Re: 1 minute test

I'm not sure if this helps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x4efDUf8qI Obviously you'd only have one track, while this guy has 7. But I'm assuming the mono/stereo toggle would be the same. Thanks. I've used all those toggles. Everything that I can find is set to mono. When I play it back in the pr...

Re: 1 minute test

First off. I want to thank you for patience! I think I've got it this time! I can HEAR that it is in mono. I've gone back to normalizing....and everything else remained the same. Here goes:

Re: 1 minute test

Hi cowguy02! I think I figured it out. The stereo/mono problem was a simple click of a button....but when bouncing the file to in mono, I discovered the volume had terrible peaks and troughs. So, I decided NOT to NORMALIZE the file. My only remaining concern is that now it may not be loud enough. Le...

Re: 1 minute test

Ok, my husband is the boss in our studio and he doesn't want me downloading any new programs.

I recorded a new take...adjusting the volume, setting it to mono on the bounce, and using 128

Check it out

Re: 1 minute test

Thanks for the feedback! I will poke around. I'm sure I can figure it out. I don't understand the GAIN part though. Shouldn't I just re-record and set the gain lower? Why do I need to load it into this other program?

thanks,
Sandra

Re: [Group]The Flowers of Shakespeare - philc

What a beautiful, clean sound. The Checker program identifies 3 problems with the recording, however. Things easy to address. One needs to record in mono mode and at a 128kpbs bit rate. Also, the program says that your volume is outside the preferred range. I'm not the best tech guy ever born, so s...
