inserting track breaks

Postby jeffallen » Mon Apr 30, 2007 10:14 pm

Hi I'm new to music reproduction and am looking for a simple way to insert track breaks in long pieces of music. Simple I hear the scoffing cry, my files ate macintosh AIFF or AAC or Windows WMA files. I hve both Audacity & Wave corrector, but cannot seem to resolve file conflicts to start with although, I believe the track inserts should be a sync with wave corrector, ant genuises out there that can help will be life long best buddy, thanks newby, Jeff

I've already sent this by private email but I've copied it here in case thers are interested.

The first thing to bear in mind is that it not advisable to edit files after they have been converted to a compressed format (eg AAC , MP3, WMA). This is because the files need to be uncompressed for editing and then re-compressed for saving. Doing this leads to a deterioration of quality.

Therefore you should aim to only edit uncompressed files - ie WAV files on a PC and AIFF files on a MAC

Because Wave Corrector is a PC based program, if cannot directly handle AIFF files. However, it is fairly simple to convert between AIFF and WAV. Because they are both uncompressed formats, there is no loss of quality when doing so.

Because Audacity is a cross-platform program, it can handle both formats. Therefore you can load a file you want to convert into Audacity and save it in the corresponding format.

Alternatively, there are a couple of small PC based freeware programs you can use to do the conversions. See:

Having converted your files to wav format, you should be able to load them into Wave Corrector and split them into separate track files. By default, these will be saved as individual WAV files but you can save in other formats using external encoders. This is a little complicated but is explained in the help files.

If you wanted to, you could save directly to AIFF using this (external encoder) method. If you would like to do this, let me know and I'll explain how.
