Re: [FULL][CHILDREN] THE TOPAZ STORY BOOK by Ada and Eleanor Skinner, eds. - jo

Clipping cuts off the top of the largest peaks, essentially permanently removing some of the recorded sound. This can result in distortion. So yes, it's bad to do this. If you aren't able to amplify to the desired volume without clipping, then you most likely have some spikes in the recording that a...

Best to shut down other programs while using Audacity. I recommend exporting to flac or wav as a backup until your mp3 is marked PLOK, and not saving the audacity files at all. Both are lossless formats. I use wav files for work in progress, but flac files are smaller if you are short on space. Both...

Thanks. I probably should have posted it in the orphans thread, but I've been busy with other things and didn't get back to it. I appreciate you picking it up so we can get this one into the catalog. :) I really prefer not to have so many of these going at once.
