Adjusting the Audio Files

(Updated 2017-10; BallroomDJ version 3.15.5)

The music manager and song editor can be used to make adjustments directly to the audio files.

These functions will not work on certain formats of audio files (.m4a, .wma, some others).

Before an adjustment is made, the original audio file is copied to the Original Files folder (see: Configuration: Folders). This folder must be configured and must exist before the adjustment functions can be used.

If the audio file being copied is already present in the original files folder, it will not be overwritten.

Music Manager

There are three functions:

Normalize Volume: Normalize volume will adjust the volume of the song to a normalized level.

Trim Silence: Trim silence will remove any silence from the beginning and end of the song.

Apply Adjustments: Apply adjustments will apply the song start, song end, maximum play time and speed adjustments to the audio file.

In the music manager, select the songs to be processed and then select the appropriate button. A status tab will be created showing the status of each song as it is processed.

In the song editor, any modifications to the song will be saved before processing.
