    Something in your original answer triggered me to try a different program than Musicmatch to burn the mp3's to a CD, and everything works perfectly now. (I switched to Roxio) Thanks for your help on that one. Any luck with my other question about the video sound not working on Adobe Premiere Elements? Nobody seems to be able to figure that one out.

  • Pitsbug5 Aug 11, 2008

    Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 is a program that you can make slideshows, movies, or a combination of both, much like Windows Movie Maker, only more involved. When you add a movie clip that comes from a camera that has been d/l in the computer, the video part of the movie goes to the video line of the timeline (which is visible and works), and the audio part of the movie goes to an audio line, so it splits. The audio line works fine when I insert mp3's for background music for the part of the movie that's a slideshow. Also, when I play the video without the Adobe program, I can hear the audio part just fine. Here is my original post:
    I am trying to create a DVD using Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0. I'm combining pictures with videos that have the .mov file extension. When dragging the video to the timeline, the audio portion goes to the audio line ok, however there is no sound. The video portion plays fine. I tried adjusting the volume to no avail, and made sure the mute was disabled. It should be noted that my audio meters panel has no color to it, if that has anything to do with it. Please advise, and thank you in advance for your help.

When music is downloaded into the mp3 some of the songs play and most don't. I've checked the settings and everything is fine.


it could be because the file format of some of your songs are not supported.

a good rule of thumb is to stick to .mp3 format, and stay shy of the following:

.mp4
.aac
.wav
.wmv

Cannot burn cd from Musicmatch from Dell Optiplex GX260. Error.


Hello,

My name is ArmyMason, I am here to help you. So you have an issue burning music to CD's. What is the format of the music? MP3, WMA, or WAV? Is the music protected by copyright in which doesn't allow you to burn it to CD? Right click on the song and click properties you will be able to see if its copyright protected there. Also some burning software only works with newer CD drives. I had an issue once burning a DVD with this software I bought because the DVD player wasnt supported. Once I upgraded the DVD Burner I was able to burn DVD's. Those are the only things that could be stopping you from burning music.

Hope that helps,
ArmyMason

I have used Musicmatch Jukebox for years to download and burn mp3s to a CD. I have always used CD-R CDs. All of a sudden when I go to play the CDs, they aren't compatible with the same players I've...


MUSICMATCH PROBABLY CONVERTED YOUR FILES TO A NEWER FORMAT LIKEACC OR MP4 , THE PLAYERS SOFTWARE IS NOT UPDATED ENOUGH TO PLAY THESE NEW FORMATS , CHECK YOUR MUSIC FORMATS IN AN EXPLORER WINDOW AND IT WILL TELL U WHAT FORMAT THE SONG IS. WE KNOW YOUR PLAYER WILL PLAY A WAV FORMAT, BURN A STANDARD WAV. FORMAT DISC ON THE SAME TYPE OF DISK AND IF IT PLAYS ITS THE ADVANCE FORMATS THATS YOUR PROBLEM.

CD Distortion After Bruning


There are various things that can be done here. You'll need to make sure somethings first before we conclude there might be a defective with your burner:

- Music quality: if you burn audio you should always looks for high quality files, In case of MP3: search files with at least 192 kbp/s of bitrate. If there are files with higher bitrate, they are better. Here is a overview of speeds and there quality:

96 kbp/s: FM Quality
128 kbp/s: Low CD Quality
160 kbp/s: Higher CD Quality
192 kbp/s: High CD Quality
220 kbp/s: Better Quality
320 Kbp/s: Studio Quality.

Note that files with a higher bitrate use up more space on your harddisk. For example: 320 kbp/s is usually between 8 and 12 MB's. (Depending on song length).

- Overburn: Do not overburn CD's. If it says it's almost full. Don't force a overburn.

- Disc Media: Make sure your disc are of decent quality. The less known formats/cheap ones are usually not that good.

- Your PC: While burning, don't do too much with the PC. It's best to let it burn and do nothing.

- Speeds: always use only speeds the discs are capable of and preferably less then indicated, For example: disc says 52x, use something link 32x

I hope this helps out. Let me know if these hints worked.
You can always update your burner's firmware but you'll need to tell me something more about it. Like: what model is it, what brand etc.

Have you also checked whether the lens on your CD player is OK?

Professional voice recording on PC


Hi Stalks!

The good news is that making high quality recordings of a voice is a lot easier than say, of a band. In fact you do not need anything fancy to do this, just a good quality headset and microphone and some software.

I am going to assume that you are aware that you can use the media program in windows to record in WAV format. If you did not know that, simply Google WAV and record and you will find many articles that detail how to do that with a stock windows system.

I am also going to assume that you have an MP3 program and know how to use it. If you do not, well, there are free and trial versions (such as Soundforge) online, and you should download a few and try them out to see which one you like best. Almost all of these allow you to convert WAV to MP3.

The question of the headset and mic is a thorny one... You basically have two options but before I detail them, let me explain why you should use a headset with mic as opposed to just a mic alone.

When you use just a mic, background noise and your voice often create minor feedback sounds on the recording. That does not happen every time but it happens often enough due to the cheap nature of most PC mics that it is not worth trying to correct. A good quality headset and mic combination offers you an input device engineered for just what you want to do!

You can go two ways here - either a USB Headset and mic or one that uses the 5mm plugs on your computer soundcard.

I have used both, and I find that the USB type often give the best results but also happen to be more expensive. The reason for that is because they are not just a headset and mic but also have a USB soundcard integrated into them, hence the extra cost.

The less expensive option is a standard headset and mic that use the audio in and out ports on your soundcard. Over the years I have used a number of these and I find that Sennheiser makes the best unit for the price range.

You can find reasonably priced Sennheiser models at www.newegg.com and at your local superstores (ie Best Buy or Staples).

I hope that this helps you.
