  • Nude audacity query

    Another entry-level query I am afraid.

    I've been trying to burn several recent WAV rips onto CD. No problems in the past.

    These ones Windows recognises and plays, but won't it burn them.

    I've tried them on a couple of other computers - same result. Which leads me to think that I have inadvertently done something different with these at the ripping stage. Can't think what.

    The only clue so far is that one of the computers has flashed up a message. Something about files being incomplete or that I used a codec it doesn't recognise. But possibly that is due to that computer running Windows 10?

    Any suggestions?

    did you change the WAV format? needs to be the standard 16 bit, 44.1KHz (IIRC)

        Have you tried doing it clothed?

          Did you have particular garment types in mind?

            Sorted. Thanks Bongolia.

            And - nod to SK - at the time I was wearing a pair of black Jeff Banks jeans, a pink/ red/ white/ black window-pane shirt made to measure in Hong Kong, and an MJ Bale waistcoat.

                    Tricky to know what you might have done. A couple of things to try.

                    1. If iTunes will play them, burn the CD from there

                    2. Open them again in Audacity and export them out again paying more attention to the settings with which you export them.

                    3. Find a piece of software that will examine the file and tell you details of the formatting. I use a Mac so I can't recommend one for Windows but have a look.

                    If that fails, I'll have a look at one of the files if you'd like.

                      My main bug gear with Audacity and I use it all the time is not being able to edit when audio is being played back. It took me ages to re-educate my head as I was so used to being able to but it was well worth it and a minor thing all considered. There are a few other minor things too but I'm not complaining it's a wonderful project.

                      Saying that considering the likes of Wavelab, Sound Forge, Cool Edit used to cost hundreds of pounds each not so long ago it's amazing it's come along and basically taken the market away from the big boys and is free and not only that no ad's either.

                      Totally irrelevant to GLC's woes but just pondering.

                        No woes now.

                        Other than that de-popping a long quiet track is a drag.

                          Good to hear! I have a similar problem in that if I save a track in .WAV in Audacity as '32 bit Float' it wont convert to FLAC using DBpoweramp. I'm not sure if it's limited to that program as it's the only one I use for converting files but it's a minor pain. To be honest I cant hear the difference in sound quality but it's how I initially export them and it is supposed to be better so I've read..

                            Why not export to flac from within Audacity (which handles 32 bit export)? You can choose the flac quality level and even set up a shortcut key. That's what I do.

                            The one thing I would like to be able to do with Audacity is to know what audio format (bit rate etc) a file is before Audacity opens it.

                              Good point and I can't remember having done it but I have a nagging thought in my head that I've done it once. The only reason for .FLAC is to upload to Bandcamp so that's the only time I've encountered the issue.

                              dbpoweramp is handy though as you can do it via right clicking.
