Technical Support / Not saving
Last post by Sonvolt - April 06, 2024, 09:17:59 PM
Hi Paul,

On 14.05 beta 2 , I get an error when saving tracks  (screenshot attached) with my way of recording albums.

A single album I would record as 1 file (side one only) , and a double I would record album 1 as side as 1 and the second album as side 3. This was never an issue before but now I get an error as can't find side 2  so tracks are not saved. I can resolve by changing to record each side seperate but maybe an easy fix to ignore the misssing  side like it used to.
N.B. I did try and delete the missing side 2 to see if that would allow me to save  but it deleted the complete recording

Regards
Ken

Should do.  That's the intention anyway, suggest blind listening test.  Any clips detected are shown in the corrections list, so you can quickly and easily see if the scan actually did anything (and if it didn't but you still see flat tops then please talk to us).

Thanks Steve, for pointing me in the right direction. I've used the Patch methods before with varying results so this will be interesting when I come across a more extended scratch. I'm also impressed that you cleaned 10 albums in a day! After doing the overall scan how do you find the damages that need extra attention? I usually listen with headphones, but ten albums takes a very long time...

Also when looking for the Multiclick I noticed the clip scan. Paul, will this also help with compressed music? Sometimes I rip Blu-ray audio and import it into VinylStudio to do the track breaks. I've discovered that some recordings seems to put a very hard amplitude limit on the music, similar to clipping.

Yeah, it used to be done that way, but as the number of custom statuses (stati?) has been increased it was getting a bit unwieldy.  Anyway, muscle memory is a wonderful thing...

Well, kinda :) I had a run of clicking Track Saved instead of Tracks Split and thought that having an ordering like this might be helpful less painful for me:

Newly Added
Recorded
Tracks Split
Cleaned
Tracks Saved
Disc Burned

But I can live with it as it is...

Yes, it's a sequence of adjacent click repairs stitched together, basically.  We were surprised at how well it works.

Prefer not to - different people do different things.  As it is, they are in alphabetical order which makes it easy to find what you want.

I suppose we *could* let you drag them around, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

Could you order the status values in the dialog into the order they'd normally be for someone's workflow?

I do like the changes otherwise, they come into that category of thing you didn't know you needed then wonder how you managed without...

You can find it on the 'Patch' dialog on the cleanup tab.

Generally, I use low level automatic click removal (level 2) and then manually fix any remaining clicks on quieter sections of the recording. It works well, but I always struggled with those schripp,  shwoosh type noises and was applying (sometimes) 100+ very short manual repairs to remove them. Multi-click appears to be doing something like this but in a much more sophisticated fashion and with fine control over the level of effect.

I did the cleaning of around 10 albums yesterday and only needed to use multi-click on two albums, but it got rid of irritating, short, repeated, background noise that would have been impossible to remove otherwise.

You have to experiment, some noises can be dealt with through manual repair, sometimes other Patch algorithms work well, but I'm going to be making a lot of use of multi-click...

For me at least it's worth the price all on its own.

Hi, I'm excited about VinylStudio moving forward with new features and improved performance. I would love to know more about the Multiclick feature but cannot find much info. What is its main purpose and when should it be applied?
