  1. Numbering Split Files

    I am no help with iTunes, but would recommend using the accepted standard for numerically labeling tracks: instead of '1' use '01', '2' use '02' etc. "Instead of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, etc., they are listed as, 1, 10, 11, 12,13, 14, 15, 16,17, 18, 19, 2, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 3, 31, etc." When propagating many programs/ devices will behave just as you describe here; labeling the single digits with a zero before will fix this issue.
  2. Help mixing songs- NEWBIE

    I'm not familiar with the app, but here is how I do it on my desktop (windows): With the window for song B open, right click, 'select all' and 'copy.' Then activate the song A window, position curser at the end of that file, and paste. Re-name the new file (song C) (to preserve the original song A.)
  3. Tracking is off

    I have never burned an mp3 disc, and I don't know if this might help, but maybe.. Have you tried re-naming the tracks (in the original folder) so the titles start with numerals; for example, '01. song title' ? Then I believe they will be easier to order in the burn window. Did the conversion to all 128kbps free up enough space for one cd?
  4. I thought I should come back and update this thread. My visibility issues were not the fault of WavePad, and easily resolved through the Windows 10 Control Panel>Ease of Access Center.
  5. Again, I don't know much experience with WMA files, but must assume you have reason for wanting to convert them to mp3 - the main reason that I could imagine is that WMA files wouldn't playback on a particular device and you wish to have files with a less restrictive format. I have no advice for working with files that have 'protection'. As regards potential quality loss, it would seem that you don't have much choice. You are converting an already compressed file format to another (lossy to lossy.) The best bet, while impractical on a grand scale and not what you are asking about!, would be if you had the original 'lossless' files - then convert them to mp3 to begin with. Anyhow, your inquiry had me do some research on things I didn't know, so thanks for that. Best of luck!
  6. NCH Wavepad Window

    Please note that I have no affiliation with NCH - I am just a fellow user of some of their products; I periodically check the respective forums for the software I use daily, in hopes that I can learn more and/or assist others in doing so..... I guess I am out of my depth here, I'm not familiar with WordPad, which is a microsoft product, nor with NCH's Express Scribe (which from a quick overview would seem to be useful in your task.) Why would you be using WavePad for your work?
  7. Without getting into a discussion about WMA file conversion, of which I have limited experience, I would just like to point out that Switch offers the ability to save at a variety of bit rates, from 8kbps to 320kbps. The obvious answer to your query would be 96kbps. And that ain't high fidelity.
  8. NCH Wavepad Window

    Assuming you are on a windows platform (as am I - I can't verify with mac, but I assume it is the same) - I hope my response won't be taken as gruff or rude, but how familiar are you with windows? You can only perform a function in an active window. Switching between working in Word and WavePad (or any other program you have open on your desktop) is just a normal activity which requires clicking on that window (or it's icon in the task bar), and certainly not specific to WavePad. I cannot think of anything that would respond except when it is the foremost and active window.
  9. Customize pauses?

    You can only set one customized pause gap for a burn session. The same gap will be applied between each track (which can be 'gapless' by choosing "0".) If you wished to get more creative, you could edit the tracks in WavePad and add different amounts of silence at the end of different tracks, then when burning choose "0" as the Track Pause. edit to add: regarding getting 2 lps on one cd - the maximum length of an lp side is @ 22 minutes. If the total of the four sides you wish to burn onto a cd isn't longer than @ 79:98 minutes, you should be fine. I have often edited tracks in WavePad to trim a project to fit on cd. Have you already digitized the lps to your computer? Golden Records is the NCH program I use to do this.

  11. I have no idea if these will help you with your task, but you could start with this one and poke around on youtube; there's a few more there.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vpr_sv3YNx8
  12. WavePad Vs. Sound Tap

    To transfer from cassette to computer, the NCH program best designed for this would be Golden Records, although SoundTap would work also. as I just posted in your other thread, try using shortcut key 'F1' to access the online help menu.

    huh, I have version 5.1 on my windows 7 machine, where there is a blue ? link. on my windows 10, runninng WavePad version 6.33, there is a link in the upper right corner. Try using shortcut key 'F1'

    In the upper right corner there is a blue question mark (?) which is the link to the online help menu. If you can't find what you are looking for there, feel free to post in this forum. You may well get help from one of the NCH staff or another user.
