    I have been trying to record a sample from a video that I am playing through a media program on windows. I have tried using the manual and following the steps but I think it's intended for a different type of recording, seeing as it seems to lock any media players that will try to output sound. Before I had this soundcard I used to go to the windows sound properties and change it from playback to recording.

    How do I apply similiar settings using the Delta audio sound panel?

    I am using an Audiophile 24/96, Windows XP and the latest drivers.

    I've just sent this to M-audio and they told me to ring their hotline. errr yeah thanks a lot, great advice.

    Any ideas?

    I have a 24/96, but I've never tried doing this. What strikes me is this, though:

    It's a digital file, meaning that the digital information is there. Are there not other programs that will convert the soundfile to something more usable, like WAV or AIFF, from which you can extract the key part?

    I know of programs that will extract the audio soundtrack from a DVD, for example, so surely there's something that will pull the soundtrack from an MP4 or whatnot? I think that'll give you more reliable results.

    That said, what happens if you go into the Delta control panel and play with the "patchbay/router"? Like I said, I haven't done it, but it seems to me that you should be able to rout the HW OUT 1/2 back to the HW IN 1/2 which will be the "internal" equivalent of plugging a patch cable into the in/out and connecting them physically. The "internal" equivalent of course being preferable for all the obvious reasons.

    If you are taking or attempting to take a sample from a video, it is already probably 16-bit 48kHz. There is no advantage to trying to transcoding to 24/96 what's the point? Work with it in its native domain. It can be done. Don't waste your time with what you're trying to do as there is no advantage. Chances are it is already riddled with a nasty spike and 15,750 hertz which is horizontal sync. Few people realize this.

    Brutally practical

    GregP - Cheers for the suggestions - I did try that but I don't think the supposed avi file was actually a true avi. I've tried playing with the patchbay/router, to no avail. Do you have any idea which settings you would most likely try and use?

    RemyRAD - I have no idea what you're on about. I'm just trying to rip a sample which is about five seconds long. It doesn't need to be perfect.

    hi, there...

    if you just need to 'rip' audio out of whatever movie format, like avi, divx or m-peg, then you might want to try hyperengine-AV by arboretum... it's mac OS only though... but it's for FREE, maybee you have a mate with a mac where you can do that... otherwise check the prog out on there web and look if something similar for the PC excist's... i would guess it does!!! i mean for free...

    sorry that is all i can do, i am militant against PCs so not much of a help here :D

    Well, this says a lot, doesn't it?

    So, you won't take the time to call their hotline/help desk, and then you've been given - for FREE - excellent advice from a professional who took the time to answer your question. (Ah, and you're ripping a sample of someone else's audio for your own use, too!)

    Too bad you dismiss some great advice that might have taught you something. Your initial post read like it was important (ie: a project that required some expertise) and worth advice from a professional.

    Well, if you're just trying to remove some audio from a video clip, I misinterpreted your use of the" 24/96" comment. Windows media player will allow you to save clips. Adobe Premiere will allow you to export audio, clips and entire productions, from the timeline or from the clip that you highlight. Sony Vegas, will also allow you to " render as" and then select your parameters of what you want.

    The other computer way to do it, is to bring up your Microsoft audio mixer in playback mode. Then double-click the Microsoft mixer icon again and it will bring up a second copy of the playback mixer. Then on the second playback mixer use the properties drop-down menu and select record. This will bring up the recording mixer. From there you will see 2 mixers on your desktop (they will both land on top of each other so you will need to move one out-of-the-way), one for playback and one for record. Now in the record mixer select wave, or stereo mix, or what you hear. Now get your recording software running and record the audio of the clip back into the computer. Much of this is actually done in the Digital domain and shouldn't degrade your sound much.

    I hope that helps you since half of your question was indecipherable in its specifications that included unnecessary information.

    Bearing this in mind I think that you should wind your neck in and pipe down JoeH, you jumped up little ^#$%. No I will not ring their hotline because I have no idea how much that will cost and quite frankly I'd rather not seeing as it should have been dealt with in response to my email request.

    It's all good getting free excellent advice from a professional but slightly pointless if it's completely irrelevant to what you asked. Also, whatever gives you the idea that I was ripping copyright material?

    Remy - thanks for the advice but I can no longer select record as my delta audio drivers have overwritten the microsoft ones.

    I did manage to rip it in the end, using a wav output plugin for winamp incase anyone's interested.

    Woweee! So we've skipped dialog and moved straight into rage and expletives already, eh? Alrighty then! :cool:

    Hey, what do "I" know...take any video clip you want, yours or anyone else's. It's all good, right? Who's gonna know, anyway, right?

    I'm really sorry; I had NO IDEA you're too cheap, impatient or without the resources to simply call the help line for the manufacturer of your card. It's always much easier to pester people here with such basic whining, and then resort to insults when you don't get the spoon-fed answer you want. (reminds me of the guys panhandling for spare change on the corner, who get mad when somoene gives 'em food or blankets instead....)

    Well, maybe someday when your parents let you get your own phone, you'll find out how it works: After emailing them, you call the number, you get in touch with a product rep, and you explain the problem to them (hopefully without the obscenities - they don't respond well to name-calling and stuff like that). Betcha the price of the call that they would have helped you with YOUR little problem in 2 minutes flat; most likely before you had time to even begin frothing at the mouth.

    Honestly, I'm still laughing my butt off here....I"ve been called a LOT of things before, but NEVER that!

    Thanks for that VERY special peek into your thought process, tranced. You made my day, kid, you really did! :twisted:
