Re: How to change Hz and kbps

You'd have to use a lossy format such as MP3.

With uncompressed formats everything is proportional... If you double the sample rate (kHz) you double the bytes-per-second and the bits-per-second (kbps), etc. (There are 8 bits in a byte.)

Re: Noise gate issues

Have you tried a shorter release time?

Have you tried a lower threshold? You may have to do it in sections using different thresholds in different parts of the recording.

Have you tried "regular" Noise Reduction? (It may work better or it may result in undesirable artifacts.)

Re: Flac 24 bit to Stereo/Mono wave file

2. Do Flac Stereo 24 bit to Mono 24 bit PCM (selected only channel 1 on GUI) reduces level be 6dB Mixing is done by summation so it's common to reduce both channels by -6dB (50%) before mixing to mono to prevent clipping. If one channel is silent, muted, or excluded, the result will be 6db lower. A...

Re: How to change Hz and kbps

Effect -> Resample -> 8000Hz.

NOTE - For uncompressed files you don't have to manually set the bitrate (kbps):
16-bits x 8000 samples per second x 1 channel = 128 kilobits per second.
16-bits x 44,100 samples per second x 1 channel = 705.6 kbps

Re: How do I get started in simple plugin development?

There is an SDK but this post says it's not up to date. P.S. I hate to mention the "competition" but Audacity has Nyquist for making simple plug-ins and since Audacity is open source so you should be able to program anything you want . Or, I'm sure there is tons of information about making VST effec...

Re: A couple feature suggestions for Goldwave

If you are a scientist, I understand that MATLAB (or the MATLAB clones) can read WAV files and do FFT and almost any math or statistics that you can think of.

I'm just a GoldWave user, but GoldWave is an audio program. ;)

Re: During Conversion I'm losing Metadata

That could be tricky - Tagging for WAV files is not well-standardized or widely supported, and different formats have different tagging fields & formats so you may not get a 1:1 translation. You might try TAudioConverter or dBpoweramp . TAudioConverter* is my go-to tool when I just need to convert w...

Re: goldwave resample engine ,can i know what engine does it use?

I agree and may i ask you if you have to resample from 48k or more to 44.1 , what software will you use? I use GoldWave or sometimes Audacity. Whatever I happen to be using for the particular "project". If I'm using a CD track on a DVD (which I do rarely) I might just let the video editor take care...

Re: goldwave resample engine ,can i know what engine does it use?

hi DougDbug do you agree that sox is one of the best? That's what I've read. I assume you've seen src.infinitewave.ca ? They do have graphs for GoldWave 5.18 & 5.58 and you can "see" a "theoretical" improvement with 5.58. I don't specifically remember re-sampling with an older version of GoldWave, ...

Re: goldwave resample engine ,can i know what engine does it use?

I don't know, but I've never heard any aliasing no matter what software I was using. From what I've read, GoldWave's resampler used to "measure" worse than some others but I don't think it sounded worse, and it's been improved since then. BTW - Aliasing only happens when downsampling. Upsampling is ...

Re: Feature request: Spectrum Frequency Analysis

Izotope Ozone ($249 USD and up) has EQ matching or there are others so you can just search for "EQ matching". It's not specifically for matching left & right channels. No matter what software you choose you'll probably have to figure make two mono files, then re-combine for stereo after tweaking. Y...

Re: does goldwave have the feature to compare 2 tracks ?

You can Mix both tracks together and if they are identical you simply get double the volume. If they are entirely different recordings you'll hear an actual mix (a blend of both recordings) and probably an echo with the time differences so it should be pretty obvious that they are different recordin...

Re: bug amplitude stats crashed the program when i select a tiny portion of audio

Chris (GoldWave's developer) is the only one who can answer this, but "loudness" is related to the duration of the sound so it does take some time to get a meaningful result. I did some quick research about LUFS and I dug up this: - gating of 400 ms blocks (overlapping by 75%), where two thresholds ...
