So, this is sort of a follow-up to a question that I posed a couple of weeks ago. I currently have my 1880 going digital out to my computerís Audiophile sound card. I can get the tracks to play and the master out levels are reading on the M-Audio sound card window.

Now I need to use Sound Forge to burn my songs directly down to the computer and bypass my Que Drive. Iíve played around with Sound Forge, but Iím not completely sure what Iím doing with it; so, I figured that perhaps someone here with some experience in this could lend me some insight.

Any advice or assistance is appreciated in advance.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris does your sound forge have CD architect with it?

That's how I do CD's. Sorce recorded through Audiophile card into sound forge, I keep a 'dry' copy of the song, I do what ever edits and store that in a project file. When I get ready to burn a CD I fly those songs into architect.

The reason that I keep the unedited tracks is because sometimes as a project progresses I want to change some things to make the songs gel together better, so I can do this from the original and not chop chop and re-chop.

Iím not sure if it has CD Architect. Iíll have to check tonight, but I donít remember seeing that. My version is 7.0 btw.

Thanks,

Chris

CD Architect has been once-again bundled with SoundForge as of V8. It was originally that way...but they split it off and were selling it separately for a while. SoundForge 8 is also worth looking at because they have implemented VST support as well. In any case...better to do a .wav export rather than sending your audio through your soundcard (realtime) and of course SoundForge will read and open .wav files.

Chris:

You should contact Sony about upgrading to SF 8.0. I upgraded from 5.0 and they gave me both SF 8.0 and CD architect for the price of CD architect alone. Call the tech support people. They are very helpful.

The problem is that I only have a copy of Sound Forge (hacked); so, I can't exactly call the tech support folks.. at least I don't think that I should. . .This was included as an extra by a guy that upgraded my PC.

Memphis,

You need a 2480 to do a wav export. 1880 won't do it.

Your best bet is to record the 2 track mix in Soundforge (choose the MAudio as the input in the Audio section in Soundforge and then click the record button). Save the resulting project as a wav file. Then, use the wav file(s) to burn a cd with whatever cd burning software you have on the computer.

Alright, I figured out how to use Burn CD Track at Once, but now my problem is getting the track numbers to take on the CD. It's all coming out as one long stream of audio. I tried using the "drop markers" function as the audio was recording to SF, but it apparently didn't work like I thought it would.

If I place my CD markers on the mastered tracks in the VS will they transfer to SF?

Thanks,

Chris

No prob, man. I always record each song as a separate wav file and then assemble the cd with a different cd burning program, so I don't know how to burn a cd from Soundforge. I'll take a look tonight when I get home.

My problem is that my Windows Media Player won't read th SF wave file because it says that I need some Codec software or something to that effect. It also suggests that I lower my browsers security setting in order to read the files. . . WTF? . . . Well, at least I'm getting somewhere.

What is the bit depth and sampling rate of the wav file that you created? Make sure that you have converted it to 16/44.1 before trying to burn it as an audio cd.

Doug, maybe that's my issue.Is there a place in SF where I can convert the file?

Yeah, in one of the dropdown menus there is something called bit depth converter (or something like that). I always record at 44.1 sample rate so I never have to do a sample rate conversion. But there is something in SF that does that. Look around in the menus.

You can right click on the wav file and choose Properties. In one of the tabs in the Properties window, here should be some info on the bit depth and sample rate of the wav file.
