some recordings on your computer and now want to put them on
a standard audio CD to play in a car or home stereo. Supposing
you have a CD-R or CD-RW drive, software for burning CDs and
blank recordable media we will tell you how to do that when
your recording is made with one of our programs.
Audio tracks you can find on a standard audio CD are files
with extension .CDA and most programs for burning CDs are
able to make them for you once you supply them with a certain
type of WAV files. So, the key to the whole thing is to get
those WAV files with 44KHz 16-bit stereo sound quality.
Claudio can make recordings directly in necessary quality.
You can recognize it on the program's front panel (stereo,
hi, 16-bit). All you have to do to prepare such recording
for burning on an audio CD is to export it to WAV format.
Click Export, choose Export Track to WAV option, do not change
sound quality parameters on the Export Options dialog and
save the file to some folder. When all WAV files you want
to put on an audio CD are ready, start your program for burning
CDs and follow its procedure for making audio CDs.
The situation is a little bit different with other three
sound recorders we have. While they can all make recordings
with 44KHz sampling rate, they are limited to 8-bit mono
sound. Therefore WAV files they produce through exporting
are not directly suitable for making audio CDs. On the other
hand, it is not hard at all to make the necessary conversion.
Sound Recorder that you got with Windows can do the trick.
Start it, go to File menu and Open a WAV file that should
be converted. Then choose Properties option from the File
menu, click Convert Now, leave the format to PCM, from the
list of Attributes choose 44.100 KHz; 16 bit; Stereo; 172
kb/sec and click Ok twice. Finally, choose Save option from
the File menu to complete the conversion. The file is now
ready for burning.
