First of all, thank you for existing! I am basically computer illiterate, so, beat up on me with kindness. I have an ancient, music only, PC running Microsoft 2000. I use Soundforge 4.5, because an old friend of mine installed it when he built this relic. The issue I have is with one song that I saved as a wave file. The original song length is 3:07. The pitch on the original track was too slow, so I used the pitch bend feature in Soundforge. I arrived at the proper pitch and saved it. Doing that shortened the original (slower version of the song) by about 7 seconds. I went to burn a CD, including this particular song. Upon playing back the burned disc, this "pitch adjusted" song was still 3:07 long. It had about 7 seconds of dead air space at the end of the tune. Opening up the wave file, and playing it, there is NO, 7 second "dead air" shown at the end of the wave file track. My guess is that the wave file is really stored as a 3:07 long wave file, not as the "modified" 3:00 file, after the pitch adjustment was done. I see no way to alter this wave file, seeing that it looks, as plays back correctly. Being an analog guy, I can copy this song onto my half track reel to reel at 15 ips, and simply play it back "sped up" using the pitch control, lol. Thanks for considering my dilemma.
