Re: Detect Silences and Reduce Volume (Breaths)

Ideally I'd like to visually see the marked silences in the waveform first and then adjust the settings. Anything like this in Goldwave? You can use auto-cue to mark silence. This would at least give you markings on where silence was detected and could zoom in. I don't think this is the type of thi...

Re: Raw, ISDN A-Law, mono, Hz 8000

Have you tried the following: Renaming a file to have a .mp3 extension and see if Goldwave opens it without a dialog? Renaming a file to have a .wav extension and see if Goldwave opens it without a dialog? If I were to make a guess, someone either renamed a .mp3 to .voc; or someone attempted to rena...

Re: v6.27 Cue Points function bug?

You shouldn't be using # in the CUE name anyway as this can cause incompatibilities with other software. I don't even know if it's a valid character for CDText. That's just the way the program is going to work though. When you set it to parse the CUE name, it detects every # as part of the cue name....

Re: Feature Request: Update Performer From Cue File During S

What format are you splitting to? Goldwave will use some of the CUE information because I have files I split and exported that have time index as title names...haha. As far as performer...it's in the spec but nothing seems to use it. I author all my CDs from bin/cue usually. Ive never seen a player ...

Re: Lyric removal

There's a censored version on Vemo. You can use Goldwave's ability to record WASAPI mix (loopback in recording devices) to record the small segment that's edited. Then...if your editing skills are any good; seamlessly paste it back in to the song.

Re: How do I do FFT frequency shift?

So I started thinking about this particular post a month ago because as someone with many different hobbies...I see multiple ways of attacking this. The first would be the traditional audio method of pitch-shifting by whatever amount shifts everything 2khz..then applying low or high pass filters. Th...

Re: Best practice to reduce a 24/192 recording down to 16/44

Always process your file completely before doing any downconversion of sample-rate and resolution. Part of the reason for this is that Goldwave (and 99% of all other editors) internally process in 32-bit float; so even 24-bit audio is going to get "mapped up" and processed as float. This i...

Re: FLAC 1.3.2 released

When the new build is released, a way to choose Flac compression level would be neat. I batch convert most of my files to flac, and some of them I'd like to do level 8 compression on. No idea what setting Goldwave uses. When you go to save a file as FLAC, click the attributes button at the bottom o...

Re: 6.21 Please fix the waveform display artifacts...

Inaccuracies are to be expected when working at that zoom level. You're not looking at every sample, just an average.

Re: FFT feature request

That holds true to a degree; but if your content is stereo, there is some phase randomization that occurs. The only situation I can think of where you would have "stereo" noise would be FM MPX Stereo...where the noise from difference is out of phase in the final product. But the noise isn'...

Re: Some old aifc files won't work

The problem is likely that the files are compressed with the IMA codec, which was popular a *long long* time ago for low-quality compressed audio.

You will need to locate an IMA codec. I can't help you there as it appears none such stand-alone codec was ever released.

Re: Steps to improve a clip that is only vocals?

Also...try extending the mic so it is beside your mouth as opposed to below. When I do things with my headset the mic is just to the side of my mouth.

Re: Steps to improve a clip that is only vocals?

I honestly don't have much experience with Goldwave's dynamic compression. I did my processing in Adobe Audition with a combination of tube-modeled compression, multi-band, and hard limiting. De-essing was done in multi-band. These are much more aggressive than Goldwave's; so depending on various se...

Re: Steps to improve a clip that is only vocals?

I downloaded your audio sample and threw it though my usual software to see if it could be improved and what steps you would need. Your audio benefits from some dynamic compression; however there are additional recording flaws that prevent it from being entirely effective. For starters, there is a 6...
