Adobe Audition help. wav file is distorted.

Discussion in 'Recording' started by ambientnewworld, Sep 10, 2008.

  1. Hi. I was mixing some files in Adobe Audition 3 as 1 long wav file. I finished the mix and it sounds awful. It sounded good when I first mixed it, but now it sounds as if it is distorted. I think I saved it as the wrong file. Microsoft ADPCM Wav file. What can I do to fix the mix to make it sound good? I am screwed. Do I have to start the mix all over again?

    I would appreciate if someone could help me. Even fix the file for me.
    thanks!

    You should save as Windows PCM for uncompressed goodness.

    Correct if wrong general public.

    It's actually 'Pedantic Codemonkey' :p
    <Hijack>?

    OK. It's very improbable that your file can be fixed, by anyone, including us Hacks, or them pros over there.
    However, you *should* have backups of everything which you can revert to. No? Well, you need to start again.
    Unlucky - and next time save to PCM.
    Once you're finished polishing it, you can cram it into a mp3 and let your friends miss out on >10KHz.

    (I know, the cutoff is 16KHz, but it rolls off the high end. Plus, iPod earphones don't go that high, do they?)
     
  7. thanks guys! Is there a way next time this doesn't happen again? I will save all my files as wav PCM.
     
  8. Which files should I save my music as?

    ACM Waveform (.wav)
    Windows PCM (.wav, .bwf)
    or
    PCM Raw Data (.pcm, .raw)

    Windoze PCM .wav, he says again.
     
  10. Another question. Why are there different wav formats?

    To make life hard.
     
  12. LOL

    no, but serious.

    Seriously: To make life hard.
    No reason other than that. Just save as uncompressed X-bit PCM where X is 16 or 24 if you recorded in that.

    Dammit it was called Microsoft PCM last time I looked.
     
  14. Thanks guys, I figured it out. The format is called Windows PCM (.wav) in Adobe Audition 3.0

    Next time I will know.

    Kristal just has "WAV", or I might've known what it was *actually* called.

    Because they're proprietary. It's akin to having different clocks between devices. It can become quite interesting if you do a lot of cross-platform collaberation via the net.
