      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
        messages now since I moved to my new server system and the old email
        it sent from isn't there anymore. :|

          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

              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.
