Gold Audio Suite. Didnt work for me.
Installed and when I open I get nothing but an Icon in the taskbar.
The Icon it put on the desktop show it is "Program Files\Gold Audio Suite\guide\guide.exe"" which doesnt even sound like an audio program.

This was my first time downloading fro giveawayoftheday.com and now I am not sure I want to down load anything else.
I give the whole thing a ZERO so far.
I hope it is better for you.

Had the same problem as some others who have Vista, the reg server crashed on me. Tried to install it twice. I do not have the time trying to figure out exactly how I can get it to install with no problems. Audacity is still the program that I choose and it is free. Thanks GAOTD for trying.

Cam Studio v.2 and his codec is open source and record everything that is on the screen(audio and video) and convert to Swf or avi.Also have a section:Swf producer -you can use like a convertor from avi to swf.Read about:Mp3 My Mp3 without Relekvant when install.Version 3 record every audio sound,riping CD and is free.Relekvant is not an obligtion to install and the antivirus and peoples from google say about relekvant that is malicious but you will find it in many free soft.

“Gold Audio Suite” is practically the same as the 7-23-09 GOD “My Audio Studio”. Same issues and all. I got it to install, register and work on my vista home premium 32 bit, by doing the following:

1. “Start” Menu
2. Click on “Computer”, then “System properties”
3. From Tasks menu choose “Advanced system settings”
4. Click on “Continue”
5. You’ll see the Advanced tab open, at performance, click on “settings” (must be logged on as Administrator to make changes)
6. Select the “Data Execution Prevention” tab
7. Select “Turn On DEP for all programs and services except those I select”
8. Click the “Add…” button
9. Find “Regsvr32″ and add it.
10. Check the box and click OK.
11. Reinstall the software
12. Register it
13. Don’t forget to UNDO the settings you just did by repeating steps 1 to 6, then on
Step 7. Select “Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only”,
Click on “OK” so it can return to the way it was before.
Good Luck!

Installed fine on XP Pro. First sound file I tried to convert to mp3 was "Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 (Scherzo).wma", a sample wma file that comes with the OS. All I got was a "Format Not Supported" dialog box. Since neither of these formats are uncommon, I'm not really impressed with the formats supported. Was going to try on Win XP Home and Vista 64, but decided with the lack of support of even common formats it wasn't worth the trouble. The de-install seemed to work, except even that came up with the, "Some elements could not be deleted. These can be deleted manually." Thanks GOTD, it looked promising.

GAOTD offering: "Gold Audio Suite"

H/W & S/W/-OS Platforms: Acer Aspire 8930G "monster laptop" with 4Gb DDR3, Nvidia GeForce 9600M-GT w/1Gb on-board DDR3 GRAM, Intel Centrino Dual-Core T6400 2.0-GHz, Vista Home Prem. SP2 w/every patch & hotfix Redmond's released thru this morning for this setup;

Installation: relatively flawless (no complaints at all);

Ran the App: It (to ME, at least), was worse than totally worthless;

In addition, only because I was fortunate enough to have gotten Yesterday's GAOTD of the EASUS Data Recovery Wizard Pro, was I able to get my browsers, & just about everything else on the system, back to operating condition, after trying to UNinstall this program.

Problems while it was installed & I was "trying it out":
It would only pick up sounds from my microphones,(stereo, on-board);
I had every Recording Source in the "Mixer Panel" for "Recording Devices" set to an average record-level, but NONE showed ANY input except for the mic;
I tried setting it manually to every other source I've got, which is quite a few, since between the Realtek on-the-mobo sound-chip, and the on-the-Video-board Nvidia sound capabilities, (which is kind of wierd, but they're there, so I tried them), but nothing but the mics worked or had ANY effect at all;

BIG Problems: Once I found that this program can't handle many audio file formats at all, and there have been recent GAOTD apps which work MUCH better and are more useful, I decided "This isn't for me", and used the "Uninstall" function it put in the Start Menu entry to take it out; "Then the fun began" :o(

I first lost my IE8 browser's ability to "go" anywhere, with it constantly "locking up" ("Program Not Responding"), and had to "kill the process" from the Task Manager to get my system to shut down the now-disabled browser-From there, I couldn't get it to even start up without "going light" & immediately becoming "Not Responding" (back to the Task Manager's "Kill Process" option just to "get the machine back");

Firefox 3.5.x was also "a little strange", but at least it WOULD get me onto the 'Net, although there were some VERY "strange things" going on, and so I didn't trust it's built-in OR add-ons for security features at that point;
(I'd rather not say why, because if it happens to you, you'll know, and if it doesn't, then I'm not going to "alert the Bad Guys" to a potential problem that MIGHT, "possibly, under certain circumstances", be an "exploit", which I do NOT have any indication or proof of, but I prefer to err on the side of caution);

Chrome & Safari also had troubles, none of which could be traced to any one common thing;

And Maxthon-2 wouldn't work, (since it's based on IE, that figures);

Results: I had to waste the entire afternoon getting my system "restored" (when I'd planned on doing an oil-change to the van, & flushing the brakes on my 8-ton truck so it can go to the shop for a tire-&-wheel repair safely);

Fortunately, the system had insisted that I run an "Incremental Backup Update" to the existing "full System Backup" just this AM, and BEFORE I'd downloaded the GAOTD-offered file, (emphasis: "offered"; They didn't wrte it, so it wasn't their fault that I had any problems with it!);
...So I DID end up having a "known-clean & morning-fresh" backup to restore the system from (thank goodness!).

I have NO idea why I had such different results from all of the comments I'd read before downloading this program, but I know that there's nothing "irregular" with my system since backing it up to the state it was in just before the download & installation of this app, so for ME, personally, "IF I'd BOUGHT it, then I'd have been back at the store with 'My Cousin the Attorney's card', handing it to the Manager & getting both a full refund AND getting paid my "going Consultant's Rate" for the half-day's labor I spent on this 'software', but I DIDN'T "buy" it, so I'm not raising cain about it - I'm just letting others know what happened to ME with it;

It WAS "free", so "I got my money back, less the time & aggravation I spent". (Hey, exactly what did I expect for "free", anyway?)

Sorry to GAOTD that it didn't work (for ME), since it seemed like it MIGHT have been a good app to have on hand;

(UNLESS you want something that will record VERY nicely from a microphone, in which case, the sound quality was very good, even with "less than ideal settings" for the recording; For THAT purpose, if it doesn't affect the operation of your PC in any other ways while it's installed, then it's pretty good!);

As for the other problems which I {PERSONALLY} had, I don't know if they were due to the "Uninstaller", but I think they may have been, since I'd also tried to capture a small "piece" of a "streaming audio" from the still-working IE8 browser, and it was only recorded by the coincidental location of my stereo mics picking up the sound from the built-in speakers; And since the browser was used to GET the "streaming audio feed", that further points to something "not right" with the "Uninstall" option in the Start Menu's entries this program had installed, since it was AFTER the "Uninstall", that the browsers started "having apoplexy" when I tried to use them.
Thanks again to GAOTD for the previous offering, which let me "save my bacon" enough to get the backups installed in much les time than it normally would've taken if I couldn't have run the "Restore" program from the system's HDD, which was "Recovered" by the earlier GAOTD offering which I'd installed & havenothing but glowing reports on - (See my "Comment" on the Data Recover Professional 4.3.6, earlier this week, if it wasn't deemed too long to post by the moderators; I haven't looked yet);

Interesting side-notes: The Data Recovery Program, which let me get the backup discs to "restore the system" without the use of the "on-each-disc" Restorer app, saved me a LOT of time, and was available ONLY because the Data Recovery app worked SO well;

The "Huh?" part: The Data Recovery app offered me so many options for recovering different "levels" of the machine's "proper working state", before the Uninstall SEEMED to have "trashed everything up", was almost bewildering, which is why I didn't even "waste any time" trying to recover anything, since I'd just made a full machine-level backup;

It was just easier to "do a Full Restore" and have the machine working again.

Oh, well; We win some, we lose some, and there's some that defy explanation! :o)


(Please excuse any typos or other "goof-ups"; I'm hoping to still get at least ONE of my vehicles finished up today!)

#57 I have seen at least 2 variants of recording software that produce their own custom T-Pseudo driver. At least one of those was given away here some time ago before I started using this particular laptop. All I've used so far do not present a full device level input function but an API level so the driver is tied to their individual application. There are NO copyright issues in the UK to produce a T-driver to permit the recording of the sound mixer output since it is completely legal to record our own VOIP/Skype conversations. Or anything we compose using music composition software. OEM Device manufacturers were presurised with threats from action under the draconian USA DMCA if they wanted to trade within USA borders as it is possible to use the sound-mixer record input to defeat certain audio copy protections.

What is wrong is blanket claims by basic sound recording software of a certain functionality when that functionality is entirely dependant upon operating sytstem, driver and hardware support for it.

1 out of 3 designed for Vista OEM laptops I have, had the sound-mixer audio input hidden but usable once unhidden the two newer designed for vista OEM laptops have no hardware support and therefore no driver support in vista or if XP is installed on the same hardware. It is a common problem and is well publicised in forums and blogs around the world. Older "works with Vista" OEM products are more likely to have older sound chipsets that still have the hardware support and chance of driver level support of the hidden input devices. On my compaq presario which had no sound mixer input at all, I circumvented that limitation by adding an older PCI soundcard that did support all the inputs I wanted.

Vista has long been know to have been a DRM loving operating system, before it was in public beta there were articles describing of how Microsoft DRM compliance was going to work and got many personal rights supporting bloggers up "in arms" and demonstrated how Microsoft got into bed with hollywood and the music industry on DRM.

Several comments have referred to the problem of sound cards with limitations. This is a serious issue with some of the newer laptops with integrated sound cards...meaning NONE of these audio recorders will work properly despite their promises. Not even the wonderful (and FREE) Audacity can handle it.

There are two solutions:

[B]1) The Audacity Trick[/B]: make up a cable with two mini-jacks (get these at any computer store). Plug one into the speaker (output) jack, and the other into the microphone (input) jack. Set the source to be the microphone or line-in, adjust settings and record: save the output as MP3 of whatever quality you want, FLAC, or WAV.

[B]2) The Freecorder Toolbar[/B] I hate extra toolbars too, but theis one can be made to disappear and reappear when required. Download and install carefully (or you will also get the highly annoying "ASK" search engine taking over your entire browser...so UNCHECK these options). Set up the preferences (MP3 or WAV), and hit the record button then start your YouTube video or podcast or whatever. Read http://radio.about.com/od/softwareplayerstolisten/gr/blFrecordTool.htm" and download it here http://freecorder.com/sound-recorder/freecorder.php"

Hope that helps

Well im fairly new to GAOTD, so i doubt i really know what to look for or to mention in a review, but one thing stood out is that my Norton antivirus blocked the installation because Win32.Induc.A attempted to rename a file. after reading the first comment this morning, i did what it said and disabled Norton as i installed it. then with my first time running it, Norton stopped the .exe from opening for the same reason. obviously somethings up with it if Norton has a virus definition for it. Lol, other than that, it seems like a great program, even tho i havent used it...

#5: "...it boasts support for latest windows opoerating systems and claims “Record any sound passing through your sound card...”Which is only true IF your soundcard HAS those inputs and from Vista onwards most sound-chipsets either do not in hardware or have them removed in the music industry sanctioned device drivers."

FWIW, if the drivers or registry prevents some features, it's because of the PC/laptop manufacturer adding that in... It's not Windows, & in most cases it's not the company making the chips or sound card. I've no idea how prevalent restricting audio features is, but it's not *that* common based on what I've seen on-line... maybe ironically, if it were all that common you'd see plenty of fixes available -- not hard if it's only a registry key or manufacturer customized driver.

"They could have written a special pseudo-device driver that intercepts all sound output and offers it as in input pin on the pseudo-device as well as passing the sound on to the sound chip proper but they did not. "

Yes they could have, but audio software costing literally hundreds more doesn't either -- that's just not in the realm of what they do, plus may involve copyright issues. If this is a growing problem, then maybe it would be a good opportunity for any developers reading this page... come up with a share-ware or payware universal driver set as described?

#21: "Another shambolic situation arising from GOTD’s seeming inability to differentiate between established products from established developers and new & untried stuff ... GOTD made Gold Wave available. There’s a space between the words but novices wouldn’t have noticed..."

I agree that the Gold Wave name was miss-leading, & lots of people were probably fooled because they were anxious to get Goldwave for free, when it's never been offered free anywhere AFAIK. But that reflects on the developers, not GOTD. The GOTD team does a really remarkable job just coming up with 7 offers a week!... it's not as if Adobe's going to give away licenses for Photoshop. And their software offers with very few exceptions do exactly what they claim -- maybe not always as well as we'd like, but by & large they do work, just like today's offer of Gold Audio Suite does work, & pretty well IMHO. The fact it has *Gold* in it's name is irrelevant -- I mean lots & lots of companies & products use the word Gold, just like loads use Silver or Bronze or Platinum.

"The ‘gold’ standard for this type of software is Goldwave..."

It is good, but no where near *that* good any more. It's been around a very long time, & was a leader before the release of: Cakewalk, or Sonic Foundry / Sony, or Cool Edit / Adobe, or Cubase, or Logic, or dozens of other truly pro software.

So, after today it's only $40 to "record streaming audio"?


Is there really any one of you who has a use for this?

"Golly, I can't wait to record some neat-o computer sounds...maybe the scratchy audio tracks from a few YT videos - that'll impress the heck out of my friends, when they see I have a hard drive full of useless noise..."

All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder (for XP obviously - if you have V or 7 you're way off if you think you need this)

As usual I'm with Irish up there (#31):
I don't expect everyone to speak, read or write in English - that would be ridiculous. This is a smaller world where all of the languages and cultures co-mingle and there really is no "proper" dialect.
If you can’t be bothered to have your home page proof-read by a person well versed enough in the language to make corrections – then I cannot believe that you give half a duck fart about your software.
You want to infest your machine with inferior (or potentially harmful) software under the premise of “open mindedness” – then good for you.

#27: "Would not install on Vista Home Premium, every time I try, I get error “Microsoft Regieter Server stopped working” and an info windiw with details ” unable to register NCTAudioPlayer2.dll, RegSvr32 failed"

There are 11 NCT*.dll files that need to be registered. for 32 bit Windows, they need to be in Windows System32 folder -- for 64 bit, they need to be in SysWOW64. The easiest way to register is to get a copy of Regdrop.exe (I have it on the desktop), you may have to set it to run as admin (right click, properties, compatibility tab), & drag these files one at a time on top of it. Otherwise you can type the regsvr32 command on the command line -- search cmd -- with loads of info on-line.

* * *

#30: "As a Vista user, I was faced with the problem of not being able to record streaming Audio. For some reasons, my favorite Audacity is also not working"

#32 talks about one way that might work, & you'll see something similar at the web site linked to by #37. However there are systems, more laptops than desktop PCs, where certain features are disabled *intentionally* by some combination of drivers & registry entries. Sometimes you can find the solution on-line searching using your system make & model, while other times it's a matter of just diving into the registry &/or trying different driver software. Another alternative is add-on hardware, though with some of the really cheap USB alternatives for example I'd research to make sure just what it will & will not do.

* * *

#43: "I click on setup and all I get is a thing saying activating then it eventualy goes to unable to connect try later"

Maybe check your firewall to make sure setup can call out? Or the connection at that particular time might have been down, so as it says, try again. :-)

Gold Audio Suite uses the NCT***.dll code libraries that some folks have had problems with in Vista -- if you're one of them, figure you ought to know that 1st. ;-)

Otherwise it seems to run fine, even in the win7 64 RC. If you have problems with the NCT*** files/libraries not registering, a simple alternative is to hunt down a copy of regdrop.exe -- put a copy on your desktop & drag the files onto it from Windows' Explorer. [Please note: RegDrop may need to run as admin, & only works for 32 bit files, which the NCT*** files - that go in the system32 folder for 32 bit Windows, & in the SysWOW64 folder in 64 bit -- are.]

Another potential problem: Some software adds Macrovision DRM to your system, & in XP creates a folder at C:\Documents and Settings\ReleaseEngineer.MACROVISION ... That doesn't work in Vista or 7, but the registry entries are inserted none-the-less. If your Windows' Registry has been altered this way, Gold Audio Suite (like several other apps) will not work in Vista or 7. You can find 1 discussion of it here: [http://forum.vuze.com/thread.jspa?messageID=171723]. Note that win7 is similar -- not exactly as described for Vista. At any rate, it's relatively easy to fix if you're not shy about editing the registry.

Gold Audio Suite itself features a main, home window like the Roxio & Nero disc burning suites -- you launch the individual apps from here, though most will run individually on their own. The Recording app includes Auto Gain Control, & the Voice Active System but is rather sparse -- the Audio Editor also records & gives you advantages such as level meters. The CD tools are minimal, using StarBurn code, and you also get an Audio Extractor, an Audio Converter, plus an Audio Grabber Wizard.

All in all it's not a bad little self-contained suite if you like things kept simple -- i.e. you don't want to get lost or spend time learning more complicated alternatives. The downsides are that it won't work for everybody because of the NCT code, it puts an old copy of Lame in your system folder, it doesn't include pattern matching noise removal, & it doesn't use plug-ins.

Alternatives include Audacity (that someone always mentions), which can be confusing to use -- I recommend the portable version [http://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/audacity_portable] if you want to try it out without altering your system... you don't need to install the Portable Apps program (though nothing wrong with it at all), portable apps run fine from your hard drive, & to uninstall just delete the folder.

Wavosaur is a nice, free audio editor [http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Wavosaur], & for multi-track, there's the free Traverso [http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Traverso_DAW]. A lot of video editing software includes some audio capabilities -- Window's Movie Maker was *just* updated (Vista & 7 only) with more audio editing features. If you have the Nero or Roxio burning suites, the included audio app may be all you need, & the same with Creative's editor if you have one of their sound cards.

#14 maybe you didn't read and have a very narrow experience with Vista OEM equipment? If you would like to suggest some drivers or hidden registry tweak for an HP dv9850ea laptop that will force the driver and vista to expose the Sound Mix or Wave input pin I'd be willing to listen, it would be useful on a compaq presario I have too or a cheap gateway 3108 laptop, all Vista OEM machines. An older now deceased PacardBell laptop did have show hidden devices option that did reveal the sound mixer but most being sold in the past 2 years don't have it implimented in the chipsets so no driver hack can enable them.

#32 that only works if the Vista driver and the built in soundchip have and offer to the operating system the extra input sources. OEM Vista machines invaribly nowadays do not. If you re-read my comment #5 you should see I mentioned the "Show Disabled Devices" and yes Show Hidden Devices is also another possible workaround but if the OEM chipset and driver don't enumerate the input pins to vista it won't apear.

Any audio application claiming Vista or Windows 7 compatability must include its own T-pseudo device driver if they want to make blanket claims of being able to record anything you can hear on a PC. Anything else is either deliberate deception or proof the developer has no real experience with Vista based OEM systems.

It installs easily on xp home sp3 and works wonderfully well, has one more feature than the audio studio a few weeks ago, a cd ripper.
Thanks for a great program. I have many virus and spyware detectors but nothing harmful found.

I was able to install with no problems on Vista home basic. However the serial number that came with it is not valid for this version when I try to register it.

This is all you need to capture streaming audio, and it's free. http://www.roemersoftware.com/free-sound-recorder.html

Vista Home Premium x64 SP2 system - would not install at all.

What a bummer - and I tried everything to resolve this problem (turned off my firewall/anti-virus program, turned off Windows DEP control feature, even tried to install as Administrator) but absolutely nothing worked. So, two-thumbs-down from me for today's GiveAway. What a big shame.

100% FREEWARE ALTERNATIVE (for those interested) IS:CDBurnerXP - v.4.2.5

Per the developer, this freeware program is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/2003 Server/Vista/Windows 7. It also supports x32 and x64 formats.

I have to register the programm using the "information provided" in the 'readme' file, right? Well, every time I enter the code, it says "the code in invalid or not correct for this version". Hmmm

#5 and #26

Windows Vista and recording "What you hear" (How to!)

Anyone in windows vista wishing to use the creative option "What you hear" or similar (Realtek has this feature named as "Stereo Mix" and various other sound cards devices have it named various other things as well)

Go into your control panel under vista, and by default, vista will show a although user friendly, a much to simplified version of the control panel, up on the left hand side there should be an option for "Classic View" Select this:

Now in the classic view of the control panel, open up "SOUND"

Click on the RECORDING Tab

Now usually you'll only have one, maybe 2 things in this list, heres what you do,

Right click anywhere in the white area of this list

A sub menu should appear

Click on "Show Disabled Devices"

Now the list should grow and allow you to select "What you hear" or "Stereo Mix" or similare option. You must select the disabled "What you hear" or "Stereo Mix" and right click on it to select "Enable"

If a device isn't listed yet, another sub menu option MAY be available for "Show hidden devices", hopefully this will give you all the rest of the options.

Now to get your sound editor to use this audio device, you must select the "What you hear" or "stereo Mix" and right click to set it as "default"

I really have a problem with software descriptions with improper grammar and spelling. So it's thumbs down for me based on that alone.

As a Vista user, I was faced with the problem of not being able to record streaming Audio. For some reasons, my favorite Audacity is also not working (to record streaming audio).
So, I use the FREE RECORDER TOOL BAR to record, and use AUDACITY to edit.

Tried on Vista 64 OS as well and get dll error messages, also continues to say trial version even though it won't run properly with a dll error message.

Need to code this better, I will uninstall, I am concerned about the error messages too risky this time.

Thanks anyway
