Re: Suggestion: Add Producer Rolee

It’s interesting that I’m revisiting this discussion several years later, but I yet still mostly agree with myself. [*]Executive Producer role: a person committed to the mission of librivox. She should have good ears and a business sense and a solid relationship to our user base. Probably would be a...

Re: [RELIGION] Christ and His Friends - L.A. Banks - mtf

Hi, I haven’t forgotten about chapter 13, but work, my toddler, and other priorities have distracted me.

I did just get a new microphone, the Neat King Bee, which should sound awesome, and I hope to get the chapter read and uploaded soon. Sorry again for the delay.

Re: [1 Minute Test] Test Recording - Jordan Nash, Blue Encore 300, Zoom H6 [OK]

The chapter was recorded on the Zoom H6 and edited in Audition. I have a pretty solid A/V background, so I SHOULD know what I’m doing (but please correct my errors). Librivox seems to use a lot of non-standard tools, terminology, and technical standards. As I mentioned a few years ago, Librivox need...

Re: [GRP: RELIG] Christ and His Friends - L.A. Banks - mtf

Thanks, Brett! Lomond will be by to do your proof listen. I can go ahead and assign you 13 in the meantime. You don't have to wait for the official PL ok on 14 before you start on it. Whenever you're ready is fine. I do need to know the run time for chapter 14. We'll need it for cataloguing. My sin...

Re: [GRP: RELIG] Christ and His Friends - L.A. Banks - mtf

No problem. I'm in no rush here. :) Chapter 11 has been uploaded. https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/christandhisfriends_11_banks_128kbps.mp3 Thanks, Jordan. I've put it in the MW to be proof listened. It looks like the run time for this is 16:18. Is that right? That sounds about right to me....

Re: [1 Minute Test] Test Recording - Jordan Nash, Blue Encore 300, Zoom H6

Hi Devorah,

As I mentioned that sample is straight out of the recorder.

I’ll be editing in Adobe Audition and I am familiar with compression and normalization.

[1 Minute Test] Test Recording - Jordan Nash, Blue Encore 300, Zoom H6 [OK]

Here's a quick test recording, using the Blue Encore 300 on a boom stand with a pop filter into a Zoom H6 portable digital recorder, gain set to 4.5. The attached file is direct from the recorder, except for changing the name. The head and tail room tone is intentional and will be removed from submi...

Re: [GRP: RELIG] Christ and His Friends - L.A. Banks - mtf

Sure, I can do that. I’m an experienced video editor and confident in my technical skills so I shouldn’t have any issues. I've given you section 11. I hope you enjoy it! Hi, I'm sorry I haven't gotten this done yet. I haven't forgotten, but other things have gotten in the way. I also have an energe...

Re: [GRP: RELIG] Christ and His Friends - L.A. Banks - mtf

Greetings! I got a few mics in the mail today, and I'm eager to do some voiceover work. Please assign me a section and I'll try to get it done this week. If you like the results, you can assign me another section. :-) Mic list: AT2020, AT2021, Shure SM86; Blue Encore 300 arriving this week. I'll be ...

Re: Does everyone use Audacity?

I primarily use Goldwave. I use Sony Vegas Pro for my videos, so I might use it more for audio if I decide it works well enough.

Re: Suggestion: Add Producer Role

Thanks for the reply, Todd. I'm sorry about the impetuous new guy syndrome.

I admit that I'm mostly annoyed about the ReplayGain local standard (ReplayGain is a program designed around a single man's opinion), and strongly propose that we adopt the EBU R128 international standard instead.

Re: Suggestion: Add Producer Role

I admit that I'm mostly annoyed with the 89dB specification, which seems to refer to dB-SPL (volume relative to quiet), which isn't relevant as we have no idea how loud the listener's speakers are or what their noise floor is. We can't control the listener's environment. What I'm suggesting is that ...

Re: Send CDs to the Troops via AnySoldier.com

Just wondering if this idea died on the vine or if it was thriving some place else? (Actually looking for advice for giving CDs of recordings to the local libraries and this seemed like a good project too.) The USPS used to accept packages marked "Any Soldier/Marine/Sailor/Airman", but can no longe...
