One other thing I can do if I get a bit closer is Change Tempo by at most 3%. Not optimum, but that works if I have to.

Thanks, Todd

Re: Don't you love....

I am cataloging a project today that has been around for 8 years You realise now that you've made NASA's New Horizons spacecraft feel bad. After all, it took 9 whole years to go from Earth to Pluto. It's embarrassing for a space probe that it can't leave the Solar System in less than the time it ta...

Re: Don't you hate...

Don't you hate when, on page 154 of your solo, you read: "It was Mrs. Smith's clear, quiet voice that broke in upon the almost painful hush...." And you've given Mrs. Smith (an old lady) a creaky voice throughout the book? :shock: Sorry, Ms. Authoress - I will not redo the voice because you waited ...

Re: Interesting article on the reason for the worldwide use of “uh”, “uhm”, and other speech “slowdown” sounds

“I will try saying "like" instead. The only thing is, the L sound used to not be a problem, but now it's developed where it's a problem. But saying "like" instead does make sense- I never thought of that before - so thank you!” I don’t know if this makes sense, but would it be possible to combine t...

Re: Short Story Collection 79 - lt

A project of mine ("Sandy's Selection") recently stalled and got backed up for lack of progress. I thought that some of the half-dozen or so chapters that I did record might go well in the Short Story Collection. They've not been published elsewhere in LV because, as noted, that Sandy's Selection pr...

Interesting article on the reason for the worldwide use of “uh”, “uhm”, and other speech “slowdown” sounds

“Nouns Slow Down Our Speech” ———————————————— “"We discovered that in this diverse sample of languages, there is a robust tendency for slow-down effects before nouns as compared to verbs," explain Bickel and Seifart. "The reason is that nouns are more difficult to plan because they're usually only u...

Re: Use of Librivox material by other platforms

Perhaps the trick here is to use Librivox Jujutsu and turn the offenders' artistic transgressions to one's own advantage. Or, if you prefer ... “Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.” Is there anything to prevent a professional voice artist from promoting themselves...

The short-tempered soldier Captain Pouts for me please.

How come the only other ranks that wants to advertise his status with signs on his garden gate is the Private?
