I was asked to transfer a 1965 performance of the Bach b-minor mass to CD this past weekend. The recording consists of two reel to reel tapes.
I am using the Steinberg Cl1 usb interface to get the signal from the tape machine to the computer.
I have done this countless times in WL7, and more than several times in WL8 without problems.
This weekend, I ran into problems with a glitch in the transferred audio. It sounds similar to the sort of artifact that occurs on faulty CD’s where there will be random pops, clicks, etc.
If it helps, I am running WL8 on an Asus G74S laptop, plenty of storage, 16 GB RAM, 64 bit Windows 7 Pro service pack 1. The Asus has a Core i7 quad core processor.
I chose to record both reels into one file, probably 2 or so hours of material recorded at standard 44/16 cd settings.
Since I was limited for time, I opened my copy of VegasPro 12 and re-digitized everything there without a problem, then opened the resulting file in WL8 Montage where I added markers and text, then burned the CD’s.
I’m guessing that length of the material would not be the problem, since WL supports Wave64 (and even earlier versions would complain about file size if I reached the limit), and my computer’s resources should be more than ample, so what is causing this problem? I’ve not experienced it ever before in any version of WL.
Thanks in advance for your help.
