Re: [SOLO] Clever Hans by Oskar Pfungst-Leni

Yeah, it has been a while, hasn't it...

I keep intending to record, but despite what I expected, lockdown actually makes it harder to record, as there are always noisy people around.

I promise I haven't forgotten about this.

Oh man, I really should have checked this sooner! I am so sorry this is late, it seems I was emailed about this, but managed to completely ignore this until now. Why did no-one try to contact me?

Re: [GROUP] Harper's Young People, Issue 21-mas

The '16' you saw was probably the maximum amount you could amplify without clipping. What you should have done is select the whole track, go to 'Amplify', type '12' in the 'Amplification' box, and click OK. I got the value 77.2 dB using Checker . Audacity doesn't have a way to measure volumes. At le...

Re: [GROUP] Harper's Young People, Issue 21-mas

Thank you for the feedback! I have made the changes and resubmitted the file. Only I could not see where to include the file length. Where could I do this? Thank you, Kristine You'd include it in the post when you post the link. Also, if you update a file (especially if you've changed the file name...

Re: [GROUP] Harper's Young People, Issue 21-mas

Here is section 4. https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/hyp021_4_various128kb.mp3 Hi Kristin, Here are your notes: The file name is wrong. It should be hyp021_04_various_128kb.mp3 The volume is far too low. You should be at about 89 dB, and your recording is at 77.2 dB. You need to amplify i...

Finally re-recorded: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cleverhans_04_pfungst_128kb.mp3 I'm using a different mike this time (a headset mike I was offered now I'm having to work from home), which has no background noises, and no mains hum, but has a nasty habit of picking up pops (I got rid of most t...

Just one problem:

The opening silence is too long. It should be "no more than 0.5 to 1 second", but yours is almost 1.5 seconds.

Re: [SOLO] Clever Hans by Oskar Pfungst-Leni

I just sat down, and spent over 70 minutes recording Section 4, and the editing was going well, until I noticed that there was some background static, which seemed to be getting worse and worse. Eventually it ended up like this: https://librivox.org/uploads/bloopers/ExtremeStatic.mp3 I don't think I...
