‘Sup y’all,

I want to get an audio program that’s under $50. The only program I know about is DDClip LE.
http://www.softlab-nsk.com/ddclipro/download.html
It only holds eight tracks without audio effects. :? I have an XP and use WMM2 (I’ve probably said that a dillion times.) I want a program that can hold a lot of audio sounds, is $50 or under, and works with WMM2 and Windows XP.

Comments and advice would be most welcome. :)

Thanks,
-Dre

I want a program that when I open it, it can show my movie. -Then I can sycronize the sound to the exact spot on my animation. Audacity opens in a separate window so it’s pretty hard to add lots of sounds all falling into the correct spot in the animation. :?

That’s gonna be tough to find for less than $50. I’m pretty familiar with audio software, and I can’t think of anything that would work for you. Perhaps in the world of Linux you might find something.

Could you name a few programs for me? I have no clue what Linux is. :oops: I have a deadline and want to get started on making my movie, but I can’t find the right program. When I open Audacity, how can I move the sounds around so I can have them in sync with my animation? This has been the biggest question for me since I started brickfilming, so I want to get an answer. Is there any way to have more than one sound in WMM2? I remember David West mentioning something about it, but I’m not sure what he said. :( It’s wierd, ’cause this is the first time I’ve really been desperate to get an answer.

Then it’s probably best you don’t look there for an audio program.

Linux is another operating system, an alternative to Windows. It is developed as an open source, community effort and is free to install. But if you don’t know what it is now, I strongly suggest you don’t attempt installing it or working in it.

Do know of any other programs or get-arounds with Audacity or WMM2? This has got to get answered for my sake.

This is more than your budget, but for $100 Sony has their Vegas Movie Studio, which is a scaled down version of Vegas +DVD. I personally use Vegas to edit my films, and it’s a fantastic tool. I’ve never used the Movie Studio, so I don’t know what features it has or how comparable it is to Vegas.

This may actually prove to be the perfect movie editing software for brickfilmers, as it seems to have the flexibility and usability of Vegas, plus the ability to burn DVDs. It could be the thing people turn to after they’re done using their pirated versions of Premiere. If it’s anything like Vegas, it’ll totally pwn everything else in this price range (Pinnacle, Ulead, etc).

Darn, that sounds so cool, but I’m really not wanting to spend $100 bucks right now. :cry: Is there a demo? Revmen, do you know of any other program like that but for $50 or under? Or lets say for under $75?

You might want to look into some Magix products. They’ve evolved since the early Music Maker days.

I had no idea Music Creator had the ability to sync to video. That’s your program, IceMan. I can heartily recommend Cakewalk products. They’re usually quite easy to use and learn. I personally use Sonar, Cakewalk’s flagship product.

Wow, thanks for the help, Jeff! I looked at the site, and there’s lots of programs for around $40. Since I’m probably gonna end up buying this program that Revmen recommended, which one exactly were you talking about? I don’t want to get the wrong program.

Thanks a lot, Jeff.
:wink
And thanks, Revmen for the tip.

I found CakeWalk’s Music Creator 2 on their site. But it looks like it’s for making and recording music – I’m looking for a program that can hold a play different sounds and effects then put it in my animation, so my brickfilm will have more than just one sound at a time. :? Sorry, guys.
