I think I may have used Cdex wrong, though the speech was not too slow (a possible problem mentioned in Sir Dave's PocketScumm Manual). I have the CD version of Loom.
Sir Dave says
and this is where I have a problem. The version of Cdex I downloaded yesterday (cdex_170b2) doesn't have a 22050 Hz setting on the Encoder tab when Lame MP3 Encoder is selected. The lowest it goes is 32000. So I left it at 44100.Be sure the Encoder tab is selected at the top of the Settings screen. Now note beside 'Encoder' the description of the Lame MP3 Encoder. Leave all the settings as they are and make sure the 'On the fly MP3 Encoding' box is checked. (Note: you do have the option of encoding the MP3 files at 64 kbps rather than 128; the sound is still quite good and the files will take half the space which is a considerable space saving on memory cards! To do so, beside 'Bitrate Min' enter 64 instead of 128.) Now click on the Encoder drop-down arrow to the right and select 'Wave Output Encoder'. Change the 'Samples/sec' to 22050 Hz.
If I choose WAV Output Encoder, I do see a choice for 22050 Hz. But I don't understand what this is doing so I didn't choose it. Sir Dave specifically says to have Lame MP3 Encoder selected, but maybe the version I downloaded doesn't have it? Should I have chosen 22050 Hz from the WAV Output Encoder tab? Should I get an older version of Cdex?
