Re: id3 track field is erased for WAV format

You shouldn't be storing raw audio in WAV format for long-term. Why not? It's lossless, uncompressed, offers cd quality, and can be read by anything easily. I've been doing this for more than 15 years, starting while badly compressed MP3 ruled the dial-in internet... Sure, the metadata thing is a m...

Re: id3 track field is erased for WAV format

I'm unclear how the CD Reader Tool helps ... doesn't that tool read CDs and pull information from an online database? Yes; but it may write the information in to a WAV file in a different way. A useful principle when dealing with data interchange is to be strict when writing and liberal when readin...

Re: Sources for codecs?

On Windows 10, Goldwave 6 supports AAC/m4a "out of the box" by virtue of Media Foundation in Windows. There is no codec to install. For LAME...I seem to recall when I reinstalled Windows on this machine late last year; Goldwave 6 actually downloaded lame_enc.dll for me and copied it to the...

Re: Dragonfly red USB DAC

The Dragonfly Red is a DAC only, it does not contain an ADC. If you are using a separate device to digitize vinyl, as Doug mentioned; you need to configure Windows to "Listen to this device" on your Dragonfly output. In the old days, our sound cards usually contained both a DAC and ADC, al...

Re: Recording vinyl/cassettes and monitoring clipping

When recording vinyl you never want to try to use full scale as things like pops and clicks can cause clipping. Now...one could argue that since there isn't any valuable information in a click that it's no problem if it clips...but you still should avoid clipping at all costs. So I typically shoot f...

Re: Batch Procxessing

About the closest you can maybe get is paste your clipboard segment to a new file, load the NR effect; click use shape; and scroll through the spectrum to find the "loudest" segment and then create a shape envelope to save as a preset. There's no current way I can find to create a reductio...

About the best you could hope for would be something that could identify the song and then pull from a database, filling in the information you want. Software that could detect one type of genre from another without any outside information would require some pretty hefty AI that was "trained&qu...

Re: How to enable Stereo Mixer in Windows 10 1803 OS 17134.1

Maybe I'm not getting the same updates for my Windows 10...becuase I've heard everyone in the audio and ham radio (as we do a lot of soundcard digital modes) that they're having this problem. I just got a update this morning and my privacy settings haven't changed. Maybe it's 10 Pro vs 10 Home diffe...

Re: play selected interval (!) in endless loop?

Right clicking on the middle play button (I think), will allow you to select playback options. Among them is loop. That playback button will then loop the selection.

Re: Recording from a cassette tape - will GW separate the tr

If you have a minimum amount of silence between tracks, the auto-cue feature will mark all of these for you as CUE points. You can then adjust them if needed, delete false triggers, and have Goldwave split the track based on cue points. You can also export the CUE file for use in other software.

Re: MP3 loaded in GoldWave longer than that opened in a play

This file is completely screwed up. For starters, it appears to have been split from a larger mp3 file based on the mp3split signature. MP3Split must have malformed everything. No...I take that back. This is two entirely different encodes from different encoders with different bitrates that were imp...

Re: How to merge many mp3 file to be one song

If the files are all the same bitrate and you're not worried about volume equalization...then using something like mp3 direct-cut to merge them directly is a better option. Much like MPEG video can be split up in to smaller sections...the same goes for MPEG Audio. You don't get sample precision edit...
