Chris: The following question was raised on the PG forum: "How about file sizes, do they end up exactly the same?" This was my reply: Just tried a test on the file size; they are identical in length - 51,781 KB. Also tried using "windows copy" which duplicates the file and adds t...

Why didn't I think of that? We've already been through the mp3 encoder thing several times haven't we?

Chris: It was the original file created in Powertracks. To reiterate: 1. I export a file from PT, and load it into GW, 2. If I edit the file in GW, I can import it back into PT if I use the SAVE command in GW. 3. If I edit the file (OR NOT), I cannot import it back into PT if I use the SAVE AS comma...

If you have a really good soundcard (the onboard chip DOES NOT qualify here, neither do SB Lives, etc) you can record WHAT-U-HEAR with reasonable quality. It all comes down to the A/D and D/A converters in the soundcard (plus the other electronics). But most people don't want to spend upwards of $40...

Robin: Yes, I see what you mean. Goldwave will not play cda files; which seems strange as it loads so many other types of file. I suppose one could always use Windows Media Player to listen to the tracks to determine which ones to rip. Maybe in a future release? PN Edit 13 July 06: Actually Goldwave...

I'm surprised that an electronic piano has more bass than an acoustic - that's often the weak point of digitals. On removing bass, there are three filters you could try under EFFECT | FILTER: 1. Bandpass/stop 2. Low/High Bypass 3. Parametric EQ Right now, I'm experimenting with removing the frequenc...

Perhaps because playing is done in real time and ripping is done quicker, the point on a track from which ripping would be done would be ahead of the point where reading for playing would be done. Then when the first track was still being read for playing, ripping would have to be onto the second tr...

9 x 3000:

I guess we're going to have to wait for Goldwave Chris - I'm puzzled.

9x300 In order to answer your question, I attempted to save one of my wave files to MPEG, and I couldn't get any bit rate to work!!!!! What I found was this: OPTIONS | FILE FORMAT OPTIONS | select the DEFAULT SAVE FORMAT tab. In the two boxes, select the options you wish to use, and click OK. Now wh...

Stephens: Good points - I would then ask if you noticed this imbalance when listening to the vinyl and before you saw the waves? It seems that you have. We humans are easily influenced (I'm no exception) by things that shouldn't influence us. When I was first starting, I tried to balance the channel...

Stephens107: The first question I would ask is, "how far are the channels out of balance?" I have ripped the songs from about twenty well produced commercal cd's, and rarely have found the maxima to be the same for left/right channels. This doesn't seem to affect the result when played bac...

I'm impressed - hyberbolic functions too. I thought some of our equations in structural engineering were long - now they seem really short and simple.

I'm guessing you are a mathematician?

The left and right channels appear to be identical.

Good post Doug; some excellent advice. I'll bore you with the process I do (which follows all the advice Doug has given): I'm in the process of "matching" about twenty songs for a cd, and what I do is this (bear in mind this is mostly piano music - surprise!!) 1. If the dynamic range is la...
