    Hello,

    for previews and waveform/spectral displays only, I was thinking of doing peak-to-0dbfs normalization on all files.

    good idea?

    advantage: it shows the waveform in moredetail for very silent sounds
    disadvantage: the previews could become more noisy for silent sounds

    I attempted to upload multiple sound files via ftp and the connection keeps stopping. I am using a cable modem that is normally fast. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?

    Hi everyone, I love writing songs and I have various songs of different genres....How do I get hold of producers to publish my songs and most important how do I approach them. I do need the contact details of many of them so that I can approach them at large. I know that this is not easy …but I do have confidence in my lyrics and know that they have a chance.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

    I think it the gear is very importent to the out come of an overload!
    As I record digital (sometimes 32bit), I experienced that a digital overload can be a killer to a take!!!

    I can see that it's an oscillogram and that the upper part of it has been modified or tweaked, but is there any more specific information, some deeper meaning or symbolism?

    THIS sound is FREE, it braves the rule of that there can be no two y-coordinates for one x-coordinate! Freedom! Freedom!

    No seriously I have no idea. I think it's a nice toucht that the wave is non-standard though.

    I'm testing speaker quality for our media player through speakers on a cell phone.

    This is my current setup:
    A space of 18inches between the cellphone and a decibel reader.
    I would measure the db level at the exact same start and end points of a song and then figure the average db level.

    However, I started to think if I used a 1k tone (or something) I think I would have more accurate results without having such dynamtic results. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

    A point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks...

    I think there's a good chance it would fall under copyright violation. Its actually a curiosity myself I have with recordings of music boxes.(the windup things that play nice little mechanical music)

    I think it would be trouble some as well because you say its "clearly identifiable"

    If its minor background noise and there's other stuff going on it might be in the clear. I'm real unsure how films deal with these kinds of issues where something is shot and there is background music that they might not even be able to truly control. I guess it has to do with whether it is not really the emphasis of the recording.

    Reading this article about walruses ( http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/20/science/20walrus.html ), I was surprised to learn that they can be very musical. Noise from walruses anyone? Please?

    it's probably your username...
    our FTP server does not like all special characters...
    I thought it would like [ and ] but... perhaps not.

    let's see if we can change your username to something else and see if that helps.

    send me an email via the contact form about what you would like to be called wink

    Simply remove the [] mate, so my name is 'Mart1001', that's what I normally use on other forums that don't allow special characters.
    I'll mail you with this anyway.
    Cheers...
