Try this: http://www.dors.de/razorlame/ It's a front-end (graphical interface) for LAME. It is pretty easy to use. 192 or 320 is just fine. And NO i'm not talking about 192 or 320kHz WAV files, I'm talking about MP3 resolutions (which are different). Here are the screen pictures: http://www.dors.de/...

how to calculate the BPM

http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/programs/SampleCalc/ or you can calculate it with a stopwatch and a calculator: 240 divided by the length of one bar (one measure from downbeat to downbeat) in seconds = BPM You can get accurate BPM's this way if you start and stop the stopwatch right at the start and end...

I'm really impressed with the drum sound quality. Every single drum sound has real strength and clarity. Did you really make all those one-shot drums with Reaktor, if not where did you get those coveted drums from?

Turn off the iTunes EQ settings and also go into the iTunes preferences/setttings and turn off the audio enhancer. I forget what it's called, but it's there.

I have an older desktop computer and both drives are only 5400 RPM. It was never a problem for making music. I never ran out of audio tracks. My typical mixes were multiple 24bit stereo tracks at 44.1kHz. Editing was a little bit slow, but then I added more RAM to the computer and it sped up a bit. ...

If you can't do data recovery, then it sounds like you have no other choice than to use the 320s. At least you have 320s and not 128s. If you're gonna work them over again, convert them to some high resolution wav, say 32 bit float. It probably won't make much difference, but at least you can be sur...

Bit of a long winded method, but you could watch the acapella through a spectral analyser and check what frequencies are occuring. From there you can work out which notes to play against it. I use FL8 and the Parametric EQ2 for this purpose. http://www.flstudio.com/htmlhelp/html/img_plug/plugin_fx_...

MultitrackStudio Pro Plus has a pitch to MIDI converter built into it. http://MultitrackStudio.com That's the program I use as my DAW, by the way.

I remember there are other programs that do it too. Although, many of them were written for Windows 98.

Do a keyword search for DubStep at http://ShoutCast.com

That will get you some internet radio stations. I suppose if you use headphones and a lower bitrate of transmission it won't be an issue at work.
