    Default Combining Digital Music

    What is the best way to "combine" 2 digital files?

    I have a client, day spa owner, that wants white noise played in the background, with wind chimes as an overlay. This will be a looped mp3 file, played in the massage area of the day spa.

    What programs could be used to create something like this? There is a good chance he will want to add or change compilations at different times, so having a program for this would probably be better than sending out for it every time.

    NOt sure what you're looking to spend. A basic stereo .wav editor like Wavelab or Soundforge can mix two channels.

    Adobe Audition is a more expensive piece of software but can mix multiple channels and probably give you a more professional end result. It would also give you the flexibility in the future to do other mixes with it.

    You can download Audacity for free.

    Combining 2 files in Audacity is as simple as dragging both files into the main screen and then saving as a new file. You can save as mp3 or FLAC. You will need the lame_enc.dll encoder (also a free download if you don't already have it) to be able to create a mp3.

    The software has a white noise generator that you can overlay with another file. You can adjust the level of each track before you save to a new file.

    I tried this program this morning, and it did what I need it to do for now:

    If he wants a higher quality sounding file, then he'll just have to pay more for it :)

    I will take a look at those suggestions, just in case I need something more.

    This is a cool program. Free and simple to use. I use Audacity for vinyl to CD transfers and get very good results.

    Didn't know about Audacity. I'll have to download it and give it a try.

    Next best thing to sliced bread.

    It's a great tool for converting analog to digital. You can get creative and probably do a lot more with it to.
