I need to import a file recorded on an iphone audio recorder app (one that was recommended) and outputs MP3. I send it to my computer as an MP3(plays fine), then I import into AUD and it just gives me a “SSSHHHPP” sound. The 5:02 file is now .05 seconds. I did a test 30 second file and it’s the same thing.
What did I click / not click? Tried to import as RAW and it does not work either, longer file but just noise.
Excited to start podcasting but hard with no audio!!!
Did that help? Did I miss any steps? In any event, you should not be doing live production in MP3. MP3 is a compressed format and demands you set a sound quality when you make the first one. The problem is the quality goes down every time you edit or change an MP3. Use WAV (Microsoft) 16-bit for all the production work and then export the final edit for posting and sharing.
OK, it seems the later versions of Audacity and FFMpeg have no trouble with Apple CAF files (Yay!)
This was a raw voice test I shot. It passes ACX Audiobook conformance although nobody in their right mind would OK it for publication.
