Editing cuss word from podcast?

Apple – Support – Discussions – Editing cuss word from podcast? ….  Karl_out_West has the answer.

that’s not necessary. there are two ways to delete anything from an audio file in GB.

One is in the standard Tracks display.. let the audio play up to the element to be deleted, and press the space bar. this will stop the playback and the ‘playhead’ right at that spot. Edit>split track. Press space to play, and at the end of the element to be deleted, press spacebar again to stop. Again do edit>split track.

You have split the audio into three regions: keep|delete|keep .. you need to click in the blank space BELOW the track to deselect the track, then click on the region-to-delete. Press the Delete key on the keyboard. This leaves a hole in your sound track.. click on the rightmost region and drag it to the left, across the space, right up against the leftmost ‘keep’ region.

SAVE YOUR WORK.. CMD-S.

There is another way to do it with the Edit Region icon, but you’ll have to use GB’s Help command for that one.

Mac 101: Import Windows Media Audio files into iTunes.  This sounds like a great 3rd party program to convert those pesky files.  I haven’t tried it but it sounds like it works for others.

Sounds like your audio midi settings are not being stored properly.Id try deleting com.apple.audio.AudioMIDISetup.plist and resettingaudio midi.As you know, iTunes only reads the audio midi settings when it startsup, so Id do that with itunes not running.

Apple – Support – Discussions – iTunes 10 restarts itself after I quit ….  Check to see if you have third party plug-ins and disable them. In this case Gimesometunes was the issue.

This sounds interesting. It would be worth trying out.  Another option is to get a QNAP.  If money is no object then the QNAP is a better choice.  Software is fine but is generally less reliable than a dedicated hardware.  In addition it can make a nice backup as well.

I have never really got the mp3 craze – there are so many ways in which they just don’t seem that immediate and easy. I can’t play mp3s in my car, for example, unless I change my car / get a new stereo / get an FM transmitter,  and also spend time loading whatever mp3s I want onto whatever media I have. I can’t just grab a couple of CDs off the shelf as I head for the door. MP3s can’t be lent to a friend so easily – even technophobes can generall … Read More

NVM guys I found The Solution, Well At Least this worked for me, ok lets go through the steps i made.

BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE STEPS BELOW, YOU MUST HAVE ITUNES CLOSED!, AND UNPLUG YOUR IPAD!!!!

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOUR IPAD IS FULLY CHARGED TO DO THESE STEPS AND BE ABLE TO WORK, IF YOU ARE ALREADY STUCK IN THIS AND HAVE A BLACK SCREEN AND YOU HAVE THE ERROR 1024, LEAVE YOUR IPAD PLUGGED IN TO YOUR COMPUTER, OR POWER SOURCE ABOUT 2 HOURS TO MAKE SURE ITS FULLY CHARGED, THEN DO THE STEPS BELOW. (EVEN THOUGH THE SCREEN IS BLACK THE IPAD IS STILL CHARGING)

First go to a new finder window.
Second click on your username tab.
Third go to the folder called “library” inside your username selection.
Fourth look for the folder called “itunes”, Go into that folder.
Fifth Go into the Folder Called “iPad Software Updates”.
Sixth Delete The ispw 3.2.2.

After doing those steps empty out your trashcan.

Now Open up itunes and plug in your ipad, re-download the update, and let it do its thing.

That Should Resolve your Problem

VLC Player v1.1 Well Worth The Experience (via New Live Free Or Die Hard … Encore)

If you have an older machine the upgrade might be even more worthwhile.

VLC Player v1.1 >> Well Worth The Experience I have been using VLC player for about two days now and it has been great. I had difficulties playing video at first, I could only hear the audio but I realized after installing I should have restarted my machine. So I did and I can see videos clearly now, even on my slow, outdated machine. It is more or les the same with the interface that is but you can see that they tweaked the UI a bit. Videos play easily and are pretty and clear and there is … Read More
