Default MSG Show 2008 Audio

Has there ever been a soundboard quality MP3 of this show? I ripped the audio from the DVD but it sounds like crap. I'd love to have this show with good sounding quality.

Then the way/settings you've used to rip it has been crap. You can have it in the quality it is on the DVD when extracting the audio.

I posted a few tips on this thread here;

https://drycounty.com/jovitalk/bon-j...ty-mp3-t70336/

-Get DVD Audio Extractor. (http://www.dvdae.com/)
-Rip to WAV first, keeping settings (such as sample rate) "same as source" anywhere possible.
-Convert to MP3 at 320kbps (I use dBpoweramp for this personally (https://www.dbpoweramp.com/)) which pretty much preserves DVD Audio quality
-Delete original WAV files if you want
-Job done

Sometimes the volume varies on many DVD's but that can be fixed very quickly with MP3Gain (http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/) which doesn't require any re-encoding or loss of quality. It just boosts the volume on your existing mp3s and any changes can be undone.
Or if you use Audacity (https://www.audacityteam.org/), it has an "Amplify" option which does basically the same thing.

Very well written!

But, if I remember correctly, DVD Audio Extractor lets you choose conversion to mp3 directly, so you can skip that wav conversion step.

And for volume gain, Mp3 Gain is really the easiest solution and much faster than doing that in Audacity.

The only problem with MP3 gain is, if there is something driving the audio level high such as a clap, it will use that as the highest indicator... When you do it manually, you can work around that.

Thank you very much.

I know it does, but I seem to remember about 12 years ago when I first started doing this that converting straight from DVD to MP3 didn’t give very good results. Sounding rather watery and compressed from what I remember. It’s probably not an issue now with later versions but I seem to remember reading online at the time about converting to WAV first to preserve the quality before re-encoding. In fact, I seem to remember people suggesting to burn to Audio CD first the re-rip to MP3. I know it’s a bit more hassle doing this but it guarantees quality results. But once you’ve converted to MP3, you can do away with the WAVs.

Thats a good point but if you really want to, you can turn the “no clipping” option off but then you risk compressing the dynamics and ruining the listening experience.

Like you say, if you use a program like Audacity, you can work around it.
