Re: BBC PPM

For my money I'd love old-fashioned VU meters Maybe you haven't been burned enough times. NBC-VU-IMG_0456-500T.jpg I used to be a fan of VU meters, or more accurately, "VU Damped Sound Meters," until I got officially corrected as to their use for the television air show. That was a wake-u...

Re: Clicks and stutters in playback

Anyone else having these issues? Everybody has these issues. Audacity isn't a very good data warrior. It's not good at battling its way past a million other computer services all competing for machine resources. Here are the specs of the onboard audio driver. You are warned against microscopically ...

BBC PPM

Re: Overdub + Clipping Issues

And yes, you're perfectly correct, a common cause of overdubbing overload is recording the backing track along with your new performance by accident. It's so common, that the next message over from this one, as I write this, is suffering from that exact problem.

Re: Overdub + Clipping Issues

Another metering note. There are two types of meter. In General, recording is done with the graded color meters (shown). Those start changing color as your volume increases and end an angry red as you get too close to overload. Playback is generally done with the two-tone green meters, Peak and RMS ...

Re: Overdub + Clipping Issues

each track separately, the volume is adequate As DVDdoug, above, You can record the individual performances with good volume to avoid backgrund noise and overload problems, but you can't mix them that way.

Re: tuning an mp3 file into silent subliminal

so can i take the mp3 file You can take the MP3 file and listen to it. That's the intended pathway. MP3's full family name is MPEG-1, Layer-3. It's the music track for a video. Using it to make another product—using it in production—is always going to create unstable conditions and that's the last ...

Re: High pitched laptop fan ruining my podcast

You have another variation in all this. I don't hear any high-pitch interference—or at least nothing very serious, or nothing that shows up on the analysis tools. Maybe one of the other elves with better analysis can generate a notch filter to selectively suck out one or two single tones. make sure ...

Re: tuning an mp3 file into silent subliminal

You didn't say what the job was. If it's to affect other people's behavior without them realizing it, then you have just talked your way out of Audacity Forum Help. There is a successful way to clinically affect behavior, but it's not popular because it's a lot of work with a staff and not fooling a...
