Re: Suggest a "Staff Pick" for archive.org

Sorry for disappearing - as Tricia said, I had an attack of "Real Life", but it has normalised for now, so let's start staff picking again! :thumbs: The staff has picked for June - there were so many books, especially non-fiction that I had a hard time to choose! We'll have to do this some time agai...

Re: File formats?

Another way to look at this is that we are using a file format that has stood the test of time and is still around while anything else may not even get off the ground for longer than a year or two.

So, let's stay on the safe side. :D

Re: Is there a way to slow down playback?

In Audacity, there's a green triangle somewhere on top, and to the right of it you can set "playback speed". If you click on the green triangle, it will play back according to the speed you set. Will change the pitch if you do too much.

Re: Catalog Problem

Mark, you can shorten the link in your signature to

to produce the same results.

Re: My 1 minute test

YOu sound quite tinny to me - that's usually the case with too much noise cleaning. A little bit of static is better than a distorted voice.

You should play with the noisecleaning a bit more and only do so much that your voice still sounds "normal". :D

Re: Project recoding?

Hi there and welcome! Umm... I don't think you are realising the magnitude of the task you have set yourself! :shock: We now have about 12.000 finished projects, with, say, on average 25 sections each. That's 300.000 files. If I estimate that each of these files has a runtime of 30 minutes, then we'...

Re: Catalogue Name Change

Changing the catalog name is not a problem at all.

the username is more tricky because of a reassignment of each and every section you have read to that new user name. Best avoided, really.

Let me know what you decide, I can only change the catalog name for you.
