Re: [Horror/Weird Fiction]The Human Chord-Algernon Blackwood -ag

I decided that even, (especially) when the performance seems to be error-free I should still be able to find at least one edit that is needed. But I was hard-pressed to do so, and the only thing that I'd been able to find was the end of chapter thing. I see that you've noticed that already. Really g...

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/humanchord_11_blackwood_128kb.mp3 Here is my recording, length is 25:11 Thanks, sounds great! There are two edits that I would suggest. 19:03 "...aware of something astonishly sweet..." should be "astonishingly". 24:46 "...the minute, the colossal..." minute in ...

Re: [Horror/Weird Fiction]The Human Chord-Algernon Blackwood -ag

Thanks, here is the revised version. I noticed a few other gaps that I shortened up while I was at it. https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/humanchord_07_blackwood.mp3 OMG! I just realized I haven't done chapter five at all, but part five of chapter 1. I can't believe that I did that! I'll have it d...

Re: [Horror/Weird Fiction]The Human Chord-Algernon Blackwood -ag

Thanks, Amy! I am excited to start. I've gone through the FAQ but I still had a few questions.
  • Am I to proof-listen my own section?
    Is there anything I need to do concerning section 9/chapter 7, or is the listening done on that already?

Re: ~[Horror/Weird Fiction]The Human Chord-Algernon Blackwood -ag

I want to make sure I'm doing this right. I just have a couple of questions about the intro and end segments of the recording. For the intro, I say: "section 07 of The Human Chord. This is a Librivox rec. All Librivox ...public domain. For info or... Librivox.org." But then I say it again? "The Huma...

Re: Under The Flight Path

Wow. Thank you all for your willingness to help. It's been a bit of a hectic week and I feel like that guy that asks a question and then gets distracted by something shiny and isn't paying attention for the answer. But rest assured I'm listening to you guys. I will post an example within the next fe...

Re: Under The Flight Path

I feel like a complete neophyte, but I must admit that I don't know how to post an audio clip here in the forum. I've only posted my one minute test so far. Do I use the same process that was prescribed for that?

Under The Flight Path

I live in California, in the "High Desert." The location is pretty rural, but no matter what I do I can't get away from the low rumble caused by the planes that constantly fly overhead. On average if I record for 20 minutes, I've got to stop three times because of planes. I've been experimenting wit...

Re: Sixty Second Sample

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_truistknave.mp3 I recorded this with an M.X.L. 990 X.L.R. condenser microphone and a zoom h-5 portable digital recorder in a hole I dug in the back yard. (I live in the desert on multiple acre property.) I used Audacity on a P.C. running a 64-bit version of Wi...
