Q: Can I pay through Paypal? top of page
A: Yes, you can pay through PayPal. To do that just click on Order Now and choose PayPal from the list of available options.

Q: Where do I enter my registration details? top of page
A: Start the program, click Settings, choose Register Audio Notes Recorder, type in your name and license (registration) code and click Register. When typing it just pay attention to type all 17 symbols without mistakes.

Q: I tried to enter my registration code but the program says it is not valid, what can I do? top of page
A: Check your order confirmation message to make sure you are trying with the correct code. It should have 17 symbols including two "-" and you have to type them all without mistakes. For example, quite common mistake is to type a letter "O" instead of correct cipher "0". You can avoid typing by using copy & paste.

Q: I lost everything when my computer crashed including the order confirmation message and the registration code for the program. Can you help? top of page
A: Send us the email address used for ordering and full name of the person who payed for the program exactly as entered in the ordering form and we will try to search our records.

Q: I purchased a single license for the program, can I install it on all my computers (home, office, laptop)? top of page
A: If you will be the only person to use the program that way then our license agreement allows you to install it on more than one computer.

Q: Audio Notes Recorder's icon is disappearing from the system tray. Why is that happening? I work on XP. top of page
A:

On Windows XP it is possible that the system tray icon is hidden by XP's option to hide inactive icons. In that case you can do the following:

  1. Right-click the taskbar, and then click Properties.
  2. On the Taskbar tab, under Notification area, select the Hide inactive icons check box.
  3. Click Customize.
  4. In the Name column, click the notification you want to change (that would be Audio Notes Recorder), in the Behavior column, click the behavior you want in the list (Always show), and then click OK.
  5. On the Taskbar tab, click Apply.

Q: I want to backup recorded cassette files, where should I look for them? top of page
A: You will recognize your digital cassette files by .XDC and analog by .XAC file extension. Default location where the program saves them is:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\XemiComputers\Audio Notes Recorder\My ANR Cassettes

Q: I tried to make a recording, but all I got was silence. Why? top of page
A: When you start recording the signal animation line on the program's front panel should show activity. If it stays flat then most likely nothing is recorded. To make a successful recording check volume controls for recording first. Click on Settings and choose Volume Controls – Recording, then make sure the correct sound source is selected and adjust its level if necessary.

If the recording goes ok, but you do not hear anything on playback, click Settings, choose Volume Controls – Playback and make sure Wave and Master outputs are not muted and adjust their levels if necessary.


Q: I am trying to record in VOR/SPY mode, but all I get is "pssst" on the program's front panel. top of page
A: First try to make a recording in normal (NORM) mode to make sure everything is ok with the sound source you want to record from. If you want to record in one of the other two modes and you are getting only "pssst" that means that the input signal is too low or does not exist at all so the program thinks there is nothing to record. You can try to increase the recording volume and experiment with different levels for "Suppress microphone noise level" option. To find that option click Settings, choose Options and select Recording tab. Please note that VOR/SPY mode might not work with all hardware configurations.

Q: I get a lot of static when audio cable is plugged into the computer. How do I remove the static, or what kind of audio cable should I use? top of page
A: Pay attention where you connect audio cables. External devices should go into Line In, and microphones into Mic only. During a recording shake cables a little bit to see if there will be any difference. Touch the jacks on both sides of the cable as loose connections might influence the signal quality. It is also possible that static comes from the device you are trying to connect your computer with. Another source of trouble could be interference with some magnetic field source. It could help if either the computer or the device is electrically "grounded". In the volume controls for recording always select only the source you will record from and unselect all the rest.

Q: Each time I want to start new recording there is that message "Cassette limit achieved. Recording aborted". What should I do? top of page
A: That message means that you have reached the recording limit for a single cassette file. You have two options to continue. One is to simply create new cassette file and the other is to increase the limit for existing cassette file.

To create a new cassette file click Eject, then Choose New Cassette File Sound Quality, click Create New Digital Cassete, type in some file name and click Save.

To increase the limit click Settings, click Options, choose Recording tab and move Cassette Size slider to the right. You can also type in some higher value for Max Cassette Size to get more space on the Cassette Size slider. However, please note that there is an absolute maximum of 2000MB for any cassette file.


Q: How can I specify my own drive/folder (such as "E:\My Documents\ANR Recordings") for saving cassette files? top of page
A: Just create a new cassette file in the folder of choice and that folder will be used as default for future cassette files as well. To create a new cassette file click Eject, then Choose New Cassette File Sound Quality, click Create New Digital Cassete, select a folder for it, type in some file name and click Save.

Q: What is the difference between analog and digital cassette files? top of page
A: Analog and digital represent two working modes of the program. In digital mode cassette file can contain several recorded messages and each new click on Record button creates a new message. On the other hand, in analog mode cassette file contains or represents only one message that you can overwrite or extend by clicking on Record button again.

Q: Attempted to export a recording to MP3, the following message shows up:" Conversion to MP3 is not possible because MP3 codec installed on this computer does not support requested sound quality parameters. Lower the quality and try again" top of page
A: Two things are possible:
  1. You have so called advanced version of the codec. That means you can not export 44KHz recordings because that sample rate is not supported by the codec. In that case you should choose a lower sampling rate for exporting (22KHz or 11KHz) and you can do that in the small dialog that appears just after you choose Export Message To MP3 option.
  2. You have the codec which is "decode" only. In that case we do not have a solution because encoding is not possible with your codec at all. You can try to use the other sound compression method available in the program and export your recordings to OGG format. It is similar to MP3 and as an open-standard does not require any additional codecs.

Q: Attempted to export a recording to MP3, the following message shows up: "No codecs installed! MP3 conversion is not possible!" top of page
A: That message means that you do not have Fraunhofer's MP3 codec on your computer so conversion to MP3 format is not possible, sorry. Unfortunately the codec is not available as a stand-alone product that you could download. Windows XP computers should have so called advanced version of the codec by default.

You can try to use the other sound compression method available in the program and export your recordings to OGG format. It is similar to MP3 and as an open-standard does not require any additional codecs.
