Technical Support / Re: Adding New Tracks to Existing Album

What you can do is
  • Record the missing track(s) as a new album side (let's call it side 3)
  • Drag the album sides into the correct order in the olist of files in the Record or Split Tracks window.
Does that help?
Technical Support / Adding New Tracks to Existing Album
« Last post by dweinberg on June 29, 2019, 01:26:26 pm »
From time to time (like this morning), I find that I have ended recording an album side too early and the music, therefore, stops prematurely on the recorded side. I know I can edit out that incomplete track from the album. What I am seeking to do is to re-record just the incomplete track and splice it into the album? My current practice has been to delete the entire side and re-record it again.

It's probably some kind of scuff, and therefore immune to (physical) cleaning.

The best you can do is to use ')' and then repair the section manually, either as you are doing now or perhaps by using Patch.  Sorry I don't have better news for you.
General Discussion / Getting rid of a repeating 'crick' noise

The first track has this noise on one channel every revolution for about 5-8 minutes (so 150+ of them), each cricks section lasts around 0.25s. It's immune to automatic click removal at anything less than destructive levels, so I've been selecting the bit with the cricks and re-running click removal on the selection at Max, 6 or even turbo with little or no percussion protection.

It does a good job. But. It's tedious and slow, even using ) to go to the next revolution. Is there an alternative method or some way to automate it?

FWIW I've cleaned the LP *twice* on a Moth RCM, so, short of splashing out on an ultrasonic cleaner, whatever gunge is on the LP is there to stay.

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...

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???
