Re: Overdub + Clipping Issues

This is normal if you don't reduce the volume of your tracks. Mixing is done by summation... Analog mixers are actually built-around summing amplifiers. Analog mixers and multitracking DAWs have volume sliders for each track/channel, plus a master volume control. Audacity doesn't have a master volum...

Re: tuning an mp3 file into silent subliminal

I rerecord the affirmations only saved to a different format? my mp3 file is uploaded and sounds fine on audacity and that's as far as I can seem to get so what do I do next? The format of the original music and original affirmation are not that important. The most important thing is that the MIXED...

Re: Audacity does not do the recording

I think I hear the noise of the room, not the recording. You may have selected your laptop's microphone as your Recording Device . Of course that's easy top test by saying something or clapping your hands, etc. How is the cassette player connected to the computer? Is it a laptop? Most laptops don't...

Re: what is the ideal sound level for exporting music?

I try to stay within -12 to -6 db, but when making a compilation "disk" I like to tweak every song a bit with the normalize effect, and I am not sure if I am doing this right. All good!!!! tweak every song ... If you are making an album, the songs may not sound equally loud after normaliz...

Re: tuning an mp3 file into silent subliminal

what is a subliminal file (wav, txt, sorry cant remember what they are called) do I rerecord the mp3 into something else? WAV (and FLAC) is lossless. You may want to make a lossless file even if you start with an MP3. MP3 is lossy. Information is thrown-away to make the file smaller. The "dama...

Re: tuning an mp3 file into silent subliminal

There are different ways of making a "subliminal" file but if you just want to drown-out the subliminal message with music... - Open the subliminal file first. - Run the Amplify effect and enter a negative value to reduce the volume. Try -30dB. If that's not quiet enough you can start-over...

Re: just asking for tips

Try the Graphic Equalizer to boost the low-mid frequencies. Don't over-do it. A good mic shouldn't need much EQ. The lowest note on a guitar is about 80Hz so don't boost the deep bass. In fact you should probably cut the deep bass. Mic position also has an effect. RecordingMag.com has some articles ...

Re: 32 bits & 96.0 kHz .AIFF conversion to 24 bits & 96.0 kHz .FLAC

You wouldn't hear a difference (in a proper-scientific-blind ABX test ) if you reduced it to "CD quality" (16/44.1) ;) It's often impossible (or very difficult) to reliably hear a difference between an original and a good-quality MP3 copy! As you probably know, FLAC is lossless but it does...

Re: Understanding the "Amplify" effect

The top box is labeled Amplification (db) and usually has a value present upon opening. Let's use 3.522 as an example. Firstly, is that to be understood as -3.522 db or +3.522 db. Just like everyday numbers, it's positive unless there is a minus sign. ;) A positive value is amplification and a nega...
