Re: El Capitan

LP through Mac OS X 11.6
El Capitan is OS X 10.11.6, not 11.6. You should be careful of accuracy when you post for help and don't abbreviate or use buzzword shortcuts.

Re: El Capitan

If your Mac has a built-in microphone, can you record from that?

Re: El Capitan

What's the machine? I'm typing this on an Early 2015 MacBook Air. I've been doing this Mac thing for a while and while Apple makes upgrading very convincing and convenient, I've never had a forced upgrade. It's probably not a system problem. If you have the bouncing sound meter in System Preferences...

Re: Normalizing using RMS as opposed to Peaks.

is it possible to get a Plugin or something to use within Audacity which can handle RMS Normalizing? Fair warning RMS Normalize is not a "get out of jail card." It will respond to rumble and microphone data errors you can't hear and may create overload and clipping distortion. That's why it's used ...

Re: rms normalization relation to limiting help?

Had enough? That will only get you past the ACX technical requirements. ACX Check is an Audacity approximation of the ACX tests you have to pass before your performance goes to the ACX Human Quality Control. That's where you go to die if you can't read out loud. You might consider posting one of the...

Re: rms normalization relation to limiting help?

Audacity saves Projects but exports sound files. Projects are used when you want to save your editing environment and everything in it except UNDO. They are, by their nature, complex and more brittle than single, stand-alone, perfect-quality sound files such as WAV (Microsoft) 16-bit. If the machine...

Re: rms normalization relation to limiting help?

https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=96103 This is a long-winded way of introducing a three-tool process. It is a "suite," a harmonious grouping. The tools create intentional errors and clean up after each other. Don't ad-lib. If you have a quiet, well-behaved recording, it's possible...

Re: Normalizing using RMS as opposed to Peaks.

This may be a good time for Chris's Compressor. It's a third party audio processor whose goal in life is to make it so Chris could listen to opera in the car. The default settings are pretty gentle, but I use a variation that simulates stiffer broadcast processing. https://theaudacitytopodcast.com/c...

Re: Latency in overdubs

I hit the record button, a new track appears and the cursor moves, recording for about 0.1 second, then it stops. Audacity can do that if it has trouble finding the microphone or can only find it part of the time. Way in the beginning of the Overdubbing tutorial is make sure your Audacity works nor...

Re: How to install the ACX-check plug-in in Windows 7

You already have the location in Analyze rather than Effect. Did your download "help you out" by renaming the file acx-check.ny.txt ? Windows would have helpfully hidden the .txt part to avoid confusing you and thereby leaving you befuddled. You can Google how to force Windows to show you filename e...
