Recording!

We have six different programs that can record! We are only going to talk about three of them, but you may want to consider all six of them! (Power Record) (ePodcast Creator) (Voice SFX)

RipEditBurn Plus

RipEditBurn Plus is a wonderful program with many details. If you don’t know how to use all the details, read the following:

Rip Screen

RipEditBurn Plus

Click on the Rip icon, and click on Refresh CD and then click on Disc Lookup. Disc Lookup presents you with the entire CD. You can use Digital or Analog rip, Rip to Edit, Rip to Burn, and and Rip to Music Library.

Edit Screen

RipEditBurn Plus

Click on the Edit icon. You can record, edit, add effects, zoom into the part of the wave file you need to see, set the record device, adjust the volume of the recording or playback, even set the left/right volume for what you are recording.

The effects include Amplify/Deamplify, Bass Boost, Center Channel Removal, Chorus, Compression And Limiting, Reverb, Echo, Equalize, Fade In, Fade Out, Flange, Notch Filter, Mix, Mono To Stereo, Normalize, Note Scrubber, Pitch/Frequency Changer and Tempo Changer, Reverse (which reverses the sound), Scene FX (which puts the sound in various halls), Voice Changer (which really changes the voice, you’ve got hear it to believe it!), and Voice Warmer.

The tools include Vocal Reducer which can reduce vocals if they are in the center channel, Record Cleaner a plug-in that removes clicks, hum, pops, hiss and other noise from audio recording (yes, you have to have Record Cleaner installed), and Split Files into Tracks (yes, you have to have WaveBreaker installed).

Burn Screen

RipEditBurn Plus

Click on the Burn icon, and you will be presented with the CD burning screen. If you went from the Edit screen, it will ask you if you want to burn the wave files in the Edit screen. You can add tracks, delete tracks, clear the list, audition the track, normalize all the tracks, and- you can burn the CD!

Plus Screen

RipEditBurn Plus

Click on the Plus icon to get to the Plus screen. You can show files from Windows Media Library, iTunes Library, and many others. You can Audition the audio files, or add to Edit or add to Burn.

RipEditBurn

RipEditBurn is a powerful Wave and MP3 editor and sound recorder, which can rip and burn CDs, edit sound, convert your vinyl records and cassettes to CD, and much more.

No, it’s not quite as grand as RipEditBurn Plus which has Bass Boost, Compression and Limiting, Noise Gate, Low Pass, Scene FX (which puts the sound in various halls), and Voice Changer (which really changes the voice, you’ve got hear it to believe it!). If you don’t have any use for those effects, choose RipEditBurn.

The tools include Vocal Reducer which can reduce vocals if they are in the center channel, Record Cleaner a plug-in that removes clicks, hum, pops, hiss and other noise from audio recording (yes, you have to have Record Cleaner installed), and Split Files into Tracks (yes, you have to have WaveBreaker installed).

Wave Creator

Wave Creator is our most affordable recorder and editor. It’s a complete wave editor and recorder with cut, copy, paste, a 10 band stereo equalizer, and the ability to convert between MP3s and wave files. Our unique overview window allows you to find the part you want to edit quickly.

You can edit Wave and MP3 files including files from iPhones, iPads, and Android mobile phones and tablets. You can Record from all audio sources including Spotify, edit with professional tools and effects. You can put audio files on CD or iPod and use it to remove or reduce vocals from new and older recordings.

It doesn’t allow you to have more than one file open at the same time, but you might not want that.

Let’s go over some of the effects. Amplify is simple- you can either either amplify or de-amplify the sound:

Echo makes the file repeat at a slightly lower volume- it actually echos!

Equalize (EQ) sets the volume of different frequencies of the sound at different volumes:

Reverse actually reverses the sound, taking the ending point and putting it at the beginning point:

Sound Warmer warms the sound:

If you don’t have a MP3 player, we recommend NCH.

There is one tool, Record Cleaner, which removes pops and clicks, eliminates hum, reduces hiss, and has noise gate removal.

You might want to read my blog about Competitors. It features “Audio Record Wizard”- which is not much compared to Wave Creator!

And RipEditBurn and RipEditBurn Plus? They are way above Audio Record Wizard!

If you don’t have a MP3 player, we recommend NCH.
