies will have a ferrite choke on them. I had a buzz with my AllStar MicroHub. I had a ferrite choke that I think was on a Decktalk Express serial cable. So I opened it out and wrapped the cable about 2 turns and closed it back together. Because the thin wire wasn't gripped I didn't think it would work. But it did very well.

I have a tuner with one of those little square loops and I made a larger loop on a piece of cardboard and added a length of cable so I could move it around more.

Georgina,

If I take my cordless phone and put it near an AM radio, I find that
it generates a good bit of digital noise across the entire AM band,
but there are oscillations that occur here and there that are stronger
than the general noise. I would guess that on his system, one of
those stronger oscillations happens to hit WBBM. Unfortunately, it is
all a bunch of guesswork on my part and there is a lot we don't know
about his system. I might be totally wrong. I am struggling with a
problem with noise and interference on the AM band in my house which
is very hard to track down, so there might be something more to this problem as well.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hello Steve,
URRRRR, shows you how long since I listened and took note of the AM band.
Whoops. At least someone is there to put me right. Found it
interesting that other radio stations perhaps not on AM did not suffer in the same way.

Re: Maybe for this group or if not...where

It is back interference from the modern switching power supplies. We used to use Transformers to render different voltages for the radio/television etc., but since the early 90s, we use fancy transistors to chop up the line voltage into little time segments to get lower voltage. The noise we get is from those transistors which generate incredible peaks, valleys, and harmonics. Some of the signal comes back down the plug and wire and some of it is radiated. So it's always a challenge to damp it out. There a good thing, however, or wall warts and laptop power cables would have to be a lot bigger and heavier.

There are things called line chokes which are comprised of a ferrous metal hoop through which you can wind a line cord and it will help to dampen down interference coming back up the power cable. They're not very expensive.

Re: Maybe for this group or if not...where

Hello,

It wouldn't hurt getting a couple of those ferrite chokes and putting them on the lines. If on a power line put it on the cord as close as possible to the power source. You may have noticed that the more expensive USB cables, audio lease and power supplies will have a ferrite choke on them. I had a buzz with my AllStar MicroHub. I had a ferrite choke that I think was on a Decktalk Express serial cable. So I opened it out and wrapped the cable about 2 turns and closed it back together. Because the thin wire wasn't gripped I didn't think it would work. But it did very well.
Very useful to have some kickingarond. Be careful though, I just brought some and they are not hinged.

Hello Steve,
URRRRR, shows you how long since I listened and took note of the AM band.
Whoops. At least someone is there to put me right. Found it interesting that
other radio stations perhaps not on AM did not suffer in the same way.

Since the radio station is 780 KHZ, it is likely that the interference is
not caused by the frequency used by the phone, but that it is getting
interference from the digital circuits in the phone. Usually this happens
if your radio is close to the answering system or that you have placed the
wireless headphones near your radio. If neither is the case, check to see
if the cords running to the answer machine might be passing close to your
radio. Gina is right that an external antenna probably would correct this,
but moving the answering machine or making sure your headphones are not near
the radio should help. If you keep your headphones in a charger when they
are not being used, check to be sure the cord to the charger does not run
close to the radio. Making sure the radio is plugged into a different
outlet from the answering machine or any headphone chargers might be worth
trying as well. If your radio has a separate square loop antenna, moving
that around can make a big difference as well.

I live in Minnesota but listen to WBBM occasionally, and I have heard them
announce that they are also on FM on 105.9. You might be able to avoid this
by trying the FM frequency instead. I do not know if the coverage of the FM
frequency reaches you, though, but it might be worth checking.

Best regards,

Evening all.

This is a audio related question, but has to do with a certain radio
station and a wireless cell phone.


I live North of Chicago Il. and listen to a ceertain powerful all news
station on AM (WBBM 780). We have a phone answering system with 3 wireless
headsets.

If If I am listening to the Chicago station and the phone starts ringing,
usually for the wife, a loud whisteling noise happens and stays there till
the call is finished. This only happens on this one station . I have tried
unplugging radio, the phone system, but no change. If I change the radio
station to another, all is well. I have tried moving the direction of radio,
it is a digital one, with nothing any different.

I am really sorry to ask this group about my issue, but it is audio
related. If not for this group, can someone , maybe, give me direction on
where to turn??

Thanks,

Morey Worthington

Steve and list: It's amazing to think of just how many things we have
around the house that generate noise; things that we "have" to have to help
us function, such as our phones (cordless or otherwise) chargers,
modems...etc.! My cable modem really reeks habic with my AM radio; my
stereo system is back here; so is my modem! So there's not a lot I can do
about that! Problem is that this modem definitely does create noise on the
AM band! So since I can't pick up and move my stereo, there's just not a
lot I can do about it! I can position that little antenna that is hooked
into my stereo and hold it there with my hand, thus, it does help with the
noise! Problem is, as soon as I remove my hand, then it goes right back to
the position where it picks up the noise, so there's just no real "getting
away from it!"

Georgina,

If I take my cordless phone and put it near an AM radio, I find that it
generates a good bit of digital noise across the entire AM band, but there
are oscillations that occur here and there that are stronger than the
general noise. I would guess that on his system, one of those stronger
oscillations happens to hit WBBM. Unfortunately, it is all a bunch of
guesswork on my part and there is a lot we don't know about his system. I
might be totally wrong. I am struggling with a problem with noise and
interference on the AM band in my house which is very hard to track down, so
there might be something more to this problem as well.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson
