I have just installed Audacity 2.0. Am trying to follow how to install Lame encoder dll. I think I almost had it. From it’s folder I moved the dll into the Audacity base folder in Windows > Program Files
Record in Audacity opened right up and with 2.0 showed both channels going.
then my test file produced the error that Lame 3.99 is out of date.
Also, why does the output graph look upside down?
Well, back the Lame. I have looked at the install FAQ and have become confused. I could not see where or how the lame.exe opened to get the install to Audacity completed whether 3.99 or anything else. Clicking on the Lame icon simply winks but does not open. Consider this my first post here. The forum looks pretty new yet.
As to using search, I was never any good a picking key words.
I managed to find a pdf with some instructions but have still failed.
The pdf says go to
audacity > edit > preferences (at bottom) and do something with a file preference tab. The preferences setup box does not show anything related to files but shows ‘preferences:devices’ at the top of form.
The basic 4 steps listed for Windows should be all that you need.
When you go to the Lame download page, ensure that you follow the instructions closely and download from the text link that says “Lame_v3.99.3_for_Windows.exe”
Ok, If i read your first post correctly then you are trying to manually open Lame. If so then that is one of the problems, Audacity will call and open Lame.exe when it needs it.
Google the following name. After you D/L it you will run it. it will ask for a folder to install it in. the default is C:Program FilesLame for Audacity. do not change that. Then run Audacity and it should work fine. The user does not open the file, Audacity does that automatically
Sorry that was not a link. it is what you need to google or bing to get to the link. once you D/L that. then you will double clik on it and it will install. I hope that is what you really need I am a novice on the board, i do not work with the Staff. just an old man that put in 20 years as a CSR and found out that some times the really smart people will get a little technical with people that are new to a program. I do not mean any disrespect to anyone with that statement.
If you D/L’ed the installer the just double click on it and it will install to the right place. I do not know anything about the other devices that you have on your system.
double click on the installer and let it do it’s work
From what you say it has been accomplished with no harm done.
The description of the uninstaller at the site mentions that it cleans registry entries as well. But for safety I would try through Windows first.
I’ve no idea what Goldwave does as I don’t use it.
In Audacity, if you want to record for a specific period, use Timer Record.
Normally with Audacity you would just press stop (or spacebar) when you want the recording to stop rather than using the Time Record feature.
If that’s the case I would be doing manual stops anyway. What made me ask was that one of the first things I did with Audacity was use the noise sample to make a file for audio speaker break-in. I thought that short sample length had to be adjusted. Because I didn’t know any better, I took the short sample and put it on continuous loop (repeat) using VLC.
