Digital Audio

Digital audio is technology that can be used to record, store, generate, manipulate, and reproduce sound using audio signals encoded in digital form. Following significant advances in technology, digital rapidly replaced analog audio technology in most areas. Digital audio systems may include compression, storage, processing and transmission components. It is important to distinguish between the audio coding format, the codec performing the encoding and decoding of the raw audio data, and the container file. Common file formats include .wav, .aiff, .au, .m4a, .mp3, .wma, .ra and .raw.

Hi

In my WP blog, I'd like to give my users the opportunity to sell their associated art (their music)
Now that CD's don't exist, what are the opportunities here? mp3's, iPod?
How is music sold?
Do most people have the ability to acquire this music, in practicality?

Thanks

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

One of the people assisting me with the marketing of a time tracking tool on my website came across this advertisement for another website https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E48dtx8i_s.

He swears this is computer generated but does not know which product would have generated it.

It would be good to find a tool that could give me the same computer generated voice with the level of quality found in that video.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

It's the latest model Apple TV.
I am replacing a VCR with the Apple TV, and need the Audio and Video to be converted to connect to an old Marantz AV Receiver.

Is there an adaptor that will work and support Component as well as the 1-output Video?


Thanks

Came across this on Wired today:
https://www.wired.com/story/ai-will-make-forging-anything-entirely-too-easy
I highly recommend following the "Watch" link within; it leads to a video on YouTube of one of the researchers from Stanford editing a video of George W. Bush to insert new facial and speech expression in real time using an off-the-shelf webcam.

Yep... We're going to need entirely new techniques for determining and maintaining authenticity for things like this. Hey, maybe that can be one of those uses for quantum computing somehow... I'm also thinking blockchain solutions too (even though I really have a pretty weak grasp on blockchain, it does seem like a primary purpose is to help with data integrity.)

Photoshop brought about many similar problems for photography and all sorts of techniques have had to be created to detect when things are doctored.

But really, it's most important to always have a healthy level of skepticism... Even without any sort of editing of a photograph, it's easy to bend the truth just by what you choose to show in the frame!

Hi experts

I have these sports bluetooth headphones.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/jaybird-x3-sport-wireless-in-ear-headphones-blackout/5642500.p?skuId=5642500

I use them with my iphone.

I got these Jaybird x3 so I can use them while I run.  They are ok. But they occasionally fall off my ear so its starting to get annoying.

So now I'm looking for some bluetooth over the head style headphones that I can use while I run.

All the over the head style headphones I have seen seem to be made for just sitting around in your street clothes or leisure listening.
 Not for running around exercising and getting all sweaty in them.

Anyone know of some good over the head style sports bluetooth headphones that you can recommend that I can use while I run?

That won't get damaged if I get sweaty.

I just installed iTunes on my windows 7 pc and I'd like to copy a bunch of my MP3 files (some are podcasts, some are music MP3's) to my iPhone 6s. I don't want to copy ALL of my MP3's just some.
Can someone recommend a YouTube video or instructions.  the UI of iTunes is not really intuitive for what I'm trying to do.  
Or maybe I'm just not getting the logic of it.

Client is a township.  They are mandated to record meetings and post online for 90 days.  Meetings can run 3 hours in length.  Files are mp3.  Some are quite large.  

1. Is there a recommended method to posting audio on a website?
2. How large is too large?  Some files are over 300MB

We have a series of audios of conferences and have categorized them by presenter.  Since windows folder displays audio with 'Contributing Artist, Title, Album, etc.', we want to place the real authors of each audio.  We  can do this one by one, but looking for way to change 15 audios authors with one name (and do the same with the rest of audios we have).  How can we go about it?

I have a challenge: Want to run Spotify (or similar software) with a pre-defined playlist for some hours and then switch to another, net-based audio source (net radio). Switching should be done at specific times during the day (radio in the morning and spotify in the evening). Is this possible to do on an ordinary windows PC? What kind of additional software would be needed?

I have a large WAV file that I would like to put on CD's that I
can play on my car stereo..  It is 46.2 MB in size. Roxio will allow
only 24.6 MG, so I would like to split it, using Audacity, then
export the two halves, then burn two disks. .It's been awhile since
I've used Audacity, so I'm asking for advice.

Glen, is the trial fully functional or did you need to purchase? Just had a look at their home page and it looks quite comprehensive. I hesitate installing it if it doesn't allow saves in the trial to give it a decent run before buying though?

I had this question after viewing Cord to windows 10 laptop.

See previous question.
Based on pictures off front and back; do you know model number so i can contact company.
Also assume that there is an amp or base box.

Maybe this is a set.

This was purchased from another person without the cords

hi
I have written a ton of music, say 70 songs.

I am 39 years old. I'd like to get my music out there. I am not inclined to try and do the band thing *again*

I know the money in music is gone, now that CD's aren't sold.
Taylor Swift makes 0.004 cents a spin on a tube or something, right?
I'd just like to get my music out there. Are there any options for me?
I live in Wilmington, NC, which is called 'Wilmy-wood' - Hollywood East! lots of TV is shot here.
Can unknown people walk up to  a producer and say, wanna listen to my stuff?

Thanks

I'm using Windows Movie Maker to create a video for a funeral.

I'd like to use the song "I can only imagine" by MercyMe.

Can someone please point me towards a procedure to purchase a song from iTunes or elsewhere, and download it in a format that can be used in Windows Movie Maker?

OR ... I actually own this song on a CD.  Is there a way to copy just that song in a format that Windows Movie Maker can use?  

Thanks so much.

I need to photograph and take videos at great distance, but find the device:

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/838756-REG/Canon_520_B_PowerShot_ELPH_520_HS.html

too grainy.

How do I max out the resolution? I think such a great camera may work fine for me, if I could adjust it.

Thanks.

I'm trying to install Avid Media Composer for Windows, but it's a version I bought 10 years ago and never used.   I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium now.

It seems to have installed without crashing, but there are some things amiss.  There was a dialog box during installation saying my version of Windows couldn't support this operation.  

Second, after installation completed and I reboot, there is no entry in my programs for Avid.  So I located the executable and tried to run it, but received another dialog box saying it could not find Dac32.dll.  I searched for what this file is and found at answers.microsoft:

The dac32.dll file is a Digital Audio 32 Bit Copy Engine created by Christoph Schmelnik of Denmark.
I would suggest you to re-download that program from manufacturer’s website and install it.

I can't find the manufacturer or this file.  All I seem to find are suspicious sites charging money for dll's.  

Questions:

1) Where can I get this Dac32.dll file for Windows 7?  I would have thought Avid would install it, but something failed there.
2) Is it possible to upgrade my version to work best with Windows 7?

Other suggestions?

Thanks!
