Here's how to use CoolEdit 2000 to work on MTU 24-bit SFs

Open CoolEdit 2000.

Use "Open File" command.

Choose your 24-bit SF.

Specify "32-bit (float)" in the resolution window.

Specify "Data formatted as "32-bit IEEE Float (0.24)" and "Offset input data by 0" in the Raw Data window. (This window should pop up by itself.) Make sure that the "Create .DAT header file on save" is NOT checked!

Voilā! You now have your 24-bit SF open in CoolEdit 2000 and can now use Syntrillium's lovely algorithms to manipulate your MTU files! (Just remember NOT to allow CoolEdit or any other program to modify the headers or you won't be able to use the files in Microeditor any longer.)

This procedure may work for other versions of Syntrillium software, too, but I have not tested it.

Keep in mind that MTU 24-bit SFs are industry-standard IEEE 32-bit floating-point files and can be opened in *many* other types of software as long as the file format is specified. I heartily recommend experimentation. Let us all know what you discover.

Chas.

Clawson,

When i open a SF in the CE2K the new file
has a gain boost of 6 dB. This happens with you too?

Hmmmm. No, it seems to be just fine for me. I'll check further in a little while when I have a chance to break from my current editing session.

Typically, the 24-bit file gets imported with no changes at all unless I make them. Make sure that your CoolEdit display isn't set to auto-maximize the waveform display or some such thing.

More later...

Chas.

Standard 32bit float files-

-----This is somwhat of a revelation, and would seem to me to mean that .SF 24 bit files will work in Nuendo....I think this might also mean the reverse, which is very important to me, i.e.- Nuendo 32 bit floating files might be editable in Meditor....This would almost certainly solve all multitrack problems that I have projected at the moment!...Man, that would be cool!

I don't have my dual Nuendo/Medit rig together yet, but might be able to experiment with a friend's Nuendo rig.

Do this strike you as a strong possibility Chas.?...Do you think I would have to do an file header manipulation?

I'm not sure whether there is a header problem
or not since I haven't had the chance yet to
work with a Nuendo system. However, CE2K allows
the addition or removal of header information
so there shouldn't be a big issue, I don't believe.

Like you, Jim, I hope that this method gives us
a workaround for Microeditor's multitrack
limitation. I'll withhold my enthusiasm until
I have a better idea of how that might work, though.

Ciao for now,

Chas.

If anyone (like in my case) has been using Cool Edit
Pro to try and work on SFs - see previous posts--
Syntrillium will apparently give you a serial number
for Cool Edit 2000 so you can have full features
of Cool 2000 free if you are a registered Cool Pro user.

Exclamation Help!

I have been using CE2K without problems, the +6dB (last reply) than i see in the CE2K go out when i return the SF to ME5.4 . In my first test i was
doing a mistake, you must use only "Save" and not "Save as..." in the CE2k and do not any processing in the header, so ME will recognize the SF.

Now i have a big problem! The ME donīt let me to create any segment!!
When i try to open a SF, appear a microeditor dll error like this:


"(213) Invalid end marker found in segment."


This happens for ALL MY SF files. I can not to work!


HELP!!

Are all of the segments that you are trying to create coming from the same SF?

You may have tried this already but I'll recommend it anyway since it has bailed me out of similar troubles in the past: shut down Microeditor, shut down Windows and do a COLD BOOT of your computer system. (It's amazing what a mess Windows can make sometimes.)

If you've already tried this to no effect, I'll have to get some more details before I can make any other suggestions. Perhaps Bryan will have seen your message before I have a chance to come back.

I'm sorry that I'm not more help right now but I'm kind of frazzled at the moment between the deadlines and the incredible horror of NYC and the Pentagon here in Washington.

Chas.

Dear Chas,

It is happening with all my sound files, including the new ones. I can to record but i canīt to create a new segment from these new ones too. The cold boot donīt fix it. Iīm thinking to re-install the Windows. If you have a
better idea...




p.s.: Iīm very affect by these facts in your land, for true, there arenīt
frontiers between our hearts.

Thanks,

Hessel
