10:30 slight stumble (please remove opening s) - Pretty soon the vessel sailed. That was a cute story. Thank you for reading it. Thanks for pointing that out. It must have been when I stopped and trim some because I tripped over my words. I just didn't clip out all of the part that I replaced. I'm ...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

My recordings are turning out with the volume being too low. I have the microphone slider all the way to the right. I noticed that there is a Gain slider to the left of the waveform. It is set at the center. Should I nudge it a bit to the right? Will that help my volume?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Jr Classics vol6, Old Fashioned Tales by Various- jo

Thanks for the video link. That was helpful. Do you know if, on the first slider bar in the Audio Track section (under the "mute" and "solo" buttons) if I should move that slider to the right to increase my volume? I have made the changes to my audio file and reuploaded the file. The time is now 18:...

I have uploaded section 5. Since I'm new, I'll wait to hear about this before I record the second section I claimed.

Re: [GROUP] A Traveler from Altruria by William Dean Howells-ag

I have already completed my one-minute test. I'm thinking, to make sure I have everything set, I should start with a children's story with short chapters. So, put my request on hold for now. Once I get through a short chapter, I'll come back and request a chapter from this book.

Thanks!

Re: Test Recording

Thank you for mentioning this. There is a little toggle thing on the headphone cord. I’ve never used it so I don’t know what it’s for. But I’ll check into it and see if I can do anything to change the volume. Thanks!

Re: Test Recording

I didn’t touch the sliders to the left of the waveform. I’ve only adjusted the sliders at the top, and they are both on max. I can’t understand why the volume is not loud enough when the microphone is right next to my mouth, but it was loud enough when it was the WebCam that was picking me up and it...
