A couple of gold wave questions

JOHN RIEHL
 

Hi. I'm using Gold wave v6.41 and JAWS 2020. I have lengthy MP3 files of
lectures I'm trying to edit. I'm able to set beginning and end markers with
the [ and ] keys and then delete portions I want to delete. However, when I
press the right and left arrows to move through the cuts, I skip ahead or
back at least five minutes, which is way too long a time. I'd like to set
the time Gold wave skips ahead or back when I'm going through a lecture to,
say, one minute. How do I do this? Changing the fields for play 1, 2 and 3
in the play menu don't seem to have any effect. Thanks!



Also, what do play 1, play 2 and play3 do, anyway?

Thanks. John

press alt plus 1 2 3 or 4. this shorten's the skip time. play with it to see which one works best for your need.

Hi.

I believe this increment moved (not just by the arrows, but by the marker
movement keystrokes for start and end marker) are controlled by your zoom
ratio. You'll have to experiment with the different zoom levels and see
which one suits you best. I have mine set to a very short increment and it's
been that way for ages, so I've just left it there, as "zoom" largely
effects what is displayed visually, which is not something I'm terribly
concerned about. As well as adjusting from the view menu, you can control
the zoom level with shift +a number. I am not 100% sure but I think there
are something like six different zoom levels available from this method,
ranging from about a second to an hour.

Play 1, 2 and 3 do whatever you wwant them to. This is what the adjustments
in the options for these buttons are for. You can have one set to play a
selection; another set to play an entire file. Or one to play a selection;
the other to play what is *not* selected. Or one to play a selection looped
until you hit stop. It's quite flexible.

Greetings,

Sorry this is so late but have been suffering email and pc problems for the
last few weeks and only just seen your post.

I am using GW V5.70 but what I write applies equally to your version.

1. To enable jumping in small increments, you need to set the zoom level.
When GW opens a file, normally the screen shows in visual form the whole
length, hence moving markers / arrows, moves a percentage of the whole file.

In GW, go to the view menu, ensure scrollock (ctrl l) is checked, this
enables arrow / marker movements. Go down the menu, you will find loads of
zoom-related entries, zoom in is shift up, zoom out shift down, then there
are several presets, such as zoom to ten seconds, zoom to one secont . . .
what these mean is only the specified length of the file is shown on the
screen hence the arrow / marker values are appropriately changed. I mostly
tend to set my zoom rate at one second, which is alt with one.

To help, you may care also to set the edit field in the play tab, this
follows the rewind/wind forward settings and, certainly in versions before
any of the V6 ones, by default is set to 0.00, I have mine set to 0.15,
which means whenever I move a marker or arrow, I hear fifteen hundredths of
the zoom value, in most cases this is adequate for my editting and setting
this field increases both accuracy and speed of complex edits and use of
other effects.

2. The three play controls are intended to be used to access the file in
different ways. I have mine set as follows which gives me all the
flexibility I could desire.

Play1, executed by F2 is set to play all, meaning it starts at the beginning
of the file.

Play2, executed by F3, I have set to play selection, meaning I play anything
between start and end marker.

Play3, executed by F4 which, in versions below 6 is not set by default, I
have set to play view, meaning it plays whatever is showing on the screen.

These can be set in the play tab of control properties.

When GW first opens the file all these play controls start at the beginning
and play the file in it's entirity, their action is, thus, ruled by your
settings of zoom, you can, therefore, see how important setting the best
zoom rate for your needs is of the utmost importance.

Late though I am, hope the above explanations prove to be useful and if I
can assist further, having used GW in it's various forms since 2006, please
get in touch.
