Blackhole installation

Good morning, I downloaded and attempted to install Blackhole on Mac OS 10.15.3. It fails with dialog: "Blackhole.driver" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software need to be updated. Contact the developer for more information. Is it just me? Thanks Wayne Du...

.m4b format

Good afternoon, I use AP to break .amad files into several files, splitting according to markers that I assign. These go to iTunes as .m4a files. Once there I convert them to type Audiobooks for use in iBooks on my iPhone. I can save some steps if the file type is .m4b instead of .m4a. Apparently th...

Answering my own question, I believe the problem was that Amadeus Pro was pausing during recording when communications with the external drive used for Temp Files were bogged down. Perhaps slow transfer rates, or full buffers. In any event I changed the disk to be used for Temp files to a different ...

Recordings have gaps not present on original

Hi, I'm an inveterate listener of Audible.com audio books. I download my purchases to my computer, and then record and reformat them to short chunks of .m4a for use on an iPod Shuffle. Playing the Audible .aa file on the Shuffle is a problem, since inadvertently hitting the 'Back' button takes me ba...

Feature request

I often record audio files and break them up into several .m4a files for my iPod. The way I do this is to add markers at appropriate points, and rename the markers (Modify Markers) according to a scheme 'fn 001'. AP will then name the markers 'fn 001', 'fn 002', and so to the end. The problem is if ...

Sorry, I mangled that last post. I meant to convey that my problem was a broken wire in one of my headphones.

I had a similar problem once. Fortunately, just before I hit Send to post the problem I decided to reverse the headphones and discovered the problem was now in my left ear.

Lost Recording when using timer

After playing around a bit I think I see the problem. When you make a new recording using menu Sound > Record to New File ... and then record using the Start/Stop button, each time you Start it appends to the file. That is, record a minute, stop, start again, record a minute, yields two minutes of r...

When I asked "Undo what?" I meant that the "Undo" action doesn't apply to such things as "start recording again". It seems you can't un-start something that you have started. Like a lot of things in life. Many applications let you revert a file to a previous state, but there doesn't appear to be a f...

Lost recordings

Here's the sequence: I recorded five + hours of audio using "Sound: Record to New File …". I set the Timer (sometimes to stop after a period of silence, sometimes after an elapsed time). The recording terminated according to my setting in the Recording dialog "Timer". I wasn't watching when it termi...

Forum list digest spam

Good afternoon, Lately my digests have had an increasing amount of spam included. I just received a lengthy one that was, I believe, 100% spam. I say "I believe" because if there was any content, I couldn't find it. Is there any way to stifle these people? Doesn't one have to be a registered member ...

Re: Removing tape hiss

My problem appears to have been caused by the short duration (1 s) of noise in my file. [I meant to say "the one second of noise that preceded the 400 Hz signal been that had merged with noise." Subsequent references to "the noise" are to that one second piece I put there for sampling.] After gettin...

Removing tape hiss

I tried to create a simple audio file to let me experiment with this issue, but what I got wasn't what I thought it was. I created a track 10 s worth of 400 Hz sine wave at 50%. I generated another track of white noise at 2%. I then merged the two tracks. Sure enough, it sounds like a nice tone with...
