Cool Edit Pro 2.0 On Windows 7...

    Question

  • Well, after a bit of monkeying around, I finally got this program to work on Windows 7.

    Now there's a problem though. When I record, sound only comes out 1 speaker. (The left.) When I put in headphones as well, I get the same result. Sound out the left headphone.

    Does anyone know or have an idea of how I can go about fixing this?

    Thanks for your time.

    Greatly appreciated.

  • If there is an updated version, upgrade, otherwise use the Windows sound recorder to import tones.

    If you have the Home Premium or better, the virtual XP mode can be used for legacy software that does not work on Windows 7 properly.

  • Hi,

    This might be a compatibility issue. See http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=Cool%20Edit%20Pro&v=Adobe&uid=2&pf=0&pi=1&c=Music%20%26%20MP3&sc=Other&os=64-bit.

    They are still working on it.

    You can try the latest version Cool Edit Pro 2.1,download free here: http://www.brothersoft.com/cool-edit-pro-16104.html

    Switch cables around and see if the problem moves to other channel.

    Do you mean when you record or playing the recorded data? Is it displaying two channels on the panel of Cool edit?

    Go to the control panel, click on the Sounds and Audio Devices icon. Click on the Audio tab, then in the Sound Recording default device and make sure the mic is selected. Run the troubleshooting in Windows 7: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\Hardware and Sound and tell us the report.

    Yeah, I have tried this. I have gone from 2.0 to 2.1, I have tried Adobe Audition 3.0 even and all seem to have the same problem. My voice only comes out the left speaker when I play stuff I recorded but for some reason the beat plays out both speakers.

  • Please tell us what monkeying around you did. I have failed to get Cool Edit to work on Windows 7 Home Premium using a new computer . Any suggestions would be appreciated

  • Most likely you will  have to open your mixer and select Properties; choose the Record properties and set your microphone input in the middle, so that it's balanced on left and right.

       By the way, if you learn to use the "noise removal/keep" control, you can do a great job of taking off voices and having a stereo result, simply by getting the noise sample to keep, while discarding the voice.  This even works on mono recording.  My oldest home-made karoke was one recorded by Kay Starr in 1948.

  • Most of these f*^king morons are idiots that do not know anything about stereo sound. If it is in Mono recording setup then you only have one wave of sound that is automatically send through the left naturally when recording the only way it would be both is if you was recording in stereo with a left and right microphone hooked up. If you are recording and only getting playback through the left then there might be a left/right speaker setting f&*ked.

  • On cool edit pro, after you record your voice double click your voice waveform, on the left tab click amplitude, go to channel mixer, and click full mix, it should put your voice on both sides.

  • I have a slightly different issue. While I do see the left channel only thing on Cool Edit Pro 2.1, and it essentially works on Win 7, I am having trouble recording to my Cool Edit Pro (old version) that I'm running on Windows XP Mode in the Windows Virtual PC option on Win Ultimate 7.

    It installed fine, and I can open a static .wav or .mp3 file, and ostensibly edit it any way I need to, but I cannot record to it via the Line In cord, from an external audio source, the same way I can into Cool Edit Pro 2.1.

    Can anyone offer some solutions or feedback into this problem?

    Thanks,

  • If all else fails, you can double click your wav file.

    Press:

    Ctrl + L

    Ctrl + A

    Ctrl + C

    Ctrl + R

    Ctrl + V

    OR SIMPLY

    Hold CTRL Then while holding, Press L,A,C,R,V

    :D you now have the same sounds on both speakers. LOL

    That was the shortest cut i can share.

  • Oh good grief, what HAVE they done to the recording mixer in Windows 7???????????

     

    I have been happily using Cool Edit Pro at home for years and Adobe Audition at work. However, just got a new laptop with Windows 7. Managed to get Cool Edit pro working,

     

    - BUT there is one MAJOR problem.

    When I wish to add vocals to music I cannot find a way to stop it recording what's playing back off existing tracks with the sound coming in through the line in. This has never been a problem before. I'd just go to the Windows mixer and select the line in as the recording source, play what I'd already recorded while recording the new sound on the next track.

    But this seems to be impossible now. How can that be so???? Arrrrrrggghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

  • I suggest you look at some 24 track professional programs as they are likely a better choice for you needs

  • There's nothing wrong with the program - Cool Edit Pro is as pro as it gets, never mind 24 track, it can do an unlimited number of tracks!!

    The problem is not with the program, it seems to be  with WINDOWS 7's sound mixing arrangements. There seems to be no way to select just the desired sound source for recording. Unbelievable.

  • Hi all, I am having issue trying to record sound using Cool Edit Pro 2.0 on my new  W7. Please help!!  below is the error I keep receiving. Thank you very much in advance

    Cannot find the mixer program ‘’sndvol32/r’’.

    (Tech note: an alternate mixwer applet may be specified in the registery.)

  • Wow, I am late to this and for that I am sorry, but I'll put it out there in case it helps you.

    I have used CEP 2.1 for years and years, still recording on an XP machine, which is absolutely fine by me, but it is a desktop and hard to move from place to place.  I recently installed the program on a new windows 7 laptop so I could record some small stuff on the move.  I don't know why people are having problems, it installed and works fine on Win 7!!?!?  Oh well, anyways....  yes, the mixer program is no longer there. What I had to do was goto START --> Control Panel ---> Sound (or something similar, maybe Audio Devices)

    From here make sure your External Mic Input (High def blah, blah) is set to default and check the properties, make sure it is working and turned on!

    Now back to Cool Edit, goto Options ---> Device Properties

    Under the Line In tab, move everything EXCEPT External Mic to the left "unused" box.

    Until I figured this out, it would only record from the laptop mic on thebuilt in web cam.  Now it works with any mic/mixer plugged into the microphone jack.

    I know I'm over a year late, but hope this helps.

    If you need further help just shoot me a message on youtube: www.youtube.com/TomAwesome39

    On an unrelated note, I upgraded from 2.0 to 2.1 on Windows 7 machine and am missing some menu items like "Generate" and "Effects" menus are completely empty... any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Tom
