Re: Vinyl rips in mono

Windows may be configured for mono. Right-click the Windows volume/speaker icon and select Open Sound Settings . Go to "Input Devices" or "Recording Devices" (depending on your version of Windows), select the USB device and try to find the stereo/mono settings. It might be under an "Advanced" tab. O...

Re: Processing voice recording for podcast?

The low frequency cut is always a good idea for anything that's not specifically bass. With voice, anything in the low-frequency range is noise. Otherwise, "Diagnosis before treatment" and "If it ain't broke, don't fix it. so we can't tell you what your recording needs (if anything). There is no re...

Re: How to change bitrate (ref FLAC files)?

I'm not aware of any way to choose any FLAC level within Gwave. You're right, you can't select 0-8. I don't use FLAC that much so I'd forgotten that. I only see "Maximum" which is obviously level 8, and "High". I just did a quick experiment and the "Maximum" file was only slightly smaller than "Hig...

Re: How to change bitrate (ref FLAC files)?

It's unpredictable but FLAC level 8 will give you the maximum compression (smallest files = lowest bitrate). The actual bitrate also depends on the uncompressed format and the program material Some material is easer to compress and some is harder to compress. You can usually get a file that's about ...

Re: Converting .mkv files to .mp3 files

Note that MKV is not a specific format. It's a "container" that can hold any audio/video formats. You'll probably need a different converter. Try TAudioConverter . Once you set up your output format and location it's just drag, drop, and click, and you can drag-in multiple files at once. If TAudioCo...

Re: 'Volume tab' in the 'Control property' is missing!

You replied to a post from 2013... I was recording from CD with record levels on older version; now have new version. First... You shouldn't be "recording" CDs. You can read/extract the digital data (commonly called "ripping"). Ripping is faster and you can get the exact digital data repackaged as a...

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

I'll add one more thing... Soundcard clocks (oscillators) are sometimes "off". i.e. the 44.1kHz sample rate isn't exactly 44.1kHz. No clock is perfect but I've heard of clocks being off by as much as 3%. If the clock is off, the pitch and tempo are off proportionally. Usually nobody notices except m...

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

They are giving you the difference from A=440 and you can calculate a percentage. You don't really need those alternate A-note tunings unless you are tuning an instrument. In GoldWave you want the percentage difference from the nearest standard note. For example - For 174Hz they give you A = 438.48....

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

in other words all my music at 440Hz convert it to 528hz. A = 440Hz simply the normal tuning standard. Musical Notes & Frequencies . It's arbitrary but it means everybody can agree on what an 'A" is (and all of the other notes can be derived from there) and it allows a band/orchestra to play in-tun...

Re: FreeDB is no more

It looks like GoldWave will have to find a solution or alternative. Wasn't the database for freedb open-source in the licensing AND UPKEEP? I smell a suit from someone eventually. Neither MAGIX or Gracenote should have proprietary rights to and OVER the database at least up to a certain date. I beli...

Re: FreeDB is no more

I don't use GoldWave for ripping so I haven't tried this, but try: Tool -> CD Reader -> Options -> CD Database Options -> Server and enter freedb.dbpoweramp.com . FreedB is open source so it's a matter of finding a copy of the database, and then hopefully there will be a new designated "official" or...

Re: Feature request

I don't have any oversize WAV files but I think the problem is that you can't make GoldWave ignore the WAV file header. I've tried renaming a WAV file to .RAW, .SND .TXT, .123, etc., and I can't open it as raw data. It always opens normally without asking for the format details (sample rate, bit dep...

Re: How to change Hz and kbps

You'd have to use a lossy format such as MP3.

With uncompressed formats everything is proportional... If you double the sample rate (kHz) you double the bytes-per-second and the bits-per-second (kbps), etc. (There are 8 bits in a byte.)
