I still use it, and never had to update it even after using it on Vista.

I've not noticed any artifacting either, so I'm afraid I'm not much help.

I too dig Audacity for the casual user. Easy to use, full of features, and free to boot.

Re: A rare Tuxedo Junction by Erskine Hawkins - need help

She is talking about a relatively up tempo version. The version you posted is decidedly not up tempo. It maybe Erskine, but it's certainly not the same (or as good imo) as the live version which has far more energy. I'm relatively certain that the version I mentioned (on "Holiday for Swing") is the...

Re: A rare Tuxedo Junction by Erskine Hawkins - need help

The one she's asking about. It's not the same length or tempo. How do you know the tempo or length of the version that Katie is talking about? :) The version posted there is slower, and just sounds like someone trying to emulate the live version we're talking about. At least, that's my opinion. Try...

A recording of "Minnie's In The Money" by Benny Goodman is found on the compilation Lindy Hop Jamboree Jumpin' Volume 6 . It sounds live, and I assume it was pulled from a movie, but there no liner notes sadly (major downside of this series!) to find the source of the recording. Might be the versio...

Re: A rare Tuxedo Junction by Erskine Hawkins - need help

There's a somewhat uptempo, reasonably well-recorded version of "Tuxedo Junction" where a man shouts, near the beginning, "Tux-edo!" I'm not sure about "uptempo" - the one I'm thinking of is about 140 bpm. But it definitely has that man shouting near the beginning. You can download it for free here...

This version is also on an album called "Holiday for Swing" which features live versions of the title track, and what I think is the version of Tuxedo Junction you're talking about. It's my favorite version of the song. Good tempo, pretty long, and full of energy. I love this album: http://wm04.allm...

wma files can be protected. There are ways around this, but they are not technically legal, nor easy.

What bitrate are your WMAs? It may be worth it to rerip everything at a higher rate, or as WAVs. Exactly. What he's referring to is that WMAs are "lossy" formats, meaning that they degrade the quality of the audio in the compression process. Re-compressing them into another lossy format like MP3 is...
