    Low hiss in mp3 in Sound Studio
    I'm using "Felt Tip" Sound Stidio to editi all my audio tracks together and am getting a low hiss. The files were originally aiff taken into iTunes then taken back out and into Sound Studio 3 and resaveds as mp3 because my iDVD crashes if I try to drag in anything else. Help Before Christmas. 646 images and 21 Audio files.

    Hi Jim, I'm not familiar with Sound Studio... What is "felt tip"? Why not use Garageband or Audacity (free) to edit your audio files? Thanks Rounik btw, could the problem with iDVD be due to the size of the aiff files?

    Felt Tip is the company that makes Sound Studio I have Adobe CS5 Media Encoder and Soundbooth. Should I have used them? I'm not familiar with them.

    what kind of "edits" are you doing to your audio tracks? Are you cleaning up background noise... or simply cutting and pasting bits? You know Garageband can be a pretty quick way to edit audio... :)

    Thanks for the response. I'm cutting and pasting and tried a little EQ increase. It's getting late for me to try GarageBand. How do I get each audio image into GB? In SondStudio I couldn't find anything to cleanup backgraound noise so I tried Noise Gate Expander filter, it helped a little but the quality went down.

    Importing an audio file into Garageband is as easy as dragging it in to the main area of the interface. Again, use wave and aiff for better quality. To cleanup the background noise you could use Audacity (free) - but the best noise removal plugins/software are expensive - though some have demos, e.g. iZotope RX and Soundsoap I think has a demo... The Noise gate won't affect the actual quality of the sound - but it will cut out any sound under a certain threshold so might sound "forced" and "cut-up". Use it sparingly... :)

    I tried GB by dragging in 2 of the 20 audio pieces I'm using out of iTunes 160 kbs 44,100khz but couldn't figure out how to blend the end of one into the beginning of the second also could't find out how to save the as something higher than MP3 Thanks
