i know someone who has the latest Two Gallants album and wants to put in on his iTunes, but the PC won't recognise the CD as it is watermarked.
Is there anyone who knows how to get around this problem?
and yeah, they definitely sound a lot like SP

Yeah, put the Two Gallants CD in a CD player that has audio outputs, and run the outputs into your computer (Mac, PC, whatever) and use any shitty standard issue audio recording app to record the input.

I heard that Two Gallants covered all of Zeitgeist on that new album.

and p.s.

if you record the audio being played from your home stereo, it wont be watermarked, but will be crappy quality.

however sometimes you just REALLY want to hear the two gallants

agreed. lets really put our heads together guys and help this person out. I unfortunately have no knowledge of how this would work, but hearing some fresh two gallants would be pretty great, even if the quality is poor.

Can't you put it onto your computer in the same fashion that people used to put boot TAPES onto their computer... i.e. recording from the LINE-IN on your computer... from a LINE-OUT of a CD player/stereo/boombox/whatever

is there a reason this would not work?

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=recording&i=records-tapes

How do I record from vinyl records, cassette tapes, or minidiscs?
First, set Audacity to record in stereo.

Next, plug one end of a stereo cable into the “Line Out” or “Headphone” connector on your tape deck, minidisc player, or stereo system. Plug the other end into your computer’s “Line In” connector. If you do not have a cable that fits both of these connectors, you can find one at an electronics store.

Choose “Line In” as the input source on the Audacity toolbar, and press the Record button. While Audacity is recording, start playing your tape or disc. When you have captured the entire recording, press the Stop button.

Notes:

Do not plug stereo equipment into your computer’s “Microphone” port, which is designed for low-powered (“mic-level”) signals only. Use the “Line In” port instead.

Do not connect a turntable directly to your computer. The signal from a turntable is distorted; it must be corrected by passing it through a phono pre-amp or a receiver with a “phono” input.

thanks for the support. I was a little irritated at first but now I can see that some of you share my love for the new Two Gallants album.
I'm not very experienced with this stuff and I don't own a proper CD player i can connect with my PC, but I will ask some friends. Maybe I can come up with some news over the course of the weekend. for this album the gallants' record label seems to be like super-anal about leaking and stuff.
and lol at some people in this thread. seriously.

which makes it seem nearly impossible. It is within the audio itself and you would have to do some serious work I believe...crap

yeah he's not going to hear a high quality recording from a copy protected/watermarked disc, that is almost out of the question... but if he wants to hear the studio recording he will have to sacrifice some quality.

monkeyfritters
05-31-2007, 11:37 PM
my understanding is that there are digital watermarks and then ones that prevent any sort of analog transfer by actually showing up in the audio... that would make sense. otherwise it's too easy.

From the description in another thread of watermarking, yeah. It's embedded in the audio and inaudible to human ears. If it's new enough, there's probably no getting around it (for now.)

bardy
06-01-2007, 10:01 AM
I was thinking that with the quality drop imposed by bringing it in from the line-in port that the watermark would be removed


or garbeled enough to be unrecognizable.

It's easy to get around the watermarking. Just calculate the Fourier series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourier_series) for the waveform ;) With infinite time you'll get infinately close to the original signal.

what about recording the sound comming from speakers with a mic? if t hat deosn't mess up the subtle audio spectrum enough to get rid of a water mark, maybe try messing with an EQ all over the place constantly, live while recording with the mic. low background noise might help too.

it won't sound too good, but we might get to hear a few of the as yet unheard two gallants songs, 3 isn't it? worth a shot?

For what it's worth (not much), I found this while doing some 'research'. It looks like this person didn't get an answer and we may not either.

but like what if like the main problem isn't the watermark, but the fact that you can't copy the audio from the cd, because you don't have the cd player-line out-line in-pc setup? is there another way to get around a heavily protected audio cd?

you know.
I'm not very experienced with this stuff and I don't own a proper CD player i can connect with my PC, but I will ask some friends.
