mp3 files are very large

Another thought -- can you convert to mono? If so, the quality will be higher for a given bit rate.

burning a usable CD

I think the only way you are going to get what you want is to divide the files, preferably putting the markers at zero crossings and saving as an uncompressed file. I have never burned CDs from Amadeus as I use a different program, but I assume it will work. I am moderately sure you cannot get a smo...

Sound file increase over time

Assuming functions are the same in 2 as in AP 1 The simplest method is to use the fading--ramp function. Convert to 24 bits (probably not necessary but why not for manipulations Amplify the signal so that the end value is what you want use ramp function, putting in the reverse of the amplification f...

Making a Pre-Recorded Fade Out Into Uniform Volume?

I can't think of a way to do the whole thing but you could take a section, amplify it to maximum and then use the envelope command to lower the initial part to match the final part. As you can use markers and the envelope command has values, you may well be able to do a passable job. (of course at t...

export to iTunes not splitting at markers

Tell it to save the files as aif files -- assuming that the files are small enough -- 2GByte is the limit for aif files. Or you can create a batch process and convert all the files us amadeus.

Eliminating hum

Try doing a fourier analysis of your data where you aren't speaking. If there appear to be sharp peaks, set up notch filters to eliminate those frequencies.

How do I listen to once side of a stereo track?

There may be a simpler one, but you can split the tracks and then you have the option of muting (or setting the volume independently) for either track.

Adjust tempo?

Remember, Amadeus Pro knows nothing about tempos, frequencies, beats, etc. It is a sound editor and only knows "sound level" as a function of time. That said, there is a change pitch time option -- and yes, that option is, while not rocket science, is a fairly difficult mathematical problem and does...
