Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

That was the old days; life is too complicated for much breezing these days.

But I never abandon a project. Will resume ASAP.

Thanks for asking...

Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

Though I am puzzled. The wave form looks absolutely normal, and I can listen to my Audacity recording without adjusting the volume. I was mostly worried that the new microphone was produced a slight tinniness. So I will have to figure out how to address the problems you mention, since they don't sho...

Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

Though I do have a handy native-Korean-speaking fiancee, I don't have an equally handy tech-savvy one. So, having only learned the basic buttons to push to make these recordings, it will take me a little time to sort out the mic problems.

Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

I won't be separating the Preface from Chapter 01. Often this is another judgment call; out of the 110 or so books I've recorded for LibriVox, it might be fifty-fifty, not sure. I include prefaces with first chapters when the preface is too interesting or important to leave out but way too short to ...

Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

Thanks for your comments. I have to admit, my Korean fiancee got quite a chuckle out of your pronunciation remarks. "What is s/he talking about?" she chortled. "There are only two Korean place names in the whole section." I think she was exaggerating, but can't be sure because I didn't count... :D Y...

Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

This won't be my usual microphone arrangement. Please let me know if the sound quality is passable. Surprising how hard it is to find tech help here that would be so easy to locate in Seoul. There are computer shops, but they look like they're right out of Diagon Alley: tiny holes in the wall on imp...

Re: [HISTORY] F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea - availle

I'm in Jecheon in North Chungcheon-do. Seems very much out in the boonies and several decades into the past, because I've only lived in Seoul before. Surprising the difference....

Just ran into some technical difficulties. This project may go on hold for a while, frustratingly....

Re: F. A. McKenzie, The Tragedy of Korea

Thanks to you both, for DPLing and MCing. I was born and raised in Japan and am living in Korea at the moment, so this particular book is of timely interest to me, with mixed feelings of all kinds... It's been a while since I recorded a book, so I'll have to refresh my memory on all the right button...

Re: [PD in 2019] My Disillusionment in Russia by Emma Goldman

Just touching base after a long time, I see more replies to this thread than I realized there were. I appreciate all the input. Back when I posted the topic, 2019 seemed impossibly far away, a remote and hazy year of the distant future. Yet here it is. I think that it is literally (and I mean LITERA...
