Re: One-minute test

Hello Poet, Thank you for the test. It's great! :thumbs: Your accent is fine. The room has a bit of reverberation, but it's not a big deal. If you can find some way to reduce the echo, it might be a bit more worth your effort than getting a new mic. Regardless of that, you are ready for LibriVox ! A...

Re: 1Minute Test Arrowheadaussie

Hi Aussie, Thanks for the test. If you fix the stuff you need to fix, most of this is going to be OK with your new Samson. Mostly you'll just need to ensure that the volume is fine (and it is OK now :thumbs: ). What you need to fix is basically the settings. Once you set them, they should stick and ...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Hello jkrawczonek, Thanks for the test. It sounds like your microphone is capable of getting the nuances of your voice pretty well. You've uploaded the file to the right place, which is great. The file has the correct bitrate, which is also nice. :thumbs: There is a couple things about it that you w...

Re: One minute test - Redo

My honest opinion, Alex, is that your test is now perfect. You are ready for LibriVox . :thumbs: An admin will stop by this thread to mark it with an OK, and possibly to merge with the other thread, and you can already visit our "Readers Wanted" forums and sign up to as many projects as you feel rea...

You should be able to copy-paste mine: ♥♥♥. They are not done the way Marnee did it, they are just part of the character set, displayed large and red.

Re: 1 minute test

Hello Abia, Thanks for the test. It has all the right technical stuff. :thumbs: Very well read, nice voice. I suggest only one improvement - a pop filter. Your track is full of plosives. They happen because your microphone is too close and when you say 't'. 'f' or 'p', the air that escapes your mout...

Re: Introduction. Would love some tips!

Hello Gretchen, Welcome! I am not as busy as one might be with two little children, and besides, I am not a professional narrator... So take whatever I say here with a pinch of salt. Do your little ones ever sleep? If they do, you probably won't wake them by reading in another room (like a closet). ...

Re: One minute test

Alex, it's up to you whether you want to try to fix up the existing recording and upload the result, or record a new one, do with it all that is needed and upload that. To fix your track you need to (a) resample, (b) clean the noise -- this will require two passes, I am afraid, (c) export with corre...

Re: One Minute test

Wonderful result, Allison! :clap: You have now learned the most important tools you will use in your recordings. Well, at least you've tried using those tools and know what they can do. This is great! :thumbs: You are now ready for LibriVox . An admin will stop by to mark this thread with an OK, and...

Re: One minute test

Presuming that it's your test... First off, it's in MONO, and this is great! :thumbs: Now, other parts of it need to be changed a bit. When you record, make sure you have the rate of 44100 samples per second (yours is 48000). When you export the MP3 file, make sure you select constant bitrate mode, ...

Re: One minute test

Alex,

You need to post the link you get when the uploader finishes uploading your file, not a link to another thread... :)

Is this it: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_AlexMcKean.mp3 ?

I assume you don't need another take.
It's up to you whether you want anybody to take a listen and give you some feedback or advise on the ways to further improve your audio. For noise cleaning recommendations see our wiki (the link is at the top of any forum page).
