Combining files

I have 20 files, each 1 – 5 minutes long. I would like to combine them, one after another, into one long file. I know how to do this manually by pasting one into another repeatedly; but wonder—is there a way to do this all at once?

Cannot convert

I have a .wma file, about an hour long, that I'm trying to save as a .wav file so i can edit without loss of quality. I've done this many times before with other files. But now it converts about half-way; then hangs up for a minute; then converts until it is almost finished; then hangs up again; the...

Eliminate loud sounds

I have an old interview recording that is quite soft. However, when I attempt to maximize volume, it doesn't do much because there are many places where the volume apparently is already near the maximum. Is there a way to compress all of the loud parts in one stroke, so I can then maximize the volum...

Batch processing problem

I'm presently doing a lot of batch processing, converting folders of .wav files to .mp3. Frequently Gold wave crashes after doing one or two operations. Sometimes it continues to crash even after restarting the program. I have tried reinstalling the program. (I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a ...

Eliminate loud noises

Does Gold Wave have a way to scan a sound file; find undesired loud noises like loud coughs which are louder than the rest of the recorded conversation; and eliminate those coughs? I know I can use "maximize volume" to identify the location of the loudest part of a recording; then manually...

Batch processing lock up

I'm running the current version of Gold Wave on a Vista machine. Each time I try to set up a batch process to convert a group of files from .wav to .mp3, it ceases responding. Any idea why?

Thanks

Thanks a million, Doug! You're suggestion worked very well, producing a good-sounding recording of about the same size as the .wma file--much smaller than the .wav files I've made. Would I be correct in assuming that if I am going to do some editing, it might be best to make a .wav file; work w/ tha...

Thanks for the reply, Doug. I do have Media Player, so I don't know why I don't seem to have this codec. I get the same message whether I "save" or "save as". As for MP3, I actually find that I can "save as" this format with GoldWave. However, the various attribute opti...

Editing & saving .wma files

I have an Olympus digital recorder, which actually makes pretty decent-sounding .wma recordings. When I download them and open with GoldWave, I can edit them, but when I go to save I find out that "no codec is available...or an error occurred." I can save them as .wav files, but of course ...

Wow, that was quite an explanation, Doug. Thanks.

What puzzles me is the fact that when I maximize volume, I've noticed that the "current maximum" given does not appear to correspond to the longest verical lines on the graph. Shouldn't it?

Dumb question

Here's the dumbest question ever--What does the vertical axis in the basic screen indicate? It doesn't seem to be volume, is it?

Converting files from CD's

This is probably a stupid question-- I can plug in a recorder or other device into my computer; play a recording; and Gold Wave receives the sound and I can make a sound file that I can edit, etc.. When I put an audio CD into the computer and play it w/ Windows Media Player, hoping to make it into a...

Thanks Chris. I called Toshiba to ask about getting a new driver. They sent me one and it didn't help. They then figured I may have a bad board. I'm scheduled to get it checked out under warrantee. Hopefully...

Thnx
