Sound Editor Closes After Export


krus54

Question

I may have an idea on what is causing this problem, but need help to identify if I'm correct and if there's a solution.

 

 

I have imported several clips into a mix. One of those clips is a song I downloaded from iTunes and converted to MP3. I have made several changes to the mix and kept saving my work in different names (i.e. Song1.wav, Song2.wav, etc). Now when after I have saved the project and try to export the clip (I have joined the clips), Sound Editor closes on me and the wav file, while it appears to be there (the size is about correct) will not play and it will not import into my VideoWave production.

 

Is this because the song I downloaded from iTunes can only be copied a certain number of times and now I've reached the limit of saving it into new files? If this is the problem, is there a way around this? I'm constantly tweaking this mix.

 

If this is NOT the problem does anyone have ANY ideas what else could be causing this?

 

Thanks,

Dave

What you need to do with iTunes and any of the other music download sites is download from the site, to a CD (RW is preferred), then rip the songs to your hard drive as wav files. Use a CD-RW, because you can erase the disk after you rip the songs to your hard drive.

 

Hi Bruce,

I was just logging in to delete my original note because I had actually tried your suggestion before reading it! I started a new Sound Editor project. I have about 4 clips (none of the songs copy protected after fixing the one iTunes song). I was right in the process of editing one of the clips (cutting part and then doing a fade in) and Sound Editor just closed on me...exactly as it had done last night. I was up till 2am last night working on this!

 

Could there a bug in this or some other incompatibility? I have a fairly new Dell loaded with a LOT of memory and hard drive space so I can't imagine that's a problem. Any other ideas?

 

Thanks!

 

Dave

That does seem odd. Try doing a Repair on the software, through Add/Remove Programs. Make sure that you click on Change, not Remove, if you decide to try the Repair.
