Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Will keep that in mind for future reference. :D Sadly there is no closet in the place I've ended up. The cupboard I'm keeping my clothes in is halfway up a wall, and although the cat can get in there, I'm not so sure about me. :P

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Should have known I'd have messed something up! Not sure how I'm going to get the sound to match so I can patch it though. I was in a carpeted room with quite a lot of stuff on the walls when I recorded the chapter and the temporary place I'm in now has a hardwood floor and bare walls and is really ...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Chapter 1 now PL OK! :thumbs: Yay! Have just uploaded Chapter 2. Wide range: sci-fi, fiction, non-fiction, horror, self-help. Just finishing a classic dystopian sci-fi. Previous book was WWII historical fiction. Haven't done any romance, children's or YA (for obvious reasons). Wow, quite a variety!...

Oh wow, you're a professional recording artist? That's amazing! What kind of stuff do you do? This is supposed to be fun. SO HAVE FUN!! Seriously. Cut loose! Haha okay, I'll try! :lol: Will try to think of it as quality assurance instead of being caught out. And thank you for your patience with the ...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Sorry this has taken so long, it's taken a while to pluck up the courage to have another go. Have edited the first chapter - I really hope it's okay this time and I'm not just making myself look stupid again! No idea how to tell how many dBs an Audacity project is, but it passed Checker. The fragmen...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Thanks for being so understanding. New computer arrived today :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Hopefully should be up and running quickly - hadn't realised quite how slow and worn out the old one was.

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Thank for the tips and the support. I'm honestly not sure the computer will handle the extra plug-in - it's gone from being okay-but-slow to sometimes barely even handling a text editor over the last few days. If it's okay with you guys I'm going to wait to do any more recording/editing until the ne...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

I have Checker, but can’t always run it. My computer is 8 years old and really struggles. Very often by the time I finish recording the file, I have to do a full reboot before I can even edit. And sometimes just trying to open another app afterwards kills the whole thing. I finally convinced myself ...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

The overall volume is slightly below spec at 85.8db. Huh, that's weird, I haven't changed any settings since the last time I recorded. Might take me a while to figure out how to use the amplifier thing well enough not to end up with it going from too quiet to deafening! Will try to sort the other t...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Thanks for being nice about it. :mrgreen: Definitely used to be quicker on the uptake than this!

Anyway, Chapter 1 is now up in the MW (unless it didn't work). Chapters 2 and 3 are recorded and have been for a week, I need to stop procrastinating on editing! :roll: :help:

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Oh, forgot to say, if you're wondering why I'm pronouncing "Ayesha" as "Assha", it's because there's a pronunciation guide in the first book in the series that says that's how you say it. At least, I think that's how it wanted me to say it - there are about 5 different ways you could read the pronun...

Re: [SOLO] Wisdom's Daughter by H Rider Haggard-mtf

Yay, we made it to Going Solo! :D :D Section 0 done - hopefully without too many mess-ups. It's very short. Forgot how long some of Haggard's sentences are though, think my lung capacity will have doubled by the time I'm a few chapters in! https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/wisdomsdaughter_00_...
