Bad experiece for first time use

Hi jhon, You may be right, just not enough sound coming from the phone to record, it isn't a very loud signal. Does it work to record your voice just talking into the microphone? If so then you likely do have all the settings correct. Just a couple other things I want to be sure of (sorry I don't me...

Folders won't stay in order

Sounds like you have some very strange stuff going on, Tonedeaf. I'm not sure about the jumbling, but I do know that compressed or encrypted files on an NTFS system can show up in blue (there's an option in Windows explorer to have them in color or not). Just for the record, I don't have a dot by th...

Bad experiece for first time use

I too am a huge Goldwave fan. It has many many options and generally that is a positive thing but for new users it can sometimes cause problems. Just in looking at your test steps, one thing comes to mind that you might want to check. Look at your Options -> Control Properties -> Volume settings. Th...

How to keep the screen focused on one area without moving?

One thing which can cause the behavior you are describing is the status of the scroll lock key on your keyboard. If scroll lock is on, then the window will follow the cursor position and reposition itself as the cursor moves. If scroll lock off, then the window is not locked to the cursor position. ...

Newbie question...

You can do this by opening both your audio streams in Goldwave, then select the "crowd noise" audio or section of crowd noise that you want to mix in. Do an Edit>Copy to save the section. Select your song window and put your insert point where you want the crowd noise to begin or perhaps a...

Thanks DougDbug... I for some reason thought I was saving file size using the lower sampling rate, just one of those things that you get in your head and it sticks there I guess. I'll try recording and saving at 44100 and see if it is noticeably better. Probably not since my ears and sound card are ...

Initial Recording Sampling Rate Questions

Hi all- I'm recording cassette tapes through line-in and everything seems to work fine, but I'd like to know if the settings I'm using are OK or if I could do better (or if it even matters!). I click "New" for a new sound window. Since I'm only recording spoken voice I just want a mono rec...

No need to feel embarrassed! I agree, it's one of those keys you can accidentally whack and never notice it in 99% of applications. Goldwave's use of it can be quite handy though, but even when I know it's on I will find myself trying to position outside the scroll window.

Cheers!

It may not be something this simple, but check the "Scroll Lock" key on your keyboard. If the scroll lock key is on, the window will always show the playing position when playback is active, just like the behavior you are descibing.

Hope this helps!

It's hard for me to remember back to version 4.26 as there have been many improvements made since that time. I would recommend (unless you have another reason for staying at 4.26) that you might want to upgrade at least to version 5.12. The cue points changed only slightly from 5.12 to 5.13 and then...

Generally when you reply to one of my posts I like to leave that as the last one since then other users know that there has been a definitive reply, but in this case I had to break my "rule". Your suggestion is absolutely perfect for what I want. I've tested creating a .bat file where my f...

I'm not sure I'm addressing your exact question, but I'll take a shot. First let me say that the Help buttons on both the cue points window and the split file window contain a lot of useful specific information, and I recommend that you take a look at that if you haven't yet. But I'll try to summari...

Thanks for the reply, Togglehead - I did look at the batch processing functionality of Goldwave (which you're right is pretty extensive) but could not see anywhere that you could specify file merge as an option. I'm assuming that means the command line file merge is not possible, but I know what's h...

File merge list won't fully scroll

This is something you're probably aware of Chris, but I've noticed in 5.13 that with long file paths in the file merge list, I can't horizontally scoll all the way to the right to be sure I have the files in the correct order, plus the window I don't think is resizable for long file paths. Is there ...
