Re: USB Mic Suggestions

I'm so glad I found this thread! I have been using an intro level USB Insignia microphone from Best Buy. I'd like to move up and get something with less power-noise. (not sure that's the right term) Two guys at local stores recommended Blue Yeti and I see here that Audio-technica is also recommended...

Re: Background noise

Noise-cancelling microphones can do more harm to your recording than good, so it really depends. Upload a few seconds of your computer hum, and we'll see what we can do. If it's in one or two wavelengths, they should be easy to filter out using the Notch Filter. Upload it to the tests folder and po...

Re: Background noise

I appreciate the suggestions on this thread and have a subsequent question. I have been recording a few projects over the last few weeks and repeatedly need to use Noise Reduction in Audacity due simply to the hum of my desktop computer. As a result, I have wondered if a very quiet laptop would mini...

Jo and Sonia, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't tell you how much it means to have this process explained. It is very encouraging to benefit from your experience. Practice, practice, practice, I will!

Re: [FULL][CHILDREN] THE TOPAZ STORY BOOK by Ada and Eleanor Skinner, eds. - jo

I'm really struggling with volume. I think I'm done, but I can't get the dB level up where it should be without selecting "allow clipping". How bad is that really? What does clipping do? Project listener, please take a listen and let me know... https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/topazsto...

48 Volume is 83.3 dB. Should be 86-92dB.

T
T, I could use some help with adjusting the volume. Where, in Audacity, can I see the dB output? And do I need to increase the Playback Volume and resave?
Help appreciated! Lauren
