    Can anyone help me???

    I have recorded 10-15 songs in a Audio cassette, so that I can upload them at my website

    But the problem arising are -

    1. There's a mild 'zzzzzzz' in back ground which increases on increasing the volume

    2. The files which when recorded in PC through Creative WaveSTUDIO, are too large! to upload on a website

    Can anyone HELP me in knowing the right procedure for Recording &
    secondly, a good software that minimises space
    & a method to upload to the PC

    Thank you

    If you record from an audio casette .... the quality wont be good and that zzzz sound ill be there alwayz...... but yeah you can minimize that using a good wire that connects the casette player and the line in port in PC..... and check if the wire is well connected with the jack ... chck for overlapping of wires when its connected to the jack....... and try experimenting wid the recording volume control... dont put it at the max.... you'll get that hiss sound.....

    Check if the file you've recorded are in wav format .... that may be the reason they are too big... just convert them to mp3 .....

    u need to follow the following steps:

    1. digitize the music (which I think you have done already) - i.e. convert the audio from the analog (cassette) to digital (computer) - usually this format will be wave (*.wav)

    2. once u have the wave file - u will realize the noise / hiss (the "zzzzzz" that you talk about) - so u need to get rid of it.
    Use a DAW (digitaal audio workstation) - u can remove hiss, noise, and other iriitating things like volume discrepancies (u can compress the sound etc)

    3. Usually the DAWs allow u to save in mp3/ogg/... yada yada ... formats which will compress your files to more manageable proportions

    Some of the best DAWs are (which I have used and they will cut the noise as well as allow u to save in mp3 format) are: Sony Soundforge, Adobe Audition.
    Unfortunately none of them are freewares.

    There is one Audacity. However, I am not aware if it has the noize reduction utility. It is a freeware. Check it out. works for all the software I mentioned.

    get audiograbber, it has a line in sampler.
    record the tracks, which saves them as .wav files.
    load a sound editing program like sound forge and get the noise eliminated.
    convert using mp3 or ogg converter like dbPowerAmp

    The Noise Reduction in Sound Forge is quite good.. You should give it a try..

    What if I don't have a website

    What if I don't have a website but have songs recorded? Where can I put them up for free so that other people can listen?
