FAQ -- Frequently Asked Questions top


Why do I sometimes hear drop-outs while recording?


Due to the fact that a USB device like the PhonoPreAmp iVinyl cannot perfectly be synchronized with your soundcard, it is possible that some drop-outs may occur from time to time. However, this has no influence on the recorded audio. The recorded file will not contain any drop-outs.


What audio formats are supported?


Only *.wav files (Windows PCM *.wav) which are red-book compatible can be loaded. That means that they have to be recorded wit 16 Bit resolution and 44.1kHz sampling rate. If you use the built-in recorder AlgoRec the generated *.wav files will automatically be red book compatible. The red-book standard is supported by all CD Burning programs.


What are *.awf files good for?


For every *.wav file loaded into Sound Rescue TerraTec Edition a corresponding *.awf file is automatically created if it doesn't already exist. This helps to speed up the waveform display enormously, because the *.awf file contains the graphical waveform data. To save disk space you can safely delete *.awf files.

Tips & Tricks top

Resetting the numeric peak hold values during the
recording process

The peak hold values can be reset at any time by clicking (or double-clicking) on the level meter. This way a exaggerated input recording level can be avoided. (This function is implemented since version 2.03 build 434.)

Recording 2 sides of a vinyl LP
When recording 2 sides of a vinyl LP, stop the recording with the pause button when the first side is finished. Turn over the LP and press the pause button again to resume the recording. This way you make sure you'll have the whole LP recorded into one wav file and are able to create a CD List for the whole LP.

Saving *.wav files
Please do not save your recordings in the installation directory of Sound Rescue TerraTec Edition but choose a different one e.g. My LPs, because the whole directory will be deleted during a deinstallation or a reinstallation.

Resetting the fader
1. The fader for bass/volume/treble can be reset to the middle position by double-clicking on them.
2. By double-clicking on the fader of the DeScratcher and the DeNoiser they can be set to 0.0 (turned off).
3. To omit the influence of all faders and settings check the box bypass. Then you'll be able to listen to the original audio material.
