This is going all over the place a little bit… but a few short answers that may help clear things up a little bit:
This means that we don’t have the AcoustID in our database/it hasn’t found a match.
Note that Lookup:
Uses your existing tags to find a match. If your files already have some existing tags, like track numbers and an album name, the best way to do it is to hit ‘cluster’, and then hit ‘lookup’ on the cluster/ the whole album. Scan:
Uses the actual audio data on the file, and tries to find the same audio data in our AcoustID database. If nobody’s submitted the data for that track, it’s not going to find it. Note that this method ignores all of your existing tags, making it much more likely that a song from an album is going to be put into a Various Artists release, and so on. But it’s very useful if you have no information for a track and need to find out what it is, or similar situations.[quote=“1uke, post:24, topic:63749”]
Would you be free to Skype or screen share with me and show me what this involved. If someone goes through this with me I am sure I can pick it up all very easily and fast.
I’d actually be keen to do this, as it’ll save everyone a lot of time!
You can find me by searching for aerozol1 or try Simon Hartman, with a picture of a kiwifruit. I’m on +12 time but it should work out.
I actually gave this a shot, and made a video, but I can’t get the quality as nice as the tutorial @caroline-g made…
If you can give me some pointers on what screen capture software and what export settings you used Caroline, then I’d be keen to give it another shot?
Let’s not even get started on my mic quality!
Still better than nothing… possibly
Of course! I used OBS (open source!) to record my screen (it recorded the entire screen, I later edited out the browser) https://obsproject.com/. After recording, it saved to my desktop as a .MOV file I believe. You can mess around with the settings inside OBS to change how it saves. I’d be happy to share my current settings with you if that’d help. After recording, I used iMovie to edit the tutorials.
All my videos were recorded on my MacBook Air! No special mic system.
