Maybe Jac or someone else can help me with this issue with DCC-Studio I am having.
The software crashes when it starts writing the audio file to tape. Or playing it in Audio Editor.
This is what I am doing:
I have FLAC files from an album. I am doing the audioprocessing on Linux by the way, simply because that machine is a lot faster than the old WindowsMe machine I have which is running the DCC-Studio program and has the parallel port.
- First I extract the FLAC files to WAV.
$ flac -d babylon.flac
This gives me the WAV file.
- Then I use the (linux version of) mp2enc:
$ mp2enc -v 1 -b 384 -l 1 -r 48000 -o babylon.mp1 < babylon.wav
This leaves me with the MP1 file.
- I use (under wine) dccu.exe to create the LVL TRK and MPP.
$ wine dccu.exe babylon.mp1
After this I have:
Those 3 files I put in the c:/studio/audio/ directory of my WindowsME machine. When I open DCC-Studio - Audio Editor and then start playing the audiofile or write it to tape the program crashes with an ‘Assertion Violation’.
Alternative step 2:
I also tried the new version of mp2enc Jac uploaded 18 days ago and per the README I used this commandline in step 2 instead:
$ wine mp2enc.exe -o babylon.trk < babylon.wav
but then I get no MPP and no LVL, so I can not import the audio into DCC-Studio.
So what could be the problem?
-edit- Oh, to be clear, the software does work correctly and writes tapes using other audio files, like the ones I capture (dump) from a DCC cassette.
