What's the best thing if you don't want to buy the SF bundle to do noise reduction? I record off my TV card, convert the files to wav from mpeg-2, and it sounds as bad as a casette tape. The audio gets a little crackle at times also. I never hear the noise when I listen directly with a cheap 13 inch TV but it gets bad on the computer card and files. I thought TV through rabbit ears was bad until I started going digital with recording from the cable line.

Hi Neal.

Studio Recorder sells for $200.

It is true that you can use other audio editors, but we are doing what
we can to make the functions that are not accessible usable.  take, for
instance, the audible clip indicator.  That one little feature alone is
something you will find nowhere else.

Brent, I am not sure where you get Sound Forge for $25.  If you do,
sure it's not the full featured version, but I would like to know
Also, I was not trying to make the case that one was better than the
other.  I do think, however, the Studio Recorder has made some real
strides forward and that should be complimented.  For example, when I
heard the first podcast Rob made on it some time ago, I said, "Nice,
not quite good enough to interest me."  Now, even though it does not
some of the really high end stuff sound forge does, it is beginning to
do a lot of things that sound forge does and, in some instances like
graphic fades, it is making it easier for a person who is blind to do.
And, while I am at it, this is not necessarily a product just made for
people who are blind.  I know you weren't saying otherwise, but I
to comment on this anyway.  It is the same product APH uses in their

Keep up the good work, guys.  By the way, what is the price for Studio
Recorder anyway?

I love the beta, but don't see what it would do that just paying $25 for sound forge won't. I use it mostly for clipping commercials off of TV and radio I record before I listen to it.

Wow! I keep being more and more impressed with what Rob is doing with
Studio Recorder.  I just may have to put down my money and be totally
confused trying to remember if I am in Sound Forge or Studio Recorder.

One of the very nice features, there are many, is the faders.  As
Forge people know, if you want to create really complex fades that do
not happen to be in the preset fades, you have to have sighted help
running the silly computer mouse along and trying to operate a graph.
You should listen to what the Studio Recorder guru has done to make

Rob, I do have one question, well at least one, but I'll save others
later.  In your normalize and compression routine, if you normalize to
say plus 5, do you get to control anything about the compression such
attack and release time, or is it simply using a default value?

Also, do you have to own the product to download the beta version.  If
you do, I thought i remembered that there was a trial version one
try for a few days.  Is the trial version the new version you
in the podcast?

thanks for a lot of good work.  No wonder we haven't heard from you on
the list for a wile.
