Usually when you are installing a program (or plug in) there is an option to "not" install the toolbar when you are in the install program wizard. If it doesn't have one I search for the program (or plug in) from a different source.

I would avoid that route because it involves many conversion steps that degrade the audio heavily. Youtube itself is already too much down conversion, apart from the other steps you need.



Thanks for the info Wouter79. I downloaded Lame and did an mp3 from my video file and resubmitted.

peter, you shouldn't need a plugin with Audacity, just a library. The Audacity website (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq_i18n?s=install&i=lame-mp3) points you to this download page for the Lame library: http://lame1.buanzo.com.ar/. Don't click on the big green "Download" button! (This may be where you ran into problems with other downloads -- usually this is an advertisement, and it downloads all kinds of junk.) Rather, look for a link called Lame_v3.99.3_for_Windows.exe (I'm guessing you're using Windows), or Lame_Library_v3.98.2_for_Audacity_on_OSX.dmg (if you are using a Mac).

Mar_red - see you're in with "Bring Him Home", another beautiful song from "Les Miserables" (I'm in with "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables") - you might want to note that the lyrics for both are by Alain Boublil and Herbert Kretzmer...looking forward to hearing your rendition of this gem!

I can't submit anything right now. Gee...am submitting to Ecco Fatto in the next week. I do have one piece of music. I mentioned to my teacher. I was so impressed with it. It's brilliance. My teacher decided it was wise to teach me it now. Even if it takes a year. She said: "If we have to. We'll work on it one bar at a time." I think she understands what motivation like this does to a person. So...if anyone can guess the song... I'll post it in the recital when I finish it...might take a year...
My changed title to it is: GAFGC.....the second G is an octave down

Well, i came back from a weeks holiday, had a horrendous day at work and then spent my first day back somehow scraping a performance out of the pollonaise in gm.... recorded on phone and now submitted. I felt so disheartened before, during and after my session today. However i now feel rather upbeat and ready to get back to serious practicing from tomorrow. So much more work is planned on the piece, but i promised i would pop my recital cherry and things will get better with time.

We'd have quite a performance if we compiled all the extraneous sound effects that have been recorded for recital pieces - the neighbor's lawnmower, the kids yelling, church bells, thunder, upstairs neighbors foorsteps laugh

I was going to submit Prelude in C major but for the sake of variety, I submitted an Aria instead. Can't wait to hear your interpretation.

Most considerate of you ElleC, I am glad you had a second piece to choose from. Perhaps we can hear your Prelude in C major in the piano bar soon?

I recorded mine - haven't listened to it yet. I will submit it tomorrow. Hopefully i can remember how to create the sound only file. I do recall having installed some program in my computer to do that. If I cannot remember I will submit the video version to piano bar.

Ugh... deadline is today?!? Somehow I had the 15th in my head as the deadline, not as the day of the recital.

Nope, it's 9:00 Eastern Daylight Time. That gives you, oh, about 9 hours to record and upload a decent take... nothing like a little pressure, huh? crazy

Finally got mine in a week before finals week. Luckily with the kind of finals I have (singing and playing), this constitutes studying, but I still have to get more focused on what I actually need to do. So I stayed up all night getting my video and app done at the last minute. God only knows what kind of hieroglyphics will appear on my entry form as I was so blurry-eyed by the time I submitted the application, I could barely see. I figured I'd still have plenty of time to modify it after I got home from school, though. Unfortunately, although I remember copying the confirmation number to do this, I can't recall ever actually pasting it anywhere and can't find it, so I may be stuck with what I've got, unless, that is, Monica once again is gracious enough to take pity on me and email it to me. Sorry, Monica. I'll understand if you don't have time and I apologize to everyone in advance for any gibberish they may be forced to look at in my description. smile

Sorry, confusing grammar. In Europe, the recital is tomorrow, not today. (Except that it's almost midnight now, but never mind that).
