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.

I use Windows 10 fully updated.

I've successfully used WavePad Audio Editor - NCH Software to delete the first few minutes of a recording.

But I've been unsuccessful in using WavePad to generate a new file and to use it for a recording of my voice.

My microphone is fully functional.

But I've been unsuccessful in using WavePad Audio Editor - NCH Software to delete the last few minutes of a recording.

The key to the success is using right-click 'Select to start' and then 'Delete'

But I've failed to understand how to use right-click 'Select to end' to delete the last few minutes of the recording.

Your help, Experts please.

I need to quickly record myself short audio notes of my activities...how can I do this with my iPhone? I need it quick and to be organized...

If I could give each audio a name, is best.

Like, the customer name I am visiting.

Thanks.

I have trouble getting my Creative T3150 to become visible on Bluetooth. I turned BT on with my iPhone and my MacBook, and had the Creative T3150 powered on. Yet, it is not visible on my my iPhone not my MacBook.

Is there a step I need to execute on the Creative T3150 to become visible?

Thanks.

I'm in the process of listening to a book that has each chapter saved as an .MP3 file.

This book is contained within a folder within my Spring PCS Android Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone.

Currently only one chapter plays at a time and then I have to find the next chapter's MP3 file on the phone and play it next. I need the book to play non stop.

How can I set this book to play one chapter's MP3 file one after another using the MP3 Player app which I installed from the URL link below?

If I have a single track of Audigy music showing perhaps 30 tracks, all visible with obvious silent periods between songs, how do I tell Audigy to set the next track back to zero time in order for me to keep easier track of where I am? I am attempting to transcribe 33'2 to digital. I DO know the length of each song so this possible feature would be great if it exists. Does it?

Is there any software application that will route audio output back to the microphone input?  Got some audio files that can only be added via microphone.

Hi
I have addressed this a little already.
I have completed my audio/video upload site. I am not going to go public, because of the $500 / hr legal fees of all the attorneys I'll need to pay to draft up TOS and copyright needs for users and their music, and safety for my site being the forum for violations.

So, the months of questions there have come full circle, Thanks

But, I have seen comments here and there on the net about nobodies getting serious exposure for their music. What is the best way to do this for my music? My site was not for my music, but anybody's uploads..

My music is not recorded, but could be soon. I don't have a band. I'm quite happy being a loner.
I get the impression that there are forums out there for young people to listen to new music coming out, where artists can add their music to a queue of sorts for playback to listeners?
Are there real ways to advance new music?

Thanks

Hello Experts,

It was recommended that I use Audacity for mixing music - and I totally agree.

I need to be able mix in the next track, so it fade in, instead of starting abruptly from the beginning.

I was given the following link to show me how to do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvCk6RmlUms

However, this link shows me how to combine my tracks - which is what I like, but what I also need is the ability to fade in each track as I've just described.

Can someone let me know if that's possible with Audacity?

Cheers

Carlton

Please provide me with a list of Android apps similar to Audible that will continue playing a group of .MP3 files from point where playback last left off.

I listen to a lot of lectures and meetings that have been saved in .MP3 format and the problem when I use the built in Android app on my Samsung Galaxy S8 to play these files back is that this app will not continue playing the .MP3 files from the point where I last left off listening to these files (even after I have followed suggestions that should fix this issue).

These meetings or lectures usually consist of around 50 MP3 files that are all 20-30 minutes long. I listen to these while I am driving, and it is very easy to forget exactly where I left off when I go back to resume listening to these audio files later.

Resuming playback from the point where you last left off is something that the Audible audio book playback app does quite well and this is what I need for these groups of .MP3 files that I listen to.

What Android apps will do this?

I am putting together a music playlist for an upcoming event.  I have MP3 files from a variety of sources, and when they play back the volume varies.  Is there a technique or software that will balance the volume so that it plays consistently?  I am on a Windows 10 PC.

Thanks,

Phil

What are some good Windows utilities for combining several MP3 files together into a single MP3 file?

Years ago, Moodlogic was the best way to organize mp3 files. It compared the mp3 to the gracenotes db and was incredibly accurate. It has since been taken down and I have tried several apps that all do a poor job. I am looking for the best current app.

Hi

I'm lined up to record my music at a quality studio.
A few bars in my songs are pretty tough to play, and a software instrument would nail it, I'm sure.
The producer said her assistant would load her software instrument kit in to Pro Tools.
As luck would have it, hers is a little old. My Software instrument everything (Native Instruments Komplete) doesn't work in Pro Tools, but does in Logic.
I cant imagine the assistant's suite is a let down?
Anyway
Do you think software instruments are glaringly soulless and lame?
I could make the protools incompatibility irrelevant, if I record the S.Instrument backing in Logic to the correct beats
Anyway, she has worked with tier 1 artists, and I don't want to have a >0 coefficient of clownage.

Hello,

What is the best/simplest way to create a customized tracklist to display when playing a CD?

My mother is a (young) 83 year-old who spends quite a bit of time driving in her car each week. She really enjoys listening to recorded talks but has exhausted her supply and is tech-UN-savvy. She's quite comfortable using the CD player in her car however, so I told her I would be happy to create some CDs containing talks from the public domain.

The talks download as MP3 files and we agreed that the simplest navigation scheme for her would be to have the tracklist display as follows:

    |    Track #    |    Speaker Name    |    Date    |    Venue    |    Title    |

I haven't created many CDs in that manner but it seems like downloaded files (or maybe all MP3 files) usually contain data which appears by default in the tracklist. If that is correct, and:

if I've got the data I want to use in five corresponding columns in an Excel spreadsheet, what is the best method or software for:
    1) overwriting the default data and
    2) creating a tracklist from my spreadsheet?


By the way, I've got VLC Media Player installed. Is that a good option?

Thanks

Hi

I have created a media upload website.
Anyway, I'm concerned that my dear users might upload songs or videos, only to have them stolen by renegades and losers
I applied for trademark of my website name today on legalzoom.
I once heard that having a provable version of art, eg, a recording/book in a mailing, is as good as copyright.
Can I have a text field for my artist 'Megatrons' to say for their song 'home invasion'
" Copyright @2017 Megatrons"
and that have meaning, legally?
Thanks
What should I consider?

I have a Sony Handycam HDR CX240 camcorder.

This camera will be used to record video outside for a few hours.

A good few people would like to watch this video footage live while it is being recorded.

Facebook Live seems to be a good streaming service for this task.

How would I stream this video footage through Facebook Live through use of my Sony Handycam HDR CX240 camcorder?

I plan to get the 30-day free trial for Adobe Premiere and wonder if Adobe Premiere would replace Audacity (for me) for audio editing?

I have use Audacity for years to make my own recordings and am pretty handy with it. But if Adobe Premiere is good enough, I may have no need for Audacity.

Thoughts?

Hi

To test my astonishing new web site, I need some links to a few music videos mpg's or mp4's, both file types will help. Any will do, even Kevin Federline. They are hard to find.
I'd prefer direct links, not needing to sign up for anything.

Also, the freelancer helping me has only catered for mp3 and mp4 uploads.

How can I tell him, this is not enough, do wav and AVI also along w mp3? Is that correct - do amateurs use mp4 and AVI? I used wav and mpg, I assume it is most needed?

Thanks

I don't think there is any such software since I've been searching for days but I thought I'd ask on here as a last ditch effort.
I am looking for music management software (that runs on Windows) that supports both streaming from an Android device over the internet (ideally it has an Android app) and synchronizing an iPod.

My current set up:
  • iTunes as music management software, in order to synchronize my iPod.
  • CloudPlayer to stream from my Android device (all of my music is on Google Drive).
  • iSyncr to synchronize select playlists from iTunes to my Android device.

This set up isn't terrible but CloudPlayer does not feature all of the playlists I have in iTunes nor does it allow me to sort by iTunes fields (date added, etc.). I could technically just sync all of my music to my Android device as well but I don't really want to use up 40GB on my device for this purpose when I have a data plan large enough to support streaming on demand.
