Re: [ITALIANO] Le Rime di Dante - rap

Corrections for MW - two more recordings:

Section 11:
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/rime_011_alighieri_128kb.mp3
4:34

Section 68:
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/rime_068_alighieri_128kb.mp3
2:54

Section 68 is a completely new recording.

PL required for both readings.

Cheers

Re: File folders versus .AUP

I have never used the .aup format. Everything I record is exported and edited as a .wav file. I only convert to FLAC or MP3 as the final step. Rough guide to file sizes: wav - 10 mB per minute flac - 2 mB per minute MP3 at 128 kbs - 1 mB per minute MP3 at 64 kbs - 0.5 mB per minute. Hence an hour of...

Re: Hello All!

Hi Mia

I have checked your test recording.

Audio was clear and there was minimal background noise. All specifications were met.

You can go forth and record.

Re: USB Mic Suggestions

I started volunteering here using a Logitech headset. It wasn't very comfortable, especially after 45 minutes or an hour of recording. Plus, I never felt completely confident that it wasn't getting bad plosives, because you can never be quite sure that it's positioned right in the sweet spot. And t...

Re: USB Mic Suggestions

Hi Devorah It is always good if you really like the mic you use. I acquired a Samson GoMic (little brother of the Meteor) some years ago and used it for a few recordings. Sample attached: https://app.box.com/s/ffw17sl68htg8tkhqea5reium63be1pk However, in the inevitable search for a quieter microphon...

Re: USB Mic Suggestions

The FiFine is OK. However, for those who could afford it I would suggest something like the following: https://www.amazon.com/Marantz-Professional-MPM-1000U-Microphone-Podcasting/dp/B01GHOM67W/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1545173658&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=marantz+professional+mpm-1000+cardioid+conden...

Re: USB Mic Suggestions

The Samson Q1U is also a dynamic USB microphone: http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/microphones/usb-microphones/q1u/ Like many Samson microphones this unit is noisy and also is not noted for its durability. The Rode Podcaster is an excellent microphone - but may be a little expensive if you a...

Re: USB Mic Suggestions

Hello A good USB microphone will serve you well for any work you do for Librivox. If you are interested in the Blue Yeti, the model I would recommend is the Yeti Nano: https://www.amazon.com/Blue-Yeti-Premium-Recording-Streaming/dp/B07DTTGZ7M It is cheaper than the standard version, more compact and...

Thanks Tomas

All corrections have been completed except the last:
