I cannot open an MP3 file, get an access violation in "winmm.dll". What kind of an audio editor cannot open an MP3 file??

"...use the program to remove not vocals but music itself and keep vocals and, if I can, how?"

It can be done but the results may or may not be acceptable. Vocal range is about 300Hz-3000Hz; using a sharp (about 18dB/octave) low-pass filter at 3000Hz then a sharp high-pass filter at 300Hz on your file will eliminate everything but that range, but the signal will still contain any of the music within that range. If your vocals are a male voice you can probably lower the low-pass cutoff frequency, if a female you might raise the high-pass cutoff frequency; experiment to see what gives the best results.

Hi helpful,nice and good people
What a marvellous software.Beautiful skin, highly systematized interface and very fast and excellent results.
Can some good fellow tell me whether I can use the program to remove not vocals but music itself and keep vocals and, if I can, how?
Thanks.

Well, I decided to try installing today's v9.0.1 without uninstalling v9.5.1 from April 2009 (see previous comment).

First I manually created a System Restore point (on the chance that it might do me some good if it worked as hoped-for should I need it to undo undesirable changes).

Then I started the installer for today's offer (Setup.exe) and at the point where it asked approval for the folder name under "Program Files" (Windows XP) I simply added " v9.0.1" to the end to give it a name distinctly different from the older folder.

Both versions now launch OK and appear as "registered", thank you very much!

From appearances I can now see that today's v9.0.1 is the more recently developed of the two (it shows a lot of work was put into this); but still, why the backwards version numbering? Did someone stumble and forget to jump to v10.x.x or something along the way? Seems odd...

Anyway, thanks for your generous offer. Unfortunately, it is too late tonight for me to test things out and exercise the features or uncover any bugs, but if it works as well as the older one, it's a keeper!

Oh, I did confirm one "bug" pointed out by "David" (comment #8), and as he mentioned it's not in the application software itself. In the "Start Menu\Audio Editor Deluxe folder" there is a "More Tools" Internet Shortcut/link set up as:

www.www.audioeditor.biz

...which does not function. A simple right-click on that file, then choosing "Properties" allowed me to easily correct it by editing out the extra "www.".

A bell went off in my head and I thought "Wait, don't I already have this title? It sounds familiar...", and sure enough, it was previously offered on April 18, 2009, where it received a good approval rating:

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/audio-editor-deluxe/

So I was preparing to uninstall this with Revo Uninstaller when I noticed it was listed as "Audio Editor Deluxe v9.5.1".

No mere bell, but an alarm went off!

Wait, isn't today's offer v9.0.1? Would I be taking a step backwards by "updating"? Is this really a time-machine app?

I could find no revision history on their web site to offer any explanation for this apparent backwards jump in versions.

This is confusing to say the least. Most likely, today's offer is indeed 4 years further along in development, hopefully. Certainly if you do not already have it installed, grab it while you can -- it's pretty good.

But since I already have it from 2009 and have been pretty happy with how it works, I'm hesitant to mess with a good thing, so I think I'll not "upgrade".

Or maybe I will...

Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 vs. Audacity on basic cutting processing:

Just recorded an online talk. Didn't stop recording right when the talk ended. In audacity I would Select: cursor to end and hit delete. The cut is instantaneous.

In AED 9.0.1, I was able to very easily zoom in, place the cursor right after the talk, dragged to the end of the recording, and hit delete. Great...except that it took forever for AED to delete that 5 minute section. Tried it with a shorter section, same thing. Tried it with cutting rather than deleting, same thing.

Not sure why it would take so long. And...I found the saving to an mp3 file (64)just as long as sluggish ol' Audacity.

I have tried many time but all the attempts to download from Youtube videos within AudioEditorDeluxe Ver9-0-1 failed.
Not being able to download Youtube videos is a non-issue, since that is not the core skill of this software.

I am sure the Youtube download feature worked at the time when they created the AudioEditorDeluxe Ver9-0-1.
Just ignore that button.

This situation is not surprising.
Youtube frequently changes its coding to PREVENT downloads.
Youtube does this all the time.

Simply use any of the common Youtube downloaders that are regularly updated in synch with whenever Youtube changed its coding.
You will be able to download Youtube videos with those.

"...but be aware it has not been updated since January 2012."

For me that is a plus. I'm not one of those people who update vid drivers or sound drivers simply because there are ones with higher version numbers available - "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Same with any software (I use a ten year old version of Paint Shop Pro because every subsequent version has dropped features or performance). To be honest I'm not impressed by developers who cannot release a single piece of software without following it with a dozen "updates" in the next thirty days (ahem, Micro$oft, Java, Flash...); as a design engineer I feel if you must update something that often it wasn't well designed to start with.

Maybe you ran the setup from the downloaded zip file and got problem.

First you have to unzip the zip file into any folder of your choice.
Then run the setup from that uncompressed folder.
It will work.

Hi guys!

The good old days when audio software was expensive and limited have gone. Today there are several very good audio editing solutions, and some of the are freeware or even open source.

As a big fan of Cool Edit Pro, which latest number is 2.1 and which is no longer sold and now renamed to Adobe Audition, which is much to expensive for me, I must compare every alternative program with Cool Edit.

Beside Audacity and Wavosaur (both freeware) I can recommend you the free version of Acoustica: Acoustica Basic Edition 6.0
English
http://acondigital.com/products/acoustica-audio-editor/
German
http://acondigital.de/produkte/acoustica-audioeditor/

Acoustica Standard 5 is given away for free on some magazine CD´s sometimes.

I like it.

If you want try out the more expensive programs try out Adobe Audition or Soundforge, both are available as 30 days free fully functional demo versions. So is Acoustica Premium, bur much more affordable.

It is a good program, and better in my opinion than Audacity, which i've never been a fan of despite it being free. I always preferred cool edit pro - am I showing my age? Anyways, very intuitive, works well, could maybe do with a few more presets for the supplied effects, but a definate keeper. I do think it is overpriced though at $69

Hey this is really nice. Great software, very fast and snappy. I tried it out with some mp3's and wav's and works very well. However when I try and open a ogg I get "ACM Error". Does anyone know why and what that means? Doesn't matter too much If I can't open ogg and such like as I do most of my editing with wave files and convert them later with CDex.
I like the way the editor works, over all very smooth. Reminds a bit of Sound Editor Deluxe 6, which was given away last year I think, but this is much better. This has Normalize and Compressor, which are very useful for me as I work a lot with speech. I also like the Fade in and out on this, works very well.
Thanks Giveaway of the day for this one. Definitely a keeper.

I have tried many, but none can compare with Cool Edit, which I still use (despite it not exactly being made for Windows 7! But I only have the occasional issue with its ´lack´of compatibility). I did trial Adobe Audition but found it 'heavy' compared to CE and I am not a professional, just use it as a play tool. Mainly cleaning up tracks but also recording through the soundcard (nevertheless, thanks for the link #40 XP-Man). I do not really like Audacity either, though I use it on my Mac Air (can anyone suggest any viable alternatives for a Mac?). I've also got Sound Forge on my PC -came bundled with Sony Vegas- but it can't match CE. Anyone tried Goldwave, for example? Anyway, I am going to d/l this GAOTD and give it a whirl, but what a pity, Windows only.

Thank you GAOTD & AudioEditorDeluxe Inc. for today's offering, /And/ Thank you folks who took the time to offer your opinion(s) of todays GOTD. Most informative, interesting and appreciated. Good example of how this Comments forum should evolve.

Todays GOTD, Audio Editor Deluxe: Nice collection of effects, excellent help files, and a very attractive and polished UI [user interface]. Very impressive, very professional yet easy learning curve for those newcomers wishing to [jump in] modify their audio files. The developers included only options used by the average person, without dumping a lot of useless junk, in hopes of adding flair to their UI. [did you catch that, M$ Word developers?] The main screen is clean, easy and well organized.

Of the many Audio Editors I seem to have collected, this is by far, the most attractive and user friendly with excellent help files, I have run across. As far as a test drive, I ran a couple test files and found the results easy to negotiate, quick and responsive to accommodate my preferences. No overload or freeze ups, on typical sized Mp3's. I don't have any gigabyte sized music files, so I can't comment on their success.

Question for you folks - Does this "Aneesoft Audio Editor Deluxe", result with a Lossy file like the popular audio editor - "Audacity" does [?] , or a Lossless audio file like - "Mp3DirectCut" ? ... ***If the developer could jump in and identify, it would be most helpful.

For those posters who feel upgrading the YouTube feature, - Glarysoft for a [very] limited time, is giving away their $25., - "Aneesoft YouTube Converter v3.0" - for free, should you be interested. Free giveaway from Glarysoft - http://giveaway.glarysoft.com/aneesoftyoutubeconverter3.0%28rerun%29-547/###

In Re: Speech to text option. Another avenue for those who wish different, might look at -
"DSpeech" , is a TTS (Text To Speech) program with functionality of ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) integrated. Might be worth you wile to take a look see.
http://dimio.altervista.org/eng/

On my [preferred] machine [XPsp2], installation was smooth and uneventful, as is the typical for an XP OS. Didn't care nor tried [installing] on my 7 and 8 dust collectors.

Program loaded & registered fine to Windows 7, 32 bit. I tried it on an audio file with large gaps in the dialog and mic handling noise.

It was very easy to figure out how to select portions to cut and does an excellent job of it. It will take time to learn how to use the many other features of the program but it is a keeper.

Tnx to the developer and GOTD for this offering.

Installed and registred quickly on Win 7 Home. Synthesized carefully-typed text pretty well both as a new file and as inserted voice into PM3 music file (punctuation is critical!). I tried to open a 4 hour and 22 minute MP3 which had been recorded from YouTube with "Free Sound Recorder 9.6.1". Only got a blank file which didn't fit on the screen and had no option for sliding horizontally.

I opened the same file in Audacity. It was fully visible, played correctly, and I was able to edit as well as any 3 minute file. Shorter files sounded the same on play-back in both programs.

Audio Editor Deluxe might be worth keeping as a free program to insert title or artist into short music files but otherwise, it's pretty useless.

Registered, again with no problems.
A really nice interface and decent speed.

If you like loaded software that seems to work as stated, give this a try, you might like it.

Thumbs up at this time.

Main cons:
- The unnecessary Ridiculous Ribbon (not enough features to justify this kind of interface)
- Huge waste of screen estate (mostly because of the ribbon)
- Some usability issues (e.g. a dropdown menu for effects inside the Edit tab, not adapted to 1366x768 screens, as if PCs were good only to watch 16/9 movies)
- Really bad: Cannot open/save/export AAC, AC3, FLAC and even more limited output formats when saving selection
- Only one audio file loaded at a time (unable to mix different audios files)
- Use old versions of lame and DLLs from ffmpeg
- Interface not so good as it appears at first glance. Trying to imitate Microsoft but AudioEditorDeluxe Inc is not MS.
- Horizontal scrolling does NOT work. As a laptop user for a very long time, this is a big no-no.
- For me, some features don't do it. For instance, I extract audio from Youtube video using ffmpeg commands in a .bat file. This feature here has very limited and not customizable output. As for Youtube video downloading, it could select the best audio quality but it's not possible ---maybe not feasible at all.
- Bad DLLs management: a dozen .dll in windows/system32. Could be avoided by putting these exclusive (I doubt they're shared by any other program) libraries within the program folder.

This GOTD is not a serious contender for Audacity, portable or not. Not even comparing the ridiculous $70 against free software.

Adobe Audition is mentioned and I recalled that version 3 had been issued as freeware. As far as I am aware it is still available at the following link:-

It appears to consist of three files but is not for the fainthearted to download as it is approximately 4.5 GB.

Hi Everyone,
# 15 David: If you go into "Options" you can change the output setting to what you want for a default and every time you save a file it will use thous settings,, (o; It set by Default to "ASK YOU" for the output setting every time you go to save a file! Not a bad Idea in case you change your settings when you save different files? It would remind you that you need to set the output up? Otherwise just set them up and it will NOT Ask you!, Just use the setting you select. Hope that helps?

I downloaded and installed Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 on a Gigabyte MB Powered by AMD 6 core Black Edition CPU @ 3.4GHz running Windows 7 64Bit with 16GBs of RAM, With No Problems at all! Install was very fast and registration could not have been easier! Just remember to copy the registration numbers in before the end of the FREE Registration time, As it does NOT Ask you to do this! SO, Don't Forget! (o;
Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 is a Very Nice Audio Production Application with Lots of Options and works Very Fast and is, For the most part Very Easy to learn and use. I agree with #12 Adif, That it could have more Tracks, There are 2 tracks with stereo not 1, But the way it lets you blend and add sound, Or, Noise To the stereo tracks is very nice and to a point eliminates the need for say 8 tracks like in the old school recording studio recordings made with up to 24 tracks and maybe more! That's nice for an old studio guy like me but could get very confusing for a new user to editing audio or even someone with experience that just wants to do home, Or, Privet Audio creations, Even for You-Tube! I just think that today, They just are not needed in most cases, Unless you are doing "In Studio, Professional Work" It may be that Audio Editor Deluxe only has 2 tracks and that AudioDeluxeSoft.Inc May come out with a Professional version with more tracks? If enough people request it? But, As I said, The way that Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 can merge and add effects and additional sounds to your audio production? More tracks are just not needed anymore? Your Preference I suppose? (o;

All & All the Music files and even a few just Voice recordings I made and tested with Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 worked Great! and Very Easy and Fast! It has very nice Little help files with With pictures and all! (o; For helping you hookup stereo equipment and turntables etc. and that's very nice, It used my save folders for your work like, "Music Videos, Recorded Music, Recorded Streams, and Ringtones! and listed all my saved music and Audio files from other programs!, So, I have easy access to ALL my Audio files in Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1, Very nice as well. If you are in the market for a new Audio Editor or just looking for a way to edit your audio collection? Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 is a great choice! Whether your a newbie or a professional I can see using this software for some time to come and it is a nice addition to your available editing tools you may already have. The Price may be a little high?, But, Most High Quality Audio Editing applications run in this price range or more! and if you did buy it! That price allows you to install on 3 home PC's.
Right now! There WEB Site shows Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 on sale for $39.95! That's a very good price! But! Today its FREE! So, If your looking for an Audio Editor of great quality and fast! I would get it from GOTD today! Before you miss out! Hey! If you don't like it? Just uninstall it! No Problem right? (o;
And NO! I do not work for GOTD or AudioDeluxeSoft.Inc in any way shape or form! I am just very impressed when a great deal comes along for FREE on GOTD!
I feel that Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 deserves 2 thumbs Up! Today and a "Thank You!" To AudioDeluxeSoft.Inc for granting Audio Editor Deluxe 9.0.1 to be offered on GOTD for FREE today! As Always, A special "Thank You!" To all the folks at GOTD for all there hard Work and making all these applications available for us Geeks to Try, Test, Play With, and Use!

If it helps at all...

Some audio software comes with virtual drivers to overcome the DRM limitations of a lot of built-in audio chipsets -- the inability to record whatever's playing on your speakers/headphones. Sometimes these drivers are cool, sometimes they're not, but it's often a time will tell sort of thing, so as possible back up before installing any sort of driver in case some sort of compatibility problem crops up later.

On audio recording &/or listening quality...
Vista threw audio hardware companies into a downward spiral they've just recovering from -- either you sold hardware designed for XP & earlier with missing features, often missing quality, plus driver & compatibility problems, or you went back to the drawing board, starting fresh. Why does this matter? When add-on audio cards are trouble prone more people settle for on-board audio. That meant [means] fewer companies making audio hardware while motherboard makers have incentive to spend more for higher quality on-board audio chipsets.

The result is that nowadays when people listen to audio using their laptops & PCs most use the built-in sound. If you're concerned about the quality of that sound, chances are you use headphones or speakers that enhance [alter] whatever comes out of the speaker or headphone jacks. And for the most part it sounds OK. That's Not to say it's a good setup for recording...

For one thing when you use headphones/speakers that color [alter] the sound, you've got little or no idea what it actually sounds like, e.g. you can't say what someone else will hear with a different set of headphones. And since most people listen rather than record, that's where manufacturers like Realtek(R) spend their money when they design their widely used on-board audio chipsets. Again it could be fair to ask: "Why does that matter"?

Put simply, if at some point you want higher quality listening or recording you've got to use better hardware than your laptop/PC on-board audio. And if you want or need to hear what an audio file actually sounds like [perhaps the most important thing when you're editing audio], you need to use [preferably] speakers or [at least] headphones that accurately reproduce that sound -- otherwise when you use an equalizer for example you're often just compensating for weaknesses in your speakers or headphones. [Note: research before you buy -- it's VERY common for speakers & particularly headphones to be labeled Studio Reference or similar when they're anything but. FWIW Reasonably accurate headphones start at ~$30 on sale.]

On Audio Software...

Better software lets you do more, but it won't increase the basic quality of your audio file(s). You can remove some noise, but what you remove won't be purely noise -- you can add things like dynamic compression [lessening the difference between loudest & quietest] but again you lose some of your original data. If you start with something like a .wav file, the only stuff you can do without losing data is deleting a portion of the file &/or copy or cut & paste part of the file from one place to another. If the file has to be converted to .wav for editing you'll lose data [quality] there too.

That matters because you can [& should] choose your audio software based on what you like & what it'll let you do. You can use a $600 app or today's GOTD, Audio Editor Deluxe, & get the very same recording results. That's Not saying the $600 software won't have better &/or more accurate tools & such, but rather that you can do a lot of stuff in Audio Editor Deluxe just about as well as you can in a much more expensive app.

This looks like a really good program, but I'm sorry to say I can't seem to get it to work. Every time I try to load a file I get the following message..

"ACM Driver error"

I've tried taking it off my system and reinstalling it, but no joy..same message keeps popping up.

Can anyone help me with this before the giveaway expires?

IT says you can "upgrade" for $39.95 when you go to Help->Upgrade. I am not sure what the benefit of "upgrading" is since you seem to be getting the same program.

Opened, worked very well to record my voice clearly, I have been looking for something like this to add my voice to audio tracks, and this looks as if it will work great! Thanks to GAOTD and audioDeluxeSoft!!!

As mentioned above, don't forget to go into Help, and register it today!

$70.00 for what Audacity does for free, get real. No muti tracking and Audacity continues to have free updates.

Audio Editor Deluxe is easy to use because it's simple but Audacity is worth learning if you are serious about recording your own MP3 file for yourself and adjusting them to you liking ie NORMALIZING them.

no thanks.

Very impressive software. It's loaded with features and has an excellent -- and professional-looking -- user interface. They clearly used a proper team of people to create this software, including graphics designer(s) and audio expert(s). And, for a a refreshing change, the team clearly included native English speakers. This will replace Audacity in my arsenal. Thanks!

My machine contains a number of L&H TruVoice text to speech files and this gives me some more options.

When you get used to your various editors, in my case a very old version of paint shop pro for images and Gold wave which I've used since beta for audio, you are often reluctant change.
I use Audacity with extreme reluctance because as previously commented I find the interface most offputting.
Today, I think I've found my favourite audio editor, it's a pleasure to work in, everything seems to hand, whether it's extracting the audio from video file or instructions on how to attach my tape recorder to the computer.
It's a jack of all trades more or less and up to now everything I've tried has worked beautifully.
Music plays a very small part in my life but if I had to work on audio files I feel I could happily work on this program for hours at a time.
Probably even worth its very high price, for free it would be crazy to miss.

I have used Audacity, but I am always 'a beginner' with its interface. This looks much more friendly. Definitely a keeper.

It plays a test file fine in spite of giving a message about configuring the Windows mixer.

I'll test more things later and perhaps report again.

As far as I'm concerned, $70 is a pretty steep price tag for an audio editor...of curse, today is free, but without updates and the rest...
Thanks for the giveaway anyways, it ads to our choices...
I wouldn't change Audacity for anything...

Text to speech seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately it uses Microsoft's speech engine which isn't that good. Text to speech in this program is a cut and paste operation that has no ability to read a file or an ebook. After pasting some text and pressing the "Synthesize Speech" button the program reported an error (Invalid parameter(argument)) and acted like it blew up. Don't waste your time.

Installed it twice and both times it generated 'Exception EAccessViolation in module NCTAudioEditor2.dll at 00001B26.'

Installed on Vista 32bit. The program crashes immediately after the start. The Windows message: "The program has stopped working. Either try to search online for the solution and close - or just close".
