How do I change a 32 Bit to a 16 Bit?

I have recorded loads of work onto this dictator and it is in a 32 bit format - (so I am informed when clicking on the properties of it).I am using it with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice to text software and to test my voice, it needs it in a 16 bit format.... PLEASE HELP! ???

    Right... the dragon software is meant to be great, just want to work out how to use it!

  • Ben Jacobs Jul 18, 2008

    I have still not been told how to sort it? Only a link to an instruction manual.
    Cheers, Ben

  • Ben Jacobs Jul 18, 2008

    It still needs to be a .wav document..... Cheers

  • Ben Jacobs Jul 18, 2008

    What is this supposed to tell me?
    This came with the product.
    Cheers, ben


  • Ben Jacobs Jul 18, 2008

    Any other ideas... It must be simpler. Someone must haver used this software with this hardware before... No?

  • Ben Jacobs Jul 18, 2008

    These are too complicated, I have downloaded all of the software you have stated and am not getting anywhere with it. I just need to convert the 32BIT .wav file of my audio piece into a 16BIT .wav file so that I can load it into the dragon software which will convert it into a text document.
    Cheers, Ben

Hi,


Use an MP3/WAV (Audio) Mixer/Converter program like Acoustica or checkout this page. Open your .wav file (32 bit). Click on File, Save as, Wav file, type in new name, Save button, next window will be asking you properties of new to be save file (sample rate and how many bits). This will give you the option to save in

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I think Audacity would be the way to go. Just download it and load up your file. Then do an export and chose the format you need. Get it here: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and check this out: http://audacityteam.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5135 and http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=Bit_Depth.

Not only does the wav have to be 16 bit, it has to be PCM, 11.025
or 22.050 kHz, 16 Bit, Mono. I think it would be easiest just to play the audio from your sound recorder right into the microphone of your computer, since the Dragon software is especially made for listening on the microphone, Or hook up the audio out from the sound recorder to the Line-In jack of your computer using a male to male phono cable.

    Plan B: Go get your pair of ruby red heels, click them together, and say "I wish this was 16 bit PCM 22khz audio format" three times. =)

    If there were only a few files I would use Audacity, because I already have it installed on my PC.

    In Audacity, look in Edit > Preferences > Quality
    It says 'Uncompressed Export Format', make sure it's set at WAV(Microsoft 16 Bit PCM).
    Also make sure that 'Project rate' (in bottom left hand corner of screen) is set to 44100.

    Then I would import each WAV file and straightaway export it as WAV. They will be exported as 16 Bit.

    But if there are a large number of files maybe someone will suggest something less labour-intensive

    Here you go:
    Download the audio files into computer.
    Make a backup copy of files , just in case.
    Install this audio converter software, and use it to convert from 32 to 16 bits .
    Ensure you set conversion from 32bit to 16 bit in converter software settings


  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 18, 2008

    There is more audio converting software available. The one provided is free, if it does not work there are more free software package, or pay-for versions starting from under $20.
    Let me know if you have troubles with the software above. It should be ok.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 18, 2008

    Link to manual? that was a link to a download. : Download LS Encoder
    download the software , the software converts files, including WAVs from 16 bits to 32 bits, is not what you need?
    Just install encoder.
    copy files into PC
    encode files
    load files back.



  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 18, 2008

    This is easier to use download this.leave the one above:

    Download wavelab lite free software - Downloads Free - wavelab ...

    If you cannot use the above click on download a different software
    No matter what software you use , you need a audio file converter.
    Here you can download a good software trial.
    Unfortunately many of this software suites are not easy to use, you will have to play with them.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 18, 2008

    You dont use the software on the olimpus, you download file , convert them using a computer, then upload them on the Olympus.
    There is no conversion software working directly on the Olympus.
    .Download free Wavelab 5.0 I remember it was quite easy to use. The other ones above are more difficult.


    1. Install wavelab

    2. Download audio files in PC

    3. Load audio files in wavelab

    4. Save file from wavelab setting format to 16 bit in file properties.

    5. Load back up to Olympus.

    Not too complicate, other programs above are more difficult.First one posted save in mp3 no good.

    Well, what you do need to do:"just need to convert the 32BIT .wav file of my audio piece into a 16BIT .wav file" requires one of those software.
    But if you know better than my why ask.
    If you want use wavelab : Wavelab 5.0 to do the conversion , it is the easiest to use .
    If you re record with a microphone and a jack the quality will be bad.
    Do as you like.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 19, 2008

    I can see you are still in trouble. If you had been able to use any of the software above I found a much easier one.
    This is only converter, no additional features.
    It is converter only.

    Here is main window:
    At start click option, then click Wav, then set to 16 bits like in pictures:


    Then you load files and convert:





    All you have to do is (1) Load files
    (2) file appears in list
    (3) set output to Wav
    (4) press start, files are saved automatically.
    Important set option button to wav 16 bit output at start.
    Cannot find anything simpler than this, it is demo version will last 30 days or so.
    You can buy full version for $24 here.

    For the free trial do the following

    Install from here download From Local1
    Or from here
    download From Local2

SOURCE: 32 bit into a 16 bit recording???

Try NCH Software's Switch freeware program. You can tell it to convert from one bit format to another even with WAV files (it will call them PCM, but Dragon recognizes them as WAV files). It is also the best batch WAV to MP3 converter I have found. I always download from the company's own site as other sites can attach viruses.

Dustin, just go to song in the menu , click the arrow to song load, create etc. cursor to song create and it will give you the option of 16 or 24 bits just turn the cursor wheel then just cursor down with the button and select 44.1 or 48 kHz . Then cursor up to song load and push the right arrow and it will load your song with the settings you have selected. Very good recorder once you learn your way around on it. Joe

You can try running the 16 bit app in compatibility mode. Right click on the app's exe, click on properties, and select compatibility, then tick the box labeled "run in compatibility mode", then select Windows 98 from the now available drop down box.
