Yeah, I know, I increased them both up for 23%.

Okay, so, I do:

File > Export > Now I have to pick on how I'll save the File. Randomly, it is put under WAV (Microsoft), which is for Windows, I use Linux.

Should I save them under MP3 Files?
Also, I do not see any option for me to be able to save in a different Quality/Definition.

What should I do and where can I find the changing, do you know?

I haven't used wavepad for quite some time, but i remember that when you save the file it will give you some several quality options(mhz and kbps) and to choose between mono/stereo.
Try using 320 kbps and stereo with mp3.
Also: video editors might ruin the quality as well so make sure you choose the best options there as well too.

I cannot use WavePad, it is just for Windows, I use Linux.
I used Audacity.

I saved it under "MP3 File", but the Quality is still really bad.

Know any other Editors like WavePad that are also accessable by Linux?

Thanks.

I see, anyhow, thanks. :)

I have saved it under MP3 Files, 320 kbps, Stereo.
But there still is that annoying scratching and low-quality. :/

Must be the bad Editor that ruins the sound... thanks again on helping!

I just have one more question since we are up on this topic, what is the difference between Stereo and Joint Stereo?

I'm not sure if Virtual DJ works on Linux, but if it does, you should use it since it gets a really good quality, however, it takes a while to record the song.

Are you still accepting help with Audacity? I'm quite the audiophile and use Audacity as my only editing tool, so I know it quite well.


First off, the guide in the first post for Audacity is outdated - it does not mention the "Change Speed" function under the 'Effect' menu. This will "nightcore" a song in a single step and will preserve quality better.

Secondly, when you are testing and adjusting how must you should speed up the song, be sure you undo and/or start from the beginning each time. This is because every edit you do is layered on top of the last edit, not re-done using the source audio, and therefore can also cause quality loss.


If THAT doesn't even help, try using lossless audio source in combination with my tips. Converting from lossy to lossy is not really something that should be done, especially since older lossy formats like MP3 were designed specifically for converting from lossless.

Yeah, I have figured all that out, thanks anyway.
As soon as I get into something interesting, I try everything out about it, no worries. :)

The issue was with the song, because the second song I Nightcored went smoothly.

There's also the "set rate" setting that darned near nobody knows (or cares) about that technically allows for lossless Nightcore edits. The difference is that instead of resampling during the encoding process, you resample at playback, and therefore can preserve more of the waveform if 96khz playback is supported.

I made a whole post about it here, but I was shot down on the basis of Nightcore listeners not caring about quality:

I'd like to experiment with my pitch and tempo while also adjusting the beat abit.
I am now testing some new programs such as PCDJ which I use to increase the pitch even more.

But anyways, it really is a nice tutorial :)
