Re: Merging Numerous Tracks & Keeping Same Volume Settings in Amadeus Pro

Is there a formula to easily calculate the percentage of speed change per slot on the Playback Controller?

Re: Merging Numerous Tracks & Keeping Same Volume Settings in Amadeus Pro

I work frequently with files for which I use non-standard speeds in the Playback Controller. Is there a way to account for that when bouncing to a new document?

Re: Merging Numerous Tracks & Keeping Same Volume Settings in Amadeus Pro

Answering my own question: I see I had confused Bounce Track (Tracks menu) with the bounce Martin had actually recommended, Bounce Document (Sound menu). It does indeed look like the ideal solution to Mark's (and my) problem, although I haven't had a chance to listen to the resulting file yet.

Re: Merging Numerous Tracks & Keeping Same Volume Settings in Amadeus Pro

For Martin: How does Bounce Track work? I don't find mention of it in the manual, and the function is often greyed out.

Re: Merging Numerous Tracks & Keeping Same Volume Settings in Amadeus Pro

I've had the same problem, and use the same solution as you. However, when recording the multitrack file be sure to diminuate the playback volume, as it's likely to distort otherwise. And then, of course, Normalize the level in the resulting file. All this might take a couple of extra steps than a m...

Re: Faster Way to De-Noise Vinyl Recordings?

I have had good success with the RX6 Declick plug-in from Izotope. It basically performs an Interpolation on signal portions that fall within user-set frequency parameters, and which the program determines to be blemishes. I've found the controls confusing, but with trial-and-error have gotten good ...

Mix down to stereo wav file?

A couple of questions regarding functions in the fourth section of the Tracks menu: * What is the difference between Apply Envelopes and Bounce Track? They seem to do the same thing for me. (Alas, I don’t find these functions mentioned in the manual.) * Is there a way to apply such settings as tra...

Mix down to stereo wav file?

Did you try saving it in Amadeus format? That’s usually the best way to preserve proprietary features such as multiple tracks, envelope settings, etc. If you want to fold down to a single track (whether M or S), there are several ways to do so. My preferred method is to set the playback volume at ...

How to equalise loudness across a number of voice recordings

Phil's good idea gave me another one ...that it would be good in any case to have – as well as 26 short recordings... to reflect on each (as a nugget!) – a full legth recording of 2hrs or so which could be made by joining the files. So thanks for that...and for the 'by eye' way of evaluating noti...

How to equalise loudness across a number of voice recordings

A technique I use in similar situations helps me quickly gain a sense of which files in a batch require boosting and vice versa. It’s also very simple: Use Sound menu > Join Files to open all the files as one long file. (Perhaps best to do this close to the end of your processing process.) When yo...

Easiest way to eliminate one channel

Another method which you might find simpler is to select the track that you want: * Place cursor anywhere within that track, then Select All Then copy it to a new file: * if on Mac: cmd-shift-C Then simply save into your preferred format.

Question about fadings

I handle this type of situation all within a single track. I set a marker shortly before the start of a new song, select the last two seconds (of active sound, as opposed to 0 space) or so of the previous track, and fade that. I then listen back to see if the fade sounds natural. Adjustments I make ...

Can someone explain this error message?

I asked this same question here about two weeks ago. The fact that I didn't get a reply suggests there is no known resolution for the bug at this time.

DRBurnSetupPanel

I've been trying to establish a new CD-making formula since the Catalina OS has overcome my use of Toast. One advantage of a dedicated burning program such as Toast is that I could easily shift tracks around to try different sequences, and try different timings between specified tracks (as opposed t...
