Re: Audiobook Narrating

That's wonderful. I'll be anxious to listen when I can free up the time. I know more about the submarines of the First World War than the Second and practically nothing of the Pacific Theater under the waves. I had a friend, however, who was transferred off the Indianapolis immediately before its la...

Michelangelo`s sonnets

I can`t believe these have not been done at LibriVox, even in the original Italian (unless my search function is not working well.) I think I`d like to try them one day and am wondering how one might best approach them. My ideal would be to find a native Italian speaker to read each sonnet, opening ...

Re: My lung disease

One option is to put a comment in your signature line that you WANT to be told about funny sounds in your recordings, over and above the usual PL comments. Lots of people speaking English as an additional language do this, because pronunciation correction is not usually part of standard PLing. Actu...

Re: [SOLO] Demian, The Story of Emil Sinclair's Youth, by Hermann Hesse - tg

All instances of 9 are fixt-uh. Thank you, Kevin for taking the time to help me sound more educated than I actually am-uh. :thumbs: (I might not have appreciated your generosity so much if there were 15 or 20 instances of the same word mispronounced.) Please note, I generally go online for pronunci...

Re: Headphones. What should I look for?

Kevin, I used Sennheiser HD201s, for a number of years, before upgrading to the HD280s. I see they are on clearance, at Guitar Center. https://www.guitarcenter.com/Sennheiser/HD-201-Pro-Closed-Back-Headphones.gc They are lightweight, over-ear, and I spent many an hour wearing them. ...to the point ...

silverquill, I can't tell you enough how appreciative I am of this opportunity to re-record these poems. I think they are better now.

Re: [SOLO] Demian, The Story of Emil Sinclair's Youth, by Hermann Hesse - tg

Section 9 is in the MW. Section 9 is quite good, though I feel I would be remiss if I did not mention the lovely bird call that one hears for a good length of time about 28:10. (I'm not certain how I should mark this.) Your naming is good but I will provide some help if you wish to do more with the...

Re: Headphones. What should I look for?

I have had that model for some years (probably 8-10 years) so that's why it is probably no longer available. I would think that any established makes at about $40-$80 would be OK. It also depends how good your headphone monitoring equipment is, and if you are just using a basic computer monitor out...
