AVS Audio Tools 5.4- User Guide and FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions - AVS Audio Tools
- I want to be able to copy/backup my original
CDs without any loss of musical information in conversion. Will the
program copy the original CD audio track without converting it (that
is PCM or CDA)?
You can easily do it using one of the AVS Audio Tools'
applications called AVS Audio CD Grabber.
Today's audio CD's store 44,100 samples per second. Since CD's are
in stereo, they store both a left and a right value 44,100 times per
second. These values are represented by 16 bit integers. In actual
fact there is no special CDA audio format. The audio *.cda tracks
are the same as Uncompressed PCM (ordinary .WAV files). Thus audio
tracks (.CDA) are ALWAYS stored on CDs in 44,100 kHz; Stereo; 16 Bit
Uncompressed PCM. So you see, it means that it is not possible to
record more than 80 minutes of audio on a single audio CD.
Set the output parameters for the files you want to grab as follows:
File Format: WAV (PCM) 44100 kHz, 16 bit, Stereo.
- How to take a music audio file without vocals
and lay my vocals onto that track and record the two together as a
separate track that I can then record on a CD?
If you want to put your voice record at some music
file, you can easily do it with AVS Audio Tools. Record the voice
file using AVS Audio Recorder and then use AVS Music Mix application
to put both files together. For that you should import both files
into AVS Music Mix and mix them using timeline tool.
- I have some WAV voice files that I am using in
a PowerPoint presentation for voice over. Can your application help
me to compress the files to a smaller size, so that they could still
be read by Windows media player?
The AVS Audio Converter application that is included
into AVS Audio Tools package is the very tool for conversion audio
files from uncompressed PCM (WAV) into a number of compressed formats
(MP3, MP2, OGG, WMA, etc). Choose the output format according to your
wish, try different variants. All of the output formats can be read
by Windows Media Player.
- How can I use AVS Audio Recorder to record from
microphone or to record streaming audio files playing on the Internet,
for example, in Real Player, QuickTime, Windows Media Player, etc?
The opportunities of recording depend on your sound
card parameters only. AVS Audio Tools does not limit the sound card
possibilities and supports all of the input lines supported by your
sound card. Check out your sound and sound card settings at:
Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices and find out what input
lines are available with your sound card:
Volume Control -> Options -> Properties -> Recording.
