Re: [OPEN] Ghost and Horror Story Collection Vol. 039 - rap

Thank you AE! It's a brilliant reading, expressive of Poe's darkness! Or maybe a dark reading, expressive of Poe's brilliance! :mrgreen: Either way, it's a great rendition!

Ah, well, I guess I'll submit The Tell-Tale Heart for the next Horror collection. These stories are so good! I can't wait to hear the next collection installment. :thumbs:

Re: A.E. Heckett 1-Minute Test

Okay, this should be my final 1 minute test, I hope! The particular version of Audacity I have reportedly has issues with ReplayGain.ny, so I found a work-around by installing MP3Gain through my command line and changing the mp3 volume from there. I would install a newer version of Audacity, but cur...

Re: A.E. Heckett 1-Minute Test

Great, I'll do my best to install it! It seems like a very useful plug-in. If I can't get it installed on my Linux machine (my main comp), I do have an old Windows 7 laptop I can try it on, lol. Thanks for the info!

Re: A.E. Heckett 1-Minute Test

:lol: Awesome, I'll upload the new (and hopefully final!) file tomorrow. I tried to get that Checker application to work on my Linux machine, but it had issues with installing the flash file included in the download. Honestly, I'm new to Linux, so I don't feel confident about messing with any of the...

Re: A.E. Heckett 1-Minute Test

My new mic finally arrived, and I've re-recorded my 1-minute test! I did do some light editing, noise reduction, that sort of thing; mainly to see if I could. If you need the raw file, I can certainly upload that as well :thumbs: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test2_aeheckett.mp3 Thanks for bein...

Re: [OPEN] Ghost and Horror Story Collection Vol. 038 - rap

Hi there! I'm brand new to LibriVox, and I'm very excited to start recording. I would absolutely love to contribute to your Spooky Collection! Would it be alright if I recorded Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart ? It's one of my favorites, and I would love for it to be my very first contribution...

Re: A.E. Heckett 1-Minute Test

Great, thanks for the feedback! I turned the volume of the mic up in my OS and in Audacity, and I tried both amplifying and normalizing the audio, but was unable to get the proper volume. I think it's my mic, which admittedly is actually for the Wii. It's not picking up my voice from a reasonable di...

Greetings from Washington State!

Hi everyone, my name is Ash, and I'm from the Pacific Northwest. I've been interested in trying my hand (voice??) at audiobook narration for years, but have never had the time or opportunity to give it a go. Well, now I've got all the time in the world! I first learned of LibriVox when I was googlin...
