Hey there Tommo

To get a new vine started post what you have under the New Vines topic in the Vineyard. Marye will then see it and start a new topic with the vine you have and people will sign up there for it.

Seeding the Vineyard

How does one start a new vine? I understand everything except how to post the thing.
When I click on "submit content" over on the left side there, I am only offered a chance to post fan photos, which I will do at some point, when I find the right shoebox...

Hal Stuman how to DL from Archive in Flac

for any GD AUD in Archive scroll down the page and you will see a big chart called 'Individual FIles'. There you can DL the show file by file in 4 formats including lossless FLAC. You will see that you can also DL a text file with the show details and if you wish a range of files to help check that your DL was flaw free.

It seems a pain to DL all the tracks one by one but if you use a Download Manager (such as Down'em'all for Firefox) you can set it to automatically DL all the tracks you want.

Then you can process the Flacs as you like!

All part of the service!

thecnology bummer ..

I have also downloaded from the archive`s seem my computer will only do this in mp3 mode , so 1 whole show comes in as diferent files for each song. i have tryed the nero and the audacity program and that just locked-up my computer ? very confusing. whap ever happened to good old cassett tapes ? sometimes thecnology can really suck.. the i-tunes kinda scares me because it wants to up-date on-line, well then would`nt apple know what you are doing ? no to sure if i want that ,,..i`ll figure it out eventually ,, i hope ..

re: MP3 files in archive.org

Regarding the MP3's and importing - I learned to avoid the MP3 and WMA formats when downloading, as I kept getting a "tin-can" sound to them. They are lossy compression formats. If you have the higher-quality files in lossless WAV, SHN, Flac, etc., it doesn't seem as bad to convert to MP3, especially MP3Pro (from Nero). I now either download only in the lssless format, or capture the files in WAV format via streaming audio. It's not as convenient, but makes a huge difference. You can download Taper's Little Helper for free and it will convert (decode) most of the lossless formats for you. Just search Google for it.

mp3 files in archive.org

When I download audience tapes from archive.org they are mp3s. I then import these to itunes and burn discs. Should I be importing them as mp3 since that is the format they already are in or should I convert to WAV? All vines and soundboards I usually get I always convert to WAV but they are not MP3. Any thoughts on this? I want the best quality possible.
