    from Youtube to MP3, brilliant

    OK - so I have been ignoring YouTube mostly as I have "assumed" that the content is mediocre. Wrong! There are, if I look hard enough, some very fine performances given AND in high definition.

    I have discoverd a website that will convert a YouTube movie's sound track to MP3 and I'm in heaven.

    Hope it's ok to share this link here? Mods delete if I'm being recalcitrant.

    You simply find your YouTube "movie" using your BROWSER (not your YouTube app) and then copy the URL thingumy and paste it into:

    http://2conv.com

    The reason I like THIS one is that it will handle movies of any length, most others have time limitations.

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    G'day Lars, I hope you find it useful, too!

    David, I am surprised that you class mp3 @ any bit rate "high definition" but if you are playing back via a PC, i Pad or mp3 player then it is adiquite also if you want an off line converter from video to mp3 file then "Any video converter" is a good tool it also converts to many formats is free and easy to use you can load any number of files, go to work and all is finished when you get home

    Bill, That would work perfectly as mp3 was made for just that sort of thing but mp3 through a HiFi set up ain't so good however I have d/l many YT videos converted to MPEG and then transferred to either a usb stick or a CD RW and watched on the TV and as my TV produces the worst sound imaginable the mp3 even as low as 192kbps works OK.

    Something I forgot to mention as well Bill is another free program called 'Audacity" which has more whistles and bells than 'Any video converter' but is a bit harder to use I am just working out how to download with it.

    I use Audacity to remove the snap crackle and pop from vinyl when transferring to CD, also handy when needing a 59 second "exerpt" to post here and for changing formats.

    The other good use I find for it is frequency shifting, some instrument samples only have 4 notes per octave, Audacity can shift up or down and save to get a full octave
    Cheers MIKE.

    The sample sets used by, for example, Grand Orgue take up quite a lot of megabytes, getting the samples or downloading or sending them can take quite a while, so instead of sending a sample of every note, they sometimes sample 4 notes of each octave and distribute the "condensed" sample set, the user then has to shift each of the sampled notes up and down a semitone at a time and saving the results to produce a full octave. If you start with 4 notes, you need to produce a further 8 notes; from C you get B and C#, D# > D & E, F# >F & G A>G# & A#.

    If you are downloading all the pipes of a large cathedral organ or a full orchestra's worth of samples, (for strings you would have bowed and plucked notes, brass muted and unmuted etc) that comes out at a heck of a lot of gigabytes. I've done it for a few instruments, flute, violin, tuba and others; they can be used in Grande Orgue instead of, or as well as, organ pipes. I have recorded some of John Stanley's sonatas using flute and harpsichord samples which works quite well.

    Get your orchestral samples here for free

    The samples are in sfz format which is text plus .wav no problems extracting the .wav for Audacity.

    I am still not with you Mike what are samples and why not use FLAC?
    In my simple world I download all music as FLAC which is at 1141kbps and a sample rate of 44.1kHz as per Redbook for CD although I am not a die hard lover of the Organ (sorry folks) I have quite a few Organ works at those specs and they all fit on a std CD 700MB, so I think we are on different pages.

    OK I just realised what you are on about,
    a virtual Pipe organ way outside of my interest sphere.

    A "sample set" for an organ would be a recording of every note of every pipe, each usually between 2 and 5 seconds duration. The VPO has a definition file written for a sample set, from which it can identify which note sample to "play" when a key is pressed or a MIDI signal received.

    Quite a few electronic keyboards now use sample sets insteads of tone generators.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Yes, using a MIDI connection - if your PC doesn't have a MIDI connector you can get MIDI to USB convertors. There are quite a few users that have gone so far as to build a PC into an older electronic organ and add a pedal board in place of the more common 12 pedals that some had.

    The other alternative, which I use, is to "play" it from a MIDI file either using Notation software or a MIDI editor or player programme. There are quite a few ways of generating the necessary MIDI files apart from downloading MIDI files, a programme to convert downloaded PDF scores to MIDI, these usually need further editing/cleaning up using notation software, or you can enter notes/compose using notation software which can output or save MIDI.

    Notation software enables you to enter notes, (copied or composed) either from a keyboard or with your mouse, onto onscreen pages of music staffs or to edit previously saved files, you can then print out, or save in one or more formats, MIDI, MusicXML, its own format, or output to a MIDI keyboard
    Cheers MIKE.
