Hey guys! I'm selecting the parts for my new gaming desktop and I don't know too much about audio. I'm using the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard and I don't know if I should buy a Asus Xonar DG 24-bit 96 KHz Sound Card. I tried looking at the audio specs of both but I don't understand too much about it. So is it worth it and what are the differences? Thanks

Hi, I have a workout called Insanity and I want to extract the music from the audio from the DVDs. When you start the workout, you can choose to do the workout with or without the music. When you don't choose to play the music, the video is the exact same as the version with the music. So I know that the songs are stored on the DVD but I don't know to get them. Any solutions?

If you take one look at the deadmau5 portable speakers from KitSound and immediately think that they have been inspired, somewhat badly, by Mickey Mouse then I'm afraid you are showing your age and lack of cool. If, on the other hand, you are some hip young thing then you will instantly recognise the hand, or should I say the head, of deadmau5. ![deadmau51](/attachments/small/0/deadmau51.jpg "align-right") The Canadian DJ and producer known as [deadmau5](http://www.deadmau5.com/), real name Joel Thomas Zimmerman, might be based in Toronto but he has earned a global reputation in the music business, not least courtesy of his habit …

My applet creates a new sound every time an impact occurs, which is very frequently. How come, when the sounds become too numerous, the game ceases to run smoothly? Here is the code that gets called many, many times: class soundThread extends Thread { String sound; soundThread(String i_sound) { sound = i_sound; } public void run() { try{ URL path = new URL(getClass().getProtectionDomain().getCodeSource().getLocation(), sound+".wav"); AudioClip clip = Applet.newAudioClip(path); //checkpoint A clip.play(); //checkpoint B }catch(Exception e){System.err.println("err= soundThread_error");e.printStackTrace();} } } The longest pause occurs at `clip.play();`. Any clue why it would take so long to play the clip? And how can I …

I'm probably doing this wrong, because there has to be a way to do this. Here is my current code: import javax.sound.sampled.*; public class soundHandler{ soundHandler() { } public void newSound(String sound) { new soundThread(sound).start(); } } class soundThread extends Thread { String soundName; Clip clip = null; soundThread(String i_soundName) { soundName = i_soundName; } public void run() { try{ try{ try{ AudioInputStream stream = AudioSystem.getAudioInputStream(ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader().getResource(soundName)); DataLine.Info info = new DataLine.Info(Clip.class, stream.getFormat()); clip = (Clip)AudioSystem.getLine(info); clip.open(stream); }catch(Exception e){System.out.println("err= soundThread_errorLoadingSound ("+soundName+")");} clip.start(); }catch(Exception e){System.out.println("err = soundThread_errorPlayingSound ("+soundName+")");} Thread.sleep(150); //wait for it to finish, then close while(clip.isActive()){} clip.close(); }catch(Exception e){System.out.println("err= soundThread_error");e.printStackTrace();return;} } …

I am designing an online-radio Windows 8 app that will have all these radio channels that can be streamed online. so, my question is: How can I find the streaming URL of an online radio? These URLs are generally hid behind Flash players or ActivX elements. Google results say I can use URL Sniffers to get these URLs but none of these URL Sniffing softwares work on Windows 8.

I am looking for a developer who has experience with audio/video so we can start a very exciting project that combines music and technology. There is no money involved at this early stage, but together we'll build it up, find the necessary financial resources to get it started, and later we'll share the money :). Let me know if you are interested, thank you!

I currently have a problem where DVD's will not output any audio to the front speakers of my 5.1 surround sound unless something else is also sending audio there. For example, I watch a scene with lots of dialogue but I only have the background audio. If I open up my audio test at during this time and click on a front speaker to test, the test audio plays and I can also hear the audio from the DVD which should be coming from the front speakers (the speech). This problem happens in every DVD playing software used. I have …

My application has two parts; a server and multiple clients. This project has its implementation both on Windows(Swing) and Android. The Server sends a song which a client receives and starts playing; more like we watch videos on YouTube; streaming. Sending data in chunks and receiving the same is accomplished. How do I prompt the media player to play the song with incomplete media and provide the media player with data continuously so that it can keep playing?

Hello, I am trying to upload music files to a database for use on my website. However, the file doesn't seem to actually be going into the folder. I get the name of the file in phpmyadmin, but I don't see the file anywhere. Here's my script (I do have a directory in the database named music, so that doesn't seem to be the problem): <?php include "db_connect.php"; $tbl_name = "music"; $title = $_REQUEST['title']; $type = $_REQUEST['type']; $musicuploaddir = "music/"; $song = $musicuploaddir . basename($_FILES['song']['name']); mysql_query("INSERT INTO $tbl_name (id, song, title, type) VALUES ('', '$song', '$title', '$type')"); $entrynumber = mysql_insert_id(); …

Hi! It's time to get another laptop but with all the changes and options available, I'm a little overwhelmed. I travel a good deal, so I need a unit that is built solid but does not resemble a brick or is overly heavy. I was considering an iPad but I do not think it would offer everything I would need and is too expensive for what it delivers. So Ideally, I need one that is great for business travel and entertainment purposes with great battery life, durable construction, great graphics/ audio and awesome processing speed.

So far I have saved the voice in wav file now I want to compare it to the input stream. I have applied FFT using this API as it is compatible with Android: http://code.google.com/p/musicg/ I dont know much about this api either but, I think the FFT data is stored in FrequencyTimeDomainRepresentation object.

Hello, thanks for reading. I have recently noticed sound only coming from one speaker. I have done the obvious diagnoses and determined: [LIST] [*]both speakers work fine (on another PC using the same set-up); and [*]it is not the operating system (Windows) - I booted a recent Ubuntu Live CD and the problem persisted; hence [*]it must be my sound card / the female aux connector? :( [/LIST] I really appreciate any advice, thank you.

I'm in serious need of help getting a sound driver installed on my mother-in-law's computer! I had to reinstall Windows XP and after I did, the sound did not work. I have downloaded Intel Chipset Device Software and installed it and it says "Setup is complete." Then nothing happens and I can't find the software anywhere on the computer. I have rebooted the computer a couple of times and still no audio device.

Whenever I connect the internet directly to my computer, something kicks in, turning my taskbar into the old Windows color and knocking out my Windows Audio. This only happened today, as far as I know; I have been using our router ever since the internet came. I hope somebody walks me through this as I have absolutely no knowledge with tinkering with the softwares and such. Nonetheless, thank you. :)

I am trying to record many small MP3 files from my computer's microphone. There are numberous examples using mciSendString Library "Winmm.dll" to record .wav files. I find the .wav quality to be lacking and I really want to record straight into the MP3 format rather than converting my .wav files. Thank you for any help or guidance you can offer for this.

Here is a snippet of the code that I have thus far (Which I wish worked): [CODE] Dim PlayedSound as string If ComboBox1.SelectedItem = "Sound 1" Then PlayedSound = "Sound1" My.Computer.Audio.Play(My.Resources.(PlayedSound, AudioPlayMode.Background) [/CODE] So basically the combobox1 item which is selected is sent to a string and is then supposed to be played from my resources. The .wav file which is in my resources is named "Sound1" however I have no idea how to reference it. Any ideas? Thanks! :)

SRS has released an attachment for Apple’s iPod, iPad, and iPhone devices. As a musician, I really have a deep understanding of how tonal range works on audio devices. I was very pleased to hear that I would get to do a review of this, although I have to admit I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to audio attachments that claim to improve sound quality. I’ll get into detail about my experiences shortly, but first let’s look at exactly what the SRS iWow 3D actually is.

OK so I am not getting any sound on my computer right now - it is a Dell Latitude D630 and running XP service pack 3 (I believe). Point is, right now my computer does not recognize that I have any sound devices whatsoever. I had been messing with asio4all software and may have changed some settings that have now messed up my regular sound - I tried uninstalling the asio4all to hopefully force it to go back to normal, but of course it did not. I also tried re-downloading the driver, but it just told me that the hardware …

Hi there, Not sure how the best way of asking this is but i've been playing around with HTML5 and the audio tag. I've managed to get multiple audios playing on a webpage, however it only works in certain browsers. In my case if I view the website on safari, chrome or IE all the sound files get displayed and are allowed to be played but if i use firefox only the first audio file is shown and allowed to be played. These audio files appear when a random entry from a database is displayed on my webpage. Trying to …
