When it doesn't fit anywhere else

iTunes question

Postby pinkfloyd188 » Sat Nov 18, 2006 9:02 pm

i've got a ton of old dead cd's from my parents, though many are scratched to hell. i managed to find one beautiful set from copps coliseum in the 90's... and the picasso moon on the first set is amazing. well that's what ive been told, since its the only track that i cannot listen to. it skips like none other at the 54 second mark and doesn't clean up until a minute before the end.

now for my question... is there any way to kind of "clean up" a track ive imported to iTunes? make it skip less? any advice or programs i could use, ANYTHING would be greatly appreciated.

You could rip the file down to something that an editor like Cool Edit could recognize and then you could go through the painstaking effort of deleting skips.

Or....

You could find someone, either here or at rec.music.gdead, or something like that who has a clean copy and work something out with them.......

That's what I would do.

awesome, i might try out the Cool Edit thing first, since the sound quality is so good on the cd's ive got.

thanks for the info

It is something that just takes practice. Remember, I used the term 'painstaking".

You have to learn how to read a wave form and identify where specific sections are. You can zoom in to help. Then, it is simply a matter of highlighting the unwanted section and deleting it.
