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

Hi, I would like to claim section 23, "The King of the Golden River part 1 by John Ruskin", if it is still available. I'm a new volunteer and this is my first recording, but I have already had my 1 minute test approved a while ago. I hope I'm doing the process for signing up and claiming a section ...

Re: Is the microphone on Apple EarPods good enough?

Thanks for the advice Anne. And just an update for anyone interested in the future. I did the test recording with the microphone on Apple EarPods and it worked out better than expected. The sound quality is OK although there's a lot of room for improvement. Judging from the feedback I got, I think i...

Re: My 1 minute test recording

Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it! I thought the audio was pretty good for EarPods too so I'll probably use them for a few recordings before investing in a better microphone. I actually forgot to save the original recording on Audacity :roll: , so I made a new one (it sounds pretty much the sam...

My 1 minute test recording [OK]

Hi, this is my one minute test recording. I used audacity on mac, and the microphone on Apple EarPods. I'm not sure about the quality of the microphone on Apple EarPods so I'd love to get some feedback on the quality of my audio. Thanks in advance!

Is the microphone on Apple EarPods good enough?

Hi! I'm a new volunteer here and also new to recording for audiobooks. I'm still figuring out what equipment and software to use, but I'd like to try using GarageBand, since I work on a macbook pro and it comes with GarageBand installed. I don't have a dedicated microphone for recording audio and wo...
