Easy CD/DVD Creator 6--how to use editor


ronlo

Recommended Posts

I'm new to computers as well as audio software. I want to capture old lectures from CDs, and strip off the background noise, then re-burn to a new CD. Does anyone have a cheatsheet with steps re how to do this? Also when I turn on Roxio, insert and begin to play my source CD, can I use the editor, and strip off background noise as I capture the source? Or do I have to capture the source CD lecture, THEN replay it using Roxio, and at that point use the editor? If I do this will the source lecture be saved, minus the backgound noise?

First it depends on the type of files on these CDs. If they are Audio CDs, you can capture them through Audio Central.

 

AC is also the editor, so that is where you will be working with the files.

 

Likewise you can burn a new Audio CD from there.

 

Best bet is to open AC and read through the Help files.

Thanks James. When I play the source CD (audio lecture-cda) I can hear it in my computer speakers (Sony Vaio) but see no green waveforms at all in the window like are shown in the help instructions. Does this mean the program is not capturing the source audio? Is there something I could check to correct this?

Thanks,

Ronlo

Ronlo: I do not have the Audio Central installed and have never used it. If someone with some capture experience wants to outline the steps, feel free to jump in.

 

The few Audio CDs that I have captured have been through Classic. You start with an New Music or Data CD project and insert the CD and select the Source Drive.

 

At that point the Convert icon will become active. Select the Tracks you want to convert and click the Convert icon. For best results select WAV for the output file and choose a location on your HD to put them.

 

When done, just close Classic and don't save the project.

 

Now you have captured the files and you can use Audio Central to do whatever cleanup you want. Save in AC and when you are ready, use AC or Classic to burn a Music CD.

Great! Thanks James, I'll have a go at it this way.
