How to convert DSS files to .mp3 with ubuntu linux

I have an Olympus DM-20 which I use to record stuff from my amateur dramatics group, just recently I recorded a script read through of Thoroughly Modern Millie and needed to chop up the read-through by scene. Ubuntu Linux doesn’t support .dss files natively so I needed to convert them. A bit of googling lead me to believe that I’d need to convert it using a program under wine. Below is how I got it all to work, hopefully it will help someone!

Things you will need:

To Install:

  • Install wine from the repositories

sudo apt-get install wine

You should be able to Right Click and Open with Wine Windows Program Loader.

Using the same methodology as above right click and open with Wine Windoes Program Loader.

Install as above. Run the program, add the files, choose your output type and location and hit convert!

Bang, you’re done.

Information sourced from Google and the ubuntu forums I couldn’t initially get Swift working because I didn’t have the C++ libraries installed hence my repost!

Thoroughly Modern Millie

So I’m in my next musical! Thoroughly Modern Millie! Being in Just So was an amazing experience and so much fun that I thought I’d join in on the next couple of musicals and see how they go.

The first musical after Just So was an evening dedicated to popular movies through the decades, from silent movies through to Men In Black, called A Night at the Movies. Whilst the show was a bit bitty in places it was still great fun to be a part of.

Have you met Miss Jones?

Now we’re on to Thoroughly Modern Millie and I’m playing the part of ‘Jimmy Smith’, my first lead role, which I am so excited about! I’m already feeling nervous about it, tonight being our first rehearsal, that’s if I can get there with all this snow!

I had a really weird dream about it last night in fact. I dreamt I was performing with Barnstormers and that we were due to perform a piece that I had no recollection of rehearsing. Very Scary!

Anyway here’s to Thoroughly Modern Millie, I’m sure it’ll be a blast!

Just So Life Musicals

It's been a busy couple of months…

So, it’s been a very busy couple of months for me. I’ve auditioned for a musical with the am-dram group, Barnstormers, for a part in their latest production, Just So. Just So is based on the Rudyard Kipling Just So stories, how the elephant got it’s trunk, how the leopard got his spots etc. Rehearsals have taken up every Thursday and Friday since January 2nd, not that I’m complaining, it’s a lot of fun!

I, initially, was cast as the crocodile, a nice little part with his own song and I would have got to play as the baddie! However, due to some members of the cast not being able to make the performance dates, I got recast as the Leopard, a much bigger part with dialogue lines and a couple of songs!

I found it hard initially getting into the mentality of a Leopard, how he would walk and talk, but bit by bit, it came. I’m now really happy with my Leopard and am having a great deal of fun in rehearsals portraying him. I can’t wait for the actual shows!

If you want to come and see how it turns out, the details are available here.
