Re: External access to LUFS value

This Wikipedia Page has links to several related technical documents. I also found: github.com/jiixyj/loudness-scannerv github.com/jiixyj/libebur128 Audacity now has "Loudness Normalization" and it's open source so you could dig-into the code. (Audacity won't show you the current loudness...

Re: How to increase bass in a *.mp3?

The volume of (only) the basses should be somehow increased. Effect -> Filter -> Equalizer. The low frequency (bass) sliders are on the left and the high-frequencies (treble) are on the right. The song should become more clearer (for this song for the full range = not only the bass) The music instr...

Re: ia sample rate question related to audio card (internal)?

From what I understand the Exclusive Mode drivers won't re-sample so if your hardware doesn't support a particular sample rate it won't work. Some soundcards only run at 48kHz, or only at 44.1kHz, and everything else is re-sampled by the drivers. In regular Shared Mode the drivers will resample when...

Re: Find and Replace Peak Volumes

Yeah... Limiting is a fast kind of dynamic compression so with GoldWave try Effect -> Compressor/Expander and try the Reduce Peaks or Reduce Loud Parts preset. You can tweak the settings if you don't get the exact results you're looking for.

Re: can't record

I'm still stuck on this issue. I can play records on the phonograph and the sound is fine through the computer's speakers, but I can't record anything. If the sound is getting into the computer you should be able to record it... Maybe you have a driver problem... Go to Options -> Control Properties...

Windows may be configured for mono. Right-click the Windows volume/speaker icon and select Open Sound Settings . Go to "Input Devices" or "Recording Devices" (depending on your version of Windows), select the USB device and try to find the stereo/mono settings. It might be under ...

Re: Processing voice recording for podcast?

The low frequency cut is always a good idea for anything that's not specifically bass. With voice, anything in the low-frequency range is noise. Otherwise, "Diagnosis before treatment" and "If it ain't broke, don't fix it. so we can't tell you what your recording needs (if anything)....

Re: How to change bitrate (ref FLAC files)?

I'm not aware of any way to choose any FLAC level within Gwave. You're right, you can't select 0-8. I don't use FLAC that much so I'd forgotten that. I only see "Maximum" which is obviously level 8, and "High". I just did a quick experiment and the "Maximum" file was o...

Re: How to change bitrate (ref FLAC files)?

It's unpredictable but FLAC level 8 will give you the maximum compression (smallest files = lowest bitrate). The actual bitrate also depends on the uncompressed format and the program material Some material is easer to compress and some is harder to compress. You can usually get a file that's about ...

Re: Converting .mkv files to .mp3 files

Note that MKV is not a specific format. It's a "container" that can hold any audio/video formats. You'll probably need a different converter. Try TAudioConverter . Once you set up your output format and location it's just drag, drop, and click, and you can drag-in multiple files at once. I...

Re: 'Volume tab' in the 'Control property' is missing!

You replied to a post from 2013... I was recording from CD with record levels on older version; now have new version. First... You shouldn't be "recording" CDs. You can read/extract the digital data (commonly called "ripping"). Ripping is faster and you can get the exact digital ...

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

I'll add one more thing... Soundcard clocks (oscillators) are sometimes "off". i.e. the 44.1kHz sample rate isn't exactly 44.1kHz. No clock is perfect but I've heard of clocks being off by as much as 3%. If the clock is off, the pitch and tempo are off proportionally. Usually nobody notice...

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

They are giving you the difference from A=440 and you can calculate a percentage. You don't really need those alternate A-note tunings unless you are tuning an instrument. In GoldWave you want the percentage difference from the nearest standard note. For example - For 174Hz they give you A = 438.48....

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

in other words all my music at 440Hz convert it to 528hz. A = 440Hz simply the normal tuning standard. Musical Notes & Frequencies . It's arbitrary but it means everybody can agree on what an 'A" is (and all of the other notes can be derived from there) and it allows a band/orchestra to pl...
