Re: Recording booth

I applaud your efforts. That's outstanding. :clap: I like your decision to use glass wool; it's so much more effective than foam, especially on the bass frequencies.

I imported and exported it as mp3 five extra times just to see what would happen, and here are the results. I love impromptu experiments motivated by curiosity! Obviously it'...

Re: Help with "hot mic"

I agree with Tricia - I think this is agressively compressed/limited rather than clipped. Either way it's unpleasant to listen to. Obviously there's no magic fix. This is just my quick attempt at a fix: - https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/Joyfull_-_sample_repair.mp3 I used 2 dynamics tools to repai...

Re: ~[OPEN] Shakespeare Monologues Collection Vol. 14 (multilingual)-ck

Hi Carolin,
May I claim the following, please:

- Richard II - Richard - No matter where; of comfort no man speak:
- Richard II - Gaunt - Methinks I am a prophet new inspired
- Richard III - Gloucester - Now is the winter of our discontent

Thanks,
-Ian

Re: Improve my own English understanding with LibriVox

Hi Paul, I'm sure that librivox can be very useful for people learning English and other languages. But as you say, it's hard to choose which text to read, and very few are intended specifically for language learners. Obviously I don't want to deter you from using librivox!

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Check your Windows Permissions for the microphone:
Windows Button | Settings (gear icon)
select Privacy
select Microphone from the list on the left
check that it says Microphone access for this device is on. If it's not, use the Change button.
