Easy Capture Assigns Wrong Recording Name


Mt. Pleasant

Question

I've had sporadic, but frequent issues with Easy Capture assigning erroneous information to the track that is recorded. We're recording Worship services at a church, the recording is original, not something pre-recorded, and yet easy capture will randomly assign information to one of our services that would seem to be for something that already exists. Other times, the recording is placed with a date assigned to it in a file were we established that it should, such as "recorded tracks".\

 

How can I stop Roxio from looking for existing information for raw new recordings?

I am sorry but I don't understand what you are describing. Could you perhaps give an example what you are talking about?

 

What do you mean by your last question?

Mt.Pleasant,

 

I understand.

 

There are three applications in Creator 2012 which will capture audio to a file. They are the Sound Editor {Edit Audio], the LP and Tape Assistant [Digitize LPs and tapes], and Easy Audio Capture [Capture Audio from Sound Card]. You seem to be using Easy Audio Capture [EAC].

 

The version of EAC in the Creator 2012 suite has been modified and 'simplified' and is now aimed at recording Internet audio. It appears to automatically try to match recorded tracks with audio tracks in the Internet database, and occasionally gets "false positive" identifications on some of your recorded tracks.

 

I've gone through all the 'options' menus but can't find a way for a user to turn off this "feature" in EAC. It might be that Sound Editor or LP & Tape Assistant don't go trying to look up your files on the Internet, since they're not 'Recording Internet Audio', but I haven't had time to test that so I can't guarantee anything.

 

Otherwise, not finding a user control for this I can only suggest [1] renaming your mis-named tracks in Windows, or perhaps [2] disconnecting from the Internet while recording your audio onto the computer.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Digital Guru,

 

Like you, I tried looking in the options menu, and found nothing that seemed to relate to this issue. Your suggestion of disconnecting from the internet is probably the best option. This will be a pain for those running the computer, but it should solve the problem, (i hope that it does). This assigning of erroneous info makes it a challenge to find the file to edit it for posting on our website, and for making cd's for shut-ins. I had a problem with this last Sunday's recording in that it never made it from easy capture to the folder. Somewhere an error occurred, and the file never made it. Not sure if there is anywhere I can try to resurrect this file from, but for now it's just MIA.

For me , Easy Audio Capture always captures the audio files in the folder that I specified.. The only problem that I have is that EAC will not accept the prefix name I am giving to the file but always defaults to the prefix "audio". Each succesive capture will have a name such as audio_1.mp3, audio_2.mp3. etc.

 

Exactly what "erroneous info" are you seeing? Could you post an example?

How are you capturing the audio? I assume via microphone?
