I don't think there's much to be gained here.  You're not really supposed to be able to see individual click repairs when zoomed out - instead, the preponderance of grey shows the *density* if click repairs in any particular region.

A missed click is a missed click.  If VinylStudio did not detect it then there's nothing to display.  Try Spectral View.

So there is. Thanks.

But I have a problem. I'm getting an assertion error when I try any operation off the Move Menu.

Ran VS and successfully move some albums to another collection.
Created a new collection
Reopened the old collection that I'd move albums from
Selected some more albums to move
Clicked on the More button and selected "Move or copy..."
Nothing happens
Clicked on the More button and selected "Move or copy..."
There's a short pause then the error dialog (attached) appears.

I've tried selecting any number of albums from 1 to 20 and always have the problem.

Tried rebooting the PC still broken.

LMK if there are other tests you'd like me to do, or to send you files...

Hi,

This is available through the UI - in the Batch window under the More button.  You do, however, need VinylStudio Pro.

I've decided to reorganise the way I do collections to make backing up less time consuming. I have a large single collection > 100 albums and I'd like to split it into smaller collections, moving albums from the larger to the smaller new collections.

I didn't see any way of doing this through the UI, took a look at the collection file, found it was just text so tried copying the album text into another collection file and then copying the side .flac files.

All appeared to work OK though of course the waveforms had to be rebuilt when the copied album was opened.

I don't see any problems with it, even if it's a bit of a chore, but are there gotchas in doing this? Did I just miss something in the UI that I could use to make the job easier?

I'd considered copying+renaming the big collection and then deleting the 'unwanted' albums from the copy. Rinse and repeat until I'd broken up the collection. But that seemed at least as time consuming as editing by hand...

Your thoughts???

Technical Support / Re: Recording Levels from Behringer UMC404HD

Hi,

The Behringer UMC404HD A to D converter seems to output at levels lower than people expect. I see this stated may places on the Web. From a practical standpoint, it does not seem to matter much. I did a little experimenting and (case 1) beating red clip warnings on the Behringer recorded at 95 level in VS did not sound noticeably different than (case 2) no red clip warnings recorded at 91 level in VS.

The recorded waveform display looked much more proper in Case 2, but by the time I made MP3s of both and adjusted playback volume to the same level, I could not hear any difference.

Hi,

Commercial CDs are often compressed, which makes them sound louder.  We have resisted putting compression into VinylStudio because most vinyl enthusiasts prefer not to use it.

Thanks for your help. I run Mac OS X (Mojave).

I am still having some trouble getting levels right. I set the Behringer so it does not clip. I record the album. I leave the Split Tracks tab. I go to the Cleanup Audio Tab. I find the "Set Filter Settings" icon. I get to the equalizer. I go to Normalize. I set it to 0db. I normalize. I go back to Split Tracks. I Save Tracks.

I listen to mp3s on Swinson. The mp3s VinylStudio create are still quieter than my mp3s from CDs I ripped in iTunes.

Is there any way to improve my workflow and get my levels more comparable?

Hi,

The signal level reported by VinylStudio should be accurate.  It samples every 100-ms and reports the peak level measured during the sample period.

If you are running on Windows, make sure you click the 'Set digital gain to 1' button in VinylStudio's Check Level dialog.  Reported values will not be correct until you do so.

Technical Support / Recording Levels from Behringer UMC404HD
« Last post by Terne on June 06, 2019, 08:14:18 am »
Hello,

I am a new VinylStudio user and a new Behringer UMC404HD user on OS X Mojave.

I hope I understand recording levels correctly. The signal from the UMC404HD shows on VS's recording meter as quite low, showing about level 15 to 20 peaks on its scale. On its meter, something seems to cap the display at 50.

I turned up the input levels on the UMC404HD so its clipping indicators were on more than I liked. I could hear the clipping in the playback.

I understand VS's meter display may be updated slowly to save processing and it probably just reports what the UMC404HD tells it.

It seems like I should not worry about the low recording level display and there is nothing I can do about it anyway. What comes out of the UMC404HD has fixed gain and if I need to increase levels before making mp3 files I should do that in Audacity or other editing software, and just make sure nothing clips the signal. In short, not be too concerned about the signals displaying low at record time?

Do I have this right?
