Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Thanks, Larry… Yes, that makes perfect sense. So I guess I start reading the introductory material right below where it says “introduction“.… And then continue. And I end right at the end of the preface (and say, “end of preface“). And I just stop there, skipping the “acknowledgement “ part... yes?

Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Thank you for the FWIWs and for the encouragement, Larry! I'm definitely enjoying the experience, as well as learning a lot! :D Sure, I'd be happy to do the dedication and introduction... I just took my first look at them, though, and am not quite sure where I would start, where my "librivox" speech...

Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Hi Larry! I think Chapter 6 is ready for PL. 14m23.53s. Still working on the clicks and hums... but I think I've got breathing figured out... :) https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/oregoncountry_06_putnam_128kb.mp3. BTW, how do you typically do noise reduction? Just once, or more? Settings? Thanks!...

Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Hi Larry! Here is my newly trimmed Chapter 4: https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/oregoncountry_04_putnam_128kb.mp3. The file length is 21m25.100s. Thanks so much for all your help and encouragement! :D For some reason, I couldn't even see the new message in this thread until you pointed it out to ...

Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Dear Larry, Thanks for your suggestion-- that was indeed the problem. And now I know several more things that I didn't before! Thanks to pschempf, also, for straightening me out on the MC/BC thing. Acronyms are one of the banes of my existence... :wink: Anyway, here's my most recent effort on Chapte...

Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Dear Larry,
I was ready to post a long letter full of questions, along with my most recent efforts on Chapter 4, but I can't see either "silverquill" or "Larry" on the MC dropdown of the uploader. What am I missing?

Thank you,
Holly Masri :?

Re: OPEN [GROUP] In the Oregon Country by George Palmer Putnam - dl

Hello! I would like to read Chapter 4, "The Land of Many Leagues". This will only be the second recording I've made, so if I'm forgetting something important, please let me know. :)
Thank you,

Re: 1-Minute Test

Dear Jo, I very much appreciate your patience with me as I sort out how things work in this very new world! I did as you suggested last night, and played around with the gain on the Yeti (which I already love!) and the "mic" slider (recording volume) on Audacity. I can get plenty big waveforms... th...

Re: 1-Minute Test

Here is my second 1-minute test, done with my new Blue Yeti: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_hollymasri.mp3. I do think it sounds a lot better... though whether good enough, I will wait to hear. I have not tried noise reduction on it yet. I made sure it said 128 kbps constant bitrate when I ...

1-minute Test [OK]

Dear Librivoxians, Here is the link to my 1-minute test: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_hollymasri.mp3. I'm afraid I uploaded it at least twice before I figured out what I was doing... :oops: I'm using Audacity on a MacBook Pro (2013) with a FiFine USB mic. I've ordered a somewhat better mi...
