Sampling movies

So yeah, I have decent movie input these days, in the form of the various repertoire rental boxes and the public library. So yeah, the usual cool vocal snippet keeps popping up, and the more I listen to sci-fi, the more I find awesome sound FX.

The thing is, I have really fucking hard time getting from the DVD to an audio file.

I use DVD decrypter to rip off to a .VOB, but for some reason it fucks up the tracks and the spanish audio ends up on the default track, so whenever I try to extract my vocal snippet with VLC, I end up with the spanish one. I found a workaround with MediaCoder, which lets me select which tracks to convert, but this program freaks me out; it never properly installed, and when I click on the installing .exe, it pops up the install wizard half of the time, and the actual program the other half.

VLC is an incredible media player, no problem with that, but the interface for the converter is awkward as fuck, I spend 20 minutes figuring out how to use it ever time I want to convert my fucking .vob to a wav.

So yeah, extracting a .wav from a dvd.

How do you do it? What programs do you use?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Sampling movies

I usually do this in 2 ways:
- Get my zoom h1 and place it in front of the telly if I want more grit;
- Connect the TV or DVD output to the soundcard input

Thank you for the advice, those are good ideas, but at the same time, they feel a bit wrong.

(also it's a minor detail but I'm still saving up my cash to buy either of them)

I have the zoom h1, sounds good on about anything that isn't too too heavy really...it has a clean sound to it though.

Re: Sampling movies

This is cool and all, but I would rather have a software solution.

(micing a monitor, however nonsensical a solution it is, is my plan F, if I can't find anything that pleases me)

And yeah, I used to have a pocket recorder, I used and abused then lost it, and it was awesome and I want another one.

Re: Sampling movies

Whats wrong with connecting your player to soundcard? Why is that such a bad idea, bechause your soundcard is shit?

This depends on the soundcard, but there is software that enables you to record "what you hear". On my old PC I had default Soundblaster Live soundcard, which had a Creative Recorder installed with the drivers, that was really good recorder for such stuff. There was no audible quality loss when recorded to wav.

Converting entire movie to wav sounds just.... stupid. Then again might be good idea if you want a bundle of effects and vocs from the movie.

Re: Sampling movies

Yup, as said above, either:

1. find it on youtube and use a youtube to audio site
2. Get hold of an audio-routing app (Audio Hijack, Soundflower etc...) and route the audio internally to 'record what you hear'.
3. Run cable from output to input and hit record
4. (Can't try this as not on 7, but who knows, maybe it's worth a shot...) [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Re: Sampling movies

youtube samples are the worst. awful shit quality. ESPECIALLY if you save that sample to a goddamn MP3. fuck.

open audacity, record stereo mix and turn off monitoring(so it doesnt' feedback), hit record and then play the file you want to sample. Easy shit.

Yup, meant to include that, but I wasn't sure. I can use the stereo out as an input on my desktop PC, but not my laptop PC or my Mac. It's so easy though, if it works on your system, [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

There are ways to route the main output of your computer into your DAW for recording...

It would depend on whether you're running on PC or MAC.

There's free software for MAC & PC that can route audio between programs, and in some cases you can set it up in Windows control panel sound settings.

So yeah, Ghyt's (thanks, btw) solution can't be used, and I don't really want to pay for Audio Cable...

So I'l be stuck with plugging an in in an out, or messing around with VLC conversion.

Fuck yeah.

You just can't imagine how much I want Ableton natively on Linux.

So yeah, I bought an audio card at last, and I spared a blue bill for two cheap-ass jumper cables and applied a derivative of Auto's technique, now look at my signal chain and have a chuckle.

Whatever audio app I want to sample -> out 3/4 -> in 3/4 -> Ableton -> out 1/2 -> monitors.

I can also just send all that stuff in out 1/2 if I don't feel like having Live open.
