Projects / tape2mp3


tape2mp3 is a collection of programs which together can help in the process of converting tapes to mp3s. After recording your wav files from tapes, tape2mp3 will scan for track boundaries and split the giant wav file into smaller ones based on periods of silence in the file.

    tape2mp3 again
    life could be so easy...
    i found that both problems mentioned above can easyly be solved
    first: it is no problem to have libsnd0 and libsnd1 installed together(no conflicts if you just install libsnd0 without the -devel and -progs packages, if you want to compile tape2mp3 you however have to temporarily uninstall libsnd1-devel and install libsnd0-devel, after compile you can change that again)
    second: tracks are only extracted, if there is a few seconds of silence at the beginning, so you have to start recording a few seconds before the music starts to get the first track extracted.
    now that i found these things out, everything seems to work fine
    seems to be the best tool around forsplitting wavfiles
    i've built myself both src- and binary-RPMS and changed afew things, so you can start it easier from any directory. if anyone's interested in these, let me know

    i tried tape2mp3 to split wav files from phono records; seems to work great, except of two things: i can't seem to get it to work with libsnd1 and the other thing is that each time a track is being split tape2mp3 seems to 'forget' the first track(song), i.e. if i record an album-side with four songs tape2mp3 checks out the last three songs fine, but i can't find the first one on my harddisk.
    can someone help me?
