Just tried opening a 1.5GB WAV file and ran out of memory. Any plans to update WaveShop to handle large files?
What version of Windows are you running, and is it 32-bit or 64-bit? In 64-bit Windows with at least 4GB of memory, you should not have this problem. See the warning in the requirements page, and Why do I see an "out of memory" error? in the FAQ.
may I chime in here?
This isn't a matter of the OS. This is a matter of the size of the file. If the file is big enough, even WaveShop x64 will get Windows to start a swapfile orgy.
I use (just "found" WaveShop this very saturday) WaveShop as a recording tool (BTW: very cool that you switch to RF64 on the fly; that's how it was meant to be). As I do very long recordings, i.e. 24h, which often leads to file sizes bigger than 20GB, loading the file into memory isn't a good idea at all.
So why not adding an option "Don't load file after end of recording"?
All the best and a very big thank you for your highly appreciated work!!!
It's a reasonable request but it will be a little while before I can get to it. Also the Record options page is full, a minor problem but still it takes time to deal with it. In the meantime I suggest the following workaround: if you use the "One-touch" activation type, and end your recording by exiting WaveShop (e.g via the app-closing X button in the upper right corner of the app frame), WaveShop will end the recording without attempting to open it.
It would be very helpful if you would create a ticket, but either way thanks for the suggestion.
PS what will you do with a 20GB recording?
I have already made the changes in the source. I put it in the RecordDlg beside the Sync playback checkbox. So for me this is fine.
Are you interested in the patch/source? It's just RecordDlg.cpp, WaveShop.rc and resource.h.
I test bit-perfectness. On the playing side a wave file with a certain pattern is played out and on the recording side the pattern is checcked (offline after the recording was finished).
That sounds fine, good thinking. Sure the source files would be helpful, could you put them somewhere public so I can download them? Thanks!
The latest version of WaveShop (1.0.10, released today) incorporates your Record dialog fix, though slightly modified: the checkbox is called "Open recording", i.e. the logic is positive instead of negative. Thanks for the suggestion!
