Help menu example sounds
« on: November 09, 2010, 06:12:44 pm »
The "cleanup Audio" help menu example (before and after) sounds icons are blank i.e. no sound when clicked.
I would like to hear the actual filters in action.

Do you mean in the VinylStudio help file itself, in the Percussion Protection, Brass Protection and Manual Click Repair topics?  These are the only sound samples in the help file and they are working for me.  What version of Windows do you have (or are you on the Mac)?  They do require that Windows Media Player is correctly installed on Windows.

There are, in any event, a number of sound samples on the website, so you might try your luck with those:

These are much better examples of what VinylStudio can do.

Thanks for the quick reply. I use XP SP3 with WMP 11.
The sound samples quoted on the website are just what I was after, but I still only get the following in the help file.


Original: (faint box with . inside)   
Dulled:       same


<table>
<tr>
    <script> sound_sample ('Original', 'sounds/pp_on'); </script>
</tr>
<tr>
    <script> sound_sample ('Dulled', 'sounds/pp_off'); </script>
</tr>
</table>


The above is the source code associated with the examples.

OK, thanks.  I have the same setup as you do and, as I say, it is working here so I'm not sure what's wrong.

You could try reinstalling Windows Media Player, that might sort things out:
