      For those mixing in Garageband, what are you doing with the wav files
      that come in from K7.net? Garageband chokes on it because it isn't
      in an 8 bit format. How do you get those voice messages into
      Garageband.

      Currently I am ripping the audio to mp3 with Audio Hijack Pro but
      that seems like an extra step I shouldn't have to take. Thanks in
      advance.

        Hi Kevin, ... You could use iTunes to convert them to AIFF or AAC. Then, you can import the files using the Media Browser in GB. Daniel

            Hey Kevin,

            I use QuickTime Pro to convert just about any audio into a 16 bit 44.1
            AIFF that Garageband loves to eat.

            QT Pro does cost $20 but I've found it to be the best money on
            software I've ever spent.

            I'm sure Audacity can convert the 8 bit wav into 16 bit wav or aiff though.

            I didn't have good luck with Audacity on the Mac so I bit the bullet
            and bought QT Pro.

            Enjoy!

                Kevin,

                There is a fairly easy way to convert those K7 wavs into GB-friendly
                AIFs using iTunes ... but I've found using Hijack Pro produces
                better-sounding results.

                You can convert those WAVs in iTunes by changing your "import to AIFF"
                settings to Custom, sample rate 16.000 kHz (I THINK...it's been a
                while), and then importing the converted AIFF into GB.

                However, I've found this produces scratchy, crappy audio. I prefer
                using Audio Hijack. I save the hijacked audio as a high-bit MP3, and
                import to GB. Yes, the step is a little time-consuming, but I've been
                very pleased with the results.

                  I actually use a much simpler technique; doesn't even involve audacity. Take your .wav
                  file, right click; open in iTunes. Once playing in iTunes, right click on the line entry,
                  choose convert to mp3; done.

                  Hope this helps!
