General Audio / Converting Adobe Audition 1.5 stretch ratio to Audacity 3.0.0 speed %
Last post by efc78 -

I know this is probably has a simple explanation but I need some help getting my head around it...
Could someone please better explain to me how to take the Adobe Audition 1.5 stretch ratio and convert it to a number that would accurately work in Audacity 3.0.0 as speed  %.

Many years ago I was told if you have an Adobe Audition 1.5 stretch ratio of 108.844 and you wanted to use that to change speed % in Audacity you'de simply write it as -8.844 %, however I have recently found the higher the number the less accurate this method becomes (I am not very experienced with ratios).
For example take a 1minute:00 .wav file and stretch in Adobe Audition 1.5 using ratio 108.844 and the output file changes from
1min:00 to 1min:5sec.30639, but if you take the same 1minute:00 ,wav file and change speed  -8.844% in Audacity 3.0.0  the output file is  1min:5sec.82122 (the Adobe output file and the Audacity output file resulting in 0sec.51483 difference).

I was also told that if speeding up you find the speed % by finding the difference of ratio between 100, so for example if you had an Adobe ratio of 91.875 you would use a speed change in Audacity of +8.125%, but in actual fact the correct speed change is +8.844%, so once again I would appreciate very much if someone could also please explain how to do that ratio to % conversion when also speeding up...

I don't believe either software is making an error (probably an error on behalf of the person who told me all those years ago the wrong method to use!).
Could somebody please explain how to understand this Adobe ratio better?, and how do I convert the Adobe stretch ratio to a number that would work more accurately as a speed % in Audacity 3,0.0.

CD Hardware/Software / Re: Enhanced Audio CD Help?

So you are not interested in burning back a copy, which used to be a frequently asked question.

Data sessions can be copied using your fave utility that grabs hidden and system folders and whatnot. But just like a random folder on a random hard drive can contain whatever, you will need to inspect it to find the content. (Is it possible to remux all Microsoft video formats into MKV?)

And some EnhancedCDs would contain ... well, your antivirus may object. Maybe false positives.
CD Hardware/Software / Enhanced Audio CD Help?
Last post by X-ray Doc -
I have a few enhanced audio CDs that contain music videos, concert footage, etc.  I would like to rip/extract these videos and ultimately convert them to an MKV file for my PLEX server.  Does anyone know how to do this?  I've attached a screenshot of one of the CDs when I open it with Windows 10 Explorer.

General Music Discussion / Re: What is for you the best album ever ?
Last post by salpro -
I was also of your opinion. This album had a good sound for its time. I even preferred  certain ACDC or eagles albums.
But after watching the documentary Classic Albums: The Dark Side of the Moon , I changed my vision of this album and I listen to it differently.

in order to have a working prefix you can't use the ie8 verb so the problem are still there.
Can you eloborate a bit more on this?


It doesn't download any data, allways gives this error

Code: [Select]
Biography Server: album cover: Killer / Alice Cooper: not found Status error: 12157
Biography Server: allmusic album review / biography: Killer / Alice Cooper: not found Status error: 12157
Biography Server: album review: Killer / Alice Cooper: not found Status error: 12157

Also you need to install msxml3 verb with ie8 to avoid the bio panel to crash.

Usefull to configure the bio but not for normal use.
