GoldWave recording level

Howard Traxler <howard@...>
 

Hi All,
I'm using win10 64 pro on an HP SFF with a Realtek sound card, current NVDA, GoldWave 5 something, and an external sound source (Victor Reader).

Can't get the recording level to produce a recording as high as the actual sound feeding through the sound card or any other sounds already recorded.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

Re: Difficulties Installing Reaper on Windows 7 Laptop

Hello danny,

I think you should start working through the audio ins and outs. The members of the class who used Jaws still needed OSARA a as it installs a keymap that otherwise essential elements are very difficult to get to or not accessible at all. You also need the SWS plug-in again bringing more access.

You do know you can create a shortcut manually, just use the applications key.

I only suggested the OSARA installation as it would have verified a Reaper install.

Re: Uni-directional Microphones

Steve Jacobson
 

Thank you to all who have responded. Perhaps I should have given more context to my questions. In my mind, the best situation to record a meeting is when one can access the sound system directly as somebody mentioned. Ideally, one would have their own separate microphone to mix with the input from the sound system to pick up questions from the audience. If one can't access the sound system, attaching a small microphone directly to the stand that holds the sound system's microphone has often been a good strategy. However, recent trends can make this kind of arrangement harder to achieve. For one thing, often there is no microphone stand with a main microphone, being replaced by wireless microphones. Sometimes, sound systems are all contained within a single cabinet along with the speaker and it may be brought into the meeting room just before the meeting starts. I have found that sometimes, just placing a microphone on the table at which speakers are sitting can work well, but sometimes that arrangement picks up a good bit of room echo from the sound system itself. In that situation, a cardioide pattern would probably help. I have just been trying to think of other methods that might work as alternatives in difficult situations. Although we would never have considered this years back, picking up the audio from the speaker can be a reasonably good approach with a good microphone and a full range speaker as somebody else suggested. While I am familiar with cardioide patterns, I have never had any experience with a shot gun type of microphone. I understand older designs were fairly long and don't know if there are newer designs that might achieve some success with electronic noise cancelling technologies, which is the reason for my questions. Clearly, if one were to use a shot gun style of microphone, one would have to monitor continuously, as Tim suggests.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

I would not recommend a figure 8 pattern if you are sitting in the
audience and want to record the people on stage. A firugre eight
microphone picks up equally from the front and the back of the mic, so
it would pick up the audience as well as the people on stage. You
probably want a pair  of cardioid or shotgun microphones.

Unless the mics are very expensive.

The common terms are omni-directional and figure 8 polar patterns

The choice of microphone depends upon the quality desired and the
money available. In addition to the event’s structure and location.

Hi, Steve.
It depends what type of microphone you are talking about. If you
mean a standard cardioid microphone, that might work fairly well. If
you meansomething that is even more directional, like a shotgun
microphone, it might be difficult if there are multiple speakers on
the stage, since you would have to move the microphone back and
forth to capture the audio from all the speakers.
Also in this particular situation I would advise that you use
headphones to insure you are getting the best possible recording.

You might consider trying Tunnelbare first as you get 500MB of data free of charge every month and the client isn't bad for accessibility.
I don't know whether Windows 10 has a built-in VPN client these days. If it does then you could use that along with whatever VPN provider you choose.
The Mac, Android and IOS have built-in VPN clients which are perfectly accessible which is great for customisation and getting the best out of your VPN provider.

Okay so what Pro VPN client are we talking here?
I use HMA on my IOS, Android and computers.
The HMA - Hide My Ass - VPN subscription is a little on the expensive side however the reverse is that the clients are extremely accessible and you have a heap of customisation options to choose from, to optimise your VPN for different applications including streaming.
I don???t know whether Tunnelbare VPN has an IOS client but if it does then that may be worth looking at.
With Tunnelbare you get 500MB of data free every month so that might be enough without having to pay any extra for more data.

Hi Dane

The problem it seems is then that you need the pro version for the vpn

And one other thing, what version of Tunein are you using? I'm using
Tunein Pro and things work here with my VPN so I can't say the same
for the free version of Tunein.

Hi!
I have the same problem.
I think Tunein is not meant to work through a VPN.
I could be wrong though.

Re: Uni-directional Microphones

Hello,

It looks like any other mic. Such mics as the Blue Yeti up to U87 are multiple pattern mics and you just operate a switch. From my understanding a figure of 8 is not a studio microphone. Figure of 8 would be used in meetings and interviewing situations. Which I think is the environment that the original questioner was writing about.

What's a figure 8 mic look like? I keep hearing they hear from the frunt and back. What's that mean? So hear's what I emagin. Something like an SM58 but as well as hearing you at the front end like the 58 it heard you even if you're talking at the XLR end of it. Sorry if this isn't too clear but again I've not used a true figure 8. Only the H6's little mid side ball. But not a true studio figure 8 capable mic. Well I guess my question might be hard to answer as I guess it depends on what company made the mic and what said mic looks like. Also I ask because I was talking to someone and I said that I figure that the human ear drum if compaired to mics would I suspect be omni patterned. Than in replay to that comment someone figured they'd be figure 8. But again if figure 8 mics work as I suspect from what people say about them that doesn't add up. Because why than do you hear things in front of your head and right in back? Figure 8 would be a strange pattern.

I would not recommend a figure 8 pattern if you are sitting in the audience and want to record the people on stage. A firugre eight microphone picks up equally from the front and the back of the mic, so it would pick up the audience as well as the people on stage. You probably want a pair of cardioid or shotgun microphones.

A portable cardioid or shot-gun microphone taken by each speaker will give the best results but there is going to be some handling noise. Unless the mics are very expensive.

The common terms are omni-directional and figure 8 polar patterns that may meet the criteria as expressed.

The choice of microphone depends upon the quality desired and the money available. In addition to the event’s structure and location. If all participants are co-operative.

Hi, Steve.
It depends what type of microphone you are talking about. If you mean a standard cardioid microphone, that might work fairly well. If you meansomething that is even more directional, like a shotgun microphone, it might be difficult if there are multiple speakers on the stage, since you would have to move the microphone back and forth to capture the audio from all the speakers.
Also in this particular situation I would advise that you use headphones to insure you are getting the best possible recording.

Does anybody have experience with using a uni-directional microphone to record a presenter at a meeting from the audience? I know there are directional microphones that work well to allow a speaker to be picked up at a close range while suppressing feedback, for example, but I am interested in being able to better pick up a speaker from, say, the first row in the audience. Any thoughts on what degree this is practical would also be of interest.

Hello,

The question is vague and I am surprised that the author hasn’t offered any clarification. The author Steve dismissed cardioid then wrote:

I am unsure if the speaker in addition to the first row of the audience is desired. Hence why I said a figure of 8 may be the solution. As the author dismissed cardioid.
