Re: Volume

You mean even-out the volume, right? Making the loud parts quieter and/or the quiet parts louder? That's "dynamic compression" or "automatic volume control" or automatic gain control". You can use the Envelope Tool to fade-up the quiet parts or fade-down the louder parts. There is a Leveller effect....

Re: Track listing

Unfortunately, there's no well-supported way of doing that with "computer files". And the tags/metadata can only hold one set of data, so only one song title for each file. (Regular audio CDs or DVDs & Blu-Rays all support tracks/chapters.) If you download a live album from Amazon or iTunes you get ...

Re: Can I use Audacity for doing voice-overs for existing videos

Audacity can record your audio but you'll need a video editor to combine the audio & video together.

And, there is a possibility you could get "glitches" if you are playing video while recording on the same computer. Audacity works best when you can minimize multitasking while recording.

Re: Why does audacity convert 16 & 24bit files to 32bit float?

And for example if i open a 16 bit file and then export it again to 16 bit, isnt audacity gonna introduce unnecessary dither if it downsamples it again from 32bit?
Yes, there is the possibility of unnecessarily dithering, or dithering multiple times. You can optionally disable dither if you wish.

Re: No sound recorded from my casette deck

which I supposed was a combined one. Right... That's a combination mono-microphone input and headphone output. A regular headphone plug works for headphones but it takes a 4-contact TRRS plug to make the microphone connection so if you ever want to plug-in a microphone you'll need the right plug or...

Re: No sound recorded from my casette deck

(I’ve chosen Microphone Array-Realtek as input source.) That would be your built-in microphone. ;) ...Which probably means you have a laptop which probably means you don't have a line-input. You'll need a USB audio interface with line inputs. There are a couple of suggestions here . Or there are lo...

Re: Embedded Subluminals

I don't know anything about "subliminal binaural beats" but the MP3 is able to make a file 1/5th or 1/10th the size of the original is by throwing-away sounds that you can't hear. So if you want to preserve something that you can't hear it's best to avoid lossy compression. If I merge the two mp3's ...

Re: playback volume low

I will have to re-record the low volume files (that's OK...they are short). Assuming you don't have some kind of "serious problem" that's also causing sound quality problems... No! Just run the Amplify effect to amplify after recording. It's better to record a little low to leave some "headroom" to...

Re: MP4 files

You have to select M4A. Then if you wish, you can rename it to MP4 after saving. (M4A and AAC are also MP4.) I have downloaded the ffmpeg-win-2.2.2 Did you RUN ffmpeg-win-2.2.2 to install it? Then when you go to file -> Export -> Export Audio -> Save as type: you should be able to select M4A ( AAC) ...
