I imported a 90 minute casette, joined the 2 sides, and now have an 86 minute file. I have an NEC-3500AG burner, but with staples media at least, it won’t overburn this 83 minutes. I know I can buy 90 minute cd-r’s, but even though they are compatible with my burner, I have heard that some players have difficulty playing them. In addition, I only need the disc for this one casette, and paying shipping for 1 cd is a waste of money, as no local place near me sells them (staples, compusa, radioshack, bestbuy, circuit city).
Anyway, the nature of the casette is speech, with long gaps of silence. A possible solution I have come up with is to remove the silence(in some parts, there is 5 seconds of silence). Now, this is very tedious, so I was wondering if anyone knew of a program where you could input a maximum db value for a period of time, and have it remove that part of the recording.
