Capturing Audio On "convert Tapes And Lps"

Question

I can captue audio beautifully on EMC9, using "Soundmax Digital Audio" device, but cannot open it to use with EMC10. I have to record on to another program and then import it.

 

Also, I am laying Narration tracks on to a video, but when I play the video, sometimes a word has a syllable missing. I first record on to a Mini-CD using an anechoic chamber to deaden any acoustic, then raise the pitch of my voice by a semitone (musical term for "from one note to the next"), and then pass it through a bandpass filter to remove any bass, thus making it sound as if I am in the open air talking on camera. Do I need to alter the bit-rate? If so, in which direction and by how much?

Hope someone can help.

Yours ever,

Mike (Cooke)

I don't think that how you recorded it is an issue. When you play the CD, are all the words there?

 

One thing to try (my solution for the week) is to turn down the audio acceleration on your computer. Since you want the best possible sound, you may want to experiment on how far down you turn it.

 

Windows>Start>Run>type in dxdiag> Click OK> when the new window opens, go to the sound tab and move the slider to the left. To experiment to see if this is the issue, turn it all the way down. If that solves the problem then you can turn it up until you have the problem.

 

Update DirectX 9c from Microsoft if you have not down so recently. (DirectX 10 for Vista) and the driver for that SoundMax chip.

 

From what you posted above, you don't have a sound card ! You are using a audio chip. You should consider getting a stand alone card. You can put one into a desktop computer in a few minutes. There are external cards for laptops but I have never used one.
