(back) Subject: NYC recital this Thu. From: "Jonathan B. Hall" <jonahall@indiana.edu> Date: Tue, 28 Aug 2001 08:36:41 -0500 (EST)     Hello, sports fans!   This is the last of the summer recitals at the Church of the Epiphany (at the very least, you won't be getting much mail from me for a while!)   This Thursday from 12:15 to 12:45 I shall play   Prelude and fugue in a minor Bach Concerto for trumpet Torelli (with Cole James Uhrig, piccolo trumpet) Chorale in a minor Franck   This represents a change from the printed program, for those of you who have the series booklet. I was to have played the Bach a minor last week, but time simply ran out--we had a guest artist, Kyle Cheseborough, a noted sopranist, who sang Mendelssohn's "Hear Ye, Israel" FABULOUSLY...but with Vacation bible school champing at the bit, we could not run overtime even a minute. Hence, this week, I shall play the a minor in lieu of the b minor which had been scheduled.   Cole James Uhrig, trumpeter, is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and alumnus of the famous "President's Own" Marine Corps band.   Please come...bring your lunch...and one or two well-behaved dogs have been attending, too! We are at East 74th Street on York Avenue on the Upper East Side. Call 212-737-2720 x 24 for more information.   Thanks to listmember Robert Colasacco for page turning!     Take care--   Jonathan Hall wrtiting from Bloomington, Indiana    
(back) Subject: DAT to CD From: "Blaine Ricketts" <blaineri@home.com> Date: Tue, 28 Aug 2001 09:39:46 -0700       I noticed Bob's Sunday post on pipechat about making CDs from DAT. Doing this work is time consuming and I have learned using the school of hard knocks.   I record my DAT tapes at the 44.1 frequency used by CDs. My Dat machine has a digital outputs well as analog. I use the digital output to the digital input on my Montego II sound card for the transfer in real time. I don't think there is a faster way to get the information from DAT to the computer.   The only problem I have with the transfer is having enough digital gain. There is a friend who sends me DAT tapes of his choir anthems to collect and archive on CDs. Sometimes the gain, which he can't monitor and direct the choir at the same time, is a bit low. Frequently there is noise from the live building and traffic outside. In this case, it is easier for me to use the analog transfer through a spare preamp to boost the gain.   I'm not sure I can tell the difference between a digital transfer and an analog transfer! The digital is probably better for a commercial CD but to keep up the quality all the way would require the purchase of a more expensive sound card for my computer in the $500.00 range.   The Montego II sound card I use is probably about the same quality as the Sound Blaster Live card but it gets me a mixer that is easier to use and doesn't look like something designed to entertain a teenager! At the time of purchase, about two years ago, it seem to have more features rolled into one program than others on the market. I use the analog or digital line inputs, the internal CD ROM input and line out digital or analog. On the Montego II software, all of these and more are on individual sliders and can be configured to have only the ones you need visible.   I'm still looking for good mixing software that will work with a sound blaster live card.   The WAV files at 44.1 sample rate take up about 10 Meg per minute of space. To edit these files and make wave files for the individual selections requires a computer with plenty of room and speed. I recently assembled a computer using an Athlon 1.33MHz processor, ASUS motherboard with 256Meg of DDR memory and an ATA-100 hard drive controller. Most new hard drives these days are in the 30-40 Gig range with 7200RPM spindle speed. I can record the Grace Cathedral service on line (1-1/2 hours) and save the 1.5 Gig file in about three minutes. On my older Pentium II machine at 333 MHz, it required about 35 minutes to save the file depending on which Wave file editor I use. The Montego II program was a bit slow so now I use it for a mixer to feed Wave Lab Lite. Wave Lab Lite came with a noise reduction program called Clean and is marketed by Steinberg. I had a lot of trouble getting the Clean to work with my CD burner. It did not like the two HP burners I tried but has worked with other burners tried later. The Steinberg products are more professionally oriented as to types of sound cards and CD burners it will work with. I think Cool Edit or Cool Edit Pro (for all the noise reduction capabilities) are the most popular with people I know for editing WAV files. It is nice to get rid of as many coughs, book drops, occasional bad sermons and other noises as possible.   To actually burn a CD I use either Nero or Adaptec's Roxio Easy CD Creator. The last two CD burners I purchased came with the Nero software so that is what I'm using now. The control panel on the latest Easy CD Creator looks more like Star Wars entertainment than something serious. You can drag and click the wave file selections you want to make the CD. Another thing I almost forgot, since most motherboards have two EIDE busses, I use one for the hard drive and one for the CD/RW drive. I use no other drives on the machine. With an 8X 8X 32X CD/RW, I can copy a CD in about nine minutes. With a 24X burner , its about a 3.5 minute burn. I also use the CDs for easy back up of data files. I've never used a re writable CD, since CDs are so cheap.   I hope this helps and that maybe someone else has some experiences they can add to the story.   Blaine Ricketts

At anyrate with a specialized computer program, mistakes can be cleaned up, right notes played, before a master tape is made for production runs. They use these a lot in delayed non live radio programs for perfect presentations. Engineers use DAT's for this purpose. I've done some of this work for St. Joseph Radio.   Ron Severin
