Gsnap Sound Forge

    I'm trying to learn Gsnap to correct some singing. How can I save the corrected audio track. I'm using Sony Sound forge. When I select Save, it saves the old track uncorrected.

    If GSnap doesn't have that functionality built in then just solo the corrected track, export it as a mono mixdown (I assume it's a mono vocal track) at the appropriate bit rate and sample depth as your project, and then import the resulting mixdown file into Soundforge in the correct location. Disable/mute the original track and Bob's your uncle.

    My only export option under "File" is File-Export to Net MD which just leads to an error message.

    Download Reaper and try again.

    I never heard of "Reaper". I used the built in Windows Sound Recorder set at the highest quality to record the track in real time. I still have problems in Gsnap. When I select "Configure" and change the key to G Major, It seems to default right back to A Major. Also, I'd like to import a prerecorded keyboard track with the correct melody and apply it to the vocal track so the vocal track follows the melody but I have no idea how.

    Reaper is a very respectable DAW that is a free trial and a $60 non commercial license. And GSnap works just fine on it.

    Windows Sound Recorder is not recommended for your purposes or for plugins. You can't make it into a DAW.

    Any idea where I can go to get my Gsnap questions answered. I've searched the web but came up empty.

    You didn't look very hard. The manufacturer is GVST and they have a forum at their site.

    http://www.gvst.co.uk/gsnap.htm

    And since I'm leading you along, here is the forum address for Sound Forge which is an Audio Editor but not much of a DAW.

    short video

    Between those two forums that are specific to your "DAW" and your plugin you have the best opportunity about cobbling them together.

    I tried the Sound Forge site but I don't have a registered copy of Sound Forge so I can't log in. I'm still waiting for the Gnap site to contact me to activate my registration. Would it be better to use Gsnap with Audacity?

    It would be better to throw away any unregistered software. Period.

    You are using a cracked copy then?

    I bought my copy of Soundforge. In other words, I am subsidising all those that choose to steal it instead... why would I want to give free technical support as well?

    No, I don't OWN a registered copy of Sound Forge. I was using my friend's copy on his laptop. He and I collaborate on music. I installed my free copy of Gsnap into his Sound Forge app. but I can't get it to do what I want. He's no help, as he barely understands Sound Forge itself.

    Then register your friend's copy on his laptop and use the recommended forums as indicated.

    There is much information and helpful people that reside on this forum, as well as those who make their living writing software.

    This is my nice request. Play nice, play fair and don't steal if you wish to receive help and get it from this forum. I can't think of a reason why your friends copy couldn't be registered. So enlighten me if I'm somehow off-base.
