You want to take 20 seconds out of the middle of the song and use it for a ring-tone? Take a look at this FAQ . - Open the file. - Highlight the section you want to keep. - Select EDIT -> TRIM. (This will cut-off the ends, leaving the highlighted section.) - You may also want to use Fade-in and Fade...

Some information about compression: Most audio compression is "lossy". (Video compression is lossy too.) This means that "data" is actually thrown-away during the compression/encoding process. You can't get the data back by converting it to a wave file. Any difference you hear between the OGG file a...

There is a crossfade command. I think it's exactly what you want:

EDIT->CROSSFADE.

You can also use a combination of fade-in, fade-out, and mix. I did that alot before Goldwave had a crossfade feature.

This is going to be darn-near impossible... unless you just want to fade-out the sound between "songs". It is very difficult for a computer to determine what is good-sound and what is noise. Most noise-reduction programs work by taking a sample of "noise only". Then the sound is muted when the noise...

I didn't know that some computers had stereo mic jacks! Here's an example of a "Y" adapter. It has two 1/8" jacks (female sockets) and one stereo plug (male). If your microphones don't have 1/8" plugs, you'll need a different adapter, or more than one adapter. There are all kinds of "Y" adapters, so...

Emile, GoldWave is the best!!! This probably isn't the best place to ask that question. Most people here are satisfied GoldWave users, who have no reason to use higher-priced software. I've been using GoldWave for a long time. It is a very refined program.... Few if any bugs, good user-interface, lo...

*I think so... I think if you open the Windows Mixer (software), and select record, you should see all of the inputs from both sound cards. I don't remember if the Windows mixer has a left-right "pan" control... you would need that, if you wanted to direct the sound to only one channel. (I can't ch...

:lol: Hey, give Chris a break! :lol: GoldWave is a Great Program! It works great, has lots of features, and is more “refined” than any other $50 program I know of (of any type). And, what a deal! I paid for GoldWave several years ago - free upgrades with lots of new features - no extra-charge plug-i...

Do you have a video editor? Most video editors will have features to replace the audio track, mix in background music, or add voice-over. My video editor (Ulead Video Studio) * has the ability to export the audio to a wave file. I use Goldwave to edit the audio, being careful not to do anything to ...

Is there any problem with CD extraction with "copy protected" CDs. Well, the whole point of copy protection is to prevent you from digitally extracting the audio! :) In your situation musixman, I suspect that you sometimes have a limited amount of time to get your work done. So, I'd recommed that y...

I'm not sure what you mean "manually".

I would use VOLUME->SHAPE to fade the music down and back. Then I'd use MIX to add the voice to the "main" theme track.

This shouldn't be too tricky because you dont need to fade the voice... Right?

I think you want REVERB.

I think you want REVERB. I don't have Goldwave on this computer (at work) and I don't remember if reverb is under edit, or effect... but Goldwave does have it. Echo is a delayed clear repeat of the sound. (You do not get echo in a concert hall.) Although echos do sometimes occur in nature, echo is ...
