I've been using the beat wizard, but opened a song today to start sequencing and was told "can't init conversion". Can anyone help me? What did I do? It is an mp3 song that I purchased and downloaded from Amazon. Was able to use beat wizard on the other song. What happened?

Sometimes MP3 files get corrupted and you may have to redownload it, and then reconvert it to a CBR as George said. I use 192kbps rate for mine using them on an DC-MP3 Showtime Director. 128kbps just doesn't have a good enough quality for my liking, and sometimes sound a bit squawky, squeaky or scratchy. But that's me. LOL

Interesting. I have noticed the same issue with a couple of audios I have, but just chalked them up to a lousy DL version. How did you arrive at the 192kbps rate? Trial and error? Or, some other method?

By trying it out and see if it would work with the DC-MP3 Showtime Director, especially since it says 128kbps recommended, so I just bumped it up to 192kbps and it worked.

BTW: 256kbps and 320kbps will work, but the Director will sometimes play it once, then the next time through skip it or lock up, sometimes it will play those just fine. So i just played around with the varying common bit rates and kept the one that worked and sounded best for me. And that was the 192kbps rate and been using that rate for 3 years now.
