        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!

          Is there a good way to get back your password to setup your settings
          and such again? I need to move the e-mail to where it sends my

            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!

                Hey Derek,

                Unless you know that 4 digit pin...your pretty much hosed. I just went
                to the k7.net site http://voicemail.k7.net/ ...if you know your k7
                phone # and pin your golden..otherwise, you could try contacting k7
                support...but I suspect they don't have a lot of time for the
                freebies....but you never know.

                Good luck!

                  Subject: [podcasters] Question for Garageband + K7 users

                  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.
