Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

....what software you're using to edit... Hi SkyRider -- I'm using Audacity, and would be happy to adjust the level and the silence at the end (it would not surprise me to have miscounted) Also, thanks for the kind words on the couplets, I did find it a somewhat challenging read, and am still findi...

Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

Hi endlessriver... I've just done a spot check of the issues raised and those look fine. Section 8 PL OK ! Huzzah! I've completed section 9. https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/arabiannightsvolume10_09_anonymous_128kb.mp3 length 9:36 I've tried to eyeball the amplification - is there a way to anal...

Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

Section 8: ... the bitrate needs changing. ... could you amplify it by around 5dB, please? Hi, I've uploaded with the above changes. I mistakenly sent the unchanged version at first, but I think I got it right the second time around..... again, section 08. https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/arabi...

Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

Hi, I've completed section 08. https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/arabiannightsvolume10_08_anonymous_128kb.mp3 length 08:31 I do see that I've mistakenly exported and uploaded at 48khz instead of the desired 44.1 - I can easily adjust the sample rate, but how should I handle the re-uploading? Asid...

Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

No probs. I'm afraid I noticed something important missing while you were away though - there's no night 1000! Fortunately, you're the only person to have recorded chapters after that so we don't need to chase large numbers of people to update their intro/outros with the correct section numbers. Al...

Hi, 1 minute test is up at https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=72876 Thanks for any advice! You could use noise reduction techniques but I had a try on your sample file and the noise frequencies are sufficiently close to your voice that I couldn't remove a lot of the noise without harmi...

Re: 1 minute test

Thanks for the kind words -- here's a noise removal treated version of the file, with silence at the beginning removed. I'm going to tweak my recording setup a bit to increase fidelity, but I think I can do so without introducing problems not present in this test. Let me know if I'd ought to record ...

Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

Hi, 1 minute test is up at https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=72876 Thanks for any advice! Better, if you can. is to avoid the noise in the first place. Are there any fans you could turn off? There's something there that sounds a bit like mains hum - is the power cable close to the mic...

Re: 1 minute test

Just realized I forgot to truncate the silence at the beginning of the recording. However, it may be useful to address the presence of audible swallowing. Are there particular techniques to prevent this from showing up on the recording, or is it something one generally needs to spot clean by reducin...

1 minute test [OK]

Hi, looking for feedback on my recording/setup. I'm recording using a Tascam DR-05 (not connected to my computer as I am finding the intermittent fan noise to be noticeable - plan to read from kindle away from PC), and exported with Audacity for Windows. This file is untouched aside from conversion ...

Re: [GROUP] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 10 - tg

I think "endlessriver" will be fine for the catalogue for now. Just looking ahead to some pronunciation questions -- am I interpreting these names more or less properly, and is there a pronunciation guide for the project? Just want to make sure I'm not way off . Abú al-Sa'ádát, -- would this be pron...
