Hey guy's. I finally got around to tracking and converting my taped concert. I used audacity and traders little helper. I successfully got thru two sets. Now when I go to load up the third set it gets cut off at 44m33 seconds. when there is like 50 min of audio there. winamp is the only program that i have that even plays it past the 44:33 mark ?? why if there is audio there wont audacity load up the rest... ??? Is there any thing I can do ??:hmm:

strange... :hmm:

can you run a TLH len check on the original wav pls? (see checksums demystified if you're not sure how)

OK maybee I should be more clear. The wav file that i originally recorded is over 44:33 long. when I try to load it into audacity it only shows 44:33. every program I load it into says its 44:33 XMplayer, Windows media player.they will also stop playing at 44:33 Winamp says its 44:33 but will play the whole 50+ min. of audio that is actually there. I might just try to re-record a new wave file. I had used nero to record the wav from a minidisk going into line in.:hmm:

Oh yeah I try'd the TLH len check and it comes up with a 44:33 length file also. But I know there is more there???

heres a file analysis: in the len mode...

length expanded size cdr WAVE problems fmt ratio filename
44:33.493 707406386 B cxx -- --i-j wav 1.1075 AvengedSevenfold.wav

Not sure what the next step is. im pretty new at this. but the first two sets have turned out awesome so far.....

Sounds like a header issue, but I've never heard of one like that. Seen 'em play at the wrong spped, but never just part of the file. :hmm:

with some wrestling its possible to get winamp to spit out a wav file & splice it to the first 44 mins but in the end it will take a little longer and you have to ask yourself-- are there some subtle errors elsewhere in the corrupt wav file?

ps if you're using the crappy built-in soundcard on your pc you can get slightly better results by turning off your monitor during the recording ;)
