Last night I was DJing for my honors fraternity's AIDS benefit ball and since I'd never recorded my mix before, I decided to use my "new" linux laptop to record it. I threw the output of my amp to the input of the laptop's soundcard using an RCA to headphone jack cable. I used Gnome's Sound Recorder and Recorded to OGG (near CD quality).
So here's my situation - The OGG file is 3.5 hours long so I can't put it onto an audio CD - but that's what I'd like to do. Part of the reason I recorded the mix was for my own entertainment, but I've also had some people request that they'd like a copy.
Is there a utitily like Sony (formally Sonic Foundry) Acid Pro where I can edit the file like a non-linear video editor? This would also allow me to remove some of the dead time from when announcements were made and I had to turn down the music. The mic wasn't going through the mix so it just sounds like dead air. If there isn't something like that, I'd be satisfied with a program that I could say, take file mix.ogg and split it into tracks, each of 5 minute interval and name them mix1.ogg, mix2.ogg....mixN.ogg. A program like that would be awesome!
The laptop doesn't have a lot of space, so I'd prefer anything that could keep all the files in OGG instead of converting to WAV or anything.
Personally, I really like Audacity Both splitting and editing large sound files is pretty straightforward. I would recommend taking some time to read the tutorial though, as that will allow you to avoid a few frustrating dead ends. Good luck with it -- J.W.
You're welcome. I'm not a DJ and don't spend any real time editing audio files, but I have used Audacity to convert files from one format to another, and also to clip one section of audio track. Overall it's pretty intuitive, but like I said, I think it's worth going through the tutorial.
OT: BTW I visited your site - what's the story with the dancing robots and what's that song you've got in the background? I'll have to say it was pretty entertaining. -- J.W.
The robots are called Qrio and they were developed by an engineer who's an IEEE Fellow. They're the most advanced robot toy you can buy and I think they're supposed to be really expensive. The song in the background is "Renegade Master" by Wild Child. This particular mix is the Fatboy Slim remix, but I'm not sure if there's another one since this is the one I've heard most often.
Remove RPM files from wxWidgets. Compile wxWidgets. You do not know what options people used to compile RPM files. You just need wxGTK, but need GTK devel packages installed. If you want x11, you will need x11 devel packages installed.
