I've got a question:

Seems to me that the .wav files don't have the same sound quality that the .mp3 files, after you've converted them using the winamp software.. They sound flat. The mp3's i'm using are 128 kbs, and winamp says that the .wav's are then 14H kbs.

So, what's 14H, and is there some lost sound quality? Because I'll find something else if there is..

Thanks!

The trick is the CD-reader plugin (see big post for link)

I'm a newbie so this question may be in the wrong forum....

I downloaded some MP3s and I'm trying to make an audio CD. I converted the MP3s into WAVs using out_wave.dll and them used Easy CD Creator (which came with my CD Writer) to put them on a CD. It worked, sort of. The music seems to have lost all volume. (For eaxample, when replaying the CD through WinAmp the equalizer no longer lights up much).

WHat did I do wrong??

MP3 to MP3 CD

Well, MP3 CD Players are emerging into the seen these days. Even few CD/VCD players supports MP3. This is how you create a CD with 100 plus MP3s which can be plyed using MP3 compatible CD Player. Keep this tips handy.[list=A][*]Basic way is to burn all the MP3 files on CD's route directory. This is a universal, highly compatible method.[*]Some players reads MP3 files even inside sub-folders. Check with the manufacture.[*]Very few players reads and loads MP3s right from the M3U play lists. Check with the manufacturer.[*]CD-RW media is NOT 100% compatible with all players out there. CDR is much more reliable.[*]Change/modify tags and/or file names before attempting a burn as requrired. Once burned, no point of regrate.[*]Try to burn in a single session. Multi-sessioin is not 100% compatible.[*]80min CD are not yet standardized. Avoid them for the time being.[/list=A]

That's got nothing to do with the out_mp3.dll configuration.
It all depends on the MP3 Encoder you have installed in your system dir.
The default with Windows is the Fraunhofer IIS codec (l3codeca.acm)
However, this is the limited free version.
You have to register / pay for the full unlimited version.
http://www.iis.fhg.de/audio

Though you can always try this alternative full version c/o: http://www.ojmstirling.free-online.co.uk/codec.zip

(oooh . . . sshhh . . . weyhey)

Alternatively, use CDex to rip 'n' burn / convert WAV to MP3 / etc.

That's not version 1.263, is it, Egg? 'Cause I'd recommend using 1.263 if I weren't a moderator.

I want to thank everyone for their advice so far. Got a question about the main part. he was explaining what to do and get to do certain examples and in notes he says that there are problems with easy cd recorder can anyone help? did burn one cd from them its working fine but are in wav format rest of my stuff is mp3s.I had nusic match jukebox used that it was ok,but i missed winamp so got it back and using easy cd recorder to burn now.Should all files be in a certain format? I will be probably recording cds and mp3 cds. i might be getting the nomad jukebox in the future. mentioning this just in case of any file conflicts in the future. again i thank all for all of the past information as well as future help

Is it possible to remaster CDs with DSP software and the Winamp equalizer?

Yep. Just use the Diskwriter plugin together with the EQ and DSP plugin. When saving the song to wave, make sure the eq and plugins you want are active.

To use the Diskwriter plugin read this -

Tutorial

I need to figure something out. I just started using and I'm trying to figure a bunch of things out, most of all, how to record (through a microphone) a simple MP3 file. You guys are comfusing me with all the strange words ::stop the voice!::
Scary... Can you tell me where a easy, free, in English tutorial is to introduce the highly computer literate, but MP3-confused reader?

Well, for starters, you've revived a very very old thread here.
This thread is totally out-of-date.
