Re: 3gp file open

.3gp is a container format; it can therefore contain any number of valid codecs.

One computer has the proper codec; the other does not. You need to figure out what codec the file uses and make sure it's installed and available on your machine.

Suggestion/Request: Cue Point "Enhancements"

Hi Chris, I've recently been using Goldwave in my disc-mastering process for creating pre-split wavs and CUE files from multi-track mixdowns. Over the last few days, I've come up with two suggestions/requests: Ability to enter CUE points in mm:ss:fps "Simple" Import of CUE points from text...

Re: How to avoid the graphic delay in sound window when edti

Disable "Draw Overview Graph" under Options | Window. This will prevent Goldwave from having to redraw the overall view at the bottom of the file every time you make an edit.

Re: autocue : need a little improvement (but so obvious to c

Probably because the program isn't generating a track length or silence length while doing the process. It's just looking for silence, marking the cue, and going on. CUE files don't have a provision for either of those two options, so it's a waste to generate them. You can look at your overall file ...

Re: File conversion failure

It's probably a malformed header; it wouldn't shock me that iTunes used something non-standard. Your m4a files are technically "container" files; it merely "contains" a format and contains information about the stream. WAV files are technically container formats since they can co...

Re: Dynamics

Doug, I appreciate your input, and thank you for agreeing about software not making a total Workstation. Jack, I think you're confused. I'm not Doug, I'm Jay.

Re: Dynamics

I'll just say this on dynamics and older CDs: Older CD's usually have more dynamics, even though they were sometimes sampled with those kind of lousy 80's ADCs. The reasoning for this is basically...they didn't have the ability to tightly control volume levels using things like digital limiters. All...

Re: Best practice to eliminate hiss from old VHS source

Let's take an extreme case. say you keep playing the tape over and over and a pile of particles form, that tape hiss will diminish and high frequencies will disappear, and eventually there will be silence. So, tape hiss is what you are not hearing, and odd way to put it. If your tape unit is wearin...

Re: Best practice to eliminate hiss from old VHS source

Oh, that graph. That graph is used for the "use current spectrum" option. When using the clipboard noise; it serves zero function.

Presets box can be empty..it shouldn't make much difference other than setting FFT, overlay, and scale,

Re: Best practice to eliminate hiss from old VHS source

First of all, you will never fully eliminate the noise without destroying the original signal. Noise reduction is a very destructive process. You have to learn the limitations of it. If you're expecting complete noise removal, you may be disappointed. I don't know what you mean on the "zeroing&...

Re: Best practice to eliminate hiss from old VHS source

In order for noise reduction to work properly; you have to tell it what it's working on. So a noise-print is basically a section of audio that contains nothing but noise. No voices, no music, not even any ambient sound. Ideally, it just noise, just noise. This means you have to find a section of aud...

Re: how to adjust the degree of the mouse wheel zoom in/out?

I would suggest checking mouse options on control panel and adjusting the scroll wheel speed there. This will change them for the entire operating system, which may not be what you want; but should get the behavior you're seeking.

Re: Converting 16-bit to 8-bit issue

8-Bit is of poor quality. Zoooooming far into the waveform reveals the "stairs"-waveform of the amplitude sliced into only 256 steps. What you have to remember is how PCM stores the audio data. The sample rate says how many samples you have per second; the bit-depth is how many bits each ...

Re: How to record directly into Golwave a sound played on PC

It sounds like your testing the loopback for the speakers; but you haven't actually set that as the default input in the control panel properties for Goldwave.
