Goldwave and Audible .aa files

Post by Majick »


I installed Goldwave because a post elsewhere said that it could decode .aa files into mp3 format. However, it does not appear to recognise the .aa format. Can it decode .aa?

Apparently not. The Wehsite says:
Supports iTunes Plus, m4a, wav, wma, mp3, ogg, aiff, au, vox, FLAC, and even raw binary data.
and the GoldWave FAQ says:
Does GoldWave support Audible files?
On May 24, 2004, GoldWave Inc. received a "cease and desist" letter from Audible Inc. claiming that information on this website was being used to circumvent copyright protection under the "Digital Millenium (sic) Copyright Act" and demanded that all references to Audible be deleted. Therefore all Audible information has been removed or censored. GoldWave Inc. will not answer any questions or provide any support related to that format.
However if you can play a file, you should be able to make an "analog" recording.
