Ripping Songs Off Myspace, Youtube, Purevolume and all that

Recommended Posts

Caillou's instructions:

1. Open Audacity

2. Click Edit

3. Select Preferences

4. Select "2 (Stereo)"

5. Make sure the 2 boxes are not checked (the play song while recording and play new track boxes)

6. Click OK

7. Click the record button

8. Play the song on myspace or whatever

9. When it's done, click stop

10. Get rid of the silence that was recorded before you pressed play, and after you pressed stop

11. Enjoy

When you export it, it will be a .wav unless you download that add on that'll let you export as .mp3 (lame_enc.dll)

That's just a hassle, so throw the song on itunes and convert it there OR

caillou recommends Power MP3 WMA Converter, OR

just download the that add on so you can export it as mp3 (lame_enc.dll)

=) Have fun kids.

FAQ!!!

Q: The song is bad too loud so it sounds like crap, what the fuck caillou?

A: I like to set the input volume to 0.1, but this depends on your soundcard, so play around.

Q: wtf is input volume?

A: aud.jpg

Q: I don't want to set my preferences each time I rip a song, what the fuck caillou?

A: You don't have to, once you set it to "2 (stereo)" it'll stay like that unlees you change it.

It depends on your sound card to what you should have the input volume at. I have mine full and its pretty much perfect volume I think.

But great simple to follow guide.
