  1. When you click "Save File As", the 'Save Audio File As' window opens. Here you choose the file's name and destination, and in the 'Save as type:' dropdown choosing MPEG Layer-3 (*.mp3) and clicking the 'Save' button will open the MP3 Encoder Options dialogue box. This is where you choose the attributes you want.
  2. Perhaps I'm misinterpreting your comments, but setting a destination folder for your work should be common practice, and something that one anticipates before pressing 'Save/Save As'.
  3. NCH has tutorials on youtube. Although your version of the software may differ, it might help exploring.... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM-ko9RGEg5xvDCSyJu7QhQ
  4. I'm not sure what you mean by 'cuts', but are you zooming in to look closely at the waveform to determine where you wish to make such an edit? Also, I guess I don't have any idea to which you are referring, because never have I had few/or any seconds of silence playing a file in WavePad. Are you perhaps working with an mp3 file? Just an anecdotal inquiry....
  5. I guess if you were trying to overlay the tracks mixed together, then MixPad. But for merging into one track, where they play one after another, I'd think WavePad would be the better option?
  6. In all my years using WavePad and splitting large tracks into smaller ones I have never used any bookmarks; I always use the 'Split File at Cursor' function. This creates a new track and I work my way through from there. After any final editing I then rename and choose a save to destination. I don't know if this might help you with your issue though!
  7. First off, man you should have recorded that music in a better format than mp3! What were you thinking?! And why the reproduction protection for your own recordings, on your own computer? (sorry to poke you with that after all this time) Second, are you using a mac or pc? (mainly because the terminology and processes might vary) NCH's Switch software proposes to be able to convert .cda files. Have you tried extracting the files from the cds via any other method (I again refer back to inquiring about your platform - mac/pc)
  8. Is your computer an upgrade - ie: windows 7 to windows 10, or something similar to that scenario? Well then you might just have to bite the bullet and purchase an upgrade to the software.
  9. RC I believe you are referencing an issue you are experiencing with VideoPad - not WavePad?
  10. gosh, I wish folks would make their own post to inquire, complain, compliment or whatever about the software. Every time I see this return I feel regret; not with the program, but with my original post. "I was unable to save the .wpp file as a .mp3 file" I'm not sure why or exactly what you mean, but the .wpp extension refers to saving the 'project'. If you have a file open in WavePad, you can choose 'Save File As' and specify the folder destination, give it name, and choose the file type (Save as type) While I won't get into comparisons with audacity on this forum, I do find both programs useful in my workflow and regularly use them in conjunction. No worries about expiring licenses - if you have purchased the software it is recommended to retain your id /license info just in case, or for transferring to another computer. Note that if you are upgrading your system you may have to repurchase the appropriate version (ie. when I left behind my windows 7 for a windows 10 machine I needed to upgrade) ps. I would certainly not qualify nch software as 'expensive', unless perhaps you are comparing it to 'freeware'. ❤️ Dan
  11. You could use a static photo/image for the duration of the file, but you will need to use another program to do so. I imagine that VideoPad would be the appropriate NCH software for this.
  12. Are you possibly working with m3 files? I think those have been known to sometimes have extra silence added, although I can't say why, or what to do (other than some tedious editing in WavePad)
  13. I concur; I archive lossless files as flac. For general use on my portable player I convert to 320 CBR mp3 (or the highest VBR - files are a bit smaller, although I'm not sure how much difference it makes for my use)
  14. I had a more detailed explanation in mind, but for simplicity... I use 'save as' for the first file, give it a new name, choose file type and a folder destination. Then I will click on the second file to have it as the active window, and choose 'save all files'. Now the destination folder will be default, and if you name each files with ascending numerical names at the start, they will stay in the order they are created.

    File Size Limit

    Have you tried the minimize/maximize buttons on the top right of the open file window (not the program window) ?
  16. I apologize for not knowing what to recommend. I've used WavePad for many years, but never have saved a 'project.'
  17. Whenever you do an edit on a file, you should use 'save as' and give the edited file a new name, so as not to overwrite the original.
  18. I am compiling a response will report back later tonight....
  19. Personally I don't use bookmarks. I place the cursor at the spot where I wish to start the next 'track', and (in the Edit menu) choose "Split file at cursor". Then in the new track I repeat the process. After fine tuning my edits, I will rename and save the new files to a new folder.
  20. My approach when wishing to speed up burning multiple copies of the same disc is to just load a copy of the folder/files to the other computer via flash drive. Then you can burn from both simultaneously (and independently.)
  21. This query would certainly more appropriately addressed in a post of its own, not adding to this one! My first question/suggestion: are you saving just the WavePad project? If so, you may want to try saving the file (save file as) in a format suited to your MixPad project. I'm not very familiar with mixpad, so it's just a thought. Good luck.
  22. While I admit to never using bookmarks (so apologies if my post is irrelevant to your query) what you are describing is easily accomplished otherwise. Place the cursor at the spot you wish to begin the selection and drag to where you wish to end. Delete. Refine as necessary. And - Always when manipulating a file, choose 'save as' so as to maintain (not overwrite) the original.
  23. Which version of WavePad are you using, and are you using it on a pc or mac? Here is a link to a past thread which may be of some use to you: http://nch.invisionzone.com/topic/25332-how-to-change-stereo-balance/
