Since upgrading to 1.3.2 Amadeus only opens the first portion of my files. Most of my files are just over 1 hour. In the Finder I can listen to the whole mp3 file. But when I open them in Amadeus I get 24 minutes, 13 minutes, whatever. Not the whole sound file.

The files are 1 channel mp3's recorded by a commercial sound recorder. Amadeus imports them as a single channel, then exports as dual-mono mp3 files.

They seem to work fine if I export to AIFF first with Quicktime, then import that AIFF file.

I thought perhaps Amadeus lost my license and I was working with a crippled version, but according to license Manager they're both there (Single User (U), and Amadeus II License).

Could you give me access to one of these files so that I can try to
reproduce this problem? Thanks,

http://24.79.230.127/~sawatzky/amadeuspro/1001.mp3
(1:08'14 file opens to 13 minutes)

http://24.79.230.127/~sawatzky/amadeuspro/1002.mp3
(1:16'04 file opens to 24 minutes)

As these files are opening, the progress bar indicates how much of the file has been opened, right? That progress bar is super accurate! If it make its way 1/4 across the full length before the files opens, that exactly how much of the file I can see!

File 1
1 -- it is not just AP 1.3.2 but also 1.3.1
2 -- I opened the file in Itunes and saved it as AIFF.
3 -- I opened the AIFF file in AII and got the full file
4 -- I saved as a mono mp3 file and then opened that file from AP --
full file

The 2 mp3 files are virtually the same size 40945xxx bytes vs 40936xxx
bytes. If I were going to make a guess, I would guess that the recorder
file isn't quite a "proper" mp3 file and that one decoder can accept
the flaws and the other can't.

Note, this is not based on any knowledge but just irrational beliefs.

Thanks for trying other versions of Apro and AII for me. I admit that the mp3 recorder might not be standard. It's hooked up to a soundboard, and records a mono file. No one knows how to set the date on the machine so the files come out of the machine with metadata that says they were recorded on 1943 or something like that.

I upgrade every time there's a new version available, but just started having problems with the latest.

One thing that HAS changed (come to think of it) is that these files were processed by someone else before I got them. They use Sony's Sound Forge on a PC to Normalize portions of the file. That creates standalone _.frg files that are supposed to be independent from the mp3 files. They point to the frg file to burn a CD. I take the original mp3 for my own processing. Maybe Sony SF is adding markers to the mp3 file that Amadeus has trouble with?

Hi, the tool mpg123 which is what Amadeus Pro uses to open mp3 files
gives the following error message:

Frame# 56352 [118369], Time: 24:32.05 [51:32.08], RVA: off, Vol:
100(100)Note: Illegal Audio-MPEG-Header 0x00000000 at offset 0xe09f10.
Note: Trying to resync...
Note: Skipped 1024 bytes in input.
[parse.c:622] error: Giving up resync after 1024 bytes - your stream
is not nice... (maybe increasing resync limit could help).
[mpg123.c:581] error: ...in decoding next frame: Failed to find valid
MPEG data within limit on resync. (code 2Cool
Frame# 56352 [118365], Time: 24:32.05 [51:31.98], RVA: off, Vol:
100(100)
[24:32] Decoding of test.mp3 finished.

Basically, the file is not a valid Mp3 file and mpg123 chokes on it.
Since QuickTime manages to somehow resync, I can file this as a
feature request to the development team, but the best is probably to
fix the source of the problem since it may bite you at some point
sooner or later... Regards,

Martin

Thanks, I've sent a note to our sound guy to request that they work on copies only. It's not good to have invalid originals! Sounds like Sony dabbling to frustrate competing sound software.
