Bulk-extracting and combining audio from .mov to .mp3

If you aren't able to use an audio recording app on your iPad for whatever reason and need to resort to using the Camera app to record audio (long story), you will get a bunch of .MOV files.

So I wrote up a script that employs ffmpeg to extract just the audio from each file in a subdirectory, and then combine the separate audio files from that subdirectory into one audio file.

Script here: ExtractCombineMOVtoMP3.py

Fixing Windows iTunes playing only through speakers and not through headphones

If you notice in your Windows installation that iTunes audio is coming out of the speakers for iTunes even when you plug in headphones, try this tweak, which should fix the behavior to be the normal expected behavior (no headphones, play through speaker; headphones, play through headphones).

itunesaudio01 In iTunes, go to Preferences.

itunesaudio02 Click on the Playback tab.

itunesaudio03 Under Play audio using, select Direct Sound instead of Windows Audio Session.

Restart iTunes after saving your changes.

Big shout-out to my colleague Jerold Malone for finding this fix.

Logic Pro error: Audio file does not have sufficient access privileges. An overview cannot be saved.

If you're getting Audio file does not have sufficient access privileges. An overview cannot be saved. when opening up Logic Pro X projects, this is what you have to do:

logicproxfix01 Go to File > Project Settings > Assets.

logicproxfix02 Check all the boxes!

Save the project, close it, and then re-open it, and you shouldn't get those error messages any more.
