Re: [POETRY] A E Housman: Selected Poetry - jo

Hi Silverquill Many thanks for your reply. I do seem to have lost confidence in this project, one way or another, and now think it would probably be best to abandon it, as my initial idea seems to be floored and there have been several questions about it's usefulness. To extend the compass of the pr...

Re: [POETRY] A E Housman: Selected Poetry - jo

See viewtopic.php?f=24&t=73082&p=1540997#p1540997 where confusion reigns. I think it best, that as I have caused total mayhem, that it would be sensible to abandon this doomed project.

Best wishes

Re: The Poetry of A E Housman

Thanks Tricia G. The project has been set up https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=73203 and I've even started to record, but nothing is yet uploaded.. But all this confusion (maybe my fault) has really put me off. I think that maybe, taking all of this into consideration, it may be best t...

Re: The Poetry of A E Housman

I'm a little lost Do you mean that you want to read the into to the Shropshire Lad then not read the Shropshire Lad or is this the intro then pick and chose from the SL or are you planning to read the intro to SL and then a selection of Housman poetry from all Housman's works including the SL ? Bec...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Very strange clicks at uneven intervals - sounds like something in the room. Check by un-plugging the mic and then recording with no mic for a few seconds. Are the clicks still there? If not there, then the clicks are coming through the mic. They don't sound like electrical interference so the mic m...

Re: [POETRY] A E Housman: Selected Poetry - jo

Just a quick question - should I read out the poem number for example 31 - or should it be the Roman Numerals - XXXI? If the Roman Numerals I'm not sure how these should sound? I suppose one just says the letter names LVX etc.(All of the poems have a number but only a few have titles as well).

Re: A E Housman: Selected Poetry

I'm not sure if what I have posted (the form) is correct? I so rarely do this that I always forget the correct procedure. (Project Code: EHx5vtkR)

I hope to start recording soon, but realise that I need a DPL.

Re: Recording booth

What do you have above the booth, on the ceiling? Ceilings often reflect quite a lot - so having a blanket or something similar over the top of the booth will make quite a difference.

But the difference is already excellent from the original.
