Re: One Minute Test - JSmolders

Hi there, thanks for the instructions. Just double checking, sample rate is 48000, not 44100? I ask because you mentioned the sample rate even when I already had it at 48000.

Re: One minute test

Hi there My first impressions are this: - you've successfully removed any background or environmental noise. Good work. - the recording sounds sightly buzzy to my ears. I'm not sure if this is from too much noise reduction (using the Audacity tool) or perhaps not too high of gain (when recording) or...

Re: One Minute Test

Hi there! Sounds like you've got some background/white noise there, which is probably the number 1 thing you'll want to address. 1) reduce any environmental noise when recording (especially things with fans or buzzers): fans, AC, neon bulbs, computers, clocks, etc. You can also pile pillows or mattr...

Re: One Minute Test

Sounded clear to me. Was that raw output or did you do noise reduction?

My only thought is that you should include some more dead space at the beginning and end (~3 seconds) so we can hear what your background noise levels are like.

Great voice, btw. Nice cadence.

Salutations from a Newbie

Hi everyone, I discovered LibriVox late last year when I wanted to read Ben Hur but didn't have the time to actually read it on paper. I googled for a free audiobook version and my world was forever changed. I'm excited about pitching in; I've got equipment and experience recording since I actually ...
