Re: Trouble getting Goldwave to Record from Focusrite 18i8

Unless there's a seperate utility that will let you configure two inputs for stereo; you'll likely need a full-fledged multi-track capable of recording from two devices simultaneously. Devices like that can be tricky to get working as stereo since they're not designed as such. You literally have 4 m...

Re: Keyboard Sounds

I just installed Windows 10 a couple of weeks ago and I haven't had time to change any of the default sound schemes. I have not heard any kind of copy/paste sound from Windows at all. So Windows is not generating it. This doesn't leave out other programs in the operating system that might be doing t...

Re: is there a way to select a cue part by keyboard or 1clic

You can right-click in the window and select "set start" and "set finish" markers; but that's still technically 4 clicks and you probably knew that. The way I would do it is have Goldwave split the thing in to individual tracks using the CUE file and then recombine them later usi...

Re: recording a dvd audio track

SmartRipper will extract the indvidual streams from a VOB on a DVD....somehow. From a research perspective: I've been buying Weird Al on HDTracks. I happen to have a copy of Straight Out of Lynwood on DualDisc. I wanted to compare the editions. I used SmartRipper to extract the LPCM tracks from the ...

Re: remove room acoustic echo from a recorded live theatre e

The process of removing this kind of echo is called "deconvolution". It's the opposite of convolution, which is a process of creating echo using an "impulse response". Basically you set up microphones in a room and create a sharp impulse....like a clapper or baloon pop. You then ...

Re: how to eliminate the music of an audio file

Audio is like a cake once its all mixed.

You cant unbake and unmix a cake.

You can do very limited amounts of reduction in FFT..but will will never fully elimnate the audio.

Re: Order of effects

When doing noise reduction its best to find a sample of noise and copy to clipboard, then use that for the reduction profile.

Re: Order of effects

Run noise reduction before equalization. The reason being is that the EQ can actually alter the noise profile and make it more difficult to remove some types of noise. Keep the amount of processing down to reduce artifacting. Remember, this is noise reduction...not noise elimination. You will not ge...

Re: MaxMatch without the maximize

I usually search for a matching segment to splice in first. But this is a unique segment in the song that I can't reproduce.

Not at the current time from what I can tell. Chris would need to update the VST code.

Re: MaxMatch without the maximize

Turned out to be a lot more complicated. I only got it to "acceptable" by doing almost sample level volume adjustment by hand along with sliding gain. It still sounds a little fluttery....but it's probably a defect that just can't be fixed.

MaxMatch without the maximize

Hello everyone, I've come up against something I've been racking my brain on for the last 15 hours. I've got a CD that apparently had a bad spot in the master tape in the form of a dropout. This is not a simple quarter second dropout...it "sounds like someone thre a magnet in the tape machine&q...

Re: is there a way to find clipping point/cue?

Typically you need pretty specialized plugins since fixing clipping requires repairing the original waveform, which means guessing at the original shape/amplitude. Basic tools won't do it, they'll let you reduce the sample so it doesn't hit clip level; but it's still got a flat-top and all the disto...

Re: audio staticts is there a way ?

Goldwave can give you the peak amplitude in a selection by virtue of the maximize plugin. But there is nothing for RMS stastitics.

Re: Needle drop 'skipping'

I gave up on PC based recording years ago. Yes, it's nice and handy; but a PC is prone to too many issues recording wise. My suggestion...which is probably not a very popular one; is you move recording entirely away from the PC and in to some kind of dedicated device. The first thing this does is re...
