Subject: (was pocketPCs)iPods for Bird Calls - portable
speakers & audio editing software
As previouly stated I use "Audacity" as an editing tool, it is a free
download, another is "Dexter" which is again free but I find not as user
friendly as "Audacity".
The main problem is that the bird CDs (and in most cases music CDs) are .CDA
format which both "Audacity" and "Dexter" will not open, From memory
"Audacity" will open .WAV, .AIFF (uncompressed Mac format), .MP3 and Ogg
Vorbis. You need to get to one of these to audit in "Audacity", I use
"Windows Media Player" to compress to .MP3 before editing.
