A: No, you cannot fully remove the voice from a track. Any program that promises to remove voices completely from a sound track will also remove any sound near the voice in the stereo spectrum.

Q 06: What if I want to record some online radio program? Can the recorder tool start recording automatically?

Q 07: There is a file that I can use Audio Recorder Editor Free to play it, but it is not working when I try to edit it. What could be the problem?

A: This is usually caused by the file's audio content using a codec that is not supported by the conversion module. Even though it plays properly in Audio Recorder Editor Free, the playback engine's supported codecs are different from that of the conversion module. You should ensure you're running the latest version of Audio Recorder Editor Free, if you're experiencing this problem, because we are always adding support for additional codecs as the software is updated.

Q 09: Can all CD-ROM drives rip CD to WAV, MP3, or WMA?

A: Although most current CD-ROM drives can convert digitally, only CD-ROM drives that support the Redbook audio format and have a reasonable level of seeking accuracy can convert tracks from CDs to disk in digital format. Many older CD-ROM drives and some new ones do not support this capability.

Q 10: How can I eliminate speed fluctuations from my output files?

A: Speed fluctuations are most often caused by the computer's processor not being able to keep up with the conversion process. Because Audio Recorder Editor Free performs all recording and encoding in one step (for maximum speed and quality), it demands more processing power than an encoder by itself. If you have limited processing power try first converting from CD to WAV format and then encoding to MP3 format with the audio converter tool of Audio Recorder Editor Free.
