Re: exporting as mp3

I click the save and the next box coming up says edit tags and when I save that, nothing happens.
That just saves the metadata template. Usually that's not necessary.

Click OK in the metadata editing box and the MP3 file should be created/saved.

Re: -20db or best signal

I wonder if I can clip and then just reduce the level to where it would be without clipping? This a little tricky... Audacity shows red for potential clipping and you can get a false positive or false negative. Your ADC (analog-to-digital converter, recording), DAC (digital-to-analog converter, pla...

Re: ogg file won't open

Confirmed - Except for me Audacity (3.0.0) crashes when I try to open it. "Importing Ogg Vorbis files (Not Responding)" I was able to convert the file to WAV with Kabuu Audio Converter and then I could open the WAV. I was also able to open the OGG file with GoldWave. I can open an OGG that I create...

Re: Pitch and Tempo issue on recording changes mid recording.

The whole recording is there,
Little bits of the waves missing. You can stretch-out the waves to get the timing & pitch back (approximately) but wherever there is a missing piece you get a glitch (discontinuity) and distortion/noise.

Re: Pitch and Tempo issue on recording changes mid recording.

Any thoughts on how to bring the file back to how it should sound?
No. The missing bits were never recorded. If you have a few glitches sometimes they can be "repaired" but you've got a pretty-bad problem. :(

The fact is, most recording problems can't be fixed, especially not the bad problems...

Re: Pitch and Tempo issue on recording changes mid recording.

You're probably getting dropouts . If there are lots of little missing parts in the recording it will play back faster and you'll get glitches noise. There are some troubleshooting hits here . It can be complicated but it's related to multitasking interrupting the audio. It's best if you don't run o...

Re: Crackling when two separate clips are played

How are you "playing them together"? Are both tracks loaded into Audacity? Try cutting the volume of both tracks in half . (Run the Amplify effect at -6dB.) Mixing is done by summation so you can easily get clipping (overload distortion). ...Analog mixers are built-around summing amplifiers, but the...

Re: Avoiding mic input destruction

You are clipping the ADC so the peaks are unknown but you can still see a good-looking waveform so you're not too far off. And you obviously haven't killed the adapter yet... ;) Nothing is "calibrated" and usually there is a level/gain control* so everything is variable. :( But, since you have a 'sc...

Re: Continuous Audio Recording?

Ultimately there isn't that much background noise and the Yeti is known for picking up plenty of background noise (due to the type of microphone it is) hence why I'm debating a dynamic microphone such as the Shure SM7B (with a Fethead or Cloudlifter as a preamp to boost the dB threshold) given the ...
