I create .wav files on a Windows XP system, then copy them to my BuntuBox where I edit out the oopsies. For this, ReZound is perfect.

PROBLEM: I can't "aplay" the .wav or an .mp3 made from it with lame. "aplay" reports the message in the summary. Audacious produces no sound from the .wav and produces hideous static from the .mp3. (Thank you Microsoft.)

Currently I fix things with the command...

$ mplayer -vo null -vc dummy -ao \ $ pcm:waveheader:file="good.wav" "bad.wav"

If I do not "fix" the files with mplayer, the "badly formed" .wav files move through ReZound without incident and remain unplayable. My mplayer fix then restores order to include the ReZound edits.

Could not ReZound do the fixup? Audacity does it.

I would love to have one-stop service with ReZound. I REALLY prefer the MMI in ReZound. You've done it right.

I have attached a sample "bad" .wav file.

Thanks for listening. Keep on ReZounding.

    GrandBob,
    Have you tried a "save as" instead of just a 'save". I think "save as" might force rezound
    to rewrite the .wav header, even if you save as the exact same format.
