Hey folks,
I am having a problem downloading an mp3 music file - it plays normally with my other media players, but when I try to download it to my artoonix project, the first 15 seconds do not record- the song always starts late- what am I doing wrong- i do not see a setting - up until now the songs have all been starting properly?
thanx
se

I hardly imagine such situation but may it is some kind of special mp3. Anyway, just for a check (and to get some symptoms) - could you try to import this file in a temporary empty project? Do you have a gap when you preview or when you watch the result movie?

Thanx for your reply,
Yes that was the first thing I did-
I will try another conversion- the MP3 file works on the Windows Media program- so I am puzzled
cheers

Hey,

I stumbled onto the issue regarding importing audio files- at least this makes sense- and I was able to solve the problem.

When I was getting a bad recording, I had been grabbing the raw audio file from the CD of my computer's Explorer, and \"converting it' with an audio program to MP3.

When I \"ripped\" the raw audio file from the CD directly, it recorded perfectly onto Artoonix.

So the lesson to be learned is- with all the differennt audio files floating around- it is best to rip as closely as possible to the source- like rip directly off the CD and not from your computer .....as a rule!

It seems this is the "weak link". Did you try another converter?

Hey,
yeah, a couple of them.
The format that my multitrack uses for \"cutting\" a CD is .cda, which works on just about every piece of equipment that I have played the CDs on, including the car, Walkmen (remember those?!) and the TV disc player, etc,etc.

Some converters I used do not recognize it! So I use - I think it is called- FreeRip ( I am at the office) . They claim to clean up any \"anomalities\" in the tunes- and so far they are right- as long as the rip is directly from the CD.

My tech buddy says that it is always better to be \"closer to the original recording\" when doing copy work.
thanx
