    MP3 cleaner

    On many of my mp3 I have strange little sounds (bip, bip, bip). I am looking for a program that could clean my files. I tried mp3Trim, but it cuts the file at the beginning or at the end only, that's no what i need. Could somebody help me? Does somebody else has the same problem?

    Yes, I've noticed this too, mainly on stuff I've downloaded and with certain players like NAD and Sonique, doesn't happen so often with WinAmp. But haven't found a way of fixing it yet.
    Anyone out there got any ideas?

    Once upon a time there was a program called "Uncook" that was supposed to take care of the problems you describe. I don't know if it's still around or not.

    No, Uncook is for files that were uploaded/downloaded incorrectly (e.g. in ASCII rather than binary mode). If you get a "cooked" file, it is usually distorted almost beyond recognition. Bakassi sounds as though he hears normal music with the "strange little sounds" among the music..

    You're perfectly right.
    I tried uncook; who knows? it may have worked, but it didn't.

    those click sounds you describe most likely come from a ripped cd that already contained many scratches. when the ripper tries to encode, it tries and fails to read the scratched sectors on the cd. even good cd's can give those click sounds if other programs are running while trying to rip. Cd-da extractor has a feature to "kill click sounds" on the ripped cd, and also has adjustments for how many sectors at a time are read when ripping.

    I had a similar problem. I listened to some of my old MP3s (I encode all my own so I know what I was doing) and occasionally I'll hear a little "hiccup" noise during playback. I tried encoding at 160kbps (I was using 128kbps before) and the noises seemed to go away. In fact, I encoded all my newer music at 160kbps and I haven't heard any strange noises yet...

    I encoded all my mp3 at 160 kbps too.
    But I do have the beeps. It's probaly because your recent mp3 were encoded from newer CDs...
    Thanks.
