Re: [FORTNIGHTLY POEM] IF, by Rudyard Kipling - dl

Hi Michele,
I'm not certain, but I think the fortnightly record may have been The Disagreeable Man - WS Gilbert which had 26 entries. I think you may be on course to beat that. Here's hoping...

Re: Tech help needed with Replay.gain installation on Mac

I'm not really a mac person. I think some of the Audacity tutorials/wiki are out of date, which doesn't help.
Try looking in the folder: Applications/Audacity/plug-ins. I think that's the usual location for them.

Re: Submitting Recordings to Audible (through ACX)

MaryAnn,
You can download a simple but useful ACX Check plugin for Audacity from here. Note the caveats in the description. I don't think you'll have too much difficulty based on the quality of your audio - a version of your audio has already been accepted by Audible...

Re: Submitting Recordings to Audible (through ACX)

Hi MaryAnn, I think this is an excellent idea. I understand what PD means but I don't believe it means you can dishonestly claim attribution as Audioliterature are doing. And that ridiculous pitch-shifting makes your lovely voice sound awful. I was curious about what editions Audioliterature were cl...

May I claim Section 9 - Narrator for The Vampire Cat, please.
I've not done a narrator role before, but I read Kitty's helpful notes for Foon (I had similar questions), so I think I know what I'm doing...

Re: file specs are ok (checker, ubuntu, windows) but it has 129 kbps

schrm, I'm not convinced that we've established the cause of your problem yet. We're working on the assumption that [the linux version of] LAME 3.100 is the cause of the problem, and that reverting to a previous version of the LAME encoder will provide a workaround. But... the sections you submitted...

Re: file specs are ok (checker, ubuntu, windows) but it has 129 kbps

schrm, As I understand that program, the All Notes button shows you the errors for all files in the folder you selected. So it depends on what else is in that folder. Select each of your project files in turn (in the top grid) and check the errors that appear in the grid below with the File Info but...

Re: file specs are ok (checker, ubuntu, windows) but it has 129 kbps

I've looked at your file: ruebezahlbuch_05_hauptmann_128kb.mp3 using some other programs, and it looks fine. I'm not an LV Admin, so I'm not familiar with the cataloguing process, but I presume some piece of software at Archive.org is checking and rejecting the file??? I suspect there's nothing wron...

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

Mike, I don't call myself a 'skilled engineer' but I had a go at trying to remove the watermark. This is what I managed in about 10 or 15 minutes: - https://librivox.org/uploads/xx-nonproject/Benjamin_button_watermark_removal.mp3 It's not perfect, but the watermarking can certainly be reduced to the...
