Re: noise reduction 647 bug or different comapred to 6.3x or 5.70?

I downloaded the test file. Before commenting on test results, I'll say that I rarely compare the latest version of GW to earlier versions unless there's some really obvious malfunction -- a menu item doesn't work anymore -- something like that. Chris is constantly tweaking GW, and NR is an especia...

Re: noise reduction 647 bug or different comapred to 6.3x or 5.70?

It's very hard to diagnose this sort of problem without an audio file that can be downloaded and analyzed on diagnostic software. That said, I recently did a simple clipboard NR operation with GW 6.47 and didn't notice any problems.

Re: can i record with some effects on like noise reduction?

I've never tried using GW effects in real time. I've always assumed it was impossible.

Re: Trying to back up up goldwave 6.47

"Too old and pharty" to do a 15-second forum search? My Dad's 89 and still manages to look things up all by his lonesome. The answer to your question is in a thread you yourself started :roll:. Go back and review it. I followed Chris's instructions posted in that thread and found the GW backup featu...

I could offer some more ideas, but I'm afraid of making things worse.

Re: Abnormal Termination?

With V 6.47 I cannot enter my license information. I did that successfully the first time I loaded 6.47 but when I tried to open a new window in which to record, I got a pop up box informing me of an Abnormal Termination. I've never had this problem before, but I've heard of people having problems ...

Re: why does goldwave never save my old quality preset ?

OK, I took another pass at this. I can save bit depth and channels all right, but I can't seem to save sampling rate as a preset. Maybe I'm overlooking a step, but the whole procedure seems counterintuitive. I'll report back if I discover anything else. I tend to do conversions as a batch process; I...

Re: Probably a silly question.

Why don't you just close your eyes for 5 seconds while the program starts?

Re: Does the quality degrade when editing MP3?

If all you are doing is "previews" to see how something sounds, without saving the results, then, no, you won't degrade anything while doing your experiments. If you save the results, especially over and over again, you will change how the source file sounds. Degradation can happen very quickly with...

Re: Does the quality degrade when editing MP3?

You could conceivably degrade the quality of any audio file by editing it. It would all depend on the frequency and severity of the edits. I only edit files when they're in 24-bit .wav format, because .mp3's don't give me any headroom.

Re: Feature Request: Noise Cancelling Filter

Are you speaking from professional experience in the broadcast industry? Have you actually used GoldWave? I don't know why people ask, "What does this program do?" when they could easily find that out for themselves. It sounds like you have a lot of ideas, but don't know much about post-production s...
