Re: Trying To Convert File To MP3

My understanding is tha tyou can't do any trimming or editing of an mp3 file. So you need to convert it to a .wav file then do your trimming then convert it to an mp3 file.

Okay...so if I'm understanding you correctly, I need to convert this MP4 to WAB first; then convert that WAB file to MP3...is this correct?

Hello,

You are working with 2 lossy formats. You should convert to wav or another lossless format make your cuts etc then convert to mp3. Because you might not know it but this is what switch would have been doing in the background I am guessing that something wasn’t carried across to the mp3 file. This will cut down on the number of downward conversions. Which is important because each conversion further detail is lost, hence their name lossy formats.

Hi. Here's what I'm unsuccessfully trying to do:

I've extracted audio frrm a larger file and used the control-P command to
put that audio segment into a separate window. I move to that window and
go
to the end of the audio segment, where I want to add some more audio. I
then
go back to the larger file and extract another segment and copy it to the
clipboard, then go back to my second window and place the copied segment
at
the end of the previous segment.
That's what I want to do, anyway; I can't figure out how to do it. I tried
pressing the right bracket (the finish marker) at the end of the first
segment in the second window then hitting control-f. GW placed the second
segment at the beginning, not the end, of the first segment.
How do I do what I'm trying to do?
Hope this was clear.
Thanks. John Riehl

Re: Major problems when attempting to record a stream

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello Don,

Have you tried changing the sample rate within the app you are using? Looking back, I see the problem is that it is recording too many samples. So do a test recording at half the sample rate. I mainly use a Mac and would use Amadeus to play such a recording and adjust the sample rate. I have no idea how you would do that on Windows? If you have kept any of the recordings you could use them to troubleshoot.

Good luck

Thank you so much, Georgina, for your prompt response. What you suggest makes sense. But suggest places to check. For example, I know how to check sample rates in the various recording programs such as Total Recorder, GoldWave, and Studio Recorder; but where would I check sample rate settings in the sound card? When I look at those settings, all I see are volume, balance, and whether or not to listen while recording.

Re: Major problems when attempting to record a stream

Colin Howard
 

Greetings,

I am surprised in TR you are using the stereo mix, I do not for live
streams, I capture the sound off the stream by using background recording.

Then, again, what live streams are you taking?

I can supply you with direct links for all the BBC streams plus a few others
such as The Ride Radio Etc.

Do you know how to use TR's background recording function?

I use it extensively and can take about five streams on the same machine
together and none interfere with each other, maybe I could have more, think
this is rather dependent on my broadband capabilities.

I can have them all set to background mode, meaning I don't hear the
streams, I can go into any and play as it records, stopping play leaves play
at the stop point and resuming picks up. You can wind back or forward but
when you meet the point of recording, play goes back to the start.

If you want more info, please come back privately to me at:

colin@...

I've been using TR now for about ten or maybe even more years, my current
version is V8.3Pro, I do have V8.6Pro but being happy with the older one,
not installed it yet. I use TR on my old WXP laptop and my W7 desktop.

Re: Major problems when attempting to record a stream

Hello Don,

Dependent upon the driver. so it may be as part of the driver properties. Mixers and interfaces may have a ASIO driver so windows has a control panel item. Most of which are not accessible. I am guessing you will need to explore the device manager and look through the tabs of the driver.

Thank you so much, Georgina, for your prompt response. What you suggest makes sense. But suggest places to check. For example, I know how to check sample rates in the various recording programs such as Total Recorder, GoldWave, and Studio Recorder; but where would I check sample rate settings in the sound card? When I look at those settings, all I see are volume, balance, and whether or not to listen while recording.


Thanks.

Hello,

It sounds like you are mixing sample rates. Check that every listing matches. whether it be 44,100 or whatever, the hardware can handle.
