Insert silence at cue point

I think this would work. Depending on the size of your file and number of cue points this might take longer than doing individually (it's pretty quick to copy a desired length of silence then repeat Next Cue/Paste especially if you set up your toolbar for it), but at least it's not as manual: First ...

Thanks abletec - yes the auto scroll-lock function does help, that will teach me to poke around a little more before whining! When I turned it off, though, the scroll lock key still didn't work as a toggle and it seems it should - or not, maybe it's by design. Basically the scroll lock key doesn't s...

Cursors in 5.22

5.22 is great, I like the silence reduction features. Just a couple of things: Is there a way to turn off the persistent cursor? Also, it seems like on playback the window automatically locks to the cursor position which used to be controllable using the scroll lock key. Now the playback (and possib...

Thanks for your insight DougDbug, I guess until space becomes an issue I'll go ahead and do my saving as 160 kbps. I'm glad to hear from someone who has a lot of experience!

Bitrate Question - I should know this but...

If I'm recording into Goldwave and my source is 128 kbps, 44,100 khz stereo is there any benefit at all to saving the recorded track at a higher bit rate, say 160? Or am I just wasting space. Maybe it helps reduce the "copy of a copy" effect a little bit. My suspicion is that 128 bit might...

Actually you can assign the buttons that way, just go to Options>Window and in the Miscellaneous section select "Use left and right mouse button selection method". Then you can set the start and finish markers using left and right click. As far as holding down for the default menu though, ...

I'm not an expert on microphone recording methods, but basically here's how I would do it (some of this requires you to know some GoldWave basics): First, if it's only a few minutes and if possible I would probably just re-record the whole thing but you would know that and apparently don't want to S...

Sorry but I have to ask the stupid question: Are you sure the file is being saved as stereo? Have you played or opened a saved file in any other audio program to be sure it is still a stereo file? I don't know of any way GoldWave changes a file from stereo to mono when opening, but it would be quite...

Use Options->Toolbar then you can move the buttons in the right-hand window by dragging/dropping.

This is also a little confusing to me. I did check WMP and found it seemed to be using the Fraunhofer codec (it was a little difficult, I had to go to "Help" then click on "Tecnical Information" to get an HTML version of the data - hopefully that was the correct way to get the in...

I agree that this would be a nice enhancement to the silence reduction feature and if not too hard to implement it would be very useful.

It may possibly be an issue with Windows Media Player.

Depending on your exact needs, you could use Goldwave's "Silence Reduction" feature which based on parameters you enter will reduce all gaps to a maximum length which you can specify.

I have used it many times with much success.

Thanks for thinking about it Chris - yes it's the very basic level that I would want. You would have situations where you would have a secondary cue point "too close" to an impending primary cue point but that would not be a problem at all. As long as the timer restarted when an existing c...

Cue points (How hard would it be..)

This has been in the back of my mind for a long time and I'm probably the only one it would help BUT... Let's say I've placed 4 or 5 cue points into a large file (let's say at chapter breaks or something). Then I want to place more cue points over the entire file (in one process) to divide it into 3...
