What do you do with the WAV file that's output by dbPowerAmp? Do you feed it into CSWViewer to convert it to CSW?
Can you also/instead feed the WAV file output by dbPowerAmp into a program that converts it to UEF? Which program? makeuef? What's the difference between makeuef and makeuefam? Does one output UEFhq as opposed to plain UEF?
Sorry for all the questions, but you are the tapemaster, you know!
yes, I get your drift, my notes where on about 10 loose bits of paper, so that info was just a quick 'get it down' before I loose them all
I now only use NCH Switch as dbPowerAmp seems to have went a bit wonky. I record in full CD /Stereo.WAV as then I can use either the Left or Right channel depending on which is better, I also have a 'Save As' Mix-6, which combines both channels to mono and reduces the volume, as just Mix0 gives +9db
WaveLab6 saving to .RAW is fine, but saving straight to .WAV the CSW proggy does not like them for some weird reason (not M$oft complient
) so have to use NCH Switch to convert the .RAW to .WAV and then CSW proggy likes.
So once I have 3 versions (left /right /mix-6), I then throw these Mono.WAV files into the CSW viewer proggy, and see which is best /works
makeuefam is the basic converter with no gaps between files stored and utter useless for weird blocks
makeuef needs a .CSW file so can cope with gaps /weird blocks /madness
