Spin Doctor Capture Support - There But Silent


ken_clinger

Question

I recently installed Spin Doctor on my new iMac (2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo), and followed the instructions to set up Capture Support. It's there as a selected input, but there is no sign of input (I have streamed music playing from a web page), like there is for the microphone (if I make any sound at all) or the built-in input (if I have it hooked up to the output of my MD deck). My CD Spin Doctor is 5.0.1.617t, and I have OSX 10.5.3. (I've had to download updated software for pretty much all my software, so I'm half-expecting this to be the case with Capture Support, but this seems to be the latest release.) Any suggestions?

Once again thank you. A further one though - you must get sick of these - I save files in a folder and drag and drop files to iTunes>Library>Music (in iTunes screen). Some files will transfer but others will not - same recording method etc. Can you help on this please? 2mce

There is a button in Spin Doctor to send the tracks straight from Spin Doctor to iTunes. The only reason I can think of that iTunes would not accept a file saved from Spin Doctor as you describe is if iTunes doesn't see it as an audio file. Do the files that iTunes doesn't accept have the .aif or .aiff extension at the end of their file names? If not, add those extensions in the Finder and see if they now will be accepted by iTunes.

tsantee most helpful - How and when do you run noise.click/pop/suppress?

Noise filtering is done after the recording is completed. You can apply the filters to individual tracks or to the entire recording. The apply button is at the bottom of the filters panel. You preview the filters by wearing headphones and playing the selected portion of the waveform while adjusting the filter settings. I activate Loop Playback in the Controls menu.

When using capture support the level of the input is set by whatever application is providing the audio. For example, if using QuickTime Player to play an audio file you need to use its volume slider to set the peak point in Spin Doctor. The level indicator in Spin Doctor shows signal strength for me.
