      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!

          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.

            Thanks for the feedback. It sounds like it s a two-step process regardless (until Garageband 4 supports these files directly, I hope). Nice to know Audio

                I have my orginal email with my login and passcode... I can even call
                my number and get MY greeting and give myself a message. But, unless
                I can get into the damn control panel it seems that I am FUBAR. It is
                obvious that the number wasn't shut down, but when I try to login
                with the orginal login and password it tells me no dice...

                So, here goes nothing with the support on a free service! :|
