Either i`m stupid, or this is just stupid?
So yeah hey again :) i`ve made my own track right now, a remix witch i got in a complete audio file so its hardly a remix at all :(


I have problems to play it when i`m exporting it to a wav file, what do i do? i seriously need some help because i have been struggling... I tried to convert the exact same file that i exported to an MP3 file, but i can`t hear anything from the windows player.

I open it, then it says "Error occurred"

I want it on youtube but youtube don`t for some reason support the files so i need to convert it, but when i have a wav or a MP3 file it shud be uploadable, but why upload it when it doesent have ANY sound in it, its so frustating.

Please help :,(

IDK what went wrong but here´s a free audio editor which let´s you convert wave files to mp3.
And here´s a description how to convert
Hope this will help you.

check to see what bit rate you have exported at. 24bit is great for higher quality (more dynamic range), but if it's for Youtube / MP3s etc then on exporting the audio select 16bit instead of 24bit. This will reduce the dynamic range to 96dB (same as CDs) - also set sample rate as 44100hz. Again standard CD sample / bit rates

Post back if this fixes

Lambo uhm, 16 bit and 44100hz is already standard when i try to export it... but thanks for atleast trying to help :)... im gonna try the suggestion i got from electricfusion :D!

Uhm the thing is this, i exported it to a wave file, and i converted it to a MP3 file, but when i press it its no sound :,( i dont know what to do.

What size (KB, MB) is the .wav file that you exported from Reason and what size is the converted mp3 file?

um... here is a silly question.... does the wave file play ok ?

bjabsen 2012-12-11 08:29

It doesen`t even play :S... i simply export a file without the song in it, it so frustating. :/

The first things I would look at are:

1) Have I exported a loop instead of a song? Possibly a loop where the right and left indicators are set right on top of each other?

2) Related: Is my end marker actually at the end of the song, and not mistakenly dragged to the very beginning?

3) Am I trying to export to a filename with unusual or non-standard characters?

4) Am I actually giving Reason enough time to complete writing the file? Am I sure I'm not interrupting or interfering with the writing before it's done?

5) Do I have enough space on my hard drive to write the file? Am I sure my destination disc isn't write-protected, somehow?

6) Is my mixer, in fact, connected to the proper Reason outs to enable disc writing?
