Re: ~OPEN [PLAY] Sir Thomas More by Anthony Munday & others

Please forgive my recent non-responsiveness. My wife died unexpectedly not long before our 43rd anniversary. So, the world stopped turning for a while. I'm getting going again, step by painful step, and I hope to complete my assignments soon. Thanks for understanding.

Re: ~OPEN: Sir Thomas More by Anthony Munday and others - al

I spoke in a sing-song voice that cracked a lot. I thought it gave it some character -- but I don't want distortion for technical reasons. I have a sibilant S, which I filtered out with judicious use of the Low Pass Filter -- which may have made the clarity sound a little slushy in places. Let me tr...

Re: ~OPEN: Sir Thomas More by Anthony Munday and others - al

Hi! http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/al/sirthomasmore_prologue__4.1.mp3 I really enjoyed doing this one. No Brazilian Portuguese. Also, it's not often that I get introduced by a trumpet fanfare. But, Hey, it's in the script ... so I put it in the recording. Please let me know if the recordin...

Re: ~OPEN: Sir Thomas More by Anthony Munday and others - al

Greetings! I believe I worked with you a while back on Verne’s “Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon”. I did 19-1, “Ancient History”. I would be delighted to read the P rologue in 4.1 of “Sir Thomas More”. Also, if it’s P ermissible, I could do the few lines for George Bett. If I may only do one or t...

File Size

Ugh !
At 128kps, my 12-minute MP3 is too large (11Mb) to be uploaded to my website -- so says my server. It does seem rather large.
What did I do wrong?

Section 19

Hi Scott ~ I'm not at all pleased with the quality of the recording that I'm making. Here are two 30-second test MP3 files: 1 -- no attempt at noise reduction http://www.DrSpeedbump.com/LibriVox/LibriTest803RAW.mp3 2 -- the best I've been able to to with all sorts of Audacious manipulation. http://w...

128kbps

Preferences are already set at 44100kHz & 32-bit float.

audacity

Please tell me how to set Audacity to record at 128kbps.
My test MP3 files are coming out 16kbps and it sounds like I'm talking in a sewer pipe. Thanks !
