    MP3 EDIT IN WINDOWS OR POWERPOINT (xp )

    HI

    Not sure if this is in the right section?

    I have got an Mp3 which I need to edit. I only need to take the chorus of the mp3, because I want to attach it to a set of PowerPoint slides. I want to be able to cut the chorus and have it as an mp3. Also I would like to fade out the churs if you know what I mean. So is there any freeware that I can do this with, or can I use apple software.

    Also if I was able to cut the chorus, how would I add this in to my set of PowerPoint slides?

    Regards

    Ooooh boy

    If I understand correctly, you have a piece of music with multiple tracks (chorus, lead singer, guitar, drums, piano, etc.), and you want to remove one of those tracks. The easy answer is, you can't (or, in the words of Futurama's Bender, "You're boned"). You really need the original tracks to edit out one of them. I know there's studio software that does a fair job of pulling out bits and pieces, but even if there was a free version, I'm betting it's waaaay to tough to figure out.

    If it's a popular piece, see if there's a karaoke version you can use. If all else fails, hum your own version. ;-)

    Re: Ooooh boy

    Could you tell me why you change the subject when you reply to a thread? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    From my view it can look like this: I check some new threads in some or all the forums I follow (I read threads in Flat Mode), then I go to the Main Index page and select 6hrs or 12hrs or 1day, to see, via that search, if there are any other interesting posts that I may have missed. In that search result, let's say 12 hours, I may find something that looks like a new post & thread, I click on it, just to discover that I have already read it. It's a reply from you, where you have changed the subject, thus there is no "Re:" in front of the subject.

    When reading threads in Flat Mode I rarely read the subject line of individual posts, since it is the discussion and the thread that's interesting; so for me changing a subject line are for the very rare occasions when adding more information to a first post, correcting an error, or when a thread diverges to something else etc., not needed for everyday use. That's why I don't change a subject line when replying to an email, it gets hard to follow.

    Just some thoughts, and a question.

    Why put a subject line on your post?

    I know there's lots of options for viewing posts, but I'm not familiar with the one you use, Argus. When I view the topics, I see the original subject and all the replies beneath. Everything posted since my last visit has a different color so it's easy to spot the new posts. Unfortunately, unless the subject of the new post is something other than "Re: How do I exit a frozen application?" I have no idea what information the reply is offering. However, when the posters put a subject on their replies, I can see at a glance what they're saying and can judge whether or not I should open the whole thread. So, if someone writes the subject "Try Alt+F4" I know immediately what they're posting about and won't need to open the thread, but when someone posts the subject of their reply with "Use progcmd.exe" I'll be interested and open the thread.

    Some forum software does not allow you to enter a subject for the post, everything is linear from that point on. Some allow you to change the subject but maintain the linear view, which makes it kinda pointless. Having spent years on usenet news, I've come to appreciate properly threaded postings and wish someone had a browser based system that worked as well.

    Re: Why put a subject line on your post?

    So what does the subject line: Ooooh Boy , offer that will make me want to open it immediately or what does it say about MP3 Edits, etc.?

    I think it would be best to stick to the original subject line.

    If you have something new to add, make a new thread. <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>

    I agree with Viking as "Ooooh Boy" meant nothing to me!

    A perfectly crumulent explanation

    I knew that was going to come up, but I forgot to explain. The original title of the post was "You're boned" but I thought someone might misconstrue the famous Bender quote and the post would be deleted.

    Re: A perfectly crumulent explanation

    I believe he was referring to the "original title" that he intended to use when he changed the original title that the Original Poster felt was appropriate.

    Leaving the original poster's title alone and simply adding one's comment to the thread is tried and true and needs no behavior modification or study.

    Re: Why put a subject line on your post?

    I don't know if there are so many options to view posts; Flat Mode or Threaded Mode. At this point I can't remember what's the default setting when becoming a new user/member of the Lounge. I may have changed to Flat Mode.

    Anyhow, it's not my main argument, even though I understand that a changed subject will be more clearly visible in Threaded Mode.

    The subject is the denominator for all posts that make a thread. Indeed over time it will happen that someone choose a subject title that has been used before, for a slightly different question (or even the same question if they don't search the Lounge, and find that it has already been dealt with). But most of the time, posts with the same subject are dealing, no surprise, with the same subject.

    It's only my opinion; but just because it's possible to change something, it's not necessary to change it.

    If I take your answer to the extreme, we don't have to write anything in our replies, we write the answer/reply in the subject line.

    Anyhow, now I know why, I have seen it for a while. And as I said, even if the post is a reply, the changed subject will make it look like a new post, the start of a new thread, in search results etc.

    Re: Why put a subject line on your post?

    Unfortunate choice of attachment for a family-friendly forum. Removed by HansV

    I'm not sure why anyone is upset by this fairly common approach to discussions unless something peculiar happens when viewing the forum with different options selected. For the record, I'm viewing the forums showing all threads and flat mode and expanded threads.

    I recognize that the original post has the root subject and that subsequent posts should therefor relate to that subject (except now where we've REALLY gotten off track). As for searching problems, I'm not familiar enough with how the search function works, but it seems to me that if you search for "frozen application" you might find a post with the subject "How do I exit a frozen application?" Selecting that post will show you, say, a dozen replies to the post as opposed to a dozen hits all from the same thread.

    I can't access usenet news, but maybe the example attached might show the effective use of editing the subject line. You can see generally see what each person is writing and decide if you want to read the message. As for posting only to the subject. Yeah, a lot of people do that and post "(n/t)" or something similar if they post no message text.
