I'm using MusicMatch, getting really fast playback and ripping of MP3's. Fast means it is too fast on playback, sounds odd. The resulting MP3's are useless.

I dug in and found something called "DAE speed" in MusicMatch help. If one sets this to a slower setting it should work. The question is, where does one adjust DAE speed? I couldn't find it anywhere in the entire system. MusicMatch just has its useless settings page that does not even include DAE speed (which I discovered from a web search means "digital audio extraction" speed.)

Really puzzled now. :thumbsup:

Hi Natasha Kerensky

This is pretty advanced stuf but i managed to dig out this site

I took a read through and tried to follow the instructions but they are pretty hard to follow. The beginning bit i didn't understand:

The DAE settings are found by clicking the Advanced button on the Recorder Settings window.


Does this mean anything to you? If it does that site should be able to help, if it doesn't just say so and i'll look into it further!

David :thumbsup:

I tried that. I could find no place in MusicMatch that had anything to do with DAE speed. I thought it might be a function of the computer. All it had was this same old settings window, with its advanced recording settings. Nothing about extraction speeds.

You've found exactly the right thing tho; it's just that my version does not have those settings available. :thumbsup:

Perhaps the solution is an MP3 ripping program that's easier to use?

Thank you, Dave. :flowers: :trumpet:

Hi Natasha

Would about a great alternative such as iTunes for WIndows? I use it all the time. Take a look:

You can play/rip mp3's to CD's and lots of other functions :thumbsup:

I'll try that tomorrow.

I should mention that this problem is not just limited to MusicMatch; it does the same in any program playing a CD or ripping an MP3.

Windoze ME is the OS.
