Re: [poetry] Preludes of Poetry and Music by Irene Curtis -ck

I've uploaded poem #9: https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/preludes_9_curtis_128kb.mp3 Thanks for your recording. The only thing that really needs to be taken care of is the long silence at the end. We need only 5 seconds, and I see about 35 seconds. Not critical, but at about 0:27 there appears n...

Thank you for that!

Please remember to claim a section before getting started on it next time :)

Also, how long is the recording (mm.ss)? Please remember to always post the duration of a recording when you post a link so that i can update the magic window. Thank you!
My apologies! 02:40

Re: FULL [GROUP] The Doves' Nest and Other Stories - Katherine Mansfield - kit

Thanks for your help with my revised recording, Rob. I don't honestly know how or why it got shifted back to stereo after I used MP3gain. Or how my recording of silence ended up poppy. I think I'll take Sonia's advice and stick to really short poetry!

Re: FULL [GROUP] The Doves' Nest and Other Stories - Katherine Mansfield - kit

Here's "A Cup of Tea" (section 3). I checked the volume in Checker; it should be 92dB. Still perplexed by the enormous difference in volume in GarageBand, but I think I've learned enough to fix it and check it. Let me know how I did. Thanks so much for your patience! https://librivox.org/uploads/ki...

Re: GarageBand volume!!!!!!

I use Checker . After you install and open Checker, just drag the mp3 into Checker and click on the Information tab and it will tell you there. It's strange that the different GarageBand users are getting such different volumes. I wonder if it is dependent on the year of the Mac? Surely not. :hmm: ...

Re: OPEN Short Poetry Collection 188 - rap

Hello! I uploaded a file yesterday ("My Country"), which is a tad too loud. I have made adjustments to the volume, checked it, and re-uploaded it here:

All the other info is the same.

Thanks!

Hi there. :) I think you may have read this: Garage Band 10.3.2 Questions I'd love to figure out exactly how you fix it also, so we can help others who have the same issues. What microphone are you using? The Built-in Microphone? I'm using my Built-In Mic and my current settings are: System Prefere...
