HOW TO RECORD A NEW CUT
Once you have a filename, we’re ready to start creating our cut. The process of recording a new cut is pretty
simple. We create the cut by clicking on the Record button, fill in the cut’s information, set our levels, and start
the recording. The system, using a function called Auto Trim, will remove any silence from before and after the
cut.
Since we want to record a new cut, click
Record.
Clicking Record brings up the Create/Modify Cut dialog where we set in this cut’s properties.
Name/No. is the cut number of the file. Description is the title of the song or the customer who bought the
commercial. Client/Artist is who did the production…the artist who recorded the song, or the person who voiced
the commercial. Start and Kill Dates and Out Cue mean the same things in both environments.

HOW TO RE-RECORD A CUT
Sometimes it’s necessary to replace the audio of an existing file. You can replace the audio without having to
retype the file’s properties by using AudioVAULT’s Timed Record function.
Start the AVRPS screen, and Load and highlight the cut
Click the Cut button on the menu
Click the Timed Record button
Once you click the Timed Record button, you’ll be in Record Ready mode. Here, you can set your levels using the
peak meters.
When you’re ready to start recording, click Start. As audio feeds into the AudioVAULT, the cut’s waveform will
appear in the AVRPS screen.
When the audio is finished, click Stop. The AudioVAULT will
stop recording, auto-trim any silence off the beginning and end
of the cut, and instantly cues it up for playback.

HOW TO MODIFY A CUT
When working with cuts, there are two parts of the file you’ll work with: audio and properties. Audio is the
actual sound associated with the file. The properties of a cut include things like Sec Tone positions, the
description, and the start and end dates.

The How to Re-Record a Cut section covers how to modify the audio of a cut…this section will focus on
modifying the properties of a cut. First, start the AVRPS screen, and Load and highlight the cut.
Click the Cut button on the menu
Click the Modify button
Now we have full access to this cut’s properties. We
can modify any of these properties just by typing in
the new value. One we’ve made the changes, click
on the OK button, and your changes are saved. In
this example, we’ve modified the Description, added
an Out Cue and Client/Artist information, and
extended the Kill Date by a week.
As soon as hit OK, the changes will be saved with
this cut.

Operation
Execute AVRip by double clicking it’s icon in the AudioVAULT group.
Once the main dialog opens, insert the audio CD into the CD drive.
If the CD drive has “Autoplay” enabled another application will try to play the CD, if so, just cancel out of
“Autoplay” or close the program that opened to play the CD and switch to AVRip screen.
If AVRip does not automatically detect the CD track information, you can force it to
read the CD information. Just click on the File menu and select Refresh CD.
For some audio CDs the Album information dialog will show up so the user can select
the corresponding Album information that actually matches the CD, this because the
database is looking into has information on more than one album or no information
at all.
You can do a Muze database
lookup on the internet. If the PC
is not connected to the internet,
the Album lookup information
will be empty.
276
To do a Muze lookup just click on the Muze Number browse button. If the Album information is found, the
AlbumLookup dialog will show it. If wanted, either or both Album and Song Details can be shown, just by
selecting the corresponding checkbox.
Click Ok and the Album Info dialog will reflect all the information found including the Muze Number, with
possibly more than one Disc Number. Choose the Album Name that has the information you want to use.
Click OK to use the Track and Album information found. After this, AVRip will show the number of tracks
found, their length and their Title. The Artist information does not show on the main screen until the track is
copied. If you open the track information dialog, you can see all the information found that will be used during
the copy of each track.
277
Select the desired tracks to be extracted by clicking on the Track column check box.
If the track information or the audio format needs to be changed, open the track information by double clicking
on the desired track, and then edit the desired fields.
The Track Information screen has five configuration tabs:
General:
Has the AudioVAULT File header information, almost like you would see it in AVRPS.
Inventory:
Has the Source Disk number, Source track number and URL information. AudioVAULT can
use the Source Disk and Track number to create its file name if the Name Format is
configured to use them.
278
Once all tracks to be copied have the information and desired audio format selected the user can click OK. Back
in AVRip’s main screen the user can click
to start copying of the selected tracks into AudioVAULT.
The track being copied will have a Status of Copying, while a file that will be copied has a Status of Copy.
Once a track has been copied the Status column will show as Copied and its artist information will show on the
screen.
During the copy process you can see the Energy data on a separate window. Click on Copy menu and select
Show Energy.
The energy information can be shown in two modes: Linear and dB. The Top pane shows the track’s audio level
and the bottom pane shows gain adjustment information.
Once all tracks are copied you can insert a different audio CD and follow the same process again.
