Song is an MP3 from I-Tunes


I downloaded the song off of my lap top e-mailed to my main LOR computer just like have done with most of my other songs I did check to see if I could use the beat wizard and the vu wizard with all of my other sequences and I can for the life of me I can not get this particular sequence to respond to the other wizard controls

I do strongly recommend converting the audio using audacity or something. Among other things, this one file may have different copy protection settings than your other files, and converting it in audacity would likely strip those settings.

You also need to download the LAME editor to encode files to MP3. There should have been a link for that right next to where you downloaded Audacity from.

If you downloaded it from iTunes, it is not an MP3 file but an iTunes MP4 file

You need to convert it to anothjer format..such as a WAV or MP3 file.

Well with my luck this would be the song, I have sent the file to jimswinder for him to look at I am trying to keep this sequence under the radar because if I can pull it off I think it is going to look pretty neat, :cool:

Hey Don...

I was not able to get the beat wizard to work on the song you sent me either. But I did try converting it again to a MP3, and was able to get it to work...so maybe it was just corrupted some how. Check your email.

Can anyone tell me how to convert to a wave file when I down load from I-tunes the file comes as an AAC file, I convert to a MP3 file right away but I am not sure how to convert to a wave file

I have this same problem and am not able to figure it out. Both files I am trying today say MP3 file but I keep getting the message -- Can't init conversion. All other songs have worked fine.



Any suggestions?
