Re: Friendly Contest: Guess the 2020 Project Total

You can always start recording more sections... :lol: I haven't recorded at all since I began working pretty much 7 days a week in June. But starting November 1st, one of my jobs enters its winter seasonal hiatus, and I am planning to make up lost time and do a ton of LibriVoxing with all my free t...

I'm in, too! Hoping for a record-breaking flood of projects hitting completion before the end of the year, I'll aim high and say 1348.

Re: [GRP] Insomnia Collection Vol. 5 - tg

Oh, goody! Time to bring on my Boring Voice again! I won't have free time to record anything until the end of October, but I'm posting intentions now, to bookmark this thread so I can find it then. Meanwhile, I'll be browsing around for something even more soporific than my entry in the last collect...

Re: [Group Song] "Away in a Manger" - Christmas Carol Collection 2020

I was thinking of launching the 2020 Christmas Carol Collection around November 1st. I'll save a spot for the choral selection! You may count on a warble from me, Twinkle -- but not for about a month yet, when I'll have more free time. It looks like it'll be interesting this year! Combining the two ...

Re: Zoom?

That was so much fun! The free-ranging conversation was a delight!
I hope I'm free to join in on some future zoom gatherings, if I'm not at work when they are scheduled.
(As to the camera question, I don't even have a camera. But it seems to work just fine with only a mic.)

Re: Headset/Mic recommendations

If you want to listen to samples of any mics you are considering, LibriVox has put together several "Microphone Showdowns", in which readers demonstrate the way different mics sound by reading short poems as tests.
