Re: Testing a New Mic vs my Old Mic

Both are nice recordings, but I liked what I heard from your new mic when I added 6dB of bass. Kevin, Do you mean adding the same "6db of bass" to the older one didn't make it better at all? Only the newer one? Maria, Did you switch to the cardioid pattern on the Snowball? Read its manual, it's one...

Re: New Computer & New headset....

So I recently won a brand new computer (hp laptop 14 pc), ... But I was wondering if anyone else has one of these computers and if my techy friends here at LV have any tips for it. Also, I got a new headset to record with, which is pretty good so far. I'm planning to use it for youtube as well, and...

Re: Submitting a recording to Audible

Kevin, I don't think Peter is going to start recording non-PD stuff for Audible just yet. I think he was looking to cut off those who are going to "steal" Peter's LV recordings and put them on Audible. Those "publishers" usually change the narrator name and thus lie to Audible, who simply turn a bli...

Re: Submitting a recording to Audible

That does not at all explain the process if there is no "rights holder".

I suggest searching their FAQ.

Re: How do you EQ?

Noodle, What Peter wrote made me think that perhaps what you were trying to do was due to the quality of the speakers you were using. You fixed how your voice sounded there , then switched the speakers, and got a totally different result perhaps because the other set of speakers needed a different c...

Re: How do you EQ?

... right, and that's why we concentrate on delivery and content quality. A boring book or a book badly read can sound wonderful, clean, dry, and yet be boring or badly read. No studio equipment or brilliant sound engineering can save one from inability to engage the listener...

Re: How do you EQ?

Noodle, The graph you've shared (BTW, not a good idea to share graphics since it excludes visually impaired folks who rely on the messages to be read to them) is not a good EQ curve (based on my understanding of the purpose of EQ curve) since it is essentially focused around two specific frequencies...

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

Has anything changed about your setup from "a few hours ago"? Has the audio driver been changed in some OS update? Did you install a new version of Audacity? If it has not and you didn't, then the cause is not in Audacity. If you did change something, what was it? Can you roll it back and see if the...

Re: Help finding a microphone

Rachel, What you've found is a USB microphone , which connects to a USB port of your computer. (I am not sure you want the whole "scissor arm" to go with it, though. Eventually, maybe, if you have somewhere to mount it.) What paulbrianstewart says he has, is a condenser (similar to what you've found...
