Re: MP3 files skipping

Imo the headphone plug probably isn't fully inserted. Try using a bit of force to get it to go all the way in. When the player is new the headphone jack is very tight. The Sandisk players play low bitrate files just fine. I have played 16kbps mp3 and 12 kbps wma files on my Clip+ using the original firmware without any issues.

Re: MP3 files skipping

To everyone here hello its nice to be here im zip.

i also have mp3s that skip. But i also am looking for answers to a problem i have, desperately. 

I have a new Pyle retro type all in one record players, that has an sd card slot for recording vinyl directly to the sd,in mp3 format.bit rate unknown.

so, after recording my records, the playback of the mp3s skip. Buy the records did not skip during recording. I noticed this problem in all my vinyl to mp3, recording stereos. Mostly Pyle brand does this..when i record vinyl directly to my Portable Tascam DR-05 skipping does not happen. How can i find the problem? Thank you guys so much!

Re: MP3 files skipping

I have experienced similar problems using an ION brand turntable with USB output to computer.

They have a community forum for users and ION techs to provide advice. (I could not find any Pyle Forums.)

Seems like the cheaper brands of turntables (ION and maybe Pyle) have poor tracking ability with LPs that were manufactured after the 1970's (narrower grooves).  

   ->Another idea for you is to use your Pyle to export to wav files and then convert to mp3 files using iTunes???

Re: MP3 files skipping

I know a long time went by, but did youj ever get an answer to your skipping problems? I've had the same problem listeining to some MP3s of old radio shows. Not all shows, just a few suddenly skip to the next episode/song in memory.

Re: MP3 files skipping

I did make contact with ion, they had no answer,except to tell me to use other types of thumb drives 2gb and smaller. It did help,but not totally. Untill the manufacturers and buyers demand better quality, problems will remain. My comments about this issue, on cheeply made turntables, was deleted by them. So i gave up. I have the ion profile pro,it records nicly with a 2 and 1 gb sd cards/ usb thumbdrives. But one i love it the American Audio TT record usb,direct to thumb drive turntable recorder,no pc needed to record high quality files. And would you belive its no longer avalable? What a ahame. Hey,goodluck!

Re: MP3 files skipping

[ Edited ]

What is the bit-rate of the mp3 files that cause the skipping problems?

Are the files encoded with constant or variable bit-rate?

 

ALSO, maybe your concerns about skipping could be related to a high "audio gain" setting for your recordings? Does your recording device and/ or software allow you to vary the audio gain? Maybe you could try a few variations and see how  this affects the final recording?
