Re: 1 minute test

Volume is good, but there are other issues. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono. Your sample is 95kb, variable. When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, be sure to first check bit rate mode - Constant, then select 128kb from the pull-down menu, and check Force export to mono....

Re: 1-minute test

Hi Fern

Your test sounds very nice and meets LV specs, so you are good-to-go. I just want to note that your volume at 86.2db is barely above the minimum of 86. I suggest raising your volume 3 - 4 db going forward to stay in the range. No need to submit another test.

Happy narrating to you!

Re: LIBRIVOX NARRATOR WORKSHOP 2! [ZOOM, FEB 28]

Thank you for making this happen Mark, much appreciated, and gleaned! As a side note, I can't believe you omitted Simon Vance from your recommended narrator list :) Did you ever notice once you recorded your first bit of narration, you listen to audiobooks in a whole new light. Every book I listen ...

Re: 1 minute test

Hi there I reviewed your test sample, and I'm afraid you have some work to do. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Your test is 73kb variable bit rate and only 83.4db, much too low. In addition, your audio is severely distorted....

Re: 1 minute test

Hi Renee Your sample sounds very good, but there's a tech thing that needs correcting. Your sample is 103kb variable bit rate. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate. When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, be sure to first check bit rate mode - Constant, then select 128kb from the p...

Re: 1 minute test

Hi Ryan Sounds good, but there are a couple of tech things that need correcting. You test is 128kb variable bit rate, and the overall volume is 85.8db. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, b...

Section 1 PL Notes:
~2:08 "Socinianism" (but you got it right at ~18:40)
Of course it was that one.
