Re: how to improve a track which have seperate channels ?

In this track, the left channel offer the voice, and the right one the instrumental music ! Efect -> Stereo -> Channel Mixer allows you to blend the left & right channels in any proportion, all they way down to mono (two identical channels) if you wish. (Or, you can reverse the left & right channel...

Re: Recording Device Mono Selection

Since nobody has replied I'll guess it's related to the hardware & drivers. (I don't see that option either.) You normally get both channels mixed together if you're recording from a stereo source. And, if you are recording from a multi-channel interface you may only get channels 1 & 2 as left & rig...

Re: Peak-to-loudness measurement

FYI - This is mostly a user-to-user forum so you might have to wait awhile for an answer here. You can contact Chris (GoldWave's developer) via this form . Thanks for adding in the new PLR measurement to the Amplitude Stats, it's really useful! I REALLY appreciate the LUFS and loudness range measure...

Re: Volume Matching

In general, dynamic compression reduces the dynamic range (AKS dynamic contrast) by making the loud parts quieter and/or the quiet parts louder. That does make everything trend toward the same loudness. It's most-often used with make-up gain to make "everything louder". If you're shooting for a cert...

Re: Volume Matching

I'm not sure why the Volume Matching effect isn't working better for you, but there are a couple of tricky things about volume matching. The best way is usually by ear - 1. Maximize Volume on all of the tracks. 2. Listen to all of the tracks and if they are not equally loud after Maximizing, choose ...

Re: Big MP3 file

You're right, the file should be smaller. You might try saving with a different name just to make sure you are saving/creating a new file.

The bitrate in kpbs is kilobits per second. There are 8-bits in a byte so (ignoring any embedded artwork/metadata) I get: (96k/8) x 300 seconds = 3.6MB.

Re: Is there a way to reduce playback speed?

but I was trying to ask about VideoMeld!
Sorry, I don't have VideoMeld.

I was wondering about how changing the speed in GoldWave was going to help with the video. :D

There is a playback speed control at the upper-right of the Control Window (Tool -> Control).

Re: Can someone tell me

Yeah we have it line out (1/4 - old mixer) to XLR cable for the camera using a cable with the 1/4 male on one end and XLR male on the other. The XLR input on the camera is almost certainly a mic input (unless it has a mic/line switch). You may need an attenuator to bring-down the signal. that even ...

Re: Can someone tell me

So... The mixer-output goes into the camera? Are you connected to a line-input? (You'd only find line-in on a higher-end camera.) Then you open the audio/video file (audio only) in GoldWave? Check to see if the camera has Automatic Gain Control (AKA Automatic Volume Control or Automatic Level Contro...

Re: Input selection Scarlett 18i20

I don't know... I know GoldWave can handle 7.1 or 7.1 channel surround files, but I don't know if it can record more than 2-channel stereo (probably channels 1 & 2 on your interface). Is there some kind of control-panel application with the Focusrite interface that allows you to configure/assign cha...

Re: Removing noise from spoken audio

Try the Noise Reduction filter - Select/highlight the noise and click Copy. (That put's the noise into the clipboard.) Then select/highlight the main/talking file and run Noise Reduction with the Use Clipboard option. In my quick-test (I didn't really listen carefully) that seems to remove the elect...

Re: Distorted audio effects on iPhone (.m4a file)

I can't actually listen to your file 'cause I'm at work right now, but I looked at the waveforms. Usually you can't tell a lot by looking but yes, I can see a difference between the original WAV and the M4A. Now I think it IS a limitation of the lossy compression but I may have a found a "better" en...

Re: Distorted audio effects on iPhone (.m4a file)

I don't think this explains it, but OGG, M4A, and MP3 are all lossy compression. At a high-enough bitrate (kbps) they should (usually) all sound identical (or nearly identical) to the uncompressed original. But of course they all use different compression algorithms and at lower bitrates one of the ...

Re: Distorted audio effects on iPhone (.m4a file)

I don't have an iPhone but I'm going to guess it's a phase/polarity inversion problem where the left & right channels are partially canceled when it's mixed-down to mono (if you are listening to the phone's speaker). As a quick-check, plug-in stereo earphones/headphones to see if it sounds OK in ste...
