: About a week ago I discovered this amazing utility call CE96,which allows you to record/edit/sample/convert *.wav files of all types!
: Thar's right!You can record a sample of your harp playing in *.wav format and compress it to MP3Layer3 or
: save it as a PCM file and add all kinds of affects to it,enhancing your sound in magnificent ways!It would be excellent to utilize this utility and include a "players" page here at the site that allowed us to exchange and listen to each other's styles,riffs and sounds.There would be NO problem with file sizes of these samples since the MP#Layer3 codec compresses audio files to enable incorporation of nearly endless quantities of such files.I encourage both the Webmaster and everyone to download and experiment with this amazing godsend of a utility!You can find it at-
I work with two programs regularly: one is Melody Assistant, a midi program that enables me to transpose keys and alter the tempo without altering the pitch. Great for learning songs that previously weren't on your repertoire.
For recording myself I use Cool Edit. That program has about the same features as the one you mentioned. Plus: the latest version features an optional plug-in that creates a fully functional multi-track recording facility. Here's an option for all of you mylti-instrumentalists to jam with themselves without having to revert to one of those dreadful harmonica racks around your neck.
Neither of these two programs is free, however. Melody Assistant can be had for less than 20 bucks, but Cool Edit is rather expensive, especially when you buy the optional multi-track module as well.
But if you look carefully, there's also freeware available on the web with about the same functionality. And I don't mean shareware guys. The people having built that have put a lot of effort init to make it look and work good, and they are usually selling their work at fair prices. So if you use shareware and you like it: buy it!
