Subject: Save As MP3 settings keep reverting to 96kbps

Hi all.

I am using SFMac Version 2.5.0 (Build 133) on OSX 10.10.3

I am in the process of recording about 1000 vinyl records to 320 MP3.

Every time I go to Save As on a new recording, SF remembers that my last save was mp3 format but keeps reverting back to 96kbps. Surely there is a way to set a default?

Thanks in advance.

Just a guess, but try saving your preferred render settings as a new template. SoundForge may remember the last template you used and load all the settings saved therein.

At the worst, you'd at least have a one-step process to select that template.

You might want to consider using Convrt to do this.

Get all of the files read/captured using Forge. Then launch Convrt, load in all of the files, set up the right MP3 settings, and let it run.

Thanks for your suggestions gents. But unfortunately the template idea did not work. You were right about the one-step process tho. Appreciated!

Peter, I was hoping to avoid this so I could do hundreds of rips in one go without losing all my storage space... However, when selecting WAV or AIFF, SF does remember the save settings so it's a little quicker on each save. I will do this for as many as possible and chuck them in CONVRT like you suggested.

Thanks again.

Yes, same here. What an POS they have foisted on us.
